Thanksgiving with the DIY Housewives


I feel like I just finished the dishes from last year’s Thanksgiving dinner, how about you?

Now, here it is November 2, 2016 and we have about 3 weeks left to prepare our Thanksgiving feast.  Well, sort of.  Things are a little different for us this year because we won’t be hosting.  I admit, I do feel a little weird happy about that.  It’s been a long time since I had that day off.  What will I do with myself?  Watch football (no way)?  Watch my Dad make his famous gravy (possibly)?

Thanksgiving with the DIY Housewives

Wait a minute.  I think I just answered my own question.  Did you see those cute Thanksgiving ideas from the DIY Housewives?  There’s still a million things I can do to help even though I’m not hosting, including making this “Cranberry Pecan Pie”…

Can you imagine the look on the face of the hostess when you hand him/her this beauty?

Or, I could always help with the table or other decorating “duties” 😆 ?  I could even bring the hostesses (My Mom & Dad) a gift like a big yellow mum…


Or even a  beautiful handmade magnolia wreath, or little pear placards.  Thanks to the DIY Housewives it will be easy…
