Hey all, I'm so excited about today's group intro/giveaway. My November sponsors have been sweet enough to come up with some thoughtful gifts that one of you will win! But first, let's meet these wonderful ladies.

I asked each of them to share their favorite memory from Thanksgiving this year...

For the past four years, I have celebrated Thanksgiving in New York City with my boyfriend, Brian, and his daughter, Emily. We always spend the morning in midtown Manhattan watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the afternoon cooking in our pajamas at home. My favorite moment from the holiday this year was hearing the crowds cheer as the first big balloon appeared where we were standing on Sixth Avenue. Everyone was so excited! It is always a thrill to be at the parade that I watched every year growing up in Minnesota. The balloons are amazing!

My husband is in the Navy recently returned from an emergency deployment after Hurricane Sandy so we stayed home. I cooked all day and he turns into the dad from A Christmas Story while the turkey is cooking and we sit down and have an enormously large dinner. Even the dogs had Thanksgiving dinners! My favorite moment was after dinner when we all cuddled up on the couch and my husband and our two dogs all took a nap cuddled around me.

For Thanksgiving, we had a huge gathering at my sister's house. We use the holidays as a time to have fun and hang out. Not to mention, EAT! My sister is a pastry chef, so you can only imagine the amount of food we had! We all had enough leftovers so that we wouldn't have to cook for a couple of days! My favorite moment of it all, was this was the first time we actually got to sit down at a table to eat. Most of the time, we don't have enough room for all of us. This year, my sister made it a point to MAKE room. It was great! These people mean the world, and by sitting down to eat, it made time go a little bit slower. That way, we could enjoy the time together a little bit longer!
