happy thanksgiving!

I just finished mixing up a pumpkin cheesecake with ginger snap crust and I'm starting to get more excited about tomorrow's big feast!  I'll share the recipe on Friday for Cook, Bake, Sew & Tell, if it turns out as well as the batter tasted!
*****
If you are scrounging for one last side dish recipe try this Butternut Squash with Baby Spinach.  If you don't have Wegmans basting oil - it's just grapeseed oil with garlic, thyme and parsley.  You could totally make up your own. It's super easy, pretty, and delicious!

 I started making this wreath yesterday, but ran out of ornaments.  I think I'm going to add in some red too.  Just because.

I have a problem with cute bottles.  I never want to throw them away.  Here's a few...

I'm thankful for so many things,  but these top the list:
  • my husband
  • the anticipation of a new baby in the family
  • the babies I have
  • sleep :)
  • amazing friends, who keep me sane and happy

Hey! I started making that same wreath and ran out of ornaments too! I thought 50 would be enough. Not even close. Have a great holiday. :)

I like your wreath! I was thinking of making one like that as well! :) And I like bottles too. I kept some while I was in high school and then after some time ended up getting rid of them, but you've just re-inspired me. :)
