The Post About Being Thankful

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

An "I'm thankful" post full of sincerity and perhaps just a little sarcasm. Just a little.


So come cozy up by the fire with me and let's all talk about what we're thankful for. It's going to be fun.

I'm thankful for Instagram filters.
Because now I can pretend my skin isn't glowing thanks to x-pro II.

I'm thankful that dark roots are in style right now. I haven't colored my hair in seven months. That's fun. And cheap!

I'm thankful for the mens section at the Urban Outfitters outlet by my house. I'll stop buying my sweaters from there when they stop making such cute girly sweaters for men.


I'm thankful for Christmas candles. And Christmas Reeses.
However I'm not thankful for when Christmas candles accidentally set a large chunk of your hair on fire. That happened on Monday. I'm still smelling burnt hair.

I'm thankful for space heaters.
I sure do love our cute little Chicago apartment but boy is it drafty.

I'm thankful for people that can't figure out that round-abouts aren't in fact four-way stops. They make life more interesting.


I'm thankful to everyone who has supported my Talk Herbie To Me brand. The nice comments and emails sent my regarding this post were awesome. For those of you who asked, yes I do a trademark. However the big guy I'm going up against doesn't seem to care. It's going to take a battle, but I've never been one to stray from that. I'll keep you updated... Anyway, back to the happy stuff.

I'm thankful Harlow ate an entire loaf of bread last night. He knew I shouldn't be eating that many carbs so he took care of the problem for me. He's such a sweetheart.

I'm thankful I don't have children. Only because I just found out toddlers often poop in the bath during bath time. And Lola had craisins for dinner... Big shout out to my sister for passing on that fun story to me the other night. Lola and Knox will never get cousins if you keep telling me stuff like that.

I'm thankful I'm getting my new iphone today because my current iphone thinks it's cute to power down at any moment whenever the battery falls below 60%. How am I supposed to take 24/7 photos of Harlow without a phone? These are real problems.

Speaking of, I'm thankful for my new iphone cover from Casetify. I'm hoping the beach scenes will keep me warm during the next terrible winter months.


I've ordered several phone covers from Casetify and have loved every one of them. Want to win your own? Just enter below!

And finally, I'm thankful for all of you. Thank you for stopping by each day. I know you probably just come to see pics of Harlow, but I appreciate that too.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. If you're going out on Black Friday please be kind to each other. Or don't. JUST GET THAT TV!!! God bless ya.

  3. Oh, roundabouts!! My favorite is when someone gets into the roundabout and then keeps stopping to let other people in. Disaster! I personally love them, but they're building a new one in our city right now and it's caused quite the uproar. People just don't like change! Love the iphone cover!

  4. Happy day of celebrating. I'm thankful for your sarcasm. It's fun. And I don't get the GBR thing. I'm sure that makes me an idiot. Off to google.

  9. I am thankful for my friend Brandon who "patted" aka beat the shit out of my head last year as I was standing under a mushroom heater and my hair started to smoke/borderline catch on fire. I only use about half-a-can of hairspray on a daily basis, but that day I had a whole can of hairspray in my hair because it was raining and I needed my hair to not frizz as I was in a wedding.

    I am also thankful for the fermentation of grapes and the yeast that makes wine...or however that process goes haha!
