Thanksgiving Week

I could write a whole book on all the things I am thankful for, but to save a lot of time, I will just say a few and show you an adorable outfit!!  We went to my mom’s today for our family Thanksgiving and had such an awesome time!  I have two little girls, and my brother has a son and two little girls so there is always a lot of fun and squealing to be had.  My grandmother who will be 93 in January loves watching all of her great grandkids run around and play, and I love the joy it puts on her face.  My mom started working on dinner the night before making all the casseroles and prepping everything.  I came early in the morning and helped bake the rest and get things set up.  I love being the “junior chef” around my mom.  She can cook up one hell of a meal!!

With that said, the first thing I am thankful for is my family!  I have one crazy, insane, and nutty family, but I love every one of them.  I am thankful to God everyday for blessing me with the family I have.  He knew exactly who could handle us and our family just keeps getting bigger!  The second thing I am most thankful for is the food on our table.  I know many people around this world don’t get to experience a table full of home cooked food.  I am so thankful that I have never been hungry, or thirsty.  I truly pray for those that are less fortunate.  The third and final thing I will talk about is being thankful for our health.  My grandmother is almost 93 and pretty healthy for her age.  I have two very healthy children, and my husband and I are healthy.  After a cancer scare with my mom we realize it is the little things that matter most in life!  And I am thankful for that!!

Love her!  I am named after her.  We both have the same middle name Dreatha!!
I always like to dress nice when we have family functions and I love wearing our clothing that we sell at PipLey Vintage, so with that said I am going to show you how I decided to wear one of our sweaters with our Abby Skinny Jean by Liverpool.
