instaFriday - thankfulness

I'm so blessed.

You ever have those moments where you just have to step back and take everything in and you realize how blessed you are and thankful you should be?

That's me. I'm so thankful.

I'm thankful for instant strawberries and cream oatmeal. So delicious and sweet and easy to make.

I'm thankful for my roommate's rabbit, Helen...even though her eyes look scarily red in the flash of the camera. She's sweet and changing my mind about...varmints.

I'm thankful for weekend trips to Charlotte and I'm thankful when I get back home, safe and sound.

I'm thankful that I got to see the great spring "snowstorm" of Bradford Pear tree petals in my parents' yard. I'm also thankful for Patty Riot. (my car)

I'm thankful for the Hibachi place I discovered that is right down the street from me. I'm thankful that they have unlimited coupons on the back of Harris Teeter grocery receipts and I'm thankful that their food is so delicious and so cheap. I'm also thankful that I'll actually eat these vegetables.

I'm thankful for open tulips...a sign of spring and a sign of a promise of great things to come.

What are YOU thankful for today?


  1. Your Top 10 post the other day made me stop and think about how thankful I am for my husband.

    I am also thankful for little things like:
    Dried cherries (so yummy)
    Story Hour at the library
    Family Game Night and Family Movie Night

    Last, but not least, I'm thankful for the blogs I read. There are days (like yesterday) when reading and commenting on blogs is the only adult interaction I get for most of the day.
    I had intended to take the kids to the park yesterday (it's so pretty out) but my little girl had a fever :(

  2. Let's go to the hibachi place next time I come visit!

    2. Yes, we will! And it's so cheap!

  3. I just heard about a great resale store in Wilmington called Clothes Mentor. Have you been?
    They will pay cash up front for your gently used clothes! And, of course, you can shop there too. It sounds awesome and I wish there was one in Charlotte.

    1. I HAVE heard of it before...I just haven't been. It's part of the Plato's Closet chain just for women and not...coeds. ;) I'll let you know how it goes when I check it out. It's on the other side of town from me.

  4. Found your blog via InstaFriday. I’m your newest GFC follower!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
