10 Things Tuesday

XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday

It's thankful Tuesday! Yea!! (The more I do these, the easier they have become. I now have to edit my list down to 10. This is helping me become a lot more grateful for my blessings.)
  1. I'm thankful that my husband is not in the military. He gets to come home from work every day.

  2. Talked to my sister-in-law, Anne, today. Oh, that girl makes me laugh! I am so thankful for our friendship.

  3. Popsicles. When all is lost and we are bored to (literal) tears, it's popsicles to the rescue!

  4. Ashleigh, my running buddy. Who would have thought that I don't dread our 5:30 runs?
  5. Online banking!

  6. Sophie dressing herself each morning. It may be a crazy concoction, but it's one less outfit I have to mess with.

  7. Yeah, I know everyone says it, but Happy Hour at Sonic is one of my best friends.
  8. Time with all 3 of my babies together. Usually coloring or lego-ing in the floor. I'm glad I've got all of them home with me for another year.

  9. I found the scale! I thought maybe Jeff had hidden it. I get a little obsessive...

  10. Blogging! I believe it's helping me to find the joy, the funny, the sweet, the significant in each day. And the comment section is a whole blessing in itself! Wouldn't you agree?

I do agree with #10!
I completely hear you on #9!
I just did a whole post last night about #7!
#4 makes me think you're crazy!!

And #1...I am so thankful for the same thing. My prayers are with all of those who are sacrificing that time together for all of us!

Completely agree on the comment section! And can I just say that I'm so jealous you get to enjoy Sonic's happy hour? Up until this year, the nearest Sonic was in Pennsylvania, and they just built the first NJ Sonic in SOUTH Jersey, hours away, so I haven't had a Sonic fix since last year. I had a friend from church make her husband drive her 3 hours one Saturday to get her some Sonic. (She's from Oklahoma.)

I know, I cried tonight watching The Biggest Loser too! I cry every time I watch it. It has been such a big motivation for me losing my weight & reaching goal! Thanks for stopping by!

I love your blog! I can't wait to catch up. I learned to smock and made 2 dresses a couple of years ago and have not revisited that. I want to...and I will eventually! I want to like running...I am not there yet. What is a running class? I have not ever heard of that.

Amy said...

Love the thankful tuesday lists! One of the things you should put on there is your thankfulness for LISTS!!! I thought I loved me a list but I think your love for them outweighs mine!! I do enjoy reading your lists though! We also love Sonic's Happy Hour and the blog comment pages! The best is the 3 girls together - it just melts ya!


Brian, Jamie, Molly & Sarah said...

I think at the top of my list is going to be blogging and probably second....comments! Thanks for helping keep the rest of us motivated. I had so much fun doing my family 50 things, that once I got started I think I could have done 500.


Nikki said...

I teach 5th grade in Rock Hill, SC....love it!!! I love your 10 things!

Shana said...

I love your list! It looks like we would get along very well because I could totally make your list mine! Loved your comment at the beginning, too! Oh...and I don't personally know you or Jill, but I already really like you because you are Biggest Loser Watchers. I can't wait to see who wins!

Mercedes said...

Happy Hour at Sonic is my bf's best friend. I completely agree with you on #10!

Thanks for visiting

Have a great day!

Amanda Crisp said...

Yes, surprise children are the best! Speaking of children, yours are absolutely gorgeous, and I LOVE their names. :)

Hope you have a great day!

maryann said...

Love you thankful heart. I am in a Bible Study on contentment and yesterday was all about being grateful for ALL the many things God is doing in our lives--all the time. Guess whose name came to mind as a thankful person? YOU!

Brian, Jamie, Molly & Sarah said...

Oh, fancy new blog skin. I love it!!! It definitely suits you.


Sarah approves as well, she saw it and said strawberries, cupcakes, yum.

Danielle Balentine said...

Absolutely! Blogging has made me appreciate my connections so much more. And it's so fun getting to read all my friend's blogs. It's like I can hear you talking in your posts, and it cracks me up! Especially you and Ash. Thanks and keep it up.
