Thanksgiving prep is upon us …

… and we are hosting for the first time, which means there are a lot of statements like this floating around our house this weekend …ย 
First time hosting Thanksgiving

“Do we have enough cutlery?”
*digs out dusty “fancy” cutlery set in the basement*
“I didn’t like this gift at the time, but now I’m super grateful for it.”

“On a scale of 1 to 10, how important are cloth napkins?”

“Do we have enough large plates?”
*counts plates*
“Nope.”
*makes note to buy more Corelle at Walmart*

“Are paper napkins acceptable if they’re Thanksgiving-y and kind of fancy?”

“WHERE DOES A PERSON BUY TABLECLOTHS THAT AREN’T $40 each?!”
“Can you make them?”
“Out of WHAT? PINK CHEVRON FABRIC?”

“We’re going to need plates for dessert, too, aren’t we?”
*counts small plates*
“Damn.”

“I already feel the walls closing in around me.”

“Shit … we don’t own a gravy boat, do we?”

So what do you think?
