Let’s Give Thanks, Shall We?

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 10.07.28 AMLast week I had a bit of a throwback moment where I got to color in a printed out piece of fruit and write what I’m thankful for inside of it … yes like we once did in preschool. Oddly enough it was insanely cathartic.

While I can’t supply you with printed out pieces of fruit due to the fact that I’m just not that tech savvy, I would like to bore you to death and share a few things that I’m thankful for since I’m feeling extra EXTRA thankful this year. No clue why, I just am. 

But don’t let my lack of tech knowledge stop you from getting creative and sharing what you’re thankful for, though. Put it out into the universe. Shout it from the social rooftops. Or just tell me, because I’m nosey and want to know, dammit. 

So with all of that being said, wishing all of my fantastic readers a very happy and carbolicious Thanksgiving.

1. Life Sucking In A Strapless Bra: if strapless bras weren’t the worst thing on the planet, I wouldn’t have so much joy in my life right now


2. My family: I mean … duh … 

3. My work family: they are awesome and I’m so lucky to be apart of such a supportive and caring bunch of weirdos.

4. My cats: I just couldn’t imagine my life without them. OMG am I crying?!

5. My friends: you know who you are, and as much as I want to go old school “AOL profile” and list the select few of you that I adore, I’m an adult and that is weird. So you know who you are and all I can say is I can’t live … if livin’ is without you.


6. Carbs and wine: Let’s make out later, kay?


7. My career: this past year, especially through all the bullshit and really tough ups and downs, at this moment I can’t help but say “pinch me.” I’m so blessed for all of my opportunities and the people who have helped me get to where I am today. For real … this one may make me shed a tear. 


8. My mom: I know, I know, I already said family, but I’m especially obsessed with my mother. She’s way more stylish than I will ever be and is pretty much the best human I know, inside and out. 

<This is the picture I would post of her if I knew she wouldn’t cut me>

9. My health: because I would feel like an asshole if I didn’t say that.

10. Tina Fey: … because she’s my spirit animal and mentor, except she doesn’t know it or know me. But it’s cool, Tina, we’ll catch up soon. You have my number, right? Cool? No? You don’t want it … aye yes. Right.

Public Service Announcement: Don’t be a fucking idiot and drink and drive tonight. In fact stay home. It’s the amateur hour of drinking. So unless you want some poor bastard who never ever drinks, but decided to get his swerve on and down some kamikaze’s to end up vomiting all over you, I say stay home. 

It’s Never Too Late …

 … to throw up ya thanks!

I was traveling for work over Thanksgiving … therefore I was unable to write a dedicated post to celebrate or have Thanksgiving dinner with my family. So tonight my dear readers … I shall have faux-Thanksgiving dinner AND share my somewhat outdated thoughts on Thanksgiving with you … ahem.

I have a lot to be thankful for this year … and quite frankly I won’t bore you with the list because let’s be honest, no one enjoys reading/hearing people use “what I’m thankful for” as an excuse to brag about their “fab” lives. I’m on to you people.

What I AM most thankful for right now is the fact that I get to nurture, love, expand and respond to all the glory that is Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra. It’s my special little guy. I love in the beginning of the year my goal was to at least get 50 readers a day and now have sometimes over 300. I know for you big time bad ass blog writers that is chump change, but for me it makes me so happy that I end up doing the Carlton dance from Fresh Prince of Bel Air. And I love that when I write a piece, even if I think it is shittastic, you guys still leave me really loving, funny and intriguing comments that make me glow.

Honestly, the concept of “motherhood” never sounded appealing to me. I never really felt like I had a “Mom” bone in my body. But working hard and getting to see Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra grow for the past (almost) two years and continue to grow is more satisfying that I could have ever imagined. So it makes me think … could I one day be a mother … …. ….


One thing at a time people … for the love of Jesus. So from all of us here at Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra … and by everyone I mean yours truly, I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! And know that I’m very thankful for ever single one of my bad ass readers!

And remember … it is all about the things in life that make you glow!

My Thankfulness Runneth Over

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fantastic readers. I have to say, besides my lovely family and friends that I am lucky enough to have in my life, I would say the next thing I am most thankful for would be this blog and the fantastic response I have been getting from all of you.

To get super sappy for a moment (I know, I know, I promise this will only take a second), this blog has been something I have wanted to do for years and years and years. And finally to make my vision a reality and have the opportunity to nurture it and watch it grow over these past few moments has been so fulfilling, overwhelming, emotional and so beyond my wildest dreams and expectations that I literally don’t even have a word for it … therefore I will call the whole experience SCRUMTRILSCENT!

Whew, I told you that blast of emotion would only take a second. Any who, to all of you who read along, comment, ‘LIKE’ me on Facebook, tell your friends and fam to read the Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra gospel, I just wanted to say how you guys rock beyond belief.


In other news, here is what my day will consist of: Shower, dress extremely casual, figure out the appropriate time to have my first glass of wine, start noshing, hang out with the fam, “cook,” aka try to have my mom teach me how to cook from me watching her from the kitchen table, eat some more, continue drinking, have a proper Thanksgiving dinner with my fam, drown in a food comma on my couch, watch a Very Gaga Thanksgiving (so pumped) and probably fall asleep … if all goes according to plan.

Things I will not be doing: Taking advantage of door busted deals at 12 a.m. … more to come on that later though.

Have a very happy, safe, fulfilling, joyous, drunken, food coma worthy Thanksgiving from Life Sucks In A Strapless Bra! And feel free to comment on what you find yourself being the most thankful for (no judgement if it is fashion related, aka if you scored a piece of Versace for H&M … brag away.)
