The Rose's First Thanksgiving

our first thanksgiving went really well! we ate four hours later than we had originally planned but whatever. i cooked some family recipes including spinach quiche, green bean casserole, baked beans & pecan pie. 
i was a cooking machine!
thanksgiving definitely solidified my hatred for cooking but i will happily continue if it means keeping my husband alive and happy.
Huck was in charge of the chicken. yes, you read right. i said "chicken". since we both aren't fans of turkey, we decided to be rebels and make a chicken instead. 
i also had fun decorating our table. as i look through these pictures i think about all the things i should have added or changed. grrr, isn't that so frustrating? thinking of better ideas after the fact. happens to me all the time. anywhoo, what you'll find on our table is mostly thrifted. the table itself was $3 at a garage sale & then i found my favorite chairs on amazon. the plates were given to me by my loverly blonde friend, Britt. the table runner is a strip of painters paper roll {perfect for writing what you are thankful for on}. the napkins are thrifted as well as the candle holders. oh! and those awesome felt leaf coasters are from bed, bath & beyond. 
we got to chat with a lot of our family back home via facetime and spend our first holiday together. there are so many things i am thankful for. one huge thing was that Huck was able to be home for it. i hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving.

i am currently waiting for Christmas cards to arrive in the mail. please send us yours! it will make my holiday season. don't forget to check out Minted if you are needing some card inspiration.

xoxo, kerri
