When is Thanksgiving?!


If I'm not careful, this could be my Thanksgiving menu.

One of my Twitter friends, Stacey Huggins, sent out a tweet yesterday that made me break out in a cold sweat.

shuggins1229 (Stacy Huggins) Holy Fried Turkey! Why didn’t anyone tell me Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks from TODAY?!

Holy fried turkey indeed!!  For some reason I thought I was in the three weeks range.  Yikes!

Part of the reason I’ve lost the calendar is this has been a great week for Alesya Bags.  Wendy sent me 8 new hardware samples, two leather samples and we decided on a direction for zipper pulls.  She also mailed me about a dozen interior fabric sample.  These are all exciting details that bring the bag to life.

But with one tweet, now I have a list of things I’m concerned about having nothing to do with work.  Because you know what comes RIGHT after Thanksgiving – Christmas and the New Year!  In no particular order, here’s my holiday list of concern for the moment:

  • Thanksgiving Tablescape
  • Thanksgiving Menu
  • Thanksgiving Final Guest List
  • Holiday Cards
  • Holiday Photos
  • Freezing Cookies
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Ribbons & Tags
  • Getting the house ready (read: clean) for guests
  • Organizing the Pantry
  • Gifts, Gifts, Gifts
  • Christmas Meals
  • Around Christmas Meals
  • Dessert for New Year’s Day
  • Football
  • Outside Decor
  • Lights & Blinking (NO!)
  • Fresh Greens
  • Inside Tree
  • Homemade ornaments
  • Candles
  • Water Glasses
  • Sequins

Please tell me your list is at least this long.  Please.

While I’ll still be posting on the weekend from time to time, I’m now going to incorporate my weekend themed posts into the week.  Sometimes I wish I could just focus on “work” during the week and “fun” during the weekend, but I think we all know that’s not how it goes.  Time to make this blog reflect real life a little more.

    EEEKKK! Can I help with the sequins? Seems like an easy one. Is this personal or house decor or both? Really, anything at all from here I can do from a website let me know.

    Well, at least you do HAVE a list, which I think is very organised and enviable… my holiday season is usually “this year I will…” and then I end up doind none of it….
