9 Things To Be Thankful For After Thanksgiving

During Thanksgiving, what we're thankful for is topical conversation... but what about after?

9 Things To Be Thankful For After Thanksgiving

The week of Thanksgiving is usually one of the only weeks of the year we make it a priority to be actually vocally thankful for things, which is absurd!

Here are nine totally awesome things we can be thankful about after the Thanksgiving holiday as we begin the month of December.

1. Christmas Music

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it's become socially acceptable to listen to Christmas music. When you want, where you want, and all you want. *rejoice!*

Here are two of my favorite Christmas jams: "Silent Night" by Johnny Cash and "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" by Michael Bublé.

2. Kermit Memes

All across the board, Kermit memes usually leave me laughing hysterically, or internally screaming. I can't get enough of them.

3. Looking forward to the future where Lorde could potentially release a new album?

IT HAS BEEN THREE YEARS SINCE LORDE RELEASED AN ALBUM. Could 2017 be the year? I've had my fingers crossed for an album drop from Queen Lorde since this time last year... and since... the release of her first one...

4. Christmas Movies

This is the time of year when all those fantastic movie channels start playing Christmas movies.

5. All the Holiday Makeup Collections

Some of the very exciting holiday collections to keep an eye out for include:

1. Urban Decay's Holiday Full Frontal Reloaded Vice Lipstick Set $325

2. Lush Cosmetics Father Christmas Wrapped Gift Set $49.95

3. Too Faced Grande Hotel Café $49

4. Zoella Beauty Spa in a Jar $13.80

5. Stila Star Light, Star Bright Highlighting Palette $39

6. Christmas Candy

As soon as Halloween ended, Christmas candy of all sorts started stockpiling on shelves in Wal-Mart, and just about every other store you can think of. My favorite holiday candy to keep stashed around? Hershey's Cherry Cordial Kisses. You can find me with them under the mistletoe.

7. Christmas Shopping

I love Christmas shopping! I love that feeling of buying nice little presents for the special people in my life. I also love getting involved in gift exchanges, because I love the mystery of secret gift exchanges. Also, Christmas wrapping paper is just too fun.

8. Elf reruns on TV

No explanation necessary.

9. She and Him Christmas Albums

God bless Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward for the creative take they've gifted us with the She and Him Christmas albums. Seriously, Christmas time would be very different without them.

I'm beyond glad that it's now a socially acceptable time of year to bump these festive jams at all hours of the day.

So... Maybe all the things I have to be thankful for after the Thanksgiving holiday have to do with Christmas time, but that's just fine with me.

Some of the more important things, like family and friends and home cooked meals I felt went without having to be said (because I'm thankful for all three at all times of the year, especially during the week OF Thanksgiving).

What are some things you're thankful for? Share, comment, and let me know!

Happy Holidays! :)

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
