Happy Friday folks! Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of JFK. I, of course, wasn’t born yet, but was in college on 9/11. It really was a turning point in my life. All the death, sadness, and uncertainty is very reminiscent of the death of JFK. September 11 is always a rough day for me. I didn’t know anyone personally, but my heart ached for all those people affected on that tragic day. I imagine November 22 is a lot like that for baby boomers. On this day, we remember President John F. Kennedy, a life cut short but a life well lived.
Moving on. It’s almost time for my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving! A nice relaxing weekend, revolved around food. My fat ass is in! For Friday Favorites this week I am gonna share a few things I found around the intertubes. Specifically for those in need of something to bring to a Thanksgiving dinner. These days so many people have several Thanksgivings to attend and aren’t always making a dinner. You may need to bring the host a gift or contribute to a potluck. So I have a quick little roundup of some cute Thanksgiving finds. Enjoy!!
I love these simple, easy lantern decorations. Gourds, pumpkins, and other fall finds are put into a lantern for a quick and cute table or outdoor decoration. This would make a great hostess gift. I saw lanterns like these at Target for around 25 bucks. You can change it up for each season or just put in a candle. I loves me some candles
This turkey shaped cheese tray from “A Beautiful Mess” is totally something I wouldn’t make. (Too many cheese trays made in my teen years) But it is adorable!! The perfect addition to a Thanksgiving feast.

These cloverleaf rolls are to die for! My husband makes them for every holiday dinner we make at home. So yummy. If you love to bake, this is a great dish to bring to Thanksgiving dinner. You can’t beat homemade bread.

This nutella dip isn’t really Thanksgiving’y but it is delicious. And who doesn’t love Nutella?! It’s a great last minute, quick fix recipe that everyone will want to dig into.

Everyone thinks of cookies as a Christmas tradition, but why not add cookies to your Thanksgiving spread to have something to nosh on. This soft glazed pumpkin sugar cookies fit the bill. I may have to make these for our Thanksgiving next week.
