Friday Confessional 11.27.15

Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

I confess...

Thanksgiving dinner at our house was a success yesterday. Everything was finished at the same time. I didn't have any break downs or get too stressed, and the Mister loved every bite.

Thanksgiving Dinner Success [Friday Confessional at High-Heeled Love]

The only thing that never came together was the baked pears for dessert because we were invited to a friend's house in the evening.

I confess...

I'm looking forward to another day of volunteering at our tree lot. Thankfully, an unexpected warm front came through our area. It's much more fun to be outside handling trees in the 70s than in the 40s.

I confess...

Today might be Black Friday, but there's no shopping happening for me today. I am thankful that I don't have to go anywhere near a mall today. The Mister has to run out to get dog food for the pups, but that's as close to a store we plan on getting.

I confess...

Now that Thanksgiving over, I think it's officially time to start baking Christmas cookies. Right now, these Mickey-themed cookies from The Partiologist are my favorite. Aren't they the cutest?
