Martha Stewart I'm Not

It's Thanksgiving and I'm waiting on my nieces and my sister and my mama and brother in law and mother in law and other brother in law, you get the picture.....they are all coming over and spending a few nights. I am frantically trying to get ready for all of them. Martha Stewart stinks. She gives me a complex. I mean, I want to get the guest rooms ready, and have all that stuff that you get ready for guest. But I'm afraid that they are all going to be fending for themselves.

Yesterday Hubby and I went to the grocery store to get our STUFF for the BIG meal and we only spent $150.00. I am so impressed. I was really worried that it was going to be much more than that. We had an entire grocery buggy full of stuff. But the store we went to had some super deals and we got our turkey $15.00 dollars off. And that's only one of the deals we got.

Oh and my Mama just called and ask, "did you get the stuff for the party favors tomorrow?" "No Mama, I forgot" Martha Stewart I'm not.

But as my blog friend Michelle told me "stop and take a deep breath and jump right in there and you'll be fine" So that's my plan, lots of deep breaths:-)

My favorite thing is going to be watching the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade in the morning. It's a tradition. And who knows maybe one day I will be organized enough to have a home run like a well to do hotel! Lol! But until then, hopefully no one will be too traumatized by my lack of "Martha" Skills.

Happy Thanksgiving Ya'll

I am stressing, too. And I'm not Martha, either! My wine will get me through it, lol!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, isn't it a shame how that lady makes us all feel??? I am enjoying my Thanksgiving morning laying in bed reading blogs. We're going to my sisters and for some reason all she wants me to bring is a gallon of apple cider. YEAH for me!!! Last year we hosted and one year we had most of our family staying here so I know the stress you're under!!! Take a deep breath and give them some leftover turkey as their party favors!! I'm sure you'll do beautifully!!! said...

Hope you had a great day!
