turkey-free turkey day

oh god.
i ate too much.
i am so sure.

...but it was totally worth it. honestly. i'll admit it.

of course now i'm feeling extra lazy/bloated...but it's a good feeling.

it's great to see the whole family and eat! that's what good holidays are supposed to consist of: family and food. yes/yes?

me, my sister, and cousins

and now, my thanksgiving outfit + more thanksgiving pictures!

details: plaid dress (kensiegirl), gray belt and gray tights (f21), black satin flats (nanette lepore for keds)

my family just doesn't do turkey. we're more of a honeybaked ham kind of family.

mom and ham

and rice, naturally. we're filipino so thanksgiving always ends up being a mish-mash of filipino and american food. weird, but it works.


my giant cupcake turned out AWESOME. well, it did the second time i tried it. good thing i had 2 boxes of red velvet cake mix. i neglected to use the nonstick cooking spray the first time around, so the result was pretty...disastrous. me, my sister, and my cousin alyssa kept picking pieces off and eating it throughout the day anyway.

...but that's okay! the second one was beautiful. see for yourself:

told ya so. is that food network-worthy or what?

too bad i have homework this weekend. so much for recovery.
