It's OK and Thankful

Thursday, May 24, 2012

I'm doubling up today, because it is OK and I am very thankful!!

I'm linking up with Amber & Mrs. Hargrave! You can get it on the fun, just head over to their blogs to see what you need to do.

... to admit that I get my best sleep when next to the Mr; which means I've been sleeping SOOOO good since last Friday.

... to want a lazy weekend. Traveling over 330 miles every weekend is very tiring.

... that I still get butterflies when I hear my husband coming through the door!

... to reminisce.  

... that I read an entire book in one day, because it was that good. 

... to plan out our weekly dinner meals, but decide to order out one night instead.

... to laugh and enjoy a show like Duck Dynasty. What's not to love? They pray, work hard, play hard and love their family. You don't find shows on TV like that anymore.

... to see some of the 80s fashions coming back, but secretly hope some of them never reappear. 

I'm Thankful — with Mrs. Hargrave

{I'm thankful} we have very supporting family and friends. Our parents both had roles in helping us move, and I have to give a special shout out to Abs... she truly is the bubble wrap queen!!! 

{I'm thankful} and blessed with a husband who knew how important it was for me to make this feel like home and didn't stop helping me until I was happy with the outcome.

{I'm thankful} for our amazing life. Did I picture our life where it is today? No, but I know we are in good hands with the big man upstairs.

{I'm thankful} for blog friends who have become real friends. I love our special bond, and that we share recipes with each other! 

{I'm thankful} for a long, holiday weekend. I'm going to enjoy having the Mr home with me on Monday!

{I'm thankful} for the little things we take for granted every day. 

Have a wonderful Thursday, y'all!
