~Let Me Pintroduce You~ A Thanksgiving Holiday Edition

Who all is hosting Thanksgiving dinner for their families this year?  *Raising hand*  
This will be my first time in YEARS hosting Thanksgiving for my parents, my sister, and my little family.  For quite a few years now, we have kept my family's Thanksgiving dinner small and intimate.  Usually my mother hosts it, but since we have finally moved back home after living out of state for years I decided this year would be my year.  I do not get to host and entertain as much as once I did when I lived in Columbus.  And I miss it...  So, I have been busily planning the menu and the decor for the past couple of weeks.  I *think* I just about have my dinner menu set.  But I am definitely still working on the table setting. ;) (Pssssttt... did you see Jodi's from Blue Skies and Apple Pies post on my blog yesterday about Setting a Gorgeous Thanksgiving Table on the Cheap?)

I have some fabulous new sponsors on my sidebar this month (and also have a few awesome bloggers who decided to stick with me for another go-round ;) ).  And almost all of them have some great holidays and fall inspired Pinterest boards! Today I would like to pintroduce you to Jodi from Blue Skies and Apple Pies (yep, the very same lovely blogger who guest posted on my blog yesterday) and Janelle from Domestically Seasoned (my awesome Friendship Bread sponsor this month).

Let's get hyped for the holidays, shall we? ;)

Interested to see what I may be serving up on my Thanksgiving table this year?  Then you need to take a peek at my Planning the Thanksgiving Spread board. ;)

Didn't you just love the ideas these lovely ladies pinned above??  Make sure you give both Jodi and Janelle a follow on Pinterest! They both have lots of boards with terrific ideas pinned. :)

And make sure to enter my Blog Makeover from Blog Sites by Suzy Giveaway while you are over here in my neck of the blogosphere. ;) My friend Suzy (the very same designer who gave my blog it's fresh new look!) is giving away a Custom Blog Design Package (a $50 value!) to one of my lucky readers.
