Just be thankful

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, by far, and it's not just because of the food (although that doesn't hurt). I love that Thanksgiving is about family, food, and [why can't I think of another f-word] feeling grateful [ha! found one]. It also gives way to the excitement and anticipation of Christimas, because even though the stores have had Christmas things on the shelves since July, now nothing stands between me and gingersnaps, which tie with shortbread cookies for most underrated Christmas cookies. Before I digress any more, let me just leave you with my Thanksgiving Thankful list because everybody's doing it and I'm nothing if not a bandwagon jumper onner.
Oh that's not wine, it's Martinelli's because we're full of excitement and sobriety.
-My faith. I don't discuss it very much on the blog, but it's a big part of who I am.
-This blog.
-That baby powder doubles as dry shampoo.
-That ombre is a style so I don't have to worry about getting my hair highlighted anymore.
-Blog friends...seriously, you are all amazing.
-My family. Even though sometimes they drive me nuts and make me want to rip my hair out, we have a bond that only gets stronger as we get older.
-That big purses are still a thing so when I go to the grocery store or Target I don't have to buy a paper bag for 10 cents since my county banned plastic bags.
-Baby Kate....and her nonexistent eyebrows (don't worry, I'll teach her how to fix that).

-Sweat pants.
-My car. Her name is Bruce Wayne.
-My city and my apartment.
-My job. Even though I complain about it and sometimes hate the 6am wake up call, I love it.
-My IRL friends, who are irreplaceable, hilarious, thoughtful, and all the good words.
-That I'm finally able to embrace and enjoy being single. It took years, but I'm so so so thankful to be here.

-Diet Coke.
-Bubble gum.
-Funfetti cupcakes.
-Funfetti cupcakes with rainbow chip icing.
-In N Out burgers.
-Pie (duh).
