Right around this time every year I start to sulk, wondering why I’m still single and asking myself if it’s really necessary for the folks over at Kay Jewelers to inundate us with sappy commercials every two and a half minutes. I usually cope by drowning my dark thoughts in turkey and extra large glasses of cabernet … but not this year.
This year, as Thanksgiving approaches, I’ve decided to stop dwelling on my singledom, and instead, come up with a little wish list for the man who (I hope) will one day pull up a seat beside me at my family’s Thanksgiving feast. That man, whoever he may be, is gonna have a lot of tests to pass. I hope he’s up for the challenge: Keep reading »
Whether you’re hosting Thanksgiving, looking for a unique gift to bring your Thanksgiving host, or just want to add a little autumn ambiance to your apartment, these DIY Thanksgiving decorations will do the trick. Grab your glitter, light a fall candle, and get crafting!
My attitude about pretty much everything on a standard Thanksgiving menu is “oh, that’s nice,” but when it comes to stuffing and gravy, my attitude is more along the lines of, “GIVE IT ALL TO ME.” So obviously, I’m really into the idea of these stuffing waffles drizzled with gravy “syrup.” Finally, a perfectly engineered day-after-Thanksgiving breakfast food (way better than the mashed potato and cranberry sauce omelette my dad is so fond of). Are you with me in my desire to chow down on a stack of these? Or does the idea of a savory, gravy-drenched waffle make your stomach turn? [Neatorama]

You’ve barely worked your way through your stash of Halloween candy, and already the world is asking you to reserve your free-range turkey at the grocery story and buy your plane ticket for Christmas before the rates triple. If you and your significant other have been avoiding the Where We’ll Spend The Holidays convo, you can avoid it no longer. You may be at a stalemate over where you’re going to go depending on whose families give bigger guilt trips and how much you’re gonna have to cough up to get there and of course, tons of other considerations. We’ll leave that to you to sort out. (Good luck!) As you’re in the final throes of the holiday decision making frenzy, may we recommend (if your parents won’t disown you) forgoing the Where We’ll Spend The Holidays war and offering to spend it with your partner’s family. Not because you don’t love your family. Just because, well, what we’ve started to realize is that a holiday at your SO’s house is a holiday where you’re kind of off the hook — even if his family is a bit high maintenance. There is a beauty to not being expected to make the plans, do the grocery shopping or entertain asshole relatives. There are epiphanies to be had from watching your SO interact with their family members. Here are a few unexpected benefits to heading over the river and through the woods to a holiday celebration with your partner’s family… Keep reading »
