10 things Tuesday

10 Things I am thankful for about living in Jonesboro:
  1. I grew up near here, so every now and then I get a "blast from the past" when people come home to visit their families. That's always fun.
  2. Cost of living is awesomely low. (Yet, still I fuss over finances. Don't worry, I'm turning that over to God. :) )
  3. We live 5 minutes (or less) from a state park.
  4. We are a part of an incredible church family.
  5. Close to both sets of grandparents in case of emergencies!
  6. Friends we can depend on to watch our babies in a pinch (like for haircuts, dr. appts., etc.)
  7. We live less than a minute from THE SONIC, kids.
  8. If we just have to have some city-life, Memphis is less than an hour away. However, the need for city-life is getting less and less each year.
  9. Nobody makes fun of you for driving a minivan, because they've probably got one, too.
  10. I may joke about our extra long summer, but pretty soon the leaves will be amazing, we might get some snow, and in the spring the flowers will take your breath away.

I've got some more fun blogging things to share with you, but it will have to wait until tomorrow!

We live near a National Park and know that we are blessed.
Thanks for sharing a bit of your world.

There's just something about going back "home" isn't there? I can relate to many things on your list.

I'm sorry, I have yet to convert to the mini van. So, technically, I can still poke fun, but I will not b/c it does have extra space for hauling my kids when needed!!!

You and Jenny both mentioned the greatness of Sonic, and I would have to agree. My kids, however, have not caught on to the fun (guess it saves me money, though!) We went yesterday for happy hour and I got my Diet Coke, of course. Kellen gets water, Peyton asks if she can have a piece of candy at home instead of a drink, Owen gets apple juice which he soon passes to Dawson who eagerly takes some sips and then squeezes the STYROFOAM cup, which promptly cracks and dumps all the apple juice in his lap! Ahh....at least I got my Diet Coke! ;-)

Okay, with the Sonic. Now you're just rubbing it in.;)

You didn't tell me you had a blog! :o) (Oh yeah, I didn't tell you I had one either.) I didn't comment on your newest post b/c it didn't seem fair for the newcomer to swoop in and steal the prize! Looking forward to reading some of your old posts.

This is a great list! It's witty, too!

I'm glad to know someone else who seems to be as excited about THE SONIC as I am! :)
