I can't even believe that it is already the 8th of November.
Seriously, where does all the time go?
This weekend I am off to Salt Lake City to see my favorite gal; we have shoe and dress shopping, yoga and noshing on the agenda-- But with this weekend spared in the name of fun, that leaves me with only 2 weeks to get all my Thanksgiving party details ironed out-- throw in my inclination to procrastinate, and I am scared I might be doomed.
We have the menu planned out already-- but I am having a hard time deciding how to decorate the table. This will be the first time we've hosted R's parents for dinner and while I am sure they will hardly notice any imperfections-- I will be stressing myself thin over every detail.
I was thinking about trying this Green Tea Cake recipe; first and foremost, I love the color and secondly , I love green tea ice cream, so I can only imagine how good it is in cake form.
....plus it's something a little different than the typical seasonal fare. I mean really, I want to lick my computer screen now. I am not a baker.. so a part of me is thinking for the sake of having a conniption free day I should stick to what I know.
Since I am an aesthetics junkie, I am really hoping I can find Thanksgiving decor that meshes well with what I already have happening in my apartment-- Looks like I will need to find some good DIY projects and get crafty. Has anyone seen anything worth mention on pinterest or elsewhere? I am having a hard time finding stuff I like.
I think keeping it simple is probably my best bet-- but now I need something to wear.
The agony of being a domesticated woman.
