Movie Night: A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Movie Night, ThanksgivingAmy WileyComment

We cannot wait to kick off our week-long Thanksgiving break with movie night tonight! A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is one of those comforting classics that signals the Thanksgiving holiday for us.


My daughter did the chalkboard for me which is just perfect for this one. I’m excited to use my cute plates!


You can see our A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving movie night from last year here. I’m truly thankful for each of you who follow along with me!

Tuesday Treat: Festive Attire

Christmas, Tuesday TreatsAmy WileyComment

I love, love, love dressing for the holidays but it’s always a fine line between looking festive and looking like a kindergartner.  Over the years I feel l’ve learned to hit the mark. Here is a round-up of some of my favorite Christmas finds for you so you’ll be ready to hit the town this season!  This post contains affiliate links.

Merry Maxi


I ordered this beautiful dress recently and I’m so excited to wear it! I love maxi dresses and the classic plaid is perfect. I can see it at church, brunch with Santa, or a party! Shipping took a little longer for this one, so don’t delay.

Nutcracker Skirt


This Nutcracker skirt ALWAYS gets compliments!  It’s a little retro and a lot of holiday spirit.  You can pair it with a simple tee or sweater and be the cutest girl at the party.  As you can see, it’s Santa-approved! 

Gingerbread House Skirt


This skirt features darling gingerbread houses and is on sale! I think I might need to add it to my collection…

Ruffles and Plaid


You have to love the ruffles on this dress and I’m sure you’ll agree it’s party-ready!  It’s just so darling and elegantly holiday.  This would be the cutest rockin’ around the Christmas tree.

Subtle and Seasonal


Give me allll the dresses with sleeves. This one is still undeniably holiday-ready, but a little more understated. I absolutely love it!

I hope you enjoy my festive picks… anyone else in the mood for a Christmas party now?

Movie Night: Freebirds

Movie Night, ThanksgivingAmy WileyComment

Today for movie night I’m sharing this favorite from last year…


I feel like my finger is hovering on the trigger of a cannon of all things Christmas.  I'm almost ready to unleash the most wonderful time of the year at my house, but first a little Thanksgiving fun!

Freebirds is a really cute little movie that's perfect for November.  It offers plenty of laughs for both kids and adults.  Read about its content here.

I was tickled to spot these turkeys and they inspired my whole look for the table.  I LOVE the touches of pink!  I look forward to putting them out year after year.

Also, let's talk about how much mileage I'm getting out of the gingham pumpkins.  They work September through November!


The place cards are just the cutest. 


For dinner, we are having enchiladas.  Because we just are.  If you wanted to play off the theme, you could do a toned-down thanksgiving-type meal or turkey/cranberry/dressing/cream cheese sandwiches.  The main character in this movie, Reggie, is a turkey who learns how to order pizza so you could do that too!


If you go the pizza route, you might as well make your life as easy as possible and use all paper products:

If you haven't already, give this silly little movie a try!
