Hey Guys and Happy Sunday Funday, Thanksgiving Style!  This week has been super BUSY, as I flew home to celebrate the holidays with my family in Northfield before flying back to Oak Park for my first experience working Black Friday in a retail environment.  Things were pretty busy here on Days with Destiny, too!  Monday’s Playlist featured a nice collection of chill music from favorite artists that I am eternally thankful for (check it HERE), Tuesday’s Design Tip offered up a few ideas regarding how to redesign your living room on a budget and can be found HERE, and on Wednesday I posted 50 Things That I am Thankful For over the course of the day!  Check those posts out HERE (Part 1) and HERE (Part 2) and let me know what you are thankful for yourselves in the comments!  After Wednesday, I took a few days off blogging to spend some time with family and then to get back for work, but I have some EXCITING plans for this upcoming week.  If you want a hint, just know that this week’s posts will be revolving around a certain Birthday Girl.  Read on for more information about next week’s posts as well as for a quick recap of my travels this week under the jump!Continue reading

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a holiday all about giving thanks (which I have started doing HERE) and eating massive quantities of food.  It is a time to gather with friends and family, to share home and hearth, and to reflect upon the bountiful past year.  Thanksgiving is celebrated with a feast, and the focal point of the meal is usually a turkey, which has been lovingly washed, seasoned, and roasted (or fried) for hours before the big meal.  Turkey is truly a staple for any Thanksgiving Feast, but what happens if you don’t enjoy the big bird?  What do you eat then?  Personally, I am not a fan of turkey, so as we count down the minutes until dinner tomorrow I’ll share some of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving Dinner!  If you’re like me, prepare for a plateful of delicious carbs and sweets, which you’ll be able to share with your loved ones and wash down with a hearty swig of booze.  Tell me that doesn’t sound like a DREAM MEAL!  Read on under the jump for the 10 best things about your holiday feast if you aren’t a fan of turkey!Continue reading
