As in Gratitude!
What did you think I meant? ;)

Decided to link up today with Steph @ Insert Classy Here
for Gratitude w/Steph :)

Insert Classy Here - Gratitude

What I am grateful for...

Life & Good Health
After watching a good friend lay her (way too young) sister to rest last week,
it makes you realize how much we take our good health for granted.

My Job
While sometimes it can truly be a pain in the butt,
at least I have a good job, my hours aren't crazy,
and I have quite a bit of freedom.

My Husband
While I hate to admit it some days,
I know I wouldn't be where I am today without him.
It is been a crazy ride over the last 12 years,
but I wouldn't want to be on that ride with anyone else!
Oh, and he is an AMAZING dad too! :)

That little guy is truly the greatest thing in my entire life!
He may frustrate me to tears sometimes,
but he is the most fun kid EVER! :)
That laugh of his is one of the best sounds in the world!

My Family
There are too many of them to list,
but I am very thankful they are all in my life and helped
shape me into who I am today :)

Enough of the serious stuff!
Here are few more things I am grateful for,
but I am sure I could live without as well :)

Barre/Pilates Classes
You allow me to get out of the house for 2 hours a week,
have some adult only time,
and get a good workout in!
Thank you :)

Pretty Little Liars
You are one of only 2 shows I am actually watching this summer!
(That is a record low for me!)
Thank you for being an escape during my work week.

You truly are a place of joy for me!
I can walk through your store without buying a thing,
and still feel better when I leave :)
It is something about how clean everything always is,
and how the products are lined up so perfectly that just puts me at ease.

X-tremely V
While I know I could live life without having my own blog,
it has helped me grow in ways I never would've imagined.
Just getting things out,
or reading that others are going through similar things has
really helped me in every day life.
It is great to know I have some wonderful blogger friends out there too!

Stop and think...what are you grateful for today?

Until next time...

  1. I'm grateful for PLL too, even if I'm too old for it. I do with the episodes were a little more action packed though, it's a bit slow right now.

    1. PLL is weird like that :( One episode has so much going on, and then next it is kind of boring. In my mind I will never be too old for those kind of shows ;)

  2. I love that you included Target. Just walking around that store makes me happy (but my bank account not so happy). This was a fantastic list of serious and not so serious. Thanks for linking up!

    1. Thanks! Before I had my son I could spend a good hour just walking around looking at things at Target, but thankfully never buying anything!

  3. I am WAY too old for PLL but I love it. I got obsessed last year when I was recovering from surgery and got caught up on Netflix. Great list!

    1. I am too old for it too, but I don't care :) Teeny bopper shows keep us young and relieve my stress!
