Hello, Thanksgiving!

Hello, lovely, lovely readers! First, I would like to direct your attention to the makeover that Femmena Mala has recently undergone. While I LOVED the header that Amy made for me a few weeks ago, I was feeling a little guilty about using a design that was not mine, and also using a premade blogger template. So? I got to work. Last night, I was up until 3 am waiting for Nick's Christmas present to go on sale, and in the meantime I did tons of research. I created the banner, modified a TON of html on the template, and, the thing I am most proud of, I created those little tabs that you see right under the header photo :) (go ahead, click 'em!) I am so excited that I did all of this on my own, and I am really eager to keep designing from here on out!

Also! If you are interested in looking at past Bloggin' Ladies features, they are all right up there, too. Moving on to more important things....

Today was spent eating lots of foods with first, Nick's family, and then mine! Lynzie shared her YUMMY tofurkey with me, complete with vegan stuffing, stew, and some delicious little apple + cranberry cake thingy. THEN we stopped at home to see the puppy for a little bit before heading to my parents' house. My mom's cooking is always delicious, and we had yet more food! I spent the rest of my time there reading by the fire while Nick watched a movie with my brother and uncles. I still have TWO more Thanksgiving celebrations to take part in (tomorrow for my dad's side of the family, and Saturday for Nick's dad's side). I am really looking forward to tomorrow because my aunt, whom is also vegetarian, is making some special dishes for us :)

ALSO! I have been wanting to blog about this ALL day. Last night was my first official shift at the groom shop and... I don't know what I was thinking. I don't know what I was thinking working with people and not puppies for the last 6.5 years! I LOVE it. The people there are SO nice, and I am loving hanging around all the adorable animals. I wish, wish, wish I had pictures to show. SO cute.

I will leave you with a video that my dad sent me via Facebook, today. I have had problems with anxiety associated with being by myself every since I started college, so this really resonated with me. Let me know what you guys think :)


  1. Wow! Good job! I'm working on my own as well, but I am so ridiculously indecisive.

  2. Thanks! I can't wait to see what yours looks like :)

  3. Thanks! I am really proud of it for my first tim :)

  4. You're working in grooming? *I* worked in grooming! It was probably the funnest AND most frustrating job I've ever had. There are so many things about it that make you think "ugh, this sucks! a poopy kennel!" But then you get to play with dogs ALL DAY LONG, so it's impossible to be in a bad mood!

  5. Yes!! I know I have only had one shift, but seriously, I feel like animals are my calling and this is awesome :) It is definitely hard work and exhausting, but SO fun. I love it :)


Thank you, as always, for stopping by! I appreciate you guys SOMUCH. I read and reply to EVERY comment, so leave as many as you like :) xoxo
