    Umm so can we talk about how it’s less than 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving? How is this year almost over? Please, just enlighten me how this is possible?! Ok, well, you don’t really have to but it’s still crazy to me.

    I’m pretty sure you’re planning your big feast so for starters, I have some awesome side dishes & desserts in the Thanksgiving section of my site if you care to take a gander. Second, do you Pinterest? Of course you do and even if you don’t you can still hop on over and take a look at all the Thanksgiving ideas I have pinned from my fellow blog friends and myself! Those two areas should help you with your feast should you need some fresh and new ideas for your table!


    Does that girl on the cover of Hopeless look like Kelly Clarkson or is it just me? Lol

    Hopeless was SUCH a good book. Another great one I couldn’t put down. Without giving too much away, it’s about a girl named Sky who gets involved with a guy named Dean Holder. Never feeling anything for any guys due to her past, something about Holder captivates her and invoke feelings in her that has never happened before. Sky wants to keep Holder at a distance but Holder is determined to find out everything about Sky. Sky finds out that Holder isn’t all that he says he is and once the secrets are revealed, Sky’s entire world that she thought she knew will be turned upside down and will literally change her life forever.

    I think I could’ve done without reading Losing Hope. It was from Holder’s perspective and a lot of the book was like a copy/paste from Hopeless. Granted, the book was mainly between Sky and Holder and their conversations, but I just felt that this was a book that the author put out to reap in some more money. Sure, it’s nice to hear things from Holder’s perspective but I felt like everything was so repeated.

    Definitely read Hopeless if you want that heart-racing feeling and flipping through the book to see what happens next. If you like shock factor, this is a good book, too. I would pass on Losing Hope unless you really want to get into Holder’s mind ;)


    How cute are these milk and cookies flannel PJ’s? I want them so badly! Not sure I want to spend $58 on PJ’s though. Hopefully they go on sale soon or maybe Santa will be kind enough to bring me some :)

    I think I almost peed my pants reading this on Buzzfeed. Hilarious!!


    Have you seen Taylor Swift’s new video for Blank Space? Hahaha love this girl and how she sticks it to all the rumors and exes.

    Ok, so not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this on here but if you make a recipe of mine and post it on Instagram, tag #tablefortwoblogrecipes and @tablefortwoblog so I can see! :)
