Thanksgiving Eve

‘Twas the day before Thanksgiving, friends!

This made me LOL!

So, today, I am staying home with my kiddos and we’re going to bake/prep all of the food we’re responsible for bringing to Thanksgiving lunch tomorrow.  After we’re done with that, we’re going to head to Dallas with Andrew for our traditional night before Thanksgiving supper.  We started this a few years ago, and it’s one of my favorite traditions.  Just my little family at dinner talking about what we’re thankful for and discussing all the fun we’re going to do during the Christmas season.

So, that’s my day.

I will be back on Friday with a little recap of my Black Friday Favorites, but in the meantime, I didn’t want you to miss out on the big Nordstrom’s Cyber6 Sale happening today through the 26th.  Details about that below!  If you’re a new Nordstrom shopper, now is the time to start because there are things up to 60% off for you to get this holiday season.  Plus, with free shipping, free returns, free alterations and the new curbside pick up (you can order online and then your stuff is delivered to your car!!),  they make holiday shopping SO EASY!

Before we see what’s on sale, let’s recap our Turkey Day menus…

My Thanksgiving Day Parade Breakfast Menu is totally easy for your tomorrow morning!

Hahahahaha!  Right?!

And then one more…

Thanksgiving Everything

…my Thanksgiving Everything post is HERE!

I could post these They make me laugh out loud!

Okay, what am I wearing this Thanksgiving?  My favorite AG jeans, booties and one of these sweaters…


RED SWEATER (it comes in many other colors!) and WEDGE BOOTIES

NAVY SWEATER and GRAY BOOTIES (now 33% off!)

…because sweaters and jeans are on repeat at my house.

Look how I mixed and matched some pieces I’ve already shown you with this cute scarf

…I wore it here to church and brunch with those velvet jeans and then again on Monday…

…with those wedge booties and turtleneck (and that faux leather jacket that I love too!).  I love a plaid scarf 🙂 .

When Nordstrom and ShopStyle asked me if I wanted to share my favorite finds on sale right now, I was like totally!  Who doesn’t want to buy holiday gifts/things to wear when they’re on sale?

Here’s what’s on sale right now.  It’s a little pre-Black Friday for you…

Two years ago, we went to Park City, UT and I wore this coat…

…which I still love so much!  It’s warm, it’s cozy, it’s a little over the top and it makes me super happy!  I noticed Top Shop has them again right now (in several colors!).  I know I’ll be topping my holiday wear with mine (and well into the winter too!).  It just makes everything a little more festive!

Looking for a quick gift idea?  I have used these Philosophy shower gel/bubble bath/bath/shampoo bottles of goodness for years and right now, they’re on sale…

Philosophy Apple Cider Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath • philosophy

Friends, from my family to yours, I want you to have the best Thanksgiving.  I am so thankful for many things this year including YOU.  You have loved on my family, prayed for us, encouraged me, and made me feel like your friend.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you.  Please know that I mean this with all my heart, I PRAY FOR YOU.  I remember you, think of you and ask the Lord to bless you.  From my home to yours, have a very Happy Thanksgiving! xo

    Great gift ideas!! While your kids are home for break, how do you balance working out? Do you still make it happen on a day like today? Need advice with keeping balanced!! You’re the best!

    • Mix and Match Mama November 21, 2018 at 6:03 am

      I mean…I try, but I really try and give myself grace because it’s not always going to happen. I’m about to go out and run here in a minute…which isn’t the most comprehensive workout, but better than nothing, right?

      • Kristi November 21, 2018 at 8:38 am

        Yes! Love all the grace. How many miles? Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Hi Shay! Happy Thanksgiving 🙂 You and your family are so beautiful!
    I just had a quick question about your “unbaked pie shells” that some of your recipes call for… do you use a certain brand? 🙂 Thanks so much! Enjoy your holiday.

  • Leanne Gilchrist November 23, 2018 at 12:24 am

    Shay! I hope your Thanksgiving was absolutely abundant in love, laughter and sweet moments of unexpected joy. I love it that you’re so grateful. I read recently that gratitude is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it gets. And, gratitude is also like wine. Go ahead, get drunk with it! Thanks for sharing your cute sweaters and outfits! I think I’m going to browse Nordstrom and get some of those things I’ve been looking at, thanks for the heads up about the sale! You know, thanks for YOU! I’m thankful for this blog! I’m thankful that you share a tiny bit of your family with us. I think I said THANKFUL a lot in this comment! LOL! PS: the memes are hilarious!

    • Christy December 2, 2018 at 12:08 am

      I love the blue rug in your photos! Would you mind sharing the brand?

      • Mix and Match Mama December 2, 2018 at 5:13 am
