What I’m Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


Today is the day to talk about why we’re thankful, all the while trying to not pummel our annoying family members with a drumstick. Good luck with that.


For the past few weeks, Facebook statuses have been blowing up by people saying what they’re thankful for. I haven’t been doing it, mostly because after Day 5, my statuses would have been snarky and rude. And that’s not what Facebook is for.


It’s what this blog is for.


So, besides my husband, my family, my friends, and my Lord, there are many things I am thankful for. Some may seem unconventional, but hey, I’m glad I have these things in my life:


1. I’m thankful for no more political ads.

I am SO glad that the election has come and gone. I’m glad to have my commercial breaks be full of annoying car commercials and silly tampon ads if it means no more politicians vying for my vote.


“I think we should get rid of our TV.”

2. Internet memes.

Seriously. I have wasted enjoyed many hours of hilarity thanks to the various memes float out on the interwebs.

McKayla is not impressed with your Thanksgiving dinner.


3. Dollar Tree.

Where else can you walk in with $5 in your pocket and feel like you’re makin’ it rain, droppin’ dollas on book lights and candy. Or maybe this best-seller:

I have no words.


4. Earplugs.

Living in apartment can be nice. The rent is cheaper than a mortgage, there’s no lawn to mow, and you don’t have to worry about neighborhood dogs having their daily constitutional on your grass. But, its also noisy. VERY NOISY. Especially when you live in between some teeny-boppers and little kids. Sigh. Needless to say, I wear earplugs a lot. And they work SO well!


5. Sarcastic eCards.

How many of us have nearly cracked a rib from laughing so hard at these snarky cards? They say everything we want to say but are too afraid to say.



(In all seriousness, I am so blessed to have such an amazing and loving husband, family, and friends. I’ve got a great job and Huff the Hubs and I are almost out of student loan debt. We’re so blessed and so thankful for everything we have. I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving!)
