Black Velvet if you please!

I've always had a real thing for black velvet. My grandmother bought me a black velvet circle skirt with red satin lining when I was a little girl. I would twirl and spin and feel like a beautiful princess while wearing it. I was hooked. Since then I still feel special when I put on velvet. I always have a velvet dress at hand but I only wear it on special occasions. I got lucky this past fall when I found myself another dress at the Goodwill of all places. It was even new with tags! Score!! I finally wore it on New Year's Eve and I couldn't have had a better time. I'm thinking I should wear velvet every other day while sipping a little Black Velvet Whiskey. Now that would be the life!

An awesome turkey day!

I was exceptionally thankful this year to actually have all my kids and grandkids at the same place, at the same time. Wow! Wonders really do never cease! It was great seeing them all. Ashley helped me cook, plus made all the cookies. She did a great job! Not much food was left so a good time and a full belly was enjoyed by all.

If you would like to check out some recipes and information on Thanksgiving and turkeys you can click my link here from last year. I am still finding time to be hard to find here lately but last year's post is informative. This one maybe not so much, although I did make chocolate pie from the Pioneer Woman's recipe. OMG it is awesome! You can find it here. Yum, Yum, and easy too. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
