(source unknown. somebody help me here!)


I got home last night an legit sat on the couch waiting for Michael to get home so I could complain about my day.

Let's talk about what is wrong with that scenario.
a.) it's super selfish
b.) it's super negative
c.) it's super selfishly negative

Luckily for me I have a rockstar boyfriend who calmed me down, went to the gym to workout with me, and then made me dinner. What-whaaaaaaat!

After dinner I got ready to set up my work computer and go over a project, and realized how much I had to be thankful for. 
I know you're all thinking: "LAURA. It's October 10th. Thanksgiving isn't for over a month. Cool your jets", but why do we have to wait until Thanksgiving to do a "thankful" post? 
After being so negative today, I figured it was time to do a quick post on things I'm thankful for. I really encourage everyone to try writing a post like this. I know it's cheesy, but thinking of all the positive things in your life can really improve your mood!
So here's what I'm thankful for:

- honeycrisp apples 
- my two cutest nieces
- nice comments on instagram + the blog
- hearing "thank you" for even the smallest nice deed
- small town wisconsin restaurants
-Breaking Bad
- Michael 
- comfy pj pants
-ginger ale
- ridiculous emails from friends
- the smell of fall air
- warm sheets out of the dryer
- the green bay packers
- cheap flowers from the grocery store
- finding new etsy shops to love
- buttered noodles (yes i'm 5)
- 25 cent machine toys
- this necklace

So, friends. Put all your fears of being cheesy aside, and tell me what you're thankful for!
I can't wait to read them!

  1. I love this! It's so easy to get bogged down in the negative stuff everyday and forget about all the good things there are in life! Some things I'm thankful for: sweater weather, coming home to a hot meal, my cat cuddling with me, and freshly painted nails. Among many others of course! :-)

  2. I love taking time to reflect on what I'm thankful for! I don't think that's cheesy at all! I'm thankful for legs that allow me to run, even if they hurt me sometimes, and even if I don't always go as fast as I want to. They take me all the places I want to go, and I should treat them better.

  3. weekends away, weekends at home, morning coffee (straight black, please), blustery fall days, boots, new military jacket to look ultra uber cool in, friends who send random texts to say "i love you", coming home to a cozy apartment after a long day at work.


Each and every comment absolutely makes my day! Thanks for taking the time to share some love, stop by again soon!
