Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful that we're at the one week mark for Thanksgiving!  I'm super excited to be staying home and celebrating with the Mr this year!  And he's happy have us home this year. We're really looking forward to being in the kitchen together as a family and cooking dinner together then settling down for a little football, the parades and Christmas movies.

Speaking of Christmas, I'm thankful that JJ has toppled over the Christmas tree yet.  It's been up for three days and I think he's finally getting use to it.  We didn't put on the glass balls this year because we didn't want him getting hurt in case he dropped one. So, right now we just have lights, tinsel garland and a few non-glass ornaments up.  We're going to go check out some shatter-proof Christmas balls this weekend.

I'm thankful that I have been rocking this NaBloPoMo challenge.  The month is almost half over and I haven't missed a day of posting yet.  Proud of myself because challenges like these really help to shape me into a better and more disciplined writer.

I'm thankful to once again be a part of the Old Navy Style Council.  Be on the lookout for another shopping post about my favorite store.  It's truly a blessing to have this chance to work with one of my favorite brands again.  It's even more of a blessing that I'm get the opportunity to do something related to fashion and use my degree.

And I don't think I've mentioned this but JJ is teething again.  He has one tooth coming in on the bottom and one coming in on the top.  I'm thankful that this teething session is going better than others.  I guess since he's eating table food that helps to scratch his gums and he hasn't been sick which usually happens with teething.  He's had a light fever here and there but nothing serious.

What are you giving thanks for this week?


  1. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I need to plan the menu!

    I am thankful that I get to spend Thanksgiving with my family. I love cooking and laughing with everyone.

  2. I am a big fan of the shatterproof ornaments...if one falls or gets knocked donw, no big deal! And hope JJ's teeth are feeling better.

  3. My family as always and the ability to travel for Xmas!
