Saturday Somethings

May 14, 2016

I finally joined Snapchat a few weeks ago (#latebloomer) and I loved this adorable Snap Story between Vikings Fan & Library Girl from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Tina the Turkey - Possible on of the best homemade Thanksgiving decorations ever!

Food It’s not enough that we feast on turkey and pie only once a year. Two weeks ago I started craving the rich creaminess of pumpkin pie in a buttery crust and cozy mashed potatoes smothered in gravy. With Thanksgiving still two and a half weeks away, there was only one way for me to feast without family: Friends-giving! A factor of my generation, Friends-giving is a gathering of your best friends who come together to create a Thanksgiving meal,…
