Thankful Thursday :)

So much to be thankful for today on Thankful Thursday!

1 • Beautiful Rides Home

I have about a 50 minute commute to work each way everyday..and some days I really don’t see anything on my way home. But I got quite the treat this week! A new watercolor every night it seems..these sunsets put me in awe of my creator and His handiwork!

2 • New Makeup!

My face has been acting like a teenager recently..(mid-20’s probs). I’ve never had breakouts this bad..I’m sure you’re thinking TMI! But I realized I hadn’t been throwing away my makeup like I should. As a theater nerd, my stage makeup teacher engrained it in our heads to chunk every 3 months, never use a sponge twice and always use disposable mascara wands. Needless to say..when the budget gets tight makeup seems like a trivial expense. So I threw away all my makeup, bought new sponges & applicator wands and cleaned the tar out of my brushes. I’ve been looking a bit like Rudolph lately (all the running outside I suppose). I went to Clinique to grab some redness reduction makeup. I found out they have a new cleanser! It’s hard for me to find a cleanser I can use due to my sulfate allergy. I LOVE IT! My face feels 300x better and I am already seeing an improvement.

3 • Office Organization // Pens

I have been stressed out a ton lately and I realized my room and office clutter were getting to my head. So this weekend I tackled my room and yesterday I tackled my office. It’s amazing how many pens one girl can have…

4 • Hand Me Down Sweaters

My mom recently gave me a bag of sweaters that she bought but has never worn. I’m digging them! They’re a bit out of my norm but it’s made my outfits become a bit more creative :) Today I’m rocking a teal and silver striped sweater with corduroy jeans (a steal at $1.98 at Old Navy last year!) paired with some insane blue eyeshadow :)

5 • Best Friends :)

I’m thankful for the big guy in that photo! This year marks our 4th year of being friends and I can’t believe that he’ll be leaving me in about 3 weeks! He’s graduating and it is going to be a bittersweet day for me as my little brother will be graduating as well. Cody has been the thorn in my side, my go to guy, my lunch buddy and just about the best guy friend a girl could ask for :) This week I got to watch him receive the Leadership Legacy Award and I was so proud of him! He has done huge things at our alma mater as an undergrad and I can’t wait to see what he’ll do as an alum.

So what are you thankful for this week? That Thanksgiving is next week!? Anxiously awaiting Christmas?
