Tuesday Treasure Trove

This week’s round-up of readworthy things is all about Turkey Day.

Some of my favorite T-day recipes, in case you’re still looking for inspiration:

Various thoughts, observations, and facts:

Black Friday/Cyber Monday

  • Ebates – Earn cash back from all that online shopping you know you’re going to do.
  • Ideeli and HauteLook – super deals all the time, but I’m guessing they’ll ramp it up even more this weekend.
  • And stay tuned tomorrow for the special Thanksgiving code for my shop!


Things of Note


The next week-ish of blog posts are going to be scheduled ahead of time, as tomorrow I am off to northern hinterlands (aka. Ohio and Michigan) for Thanksgiving with my family. Early and definitely still dark tomorrow morning, Ian, Sienna and I are packing into the car and roadtripping it up. We have audio books. We have snacks. We have car-travel-trained steel bladders. I’ll get to see my mom, and my aunt, and various uncles and cousins and mini cousins (not the sisters, sadly). And then I get to see a bunch of people I haven’t seen in 10 years at the aforementioned reunion. It’s going to be weird, but I admit to an intense curiosity. I am, in many ways, a completely different person than I was in high school. And in other ways I’m the same. But at the very least I have a bit more life and perspective and self-awareness under my belt, so it’ll be interesting to view this crowd through such an altered lens. And then it’ll be a drive back down to Texas on Monday.

What are your turkey day plans? Any advice for attending a high school reunion? (including what to wear?!)
