Thankful Thursday {Link up #49}



This week I am Thankful For:


.... my new shoes my friend got me.  She so badly wanted to get me the Disney Princess tennis shoes but they are out of them so she found these. I LOVE THEM. I'm sort of obsessed with grey anyways so these are just AMAZING to me.  I want to keep them clean & never wear them... but then I also want to wear them every day with everything.


Shoes:

... meeting up with my JOY Ladies Bible Study this week.  Loved our conversation & loved seeing these sweet friend's faces.

... having friends to sit next to at the church we've been visiting.  It makes it feel a little bit smaller to be in a huge place having familiar faces around us.

... Enjoying the warm weather over the weekend...

Great weather:

... I won a $100 worth of products from Minted from Lisa's blog over at expandng !  I gotta search through the site put this to good use!!!

... Finding the perfect stamp set that I need for my 2016 Erin Condren planner - ON CLEARANCE!  This was only $6.99.  I'll be putting these stamps to good use next year.

Even a BLOG stamp!
... a sweet husband who goes WAY out of his way to go visit a friend who is in a nursing home/rehab facility while he has been battling months of the effects of a brain tumor.  This man isn't married & doesn't have much family & gets so lonely in this place.  I love that I am married to someone who, even though he is so tired for working all day long, will take the drive & time to go sit with him & check in on how he's doing.  My husband has the sweetest heart there is.

... found the perfect pattern for yarn I've been wanting to use.  I was on the hunt for 2 days looking for a good use of this yellow yarn & after trying 4 different patterns, I wasn't liking any of them - & I'm still learning how my arm works with each craft.  But I ended up finding a pattern & crocheted this cowl in less then 2.5 hours last night watching TV.  I love it!  & I have enough yarn to actually make another one :)  Bonus for someone else! ... but it is amazing how easy it is to find things helpful on the internet.  Thank you Pinterest for the over abundance of knit/crochet free patterns!



... not getting so stressed out about Christmas this year.  Maybe its all the praying about it I've been doing - reading Phil 4:4-9 every morning about anxiety, because I still have tons to do - on top of shooting a wedding this weekend - but for some reason, I'm just more peaceful about it all.  Christmas miracles happen I guess.

Now, if this calm & peace could happen about my dental appointments - that'd be great :)

Tell me something you're THANKFUL for today....

& be sure to come back next week - it's Christmas Eve... 
& a special Thankful Thursday because it's my hubby's birthday!!!
