Thankful Thursday: Week 8

Happy Thursday!  It has been a really great week so far!  Nothing particularly exciting has happened but it's just one of those weeks where everything seems to be going right - Chicago weather included.  I could have taken 15 pictures of something I was thankful for each day this week but I'll spare you 3 hours of your time and just give you my highlights!  I hope you'll join myself and my 3 cohosts - Carly at Carly Blogs Here, Mia at Make Me Up Mia and Kristal at The Strong Family - for Thankful Thursday every week!

Thursday, February 13


Sorry for the awkward picture, but Thursday brought a life changing experience for me: I got my eyebrows done!  Why in the world I have thought I could do them myself is beyond me.  I had been totally over plucking and finally decided to let them grow out in 2014 and let a professional take it from there.  Cue Yelp and a brow girl by the name of Emma that others claimed "will make you look like you just had Botox" and I was sold!  If you are in the Chicago area, check out Arch Apothecary - Emma was amazing!

Thankful for my go-to Valentine's Day sweater!

A 12 hour day of work - on a Saturday, no less - required a nice long afternoon break at Starbucks.

Sunday, February 16


Nick had been out of town since Tuesday morning and finally came home Sunday night!  We celebrated by ordering a giant Papa John's Hawaiian pizza.  Yummmm!

Monday, February 17


My dad and step-mom spent Valentine's weekend in Galena, IL so on their way back to Michigan, stopped in Chicago to have lunch with Nick and I.  We ventured out in the midst of a snowstorm to have lunch at Greek Islands and it was well worth it!  After they left, Nick and I spent the rest of the afternoon on the couch with our candles lit, heated blanket going, the Olympics on, oh and doing some work, while it thunder-snowed.

 Our April Florida trip is officially booked!  I'm so ready for some sun and warmer weather!  The countdown is officially on!  :)

Taking pictures of your hand may be just as awkward as taking selfies!  I got my Birchbox this week and it included a bright pink nail polish that changes colors in the sunlight.  I'm loving the hot pink right now while I'm dreaming of Spring!

  4. MAN... that is BRIGHT polish... I LOVE IT! Perfect for Spring (if it ever comes)
    My Saturday involved Starbucks too - the place to go on a Saturday!
    I love when I get my brows done. I can't see up close so I have a hard time plucking them. My face looks so much lighter then my brows are shaped right.

  5. Look at your beautiful face in your selfie!! Oh a trip to Florida...yes please!! Between you and Mia, I've got the itch to head to the beach (actually, when do I NOT have that itch) but our trip isn't planned until August. I'll live vicariously through you until then. :)

  8. I am so thankful my eyebrows are so blonde I don't ever deal with tweezing them, although sometimes Ian will get tweezers and go after my "unibrow" haha! After I moved out of LP they put a Papa John's right off Clark and I was so mad! Hope you're dealing well with mother nature...talk about mood swings!

  13. I never have plucked my own brows, I don't have the patience to but I'm also bad at remembering to go get them done. I have a salon down the street that doesn't break the bank and they do a pretty good job. Did you feel wonderful after it, because I do, its like a new me!

  14. Your eyebrows could not be any more perfect! Love the polish too!

  15. That pizza looks heavenly and I'm not even sure I care for Hawaiian pizza! Definitely craving pizza now! Your brows look awesome! Did they give you eye brow products?? If not brow wiz is definitely worth checking out! I didn't think it was possible to be worth all the hype, but it really was for me!
