I didn’t do any shopping today but in a way I did have a black Friday.. I developed a killer migraine after lunch so I spent the rest of the day in a completely dark room. Our new blackout curtains have already proven so useful in the couple weeks we’ve had them, but today especially I was grateful that I could blackout the room and sleep away most of the pain. The pain is still lingering, but it’s not as bad as it was earlier. Thankfully, I already had most of this post drafted so I’ve just got to polish it up and then I can head back to bed.
Here’s what I’m digging this week:
1. Sweet potato casserole! My mom-in-law’s Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole is to die for – I look forward to it all year long, and I was not disappointed yesterday. I’m looking forward to snacking on the leftovers over the weekend!
2. You have probably already seen OK Go’s new music video, but if not – prepare to have your mind blown. These guys are unbelievably creative!
3. If you’re looking for a way to make the Thanksgiving spirit last throughout the weekend instead of immediately switching gears because of Black Friday, here are 10 Steps for Living in a State of Thankfulness. (You might recognize Victoria/Justice Pirate from her frequent commenting on this blog – she is one of the people I’ve gotten to know a little through this blog and online community that I was talking about in item 1 of yesterday’s post.. I so admire her straightforwardness, vulnerability, and idealism!).
4. This Dementia love story from Humans of New York both broke my heart and mended something small in my heart, too. What a beautiful example of true love. I cry every time I read it. (click here if the photos aren’t showing up for you below)
[edit: added 15 minutes after publishing] 5. GILMORE GIRLS ON NETFLIX! Oh my goodness, how did I forget to add A Year in the Life to this list? I was able to watch the first two episodes this morning before my migraine hit me, and I’m really excited to finish out the series (probably tomorrow haha). I haven’t actually seen all the episodes of the TV show, but I’ve seen enough to get a lot of the callbacks, and I enjoy the characters so it’s been fun 🙂
