FRIDAY FAVORITES...THANKSGIVING EDITION

Can you really truly believe Thanksgiving is next week? Wowzer, but I am ready for some of mom's turkey and delicious fixings! Today (and last evening) I am conducting a big in-house moving sale. I staged it like a boutique and even have food and mulled cider. Wish you could all come. Eek it's getting close, in less than a month, we should be moving!! Wishing you a bountiful weekend as the Holiday prep begins. May it be joyous, relaxing and lots of fun!!

1. Family
Isn't that what Thanksgiving is all about! Monday, I shared with you the trip Mom and I took for her birthday. I'm super excited to report that one college boy comes home today and the other on Sunday. Going to try to get a family photo for cards while they're home and indulge in lots of food and laughter! Here is what our 3 sons have been up to:

This guy, who comes home today, participated the Indiana University Dance-a-Thon for Riley Children's Hospital. He danced all night Saturday and raised more than $500. 


This guy, who comes home Suday, is not studying to be a Priest, but he dressed up as one at a Purdue Party. 

The youngest finally got to play the last two football games of the season, here he is with his buddies on the night of a BIG 'W" and 19 degree wind chill. #coldestgameever 


Mr. Nine got these for me last Christmas and I was so excited to find them while digging through Holiday stuff. SOOOO Cozy and one of my favorite gifts. Get em' for the snuggly ladies in your life!
Don't my feet look cozy!!

I love to give food as gifts, and Harry and David are some of the best, in taste, quality and presentation. The classic pears, apples and cheese is so pretty.

VELVET TOUCHES & TBB STYLE LINK-UP

I have been dreaming of throwing together an outfit like this for a long time and I am so excited how this came together. The tie velvet touches on the sweater sleeves are what sealed the deal for me. 
  

This sweater is so cozy and I knew when I saw it I'd want to pair it with the coveted Brixton Baker Boy Hat and my Coconuts Over The Knee Boots. I think the sweater would look great with jeans too. 
  
There was no doubt the necklace had to be a choker

BAKED BRIE BITES


What a winner in the appetizer department! You will find me making these throughout the holiday season! They are the perfect size to pop the whole thing in your mouth.....and wait for it.....there will be a party flavor explosion happening when this app hits your taste buds!! 
Yum  




I first bought Bacon Jam to use for my Brie and Bacon Jam Dip but when I found this new one, I decided to try it for this recipe and I'm so glad I did. The boys liked these even better than the dip. Best part....these are so easy but look so elegant and taste so scrumptious! You can literally assemble these in 10 minutes, pop em' in the oven and bam...10 minutes later you have the BEST apps to place in  front of your family and guests.


What you'll need

BAKED BRIE BITES
Ingredients
2 (15 count) mini phyllo pastry shells
I Jar Bacon Jam (you could use other savory jams or red pepper jelly)
1 (8 oz) wheel of Brie cheese, rind removed
30 whole Pecans as desired
Course Sea Salt
Parsley

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Remove phyllo shells from the freezer and arrange on a baking sheet. Fill each she'll with 1/2 teaspoon of the jam. Cut the Brie into 30 small pieces and place on top jam. Top with pecans as desired (I do half with pecans and half without). Bake until cheese is melted, about 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle with course sea salt, garnish with parsley if desired and serve immediately. 








JAM ON IT! 
BUY SOME OF THIS JAM GOODNESS HERE FOR YOUR APPS & TASTEBUDS!!
This Sweet Chili Jam and Hot Pepper Jelly would be great with the Brie in these too.

HAPPY TUESDAY SWEET FRIENDS!
