Happy Thanksgiving!

ST

Wow, can you believe how quickly Thanksgiving came this year? I blinked and it was here. It’s strange how life works sometimes, when I was a kid the Holidays seemed to take years and years to arrive but the older I get the quicker they come.

Turkey and all the fixings sure is nice but in my opinion we definitely don’t need a single day of the year to be thankful, we should always be thankful from the point we wake up in the morning to the point we get into bed at night. But Thanksgiving is a nice little reminder, just in case we’ve forgotten since the hustle and bustle of life sure does keep us crazy, to be thankful for all we have be it the big stuff like a roof over our heads, food in our stomachs, and people to love to the little things like having a good laugh or enjoying the comforts of watching a TV show under a warm blanket.

I have many, many, many things to be thankful but I wanted to take time out and remember how thankful I am for each of you. Thanks for visiting, thanks for keeping in touch with me via Twitter, E-mail, and Comments. Thanks for sharing the fun, sometimes weird and wacky, and always awesome road of makeup with me. You’re all like my extended family….I love chatting with you daily about beauty as well as random other bits and bobs! I’m so blessed to have each of you in my life even though most of us have never even had the opportunity to meet, share a cup of tea, or even hug.

I’m so blessed to have such amazing readers!

Remember to eat more than one dessert, be sure to get up early and steal all the great Black Friday makeup deals online in your pajamas, and most important I hope all of you have a blessed, happy, and safe Thanksgiving!

    What a NICE thing to say to all of us! Happy Turkey Day to you too! Ya know, there are a ton of other beauty blogs out there but hands down this one is my favorite because of your warm, friendly attitude and approach to helping people with all of the info you provide. I love coming here every day and reading your reviews, the only problem I have is that thanks to you I want to buy even more makeup than ever! Thanks again and don’t eat too much! :)

    Happy Turkey Day! Thank you Muse for all you give.

    I just put on a pot of sauce for tomorrow – lasagna, the perfect after turkey day meal. LOL

    DH is cooking the turkey this year. Talk about time flying (wait… it just gets faster, take it from your older sistah). I really don’t know what happened to October and the end of November is here. Life has been spinning so fast that I’m taking this 4 day holiday to just chill out at home. I couldn’t bring myself to get in the car to go ANYWHERE.

    I hope everyone has a drama free holiday (unless of course drama is your thing LOL). ((((HUGS))))

    I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving sweetie! I so do enjoy reading your blog and even though I’m older and many of the items you share with us I can’t wear myself, I always make notes because (shimmer and sparkle aren’t my friends anymore :() I have 3 daughters ages 31, 16 and 15 and I purchase goodies for them based on your recommendations. I hope your holidays are as filled with joy and as wonderful as you are! Take care!

    Aw, that’s such a touching, beautiful post. Sadly we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in this part of the world (obviously no pilgrims came to the Balkans and our ancient harvest festivals seem to have got lost somewhere along the way), but all the same it’s a great opportunity to take a moment and remember all the people and things one is thankful for. Like for example this lovely blog – I’ve lost count of the times your posts, that special unique combination of gamer-meets-beauty-lover humour has brightened my day. Thank you and happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I grateful for you too! I so enjoy your posts on items, whether the product is good or bad but i LOVE your silly, snarky references when you stray a bit from your topic. Everyone that visits and then comments your blog has been really sweet and kind, no dissent. I can’t wait to see what you hauled during the Black Friday shopping extravaganza!
