Thankful Thursday

It's that time again, time for Thankful Thursday.  I'm just proud I managed to remember!

1.  3-day weekends!  Is there anything better than having a day off during the week?  Maybe having a day off during the week that not everyone else gets off.  Enter President's Day.  Sawyer and I enjoyed the day to ourselves, while Wes went to work and Colin went to school.  Our day consisted of making breakfast for my mom, visiting my Granny, a little shopping, catching up on a DVR'd show, and, gasp, a little rest!  I could definitely get used to 3 days weekends!!

2.  Mindless television.  It's something that I look forward to each week that doesn't require one ounce of brain power (it might actually kill a few brain cells according to Wes).  One of my favorites:
3.  Dinner out with friends.  We got to enjoy a lovely, adult-only dinner out with 2 sets of dear friends this weekend.  It's a rare occurrence for us to get out (together) without the kids, so when we do it's extra special!  We had a great meal and actually got to carry on a conversation while we ate!  We're already looking forward to our next outing.  And bonus, the kids were both asleep when we got home!  Now that's a real treat - thanks mom!

What are you thankful for today?


  1. I'd love to email you about the new book, 5 Spiritual Solutions for Everyday Parenting Challenges. Stephen R. Covey said, “Every LDS parent should read this book.” (I’d happily to send you one if you’re interested).

    Please email me at If possible, I'd like to privately send you some more information.

  2. Although I did not have a 3-day weekend, I was thankful that traffic was lighter on Monday because many people did : )

    Today I'm excited for maternity tights and taco night at Casa de Kelly : )

    I'd love to hear your thoughts on Heirloom, I have been wanting to visit.

  3. I'm thankful for the delicious fried pickles I had at lunch today, for my sweet husband, and for all the great tv shows on Thursday nights.

  4. The 90210 pic cracked me up! I, too, once watched it. Although I had to give it up about mid last year as I felt too old. Sigh.
