My babies were still there!!!! .... Thankful Thursday #91

Image result for thankful quotes
This week I am Thankful For:
{The numbers go with my One Thousand Gifts Journal/just ignore them}

852 / Ricky made it to lunch. If you've been around here for a bit, you know the hubs & I meet every Wednesday for lunch.  Ever since my work moved, it's just become a habit, so we've been doing it for 2 years now.  This past week, Ricky called me while I was on my way there & said he wasn't going to be able to make it. Something at work was holding him up.  I was on my way anyways & the people that own that Subway know us there every week so I just went on my own... & was so excited when I looked up & Ricky ended up making it.

853 / Survived traffic.  Oh goodness. It took me 1 hour 30 minutes to get to work. Traffic has been a NIGHTMARE lately. total nightmare.  I've heard it took some people longer than 2 hours.  That I survived without puking was a miracle.

854 / Fall!!! We made it to the BEST SEASON EVER!!!

856 / Starbucks deals.  Every time they have specials on drinks, I'll take advantage of it.  & when they had Pumpkin Spice Lattes & Salted Caramel Fraps for $3.00 - I'm there.  So was Ricky.

858 / Amazon Prime Music.  I've just recently been taking advantage of my Amazon Prime membership by using Amazon Music.  I've been bluetooth-ing the Christian music channel to speakers & letting it play all day long on the weekends.  I may need to cancel my Spotify membership.


 859 / Natural Bliss coffee creamer. My all time favorite creamer & love they have Pumpkin Spice for all things fall & all things pumpkin!!!


861 / Fall Nail Polish.  I love when the darker reds & browns are the 'in' colors to wear. Especially because I wear them all season long anyways. At least now, I feel like I'm up to date on something.

863 / Time at home.  I talked about this Monday but it ended up being a blessing that everything canceled & I got to spend time at home.  Harvey Dent was happy about it too

This was literally taken in the morning (note the beautiful sun rise glow #goldenhour) & Harvey
was so excited we were home & Ricky had to tell him it wasn't Play Time.

865 / MSM Girls.  I had one of my MSM girls tell me about a concert she was singing in for school. I went to go see her & support her... & then loved it when I walked in & saw THREE other girls from our small group singing in the concert as well!  Love to support these young girls in all they do!

See that huge group of ladies? I know for a fact in that crowd are some AMAZING AWESOME young ladies. Came out to cheer on my @msm_indiana girls. Great job @ella_lavigne3. @christina.smith.03 Josie & Kendall. Y'all impress me so much! ❤ #hhms #msmfamily:

866 / Windows open. I love fresh air in a house so much!!!

868 / Dogs still at home..... you ready for this because I'm STILL shaking about it.  So, our back yard, we have a garage that you can get in with a side door from our back yard.  For some reason, we have NO IDEA how this happened, I came home from work & go out to throw the frisbee for Harvey after work & look up & see that door is open into the garage ... AND THE GARAGE DOOR IS OPEN AS WELL!!!... So basically, my dogs could have just walked through it & gotten away from us forever.  I literally want to puke at the idea.  We honestly have no idea how the big garage door was even open.  We hardly use that garage - it just holds Ricky truck he only drives maybe once a month (his play truck) & lawn mowers.  & the door to the back yard is so hard to open too, we cant imagine how it happened.  The whole thing is so bizarre.  We have no idea how long it was open - was it like that all day long?  All that time our dogs could have gotten away from us????? ... I cried & shook for an hour just thinking of the possibility.  Ricky keeps saying, "No harm, no foul"... but my brain dont work like that. I have been checking our security cameras on the hour every hour now to see if the dogs are OK & still there.  THANK YOU JESUS my dogs all stayed in the back yard & in the house instead of venturing away.

869 / Everything not stolen.  I went to go walking at the park the other day. I took my ipod & the battery was dead so I left it in the car.  That was in the front seat, my wallet was under the seat & there was also a bag from Old Navy of clothes I needed to take back.  Not to mention a back hatchback full of photo gear.  I set my alarm on my car & took off... & then came back & saw I LEFT THE BACK WINDOW DOWN!!!!!!!! OH MY GOSH. But everything was as it was in the same place. WHEW!!!!
Can I say it again? THANK YOU JESUS!!!!

What's Up Wednesday

Image result for mix match momma whats up wednesdsay

That time again... the last Wednesday of the month
Time to catch up on all things happening life ....

What we're eating this week....

Sweet and spicy Thai pineapple fried rice, a simple vegetarian dinner! -


 My blog buddy Nadine turned me onto this Pineapple Fried Rice
... making it tonight actually! Cant wait to try it!

What I'm reminiscing about....
Thinking about our Sydney girl this week...
This past Saturday was 2 years she left us to go to the Rainbow Bridge.
We still talk about her so much & miss her every day.
Our house still seems like its missing something - especially with her & Buffy gone.
I can't believe its been 2 years for her & 3 for Buffy. Wow...

What I'm loving....

Thrive Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner
I got one of these in my Ipsy bags a few months ago
... I dont think I can ever use another eye liner now.
I only used to use liquid eye liner & always loved how thick a line it could produce.
But it always wore off by the end of the day
This stuff? it stays in place ALL.DAY.LONG!!!
& I'm a big eye rubber - so doubly impressive.
I'm all a rave about this stuff now.

What we've been up to...
All the same stuff... I honestly can't think of anything new

What I'm dreading...
Changing over my closet for Fall & Winter.
It's always such a dreaded task.
I swear, I work up a sweat from trying on & taking off hundreds of things.

Image result for messy closet gif
Then I can keep ALL my clothes out!!!

What I'm working on...

I'm on a mission to organize my library.
Right now, the room is holding all sorts of STUFF
... like my finished knitting projects & random photo equipment
& even a big box of snacks from Sam's Club.
I need to clean the room out so I can organize my book shelves.

How AMAZINGGGGGG is this???

What I'm excited about....
Image result for ironman louisville
I'm working at the Ironman competition in 2 weeks. SO EXCITED!
This year, I get to work the finish line where I'll be a "Catcher"
... literally helping an individual who crosses the finish line make his way through the shoot to get their shirt/hat, get their time chip taken off, get their picture taken & the main thing?
Encourage them & give them praise for a job well done

What I'm watching/reading....

Image result for This is Us

Who isn't watching this? ... so good!
2 episodes in & both endings on each? LOVE IT!!!
Cant wait for more.

Image result for survivor generation x vs millennials cast
I also never tire of Survivor.  Isn't it on like Season 137 now? Something like that.
I always say I'm going to try out for this... but then know I'd quit after a few hours in the cold rain.

What I'm listening to....

Image result for poddy break tim hawkins

Tim Hawkins is HILARIOUS
... if you've never heard of his comedy, check him out.
So I'm loving I found his podcast.
I may have actually snorted from laughing listening to some of them

What I'm wearing....

It's finally cooling down... so I can finally wear the sweatshirt I got 2 months ago

Image result for disney store beauty and the beast shirts
Isn't it the best thing EVER?!?!!?!?!

What I'm doing this weekend....

Its a busy weekend with my MOMMA'S BIRTHDAY!!!!
& a Senior portrait session schedule
...AND... I'm also taking the twins to the movies & do their birthday shopping.

Can I say how upset I already am about this movie?
This character isn't supposed to have THIS peculiar talent.
This is going to be an "angry reader fit throwing" watching the movie

What I'm looking forward to next month....

Enough said!

What is your favorite fall recipe?

Apple Pops!!!

Sliced Caramel Apple Pops:

I love this idea.
You take an apple & slice is down long ways making thick chunks -
put a stick in the base & lay on wax paper & drizzle those babies with whatever you want!
Chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate
caramel, butterscotch
sprinkles, m&m's, chocolate chips. chopped up oreos,
chopped up any kind of candy bar.
It's all on an apple - makes it healthy, right?

Give me a thumb hole & inspirational wording & I'm sold!!

Most people are looking at all the latest Fall outfits - boots, sweaters, purses....

I'm all about looking at new workout clothes.

Image result for i own more workout clothes

I honestly have more workout clothes than I do anything else. It's true. 
I just bought up a clean basket full of clothes & sorting through where they needed to go.  90% of them were running shorts & tanks & workout tees... & sports bras.  I love me some good workout clothes.

Its a new season & I'm looking at what is the latest gear out there... & I'm not someone who cares to spend like $99.00 for a sports bra. I know some people dont blink an eye at that. I just cant. Nope.  I'm all about good quality workout stuff for a good deal. It's how I roll.
So here's some of the ones that have drawn my eye

Old Navy 

Go-Dry Long Sleeve Funnel Neck Tunic for Women

product photo

I really love this take on a sweatshirt.
I'm always someone who is cold before a work out & then get cold chills right after when its cold outside so I love a cute warm snuggly thing to always wear.
I'm always up for a cute cowl neck too.
This comes in a really pretty dark pink (Jam is the color name they use)

Go-Dry Mid-Rise Printed Compression Leggings for Women

product photo

I always speak praises of Old Navy's leggings.  
They really hold up for me & are super comfy.
Not to mention, they wash up really well & can withstand a ton of workouts & laundering.
I love this print too. Just a little over the top camo kind of look.
They also have these in a bright blue look... also super cute!

Go-Dry Performance Muscle Tank for Women

product photo

Call me a sucker, but you show me a good word inspiration shirt & I'll usually buy it
... every time...
& I love the cuts on some of the Old Navy tanks. They really flatter the shoulders.


C9 Champion® Women's Must Have Performance Legging

These totally wouldn't be leggings to wear when it gets REALLY cold out with the mesh areas on the legs, but perfect for the indoor treadmill runs while its frosty outside.
But probably nice during the fall season where its still cool but gets really warm once you start moving & get through that first mile.
 & this is probably the only way I'm revealing skin in a flirty little way - when its covered with mesh to disguise the cellulite!  #truth

Women's Embrace Fleece Crew Color Blocked Sweatshirt - C9 Champion®

This is just perfect for Fall workouts!
& looks so comfy & cozy
Perfect with those black leggings but also great with jeans for the weekend


Women's Jockey Sport Deco Capri Workout Leggings

These make me think of a robot. 
But they also make me think of SLEEKNESS!
You totally know those lines going up & down will make your legs look longer & thinner!!

Women's PL Movement by Pink Lotus Love Graphic Dolman Tee

Women's PL Movement by Pink Lotus Love Graphic Dolman Tee

I really love the sleeves on this - a little higher than 3/4 but longer than short sleeves. 
& still looks light & airy.
& how do you not love a shirt that screams LOVE all over it?

Women's Tek Gear® Graphic Workout Tee

This is on clearance right now at Kohls for $8.00 - oh snap!!! What a deal!
But not only do I love a shirt with good wording, 
but give me a long sleeve with thumb holes & even better!!!
