Tonight was my personal Thanksgiving dinner. We enjoyed a fabulous meal (made by me - with some assistance from my mom!) and some great dessert from friends. My closest of friends were with us so that made the night perfect. I get to spend Thanksgiving with my family and I got tonight with my friends. Those are what I'm thankful for, it's a wonderful season!

There was some Sangria to be drank..... and I won't even mention how many glasses that I had, but I will say that they were F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S.

I spent my day slaving away, cooking, cleaning, moving furniture, & even some painting. My dining room is finally cleansed of all the crap that was gathered there, and I've added some special touches to the walls. Look at the bottom half of the walls. I added a glaze and put some stripes, can you see? What do you think? -oh, it's only on the wall to the left, I was using that as my tester wall....


And I finally got a few pictures hung in the kitchen, and it's clean enough that I'm glad to show some pictures! (sorry that there is a smudge, I didn't realize it until about 1/2-way through the night)


Here are my two goofy boys.... they are so dang cute, but doesn't Riley look a little evil with the way his eyes are squinted! lol

And of course, I've stated this many times before that I'm horrible at remembering to take "before" pictures. So this is what you get of my Thanksgiving dinner! A mutilated turkey, green been casserole, mashed potatoes, & stuffing!

Bobby, Riley & Alex

Riley & Gavin, too cute!

Mr Gavin
and again....

I LOVE The stripes but wish you'd taken a better photo of them. Now I think you need a big piece of art between your window in the dining room, and some very elegant silk curtain. If you don't want to splurge on Dupioni silk there are some other synthetics that will give you a similar look for less. I'd do floor length. I can't tell if your stripes are green or not...

I'm loving the stripes - you should put them on the rest of the walls! Dinner looked yummy - especially the sangria! :)
