The Thanksgiving Song

 

Adam Sandler and the writers for Saturday Night Live created a cult classic when they had Sandler sing about eating turkey and things that definitely did not deal with Thanksgiving. For some reason, I always seem to go back to this song when the holiday comes around. I don’t know if it’s because it makes laugh so hard I cry or just the lyrical genius that is Adam Sandler when it comes to holidays.

No matter what puts you in a good mood on this holiday, I hope y’all have a good one.

Wednesday Want: BaubleBar Pave Gem Tear Drops

baublebar pave gem tear drop earrings

 

You better believe that theses babies are on my Christmas Wish List. BaubleBar has been all the rage for a while now but I never really got into their stuff until I set my eyes on these. I love the simplistic design and of course, the color of blue.

Heads up to all those who are fans of BaubleBar, they are having a Black Friday sale on their website along with their sale on Cyber Monday as seen on The Glitter Guide.

Pre’s Trail

One of my favorite things about where I live would have to be the amount of hiking and walking trails. Just from my apartment alone I can walk to at least a couple. Plus, Spencer’s Butte and Skinner’s Butte are both short drives away from my place.

The weather this past week was just too gorgeous not to take advantage of the trails, especially Pre’s Trail. Hopefully the weather will stay this amazing for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Pumpkin bread has always been a classic Fall and Winter baked good for my family. Eat it for breakfast, for a snack, and/or for dessert. Pumpkin bread is good anytime.

Ingredients:

3 1/2 cup sifted Flour (you can buy it pre-sifted in store)

3 Cups of Sugar

2 teaspoon Baking Soda

1 1/2 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon Cinnamon (I sometimes put more in than this)

1 teaspoon Nutmeg (I sometimes put more in this this)

1 Cup Salad Oil (I use Caripelli cooking and baking olive oil)

4 Eggs

5/8 Cup Water

2 Cups Pumpkin (one can Libbys pumpkin)

Sift dry ingredients into bowl.  (You can just measure and if you dont have a sifter just stir everything around in bowl once it is measured).  Once you have done this, make a well (dig a hole in center of dry ingredients) and put remaining ingredients into bowl.  Mix with mixer, scrape bowl and pour into greased (Pam spray) pans.

Bake at 350 deg for one hour.

You will have to check breads because altitude might cook them different.  Remember small loaf pans get done pretty quick.  Use a toothpick to test.

Enjoy!

Wednesday Want: Dr. Martens Gracie Velvet Boot

Dr. Martens Gracie Velvet Boot

 

I’ve always been a big fan of Dr. Martens boots and can attest to how well they are made with having own a pair for a few years now. I love how this pair, with the velvet material and satin-like lacings, adds a more feminine touch to a shoe that is known for its masculinity. Also, the material and lacings makes the boots perfect for pairing with holiday outfits if you’re wanting to slightly dress them down (which is what I generally do with mine). Either way, I’d love to get my hands on these bad girls(?).

Happy Wednesday everybody!

Hard Out Here

Lily Allen has done it again! Her new music video “Hard Out Here”, which was released within the past week, is a satirical response to music videos like “Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” by other Pop artists. Some fans have been in a slight uproar since the first airing of her video while others have congratulated her on her commentary of what the music industry is making women out to be in this day and age. As she has put it: “If you’ve cant detect the sarcasm, then you’ve misunderstood”.
