Ten on Tuesday [No.34]

It's Thanksgiving week-y'all!
I am so excited that the weather is becoming more crisp every single day here in Alabama & I'm also thrilled about all the food that I'll be cooking tomorrow in preparation for Thursday...anyone else excited?

If you missed the last two posts from this week, you're seriously missing out!
I shared one Thanksgiving outfit, three different ways & the photos are some of my favorites-you really can change up a simple outfit with layers and accessories!

And then on Saturday I share a post a long time in the making; the last installment of my #GoingToTheUpchurch Wedding series...our big day!
This day was oh-so-special and I'm so glad I've finally gotten it all posted. It was truly a joy to share it with all of y'all & I hope you're able to find some joy & inspiration from it.

If you're not following me on Instagram then what are you even doing with your life?
Really though, it's where I show some behind the scenes & fun things that don't always make it to the blog-I would love to be insta friends!

If you're hosting this Thanksgiving or Christmas here are a couple of tips to make everything run smoothly; number one is right-fresh flowers around the house cover a multitude of sins.

 Last Tuesday night Chris & I went to see some of my "kids" that I taught last year at one of their basketball games.
It was so fun to see them play & just to see them in general! There were lots of hugs & catching up on how they're all doing-I miss them so much!

This week Audrey shared a recipe for a Cranberry Ginger Fizz Cocktail & y'all-if you're looking for the perfect drink to serve at your Thanksgiving gathering or Christmas party, this is the one!

On Sunday afternoon, Chris & I had to go to The Barn (my family's wedding venue) and help to finish decorating for Christmas & decorating the tree.
They have two horses that are in the pasture by the venue & I had to stop and snap a picture (which you might've seen on my Insta story!) because they were so pretty.
 We finished off our day at our farm, feeding the cows & checking on the baby calves.
These trees are a reoccurring subject that I feature everywhere, but they're just beautiful in all seasons.

Have you seen Kammy's DIY on recovering her old chair seats with feed sacks?!
The aqua blue chair is just what I have in mind for the head chair at my future farmhouse table. 😍

These heels are fantastic for the holiday season and are just over $20 right now!

If you're like me, you'd rather gift an experience than an actual gift to some people; this is a round-up of 16 experience gifts that people would love!
I personally have taken a cooking class with my mom & sister's and that was so fun; I also think that massages are always a winner.

Until Christmas, I'm going to start sharing something each week that's on my Christmas wish list...this week's is this gift set from Sephora, I would absolutely love to test these out on my self-care/pamper nights.

Let me know below one thing that's on your Christmas wish list!

Until next time. . .


  1. I love that poncho, it is just the cutest! And I LOVE experience gifts as well, what a good list!

  2. That poncho is so pretty and perfect for Thanksgiving. I may need to grab me one! I love the sack feed chairs from Kammy's blog, too. Now i'm dreaming of doing them in my kitchen! I am envious that your family has a farm and wedding venue. That must be so much fun. It sure does look like a beautiful setting for pictures!

  3. I'm definitely leaning towards some experience gifts this year, especially for my husband! We have too much stuff already!

  4. It's so pretty at the farm. I'd love to see a sunrise there.

  7. Your barn photos are beautiful! I loved seeing your wedding photos this week too!

  8. So many great picks! I love that cape you're wearing in the first picture!

  9. I love that you're sharing your wedding day! Doesn't matter if the post is a bit late, what matters is the story!
