Thankful Thursday: Week 9

I feel like I was just sitting down to write my last Thankful Thursday post.. where are the days going?!  It has been sort of a stressful week due to some personal issues but instead of constantly dwelling on what is going wrong, I've been finding myself focusing on what is going right.  There is so much to be thankful for, even when things aren't going our way.  Being more thankful in 2014 was my goal and I can honestly see the improvement in myself and I think I have this link up to thank for that.  Myself and my 3 cohosts - Mia at Make Me Up Mia, Carly at Carly Blogs Here and Kristal at The Strong Family - would love for you to link up with us today and share what you are thankful for!

 Is there anything better than coming home to dinner already made?  After a long rainy day, a steaming hot bowl of tortellini sausage soup made in the crockpot was sooo appreciated!  Find the recipe HERE!

We headed to Michigan on Friday to spend the weekend with Nick's family.  If you didn't know, I consider myself a ginger ale connoisseur (25 going on 65 over here...) so we had to stop and get some Michigan made Vernors when we arrived!

Saturday, February 22


This smirk is Nick's signature face when we take pictures.  This was us at Lucky's Steakhouse - if you are in the metro Detroit area, get yourself over there ASAP.  Amazing food!

Sunday, February 23


I typically work on Sundays so that is Nick's night to make dinner.  Since we were out of town, I wasn't working obviously but he still volunteered to make dinner when we got home!  Of course I let him and enjoyed a nice long hot shower while he cooked up a delicious pasta dish!

Monday, February 24


Monday was a beautiful day in the city!  Not a bad view from the grocery store, right?

Tuesday, February 25


Don't judge us in this picture - we just got done playing volleyball!  After our win, we headed to Big Star to get tacos and margarita's to celebrate two of our teammates Nick and Erica's birthdays this week!

Wednesday, February 26


I'm thankful for my blogging friends recipes!  I tried this easy chicken parmesan that Biana posted a while back and it was SO good!  Nick loved it too so I have a feeling we will be making this often!

  15. You just made me miss michigan soooo much!! I love my home state. I'm super curious did you like the Vernors??? I of course love it. It does remind me of being sick tho, all growing up whenever you were sick your mom always gave you Vernors to feel better :)
