Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving, friends!

This is our first Thanksgiving as a married couple, and we are actually hosting Thanksgiving this year as well. Our families are spread across the US, in Colorado, Alabama, Ohio, New Mexico, and Chicago and this year, we are staying in Idaho for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mom and step dad live here, along with my brother, his wife and my niece and nephew, so they will be coming over, as well as a few friends of ours from church who do not have family here. The more the merrier, I always say!

Last night we began to set the table and prep for Thanksgiving. For my bridal shower I got a long fold up table that has already proved to come in handy. Our house isn't huge, so the two tables together pretty much take up the entire dining/living room, but we have so much food and plenty of wine, I don't think anyone will mind.


Also, I wanted to tell you all about the CaraBox exchange I signed up for! If you haven't heard of it, go over to Wifessionals blog and read about it there! Its a way to meet bloggers and send love and gifts and encouragement. Last time around I got two of the most incredible partners, so when they announced we would be paired up with bloggers in our state, I couldn't wait to participate! I only know one other Idaho blogger, who also happens to be one of my BESTIES, Karissa so I am crossing my fingers that some more Idaho bloggers sign up!

If you know any Idaho bloggers, tell them to sign up. Or just tell them to be my friend.

All joking aside, I hope you have a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving! You are loved!

  6. I hope you enjoy hosting Thanksgiving this year! I love those little glitter pumpkins! If you're ever out in CO visiting family, you better come say hello! (They aren't on your hubby's side by chance, are they? Because I know some Rasmussens...)

    I've seen a few Idaho Cara Boxers, but so far on IG, I've only seen one other girl from Colorado! Kaitlyn is here too and I know two other Coloradans that usually participate, but they haven't posted the picture yet.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
