Happy Thanksgiving Week! We are now officially entering into my favorite time of year. It’s that time that runs from Thanksgiving all the way through the new year and I love every minute of it!
I know it’s been a bit since I posted, but I have been crazy busy. Between school, finalizing the details on the family room, and getting all my shopping done before my surgery in a few weeks, I feel like I’ve been a little overwhelmed.
By the way…I did order a coffee table but I chose one that was completely different from the rest and I LOVE it! I went with this one from World Market. It is has a live edge on top, but it isn’t overly woodsy or rustic. The table is long and narrow and has a very slim design. Just what I needed. Plus, World Market is still offering 40% all furniture.
On to the post…my daughter turned 14 a few weeks ago but we had her family party yesterday. It was the only day that seemed to work for everyone and I’m glad we waited. It gave me a little more time to plan. Right now she is into pinks, blushes and golds. We just redid her room in those same colors and I have to admit, I’m a fan too. I started with the peachy pink napkins and the gold cacti as a jumping point and everything came together from there.
Each kid got to take home a cactus with their name on it as a favor. Funny thing, even the boys were digging them! As always, I created a menu of her favorite items, and the mom of a former student made these amazing cookies for everyone. How great are they?
So take a few moments and have a look. It weighs on the side of picture overload, but I couldn’t help it with the flowers. They were my favorite part. Have a great day! xo
