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.

My Black Friday 2014 Wish List

It's also a great day to get a few tops and pj's for my girls, and today you can find amazing deals on holiday dresses for girls. *This post contains affiliate content.
