Week In Review - Ten Things Of Thankful (18)


Ten Things of Thankful


Another weekend, something to be thankful for all by itself. Time to relax, time to spend with the family, time to bake, time to sleep...

Ten more things to be thankful for this week (plus a couple extra):

1. My mom, for jumping in on really short notice when hubby and I had parallel evening engagements.

2. Having a great job where I can spontaneously decide on a Casual Wednesday, since I had a business appointment on Friday.

3. Hubby for an awesome crockpot chili.

4. Wonderful neighbors, who are more friends than just neighbors. We'll so miss them once we move!

5. Meeting fun new people at the company's cook-out.

6. Not barfing in the bus this morning. Coffee on a very empty and sensitive stomach first thing after a way too short night was not the best idea!

7. Getting to watch Violet crawl into my bed after breakfast, cuddle with her Daddy, and fall back to sleep.

8. Cuddles with Lily this morning.

9. Sleeping in this morning.

10. Family breakfast.

11. Chocolate gingerbread and hot apple punch.

12. Getting to fall asleep next to the love of my life every night, and getting to wake up next to him every morning.

 And not to forget 13: the decision not to blog on Sundays for the time being. Time with the family, preparing gifts for the holidays, doing chores around the house... I just need a day off so bad...


Thanks a lot to Lizzi for hosting!!

  2. I have also not been blogging on Sundays and it has been truly glorious. I must say the weekends in general are so much laid back, because of this and ending on the Thankful not once a week. So here is to no more blogging on Sundays and hoping your weekend is going well so far, Stephanie!! :)

    1. It's really good, even though I honestly prefer the mulled wine over the apple punch..

  7. I think #12 is my favorite. It is a blessing to be able to say such a thing.
    Although #6 was pretty good. It's always good to avoid barfing.
    Enjoy your Sunday!

    1. I really know ho lucky I am!! I admit, every once in a while I enjoy sleeping in weekend mornings and have the bed all by myself. But generally, I hate sleeping by myself ;-)

  10. #11, #12 and #13 are all especially awesome. I think one of your non-Sunday posts should be to share recipes for the chocolate gingerbread (is it anything like Lebkuchen? I make them each year and they're delish) and apple punch :)

    1. Thanks so much, Lizzi! I have to admit, the gingerbread (or lebkuchen) was store-bought. But I'll bake this season and definitely will share!! Maybe we shoudl swap recipes ;-)

  11. Loved it when the kids would climb into bed with us and fall back asleep! My 6'3" college boy still likes to climb into bed with us occasionally.

    I'm sure everyone on the bus is thankful that you didn't barf, either.

    Hope you're enjoying your Sunday!

    1. Not barfing is always something to be thankful for.. Hang-over is definitely something that comes with age for me ;-)
