Follow Friday and TGIF! (11-25-11)

Happy Friday, everyone! For you Americans, I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with lots of turkey, pumpkin pie, and family and friends to share it with. And hopefully, you have started on your Christmas shopping and didn't have to camp out all day yesterday to get a great deal at some store (some people here had been camping outside of Best Buy for DAYS! Seriously, people?!?) I had a great holiday and am super excited that it's now the official start of the Christmas season. I have been listening to Christmas music for a few weeks now and am almost done with my shopping, but now that it's the official holiday season, it just makes me even more excited! Now, onto the Friday fun ...

Parajunkee asks:

It's Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. so we want to know what you are thankful for - blogging related of course!

I'm thankful that I finally had the courage to make this blog! This is something far outside my comfort zone, so giving myself that push I needed to do it is something that I am thankful for. I'm also thankful for the people who have stuck with my blog from the beginning, even when I had no idea what I was doing (actually, I'm still clueless!)

GReads asks:

When You're Not Reading: What occupies your time 
when your nose isn't stuck in a book?

When I'm not reading, I'm working. I wish that was a joke, but it's not. I work between 50-55 hours a week, so that's what I do with the majority of my time. I really enjoy baking too, so I like to experiment and try out new recipes. And sadly, that's my life. Haha.

So, what are you thankful for this year? And what do you do when you aren't reading? Let me know and have a happy holiday weekend!

PS - if you are going out this weekend to shop/eat, be nice to those of us who are working. Believe me, my idea of fun isn't serving hundreds of people when I could still be hanging out with my family, but we have to be there. Just show us a little compassion since many of us are working very long hours this weekend. Thank you!


  1. i hope you have TONS of compassionate customers! people are just very rude this time of year (well always) but I bet you know what I mean.

    I like to crochet in my free time!

  3. Very good advice. I am not working today but I spent many years working as a waitress during college, a retail sales manager later, and a nurse more recently. Treat others as you would want to be treated.
