Thanksgiving Favorites

Y'all!  There are only 45 days until Christmas!!  We are officially in November, and Thanksgiving is only 17 days away!!!  With holiday season around the corner, I have been living on Pinterest looking up recipes, gift ideas and decorating DIYs.  If you have never discovered Pinterest, shoot me a comment with your email, and I will totally invite you because it is in fact, amazing!!  It is super easy and a great way to find and save ideas for later.  Make it happen people!

In honor of the holiday season, I am posting a few of my favorite Thanksgiving pins!  I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do, and can incorporate some of them into your holiday!

1. Buttermilk Pie
This one is amazing!!  I love it!  Joshua loves it!  My family loves it!  It happens!  I found this one last year from Amy of Positively Splendid, and I was super ready to make this pie!  The directions were really easy to follow and the result was wonderful!!  Joshua and I literally ate a whole pie in a day (which was not good for the whole weight loss thing, but it was a holiday right?)!  If you like chess pies, and vanilla, this is for you.  It is basically like a vanilla chess pie, so don't worry about a buttermilk flavor because there isn't one!  Believe me, it is worth it people!!

2. Dollar Store Decorations
Sometimes, our decorating budget is a lot smaller than we want it to be.  This is why we are always looking for the best deals!  Joshua is always like, "How much did that cost?" and I really get excited when I buy things from the Dollar Store!  I can be like, "$10!"  I found this post from Rachel over at Useful Beautiful Home.  She has so many great DIY projects and they are all pretty low cost.  I don't know about you, but low cost or free is always in my budget!

3. Printables
I love printables!  I love decorating with them too!  I hopped over to Pretty My Party with Christy, and she rounds up her favorite free printables.  I really like several of them, and the best way to use them is to save them as a picture, send them to some place like Walgreens and get them developed as pictures.  I have done that several times with several different holidays!  Simple, and you can reuse them year after year!!

4. "Thankful For" Table Cards
I found these over at Lovesome by Erin, and she has them for things she is thankful for.  One of the ways my family uses them is as seating cards.  The cards say "Thankful For" and then a name.  We list the names of people present at our Thanksgiving table, and people we wish were still present in our lives.  It is a sweet way to remember everyone special to us on a day dedicated to giving thanks!

5. Roasting a Turkey Infographic

I found this over at Visual News, and I love it!  I look at it as a refresher every year!  Every year, Joshua and I try to throw a Thanksgiving get-together with our friends and people bring some of their favorites.  I always do the turkey, and this little beauty is so super helpful!!  Sometimes, you just need a good base to throw a great Turkey Day get-together!  

These are my favorite Thanksgiving pins, and I hope you like them and can use them!  What are some of your favorite holiday ideas or finds?  Like I said, let me know!
