#ProjectThankful14 ... more looms, giant drinks & a new hip!


“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”

9.11.14 The Loom of all Looms



I am so excited... I am totally getting into this loom thing & got the loom of all looms.
Martha Stewarts loom!
This baby is interchangeable to make different sizes, it has a tighter gauge... you can even WEAVE with it.
I literally just held it & stared like I was holding the best thing ever.
PS... I may or may not have already gone & got another one with a 50% off coupon at Michaels... I want to have extra pegs.. it only makes sense.

 
 
09.12.14 Free Drink... as big as yo' head


I never get a Trenta... unless its free with a reward on my Starbucks card.
& when I get them, I forget how freaking BIG they are.
I seriously drank this for 2 days...


 
09.13.14 Cousin Love

Cousins

Loved so much seeing my cousin & shooting her maternity pics.
It was a beautiful evening... she was gorgeous... & I got to rub all over that belly of hers & let my 2nd cousin know she's already loved.

 
 
9.14.14 New Book



I loved the first book in this series & am so excited to get the next one.
& yes, I do have a Kindle, but I still love holding & having real books sometimes.
Benefits with both.
This book centers around old antique pictures so I really love having the actual book on this one so I can flip back & forth & go to look at the pics over & over.
Can't wait to start reading this one.
My awesome English Teacher friend who knows all about good books told me its better then the first, so I'm even more excited now.

 
 
09.15.14 WINNER!!!
 
 
I won this cute little bag from Mia over at Make Me Up Mia
 who I just think is fantastic ... go check her out...
I was excited when it came in the mail with a cute little note.
Her note did include a PS - give the dogs a hug.
I guess Harvey Dent wanted his hug ASAP because he wouldn't get out of the picture.
We all know Harvey Dent is destructive so I had to let him smell the bag & remind him this is momma's... not a new toy for Harvey :)


 
09.16.14 Panera Chili
 
 
I found this at Sam's Club last time weekend.  I always get a little scared of trying new things, but OH MY WORD... I'm so glad I tried this.
It is DELISH!
It has chickpeas in it & it gives every bite like a little crunch.
I love it.
I want to go back & buy a few of these because you are able to freeze the plastic containers.  Perfect quick dinner for winter nights.
 
09.17.14 Another successful hip
 
 
Here's dad after he got back in bed... from walking... with his new hip.
He's now got 2 new hips... he'll be ready to cut a rug here in a few weeks.
The surgery went perfectly & he should be coming home today.
So thankful for a smooth day.
 
What are you thankful for this week?
