Thankful Thursday {Link up #57}

This week I am Thankful For:

84 / the new soup recipe I tried.  It was delicious! & I'm not great at making soup, but this was easy & yummy! I'm excited to have this for cold winter days

**  / The perfect shot.  I literally just threw the frisbee & turned my phone on & clicked the button - didn't try to get anything special - totally didn't plan on the lighting - didn't even think I'd gotten Harvey grabbing the frisbee... & then I saw my phone & saw this picture & about freaked out.  Ricky wants to have it blown up.

85 / All the holiday candy is GONE from the house. FINALLY!  It was laying around in dishes since November... tempting me... calling my name.  & now, its all gone.  Maybe the number on the scale will move faster now.

87 / 1099's & filing done at work for year.  I have 3 companies I deal with... & to get everything boxed up for year end & get certain tax work & paper work out by January 31st - whew - it can be exhausting. But its done!  Another year behind me.

91 / Getting to spend some time with our friends & having our Christmas together.

92 / New Bible Journal goodies!  Chasity gave me my birthday gift & I was giddy happy at the new stuff that is going to be decorating my Bible Journal ALL UP!  My mind is already reeling on how to use these stencils & the metallic pens!!!

94 / Our new Bible Study kicked off. I'm so excited for this one. I haven't done a Kelly Minter study in a long time but know how amazing of a teacher she is.

103 / Speaking of Kelly Minter - She responded to a tweet I put up.  That always makes my day!

93 / Warm weather to take Zoe outside & get some of her hair shaved off.

96 / Found a running tech shirt on clearance for $7.00 SCORE!

99 / Harvey Dent snuggles.  He is such a BIG BABY ... & I honestly wouldn't have it any other way.

Every night, he either crawls up in my lap or Ricky's lap & just will lay & put his head on your chest or shoulder & sleep

100 / Covering that gray!  Man, its popping out faster then I can keep up with it anymore.

102 / Our storms we were expecting with the warm weather that has been on us, didn't come in as strong as they thought.  So glad.  70 degrees in February ain't right.  I'm glad tornadoes & damaging winds stayed away.

*** / Bruno's skin is still flaky & itchy, but its healing up.... slowly.... but not getting worse.  I heard it can take awhile to clear up a staph infection.  Let me tell you though - you ain't ever felt how long 5 minutes is until you keep a shampooed lathered up dog standing in a tub, wet, waiting for it to sit on his skin for 5 minutes.  OH MY GOSH!!!  But he's such a good boy....


I'm so excited that I'm well over 100 Gratitude things on my list for the year already!! 
Well onto my way of reaching One-Thousand Things!
