Mixin' It Up With Mary: Who Needs a Pinterest-Perfect Thanksgiving Anyway? (VIDEO)

mixin' It Up With Mary ThanksgivingIf the thought of hosting Thanksgiving makes you feel woefully inadequate, you're in good company. The Stir's entertainment editor Mary Hawkins (and probably thousands of other moms) believes Turkey Day is just another reminder that she's never going to be the next Martha Stewart. 


But that's A-OK with this hilarious homemaker, who's making reservations and a side of spicy cocktails this holiday. 

Seriously, can anyone rock a tablecloth like this hot mama? And she's totally speaking the truth when she says there's nothing like going on Facebook and seeing fabulous table settings to make you feel like a total turkey. Coordinating your outfit to match your festive napkins and tablecloth -- oh please! Don't even get her started!

If you're someone who also lacks the time and inclination to whip up a feast for the hungry masses this holiday, don't feel ashamed. Instead, revel in the deliciousness that comes from doing nothing other than stuffing yourself this year.
