Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday


It is almost the weekend again!  Not sure what we're going to do yet though.  There's a park literally at the end of our street and around the corner.  So, if the weather holds up we might venture to check it out.  Notice anything different?  Well for starters the Thankful Thursday logo is different.  And I also got rid of the Blogger navigation bar that's usually at the top of every page.

There are more changes to come as I learn how to redesign my blog.  That brings me to the first thing that I am thankful for this week-DIY blog tutorials.  It's a blessing to have other bloggers and graphic designers out there who don't mind sharing a few of their tricks.  Sure it would be easier to hire a blog designer to revamp, but then I wouldn't be learning anything.  And if anything went wrong with the design I'd have to be dependent the designer and spend more money to have the problem fixed.  I don't want to be dependent on anyone when it comes to YUMMommy.

I'm thankful that so far August hasn't been nearly as rainy as July was.  There have definitely been more opportunities for us to get out and explore.  I'm thankful that we live up the street from one of our favorite restaurants-Chicken King!!  If y'all ever come to the Queen City, check out one of their locations.  The food is so yummy.

We're still waiting for Moo's screening appointment for Pre-K, but in the meanwhile she's been voluntarily asking me to go over her ABCs, numbers and more with her!  It's one thing for me to initiate learning.  But now that she does it, my heart just swells even more with mommy joy!  I think every parent wants their child to love learning and have a proactive role in building their education.  I'm thankful for every extra step that have and will continue to take to shape my children into better people!



What are you thankful for this week?

  1. Found you at the Thankful Thursday link-up! Definitely take your kids to the park and take advantage of the sunny days. :) And your blog looks great (haven't visited before, but I like how it looks). I think you're doing great on your own!

    1. Thanks! I'm still learning and experimenting with a few things but it's been a great accomplishment to actually design and tweak my blog myself. Hope you visit again!

  2. The rain this season has really been a bummer.

    Yes!! When your kids show a fervor for learning it is a great thing. One less battle to fight, and it is really on us in the beginning to make it fun to set a standard about learning and school

    1. I hope we don't get stuck with a rainy fall season. And you're so right about us as parents setting the learning standard for our kids. So many parents think it's the teacher's responsibility but it isn't.

  4. Looking forward to the new changes on your blog. I will warn you it's very addictive. I now feel the need to give my own blog a facelift every month or so ;)

    In keeping with the theme of today's post, I am thankful for my beautiful family. Everyday I have them in my life is a blessing.

    1. 'Me time' is the best even if it's just a few minutes.

  8. Oh August has definitely been a lot better with rain than July! July was like a monsoon every single day! I love tutorials for blog design! I don't know how to use Blogger whatsoever and I love to learn, so I'm looking forward to your tutorials! :)

    1. I agree! We didn't see anything close to the amount of rain we saw in July.
