5 Thankgiving Dinner Plate Decorations from Loft101.net

There's nothing more exciting to look forward to on Thanksgiving Day than the meal itself.  The thought of eating all of those fixings and having an excuse to do it...LOL!! 

Well, if you are hosting, I'm sharing 5 of my very own dinner plate ideas to showcase that wonderful meal you are serving.  Any of these ideas will work with your Thanksgiving table decorations.  Have fun entertaining and Happy Thanksgiving!

If you are interested in where I purchased any of my table items to create these beautiful table plates, send me an email at Debsloft101@gmail.com and I'll be happy to share with you :-)

Happy Thanksgiving & Thank-You "Personally" from LOFT101.net!

As we prepare for one of the most celebrated holidays of the year, LOFT101.net wants to "thank you" personally, for being a part of our family!  It takes a lot to start a business and even more to sustain a blog site. 

Gaining attention and keeping attention of others is difficult simply because we all live in a world that is fast-paced and hurried.  Everyone has so much to do and late with doing it before they realized they were not on time.  I say all of this to say personally, "I appreciate everyone" who takes the time to read  just one post that I write.  

I appreciate all of you and it doesn't matter if you are a follower or viewer of Loft101, I appreciate you!  Kisses 😘 and big hugs to all that have come on board and have become FREE subscribers! You have joined this ride with me and I love ❤️ the company...LOL!!!

Please know that I strive to share "good stuff" that will interest you.  Life isn't always "happy" but living can be. Just take one day at a time and find joy in it.  Even when it's not so good, remember there is a reason for it and there is good  somewhere in that moment.  Be thankful for your good days and bad days because you are still alive! 

Thanksgiving is no doubt, the most appropriate day to be thankful to God for your family, your friends and for the life that God has given you.  Remember the loved ones that have gone home to be with God.  We miss them most, this time of the year but keep them close in your heart.  Take them with you, everywhere you go!  Know that they are looking back at you because God has them in the palm of His hands, as my Mom always says! 

Take time to thank God "first" for everything because He is the Reason For Every Season!  I love you all (I really do) and I wish you and yours the very best Thanksgiving Holiday ever...Stay safe on the roads, take your time and enjoy spending time with your family!

More to give, more to share, God is present, everywhere. 
Blessings to you!
From LOFT101.net

LOFT101.net LOVE IT Holiday Adventures!

Yes, we are 35 days away from Christmas Day and I have so much I want to do.  I want to share most of what I do with my LOFT101.net family and because I am wearing so many hats right now, it's been really hard to blog on a regular but I'm going to do my best to make up for lost time before this year is out!
  I have to admit I've been very busy but I am loving the work I'm doing as a professional coach and blogger.  I'm still building my business at Brownstonecoaching.com and as for LOFT101.net, there are a few things I will be doing and sharing with you before the end of the year and we are going to have a good time.  I'll invite you into my decorating project on my office bathroom as I repaint it and design it with décor that compliments my office.
Craft along with me as I welcome you into my LOFT101.net Office Workshop as I create some nice Christmas gifts you can make with DIY101 instructions I'll share with you for each item!
Get ready for the best "Cookie Swap" experience.  I'll welcome you into my kitchen as me and some of my closest friends and family bake up the best batch of cookies to exchange for the Christmas Holiday!
Here we go...come on into OUR HOUSE and keep following for FUN, FUN, FUN!!  I'll be starting one of these projects next week, after Turkey Day!

 I welcome you into our house this holiday season to join in on my LOVE IT HOLIDAY ADVENTURES.  I'll be sharing photos of each event.  I'm a little behind on redecorating my bathroom and this project may slip into 2017 but I'm going to try to stay on point with this adventure.  I'll keep you posted....LOL! 
The "What's on My Christmas Table?" is starting very soon as I begin to lay things out on my large craft table, take pictures and post them. I will create projects from those items.  You are going to love this adventure! 
Lastly, time for our 2nd Annual Cookie Swap! My friend Deb and I hosted a cookie swap a few years ago and it was very nice. So, we have decided to do it again but bigger and better!  We are adding some new flavor, new people and new recipes that will make this Cookie Swap unlike any other.  We are beginning to discuss the logistics (that's what we do as certified logisticians..LOL) of how we plan to pull things together.  I'll be sharing photos on LOFT101.net and of course I'll have plenty of pictures of cookies!!
1.  Refreshing my office bathroom (repainting and possibly wallpapering) 
2.  What's on my Christmas Craft Table?  (DIY projects from items on my table)
3.  Holiday Cookie Swap

Chicken Recipe: Deb & Dee's Caramelized Chicken Wingettes With Onions & Peppers!


I was in the kitchen with my hubby a few days ago and we came up with this recipe for delicious carmelized wingettes! It's Our Version of Caramelized Chicken with Onions & Peppers.  It's too easy and perfect for the holidays! 
Also, I'll be decorating my office bathroom soon, so keep following this week for my DIY Bathroom Makeover Project!
Additionally, I'll be posting my famous Guess What's On My Holiday Table? Whats that?  Well, I'm glad you asked...
 This is when I put all different kinds of things on a big craft table and create various holiday projects out of them in 1 full week.  You get to follow me throughout the week to see how a little of something becomes an awesome creation!   
Only LOFT101.net would do something as challenging as this!!  You can create the same things that I make with easy instructions I give you and you can keep them or gift them away to some special friends and/or family members!
 Stay tuned this week for more exciting posts and ENJOY THIS RECIPE...
We made a healthy salad to go along with it and it was delicious!
P.S.  Any questions?  Send an email to me at Debsloft101@gmail.com!  I'll get back to you as quickly as I can....I promise!

Preheat your oven & get ready to rock & roll!!

Season to your taste.  We used Lawry's Seasoning, Garlic Powder & Black Pepper on one side.  On the other side we sprinkled with Lemon Pepper.

Slice up some sweet onions and green peppers.

Add some fresh garlic "if you desire"!!!

Add a little Siracha to kick it up a notch!!

 Only a 1/4 of Siracha is you don't like HEAT!

Simple seasonings!

Celery Seeds.....Oh yea!!!

Got to go with the Adobo!!

Last but not least, add some good old
Chili Powder!
No doubt, must add some EVOO & Unsalted Butter (not too much)!


Brown meaty side first for about 45 minutes-1 hour.

Flip and brown side with skin.

In the meantime, hook up a healthy salad as your side dish!

Add onion and green pepper mixture to the top of wingettes and broil on low for 1o minutes (keep your eye on them so they don't burn)! 
Serve & enjoy!
