These are a few of my gratitude things

Well in the spirit of the month of Thanksgiving, I thought I would get on the band wagon and share just a few of the things I'm thankful for. They aren't in any particular order, really, just what came to my mind.

1. FAMILY! I have, in my opinion, the funniest, craziest, most lovable family in the world! Some of my favorite times in life is when we are all gathered together reminiscing about the stupid stuff we did as kids, and the pure torture we put our parents through. There is just something so comforting about being surrounded by the ones you love.

2. FRIENDS! I have been so incredibly blessed with amazing friendships with people I absolutely adore. Some are from high school, some from work, and so so many from our church. To all of you I am blessed to know and call my friend, thank you for putting up with my craziness and for the never ending support you have given me.

3. HUSBAND! I never in a million years thought I would get married- truly I didn't. I was the shy girl who lacked the confidence to put myself out there. But I have found my best friend, and my strength. Tyler is the biggest nerd I know, but he balances out my crazy, worry driven, over analytical self, and for that I am truly grateful.

4. CARBOHYDRATES! Random, I know, but there is something about the fall and winter weather that makes me appreciate the deliciousness of all things carbohydrate. Some of my favorites include banana bread, pumpkin chocolate chip bread, cookies, funfetti cake with sprinkles, rice krispy treats, and home made bread fresh out of the oven. YUMMO!!

5. MUSIC! One of my favorite things to do is dance. My groove has been thrown off since becoming pregnant (mostly I just look like an Umpa Loompa if I try to bust a move) so I miss dancing in the kitchen or in front of the mirror when getting ready. But I can tell you that's the first thing to come back once these babies are out! :)

6. BABIES! Our world was significantly rocked a few months ago with the news of triplets, but I cannot tell you how incredibly grateful I am to welcome these little guys in to our family. I am positive Tyler and I will be running around like chickens with their heads cut off, but I gotta admit I'm anxious to see how everything turns out. What will they look like? What will their little personalities be? Pondering things like that makes me smile and somehow makes the stress of it all disappear for a minute.

Alright, I've rambled enough. This is definitely not a complete list, but just what has been on my mind lately. Happy thanksgiving month everyone! :)

We should all stop and count our blessings! By the way, I'm glad your feet and ankles are still identifiable! (ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN PREGNANT WILL KNOW WHAT I MEAN : )

You're not kidding... you're one of the best mirror dancers I've ever seen! ;) Thanks for sharing your list. Cute picture of you two btw.
