tonic tuesday 11/30.

Don't make fun of me, but I completely forgot that today is tonic tuesday . Yesterday didn't feel like a Monday, and therefore today doesn't feel like a Tuesday. Unfortunately, I have work all day so I have to get this post done asap! All these items are from my "You Might Like" suggestions on Etsy. Click on the image to go to the Etsy listing.

music monday: The Besnard Lakes - "Like the Ocean, Like the Innocent: Parts 1 & 2"

These two songs are eight minutes long, but please don't let that deter you from listening. The actual video is just a still, so I recommend playing the song and continuing whatever it was you were doing until you hear the whole thing. You probably won't be sorry. Also, my I suggest that you enter these two giveaways ASAP-- • Pineapple Mint is giving away a vintage Coach bag that I would fight over. If you win, send it to me okay? Thanks. Ends 12/3. • Enter here to win not one, but two $30 gift certificates at Yonder . What a nice holiday present to myself winning that would be, huh? Ends 11/30. Happy Monday, folks. Let's see if we can all make it through another week. ;)



black friday! sale sale sale!


giving thanks.

I thought to celebrate the holiday today, I'd make a list of things that I'm thankful for (how novel!). In no order.. • (obviously) my family, boyfriend, friends, and health • white castle cheeseburgers • any/all apple products • vintage clothing • beer • whiskey • employment • my nikon • tide to go pens • arizona arnold palmers • fire pits • leather • baby magic lotion (I'm weird!) • driving with the windows down no matter the temperature • sales/coupons/deals • reggae music • any opportunities to travel • my wonderful dog, Freckles ..might add more later. Hope everyone has a lovely holiday! What are you thankful for? :)
