Oh, I have so much to be thankful for this Saturday!
#1 – I am oh so thankful that this baby has arrived, safe and sound! And for this beautiful face. Those CHEEKS!
#2. I am also VERY thankful for her darling “big” sister, Hayleigh, who will be 18 months old on the 6th. She always puts a huge smile on my face!
#3. I’m thankful that these girls’ Mama, my niece Heather, had a relatively easy pregnancy and delivery.
#4. I am thankful that my niece’s husband just adores his baby girls. I pick on him a lot, but he is a GREAT Daddy.
#5. I am thankful that my son, Tim, has been to the hospital twice to visit with them. My kids are very close to their cousin Heather, and all three of them adore those baby girls. But I think it’s extra special that Tim, a 20 year old GUY, loves the babies so much. He took Shelbie and Elayna to the hospital on Thursday night (they’re with their dad this week), and on Friday night he went up there by himself AND bought dinner for Heather and her husband, DJ. So I’m not bragging or anything, but my boy is pretty much awesome.
#6. I am thankful that I am on Vacation! I have a total of 12 days off; my last shift was Tuesday night, and I’m off until NEXT Monday night. I am SO looking forward to some quality time with my girls! And my hubby, of course. We have some fun stuff planned.
I wish my son could join us, but he is a hard working young man and he has to work all week.
#7. I am thankful that the quote below is such a very true statement.
#8. I’m thankful for some great internet friends and all of you who followed me over here to my new home! Yes, I said that last week, but even more of you have come over and I may just say it again next week! So neener neener!
#9. I’m thankful that several of you showed interest in my Instagram Carnival idea. I’m going to start it on Tuesday! So be sure to come by and link up if you are so inclined. Also, if you use another photo app like Flickr, you are still welcome to join in.
#10. On a totally unrelated and shallow note: I am incredibly, amazingly thankful for crab legs. By far, they are my favorite food. I honestly believe the good Lord put them on this Earth to prove that he loves us and wants us to be happy. I also believe that, if I’m a good girl, when I make it to the Pearly Gates, God will meet me in Heaven with a heaping, steaming plate of crab legs and a bowl of drawn butter with garlic.
Eating crab legs is an experience, with me. I am usually a pretty neat eater but when it comes to crab legs, all bets are off. I make a huge mess. I chew oh-so-slowly to savor every delicious moment. I honestly feel sorry for people who don’t enjoy seafood; to me, they are missing out on one of the best foods there is. And it’s also healthy! (shutupaboutthebutter)
