8 Ways To Get Extra Brownie Points This Thanksgiving

It's officially "get out the kitchen" season, at least for me.

Is my mom the only one who asks for my help cooking, but ends up getting frustrated with me because I'm in the way more than anything?

Eh, I hope not. I swear my mom loves me.

I don't take it to heart, I mainly just laugh. It's funny because the holiday season can bring out anyone's frustrated side.

I mean, if you are helping your Grandma cook for Thanksgiving, you better be on your A game.

I say that because you know how serious they are about their cooking, and that's a bad side I definitely don't want to be on.

I'm totally kidding, but for real study the recipes up and down before you go help Grandma. HAHA

Now, if you know that you are not meant for the kitchen, like myself, then I have made a list of other things you can do to help out.

1. Go get the groceries 

It is the one thing that is most dreaded, so this will definitely get you extra brownie points!

2. Unload the groceries

Make your mama, grandmama, or whoever's hardheaded self, sit down and relax while you unload and organize the groceries.

3. Get out the mixing bowls & dishes

Save them from straining themselves and grab those pans, youngin!

4. Wash the dishes

It is very likely that the dirty bowls placed in the sink will need to be used again, so stay ahead of the game.

5. Fix them a drink

Whether it's wine, beer, sweet tea, or apple cider, you will be a lifesaver.

6. Go grab some food

I mean, fixing all these yummy meals has to make them hungry. Treat them to their favorite carry out, on you!

7. Clean the house

Clean house, happy person.

8. Finally, set the table

Before doing so, make sure you know the correct, etiquette, way to do so. I wanted to throw that out there to save you from an hour-long lesson on how to set a table.

By now, you should have made your way to the top of the favorite child/grandchild list.

Just kidding, they would never admit to that.

They will, however, be extra grateful for all of your help.

Thanksgiving is a memorable holiday and it should be made less exhausting.

By helping out in anyway that you can, it will help reduce Thanksgiving stress.

Be an angel this holiday, and even beyond 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.
