This week I am Thankful For:
(The number go with my One Thousand Gifts Journal... in other words, ignore them)
439 / Meter filled up. I still meet The Hubs every Wednesday for lunch so its an adventure downtown where meter parking is a usual thing. I was so happy to get out of my car & pull out my change purse when I saw the meter was full for the amount of time I needed for lunch! Fun surprise! (I actually put in some more change when I left for the next person too)
|I need to make one of these for a parking meter :)|
441 / Making it through with the dizzies. This vertigo has been challenging lately. It's hard enough some days to get through doing ordinary stuff, like moving my head up & down from a computer to looking at a paper on my desk. So working out has been even more challenging when you do up & down motions like burpees or laying on your back for chest flies. But I'm making it through.
442 / Cheap finger nail polish. I can't help it, every time I have to run into Walgreens, I have to buy some of the Sinful Color nail polish. I mean, for $1.99 how do you not try out something new & fun? I've bought a few that the color is horrible, but I dont feel like I'm loosing anything for that price. Heck, my Starbucks drinks are more than double that. I've also found some GREAT colors that I love. & honestly, with a good top coat, this cheap polish lasts as long as some of my more expensive ones.
443 / 100 Calorie Pistachio snacks. I love a good 100 calorie snack & especially when nuts are involved. I think it makes it seem like there's more there than there really is because of all the time to crack shells. But I love having these handy for a snack if I need one.
447 / Photo Session reschedule. I had 2 photo sessions planned for Saturday & it would have stressed me to the max. & then it rained all Saturday morning. Luckily, my first session told me she could reschedule for Sunday. It made my day so much easier & the weather worked out even better for her on Sunday. I love flexible people.
449 / The Count of Monte Crisco. I watched it twice Saturday. I forgot how much I love this movie. It's so good - watch it if you never have seen it. I need to read the book & see how that goes since books are usually better than the movie. Ricky asked me who was in it - I told him, Jesus & Superman. It's true. That's the dude that played Jesus in The Passion & that young kiddo in the back? That's Henry Cavill, the latest Superman, when he's basically a baby.
450 / 50th Anniversary / It was such a wonderful event that I got to capture. The cutest thing - I asked both the Bride & Groom individually what their favorite memory of their wedding was. Do you know they BOTH told me it was a memory about their honeymoon. One was about the traveling to it & the other was laughing because he said they were both so sunburned, they couldn't even touch each other. How funny is that! ... but I loved that their favorite memory of their wedding day wasn't actually anything to do with the wedding - it was about the 2 of them starting life together. That's what the focus should be on. People get so wrapped up in the actual wedding. Take note brides - who cares if it rains or your hair is a mess or the flowers aren't like you wanted. Its about being a husband & wife.
451 / Kids with a heart for God. Sunday was the last day for the 8th graders to be in the middle school ministry program, so they led the service. A few of them got up & gave a thought & some scripture. It was so inspiring. Truly. I love seeing the next generation with a heart for God & not afraid to proclaim it loudly!
453 / Phone call from Grand #1. Isaac is apparently already at the age where he digs phones & making phones calls & chatting. The funniest part of him was trying to explain to me that he was calling from their home phone. & then went on to explain that it was still wireless but it was connected to his home. Kids today live in a world where it is totally normal & expected to have phones with you wherever you go. I really am grandmother status.
455 / Massive Edit session. Sunday night, I was on FIY-AH! I got 85 pictures edited in just 2 hours time. I love when editing goes fast.
456 / Beauty & the Beast Mania!!!!! / So yes, the trailer of the movie came out Monday (I'M DYYYYYIIINNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG) - but what I loved more than anything is all the people who sent it to me, or messaged me or emailed me or got in contact with me somehow someway to let me know it was out. People that know my
457 / Our Grand #2 has graduated from kindergarten. Yahoo! Onto Elementary school for him! Someone just said earlier this week that little caps & gowns are the cutest thing - I wholeheartedly agree
460 / Target $5 tee sale. With none of my clothes fitting me anymore, I am in DESPERATE need for tees. I went online & ordered a few to get some things I can wear for the summer without looking like I'm wearing a tent. It's so nice to go online too so you don't have to deal with the hassle of hunting for your size & all the folding & unfolding. Click & at my door step in 2 days.
So what good things have been happening in your life this week?
