It's been a while since I've listed my gratitudes, so I thought it was time I dusted off one of my favorite topics. I'll be honest, I haven't exactly been in the right mindset to look for the positive. It happens. It really is a shame that I can't always pull myself out of it enough to see all of the good, but believe me, my reason is a good one. I'll tell you all about it soon enough.
So anyway, on this gorgrous spring Friday, I am grateful for so many things. Right off the bat, seeing the sunshine is a bonus. I really can't complain about the weather because we've been experiencing spring for about a month now, but we had some stormy weather the past few days. Those gray days were the pits! I know for certain I could never live somewhere with lots of gray days because I would surely be miserable. When the sun came out yesterday afternoon I was instantly in a better mood.
First and foremost, I am grateful for my little family. Yes, my kids bicker more than I'd like, create messes in an instant, and grow up way too fast, but they're all healthy, happy, and seem to have a pretty good head on their shoulders. Is there anything more I could ask more? I think not! (well, maybe some tidy-up abilities might be nice, but I'm not picky)
nachos - ohmygoodness, they're all I want to eat these days. I keep going between Izzo's and Q-doba. I like them loaded with pico de gallo, corn, onions, beans, everything! I think I could eat that for every meal.
my new $20 dresses from Target (which are now on sale for $16). They're so comfortable and perfect to throw on with a denim jacket and sandals. They also hide the midsection fluff quite nicely.
Real Housewives of New York are returning next week!! I've missed them so! Just seeing the previous season re-runs are making me happy. I'm also happy that Richard won Top Chef. Yes, I'm a Bravo junkie.
The PRC Shotgun House Tour - tomorrow Matt and I are heading down to New Orleans to go on this tour. I'm so excited! Have I ever mentioned how much I love house tours? As a bonus, I get to see my friend Valorie's house on tour and hopefully meet up with Mitchell. Remember when I met them for lunch last spring?
Last but not least, I am so grateful for finishing up loose ends! I have a couple of projects in the works that have been hanging over my head. Getting them finished feels like a weight has been lifted - a perfect start to the weekend.
Well, now I'm off to see my boy's first baseball game, then it's off to softball practicefor the girl. It's a thrill a minute around here, I tell ya! Happy Weekend, Friends!!
