Thanks Is What I’m Giving 10 comments

The holiday season is here y’all! I love, love, love this time of year. The week of Thanksgiving all the way through to New Years’ Day. Family, fun, lots of food and libations, anticipation, and new beginnings. The cold front (40s and 50s) came through this past week here in the New Orleans area and hasn’t left yet. Brrrr! But it makes the holidays authentic to me.


The Deuce is out all week from school. That’s how it’s done here in Louisiana. I’m trying to find lots of things for him to do while I tweak my blog this week. Don’t be surprised BAW readers if you see my layout change two three four times over the next couple of days. Get it right, get it tight! (In my Bubba Sparxxx voice)


I found this DIY placemat on Pinterest and made it my own! Gratitude is my attitude.

    It tickles me every time I come here and you’ve made a change – that is so me. Looking good, I like the way the blog is separated now from the sidebar stuff. Love that placemat. First things for me is always my family and our health. We’re all good.

      Ha! After all the changes I have made, I went back to the theme that I chose when I first moved to WordPress. I’ll be explaining why in my next post.

      I know what it’s like to be away from family during the holidays. I experienced that a lot when we lived in Michigan.

    We will be spending the weekend sightseeing in Los Angeles and having Thanksgiving dinner with my brother and sister-in-law. They throw a big, themed party every year for family and friends. About thirty of us will be enjoying a “Country Chic” Thanksgiving. Enjoy your holiday!

      That sounds like fun! My husband and I had 40 people over for Thanksgiving two years ago. It was a lot of work, but we had a great time. Have fun in LA, Mo. Happy Thanksgiving!
