Yum! We just had turkey and all the fixings with friends last weekend. So delicious! I like you're new blog header and the chevron tabs on the side. I don't know where you find all the cool stuff for your blog. I still remember the frames you had when I first started reading your blog. I loved those! You'll have to share your secrets. Maybe I'd actually get back into blogging again. ;)
