Q&A: Thanksgiving 911

Every Thanksgiving hostess has his or her moments of anxiety. Hell, I've been making holiday dinners and hosting dinner parties for a decade, and I still get a little nervous when it come to roasting the perfect turkey.

The Weekend IT List: My Bags Are Packed, I'm Ready to Go


I hope you all had a lovely week. I've still been packing and sorting and cleaning for my vacation and my big move.

I've called it my home for over 5 years off and on, and it truly is the best place I've ever lived. That's saying a lot considering I've moved nearly ten times in the last ten years.

You may have noticed I haven't been posting quite as much on the blog, but I have posts scheduled for the rest of the month, and I definitely plan to check in at least a few times a week while traveling. I'm excited to post some travel tips for you. Yesterday I managed to pack everything I need for 3 weeks, including full outfits for several special occasions, in my new carry-on and my satchel. I'm very much looking forward to catching up with old friends, eating my mom's Hungarian cooking, and watching my best friend walk down the aisle. Then it's on to Texas. Quite fitting to end up there as it's where I was born. Though it's anyone's guess it will be permanent. Before I go I'll leave you with some helpful links for summer travel. Enjoy your weekend!
