Can't Wait for Thanksgiving!

I'm getting so jazzed about the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday!!! I can't wait to hang out with my family over delicious food, prepared by Nana of course, followed by being silly with my sister b/c we've had too much Turkey. Which will inevitably lead to a nap... then we'll wake up, have a leftover turkey sandwich and some wine before we head over to Utica Square for Lights On! It's a Thanksgiving tradition that I absolutely love!

Santa comes to countdown...

The shops open for Thanksgiving evening and there's always a good deal!
And finally... they turn on all the beautiful Christmas lights!

It is most fun when you're enjoying a glass of wine out of a coffee travel mug. And always ends with a few pictures with the nutcrackers!

 The fam has already requested spinach artichoke dip from last year, along with crostini's.

But I'm thinking about bringing some cake balls also! I've only made the red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and vanilla candy coating.
 (yeah they're not the prettiest... but they were damn good!)

Does anyone have another good combination of cake balls they'd like to share? I'd love to try a pumpkin one!

I want your red velvet cake ball recipe! Those are my favorite! My company just ordered dark chocolate with pumpkin cake balls and they are to die for! Email me at please :)

Red velvet cakeballs! Oh my!! Those look fab! I was just telling someone that I have lived in Tulsa for 17 years, but have never been to Light's On...and really have no idea why. Maybe this year :)!
