Thankful Thursday

Happy Friday Eve my dears!!  Where has this week gone??  I don't know about y'all, but I am already looking forward to the weekend...this is the first one (and last one) in a long time that we won't be running around like chickens with our heads cut off...(I've always wondered how chickens can run around without heads in the first place?)

Anyway, on a completely different note, today I am helping Crystal Michelle from Crystal Michelle's Mess co-host the first ever "Thankful Thursday Link-Up"!  I just found her blog and am in love with this girl!!  She is gorgeous, down to earth, speaks her mind, and has the sense of humor that I only wish to have!  So when she emailed me and asked if I wanted to do this link-up with her, I jumped all over it!  I mean, who doesn't love a good, easy link-up??  *raising both hands*

The rules are simple...all you have to do is grab the button, paste it into your blog, and then enter your post back on the host's page.  All you have to do is tell about 5 things that you are thankful for right now, (they can be serious, funny or a mix of both) and that's it!  Easy, peasy!  There might even be some prizes involved for the best posts...

Alrighty then...let's get crackin' and see what I am thankful for on this wonderful Thursday!
{One.} I am thankful for the amazing weather we have been having in these parts...the 50+ degree mornings we've been having have made me really believe that Fall is finally here...and with Fall, comes  my morning coffee by the fire.  I love this time of year!
{Two.} Speaking of coffee, I am oh, so thankful for this little gem to pour into my cup every morning...This is my favorite creamer flavor ever and it's such a disappointment that it's only available this time of year.  I may or may not have three extra large bottles in my fridge right now...
{Three.} I am beyond thankful for this man right here.  He is my best friend.  My rock.  My shoulder to cry on.  And I love him beyond comprehension.  I know this may sound cheesy, but I cannot imagine my life without him.  With him traveling as much as he has been these past few weeks, I am really realizing just how fortunate I am to have him working so hard to support our family!
{Four.}  And speaking of my favorite men, I am so thankful for this little man.  He is my little buddy.  We do everything together.  He makes me laugh; he makes me cry.  I never knew I could love a little person so much.  And I am beyond grateful that God put him in my life!
{Five.} And last, but certainly not least, I am thankful for you.  Yes, you read that right...I am thankful for each and everyone of you.  Every single one of you that comes here every day and reads my ramblings holds a special place in my heart.  I am serious when I say that I have made some amazing friends through this blogging process and I couldn't be more grateful.  So thank you.  Form the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Until next time...


  1. FRIEND! So stinking jealous {yet happy for you} over these 50 degree mornings. For the love, that sounds so nice! We haven't dropped below 80 at night in 4 months and it's supposed to 97 degrees today. Ugh!

    And thank you sweet baby Jesus for the sugar free pumpkin spice creamer. I look forward to coffee just a little bit more now every morning!

    As for you and your sweet boys... precious, just precious!

    Happy Thursday to you and thanks so much for giving me a heads up about this great link-up! XO!

  2. Why oh Why can't I like anything pumpkin.... For Real... I try kinda like shrimp, I hate it but every time someone has it I say oh maybe I will like it now.. and nope.. I still hate it hahahaha... I keep thinking my grown up taste buds will kick in one day, I mean they did for beer now if they would just come to Pumpkin & Shrimp.. but not together of course.... Thanks for linking up <3 you're amazing..

    1. Seriously, doll, I used to HATE shrimp with a passion!! Then, like you said, my adult taste buds kicked in and now I love them!!

      As for pumpkin, I don't know what to tell you on that one, besides I'm sorry!! hahaha!! :D

      And thank you for asking me to join you for this!! It is so much fun! And I really think it will start to take off as the word gets around! Everyone needs a little uplifting, positive post every once and awhile!!

  3. I too am having those crisp fall mornings!! Next week our highs dip down into the 70's and I am down right giddy!! Such a great link up for any time of the year! Happy Thursday!

  4. I think I really need to try that creamer. Sounds like I would love that as I pretty much love pumpkin anything!!!

  5. I'm jealous of your cooler mornings! Do you think you could send them my way?! I'm also obsessed with Pumpkin Spice creamer :) Fun fact: I buy a few when they're about to retire for the season so I can have them for longer!
