Please visit as many Thankful Thursday posts as you can & spread some love!

Cami is thankful for SO MUCH...

Being able to talk in 3rd person...ha! Reminds me back in middle school (I think) when kids would be kids and we just learned about talking in 3rd person and everyone would start doing it.

How I'm finally getting used to this new blogger look. (I think!!) I still don't like's definitely going to take getting used to. Sigh. Why do things that are perfectly find have to change?

The Relay for Life event this weekend! So excited. I think it'll be a blast. I've received a handful of donations - thank you to all who have helped raise funds to fight against cancer!

That many of you share in my guilty pleasures! (I still want a brownie, though...I guess leftover birthday cake will have to suffice!)

That there are so many people out there who are jobless and underemployed. Thank you Jesus for me not being in that category! 

Being able to watch a friend's little one grow up...she's about 1.5 years old now and she is just SO precious and beautiful. Poor little one is teething! :(

I was dog sitting (yes...again!) over the weekend on the same street I grew up on. SO WEIRD...but so cool. I took the dog for a walk right by our old's so funny because as a kid, I thought the place was "so big" but it was just because I was so small...ha!

Feeling pretty! You ever have one of those days where you just feel extra pretty?? Well, I am SO thankful for those days...that means my hair cooperates with me. :)

Sweet tea (half sweet, half unsweet) - yum!! They are definitely the little pick me up I've been needing lately...I've been craving sweet like crazy for some reason.

I love being like a little kid & playing in the sand. My sister went on a cruise this past week so I sent her a little message in the sand...heehee :D

Pulling off a surprise birthday party!! As you know, V's bday was last Thursday. I was able to be sneaky, sneaky and completely surprise him!! It made me happy because it made him SO happy. I'm so thankful I was able to pull it off :) It wouldn't have been the same if I planned it and he knew about it...this way was SO much better.

Me & my honey! 

 Cutting the delicious cake!

I definitely had to take over!

The ladies :)

 Happy birthday to my one & only! <3
