Friday Favorites: Thanksgiving at Home, Holiday Sales and Tybee Island Vacation

Happy Friday Friends! I hope whatever kind of Thanksgiving celebration you had yesterday it was a good one! In the midst of Thanksgiving and traveling earlier this week, I almost forgot to pop on here with a Friday Favorites! As usual, I am sharing some favorites in home, style and family!

Tybee Island and Savannah Family Trip

It has been a busy week that started with a vacation earlier in the week and then Thanksgiving at home yesterday. Last Friday, we left for a family vacation on Tybee Island. It was a twelve hour drive for us but it was well worth the travel time! We had a perfect few days of relaxation, sunshine and family time. It was a new area for us and we fell in love with the charm and laid back vibe of the town.


Our cottage was so cute and I would definitely recommend it for a family of 5 or 6.

There was a heated private pool which was a huge bonus for us! The kids swam for hours every day.

We loved the screened in porch for our morning coffee or to hang out in the evenings.

We also had a fun day in Savannah, Georgia. I will share more details on our entire trip on Tybee Island and Savannah very soon!

Small Thanksgiving at Home

A year ago I would have never guessed our Thanksgiving dinner would just be our family. Last year, we were hosting 20+ family and had a lot of house guests. Nonetheless, this small Thanksgiving Day at home was still a special one.

We made a few new recipes including this Fall Panzanella Salad from Two Peas and Their Pod and these Pecan Pie Brownies from Homemade Interest. Both of these recipes were SO GOOD!

Also, we kept it simple with a few store bought side dishes. It was a good balance of easy and homemade sides!

Black Friday Holiday Sales

Once the dishes have been cleared on Thanksgiving, I like to get in my pajamas and look through all the sales. This year’s Black Friday will be a little different and a lot of the stores are extended their sales over the next week. So, the pressure to do all of your shopping this week is a little bit lighter.

Still, it is fun to look through the deals and take advantage of the good sales! I will plan to share more sales over on Instagram today. But, I wanted to share a few things that I have found so far:

Evereve Clothing Everything on Sale

When I got home from our trip, I had a Trendsend box waiting for me! I still have to try on all of the clothing but this Leopard Print Cardigan (no longer online) has already made the cut. I wore it on Thanksgiving and it was so cozy!

Leopard Print Cardigan Sweater at Evereve

I had a lot of fun trying on this Glitter Cardigan Duster! Oh my goodness, this cardigan would be so fun for New Year’s Eve. It is comfy enough to work for a New Year’s Eve at home, but otherwise I am not sure that I would wear it. Got to think about this one!

Sequin Duster Cardigan

There are definitely a lot of cute items at Evereve right now!

Spaces Planner

Now is the time to get a new planner for 2021. My favorite planner from Spaces Planner is on sale this weekend.

Spaces Weekly Planner

I love the unique format of the weekly layout. There is separate categories for personal, housework, health, errands and relationships. Then, there is smaller boxes for each day. I like this format because I often have goals and to dos for the week and not always specific days I need to do them.

There are 3 gorgeous designs to choose from. You can use code THANKFUL for 20% off your order!

Fun Gift for Movie Nights

I noticed that our Bean Bag chairs are  on major sale (which does not happen very often). We got these bean bag chairs at the beginning of quarantine and they have been worth the investment.

Disney staycation ideas

The best feature of these bean bags it that they can be opened up into beds. So fun for sleepovers! I looked for a long time for the perfect bean bags for our basement and I am glad that we decided on these!

Beachwaver Curling Iron

A really popular gift for teen girls is this Beachwaver Curling Iron. My daughter has asked for one of these for Christmas and I included this item in my Teen Girl Gift Guide.

You can use code BLACKFRIDAY30 for 30%! Some items are up to 70% off.
