Thanksgiving 2010

This Thanksgiving, I went away somewhere really far to go apple picking! With my boyfriend and his friends, it was a lot of fun but quite exhausting, all the green and yellow delicious seems to have been all plucked so we just got a bunch of red ones (which are my favourites anyway), quite pricey though -$16 for a bag, but the fun is worth it :) Reminds me of the good old days in elementary school going to the farm for a field trip!
dress: bluenotes
boots: Aldo
gloves: Escada
scarf: self knit
jacket: from mom

for thanksgiving dinner, I decided to roll up my sleeves and cook a mighty feast for my mom and brother. Dad's in LA -.-
made: autumn soup (pumpkin, carrots, celery, potato and onion)
baked potato with sour cream
french salad with pecans
Turkey (not one whole! just slices)
cranberry sauce (from dried ones -i improvised!)& gravy
Stuffing {kinda experimental... but turned out nice }
& last but not least
met up with some friends for a birthday at Baton Rouge. Oh I love public holidays :)

Oh, did I mention I finally got accepted by George Brown!? I'm so excited! I actually had to go all the way to the office to find out -apparently the computers were down for improvements. I'll most likely be living in the city finally!

p.s. don't forget about my giveaway!!
