I haven't earned my wings yet

Today's outfit was inspired by the October 2011 issue of People Style Watch Magazine:
I realize this is the second time I am wearing a striped top under a jacket this week but to mix things up a bit today I wore my short sleeved longer top instead of the long sleeve one.
I don't think I would have ever thought of mixing a tie dye blue scarf with a striped top and army green jacket which is why the photo caught my attention.

 Added the angel wing earrings...

Had a very nice Thanksgiving potluck at PreSchool today. I stayed true to my diet and ate my turkey/celery rolls. Kids made the cutest turkey hats:

Unfortunately my daughter took almost 2 hours to go down for her nap and only napped for 30 minutes. So we were quite late leaving the house for Sea World Member night. Picked up my step dad as my mom was working and went together. Got super lucky finding a parking spot of someone leaving, got into all the shows last minute and found good seats. Kids loved being out in the dark. Their favorite was the short 3D Polar Express movie. It is just amazing seeing everything from their eyes. Makes everything so much more special.

After getting the kids to bed half hour late. We started our 'Turkey' project. Re-arranged the shelves in the fridge to fit a big size cleaning bucket filled with a 20lb turkey and salt water brine! Tomorrow, I am hoping my husband can take the kids to their gym class and occupy them for a few hours while I get the turkey roasted with this herb paste I am going to make, bake my sweet potato casserole, set the table for 14 and take out appetizers! Somewhere between this will be getting ready myself!

Also participating in the 
Friend Friday, 
hosted by the lovely Katy of Modly Chic blog 
discussing what we are thankful for.

Needless to say and not caring how cliche it sounds I am truly thankful for my wonderful and dear friends and family. Without their love and support life would be so hard and dull. Which is why I constantly create get together's to invite our friends and family or do events with them. I love the memories we create!
And not a day goes by where I thank God over and over for my kids. Because they are the true joy in my life and I truly cherish every moment I spend with them and wish time can stop and they can stay this cute and innocent and loving. Although I also look forward to the changes each age is going to bring in the future.
