Monday's Blog is Full of Thanks

If you've been following my Vlogmas series, then you know I've had a terrible month. It's times like this that, as much as I hate to admit it, I actually have trouble being thankful for the little things in my life. When it feels like the whole world is collapsing around you the best thing you can do is count your blessings. Let's be real though - when it feels like everything good is coming down in your life it's hard to remember that you have blessings. This isn't just a "first world problem". This is a serious problem, and one that is fairly common. We all experience a sense of hopelessness from time to time, and it is completely normal. Just remember that it will get better, and there is absolutely no shame is going to see a therapist. Most companies have an employee assistant plan (EAP) that will give you 3 - 5 free visits per year and they're usually handled by an outside company so your employer will never know.

It took me the entire week to come up with my list for today's blog, but I finally managed to get one together!

1) My new velcro drink coozie from - it's pink and has rhinestones and has my name on it. I wrap it around my water bottles to keep them from freezing my fingers and dripping all over the table.

2) My new metal water bottle from - I bought a white bottle with polka dots and my name on it. Plastic water bottles are great, but they tend to grow bacteria and get scuzzy.

3) Christmas decorations - My whole house is Christmas-y right now, and I love it.

4) Trips to St Augustine - I live about an hour and a half from the beach. St. Augustine has their entire town decorated with Christmas lights, and I had planned to go with my boyfriend. Since I no longer have one of those and my best friend knew how much I wanted to go, she piled me into her truck yesterday and took me to see the lights and to do a ghost tour. The lights were gorgeous, and the ghost tour was super creepy!

5) Vlomas - I'm having trouble keeping up with vlogging everyday, but it is a great exercise and giving me some great practice at making vlogs.

*This post was NOT sponsored by I bought a Groupon several months ago and had planned to use it for a gift for my boyfriend. When it became obvious I didn't have to buy him anything, I bought myself a present for Christmas.

Monday's Blog is Full of Thanks

It's been a while. I've told you guys I am consistently inconsistent, and this is a perfect example. Since it's Monday, let's pick back up with a blog full of thanks!

1) Banana chips - I've been obsessed with them lately, even to the point that I'm figuring out how to make them myself since the ones you buy from the store are fried. That adds dozens of extra calories that you don't need.

2) Pumpkin Spice Coffee creamer - Yes, I am a pumpkin spice fanatic. I admit it.

3) Pumpkin Spice K-cups - Again, pumpkin spice fanatic. Maybe I should find a support group. There has to be one on Facebook, right?

4) How I Met Your Mother on Netflix - I'm in the middle of writing my final research paper for my Social Psychology class, and the 21 minute episodes are perfect for quick study breaks.

5) I'm having trouble pinpointing a 5th thing for today. There's so much, and some things I've already listed - my boyfriend for keeping me sane while I was cooking for Thanksgiving, my puppy for the early morning snuggles right before the alarm goes off, my new laptop that I got just for school and work. There's a lot to be thankful for!
