let us give thanks

hey hey hey! it’s me, mayra of life is BANANAS. morgan so kindly asked me to take over her blog guest post while she’s away on vacay. of course, i agreed. lady is AWESOME! little history for ya, morgan was one of my very first followers turned bloggy bud. she is amazingly cool, always one for a good time and a beer drinker, like myself. i’m pretty sure we’d be great friends in real life. dontchathink morgan? i’ll just answer yes for her…

anywho, while she's off soaking up the dominican sun and having herself a cocktail or four, i’m in control (insert evil laugh here) but do not fear, i have quite the positive post for ya’ll. you see, it’s thanksgiving week and we bloggers have a lot to be thankful for…

photoshop.
i don’t know about you but i'll be the first to admit photoshop and i, we're best friends. it’s true, we hold hands, we have dance parties, we frolick in fields of gold. and it is big thanks to my BFF (photoshop) that one can go from eh, average to holy mother of fineassness, break me off a piece of that!!!

weekends.
if your blog has grown in popularity you know the importance of weekends. (a) you get a break from blogging and no one worries. you miss a weekday and your inbox is bombarded with emails asking where you went, if you're coming back and when! (b) weekends provide for easy monday posts in the form of weekend updates. who really wants to think much on mondays, ya know?

fashion bloggers.
those fabulous women who post their daily outfits are not only pleasing to the eyes but pleasing to our lives. you don’t know how many times i’ve stared at my closet wandering what on earth to wear, only to visit a couple fashion blogs and get instant inspiration.

linkbacks.
and speaking of fashion, you ever see someone on the street wearing something oh so fabulous you have to have it? in the real world, you’ll either have to search high and low or balls up and ask the random where she got her fab ensemble. in the blog world, it’s called linkbacks. you like it, you click it and oila, it can be yours.

comments.
life without comments…drab and boring. life with comments…g double-o d good. and i’m not talking lame-o comments like “nice pics” or “funny post”...i’m talking about those thoughtful comments that show interest in the amazingness that is YOU.

bloggy friendships.
last but not least, the friendships made in this crazy blog world have been indescribable. i can’t begin to tell you how many gals i've met that think like me and/or share the same experiences as me. who knew that by joining this little community, you could meet some of the most coolest chicks ever.

there you have it, folks. i say we're a lucky bunch, us bloggers. having said that...



have yourself a fantastic turkey day!

xoxo

What a great guest post, Mayra! One of the best I've read so far. Everyone's been posting about what they're thankful for, but only you would think to post the blogger's Thanksgiving list!

And I am thankful for having stumbled upon your blog and meeting you. (and you too, Morgan!).
