Talky Talk Tuesday: Makeup Free Edition- Thanksgiving.

In honor of truth, I decided to do today’s video first thing in the morning, so beware the makeup-less face! (This one’s for you Christina.) Anyway, if you’re up for a scary movie-watch it. Then, please, leave  a comment with what you’re thankful for this year. It should would make my day brighter if I knew about your lovely lives. And as you can tell by my grey, wrinkly skin, I could use a bright day!

    I am grateful for a home, family and love in my life. I am also thankful for a flexible job where I work for myself and can devote time to my loved ones as needed. I think make-up free Tuesday is a great idea!

      Thanks. Not sure I’ll be able to stay make-up free every week though! I’m not that brave.;) Have a great Thanksgiving with your very lucky family.

    Love these Talky Talk Tuesday videos! Love the garage scene and the sorting of the vegetables at such an early hour – you go Cristie! Today I am thankful for the Gaupps and their comfy house that I get to call home for the next couple months before I move back to PA. Currently sitting on Tecia’s super comfy couch that I am forbidden to sleep on (even though I sneak down here in the wee hours of the morning for a quick snooze. Yes, it’s that comfy). Thankful for this couch as well =)

    Wow, I am thankful for so many things – too many to list them all. But the top few are: I am thankful that my oldest son is home from college and that I get the opportunity to have all five kiddos under one roof for 9 whole days. I am thankful for my husband who never ceases to amaze me with his love and humor. I am thankful for this precious little miracle growing inside of me. And finally, I am thankful for my incredible “village” of friends, family and neighbors who surround me and my “team” with so much love and support. My heart is so full!

      You’re the best Sharon! Your kids are so lucky to have you-someone in their corner who is such a huge fan. Moms can learn a lot from you.

    I am thankful for a roof over my head and new friends I have made. I am thankful for a running car and the opportunity to do more with my kids these days.

    I am thankful that I am surrounded by wonderful family and friends. I am thankful for my wonderful, beautiful, silly, fun loving, “totally rocking” daughter. Never in a million years did I think I could love someone as much as I love her and just when I think I couldn’t love her anymore I do. The BEST two years of my life. I am thankful for mine and my family and friend’s health. I am thankful I have a roof over my head and heat and light! I have so much to be thankful for I won’t bore you with anymore, but I have a truly blessed life and I am thankful for every aspect of it. Happy Thanksgiving! XOXO

      Cathy, your enthusiasm and unbridled maternal joy makes me want to be a better mom. You teach me how to enjoy my kids every time you post here. Please keep doing it! Happy Thanksgiving!

        And to think until we decided to try and have a baby I NEVER wanted to have kids… Thankfully, I changed my mind. BEST DECISION EVER! Happy Thanksgiving!

    Besides being thankful for this lovely makeup free video – I am thankful that I get to be surrounded by my children this week. They are off from school and we were in desperate need of some fun, schedule free time together 😉

      Yay! I have to say in spite of the circumstances, I loved my two weeks with my kiddoes too. (Well, alright I loved about 10 days of it.) There is something special about kids home with nothing in particular to do. Enjoy your week!
