This year I decided to host our family Thanksgiving at our house. We will be hosting my parents, my in-laws and my Brother-in-law and his family. There will be 13 of us. I’ve hosted holiday dinners before, but Thanksgiving is quite the ordeal because, in addition to wanting to have the place decorated for Thanksgiving and getting ready to decorate for Christmas, we also need to prepare tons of food! I was a bit overwhelmed until my bloggy friend Tara from Feels Like Home gave me a copy of her new eBook, Your Best Thanksgiving Ever!

In her book, Tara not only gives great tips, a details to do list with dates, and amazing recipes, she also shared her holiday disasters, hoping we can learn from her mistakes. My personal favorite,

“I woke up on Thanksgiving morning knowing that there was a rodent in my living room, and that one of our guests might see it.”

Wait, did she say there was a rodent in her living room?! Living in a somewhat rural area myself, we’ve had our fair share of mice and even a muskrat, but a mole?! OMG, I’d die! Let alone on Thanksgiving.

I was a bit overwhelmed when I agreed to host Thanksgiving, but after reading this ebook, I feel totally prepared! With detailed recipes, grocery lists and to-do lists, I’m set!

If you are hosting your family Thanksgiving, this is a must read. There are only two more weekend until T-day. Turkey day, ThanksPilgrims day. If you order through our link and enter the promo code: COLORADO5 you will receive $5 off! Order your copy of Your Best Thanksgiving Ever! today!
