SO Thankful...and full!

Did you have a nice holiday?  I really did.  It was the first time I was able to prepare our Thanksgiving meal for my family, so it was really special for me!  Everything turned out really great...except the turkey, of course!  But I think turkey is just kind of underwhelming, in and of itself!

Instead of links today, I'm going list some things that I am thankful for, plus you all probably know the good Black Friday deals without my help!

~ My Shug

~ My supportive and amazing family

~ My crazy and goofy dogs

~ My intelligent and endlessly inspiring friends

~ My education...and continuing education

~ My work ethic I learned from my parents

~ My house

~ My job that has seen me through 3 degrees and counting!

~ Ryan Gosling;)

~ My car that has gotten me to and from wherever for over a decade

~ My health

~ Netflix

~ Gluten-free cupcakes

~ And pretty much a million other things!


P.S.!!!! Bestest Best is celebrating a birthday today!  Happiest b-day to her!

Link Love and Lovelies...and Some Gratitude

I'll tell you a little secret: I hold myself to some pretty unrealistic standards sometimes.  I also think I'm getting better at not doing this so often, but sometimes, I just want to give everything in my life 110%.  This, of course, is a pretty bad math equation and bad for human sustainability. 

It's been a pretty tough week over here in the Goldteef house, I won't go into boring detail, but I will say that we got a big perspective change to let us know that 110%, all of the time, always, is just plain dumb.  Do you know what's important?  It's taking 10 minutes out of your day to call your grandma.  It's finding the time to watch a silly sitcom with your husband.  It's sending that thank you letter (in the snail mail, YES!) that you've been meaning to send.  It's telling your mom or your dad or your moms and your dads that you love them.  It's doing this OFTEN.

So this weekend, take the teensiest amount of time to show some gratitude for the people you love.  I'm sure they'll love it, too.

~ Could live in these.

~ Her life seems pretty alright. Right?

~ Love this.

~ Mayyyybe I could ride a bike if it were this chic!

~ This Canadian tuxedo had me at hello!

~ OMG.  I want this to be my uniform!

~ And a little more gratitude.

Have a lovely weekend.

Link Love and Lovelies

Oh my goodness, you guys.  Last night was SO much fun and it's been quite awhile since I've been able to take a little break from the grind of my master's program!  Needless to say, attending the opening party for Salt Lake City's first H&M and Crate and Barrel was something I'd been looking forward to for weeks.  There were endless delicious Kir Royales with cranberries and local brews to drink and a discount for all the invited shoppers!  We even got to skip the long line that wrapped around the building!  It.  Was.  So.  Fun.  I also managed to score some cute clothes for my rotations as well as this poncho.  I was a little on the fence about it, but once I put it on, I was sold!

Here's to a warm and cozy weekend!  I'll be snuggling in my new poncho;)!

THIS.  Maybe the best tumblr of all time.

I love chai in the wintertime and this recipe fits the bill!

Oh deer, indeed!  Love.

STILL obsessed with this haircut...

But, I'd always take hair like this...

Love these tricks for makeup for girls with glasses.

Forever inspiring color palate.

Friday Link Love and Lovelies

Hello, remember me?  It's really been forever since I've even had two spare minutes to rub together lately!  I miss Goldteef!  I miss having time to read all the beautiful and inspiring things about friends near and far.  But, honestly, I miss fake shopping.  Fake shopping?  Oh, you know what that is!  It's where you go to sites that are forever outside of your price range (I'm looking at you, EmersonMade!) and you fill up your cart with lovely things you wish you could purchase but never would.  It's also shopping for events that are very unlikely to happen in the near future (I'm not really planning on running down the steps of the Louvre anytime soon, but I DO have the dress for it;).)  Well, since I'm here for a sec, I'd thought I'd post some lovelies for your weekend!

~ A good thing to remember.

~ Red pants, I can't quit you!

~ Need to read this.  Now.

~ Those cray-cray Olsens are doing something right!

~ Happy feet.

~ Already thinking about the holidays!

I hope you have a warm and restful weekend!
