I'm Thankful

who is excited to read all kinds of things i'm thankful for?!?!
ha - don't all raise your hand at one time.
so i kinda have a secret.  sometimes i log into friends facebook pages who have given me their password (aka they are the coolest people ever!!) and creep.  it's like i'm a closet creeper.  i love it!
and i love a lot of people's thankful status'.  especially erins.  they get me every time.
so let's pretend like this is FB and let's get started.....
i am thankful each and every day for my children.
stella came as a huge surprise but changed my life for the better.  i am forever grateful for this little girl.
henry stopped me dead in my tracks.  a boy?!  what do i do with boys?  but my oh my i am crazy in love with that kid.  more and more every.single.day!
they are happy and healthy and just plain awesome kids.  man i love them!!

my family.  mom, dad and sisters.
my mom for always being there for me.
my sisters for always being amazing and keeping me laughing.
my dad for being good with my kids.  i wish him and i had a better relationship though...

my friends.
real life ones.  blog ones.  fake ones.  old ones.  new ones.
thank you!!

i'm extremely thank for patience.  it's been a hard one for me to grasp. but it pays off.
i'm so thankful that some things are worth the wait!

i'm thankful for my job.  my gosh i love my job!!

this blog.  you guys, seriously.  this blog has changed my life in so many ways.  meeting new friends.  taking out my frustration.  sharing my life.  and not feeling alone for a single second.  it's a great feeling!!

i am thankful for the small things we take for grated.  a roof over my head, money to pay the bills, clothes to keep me warm, always having food, tv even if it's not cable, etc.

ok now enough with the mushy gushy stuff.
seriously - every.dang.morning.
i'm thankful for Internet - seriously.  on my phone, my ipad, my laptop.
we would be lost without Internet!!
along with Internet i am thankful for FaceTime.  i love FaceTiming my Grandma!!
i am thankful for yard sales.
i am thankful for $1 sweet teas at McDonald's and $1 McChickens
sometimes i call this lunch or dinner.  regardless i am forever thankful.
i am thankful for instagram.
i am thankful for pinterest.
i am thankful for coupons.
i am thankful for coffee.  lawd i'm not pretty without coffee.
i'm also not pretty without lipstick.  i am so thankful for lipstick.
i am thankful for 'boom' and 'lol' - because sometime i just don't know what else to say in a text.
and boy am i thankful for text messaging.  who calls people anymore anyways?  ha.
i am thankful for shower beers.  nothing is more relaxing than a beer in the shower.
as redneck as it sounds - try it!  and you're welcome ;)

but for real.  life can be hard, life has changed a lot lately.
but life isn't that bad.  i am crazy thankful for each and every day and for all that i have.
have a happy thanksgiving!!

log onto other people fb pages hahahah closet fb-er!!

hahah I like the green light one! I say a little thank you when Im running late and go right through several green lights in a row.

And that you FaceTime with your Grandma. haha I thought for sure you were going to say with S&H. I reread it to make sure I was still reading the same line there. Too cute that your Grandma does FaceTime.

Shower beers. hahahah oh this made me laugh. Too too funny!

Hope you have a good Thanksgiving!

I sometimes click over and read (creep) your blog when I visit Kim's (she is so real and down right hilarious) and I want you to know that I think YOU ARE AN AMAZING WOMAN! WEW... it feels good to be out of the closet!!!! You inspire me as a woman and as a mother. I find myself laughing and relating to your stories and your kids are just adorable!!! I don't blog but I just may have to take it up. It sounds like some much needed therapy I could use, lol.

So with that said, I'm thankful for yoga pants that I'm going to need for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow ;-) I'm thankful for my amazing family, especially my beautiful daughter that makes me smile each and every day! I'm thankful for ALL of the people that have come and gone throughout my life. Because of them, I am the person I am today :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!!

Shower beers?!? haha I must try this ASAP! Funny thing is, I just saw something on Pinterest for a koozie that mounts to your wall in the shower to hold your beer -- Christmas gift for Cassie?!?

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving, girlfran!

Katie said...

I'm not such a beer person but once this baby's born, a shower margarita sounds like a great way to relax...hahaha.
