Let's face it. This week is super short. If you happen to live far away from family, you're probably already traveling. You're frantically wrapping things up at work before hanging that glorious proverbial "Out of office" sign up at your email inbox. And, if you're like me, you really haven't had much time to prep what to bring your family or hosts this Thanksgiving.
And if we take this one step further into airing Krystal's flaws, you may not be, um, well all that culinary inclined, meaning, I'm pretty hopeless in a kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I can follow the instructions on a brownie box, which is what I usually default to saying when my date of the moment raises his eyebrows at this statement (c'mon dude, I'm not going to fault you if you can't change a flat tire, which let's face it, you probably can't, so let's ditch the gender stereotypes at the door, shall we?).
But you know what I am good at? Knowing exactly how to bring a smile to my hosts' face just the same.
This year, I'll be staying in New York for what has been affectionately dubbed an "orphan Thanksgiving" with a ragtag team of Aussies, Brits and a few Americans. For years when I don't make it back home for Thanksgiving, I love showing up with a few surprises for the host, including a couple hearty bottles of red wine and a little flower arrangement for them to either include in their table set up (or just for them to enjoy afterward). If you follow me on Instagram, you know I'm a huge fan of BloomThat and have been since they launched in the Bay Area just a few years ago. Naturally, I was stoked to hear they recently expanded out here to the East Coast for same day delivery here in the city. And naturally, I was even more stoked to find out they've recently expanded their next-day delivery service to cover my hometown in Nevada.
Which means a certain mama in Reno is getting a little sumthin' sumthin' on her birthday coming up! ;)
Whether you're headed home or staying local with friends for Thanksgiving this year, you can still scoop up some blooms today before Turkey Day (just make sure to order before early afternoon today to ensure they arrive in time as they won't be delivering tomorrow). And to sweeten the deal? Use the code KRYSTALBICK10 at checkout for 10% off!
