This Week's Notes (+ A Thanksgiving Playlist) 11.25.15Wednesday, November 25, 2015
Happy Day-Before-We-Eat-All-the-Food Day! I've been in denial that Thanksgiving was so close until this past weekend. Suddenly, it started feeling like the holidays! The weather turned cooler and I actually thought (keyword: thought) about turning Christmas music on. I resisted. :) My sister is in town today and we are baking all the things in preparation for tomorrow. I'm trying my hand at The Pioneer Woman's chocolate pie recipe and can't wait to see how it turns out!
Here's a quick round-up of some links I've enjoyed this week. Be sure to scroll all the way down for the playlist that we're listening to while we spend some quality time with this kitchen. The "Fat Bottom Girls" song seemed appropriate with all of the eating that I'll be doing tomorrow....and the next day, and the next. ;)

Speaking of...I listened to an interview with Adele about her new album and now I'm really curious about it. I might need to add a few of her songs to our playlist. Mostly, though, I just really enjoyed listening to her talk about her son in her awesome accent.
