For those of you that can't get your acts together enough to schedule a neat and pretty Grateful For ... post, or for those of you that can and did and want to go the extra vapid centimeter, I'm formally inviting you to coerce someone into snapping a photo of your Thanksgiving finery ... I'll be here with my little pilgrims ready, eager and waiting with a link-up. Get excited.
It's been so fun clicking around and seeing what everyone has been wearing on Sundays over at Fine Linen and Purple that I thought (stupidly?? time will tell) that it'd be fun to do the same on Thanksgiving just for stares and gobbles (you like that? I know). I cleared it with the originators so all my copycatting and plagiarism is above board and honest as Abraham.
We'll see if I can convince Julia and Sebastian to change out of their matching black stretch pants ... or not ... and post our photo with the linkup on Thursday. Hopefully you'll e-join us for the festivities. I'll leave the link list open for a week or three because 'tis the season for giving and procrastinating.
Need some inspiritaion? Of course you don't but I'll give you some anyway:
Ain't No Mom Jeans never ever disappoints, Jill always puts together the best outfit boards, I think anything Kendi wears would absolutely work, Caroline is the most stylish mom I e-know, Elaine is a professional baby bump dresser, I love Ashley's OOTD instagrams and sometimes she posts them on her cute blog, this is my new favorite fashion blog, Kelsey the cutest Iowan, my fellow (better) OTIers Kayla and Erica, Meggie (my favorite Kansas City fashion guru), Katie (my favorite Kansas City thriftonista), I love every single one of Kimmie's outfits always, I missed Dwija's WWIS post this week but she is a stunner, Ana JUST had a baby and she looks seriously incredible, Natalie has a knack for curating awesome looking outfits, Kelly kills me with her outfit photos, and I'm hoping Cari will entertain us with her hilarity and a pair of shoes from her killer collection.
Ladies I'm shamelessly begging to join the part-ay:
Jenny (stoop to my level for a hot sec?), I really want to see Amy's, Janssen's, Francine's, Alisha's, Kelly Jo's, Natalie's, Lizzie's, Jenna's, Cynthia's, Sarah's, Amber's, JD's, Emily's bumps in action, Meg (cutest new mom, ever), Ann (please?!), Sheena and her little fashionistas, Farrah (you know you're tempted), Kate and handsome Henry, Marjorie and sweet Evie, stylish mom Beth, bride-to-be Tess, hilarious Angie, super mom Katie, modelesque Brooke, Christy (loved her Sunday outfit this week, loved), classy DConite Lori, lovely Liesl, cute mom of 4 Ashley, sweet Alaythea, super-woman-in-the-kitchen Janel, professional beauty guru Laura, newlywed Ashley, mom/chef extraordinaire Sarah, brand new mom Laura, Roxy (resurrect your blog for the cause?), natural beauty Rebekah, adorable new blogger Mary, runnermom and funnymom Jen, witty and pretty Jessie, Alexandra (I miss your blog!), Ellen (can you peer pressure your sisters, too?) hysterical Lisa (you know you wanna ...) perfectly imperfect Kate, my sister (pull mom and Sarah into the pic!) Emily, and she did it once this past Sunday ... will Colleen kindly do it again for me? I hope yes.
and I'm guessing the following would rather roast and serve themselves for dinner rather than participate but I'll plead anyway:
Jen (yes, I went there), Kathleen (are you even a little bit tempted?!), Paige (wordsmiths gotta get dressed too!), Kate (prettiest of pleases?), Hallie (you can't have all those awesomely fashionable giveaways and not entertain the idea of participating!), Mandy (I can dream), Jessica (at least on el instagram, maybe?), Kristen (did I mention ... begging?), Ria (even mildly interested?), Maureen (surprise me?), Anne (if Maureen does it ... will you?) and Adrienne (blog comeback blog comeback blog comeback!).
If I missed you it's because I've been refereeing a face scratching/hair pulling/body mauling war betwixt my little angels and I can only do 43 things at once.
I REALLY hope you join me. Really. (Tell your husband, tell your kids ...)
and I really hope you have a nice Thanksgiving eve. Really.
