Thursday Thoughts

How dreamy is this picture!? This was taken at the hunting camp my Dad goes to. There are so many beautiful hidden spots here in Vermont. The weather has started to turn & I have officially seen the first dusting of snow on the ground- it has me so excited for the upcoming holidays! 

Things I did this week //
* Powered through this final week before Thanksgiving! The students & I are in need of a much-deserved break. They've been working so hard and I think a week off will be good for all of us! 

* Started putting out decor for Christmas! I'm definitely not one of those people who feels like there's a set date for decorating for Christmas- Whenever I get into the spirit I do it! 

* Made a few new recipes- I showed one of them on Instagram & you all seemed to love it- It's so fun to share what I'm making every night. If you ever have any requests just let me know!

Things I'm doing this weekend // 
* Food shopping for Thanksgiving- not that thrilling I know but I love cooking and holidays so I enjoy it! I still need to decide what I'm going to make for dessert!

* Shooting some fun new clothing pieces - I purchased a teddy bear jacket and OH MY it's so cozy! 

* Making my list for Black Friday shopping! I asked over on Instagram if you guys wanted to see a post with all of the best sales & there was unanimous yes, so I'll be sharing that as soon as possible! 

What are your weekend plans?


  1. OMG you guys get a week off for Thanksgiving?!?! That's really good! I don't think any places I've lived before have done that for public schools. Looking forward to seeing you next week!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one in the Christmas spirit! I've been listening to Christmas music a bunch lately and have found myself very eager to write Chrostmas-related posts for December rather than focusing on my calendar for this month. I haven't been black Friday shopping in so long! What's on your list of things to get this year?

  3. I am so excited for Christmas! My birthday is on Christmas so its like a two in one lol!

  4. Great photo! I have been Christmas decorating early too. Makes it feel so cozy.

  5. Beautiful photo! The week before Thanksgiving was always the hardest as a student!

  6. Ahh I need to get ingredients for Thanksgiving ready this weekend too!

  7. ahh I LOVE watching recipe videos - I will have to check out your Instagram! I just went shopping yesterday to pick up our turkey for Thanksgiving and oh my word the grocery store was nutso! I can't wait to put up our Christmas tree on Monday. <3

  8. I always wait to decorate until after Thanksgiving, but for some reason this year I just want all of it up right now haha!

  9. A whole week off for Thanksgiving?! Lucky you! I only ever got 2 days when I was in school. Enjoy the time off :)

  10. That photo is so pretty! This weekend my husband and I are going to go to a bull sale (an auction, basically) and then on Sunday we're going to the wedding venue that my family owns and helping to decorate the place for Christmas-it's a big rustic barn venue and I cannot wait to see it decked out for the holidays :)

  11. Pretty pic! This weekend I'm prepping for Thanksgiving-- we're going camping this week for Thanksgiving so on top of Thanksgiving food, I need to get everything else ready.

  12. I do marketing for an e-commerce company so I'm preparing as both a marketer and a consumer for Black Friday! haha

  13. Such a great photo! And I'm super excited to start decorating for Christmas! I always wait until the last minute, but this year I'm making an effort to get everything up BEFORE the 20th! Ha!
