mint striped boat neck tee...thrifted ~ heart locket...gift
folk roses print Walk in the Woods skirt...made by me ~ Italian leather belt...thrifted
My Thanksgiving outfit. This is such a fun ensemble to wear, with it's whimsical mishmash of folk print and nautical stripe, while the gold accents of the locket and buckle lend a simple, woodsy touch.
I did my hair in a very quick, go-to method for putting some curl in my 'do, and though I didn't get a picture of the finished result, I have some quick snapshots of the method I used. I have plans for some hairstyle tutorial videos in the near future - just as soon as I get some recording equipment set up;) When then happens, I'll do this style properly from start to finish, but till then, enjoy this simple step-by-step for inspiration!
The night before, put your hair in a simple braid, tying it off with the elastic band about 6-7 inches from the end. Section off the remaining hair in 4-5 strands using foam rollers. Apply hairspray if desired...=)
Enjoy your lovely night's rest - this method is so nice to sleep on!
carefully remove rollers, and fluff the individual curls into separate ringlets with your fingers.
leave loose, or style as desired! Yesterday, I twisted all of my hair into a half bun, leaving the curled ends free, but semi-confining the bulk of my tresses in anticipation of preparing food and playing wild games of Pictionary later on;)
I didn't get a picture of the finished style, but I'm planning to do a video soon...
We spent the day at some dear friend's house along with two other families. It was a wonderful day of feasting, fellowship, and merriment - besides Pictionary, some did puzzles or Scrabble, some read and discussed scripture passages, some went hunting (no luck:) and some *ahem* had multiple blissful napping sessions... There was a giant paper tree taped to the door, and everyone wrote things they were thankful for on leaves cut from construction paper. The door was soon a crowded blaze of multi-colored emblems of gratitude.
And this morning, my sister and I got up early, before anyone else was awake...
...snuck over the to the trailer, and loaded up on delectable leftovers! We picked up another early-bird sister on the way, and all rushed in a group back to my tent for a party. The stove once blazing, we snuggled up with our stuffing, turkey, cranberry sauce, hot chocolate, and pumpkin pie to watch The Moon-Spinners. =D
So much nicer than squirming through frenzied crowds to empty my wallet... though one of these years, I think it would be fun to brave town on the third Friday in November;)
I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful day yesterday, full of joy and gratitude.
Have a wonderful evening, y'all!
