Am I the only one that feels like she could get lost in Blogland never to return again? Seriously, there are way too many amazing and creative people out there. It's inspiring.... and more than a little humbling. It seems like everytime I have an idea, someone out there has already done it. And they've done it better than me. It's great for the mind, not so much for the ego.
Anyway..... I'm really here to write about Thanksgiving. I have to admit that it really isn't my favorite holiday. I love pumpkin pie as much as the next girl, but I really prefer Christmas, Halloween, and the 4th of July. Danny and I are lucky enough to have our families in the same town, so we usually get to spend time with both families for the holidays. But as we're getting older and our families are growing, we've had to start switching back and forth for the main events on each day. This year is my family's turn for Thanksgiving, so I'm trying to get really excited about it and find more ways to enjoy the day.
Now for the tie in.... I found the greatest Thanksgiving ideas in Blogland and online. I'm so excited to try some of them out. I've posted some of my favorites below. Also, I've found the cutest turkey and fall cupcakes. I'll be posting one every day on my Cupcake Blog.
Now, maybe I should go get some practice in and bake a pumpkin pie. :)

I'm sure there will probably be more to come, but for now, I must start trying to find the trail of breadcrumbs back home from Blogland.
