When it comes to Thanksgiving, I tend to be a bit of a planner. 

Ok I am a crazy planner, but despite my crazy planning, I tend to forget something. This year, it was forgetting the fact that I needed to plan for a cocktail to go with the appetizers that I know guests are bringing along with them. OOPS. 

Thankfully it popped into my brain this morning and I will be popping out to the store momentarily to grab what I need at the very last minute.
