Y'all, the holidays are finally here and I could not be more excited!!! Thankskgiving is one of my favorite holidays, tied only with Christmas! There is nothing I love more than eating and shopping, both of which are synonymous with Thanksgiving!! Today's Sunday Seven features some of my favorite recent purchases as well as some wonderful upcoming holiday events! I hope you enjoy!
Ok, so I'm starting with my favorite recent purchase and new obsession, my Nikon D5600 DSLR camera!! This was a totally unexpected purchase as I was completely happy with my older Nikon D3100, but unfortunately the shutter had an issue and it was going to cost half of the purchase price of a new one to get it fixed, so Matt told me to just buy a new one!! I'm so happy that I did, because y'all, it's FABULOUS!! If you are a hobbyist photographer, or someone venturing into the world of professional as I am beginning to do, I highly recommend this camera!! It's a great buy for a relatively inexpensive cost compared to some others!!
Ok Dallas friends, if you're looking for something to do today, Snider Plaza is having their annual Tree Lighting today from 1-6 with local vendors serving up treats and a complimentary beer and wine garden with proof of ID and donation to North Texas Food Bank! The day's festivities culminate with the tree lighting in the center of the plaza around 6pm!!
Looking for something new to take to Thanksgiving this year? I seriously recommend this insanely good cinnamon roll bread pudding!! I made it for the first time three years ago at my Friendsgiving dinner party and it was a major hit!! I mean how can you go wrong when you combine cinnamon rolls and bread pudding? I made it in individual ramekins, but it could also be made in a bigger dish if serving for a crowd!! Try it, and you'll definitely be a hit this year!
My good friend and uber talented artist, Taelor Fisher, just launched her first line of wrapping paper through Spoonflower in time for the holiday season!! She paints beautiful floral inspired abstracts that are full of life and color! She's taken her beautiful paintings and turned them into gorgeous wrapping paper that is perfect anytime of the year!! You must check them out on her website!!
Not sure which wine to take to Thanksgiving? Wine Folly has you covered with their guide to the 7 Great Choices for Thanksgiving wine!!
DFW friends, Disney on Ice is going to be in Allen the week of Thanksgiving with their Reach for the Stars performance including characters from Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel, and The Little Mermaid!! Tickets are still available with their afternoon shows on Friday and Saturday at only $33!! Check them out here.
Ok, seriously, its Thanksgiving, so if you're not already planning on wearing leggings to Thanksgiving, you might as well pack them in your bag or have them waiting when you get home, because after all of that food, you'll want some clothes that give!! These leggings from Gap Body are my all time favorite! They are SO soft and comfortable!! Perfect for watching Hallmark movies and recovering from a carb coma!!
That's my SUNDAY SEVEN for this week!! I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!!
