Cuz its turkey to eat, so good

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope you stuffed yourself full of totally awesome food and had a wonderful day! Mine is barely beginning as I type this. Kids are in the living room fighting while playing LBP on the PS3. Hubby is snoring in bed and I am sitting here typing. This year started out great. I thought this was the year it was all going to turn around for me. Boy did it ever trick me. I did however grow as a person. It has been rough but I have survived. I just keep telling myself it could be worse. You all know that is my fav thing to say lol!

This day makes me forget the bad and realize how much I am truly blessed. My FB status says it so well...

"Giving thanks...I have been blessed with wonderful people in my life. My soul-mate who adores me just as much as I adore him and always makes my life better. Children that are healthy and make me laugh every day. A mother who loves me despite my faults and is always there for me. Cousins who are like my sisters and I can always talk to about anything. Sister who I love and cherish. Sis in laws that make me feel like we are blood. Aunt and uncle I love to hug. A father who wasn't always there but is making the effort now. AMAZING friends! I love you all very much!"

I have met so many beautiful people online. Friends that I hope I will grow old with. I made this page about 2 that I truly adore.

They don't judge me for what I DONT have. They lift me up when I feel down. They let me bitch and cry and whatever else I need to do. These two are FRIENDS. I will always see them as such and they will always have a special place in my heart.

What is a Thanksgiving day post without a black Friday sale to follow? Here you go my friends! Shop your little hearts out!

If it hadn't been for love

Next week is Thanksgiving. All my thanksgiving decorations were ruined. Totally my fault, so I ended up not putting anything up for thanksgiving. Boo me. Just not that into it right now. BUT that does not mean I shouldn't be thankful right? Full of thanks. I have many things to be thankful for. My family of course is my rock. What keeps me plugging along and trying my hardest. My husband is AMAZING. He loves me no matter what I look like or act like. He loves me despite my faults. My kids are truly wonderful little ones. Without them there would be nothing to push me to be a better me. My mom, she is a beautiful person inside and out. I appreciate her more and more every day. She is my shoulder to cry on and my hug to make the pain go away. My friends are awesome. I mean really. This amazing internet community that I have become a part of. I cant believe all the ladies who have touched my heart.

I made this book for my guest spot over at Gauche Alchemy.

*Oh yeah I didn't share that with you all yet have I?! Sheesh when your head is in the storm clouds lots of things get lost along the way.*

I am super excited they asked me to guest for them! I mean wow their kits are filled with some awesome stuff! LOVE IT!

The only thing I used that was not in the kits they sent was the Crate Paper. EVERYTHING else is from them.

I am going to fill my book with little thankful things that my family and I talk about this thanksgiving. Everyone should know I am thankful and what I am thankful for, even when my voice has long been silenced. Everyone.

Threw some Hambly Studios in for good measure!

What are you thankful for?

I got a pocket full of sunshine

I am a Hambly DT member!

Oh what an awesome thing to wake up to!!! Totally wasn't expecting this. After the call I got yesterday from the job I THOUGHT I had, I honestly prepared myself for a no thanks. Woke up to FB wall posts and 14 emails! It was pretty cool.

Thanks for all the love! It sure makes a girl feel special.

Seasons come and go

Ok so I am so far behind. As you all know I went to school to become an RDA. Hoping that I would get a job right away. That has NOT happened. In return I am VERY short on money. Well something happened on Halloween that just made it almost IMPOSSIBLE to make it. I wont go into detail but it really shook my world and dropped me on my head.

Why do things like this happen always around the holidays? Not to mention my laptop is no longer in working order and my hubs cell phone is on the fritz. Of course I can live without all that but still...They say when it rains, it pours and boy were they ever right!

I have had a few interviews...But no jobs. It really is a blow to your ego when you don't get that call back. Just gotta keep on keepin on I guess. I will get through it. I know this. Just is hard to believe sometimes. Blah!

As I stated above I am far behind. This page I did a while back. It is of my cousin Marky. He was having such a wonderful time on that rocking horse. Of course used more sass and Hambly.
Isn't the look on his face priceless? Adore!

Halloween you say?!? Yes. I should have posted this a while ago but there is a tutorial for this little Halloween chalkboard I made on the A Million Memories blog. Love how it turned out. Easy to make too!

You will see more Halloween in the days to come. I still never did post my mantel and decorations. Stay tuned! Oh and be sure to send more good thoughts and prayers. I can always use them.
