Happy Stressgiving

Hey, Loves!
I had a different post planned for today but I just haven’t gotten to it yet. I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year and as much as I promised myself not to get stressed out….I’m totally freaking stressed out.

As of right now, I have to take the dog to the groomer, go pick up my turkey, go get my phone off my desk at work where I left it last night (doh!), make one more stop at Target for a few last minute things including a replacement for the doughnuts that were supposed to be for Friday morning that my children just sniffed out of their hiding place and snarfed down while I was upstairs starting the 5 loads of laundry I have to finish by tonight.  I also need to change all the sheets, mop the floors, dust, vacuum, clean the bathrooms, put away laundry and start cooking. And it’s not that I’ve been procrastinating, honest. Last night I was up late, grocery shopping, cleaning out the fridge, the pantry, and the linen closet in the guest bathroom. That’s when all the lights in the guest bathroom decided to short out and explode. So my family will be peeing and showering in the dark while stepping on tiny shards of glass. Awesome.

Oh, and Husband casually announced that he was going to go out after work tonight with some co-workers and would be home late.  I gave him that look. You know the one? The blank stare down, “So help me God I will end you. Just try me.” look and so I think maybe he’ll be home on time. 
Other than that…I’m totally freaking jazzed for Thanksgiving. Truly, I am. Or, I will be. As soon as I start drinking…..Is noon too early? Noon seems about right. 

A glass of wine or four two and I’m sure the scene around here will start looking like this in no time.

But for real, I’m really grateful for all my blessings. Like all the extra wine I have in my fridge right now. And my family. But mostly, right now it’s the wine.

Happy Thanksgiving! 

And by the way, make sure to head over to Carly’s blog Lipgloss and Crayons today! I did a guest post featuring a delicious holiday side dish recipe….and a yummy, festive cocktail! While you’re there, look around Carly’s blog. She’s my fashion idol. And even though I was in middle school when she was born, I totally want to be her when I grow up.

    The few times that we've hosted Thanksgiving we have started the day with a Bloody Mary bar. I find that drinking in the morning really makes me a better (read: less uptight) hostess.

    Good grief! This makes me need a nap. Did you check out the martini recipes I posted yesterday? Methinks you'll be needing one in oh…about 2 hours. 😉 Good Luck…it will all get done. And if it doesn't, blame it on your husband. Happy Thanksgiving!!

    My husband always picks the most inopportune times to booze with coworkers. I believe that kind of a-hole f$@kery is genetic! Start. Drinking. Save yourself!
    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Ps did your darn mug ever arrive? I swear it shipped!!

    Thanks for returning the follow and sharing my button! Wow, with all you've been up to too! Wondering if your thanksgiving ended up looking like that picture. My hubby's family doesn't drink, they are a nice group, but I think a little wine would make them so much more fun! 😉
