This week I am thankful for:
{The numbers go with my One Thousand Gifts Journal / so just ignore}

51 / Our gift card from Julie.  
She knew that this is where Ricky go every Wednesday for our lunch date so she set us up for our last few dates.  Always nice!


52 / Got cashew out of my gum.
Ewwww - right?  But I got a piece so tucked up in my gum, I thought I was going to have to do an ER dental trip at 11pm at night. It was HORRIBLE pain.  After a dozen tooth picks & 2 dozen mouth swishes with salt water, I finally got it out. Whew... that was miserable.

55 / Sparkling Water closer to home.
Our little local grocery store finally FINALLY started carrying sparkling water! YAHOOO!

63 / Great sale at Just Fab.  
Anyone else ever use Just Fab ... I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop on it because I am loving it.  I know you have to make sure to 'skip' every month or you get charged a fee, but you use that fee for shopping so its not like you really lose.  But I have gotten some boots on there for $14.95 that I love & then they had a year end sale. I got 3 things for $5.00 each - FIVE DOLLARS. I thought, even if they're junk, its just $15.00 - & let me tell you - I love every piece. I got a sweater, a dress & a jacket. & its a NICE JACKET. Like heavy.  I went back to get another one & they were sold out. Drats. But I'm pleasantly surprised so far. I'm keeping my eye out for more $5.00 deals!!!

71 / Sold hat as soon as posted on Instagram.  
I had posted a picture of a hat I just finished up on Instagram - as I usually do. I typically post something there when I finish a project & then do a bulk picture day to put them up on Etsy. Well, it made my day when a follower messaged me & said they wanted it.  Saved me time to take 'professional pics' - had it in the mail the next day for her.


I actually made up a coupon code for a discount if anyone ever sees anything on Instagram they want when I post it. It saves me time from taking pictures so I'll pass my time savings to you. If you ever see a item on IG that you like, message me & I'll send you the code!

77 / A slow schedule lately.
After photo season & the holidays, I have been so thankful for my empty calendar lately.  Well - we all know my calendar is NEVER empty - but slower, I should say.  I really am reminded how good it is for the soul to slow down.  I'm going to be doing more of that this year. I'm not over booking my photo sessions - I'm not scheduling a lot of things to do unless its for fun, with friends, enjoyment. Life is too short to be stressed & running with my head cut off.

78 / Deer antlers.
Harvey Dent just NEEDS distraction & things to occupy him & these things are the best in keeping him busy at night when I'm knitting. Otherwise, he sits & stares at me to play with him or entertain him myself.  #spoileddog

Entertain me or you get THE STARE
Hey - let me know if you cant see this picture.. I'm still trying something new with my photos & last time I tried - it didnt work well

80 / My car is still chugging along. 
Chugging is the key word. Its still stuttering & sputtering... but its going.  I'll take it.

What good things have happened in your life this week?

  1. That's a really cute hat. I've been so lazy lately and haven't been crocheting or knitting. Gotta get busy.

  2. Picture is all good on my end :)
    I was wrestling with food-in-teeth issues this past week, too. Ugh. It's the worst- it affects your whole head!
    Of course your stuff sells like hotcakes! It's adorable AND warm!

  3. I love sparkling water! The older I get the more I realize that I am happiest when life is slowest. I like to have a couple things on the calendar but not to the point it's overflowing.

  4. What does Harvey do with the antlers? Yup, I see the pic!

  5. I can see the adorable picture. :)

    I will have to check out Just Fab... I am intrigued.

    I feel you so much on needing to slow down and schedule less. I am always stressed and running, running, running!

    Love that fabulous hat. No wonder it sold so fast!

  6. I have never used Just Fab or heard of it. I will check it out. Love getting gift cards. I can see the picture. Very adorable!!!

  7. Okay, so I'm still not quite awake yet. I read your first thing as a gift candle and though why is she showing a picture of Subway? Gift CARD, Tanya! :D The hat is so cute and fun that I can see what it sold immediately. I've seen the ads for Just Fab but never looked into it. I had a bad shopping habit that I broke a few years ago so I'm really cautious when it comes to shopping but it sounds like they have some good stuff, which is good to know because their prices are, well, fabulous. I had to do it. :D

  8. I will have to check out Just Fab! Nice to know it has quality merchandise. Congrats on selling that cute hat - speaking of quality merchandise!! I am thankful today for sick leave because I am still home fighting a nasty cold.

  9. What a thoughtful gift card and so awesome to sell something before you officially listed it-- the hat looks awesome!

  10. So nice about the gift cards!
    Love those hats, super cute!!!

  11. Oh goodness, you and your poor glad you got it out. That hat is really cute! Glad you sold it fast!

  12. That is awesome that you sold a hat as soon as you posted!!! I have never bought anything from just fab before but I'm intrigued.

  13. Those deals from Just Fab are awesome! So is the Subway giftcard--giftcards to places you go normally are really nice!

  14. I looove your puppy! He's so cute! And congrats on selling the hat ASAP! So great.

  15. Sparkling water is what got me to finally stop drinking so many sodas and drinking water. I don't know if it's the bubbles or carbonation, but it works for me so much better than flat, still water.
    Love that hat! Doesn't surprise me that it sold so quickly.

  16. Dent is so cute!! Goodness! Oh my, you have the worst luck with teeth/eye/etc. stuff recently! I hope you get a reprieve now!!! You deserve it! What a great quote, and so sweet your friend got you a gift card. ;) XO - Alexandra
