Feeling Very Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, so I’m extra excited for what today has in store! We plan on having a big breakfast and watching the Macy’s Day parade (always a favorite!) followed by a late lunch at my parent’s house this afternoon. We are doing Thanksgiving round two tomorrow with Nick’s family – so there will be more delicious food and fun! Today I wanted to share a list of things I’m thankful for today and every day! Wishing you all a fun, safe, and great Thanksgiving holiday. I’ll be back tomorrow with fun sale details! xx

I am thankful for my home
Given everything that is going on in the world and the devastation occurring in California right now, I am very thankful I have a place to call home and a roof over my head. This is something that, admittedly, I take for granted, so I’m making more of an effort to remember not everyone is as fortunate.

I am thankful for my husband
Nick is my rock and I am very lucky to be able to do life with him. He is so kind, understanding & supportive. He always knows how to help me when I’m feeling down and he can make me laugh like no other. We make such a great team. Being married to him for the last year has been such a blessing and I always look forward to celebrating the holidays together.

I am thankful for my family
Nick and I both have a great family who are a lot of fun and incredibly supportive. We live close by, so we are thankful that we get to see (most) of our family fairly often.

I am thankful for my friends
Having a great friend group is so important, especially as you get older. I feel very fortunate to have a close knit group of girls – both childhood friends, friends that I met in school, and through blogging.

I am thankful for Charlie
I can’t even remember what life was like without my Charlie kitty in it! He adds such a fun element to our family and he really is such a great cat. He listens to me when I talk (sometimes!), he is very social, and he lets me give him all the kisses and cuddles.

I am thankful for those who work tirelessly and fight for our freedom
Those who risk their lives for us are true heroes, including law enforcement, fire fighters & medical personnel. I feel lucky to know many who do these jobs so we can remain safe and free.

I am thankful for you (my readers!)
I am so so thankful for all of your constant support! I’m thankful that I get to share my personal style and personal bits of my life here. I am grateful that I am able to have this job and for the friendships I have made with you all over the years! Knowing that you take a few moments out fo your day to read, like, comment,  and engage with me truly means the world! I feel like I have a fun friend group on the internet! 🙂

And on that note, I’m off to enjoy a day with family and lots of food! I hope y’all have a great Thanksgiving!

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario

  • Happy Monday, friends! 💓 Let’s start the week out right and spread a little kindness, starting with teachers! 👩🏼‍🏫 It’s August which means it’s back-to-school season, so I’ve teamed up with some other influencers to help #clearthelists for teachers and I hope you’ll join me! 📕✏️🖍📌📎📖💌 Please tag any teachers that are underfunded & desperately in need of supplies below. I have a teacher that I’m featuring on my IG Stories & you can see more lists on  @natsnextadventure @ashleyspivey @brooklynblonde1 @lipglossandcrayons

  • It’s the weekend! 🎉🙌🏻💙 planning on having a low key weekend & catching up on reading after a crazy week! These were a few of my favorite reads from July! I HIGHLY recommend #MrsEverything & #CityofGirls 📚(all my book reviews are on the blog - link in bio!) http://liketk.it/2DSVd #enwreads
  • To be completely honest, today has been a shit show 🤦🏼‍♀️ My morning started off at 3:15 with a sick pup & continued snow balling until about 5:00 this evening. Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
