Thankful Thursday {Link up #43} ... lots of pictures

This week I am Thankful For:

.... going on a walk with a friend.   It was wonderful just talking to her & enjoying the weather.   My poor knee is a mess & it was good to just get in a good long walk & have good laughs distracting me from the pain.

... the gorgeous Indiana Summer weather we got to have before the cold set in.


... new blankets for our bed.

... my new running shoes!  I wasn't thrilled with the color - I love my BRIGHT in your FACE shoes, but these feel like I'm walking on clouds so I'll trade in the brightness for the comfort.

...celebrating 20 years of marriage with my groom

Where does the time go?

... waking up to white roses on the kitchen counter.  Ricky sent me 2 dozen white roses the day before we got married & every year for our anniversary since, he gets me white roses.  I love the romantic sentiment of it all.

... sleeping in.  It's wonderful not waking up to an alarm clock.

....a great lunch out for our anniversary.  We hit Outback when no one else was there.  It was so nice having the place to ourselves.  It even didn't embarrass Ricky when I wanted to take a picture since no one was around.  It ended up keeping us full all day long where we didn't want any dinner so we're going for our anniversary dinner later in the week.  Drag this baby out a few days! :)

20 yrs:

.... Carrot Cake on our anniversary.  It was what our wedding cake was :) .... & yes, I had a corner of the carrot cake but yes, I did include it in my calories for the day :) ... I kept it in check.

Carrot cake:

... all the sweet messages, texts & comment from friends congratulating us for our anniversary.  That's so kind when people take time from their lives.

... Cards that are spot on.  The best part, Ricky just read the front of the card & then said, "HIGH FIVE" ... I just laughed because I knew what the inside said... Do I know my husband or what?


... going to the movies & having it all to ourselves.  It's like Ricky planned the whole day where he rented the places for us - first the restaurant & then the movies. That's the advantage of taking off on a weekday for our big day.

Ricky ended up laying across of my seats & we got to talk to each other throughout the movie
I want to be able to talk out loud at all my movies now

... The BEST MOVIE!  Oh my gosh - Pan is so good.  I dont know why it hasn't gotten more attention or why I saw that the ratings are bad. I LOVED it. If you love the story of Peter Pan, you'd love this movie.

20 years:
