JORD Wood Watch Giveaway | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Happy post-Thanksgiving, everyone! How are we doing? Have we fully recovered from the turkey hangover yet? I officially called it quits on leftovers yesterday — I just couldn’t do it any more. It was all fun and games and pumpkin pie and green bean casserole until my belly said enough is enough. Time to move onto Christmas cookies and holiday gifts and glad tidings!

Speaking of holiday gifts and glad tidings (not the cookies, though those are coming your way soon, too!), I’m here today to share with you a fun partnership between Girl Versus Dough and JORD Wood Watches that gives you, dear reader, the opportunity to get your own unique watch (and/or one for someone you love) at a generous discount. Hip hip for the holidays!

Happy Thanksgiving. | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

(via)

I just wanted to pop in on this celebratory Day of Eating to wish you and yours the happiest, coziest and most peaceful Thanksgiving.

I know this month (year?) has been a bit of a whirlwind for all of us, each in our own way, and my prayer for this holiday and for the remainder of the season is that despite all of the brokenness, differences in opinion, heartaches and longings we bring to the table, we also bring joy, gratitude, love and compassion. It’s a tall order, to be sure, but it’s the only thing that will keep us going forward together. That, and a belly full of turkey and pumpkin pie, amiright.

However and wherever and with whomever you celebrate this holiday, I wish it to be full of all the good things. xo

A Season of Hope | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Happiest of Fridays, friends!

In case you missed our announcement on the social media, we are excited to share that we’re adding another little pumpkin to our family next April! For those who are interested, I’ll be 14 weeks along this Sunday (the babe is the size of a peach or a lemon, if you’re into those fruit comparison things) and yes, we are definitely going to find out what we’re having (coincidentally, on the same week we’re closing on our new house)! Because I am the worst with surprises and I have a serious need to plan ahead.

Avery at the Apple Orchard | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Our annual trip to the apple orchard is officially in the books for 2016! Our fridge is now half full with apples that I have big plans for (if Avery and I don’t snack on all of them first because you guys, straight-from-the-orchard apples are TOO GOOD) — apple pie, apple crisp, apple pancakes, apple oatmeal, baked apples, apples with pork chops, the list goes on. Forget pumpkin — I’m all about the apple right now.

We spent a sunny Saturday here in Minnesota picking Haralsons and Honeycrisps from the trees at Afton Apple Orchard and I snapped a few pics, if you’d like to see.

Thank You Day with Merci | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

Gratitude is something we often have for others, but is not something we often express. I know in our own little family we do our best to say “thank you” as often as we can — it’s important to us to know that we are grateful for each other and thankful for what we do for each other, no matter how simple the act.

But nobody’s perfect. And in the hustle and bustle of life, we often forget to say those two words to those we care about, even if we feel thankful in our hearts. This season of life for us is especially busy — we are building a house, we are working, we are traveling, we are heading from errands to meetings to play dates and back again. I know you probably feel the same way, too. But maybe it’s time to take a moment, just one moment, to show someone in your life that you care about them — with chocolate.

And what better day to do it than today, on National Thank You Day?

Life, Lately | girlversusdough.com @girlversusdough

I feel as though it’s been a literal age since I last updated you on what’s going on behind the blog, so I thought I’d take this moment to fix that. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, maybe a doughnut (yes, yes, definitely a doughnut), and let’s chat!

First, can we take a look at that peony in the photo above? A co-worker of mine brought those from her garden into work this week and they are STUNNING. And huge. Like, the size of my head. And I get to look at them all day long from my work kitchen and they make me so happy.

Second, my child just turned two years old a couple of weeks ago, so THAT gives me all the feels.
