Happy belated Thanksgiving! I’ve had a really busy weekend of sitting in my PJs and shopping online, getting my nails done and getting my hair done. Priorities, people.
But I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family and some of my mom’s friends, so I just wanted to share a few pictures.
My contribution to the meal was Brussels sprouts. My mom told her friends that I was really into health and fitness…so I made them Brussels sprouts with butter, maple syrup and bacon.
My mom made deviled eggs.
Antipasto. (My dad did not crack his yearly “I’m pro pasta” joke, though.)
And spaghetti and meatballs, because a holiday without them is like a day without sunshine.
And here’s the lovely turkey.
I know not everyone can get home (or even wants to get home) for Thanksgiving, so I’m particularly thankful to live near my parents and to want to see them on Thanksgiving. A good friend lost her father just before Thanksgiving, so you better believe I hugged my parents a little closer this year and implored them to take good care of themselves so that they would be around for many more Thanksgivings. (And then I served them those Brussels. Oops.)
On a lighter note, here are some of my favorite sales I’ve been perusing this weekend:
Lilly Pulitzer: I know it surprises nobody I’ve been scouring this site even more than usual. They’re not doing any sales, but they are doing free gifts with purchase, such as limited edition totes or bangles.
J. Crew: 30% off with the code HOLIDAY. I’ve always loved J. Crew but usually avoid the accessories in the middle so that I don’t spend $100 without thinking about it picking up little tchotchkes, but they have a million little accessories now that would make for really good small gifts.
J. Crew Factory: This is LEGIT. 50% off everything with the code HOLIDAY50.
Kate Spade: This is always my favorite Black Friday sale. A few years ago, I got a really nice laptop bag that usually retails for $300+ for $150.
Sephora: No percentage off sitewide, but lots of deals on the site.
C. Wonder: 30% off with code GIFTS30.
Madewell: 25% off with code FEAST25
Target: A whole bunch of buy-one-get-one-50% off stuff on men’s and women’s clothes
New Balance: 15% off sitewide
Oiselle: 20% off orders of $150 or more + free shipping on everything
Road Runner Sports: 20% off with code FUN2013
