Bits of Sweetness: Thankful Thursdays

Thankful Thursdays

This week has been super busy but full of some great things. I am certainly thankful!

This week, I am thankful for...

*Having a good combination of lazy days and busy days in the week. Can't have all busy or all lazy!

*Finding cute bright jeweled flip flops for $4.99 on clearance at Target! And some TOMs like shoes for $11 also in their clearance (hey I'll take what I can get!!

*Andrew's frequent use of  "This is the life!!!" lately. It is so cute. And I have no idea where he picked it up! This morning I made pancakes for breakfast and decided to add sprinkles to the batter just for fun. He was wondering why I'd added sprinkles, and I told him just for fun. He said, "Oh! I know! So it will be the life!" He is so cute :)

*Speaking of breakfast, I am thankful the world doesn't end and Andrew doesn't mind if we sleep in and breakfast doesn't happen until.. oh.. almost noon?! (Still haven't gotten a shower or gotten ready yet! >.< We're working on that though! ) 

*Andrew helping me guess stuff of Draw Something. Hate to say it but he's gotten a few I had no idea what they were!! Although his latest guess of a zebra that was obviously a zebra instead being a horse or a unicorn ("I know! It's a unicorn with stripes!!!") was pretty funny :)

*Fun moments with the little friends we've had over the past few days. All my childcare experience comes in handy on days like that, especially when our sweet neighbor kids join us and we have five kiddos in the house 5 and under!! (They did great by the way!) The only thing I wish for is having a little bit more space than 900 sq. feet and a yard too but hopefully someday!! For now I love our cozy space.

*Finding out I don't have gestational diabetes!! Woohoo! And also being able to do jelly beans instead of the orange drink for the test. I know some don't mind it, and that's good if you don't! But me? I like my jelly beans. (You'll have to call your dr office ahead of time though to make sure this is ok. You'll probably have to bring your own if they don't have the option of jelly beans.) On the downside, my iron is low :( But apparently our co-op has some good stuff that is gentle. I'm hoping! I need to go get some more OJ and some steaks today to add even more iron! And you know, maybe I should start using the cast iron pan I got for $8 at a thrift store but that is just sitting on our stovetop, totally unused!! 

*My hubby's work schedule. Yes. I am very very thankful for it! A year ago, he was working a retail schedule(had been for years) and it was a little nuts having it be all over the place and him gone late some nights. But, a year ago he took a promotion to the office at JCP and totally loves it! And, the schedule isn't too bad either now being M-F and off early afternoons. We are so thankful to get him around more! He's a pretty great hubby & dad! 

I'll keep the list short and sweet this week :) What are you thankful for?

  3. Oh I want some nice flip flops...please! Hahah ;) I need to go shopping.

    Sorry I missed your linkup :(

    I am SO happy you don't have gestational diabetes...woohoo!! Interestingly enough - someone random came into the gym last night to say that 1 spoon of cinnamon a day cures diabetes. It was SO random. But very interesting. I feel like he went there for a reason and so anyone that mentions it - I mention it to them...has to be a reason :)

    I made myself stop playing Draw was TOO time consuming. LOL :)

    Hope you have a lovely day my beautiful friend!
