Thanksgiving & Then Some

Phew, what a week! Between Thanksgiving festivities and Black Friday I was non-stop running around every day! I can’t begin to express how amazing it was to be home and see my family, my dogs, and friends that have gone away for school. While I was only home for one day, it meant the world to me. Look at these cute little faces!

Angel has been getting older- it’s always tough seeing your dogs get old, especially when you remember seeing that little puppy when you were just a little pup yourself! I felt very lucky to spend some time with this incredible girl.

My mom is my biggest inspiration- by far. I love the way she has our house decorated. She makes every corner extra cozy!


She always finds vintage knick-knacks, with earth tones; things like old books and vintage-looking dishes.

If there’s one thing my mother taught me, it was to always have Buddha statues all over! They bring in such a positive energy!

This house makes me feel like a little kid again, so many cute goofy little things that make me smile fill each and every room.

We feasted and laughed and ended our day with embarrassing home videos of me being the goofy little girl I am at heart.


Thursday went by faster than I could imagine- and then I was thrown into a very busy (and very successful) Black Friday! The day was amazing and the incredible team at Woodcliff lake brought so much food- this entire weekend my tummy was a little more than full!


Black Friday is supposed to be the most stressful day of Retail all year round. Yeah, I was very nervous to work. I always work Black Friday but this was my first time working as a Manager, and being in a new store only added to my nervousness. Boy was I wrong- Black Friday was the opposite of stressful, we all had a blast! Customers as well as employees were having fun, playing dress-up, buying gifts, and treating themselves!


I’m cheating a little, this outfit featuring the DYLAN Turtleneck by Free People (It’s literally called the Dylan turtleneck, I was obligated to get it myself), was the day after Black Friday, but I was too busy to snap a photo of Friday’s outfit!!


Bye for now from myself, and some of team 870!
