I am Thankful For...

I don't want to get too deep here, but my life is pretty good right now and I'm thankful for many things.

B and Hobie-They are both awesome and fun to live with.  B is a pretty awesome husband, is mildly hilarious (to me), and hardly ever makes me drive us anywhere.  Hobie always listens to me and hangs with me when B goes out of town on work trips so I don't get lonely.

My Family-They are pretty cool and fun and I'm excited I get to hang out with all of them tomorrow and some of them on Friday.  They also support my plan for multiple Thanksgiving meals which is key.  I especially loved brother and sisters beach trip 2010.

B's Family-They are pretty cool also.  And without them I probably wouldn't have visited the states of Indiana and Colorado or gone to a 90th birthday party.

My Friends-My friends (most of who I've known since high school/college) are fun and supportive and have been putting up with me for a really long time.  I deeply enjoy trivia, wedding/bridal shower/baby shower/bachelorette party planning, 5K's, beach trips, dinner parties, dinzee budeez (especially ones where I long con someone in to baking a turkey), occasional trips to Durham/Las Vegas, etc.

My House-I love my house and am lucky I live somewhere that I love.  I'm also excited about attempting some decorating renovations over the holidays.  I'll keep you posted on that.

My Job-Ok, this might surprise some people reading this, but let's think about the positives.  I get to leave at 11 on Fridays, can listen to my headphones whenever I want (or need) and I have free health insurance.   Not a bad deal.

My Hobbies-I don't love all the things I do at my job but that's what hobbies are for.  And this year I've picked up both blogging and sewing which I think are adding a lot to my life.  (Plus there's all the wonderful/semi-wonderful tv shows out there that I watch.  TV watching is a hobby right?)

You-I'm thankful for all the people who read and/or comment on my blog. 

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

What are you thankful for?

I am thankful that all those years of traveling in the car to Gammy's house and forcing you children to go around saying what you are thankful for has finally paid off. We are also thankful for B (and yes, precious Hobster) and you, and so much more.

You are so very very lucky to be leaving work at 11 on Fridays...what I wouldn't give! I'm also super jealous of everyone living in NC. The Favorite just bought a house there (literally 2 days ago) and you wouldn't be able to get 1/4 of it here for the price they paid. It almost makes me think about moving. But it's so far away.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
