Day 3 ~~ Days of Thankfulness ~~

Okay, so yes this is Day 3 of the Days of Thankfulness, and no I have not posted on days 1 and 2, because well, I am a slacker =)

Actually, I didn't know about this until yesterday when I read RJ's blog post.  I LOVE that she is doing this unconventionally.  I tell you, we were seperated at birth.  There is like, well let's see, NOTHING conventional about me.  It's just the way God made me.  Made me, broke the mold.  But I am completely okay with that, because I know that His plans are best for me, even if they are unconventional =)  I'd have it no other way!!


So since, we are doing this unconventional (and if you want to know exactly what that means head on over to girlfriend's blog.  She has been thankful that horses are not getting hit by cars and wedding pictures ~~ I LOVE HER!!!) 
Today I am thankful for Orange Leaf and a pretty brunette, lots of Leggs kind of gal.
You see, Dak dropped Leggs off here on Tuesday while he went to a friends house to watch Glee.
So when I got home from taking mom to the doc, pretty girl was here eating Potato Soup and laughing with Mr. Winslow. 

I walk in the door and boom ~~ here she comes looking all beautiful in her yellow shirt and skinny jeans (y'all know I love me some yellow), she gave me the tightest hug and biggest smile.  Melted my heart.
I love this girl!!!

So we girled in out for about 2 hours and then decided we were hungry (again! =)  So we decided to go to Orange Leaf and get us some self-serve frozen yogrit (Sir Cutenesses interpretation of the word =)
It was SO good!!! 
I got Brownie Batter and Coffee Yogrit (don't judge =)
Topped with chocolate covered raisins, 1 brownie bite, 3 marchino cherries and love =)
Leggs got vanilla and brownie bite (don't be judging =)
with Fruity Pebbles (yes the cereal)
100 (or like 5 but who's counting) marchino cherries
Hot Fudge and love =)

The ice cream was good, but the company was MAGICAL!!!
We laughed until we cried (ok maybe that was just me ~~ I'm a laugh until I cry kinda girl and maybe even at my own jokes, which Leggs says is ridiculous, but I'm okay with it =)

We had some good 'ol girl time.
It was needed.
I've had a hard week.
I'm over me..... just sayin'


We took pictures with my iPod, but I don't have them uploaded yet,
So I will leave you with two of my favorite Personality Pictures of Leggs.
Oh and Dak cracks me up in these as well.
Looking all innocent.....

Our Big Personality, Baby Girl ~~
We love her so ~~

God knew EXACTLY what He was doing when she entered our world!!!
She is all that and a bag of chips!!

So today I am thankful for a little girl time with my Leggs ~~
Fruity Pebbles on Ice Cream (and seriously if you are not a teenager, try at your own risk =)
And so thankful to God for bringing it all together as only He can.

Romans 8:28
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)

More Than Conquerors
28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Have a SUPER BLESSED DAY ~~ I love ya ~~


  1. I love this post. I've done this every year but decided not to this year since I'm doing the 1,000 gift every Monday. Still ... a great way to turn our hearts toward thankfulness.

    I just got your comment on my post yesterday. Girl, you had that much loss within 3 months in one year??? Bless your heart. I never knew that.

    I love you, friend.

  2. Oh girl - we are TOTALLY sisters - no doubt! :)

    Isnt it fun to find the things we're thankful for each day... & especially when its as cool as yours! I love that you have these young people that come to you & that love you & you love... what special relationships you form!!!! You're an amazing lady - let me tell you!

    cant wait to see how the rest of November goes for you! <3

    love you friend!

  3. MOM! Lol you're so busted! I have never seen those pictures before and I don't even remember them! I had so much fun at Orange Leaf and keeping you up until midnight :) Girl time is always fun with my best friend! I'm so glad that you're getting another dose of Girl time with me today :)

    I love you more than mac and cheese AND all the purple things in the world.


  4. Looked at this post again and it reminded me of how much I love you and how thankful I am for you.

    Thinking of you always :)
    Love your babygirl
