Apples, Pumpkins, Cookies, & More

For the past few years, My family and I have gone out for Thanksgiving Dinner.
We have dinner at  The Bristol Lounge. It was amazing as always.
I thought it would be fun to share pictures of the desserts. 
There were so many and they all were soo good.

She was not part of the desserts but she wanted her picture taken. 

How amazing does that all look? My only
complaint is that my pictures do not do it justice.
It is so hard to take a good picture of food.
Trust me, these desserts were all fantastic.

What is your favorite dessert??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

I came across this quote from Oprah recently 
and it really stuck with me. I truly appreciate everything I have
 and realize just how blessed I really am. For someone is always 
going to have more than me and someone is always going 
to have less than me.  I'm focusing on what I have,
not on what I don't have.

I'm grateful to you, my blog reader!!
 It really it amazes how many wonderful people take 
the time out of their day to read this little blog. 
Thank you for reading.

Happy Thanksgiving 

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving
 filled with lots of happiness and lots of yummie food. 

What are you grateful for this year?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Outfits for Thanksgiving

Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite outfits,
they would be perfect for Thanksgiving.

 Nothing too tight or restricting, need all the extra room.






I'm all about looking cute and comfortable.
 We are having Thanksgiving Dinner at 
The BristolWhat I enjoy most about going out is
 that I do not need to do anything, I just need to show up
 No cleaning involved!!  I do need to dress
up a bit.  Any one of these outfits would be perfect, 
yes you can also wear jeans! Although, 
personally, I don't think jeans are that comfy.

What are you wearing for Thanksgiving??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Friday Favorites

Is November flying by or is it just me??
I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week.
Time needs to slow down.

Here is what I'm loving this week.

Scars To Your Beautiful by Alessia Cara 

Love love this song!! 
I have been playing it non-stop.

Big Little Lies by Laine Moriarty

I am half way through this book and
have really enjoyed it. I have 
no idea how it is going to end
and I cannot wait to find out how it does.

Halo Top Birthday Cake Ice Cream

Have you tried this new ice cream??
It is so yummie!!
Also, it is low in calories, sugar and 
high in protein. It is like guilt-free
ice cream and it does taste 
just like birthday cake.
Halo Top

The Crown on Netflix

I am OBSESSED with this show.
It is sooo freaking good!
If you love royalty and Great Britain, 
you need to see this show!!
It's so fantastic!!


That wraps up what I'm loving this week.
I'm going to start my Christmas shopping
this weekend, I'm hoping I can get it all done.
What high expectations I have! Haha.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!

At the end of June, I purchased a FitBit Flex.
Everyone told me to go with the large wrist band because you
don't want it to stick to your wrist, you want it to move around.
Now, I always felt that the plastic wristband wasn't 
very secure. As a result, I was always checking my wrist. 
 I did notice the wrist band was getting big for my wrist and
I was going to replace it.

So, what happens? It fell off my wrist!! 
The last sync was at 2:00pm. Between 2:00 and 3:00pm,
I lost it. I did the locate thingy. It could read it which meant I wasn't too far from it.
 I retraced all my steps. However, a short time later, it couldn't locate it.
Basically, that meant someone stepped on it or it was hit by a car. 

I cried (real tears) when I realized it was gone.Yes, that was a bit dramatic
 but I loved that little thing. I was addicted to getting 10K steps in, every single day.
Heck, I would even walk around my house to hit my goals. 

 A lost FitBit is not covered by warranty.
However, I did reach out to them to see if
there was anything they could do.

Turns out, I had a faulty wristband. What does that mean?? 
FitBit send me a replacement one, FREE OF CHARGE!

Can you believe that?? I was so freaking excited.
Fitbit was so helpful and so kind. Truly great customer service.

I got my new Fitbit and it was like being reunited with an old friend.
 Oh how I love this little thing.

Now, I will be extra careful with it.

I was so thrilled with the service I received, I had to do a post about it.
This post is in no way sponsored. No one asked me to write this, I was not
 compensated for this post.I'm writing this because I truly was blown away 
by the service I received from Fitbit.

You always hear about how bad companies are,
 you don't really hear about good companies. 
There are still good companies in the world.

If you are debating about getting a Fitbit, get one.
You will love it. Heck, even JenniSixx has one 
and loves it. 

Thank you Fitbit!!!

Are there any companies that have impressed you
with their service?? Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Words of Wisdom

Lately, it seems that everyone I speak to is depressed about something.
I know this time of year you see a big increase with SAD-Seasonal Affective Disorder.
So for today,I thought I would share some words of wisdom.










How powerful is that last quote??
It really spoke to me when I read it.

Usually, I'm the negative nelly but lately,
I have found myself to be the positive one,
always looking at the glass half full.
To be honest, I do find that happiness
is really a state of mind. You have to choose
to be happy. If you have been feeling sad or depressed,
please know that you are not alone. I hope this post
was able to bring a smile to your face.

Do you have any words of wisdom to share??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Sephora Gift Sets

This past weekend was the Sephora VIB Rouge sale.  Of course, I had to
go to the store and check it out. I had stocked up the last time so I only thought 
I would need a few things. But then I realized that they had all the holiday 
gift sets which I love. They are a great way to try new products.

Here are the sets that I picked up.

Ready, Set, Glow ! by Tarte

Balanced to Pore-Fection by Boscia

Sugar Lip Power Couple by Fresh

Style Edit Set by Ouai

Merry Mini Must-Haves Blowout by DryBar

Bow N Arrow Set- Kat Von D

Yeah, so, I went a tad overboard. I'm sorry, I just couldn't help myself.
I think I need an invention!! No wonder I'm a VIB Rouge.
But I did get 20% off my whole purchase!!
That is how I justify it.
Yes, I need help.

Are you a fan of gift sets??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie
