How's your gobble hanging

....And I'm not talking about the thingie in the back of your throat. With that, a Happy Friday y'all! It's the last I'm thankful Friday of the year and I just want to start out by saying how thankful I am in general. It's almost too difficult to name one specific thing. I am so very thankful for the beautiful Northern California weather, having a nice home to sleep in, food in my belly, a flatter belly than last year. A healthy and precious two year old, a great family, the ability to entertain myself and be amused by my own jokes (you would be surprised how often this comes in handy). I am thankful for my love of cooking, for this blog (which is way better than any therapy that I could ever pay for). I am truly thankful for being able to spend my days with you and have you let me into your world. I pray that I continue to see and embrace these blessings as well as stay focused on all of the positive throughout the new year! Wooooooo, now that's one big THANKS!

I also want to say how thankful I was for this DIY this week. It made me laugh and smile because it's craziness is super necessary for my Thanksgiving holiday, as well as, completely ridiculous (which makes it perfect in my world). Without further Mr. Turkey before his transformation....

And with the help of a drill, a screw, an old recycled plastic lid, and a little gold shimmery spray paint... this beast was born.

And what do you with said beast?! You use it as a personalized cupcake stand to place at each guests spot around the table.....oh yea! Can you handle that awesomeness?

I Topped the cupcake with a little Pilgrim silhouette I cut out of black paper so it could totally help rock out the turkey pedestal. I got the turkey at Michaels (with a coupon) for $3.59 and everything else I already had at home. I can't help it, it tickles my feathers. I will show you it as part of a tablescape on Monday (where I also have one easy, last minute Thanksgiving project to share with you sweet folks)!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend & like I have the past few Fridays, I invite you all to comment what you are thankful for!

*Also no turkeys were hurt in the making of this post & for anyone wondering about my crazy Twilight obsession....Yes, my non tween self did make it to the opening last night of Breaking Dawn part II....I may or may not have been stared at suspiciously, I may have yawned one too many times revealing my age...but I had a blast! xoxo

  2. I'll try that again...
    Here's a little tip for you:
    When you know a screw or nail will be visible, cut a piece of plastic (or paper) straw and slide over the screw/nail. Continue with your spray painting etc...
    Happy (almost) Turkey Day!

  3. Lol! You and a can of gold spray paint is like peanut butter and jelly! Super cute. I think my craft turkey day project will be putting up festive paper lanterns (you know like you used to make in kindergarten). I am thankful for the ability to shop for a ton of food and preparations for the upcoming holiday and for the time and health to prepare it all.

  4. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
