Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! How was your holiday? Our Thanksgiving was perfect, in fact, if the way yesterday went becomes our Thanksgiving tradition, I think it just may be my new favorite holiday. We started the day off with some baking and Alice's Restaurant (the Arlo Guthrie film), went on a long hike in the afternoon, returned to cook our holiday feast (while listening to the audio version of Alice's), and finished the day by going to see The Muppets! It was awesome. Alice's Restaurant is always a big part of our Thanksgiving, the classic rock station back home plays it on repeat on Thanksgiving day and we usually listen to it while driving from house to house. It was so nice to spend the day together and listen to it while we cooked.

Are you hitting the sales today? I'm headed into work today, but even if I wasn't, i don't think I would be shopping. Too much mayhem! I will, however, be checking out a few sales online:

Noble Town Vintage

Lulu's has a great sale going on today, you can save up to 90% off!

Ruche is offering 15% off with the code BFSALE15, I would snag this comfy striped dress!

Happy and happy (and thankful) weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving! Ps- HOW GOOD WAS MUPPETS!? Perfect happy way to celebrate being thankful for the third greatest gift of all ;)

Sounds like you had a great holiday! I'm DYING to see the muppets but I haven't convinced anyone to go with me! Maybe I'll do the solo thing.

I avoided the stores on Friday too- it seems like every year black friday gets crazier and crazier. Did you see the story about the woman in California who PEPPER SPRAYED other people during the rush into a store at like 5 AM? SICK!

also, i tried to e-mail you, but i just can't find your address, so i'll tell you here:

i had the weirdest dream last night and you were in it. ha. i know that sounds so creepy, but i guess i was thinking about blogging, so you popped in for some reason. i just read the hunger games books, so my dream was a version of that, but it was in this big brick building and you were there too and helped me explode the building so the game ended and we all could win and then as we were leaving, you gave me a few of your dresses to borrow. ha. there's more, but that's the gist of it. how bizarre, right? but at least you know that the dream version of you is a very helpful and generous person :)

@WildChild: That's crazy! Your dream sounds like a great adventure, one that I would probably love too, I also love explosives (a product of growing up in the sticks where there wasn't much to do). I would totally lend you dresses in real life as well! XX
