Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I hope everyone is either spending time with family or heading toward them today. We are spending the day with Ross's side of the family and then making our way to my parents' house on Thursday. Count me in for a double dose of turkey and pumpkin pie.

Military Top: Sosie c/o (similar) // Cream Top: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's (similar) // Leggings: Old Navy // Boot: MIA Calvary // Leopard Infinity Scarf: Express (now 50% off) // Gold Pave Bracelet: Target // Micheal Kors Watch c/o Jeweler's Wife // Ring: Kendra Scott c/o Jeweler's Wife // Glasses: H&M (similar)

I truly am one blessed lady and have so much to be thankful for over the last year. I have a loving, sexy, blog picture taking, hard working, strong hands, gentle hearted husband that puts up with all my shenanigans. Two healthy and gorgeous girls that keep me on my toes and fill my heart with pure joy. A family that supports me beyond my wildest dreams. A circle of friends that have stuck by me through good times and bad. The opportunity to travel more this year than any other and to see places I have never been. Blog opportunities and partnerships that I will forever be grateful for. Readers that touch my heart on a daily basis. Last but not least, a church home that has brought me closer to The Lord.

Sometimes I gripe and moan over the small imperfections that the world throws my way, but in the grand scheme of things, life is pretty darn good and I am content.

I wish you and your family a safe and glorious Thanksgiving. Don't forget your elastic waist pants.

I plan on being here in blog land the rest of the week to share some holiday gift ideas and Black Friday deals. Not sure if I will be brave enough to hit the stores, but I have a feeling I won't have the willpower to stay away.

 **If you are linking up today, the only request is that you follow my blog with GFC or Bloglovin' and link back to it in your post. It's how weekly link ups work. Oh, and go meet some new friends!

Anyway....a double dose of Thanksgiving sound fantastic! Enjoy every minute of it. We're all so blessed, aren't we.

I just came up with a great idea for you...every now and then you should do a giveaway where let one of your readers win your entire outfit. You should go ahead and start with this one, and then just let me win!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Shanna. I have said it before but I'll repeat: You're one of my favorite bloggers because you are so grateful for the opportunities you are presented with and for the readers that come here each day. It's really opened my eyes to how others act and react to their readers, and I've gotten into new blogs and unfollowed others from that. You're great, and have an awesome holiday!
