Thanksgiving Pumpkin Desserts

Pumpkin Bars

My mom taught me how to make this recipe years ago and every year they are ALWAYS a crowd pleaser!  Even people who say they don't like pumpkin always love these!  They are super light and moist and the cream cheese frosting is the perfect finish!  I only use 3/4 cup of confectioners sugar because I don't like super sweet frosting, but feel free to add more to satisfy your sweet tooth!

custard pumpkin pie

Alright y'all...this is for real the BEST pumpkin pie you will EVER have in your lifetime.  Another recipe that's been passed down from my great grandmother on my mom's side.  My mom's family is Mennonite btw and if you know what that means then you know they are phenomenal cooks!  I'm so blessed to have this recipe along with many others my mom and Mennonite family have passed down to me.  I look forward to making this pie every Thanksgiving.  This is one that will turn a pumpkin hater into a pumpkin lover y'all! Seriously.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope your Turkey Day is beyond blessed!

I love a classic red, white & blue outfit.  When I found this little winter white dress at Warren on King I just knew it would be a great piece to wear year round!  I obviously don't follow the "no white after labor day" rule...because well, it's stupid.  White can def. be worn throughout the fall and winter, you just have to style it with fall & winter elements.  Think wool, turtlenecks, textures, hounds-tooth, leather, flannel...I think you get the idea! While I love wearing bright white in the summer, I gravitate towards ivory and creams more in the fall and winter when I lose my summer tan.  I immediately thought about pairing this dress with a navy turtleneck and my red wool coat.  I'm already thinking of so many more ways to style her!  I'd love to know how you style your white pieces to make them more fall & winter appropriate! Make sure and check out some of my current favorite winter white items below and have an awesome Monday!

I usually post these on Wednesdays, but just couldn't get this one up in time.  Oh well, better late than never, right?!

Meet Morgan.  This little beauty is my little sister via Chi Omega. I just adore her sweet personality and sense of style!  She came to Charleston this past weekend and we had the absolute BEST time catching up and being super touristy together.  Saturday, we spent the day at Middleton Place horseback riding and touring the plantation grounds.  I hadn't been on a horse in probably 3 or 4 years, so I was anxious to get back in the saddle!  See us here & here having so much fun!!! Sunday, we met up for brunch at Another Broken Egg then toured the Edmondston-Alston house (which was AWESOME!) I highly recommend that tour if you're into that sort of historical stuff!

Now on to the fashion...Ever since I've known Morgan, she has always been a great dresser.  Trendy, fun and a lover of all things TJ Maxx (just like her Big Sis!).  I was thrilled when Morgan told me almost everything she was wearing was from TJ's!  The weather on Sunday was pretty miserable early on, but we did not let a little rain put a damper on our day or outfits!

Thank you Morgan for being a part of my Friendly Fashion series!  Your enthusiasm was too fun and much appreciated :)  I already miss your bubbly little self! In lieu of the nation wide frigid temps the past couple days, I wanted to share some of my favorite coats.  Enjoy and stay warm y'all!
