This week I cleaned my apartment, tried an at-home waxing kit (which was a semi-success), got creeped out by an Elf on a Shelf, found the perfect red lip color for my skin tone and got myself hooked on the Hazelnut Iced Coffee from Chick-fil-a. The flavor's not on the menu, but if you ask for it, they'll hook it up.

That's about it. That's all I've been up to, which is why this space has been dry denna' mug all week. Before the month is over, I'm hoping to get to a Christmas production of some kind, see some lights around town, make some s'mores, take a trip to the spa and catch up on The Blacklist. I'm desperately searching for the first three episodes of season two online.

... And here are some (two) things I'm thankful for because they have made me smile lately:

- Big, sleepy dogs that don't move out of your way, even when they're blocking your path.
- Yankee Candle coupons that are also valid on their BOGO discounts. Deals on deals on deals.
