I am so in love with this skirt! I have been dreaming of a mustard yellow/chartreuse skirt for years, but I've never found one, or the fabric to make one. That is until my mom and I went thrifting! this was actually a dress but the top was ugly, so we cut in half, added an elastic, and presto! A skirt! For only $7! This was my outfit for Sunday Thanksgiving dinner. Then, for the second dinner (have to have a dinner with both sides of the family!) I decided to wear the acorn dress, since I thought the acorns were perfectly fitting for a fall feast.
This year was the first time i've gone back (to Edmonton) for Thanksgiving since I moved, three years ago. I usually decline the offer to return home for a holiday based around turkey and colonization, but this year I ended up with a 5 day weekend for Thanksgiving so I looked at it more as a simple visit home, with two family dinners to attend.
I made my presence known by preparing a Tofurkey, and informing the table that 45 million turkeys that get slaughtered every year for Thanksgiving alone.
I'm basically this little girl.
Good news is I got three of my family members to try some Tofurkey! (Albeit, only a bite each...) Much better than the usual number, zero!
So in the 'spirit' of thanksgiving, I will say I'm thankful for my wonderful family, and for getting to spend time with them. It was a nice little vacation.
