Thankful Thursday

"There are so many things we can be thankful for and when we realize that, life instantly becomes better."

Happy Thankful Thursday YUMMs!  Can you guys believe tomorrow is Friday?  I know that Monday was Memorial Day and the kids were out of school, but in way this four day week seems like it was long.  It could be all the late nights I've been putting.  I've been brainstorming up some new videos and weekly/monthly segments I want to add to my YouTube channel

Speaking of YouTube, I'm thankful to be back filming.  I was a on a little roll before my camera broke.  I'm toying with the idea of doing a day-in-the-life video once school gets out.  This week the kids in Moo's class seem to be better behaved.  Their teacher told them if everybody behaved they'd get to camp out in tents in the classroom on Friday.

Now while some of you maybe thinking that a teacher shouldn't have to bribe her students to behave, I think it was good idea.  Each week they have a different sub-theme.  Since this month's overall theme was nature, this week they studied about camping in the great outdoors.  She killed two birds with one stone.  Plus, it's always good to help students end the school year on a good note.  Also, I was glad to hear that nobody picked on Moo's friend this week.  These kids start bullying early y'all!

When I made my vision board for the New Year, I put travel related things on there.  I'm thankful to announce that I'll be taking my first trip next month and repartnering with one of my favorite brands.  I'll share more information as my trip gets closer.  For now I'll be going on this trip sans the kiddies unless something changes. 

This week I'm also giving thanks on clarity as it relates to friendships.  I've come to realization that people who only put in the effort to contact you when they need something are NOT friends.  No matter how long you've known them or how much of a friend you've been to them, they're still users. And surprisingly I'm okay with cutting ties from these folks.  Life's just too short and friendship to me is too sacred to be wasting.

Last but not least I'm grateful that my mommy is still acing her classes with flying colors!!   She's been maintaining an A+ and we couldn't be prouder of her. Please keep her in your prayers as finals are coming up soon.

What are you thankful for this week?  And have you entered my PayPal Cash giveaway yet?

  1. Your kids still in school? I thought everyone was out by now. We are done down here so I am thankful I get to sleep in for two months then they are back at school the end of July. Friends are a dime a dozen and as I get older I find them harder to find.

    1. I wish school was out here. We still have a few more days to go. And I agree that it gets harder to find great friends the older you get.

  2. Sounds like you had a great week! I am especially thankful for new opportunities this week! Happy Friday!
