Thankful Thursday, 11.8.12


It's the tough times that remind you (or at least remind me!) how wonderful and special my life every single moment is a beautiful moment that needs to be appreciated and enjoyed.

A young man (only 23) that I used to work with (he recently switched companies) passed away last weekend from a motorcycle accident. Only 23. Saddens me so much. He was so young - had so much to learn, see, enjoy. Despite the tragedy, I am thankful that he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior, though. 

I am thankful that when our AC decided to quit on us during the week, I work for an air conditioning company where the technicians are pretty great - one of them was able to walk me through what to do to fix it!

I am thankful that my back and neck have been feeling great - I hadn't worked out in three weeks! I worked out for the first time on Tuesday night and boy did it feel SO good!

I'm SO thankful that we finally found a wedding photographer both V & I like and feel comfortable with. I guess now it's time to start practicing my smile in the mirror...engagement photos next Wednesday!

I'm thankful for cheating and having a slice of (vegetable) pizza for lunch during the delicious. Usually I'm not a fan of pizza, but when it's made right, I'm down!

I'm thankful that I'll have the day before Thanksgiving off all the way until that Sunday! I haven't had that many days off in a row in years! I am psyched I get to spend all of that time with my family.

I'm thankful I started watching "Once Upon a Time" on Netflix! Totally my new "addiction!"

I'm thankful I live in a super small town that hosts fun events like the Bed Race! V was apart of it and his team took second place...woohoo! Such a fun event. Does your town have events like that?

I'm thankful for finding the most amazing smelling candle EVER. It's from Bath & Body Works. The scent is "White Barn, Nutmeg and Spice." I am so excited to snag a big 3 wick one - the smell is heavenly!

I'm thankful for "cold" weather - cold to Florida. It means I can dress cute and comfy and I can bust out my scarves! 

What is it that is making YOU thankful this week?

  4. It's so crazy that where you're at you need AC and where we're at we need heat! :) I love that scarf of you!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend...and Yay for having off in a couple weeks - you deserve it!
