What I Wear- Thanksgiving

"Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!"
                                                                                                     Psalm 107:1
Hey everyone, Happy Thanksgiving! I've resolved that today, I will not be gluttonous! So to throw off the shackles-cool word huh?-of glutton I've worn this outfit. Or something like that! *Wink* Its gotten too cold to go outside and take pictures-though I hope to go freeze myself maybe tomorrow for a picture. But cozy was more apealing than freezing! Its supposed to be warming up, last night was -18 last I looked. Pretty cold! Anyway, the smell of stuffing is making me HUNGRY! Waiting for company to show up so we can eat! Lol!
So I've noticed with the new stats that I have a lot of readers outside the US! So I thought I'd share what Thanksgiving looks like:
Our traditions for Thanksgiving aren't very exciting but most traditions aren't!
We have turkey (of course!)stuffing, homemade rolls, mashed potatoes and gravy. We usually invite a few families over, but very rarely ever have family from out of state. My dad watches 'his' team (the Cowboys) on TV. I know! Please! Don't mock me! The sins of the Father...*sigh*
Thanksgiving is also a time to well...give thanks! Here is Lincoln's Thanksgiving Proclamation which pretty much sums up why we have Thanksgiving.
 "Washington, D.C. October 3, 1863By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.
The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln

QUESTION: What are you wearing today? Leave a link!

Whats family's Thanksgiving traditions?


  1. Cute outfit!! I really love that skirt.. plaid is always a good choice for the holidays. :) The belt I love also! Such a cute style. Happy Thanksgiving. :)

  2. What a beautiful outfit, Natasha!

  3. I really like your skirt!
    As a reader from Canada, I must say it feels odd to speak about thanksgiving this time of year- we always have ours in October. So I'm in a much more Christmasy mood. But giving thanks and eating great food is always in season, eh? ;) Sorry for the Canadianism. I suppose apologizing often is another. ;) haha enjoy your stuffing! (My favorite!)

  4. I love that skirt too! You look so cute... pretty too, of course! :)

    I actually did pretty well this year with not overeating during Thanksgiving dinner. I would have probably if my stomach hadn't filled up so fast! (My eating habits/abilities are just a little weird!)

    God bless!
