snippets from thanksgiving 2011

thanksgiving this year was one of my favorites.
here’s why:
we started off the week celebrating my parents 37th wedding anniversary.
i met up for shopping with my mom and sister, where all three of us had {unbeknownst to the others} worn navy stripes. we looked like ridiculous triplets.
being silly with my sister wearing our matching hats… which was actually on purpose.  
my sisters hummingbird cake
peonies at whole foods
lunch with my best friends that lasted three hours.  i think we watched the tables turn over at least 3 times.
sneaking the video camera of my dad dancing to “i’m sexy and i know it”
limoncello.  enough said.
having 11 guests at our house.  thankful for all of jb’s montana clan that came to visit.
a fish fry
my ninny’s corn

sorry for the poor quality of my blackberry photos.  i just felt like soaking it all up sans camera this year.  
feeling so grateful!…
and now, it is beach time.

    Love your outfits, and the hat, too! Sounds like a great thanskgiving…and sometimes it really is great to let the camera go and just ENJOY without trying to capture every single moment.

    That's what I said to my boyfriend when we went away for our anniversary last weekend-that I didn't want him behind the camera the whole time. I wanted us to enjoy ourselves in the short time we had!

    accidental matching is the best 🙂 i also had 11 people at my Thanksgiving dinner and I think it's such a great number – not too many but not too small either.
    ps. that hat is fantastic! very j.lo-esque!

    love the matching shirts. I just realized I ordered 3 of the same kind of navy boat neck 3/4 sleeve shirts from 3 different stores – pretty funny! Ya think I like that style or what? Looks like you had a blast! Even your BB pics are great!
