I saw a meme on Monday that said, “Just remember: it might be Monday but it’s a short week that ends with pie and shopping. We can do this.” And I’ve never felt more understood in my life. This is easily one of my favorite weeks of the year. It’s a short work week for me that involves cooking, food, and family. It’s finally ok with the world to decorate for Christmas. AND black Friday is within reach. Who could ask for more?
Today I’m sharing my Black Friday shopping tips AND my first official Holiday Gift Guide: Kitchen Edition. So, grab a cup of coffee (or your beverage of choice), a blanket, snuggle in on the couch, and keep reading!

My final tip to you: "Stuff your turkey, not yourself." I saw this on Instagram last year and thought it was cute. Practicing mindful eating this week may help you stay on track with your health goals.
