I don't know if it's the fall weather,
but this gal is feeling extremely thankful today.
And, boy howdy, you're in luck because I'm sharing
with you the random things I've been thankful for lately.
Keep reading because maybe, just maybe, it's you.
I'm a giver.
** Having a filter yesterday. No, seriously, if you know me, you know this is a VERY rare occasion.
** Friends who don't bat an eyelash when I put my foot in my mouth. Again, this sass you are all drawn to backfires on the daily. In the few weeks I've said something so stupid to two of my dearest Tulsa friends (LLA and Suz) and neither batted an eyelash. In fact, I'm sure we'll laugh about them for years. I hope.
** Speaking of friends, I adore the friends I've made online via blogging (The Management, Erin, Melissa, Laura, Michelle, and many more) and surrogacy (Mel, Dannielle, and Kimmy). Love these gals.
** Commercials like this one for the final season of Jersey Shore. I died.
** Not having to ever go to a Justin Bieber or Taylor Swift concert. Ever. (Yes, Ashley W. and Shaylynn, those were for you.)
** Being able to be a local auntie. For almost a year I was a long distance auntie. I rocked the hell out of that, but it doesn't hold a candle to the fun I have in store for being a local auntie. With role models like I grew up with and women like Sarah and Ashley W. leading the way...the fun and laughter is limitless.
** Fall. Football. Weather. Colors. HALLOWEEN! Food. Football. HALLOWEEN! You get the idea.
** Aunt Penny coming to visit in a few weeks! She's my mom's only sister. Really, she's like a carbon copy of my mom, so a visit from her is like a glimpse into having my mom around again. Auntie P is so much fun. I can't wait to take some time off work and craft, laugh, toodle around, laugh, giggle, laugh, visit, laugh, again, you get the idea.
** Random rap lyrics, text from bennet pics, screen shots of random crap, being rapped to in the car....the only one this could go to is Mrs. Ashley Hodges! She is one funny woman. Love her.
** Bill. I mean really, between picking on me, giving me crap, and harassing me, you'd never ever suspect he was a nice person and he'd love you to think that, but I'm here to ruin that image and say he's one of the best friends a gal could have ever wished for. He's thoughtful, kind, generous, a wise ass, funny, and so much more.
** Kleenex. Being so sick, I've gone through so many, and this girl loves her some normal non-lotion non-fancy non-scratchy regular old kleenex.
** My sis. It's been wonderful having her here in town. I've missed that local relationship with her too.
I told you I was feeling thankful!
I could have gone on and on,
but I'll save the others for another day.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend in store.
Go get your thankful on!
