I did a practice Thanksgiving dish the other night and it was VERY well-received. It came from this crock-pot lady's blog:

Sweet potatoes in the crock pot....yummmy!

To answer your questions from my blog...
Dr. Hubby is a family doctor in a small town.
I am still in a grumpy mood.
I am going to be using the schoolhouse for a scrap room and a play room.

Okay, I am a TOTAL list maker and an even better list crosser off-er. Just think about how good you will feel when you get to cross these things off your list! You go girl!

You want a competition girl? :)
I have one for you, I'll make a list of the crazy crap I have to do in two weeks, we'll see who wins! LOL
J/K, Don't stress, you've made your list, then your halfway done. I love lists, otherwise I'd forget something important, like the kids, or to pee or something.

You just reminded me of how much I have to do before Thanksgiving. We go to Maryland to spend it with my husband's family. I have been doing that since I was 18. You think it would get easier.
Good luck with your list, it looks like a good one.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, I love NH too... I've lived here for most of my life. Tried out living in the south for about six months, but I discovered that I am a true New Englander at heart. :)

ACK! Look at that long list of to-do chores before Thanksgiving! The only reason I didn't do this for my TT was because I really don't want to think about all the cleaning and prepping for the Winter. We had so much rain this year, can't we just skip the snow?? lol.

That's a great list! I've been skipping ahead to Christmas but I do need to think about Thanksgiving. It's my husband's favorite holiday.

I have to do most of what's on your list too- except #11 which we did last month, #12 which I did last Sunday and I can only drool over the idea of pretty new dishes! I will be excited to own REAL dishes again in a couple more years instead of our non-glamorous plastic wear.
