Totally THANKFUL Thursday

I know it’s normally Totally Truthful Thursday, but you know what? I have a lot to be thankful for this week (read: always) – and clearly I’m a sucker for alliteration ;)

  • My husband, duh. He’s the best – seriously. He makes me laugh every single day, he’s smart as all get out, and he can pretty much do anything. I simply adore him.

Yes, he’s building our deck. No, he’s never built one before. Yes, he’s amazing.

  • Genuine friendships - I’m so lucky to have a generous handful of people who I genuinely trust, laugh with, and can simply be myself around.

Only a lucky few can handle this much weird. 

  • Our neighbors - OH MY GOD we have the best neighbors ever. More times that I can count, I’ve said to Cory, Seriously. How did we get this lucky?

aaaaaaaaaaa

Not to mention, our entire neighborhood is amazing. Example: I drive down the street waving to kids…and enjoy it. Who am I?

  • My health - There’s not a day that passes when I don’t thank The Big Guy for my able body and mind.
  • Being DONE with grad school this upcoming Monday.

  • Contacts, tampons, and birth control - because they make my life better.
  • Our DVR - How else would I watch shows that come on after 9 PM?
  • Google Maps and GPS – For without those two inventions, I would most likely be a hermit.
  • My jeans still fitting - because I’ve missed more workouts than I care to admit.
  • For Sweet Frog not being within walking distance of my house - because then I would definitely have to omit the previous thankful statement.

  • Tomorrow being Friday. Enough said.

*Tell me something you’re thankful for! :)

Thanksgiving Came Early

Happy Thanksgiving, my friends! 

I got lucky and was able to celebrate Thanksgiving a day early ;)

For yet another year in a row, my mother-in-law, Joni, hosted a perfectly executed Thanksgiving dinner. Joni is the Queen of Hosting, and I’m always in awe of how she remains so cool, calm and collected. If I had to have a clean house, look presentable, and have seven different dishes ready at the same time, I’d need a Xanax.

I’m also always so impressed by her little touches that make everything so festive.

It was a wonderful night!

So today, as I sit around relaxed and without a plan to call my own, I find myself eternally grateful for the awesome life I have.

I’m crazy about my husband, I adore my amazing family, I have the best friends, and I have my health. Really, there is nothing more I could possibly ask for.

Enjoy your day, folks! I hope it’s filled with love and tons of good food ;)

Let’s chat – Tell me something/someone you’re thankful for today!
