Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday!!!  This week started off with a little family time.  Sunday afternoon, I got a nice visit from my mom and niece.  The kids played a little bit and then we hit the road to do a little shopping.  We used coupons of course. (Saving up for my dream vacation).

I'm very thankful that we got to spend that time together.  With me working on my freelance career and other projects that are tied to YUMMommy, I haven't been able to go home in a while.  Moo and JJ enjoyed having Grandma's attention.

I'm also thankful that I handled my bad shopping experience at Walmart well on Monday.  Sadly, this was not my first bad experience with a Walmart store.  I did a little research and found out that a few stores were recently sued for unfair trade and business practices and the consumers were winning.  I think it's sad that Walmart is ripping people off.

But I am really proud of how composed I stayed in front my of kids.  My husband couldn't believe it when I told him about it.  He knows how I feel about my money.  And the fact that I worked in retail for five years, I know all about coupon policies and how important it is for stores to follow all corporate policies.  I've seen people get fired for not doing so.

I'm thankful that this morning my husband told him how much he loves the things I write about him on my blog.  Yes, he reads it.  I'm happy that he continues to support my desire to move forward with my writing career, YUMMommy, all of my charity projects and more.  I'm thankful that our marriage continues to get stronger.

What small happenings are you thankful for this week?

  1. It's always good to be able to enjoy family time -- especially with the kiddies and their grandma! Yay! Your relationship with your husband is so sweet and cute... *tear*

  2. Definitely awesome that your hubby is supportive of your career....and the Walmart are not alone!

  3. @Alicia-Thanks! *hugs*

    @Mrs. Pancakes-Thanks. I'm find out that Walmart has offended and scammed quite a few people when it comes to honoring most of their policies. Needless to say, I'm on a Walmart strike.
