Thankful Thursday, 3.27.14

My blogging career has had a rough patch. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I am blogging for multiple companies, multiple times during the week. So when/if I do have some free time, I browse Pinterest and relax instead of writing about ME.

I will try to change that because I really do miss blogging. I miss my interactions with you love ladies too!!

So - I am going to try to make a "comeback" with a Thankful Thursday post!

There are so many things to be thankful for. Lately I have been extra moody (V can attest to that!) and I'm not sure why. I think this list will help me focus on how great life really is and how the little things should not and do not matter.

I am thankful for...

My handsome & wonderful husband! We will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary this Sunday. My, oh my how this past year flew by. I cannot believe that just one year ago, I was marrying my best friend and spending time with loved ones & friends! It was such a memorable day that I always joke around that I want us to have another wedding. ;)

My fun pups! Even though they do drive me crazy and little Chance likes to wake up an hour before I need to be up and keep me up (probably the reason for a lot of my moodiness!) - I love him dearly. Chewy & Chance have a BLAST together. & Chance now has a very loving and fun home.

I cannot WAIT for our little cruise getaway to the Bahamas. I need some quality time with my hubby and some sun in my life!! 

I helped host/plan my cousin's bridal shower this past weekend. Her wedding is April 26 - coming up so soon! I am blessed enough to be a bridesmaid. It's so special to me that I get to be apart of her big day in such a special way.

Speaking of the bridal shower - I had such a fun time making all of the decorations! I LOVE crafting. I went with a mustache theme...mustache straws, toothpicks, banners, etc! The favors were candy shaped mustaches.

I have been doing SO good with working out 5 days a week. I am not sure if others can see a difference but I certainly feel a difference and that's all that matters! I feel like I am more toned & have some muscle instead of being "skin & bones" like people say all of the time. (Which isn't exactly the nicest thing to tell someone - by the way!!)

Coconut oil - I am so thankful for! I tried the whole "oil pulling" thing for a little while. It didn't last very long - it is time consuming. I have been using it on my scalp, though, and it feels wonderful. I have scalp is alleviating a lot of the itchiness.

I am thankful that I am getting off a tad bit early today so I can get my hair cut! It hasn't been cut since September and it is in DIRE need of a trim. I am debating throwing in some highlights...I told myself I wanted to stop dying my hair - it is now pretty much all one color...but I do love how my hair looks with them! Decisions, decisions.

What are YOU thankful for this week?


  1. Those bridal shower decorations and cupcake cake are seriously way too cute! It looks like such a fun shower-- so sweet of you to plan it for your cousin! I love using coconut oil in my hair-- I'm not gutsy enough to try the oil pulling method though!

  2. I love all the mustaches!
    Your chevron dress is so cute!
    I've been wanting to try coconut oil for a while. Everyone is talking about it. So far, all I've done is eat coconut ice cream! lol

  4. Man, I feel your moodiness. It must be in the air or something because I've been moody too! Looks like a great shower!! Thanks for linking up with us! :)

  5. Love the pups, so cute! I'm loving coconut oil these days too!

  7. I can't believe you're married a year already! Happy anniversary. Enjoy your cruise! We're heading out on a cruise in a little under 3 weeks and I can't wait!! Thanks for linking up. Always glad to have you.

  8. Happy (early) anniversary!! We celebrated 8 months today and I totally agree - the time has been flying by! I've been thinking of trying oil pulling for a while now.. I just don't know if I can do it for 20 minutes like you're supposed to, that seems like such a long time! Thanks for linking up with us today :)

  9. Happy anniversary! I didn't know you got another pup, he is cute!!

  10. Yay for 5 workout days a week, great job!!

  11. I would recommend my new dress to someone looking for a fun, fitted special occasion outfit! The seller was also very polite and responsive to emails.
