Host First Thanksgiving as LT and Lady Fromage: Check!

(Unattempted as of yet, but they look quite yummy! Check them out here!)

Phew! It’s over.

We actually had a great time, and I have to mention (rub in) again how lucky LT Fromage and I are to have in laws we love, who love each other! The food was great, the company even better, and by a miracle of God (or it might have been my momma) the house was sparkling clean when everyone left!

However, the stress of so much company, more cooking than we normally do in a month, constant entertaining and 3 dead car batteries (each family experienced it at different times, his, mine and ours) spread over the week has us a little on edge now. When I say a little on edge, I mean I slept on the couch last night. (Lesson learned: When LT Fromage is burnt out, he wants to be left alone, which conflicts with my need to draw close again. Ah, the discoveries of a young marriage. See, L, we aren’t perfect all the time!)

With thanksgiving out of the way, it’s time to start prepping for the most spectacular time of the year…. Christmas!

Stay tuned for cookie recipes (It’s true, I’m going to try my hand at baking once more!), darling home décor ideas and wish lists (listen up, Santa! Or blog readers in a giving mood!) In the mean time, be sure to check out Shutterfly, where you can score 50 free personalized Holiday greeting cards, with your photo! They also offer mugs, calendars and more. LT Fromage and I are totally doing it this year. Especially since we get them for free. Free is good. It means saving more money for the mega-electric bill we’ll get in January thanks to all the lights I’ll be attaching to the house.


  1. Sounds like your Thanksgiving was a success. I can't wait for the day that the Boy and I are able to spend are holidays together - even if it causes more stress.

  2. Hooray!! sounds like it went very well =) The husband and I have talked about hosting Thanksgiving but we don't know when that will scares me a little lol

  3. Yay!! Sounds like your first was a hit! The in laws and I have a deal....She does Thanksgiving and I do Christmas. It's worked out like a charm, of course we always help each other out.

    I love my MIL!

  4. Wahoo wahoo! Happy Gobble Gobble day (belated, but still happy) to you and Lt F!!! Sounds like you had a full house - and full house means FUN in my book (yeah, not really!) But I am so glad that even in the midst of battery outages (that's so crazy) you still had a wonderful time.

    Sounds like you are liking Christmas just as much as I am!! Can't wait to enjoy the next month with you!!! ;)


Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked. But it's not like this, compulsive, need, to be liked. Like my need to be praised. - Michael Scott, "The Office"
