Thankful Thursday!!

Thursday, August 18, 2011


Hi There!! Today has been such an incredible day...actually, this entire week has been AH-MAY-ZING! I genuinely hope you are having an equally wonderful day. 

While shopping for sparkly nail polish, I had the idea to start my very own gratitude list segment on this blog. I've decided to call it "Thankful Thursday" because of my affinity with aliterations. I know that a lot of bloggers out there feature "things I love Thursday" articles(such are Gala Darling and Kaelah) , but I really don't want to be a copy cat. Part of my ideology for living happily is constantly taking the time to make note of what makes me smile. Even the silly, little, and insignificant things count. I'm extremely excited to launch this brand new segment, although I've been sporadically writing gratitude lists for years. I hope you will join in on all of this gratitude and share your own list of thankfulness. 


"Happiness is a grateful spirit, an optimistic attitude, and a
     heart full of love."

Road trips with my favorite people...I went with my boyfriend to visit his family & celebrate his nephew's birthday last weekend. They live close to Amarillo in the Texan panhandle and it was a 4 hour drive from where I live. My sister and I went to San Antonio yesterday for a short shopping get-away. We live about 3 hours away, and we spent the entire road trip singing karaoke style to the GLEE soundtracks. AND tomorrow, Zeth & I are driving to Abilene to snatch up some much needed clothes for our Fall wardrobes. Have I mentioned how much I adore traveling? Even short little road trips make me extremely happy. What about you??

Movie dates...No exaggeration...I've been to the movies about a million times this summer, AND I love it! Going to the movies is one of my absolute favorite things to do. It's one of the things I do when I'm blue. When I wrote about where my personal Tiffany's would be, I mentioned the movie theatre. We are going to see David Tennant in Fright Night TONIGHT!!

Snuggling with George...He just has this way of making my heart melt when he snuggles up close to me in his sleep. I love my Fox Terrier so much! 

Kate Spade Phone case...I just bought this case for my iPhone 4, and I LOVE it!! It's sturdy, not too bulky, and ADORABLE!!
