Along the Journey Prep for Thanksgiving!

Thanks for joining me here today! I like to share the projects we’ve been working on lately and a little bit of what’s going on in our everyday lives with you.

I appreciate you being here my friend!

Thanksgiving plans

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Are you hosting this year? How are your plans coming along?

We are still finalizing our plans as far as the food is concerned. But we are hosting the meal at our house so I’m pretty excited about that!

We will get a fresh turkey from a local farmer. And we will probably have the usual, mashed potatoes, cornbread dressing, gravy, pumpkin pie, and all the other goodies.

I’m getting hungry thinking about it!

hostess gifts

If you’re attending Thanksgiving at someone else’s home this year, consider bringing a small gift to show your appreciation for their hospitality. It’s always nice to show up with a gift in hand, right?

I’ve gathered some hostess ideas for you later in this post. They are all from Walmart and are reasonably priced. Many are on Walmart’s Early Black Friday sale! Some of them would be great Christmas gifts as well.

Giving a little token of gratitude to others is a good idea too. The mailman or Amazon delivery person, the neighbor who watches over your house if you are gone for a couple of days or a friend who is always there for you.

You can find some very inexpensive ways to show your gratitude to these special people using my free fall printables.

recent YouTube video

Remember a couple of weeks ago I shared a picture of the house my dad grew up in in his home state of Texas?

I was able to see that house because one of my sisters and I took my mom back to Texas so she could see her hometown of Beaumont! When my parents were first married, they lived in that house!

I shared the adventure over on YouTube this week.
