Mini DeLites: Thanksgiving & Stuff


mini delites thanksgiving 4 | by the skinny confidential

Oh hi, hi, hi.

We haven’t really had any one on one time lately, have we?

Let’s— shall we?

Ok I’ll go first: Thanksgiving was Thursday, obviously. To be honest the standout of the day was the jalapeño corn bread & my stepmom’s purple kale ( yes KALE ) and baby’s breath table— she is so crazy talented!! Look:


LIKE it was die cute. Maybe I should have her guest post a tutorial on the blog?!

Michael’s mom, Lisa, also did a beautiful job too as you can see. Every year she does a different theme & her flowers NEVER disappoint.

So anyway, we started Thanksgiving with the best intentions AKA The Skinny Confidential Bombshell Body Guide…& ended the day stuffed with cream cheese frosting pumpkin roll, corn bread, & ridiculous amounts green beans.

At least we worked out?

Just so you know: the photos are of Jordan ( Michael’s sister ), Nico ( her BF ), Gar Bear ( Michael’s dad aka Susan Senior ), & Michael.

Strapping boys, right?

Susan Senior is a real LOL. But you guys know that if you follow me on Snapchat.

We celebrated at my parent’s house later in the day where my dad served his special Southwestern turkey ( yummm ). Here’s an iPhone snip of me & my dad, love him:

After Thanksgiving we woke up super early with the dogs to shoot our Save The Dates. I’ll share them with you guys when they’re all ready…in 2089.

I kid, I kid.

You should know there’s really nothing like waking up at the butt crack of dawn, fully bloated, after stuffing your face with carbs, to shoot ‘candid’, laughing casually-ish photos in a see-through dress ( LONG STORY ).

Let me tell you, BARRELS of fucking fun. BARRELS.

After the shoot I did a girl’s spa day which is exactly what the doctor ordered because BLOOD ORANGE MIMOSAS, BLOWOUTS, & DEEP TISSUE MASSAGES?

Yes please, thanks.

What else?!

The weekend was mellow. Our friend, Westin, came into town & we took him to our all-time favorite San Diego restaurant: Cowboy Star.

If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend the charming, old school restaurant. They have the best grass-fed steaks & use only the top of the line ingredients for cocktails. It’s DELICIOUS.

Sunday was spent reading & cleaning & working— rinse & repeat. I swear I have laundry coming out of my ass every Sunday. Is anyone else like this? & by the way, I promise I’m going to do a full on book club post because I’ve been reading so much lately. I can’t stop. Stay tuned because it’s a long, fun list!

Bottom line: this last week has been madness but regardless I’m really ready to buckle down & do some holiday shopping. I’ll be posting my favorite gift ideas all month.

In other news, I’m sharing two TSC Snapchat Series a week where I’ll be sharing mini tutorials of smoothies, fridge hauls, & cute/quick ideas, so be sure to follow ‘laurynevarts’ if you want to see!

Ok, your turn: tell me about your holiday weekend? What’d you cook? Who’d you see? What’d you wear?

Happy December!

From my bed, under 183737 covers because I’m freezing my ass off in 55 degree weather like a pussy willow. & drinking sparkling water of course, lauryn x

  1. This all looks SO delish! I’m jealous that we don’t have a Thanksgiving in the UK ( or Aus, where I currently am ). Any excuse to eat basically a second Christmas dinner sounds like a good idea to me!

    Nicola, xo

  2. Looks like you had an awesome weekend! I love the purple kale touch, so unique and adorable! It rained so much all of Thanksgiving in Texas, so I pretended it was cold and wore cute fall clothes. I really love that white top you have on btw! Too cute!

  3. Haha sounds like you had a blast! We don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving in the Netherlands (of course) but somehow Blackfriday did cross the ocean and all of a sudden it got crazy busy at work because of that. Haha how silly is that? Anyway can’t wait to see those save the dates!


  4. American Thanksgiving seems SO MUCH COOLER than Canadian Thanksgiving…you guys get waaaay more into it. At least we get to piggyback on Black Friday! Can’t wait to see your engagement photos 🙂 xo

  5. Wow, those centerpieces and flowers ARE gorgeous!! What a talented bunch you guys are!

    xo Annie

  6. Hi Lauryn!!

    Could you do a snap series or blog post on how to keep fruits and veggies fresh? I am a smoothie and juice addict, but I never know what to refrigerate vs leave out. Also, the crisper drawer in my fridge scares me because I don’t know what to put in it. Crisper/fresher controls on the fridge? My raspberries go bad in like 2 days! I know I could google this, but you’re the expert! Thanks so much! Love your blog!

  7. Girl you look so great – I loved this update! I felt like I missed you – ha.

    The family looks so adorable it’s sort of absurd.

    Glad you’re happy and chilling out a bit! Good to hear 🙂


  8. Wow Susan looks just like her daddy! hahaha you should do a post about how you came up with then Susan and why. It’s hilarious though.

    Such a lovely couple you guys! Happy belated Thanksgiving.



  9. Hey! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving with family 🙂 I was wondering who your photographer was for engagement photos? I am having the hardest time finding one! I live in SD and am from LA, so any location would work. Thanks so much!

  10. I logged the most activity day this year on my fitness tracker on Thanksgiving. It was mandatory with all of that yummy food!
