#ProjectThankful14 ... a winner (Twice), new gadgets & date day

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.”
Meister Eckhart
08.28.14 Click Magazine
I love bloggy contests... especially when I win!
& especially when it has to do with photography!
Look at this!!!
I won a subscription from the awesome Aimee from This Darling Day
A photographer's magazine... I didn't even know it existed.
I will be renewing this subscription 
08.29.14 Knitting Left handed
It took me a little bit of brain strain
... but I actually got it...
& now, I have to practice & become the knitting pro I once was.
I'm just thankful to have yarn in my hands again
08.30.14 Date Day
I loved that Ricky was like, "Get dressed - we're going out for the afternoon"
& we went & had a great lunch & then went & seen Guardians of the Galaxy in 3D...
with the theater being basically empty, Ricky told me he rented it just for me & he just let the other family come in out of the kindness of his heart.
What a guy :)
It was a great day with my hubby.
08.31.14 A NEW PHONE!!!!
Hello love. I'm so excited. I have the new Samsung Galaxy S5
... a real smart phone...
with a 15 megapixel camera!!!
Now I'm praying over it that it lasts me 2 years.
09.01.14 Veggetti!!!!!
Here it is... in my hands... all mine!!
With my hubs shaking his finger at me.
Ricky bought me 3 zucchini & I'll be twisting away & making some noodles tonight.
I'll let you know how it goes.
09.02.14 A Lazy/Busy Day
Taking an extra day off work to make it a 4 day weekend was the best thing ever.
I loved being lazy in the sense I never brushed my hair, I never changed out of my running shorts & stained up t-shirt, but I got lots done. Editing & laundry.
I want to be a stay at home wife.
I need to talk to the hubs about this.
... listen closely... you may hear his laughter wherever you may be....
09.03.14 Free Stickers
Another bloggy contest that I won!!!!!
It was a package to win free stickers
... which may sound stupid...
but first of all, I love stickers.  Seriously. I have a bundle of Belle stickers & Disney Princess that I will put on cards.
But you can customize these stickers from this place & I won 2 sheets.
I put them to good use & made some for my photography.
I'm excited just to add them on cards & envelopes.
They just made a new customer with giving me free stickers.
What are you thankful for this week?


  1. Congrats on winning the magazine subscription. Looks like something you will really enjoy.

    Knitting left handed? You must be awesome! I can barely do it right handed. haha

    I've been wanting to see that movie. Don't know if I'll make it or not. My movie partner has moved to Florida, so if I see it, it will have to be alone. :(

    I think the Samsung Galaxy S5 looks really cool. However, hubby and I got the iPhone back in February (my first smart phone) and I totally love it. Is this your first smart phone?

    Never heard of a veggetti.

    I only worked 4 hours on that Tuesday, so I got a 3 1/2 day vacay and that wasn't bad! haha Do you love your knitting loom as much as I love mine? I love the yarn you have on it right now. You'll have to show us that completed project.

    Free stickers (actually free most anything) is really cool!

    Have a great day!

  2. I have never heard of that magazine, either, but you can bet I'll be looking into later today. I love learning more about taking pictures! Huge congrats on your big wins...lucky you! I always love how your zest for life shows through all of your pictures...your smile is contagious! Keep it up!

  3. Oh...I almost forgot to tell you! Guess who tweeted me the other day? Jenna Bush Hager!!! I was so pumped, I can't even tell you! She just seems like the sweetest soul and I know we could easily become besties! :)

  4. Congratulations on winning the contests, it's always so fun to win things :) And yay for a new phone, that's always fun too!

  5. I am SO glad you love Click! I get so excited when I find it in my mailbox! :) Can't wait to hear how the Veggetti works! Oh those stickers are the cutest! Congrats on being a double winner! ;-)

  6. Yay for a new phone and for a veggetti!! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.. I've been dying to buy one but my husband also thinks it's a ridiculous purchase! I'll just have to buy it next time I'm out without him :)

  7. Congratulations on winning the contest! I've won a few...awesome feeling.

    Left handed knitting? I can't even do it right handed. Funny aunt learned to knit by watching her grandmother. She was sitting across from her so she learned to mirror her and knits left handed even though she isn't left handed.

    Sounds like a wonderful afternoon with the hubs. :)

    You will love your phone. I have the S4 and have loved it so much better than the people I know with iPhones like theirs.

    What all do you knit on the looms? My mom started me knitting chemo caps on them, but I have some different shapes and pattern books....haven't gotten that ambitious yet, though.

    Stickers are fun. Enjoy them!

  8. You cause me to smile....
    and wish I was your neighbor.....


  9. Loving all the winnings that you've gotten and the vegetti is most definitely on my list of items to purchase!

  10. I love getting a new phone!! I'm waiting for the new iPhone to come out this month!!!!
