I am very thankful for my family. Without them, I would not be the person that I am today. I am grateful for all they have done for me, and for being there for me when I need them. I couldn't ask for a better family. Even with all of our weird quirks, we somehow make it work.
I am thankful for Steve. I am glad that after all this time, we are finally together, and that we work as a couple. I'm looking forward to many more years of happiness together.
I am thankful for my friends. Even though most of us are over 2300 miles apart, we still talk regularly and I still feel very close to them and appreciate them all.
I am thankful to have a job during a time when so many are without. I hope that things pick up in our economy soon.
Those are the things I am most thankful for, but I am also thankful for the little things: a roof over my head, food to eat, good books, happy little birds singing, and the little comforts in life.
Some of my favorite pieces are:
This pendant, “Does He Love Me” at the low price of $19.
These ultra-girly rose cabochon hair pins for $6.50.
This cool Ganesha cameo ring for only $9.00.

73. "Three Bedrooms, One Corpse" by Charlaine Harris 250 pages
74. "Club Dead" by Charlaine Harris 258 pages
75. "Snuff" by Chuck Palahniuk 197 pages
I only got through four books this month because I've been working a lot. I have been buzzing through the Sookie Stackhouse books. I've been watching True Blood at Steve's mom's house when I can. We finally got our own cable hooked up, so I've started DVRing it. It is a lot racier than the books, but I still like watching it.
I'm currently reading Twilight. I can't wait for the movie to come out in two weeks.
The first item was contributed by .Hoyden Designs. It’s a whimsical hand painted pendant. I love the colors. Check out her shop. She has very reasonable prizes and lovely artwork.
Next is a hemp necklace from Love Peace And Dye. It’s not really my style, but I have a friend that it would be perfect for. She also makes neat hippie clothes and organic cat nip toys.
Third is this gorgeous handmade yellow purse made by Me Plus Molly. All of her bags are ultra feminine. She also makes cute little sachets.
Next is a gift certificate for handmade dog treats by Unique Treat Dog Bones. I don’t have a dog, so I gave the certificate to my boyfriend’s mom for her dog.
The prize donated by Joanna Goldman Designs is 5 super cute pins. Her shop also features postcards and scrabble tile pendants.
Weird Bug Lady contributed this adorable bumble bee bag. Her shop features all kinds of fun bug items.
Unique Xpression these great earrings. I love the color. They go perfectly with several of my outfits. The shop is also selling some cool handmade Christmas ornaments.
Alica offered a gift certificate to her shop. I used it to get these great earrings. They are so lovely. She has tons of great designs in her shop and at reasonable prices. Check out her shop.
She also threw in these earrings, flower hair pins and these polka dot hair pins.
Thank you again Alica for hosting the contest and thank you to all the donors.
