So, I volunteered to host Thanksgiving at our house this year!!! Haha. Silly Me. I just thought maybe I could help out this year and do something, like host Thanksgiving. Well... I sort of forgot that we didn't have a full set of dishes and flatware that all matched.... let alone a platter big enough for a turkey! We are supposed to have eight people for Thanksgiving, including ourselves. It should be interesting, no the less.
Everyone is bringing something, so I don't have to worry so much about preparing a HUGE feast. :) Carlos' parents are bringing a ham and mashed potatoes, Pat is bringing cranberry salad and desert, my mom is bringing the stuffing, and Fran is brining the wine! All I have to worry about is making a turkey and my famous green bean casserole! I am seriously not tooting my own horn there, people actually REQUEST for me to make it. Then we just have the this'n'that stuff. HAHA I am pretty sure I will forget something. But this should be fun :D
Today, Carlos and I spent the day looking for new flatware and dishes... we found some. Talk about an adventure. Those things do not come cheap. Gotta hit up multiple stores and really check your options for certain price ranges you want to stay within. Kohls, HomeGoods, Pier1, CostCo, WalMart, Target, & Tuesday Morning. Like I said, adventure. HAHA! Poor Carlos.... I am picky. But it was fun! It isn't everyday you get to run around and look at so many sets of dishes! Haha! We also found a nice platter.
Tomorrow my mission is to find tables cloths and napkins! I have an idea of what I want and Carlos was burned out by the end of the day. So, I am going solo tomorrow. :) It's all good. I know that I have a lot more to do and get, but we will see. I just don't want to be looking for things the week of Thanksgiving. I just want to be able to worry about my food and cleaning my HOUSE! We don't want parents in our messy house!
If you read this.... thanks. Because all I did was ramble about looking for plates & forks. We will see how it all turns out! And maybe these posts will actually become INTERESTING.
