Our Thanksgiving + Frances Moon's Birthday + Best of Cyber Monday

I hope everyone enjoyed a nice holiday week with loved ones.  Our week was busy with us hosting Thanksgiving and then Frances Moon's party two days later, but I thrive on that stuff.  I love entertaining and most of all having my family in town!  By Sunday however I was ready to crash, I even took a nap which I never do!

This year we had a meat free Thanksgiving, it was not by choice though.  We tried to deep fry our turkey and something was up with the oil and it just never got hot enough, so the turkey didn't totally cook through.  By the time we realized this it was 8:30 so we decided to forgo the turkey and just enjoy our side dishes.  Which honestly was fine by me.  I love the sides more than the turkey anyways.  
This picture makes me laugh so hard- real life.  Gotta love the holidays, everyone was thrilled about this picture being taken.

I was proud of my table setting this year.  I love that peonies come back out just in time for Thanksgiving and Frances Moon's birthday.  I rarely get to use my fine china so I always love decorating the Thanksgiving table.

My little turkey:)

Best part of hosting Thanksgiving is all the fab leftovers. I purposely made 2 pumpkin tarts so we would have extra.

Friday I did some black Friday shopping from home. Then headed out for happy hour with my family.
and imagine my surprise when I showed up to my parent's condo and my mom was wearing the same blouse!  Great Minds think alike!

The next day was Frances Moon's Birthday party.

These confetti balloons were such a hit with all the kids.  On the day of her birthday I blew up a few to surprise her in bed when she woke up.  Then I had the rest filled with helium for the party.

My favorite part of a party is always the food!

The birthday girl about to dominate her cake!

My sister and I both rocking Mara Hoffman.  She is due in 4 weeks and we are ready to meet that sweet baby!

Frances Birthday looked so fun! You are such a great host. I think you could seriously be an event planner and your food always has such great presentation and looks amazing. It is so funny about your mom and you wearing the same blouse because Friday I literally walked into my mom's house to go shopping and we had on the same blouse and we just started laughing.
