BEST Leftover Turkey Meal

It's the day after Thanksgiving and many of you are now wondering what to do with all that leftover turkey meat! Well I've got a better solution than cold turkey sandwiches. This is one of my all time favorite meals of mine. In fact, I've been wanting to make it for weeks! It is the perfect meal for a cold day. It's definitely a comfort food meal.

Last Minute White Chili

I wrote out the whole recipe last year, so check it out here and enjoy!
And happy shopping/relaxing!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Remember last year when I planned our thanksgiving meal, and made it for just Kevin and I?

Well this year, this year, I'm enjoying the yummy food made by Kevin's family in Dallas. Ahhh yes, I'm not cooking! THANK THE GOOD LORD!

All I'm bringing in the car with us this morning is, sugared pecans. I might just have to break into them on our drive there. Some time with family, and some time with my awesome friend, Kristina, is SO needed. I'm so thankful for this mini getaway.

I hope you enjoy your day with family! Eat good food and be mindful of all the things the Lord is doing in your life. Thank Him for the blessings and the hardships!

How about a photo dump to round out this post?

Exceptional Gifts: Beautiful Pillows& Accessories

A few months ago I was paroling etsy for some unique Christmas gifts for family and friends, also a wedding gift for a friends wedding that we would unfortunately not make it to. That's when I decided to make this blog series. I, like I am sure many of you, are doing gifts on a budget this year but still want to give my friends and family pretty, or fun or useful gifts, not something they're going to toss because it clearly said, hey I spent $10 on you this year. So every Wednesday tune in to find some unique, affordable and exceptional gifts for your family and friends. If you ever miss it, just click the button and it will bring up all the posts.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!!! Hooray! Who's ready to stuff their bellies with turket, and praise the good Name of Jesus for his mercy and grace in our lives?!

I know many of you think of Thanksgiving and immediately think of Black Friday and several of you plan on getting out there in that crazy. But before you do that, do yourself a favor and read through today's shop and maybe even flip through the last few weeks of shops by clicking on the exceptional gifts button  to see what Black Friday sales you might find through these sweet shops!

Today, I've got another wonderful gift option for probably just about anyone on your list! Midori Organics has some absolutely stunning organic pillows that are simply works of art! Midoric Organics also has some other unique gift options like the leather cabinet handles and pulls. All at great prices...and coming Friday even better prices! Plus, she is currently having a sample sale!!

Check out what Midori Organics sent me! I am wowed by these products. They are definitely some quality product that are sure to delight anyone on your list.

This pillow is beautifully hand painted and the filling of the pillow is full and heavy. Most pillows are very light so I was surprised when I found how heavy this pillow was. I love it that way though! It sits up strong without getting that slouchy look and it's firm to sit up against. The size is perfect too for a little chair or an accent on your bed.

And goodness, check out how beautifully, precious the packaging is!

The leather pulls she send me were incredibly unique. The leather is thick and clearly molded and cared for. I photographed it just as she sent it to me because I haven't been able to decide where I'll use them yet! They're so beautiful that I want to make sure I put it on a piece that is worth it. 

And just because I couldn't help it, Check out how cute the gold heart pillow goes with the Kate Spade watercolor quote from Samantha's shop! If you missed it, learn more here.

The pillows start at $19.99 and the leather pulls start at $8!

These are some of my other favorites from her shop:

White Pillow Hand Painted Gold Metallic and Gray  Polka Dots Organic Pillow

What do you think of these products she sent me?
