How to create a simple and rustic Give Thanks place setting | #givethanks:

Hell yeah... it's Friday. The last Friday before Thanksgiving, Black Friday and the official start to the holiday season. Yeah... that's next week. Next week, at the time I am writing this now,  I will most likely be snuggled up on my couch with wine and Netflix, fire and dog... full as a tick and enjoying a quiet Thanksgiving night. God almighty... this year has gone by so quickly. I can't quite wrap my brain around that but I have a few more weeks to figure it out. For now it's time to talk favorites with Amanda and all of you of course! Gotta start with food of course...


Martha Stewart Cornbread, Wild Mushroom and Pecan Dressing is one of my southern stand by's for the last 10 years or so. Seriously, you can't go wrong with this one!

I am a huge Rap/Hip-Hop/R&B fan and this tune has it all. His voice reminds me of a white Future. I like the slow mellow vibe... and the homage to Allen Iverson and basketball is cool too. And the gold grill... saweeeet!


Have you heard about the IG challenge that Helene and Taylor are doing? The hashtag is #myholidayspark and anything holiday goes, glorious triumph to miserable failure and it starts now... Go.


I have stumbled onto the most perfect food blog in the existence of the blogosphere... Half Baked Harvest. I really can't put it into words because the pictures are just a feast for the eye and the recipes are the most amazing combinations of culinary goodness like ever. Theighan Gerard is a genius. And do also go get lost in her Instagram feed...

Since my last two boot purchases occurred several years ago it was time to reinvest this year in a pair of black which I talked about here and these beautiful brown suede over the knee beauties... the Tiberia Over The Knee Boots by Nine West. Girls... super comfy, stretchy and chic.
