I haven’t had a chance to share yet but I’m excited to announce that I am going to be participating in the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger program!  For the next 16 weeks I’ll be following the Nutrisystem Women’s Select Program – and sharing my results with you.  My first 4 weeks of food have arrived, but I’m not officially starting until Monday.

Eating during the holidays can be a challenge, but Nutrisystem has created 10 great tips for surviving the holidays.  You can see them at the bottom of this post.

I’ll kick off my official posting on Monday, and then I’ll be posting an update once a week after that.  If you have any questions about the program, how to get started, the food – whatever! – please leave me a comment and I’d be happy to answer. Continue reading »

As this week was quite hectic, I missed Make at Home Monday and Tasty Tuesday this week.  To make up for it, I wanted to share a few of my favorite pins from Pinterest for Thanksgiving recipes, crafts, and decor.  If you click the images you’ll be taken to the pin so you can find the original source.

I also want to wish all of you and your families a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy all the Black Friday shopping, too, if you’re braving the crowds!

These would be cute for your dessert table or even your child’s classroom.

Lenox

(Be sure to enter on the main giveaway post if you haven’t yet.)

One of the lovely items that I have in my CouponCabin giveaway prize pack is the Lenox Autumn Owl sculpture.  It is crafted of Lenox ivory fine china and 24 karat gold, and is 4″ tall.  Sitting next to a pumpkin on a little log with some leaves, it is a nice representation of fall.  Because it is done all in ivory it would fit in nicely with whatever decorating theme you have, now and for years to come.

The Autum Owl Figurine From Lenox
Lenox products are really very beautiful.  I remember when I was in junior high and would see the ads for hand-painted Lenox vases or their Christmas ornaments and I couldn’t wait until I was “grown up enough” to start purchasing their items.  I have a Pooh Bear figurine (similar to the one below, but my Pooh Bear has a red shirt and is eating from a honeypot) and a Mickey Mouse ornament.  I have a few others, as well, like a snowman ornament and a candy dish that were passed down to me.  Not only are Lenox pieces very collectible, they make a nice start to a tradition of family heirlooms.
