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!!

From Amazon HERE and from Zappos HERE

AND They are packaged so cute too!

3. Week's Attire
The Loft top and pants

Nordstrom Chelsea28 top, 

Boutique Cardigan, The Loft Scarf and necklace, Macy's pants

4. Flannel
I don't like too heavy of a flannel but this lightweight one with the rust and navy colors was perfect to tie in front and shoe off my zippered jeans from Kohl's. 

More inspo




5. Misc. Fun
Lots of fun stuff and great gift ideas.

I got the satin gold table from Target to go by by couch in my office at the new house. Under $75 and soooo nice.

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.

I got a bunch of these from Target, the new Project 62 stuff. I got 2 for my office and 3 for the living room. They make a great cozy, accent pillow. At Christmas  I'll have them with red and grey and after with slate blue and grey. I got the sating gold table from Target to go by by couch in my office at teh new house. Under $75 and soooo nice

  4. Thankful for you! Look at the boys! I can tell who the party animal is LOL!!!! Kindred spirits but now I'm too old for those silly shenanigans that made me the party girl in college. I hope that sale is so rewarding - and I know it will be! I need to sell the contents of my house to pay some bills LOL! Darn this time of year! Food as gifts always and Harry & David is always a winner - one year I used them for client gifts. XO sweetest!

  8. Those slipper socks look so cozy. So glad your son got to play the last couple games of the season - and I know the coldest game ever night - it was a miserable cold night.

  17. Goodness, I'm finding myself getting excited about thanksgiving, turkey with all the trimmings and the family coming home ... and I don't even live in the States! And I'm getting super excited about the new house and think it so magical that move-in will be just before Christmas. Yes, your excitement is travelling across the pond at breakneck speed, I feel I'm part of The Nines family!

  27. Well all of our college kiddos coming home is a favorite for sure. We need to try and get a good Christmas card picture too. I'm so happy your #9 got to play even if it was fah-reezing. BRRR. Your feet do look super cozy. I don't miss the cold weather except for when it comes to super cozy clothes and such. I surely wish I could come to your sale. I know it's probably the cutest sale of all time. You've found some awesome things at Target for the house. I'm seriously about to die to see the new place so I can only imagine how excited you must be. Isn't Harry and David the best for sending gifts? We always send a big basket of goodies to Kent's parents from there. OK beautiful friend, that does it for me. Happy Weekend!!! Enjoy all those sweet boys being home❤️

  36. How on earth do you do all that you do? I mean, having a sale this weekend and preparing to move, working, blogging and doing life. That's a lot! Are you moving before Cmas? We hired a gal to have an estate sale after we moved 2 years ago. We left it all in the old house and she had it there and it was a huge success. I think I still kept too much stuff. :o)) Wishing you a wonderful thanksgiving week!
