Weekend Recap and Thanksgiving Plans

Despite the dreariness and rain this weekend, I had a wonderful couple of days. My stepson went to spend Thanksgiving vacation with his mother, so my husband and I got to spend the entire weekend together. Since J moved in with us a year before we got married, my husband and I missed the "newlywed" stage. I love having my stepson live with us, but it's nice to have time alone, too.

I still managed to get a bunch of projects started. I didn't get to complete any of them, though, so I won't be showing them today. I began reupholstering a chair, made a wall decoration out of fabric and nailheads, and came up with the Thanksgiving tablescape.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I also came up with this:

Yep, that's a minute-by-minute schedule for Thanksgiving preparations. (Part of it, anyway. The whole thing is over a page long.) My husband thinks I'm nuts for being so organized, but I like being that way. I'm a list-maker. I like having everything planned out.

Okay, maybe it's a little OCD. But no one every complains when Thanksgiving dinner is ready right on time.


  1. We don't have Thanksgiving but I will take note of this for the Christmas dinner! Have a lovely week:)

  3. wow sounds very organized! I only wish I could be that organized!

  4. I make most of the side dishes and desserts on Wednesay night and thought I'm not as organized as you, I have been visualizing the order in which I'll make everything. It feels a little bit like psyching yourself up for a marathon!

  5. I love your list & how completely organised you are! I'm the same and love making lists. I always feel like I have accomplished so much after I can cross every little detail off! Enjoy your Thanksgiving celebration! xx

  6. You are so organized! I love making lists too, mostly grocery lists and 'what to bring while traveling' lists! :)

    Wishing you and your family a warm and joyous Thanksgiving!
