Welcome to the weekend, my friends! It’s hard to believe that we’re already in the 7th week of Christmas giveaways. The holidays are rapidly approaching and I am so ready for it!
In the past, my family has always decorated for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving, but this year? 2020 feels like a really good year to decorate a little earlier. Anyone else ready for some holiday cheer?
Today, for the seventh week of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Giveaways, I’m giving away Thanksgiving Dinner! While I can’t deliver the dinner itself, the winner will receive a $200 VISA gift card to buy Thanksgiving groceries. (Feel free to enter for yourself or for a friend!)
To be entered, leave a comment on THIS BLOG POST telling me your favorite Thanksgiving dish. The winner will be selected on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at 11:59pm EST.
Here’s the lucky winner’s comment:
AND there’s a BONUS GIVEAWAY on Instagram again this week! If you are in the Columbus area (specifically within driving distance of Granville, OH) leave a comment on THIS IG POST and enter to win a $100 gift card to Cedar & Thread! (Take advantage of the holiday season and get over to the shop ASAP. The Christmas displays are simply gorgeous.)
ON THE BLOG this week: Cranberry Christmas Cake is one of those recipes that is an instant favorite every single time someone new tastes it. Tart cranberries, sweet buttery cake, and a fantastic texture all combined to basically beg me to eat another piece.
Crispy pork, tender vegetables, and potatoes topped with a perfectly soft egg? Sign me up for this Pulled Pork Breakfast Skillet any day of the week.
5 Minute 5 Ingredient Chocolate Fudge is a creamy chocolate fudge recipe. It is perfect for gifting, snacking, and serving for any occasion.
What I’m CRAVING: This Creamy Mushroom, Chicken, and Wild Rice Soup looks and sounds absolutely fantastic. And with that perfectly toasted slice of bread too? Just hand me a spoon.
My FAVORITE THING this week is my new robe. Nothing fancy, super casual, and the ultimate in soft comfort. I’ve tried so many robes over the years and they always wind up making me hot. (not the good kind of hot either – ha) This robe is awesomely lightweight with a great hem length and sleeve length. Oh! And bonus points for a wide tie that is stitched down on the back of the robe, so it always lays flat and is flattering.
What I’m WATCHING: I watched Guarding Tess for the first time this week. I know it’s 25+ years old, but it popped up in my recommendations and I decided to give it a watch. Shirley MacLaine was great and the movie was a fun choice. I really enjoyed it!
What I’m READING: A New Song by Jan Karon. This is the fifth novel in the Mitford series and I continue to love these books. I’m forcing myself to take a brief break from the Mitford series now, so that I don’t finish them too quickly! This series has been so very good for my heart this year.

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
