-V's cousin being in town from Massachusetts & them being able to bond together

-going to a delicious "fancy" Italian restaurant on Saturday night...oh so delicious!! I had spinach ravioli!

-although my nails are no longer long (only 5 are!) they were at one point...ALL of them. It lasted about a month. They looked so beautiful. Not sure what happened to caused them to all break.

-having this beautiful walk to work from my house to the juice bar:

-the weather being kind of perfect on Sunday! Being able to take a nap here...

  1. I'm also thankful that I was the first to link-up! That never happens! lol

    I'm so excited for all the amazing things happening in your life. You are truly blessed.

    Oh and I would love for you to share some of those healthy recipes. They sound delish!

  2. LOL about the zombie attacks ;) I just got a new case last week and it really does feel like a new phone.

  3. You always have a wonderful list to be thankful for! I'm jealous of your juice bar...I'm not sure that we have one like that here. And that cauliflower pasta looks amazing!

  4. How sweet! Love notes are always awesome aren't they ;) So glad you got that time with V's family and I love the cauliflower pasta. Could you share that recipe or is it top secret ;)? I would love to know that as I am trying to cut carbs out(health reasons) and we love spaghetti and alfredo etc here. Have a great weekend and I must visit the juice bar!!!

  5. Hi Cami! Thanks so much for visiting at The Latest Find and for your comment! =) Hmmm..Christian fiction romance that I would recommend... Stuck in the Middle by Virginia Smith, A Very Special Delivery by Linda Goodnight, and Beach Dreams by Trish Perry. Those are all really good! Saw that you're reading Heaven is For Real! Such a neat book, it was neat to read about everything the boy described, especially about his grandfather. My husband basically hasn't stopped talking about the "zombie attack", I have to remind him that zombies aren't real! =) Hope you're having a good week, thanks again for stopping by!

  6. I thought about reading Heaven is for Real but wondered if it'd be too hokey. Your review makes me want to check it out now. Thanks Cami. LOL about that new iphone case. I get that it feels almost like having a new phone....Have a great day out there....

  7. i think i read Heaven is For Real in one day. it is such an incredible book. i dont see how anyone could read it and not believe in God or Heaven!

  8. Gotta love compliments about your cooking - and lovely weather to go walking !
    Thanks for the link up - have the best Friday ever.

  9. i am a bit jealous of that walk to work :)

  10. i'm a little jealous that you can walk to work and that that is your view along the way. i just love the water. congrats on your newspaper article. very exciting! keep being thankful and keep one eye open for zombie attacks. you can't be too careful! happy thursday.

  11. Dude, I'm SO jealous of your commute! :)

    And I'm really curious about that cauliflower pasta - was it really good?!

    Hope you have a LOVELY day! :)
