What I Wore to Thanksgiving Dinner

22 Nov

Since the birth of my sweet, new baby (who can no longer be considered a newborn, even though my abs of butter are still acting two-days-postpartum), I’ve been avoiding all cameras like the plague.  However, when Grace at Camp Patton proposed a What I wore to Thanksgiving Dinner link-up, I decided to join in.  I’d been feeling the tiniest bit better about myself after losing a whopping 1/4 of a pound, so I thought I’d seize the moment and hop in front of the camera.

I’ve never done a fashion blog before, and I felt so awkward posing for this. You can probably tell by my face.


Hazel is clearly too cool for this.


My wonderful husband kindly agreed to take the photos while I screeched at him to “not make me look fat,” and made this face at him.




The man is a saint.  His body will smell like roses for centuries after his death, I can assure you.


With the girls in their Thursday best.


When we arrived at dinner, my jerk of a cousin asked me if I was pregnant again with number 3!  I was horrified and wanted to punch him in the face, in the spirit of Thanksgiving.


And the details:

Dress: Anthropologie

Scarf: Target

Boots: Urban Outfitters (from a million years ago when I was young enough to shop at Urban Outfitters)


And the girls:

Shoes: Minnetonka Moccasins

Dresses: Mini Boden (Please stop sending me your catalogues, I am going broke!)



Now, let’s finish with a picture of Cheeks Pawley in all her glory.




Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi! I’m a complete stranger but I clicked through from Camp Patton. Just wanted to say you and your daughters are beautiful; you look not at all pregnant, and your cousin is indeed a jerk! I hope you had a great day despite him!

    I concur about the jerky cousin. What a jerk! You look great and I totally heart your dress and your cheek-tastical baby 🙂
