I'd love to hear about everyone's Thanksgivings.
The tradition in my family is to see a movie on Thanksgiving day. This year's was Life of Pi, which was okay. It stressed me out, but was really pretty. After that we make some kind of dinner that involves fish (since my sister and I are not-super-strict vegetarians) and potatoes (because who doesn't love potatoes). Then we eat that at the dining room table and go to bed.
We've never gone shopping for Black Friday, because we usually reserve that day to go and visit our extended family in North Carolina. There we have a pot-luck type thing and the desserts are usually the best part. My whole family sits around and complains about menopause or "youngins these days" because most of my family is post 50 year old women and/or rednecks. But really, I enjoy it.
I thought these photos just screamed "fall". Or "FALL!!" Since they're screaming. Am I right?
 This year I woke up early to try and shop at Goodwill, but there was no one there and not a sale in sight! I mean, I don't know how much more of a sale Goodwill can have, since they have a dollar rack every weekend, but still. I was disappointed.
 I also bought a couple things at Ruche's and Modcloth's sales. Can't wait for them to get here!

  1. Pretty! Glad you had a good Thanksgiving.

  2. Oh, my goodness that romper is SO PRETTY! You look beautiful. Love that sweater! You always have the best sweaters...
    I didn't know you were a (somewhat) vegetarian! Me too! I only eat fish and very occasionally.

    1. Thankyou!
      That's so cool! I go off and on with eating fish... only when for special family dinners or when there's nothing else to eat at a restaurant haha!

  3. haha my brother in law doesn't like potatoes! what a crazy, huh? those glasses look so pretty on you!

    1. Haha wow! Then what does he put his gravy on?

  4. I have a polka dot romper too! It is one of my favorite items...I love how you styled yours. The photos look so fun and I love the print mixing with the cardigan. Such pretty leaves around you too! My family does a lot of cooking/baking for hours and then we sit around the table for hours afterwords eating and chatting :) It has become slightly different now that there are small children in the family, but that just makes it all the more entertaining!

    1. Thanks!
      That sounds like a lovely, picture-perfect thanksgiving!

  5. Rats, I should have thought to look on Mod Cloth for a sale, I totally forgot about that! I went to my thrift store on Black Friday too and it was the same thing. Granted most of the stuff there can be snagged for $5 or under, but I was still bummed out too. And you family sounds funny- I'd be the youngin eating pie and laughing at their comments :)

  6. What beautiful photographs! You have such charming style and a lovely blog here!
