Like my apron?

Apron info updated at bottom:


Hi! Come on in....


Let me just turn on the gas cooktop....


What can I cook for you?

Mom got the same apron. I guess that means she expects us to cook together?


You're not really going to make me cook the Thanksgiving dinner! Are you, Mom?

I want to wish everyone a blessed and happy Thanksgiving. It is so easy to be stressed out by all the preparations for guests and the meal (and I am). But I have to stop and think about all that I am grateful for...a strong faith, a wonderful and healthy family, great friends, and Kate Emerson is finally home to share the holidays with our family. I waited so long for that.
Happy Thanksgiving!
On a totally unrelated note---Does anyone else watch the Bachelor? What was up with him not choosing either of them? I stayed up until 11 p.m. to see the end and he didn't choose either woman. I was a bit frustrated. Anyone else see it or am I the only one who still watches that crazy show? I know my sister watches too.
This music is in honor of one of my favorite things...
Oprah's favorite thing special!
Oh, I cannot wait. It is on today!!! How am I going to keep Kate and the boys busy and quiet so that I can watch?
The apron is from Orient Expressed. They do home shows and I ordered mine when I had a show at my house but you can order on-line. They do take a few weeks to come in so check if you need it quickly:)


  1. Hi!
    LOVE the pics!!! Kate is an adorable chef!!! Where did you get that apron. I need them for the girls (including me!) I loved your post too! I am hoping we get to travel to KY tomorrow. I am waiting for the Dr. to call to tell me if Ruby Mei has "whooping cough!" If so, we are going no where, and I have some shopping to do... Praying we can go and introduce Ruby to Jeff's side of the family! So much to be thankful for!!! Blessings my friend! -Diana

  2. OMG! I watch te Bachelor too. Not that I say that too loud :O)
    I have no clue what happened so I can't wait to see what he does tonight??!? Did he choose one of the other girls instead??

    Love the song and Kates apron.

    Have a great day. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.


  3. Hi Ms. Kate, I'd like to place an order to go please...

    I watched the Bachelor as well and was a tad confused. Personally, I thought he was the worse Bachelor I had seen. I didn't see what any of the girls saw in him. It's such a train wreck of a show but I just can't stop watching. Go figure.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your very blessed family. I long for the year when our daughter is finally home.

  4. Love that apron! Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. cute apron! Have a lovely Thanksgiving. I will have to check Oprah out today.

  6. These pictures are too cute! Kate's tutelage at your feet (literally) will no doubt pay off! I just want to hug and kiss her.

    Totally thought of you last night when I was watching the Bachelor (because I remember you mentioning it in an email to me). I couldn't believe that dirty dog didn't choose anyone, either. One has to wonder what kind of issues he has...

    I am hustling to get my chores done before Oprah comes on in 90 minutes. Yea!!!

    Talk soon!


  7. Just darling..... so glad your Kate is home with her family. It is Happy indeed!
    Happy Thanksgiving.

  8. Very cute apron and very cute girl wearing it!!

    I'm glad I'm not the only shallow person who watches The Bachelor. :) I honestly didn't get into it much this season because I didn't have a favorite girl - apparently ole' Brad didn't either. It is a little strange that he didn't want to at least date one of them - he didn't have to propose. Something just isn't right.

    Anyway, enough talk of important world issues...Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  9. As I told you today, I gave up that show a few years ago, but remember how exciting the last episode can be...what a bummer!

    I love Oprah's favorite things too and will tape it to watch tonight when everyone is in must get a DVR!!

    I enjoyed our time together today, even if it was quick...thanks for blessing me with your friendship~

  10. Too cute.....and I am so watching Oprah as we speak! lol

  11. Great Pics and I love the apron. I don't know what is up with the Bachelor last night?? I was disappointed. I am recording Oprah so I can watch when everyone is asleep and I am alone later tonight. Hope you have a happy turkey day!

  12. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your special family! It's going to be extra-special this year with Miss Kate joining your family celebration.

  13. Kim,
    Kate just looks adorable decked out in her apron at the stove!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!


  14. Happy, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I am also, so thankful that our Mia is home to celebrate with her family ~ let's (try) to enjoy every single minute of it :)

  15. Wow, Kate has quite the set-up! Looooove the apron-but please tell her to keep her hands off the burner!lol

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too!!!

    (And, I didn't watch the Bachelor, but I tuned in last nite for the last 30 minutes cuz I knew it was the finale-I was confused...why did he buy a ring if he wasn't proposing? But, he was kinda annoying anyway, don't ya think?)

  16. And, oh yeah, Oprah's favorite things! It was RIDICULOUS! A fridge? For everyone in the audience? Holy cow!

  17. Kate looks so adorable in her new apron ... so sweet and festive!

    I also watch the Bachelor - crazy, crazy ending -I'll be interested in what he has to say for himself tonight. I really wonder why I watch this stuff ... but I just can't help myself:-)

  18. Yes, Kate -- I love your new holiday apron! We hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

  19. Kate looks so cute in her apron! I didn't watch this Bachelor, saw the first episode and I just didn't like him. Glad I didn't watch it now. Happy Thanksgiving!


  20. Oh I love her apron. That is just so sweet....Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  21. Love the pictures...
    Kate is adorable..
    And for the bachelor....
    That was really depressing..
    I wanted my PHOENIX Suns Cheerleader...
    Oh well.. they just spent millions of dollars for nothing..
    I LOVE reality T.V.
    Have a Great Thanksgiving..

  22. Thank you so much for your sweet words Kim, they meant so much to me. We will be fine, just need to get through the next few days. We received the "news" during the Bachelor last night, I was hoping that it would cheer me up, not the case. I didn't see that coming either! I taped Oprah today, I love this show, it is my favorite, someday I will buy something off of her list. I do have the Chico's watch, from a few years back, my mom bought it for me.

  23. I LOVE Kate's apron.

    I cannot believe I missed Oprah's favorite things!!! I never miss it. I haven't been watching Oprah this.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Let's catch up after the holidays.

    Give my best to Dave, the boys, and sweet Kate. season but to miss this... :(


  24. Kate looks ready for Thanksgiving in her cute apron! Have a great day!!!

  25. What a cute pic of the girl.


  26. Love it. I must have one for my Gracie. Please tell where you got that amazingly adorable apron. I see gorgeous clothing with monograms on your Kate all the time and I never see those in stores or around town. I want some! Also, the Bachelor does have "issues." Mister, "I thought I was taking the high road." I think he is just deeply afraid of any level of commitment. Maybe he will eventually get how much he hurt the girls by leading them on because hopefully he'll be treated the same way by some future girl.s

  27. Darling apron! You are cooking with your daughter this year! Life if good. Have a wonderful day.

  28. What a great helper and cute apron.
    I love your blooper cards.

  29. Oh, she is so cute; and talented just like her Mommy, setting that kitchen ablaze with all sorts of yummy things! Love the apron.


    The Sound of Music is my all time favorite this song!

  30. Happy Thanksgiving :D
    We need to take some time and chat next week. I feel like I haven't talked to you in ages!
    Ladybug hugs,

  31. I love Kate's apron on her, and it looks so pretty with her name there too! How fun you two will have cooking together, it looks like she's getting the hang of it already! :)
    I missed Oprah, bummer :(
    But I did stay up to watch the Bachelor! I felt so bad for the girls, I started crying. :(
    I think he just knew that (they were both great girls) neither one was "the one".


Thank you for your kindness.
