Easy-to-Watch TV for Thanksgiving Day

Hi all,

Is everyone looking forward to the baking, cooking, and family/friend time this week? I love it and cannot wait!

Originally, this post was about the BBC television show, The Great British Bake Off. I thought, if you are like me and don’t enjoy watching football, watching back-to-back episodes of The Great British Bake Off on Netflix would be a great alternative. It’s charming, family-friendly, and easy to watch while doing other things, like cooking. It is also one of my favorite cooking shows. However, I just found out that it is no longer streaming on Netflix, SO here are some of my suggestions in lieu of The Great British Bake Off:

Liz Climo Tumblr

Happy Monday all,

I love love LOVE finding artists and designers on the web. My most recent find is an artist named Liz Climo. I love her Tumblr.

She creates these sweet, whimsical, humorous comics that make you feel like a kid again.

They’ve given me a giggle and a smile this morning, so I thought I’d share.

Sparrows Lodge (Palm Springs, CA)

Hi everyone,

On Veteran’s Day Weekend, I watched two of my favorite people get married in Palm Springs. There were laughter, tears, champagne, sparklers, swimming, games, sunbathing, hot tubbing, s’mores-making, sittin’-around-the-firepit-sharing-stories, bicycling, and so much more. Not only did I fall even more in love with my two friends (and hot tubbing- needs a whole post by itself-it is a gift from the gods), but I also fell in love with the venue, Sparrows Lodge.

The thing I loved about Sparrows Lodge was that it felt both luxurious and homey at the same time. Each room comes with a Queen-sized bed, a private patio, and a rain shower (it’ll make you feel like a mermaid, bathing under a waterfall). Mine also came with a horse trough bathtub (two people can easily fit in and since it’s so deep, it’s like being in your own little private hot tub).

If you’re on your way to Palm Springs and would like a romantic, peaceful getaway, Sparrows Lodge is the way to go. Also, they provide breakfast with your stay (quiche, all types of toast, real butter, jam, coffee, teas, granolas, and if that’s not enough, you can order from the delicious menu provided by their amazing in-house chef, Gabriel Woo) .
