What I Wore (and ate): Thanksgiving Edition

I have so much to be thankful for.  I am most thankful for all of my family and all my friends who are praying for our little one.  And not just tossing up a random prayer but y'all - I'm talking Prayer Warriors.  I am quite certain that God is being bombarded with prayer requests for our little girl. And what's really nice is that  there are times when I just don't think I can utter another prayer and then I get a text or an email and someone is reminding me that they are praying for her and that gives me such peace.  We are truly blessed.

I slaved all day in the kitchen.  Okay.  That's a lie.  My mom slaved for three days in the kitchen and not only invited our family over but my best friend and her family over as well.  A full house on Thanksgiving is the best kind!

We feasted on the following: (and it was ALL prepared by my mom)

Traditional Queso and Chips to start (didn't the Indians bring that?)
London Broil
Turkey
Ham
Mashed potato casserole
Sweet potato casserole
Green beans
Fancy slaw
Cranberry sauce
Deviled eggs
Refrigerator pickles
Gravy
Rolls
Pumpkin Crunch
Chocolate Cake
And it really seems like I'm forgetting a couple of things but that's all that I can remember.

It was all delicious and I think mom will probably take a nice 8 hour nap!

Here's what I wore:




Jacket: Motherhood
Shirt: Motherhood
Pants: Motherhood
(Why yes, I'm pregnant.  Why do you ask?)
Shoes: Target
Scarf: Cents of Style.com for about $3 and that included shipping

Check out what everyone else was wearing today at Fine Linen and Purple's Thanksgiving Link-up.

You look amazing! Soo much classier than me in the ( clean ) jammies I wore all day because it was just the six of us. : )

And your mother sounds amazing too!

Hugs and prayers for a peaceful weekend, my friend!
