Short and Sweet
I've had a very busy weekend; dancing and hanging out with friends on Friday, dancing on Saturday and working on a grant proposal project for the program design class that I'm taking.
I did take a break from the homework to run out with my lifelong friend Suzi to look for a new Christmas trees for her. She was a very reluctant photographer so I only have two outfit pictures today, even though I loved my outfit. I just couldn't get her to take any more!
Here's the breakdown;
Vest: Capri, thrifted at my favorite consignment shop, The Closet Exchange
Pants: Ponte knit boot cut, New York and Company
Cream Turtleneck: thrifted
Boots: Naturalizer Glassie

I didn't mention it in my precious posts, but my son Jayme helped cook the Thanksgiving dinner. He says he helped, I say he just bossed me around in the kitchen.
Nonetheless, I was grateful to have the help.
Our turkey day dinner was low key; just us, my boys and my grandson and daughter-in-law.
It was so nice to have this smaller gathering; low key, simple and sweet.
I made these wonderful spicy potato stacks that I found here on The Gardner's Cottage beautiful blog. The looked so pretty that I had to try them. I followed her link to the recipe on the Epicurious website. They were every bit as delicious as they look and were very easy to make. They made a big impression on my sons!
Yep, those are my dinner napkins that I had folded artfully.....now converted into bandanas. This is a better use for them ;)
Brady's dad is my oldest son, Dan.
I'm off to bed. I need some good sleep tonight to be prepared for tomorrow's long day ahead.
Good night everyone.
