HAPPY THANKSGIVING! From Our Family To Yours!


From Our Family To Yours!


Yay! It’s here.. it’s FINALLY HERE! Thanksgiving.. aka Buff’s Super Bowl. I’m not kidding, my husband takes this day more serious than all the others (including our own anniversary, I think).  He starts prepping with a menu, then experimenting with desserts, bringing the bird and it all leads to an amazing finale, of course, Thanksgiving day.
It’s truly a feast and something to be savored and enjoyed.

For that reason, we’re not going to be posting a lot here today; I hope that you, like the members of #TeamGEM are enjoying time with friends, family and food.

Enjoy your turkey, trimmings and extra slice of pumpkin pie and we’ll see you very soon!

In the meantime, here are a couple of posts from our fabulous stable of contributors that may have gotten by you.

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
