Thankful Thursday {Link Up #22}

Thankful Thursday
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
~Melody Beattie

This week I am thankful for:

... my 21 Day Fix is going well. I'm not starving, I'm not miserable.  Let me take that back... I'm a little miserable. My BODY is miserable. The work outs are tough, but I know its gotta help with results.  So a thumbs up from me on this.

... I HAVE WALLS!!!!!! ... I guess not really walls like real walls, but I'll take it. Its been 8 months since we moved to our new office & I've been sitting in the open for everyone to see.  It's been quite miserable.  But I walked in the door on Monday to see I have a little bit of privacy.  Granted, everyone can still hear every word I say, but at least I can make faces at my desk & no one will see.

... Our yard still looking so beautiful. I love watering the flowers every night & seeing all the beauty around my house.

... To be able to witness the sweet 20 year vow renewal over the weekend.

... Found a new purse!  I am so weird about purses... picky, as Ricky says I am about most things.  But I wanted a cross body purse.  I have spend the last year with a handbag type purse so was ready to give my arms a break.  I also need a big purse, but not too big. I'm like the Goldilocks of purses.  I was thrilled when I found one that I LOVE.  The color is perfect for Spring/Summer.  I just always have good luck with purses at JCPenny's for some reason.

... Harvey Dent did OK during his grooming this past week.  Poor thing was so nervous when the person took him away from us.  I asked how he did when we picked him up & she said he did great, listened really well at commands they told him, but was afraid of the hair dryer.  Yep... he hates when I blow dry my hair. Probably doesn't help that I always blow it on him because I think its funny when he runs away from it.

... for this little girl.  Our Grandbuddy.  She turns 1 in 11 days. OH MY GOSH.  She's gotten pretty good at saying NA NA NA NA NA ... which of course, we all know is her way of saying, "I love Nanny"

... my twin nieces graduated elementary school.  & they got a few awards at their ceremony.  Go girls!!!  & of course, their aunt had to scream for them in the crowd when they got their certificate.  Sophia told me afterwards, "I heard you"... I told her, "That was kinda the point" :) #embarassingaunt


... for friends in a crowd!  I got to the graduation & all the seats were full around my family so I was like, "OK, I guess I'll sit by myself somewhere"... & look up & see hands waving.  Our sweet neighbor & her precious momma were at the top of the bleachers.  I made my way up to them & had the best time during the ceremony gabbing with them.  So much better then standing in the back by myself.

... seen a few new faces link up last week. I'm always thankful for anyone that takes the time to join in with me. THANK YOU!



  1. I can't wait to see your before and after from the 21 day fix - i've heard it's amazing!! I love the color of your new purse girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Love your new purse! I'm pretty picky about them, too - I usually have my best luck at TJ Maxx/Marshalls but I'm going to check out JC Penney next time!

  3. Good for you on the 21 day fix. Hope you get the results you are looking for. That purse is adorable. I love the color!!

    Isn't it fun to embarrass your nieces and nephews! haha

  4. for whatever reason, my dog immediately grabs a toy for me to play with him when he hears a hairdryer! it's hilarious, most of the time.

  5. yay for walls! at least it's something! and too funny about Harvey Dent. Why do we always torment our dogs when they are scared of something?? love the new purse!
