Thankful Thursday: Week 13


It's a rainy morning here in Chicago and I am kind of loving it.  The sound of rain hitting the roof, candles lit, yoga pants on and a day off of work = heaven.  There is so much to be thankful for and this week was no exception!  Don't forget to visit my 3 wonderful cohosts - Mia at Make Me Up Mia, Carly at Carly Blogs Here and Kristal at The Strong Family - and see what they've been up to as well!

This picture is actually from last August but I'm always thankful for my friends!  We have a group text and Erica sent us this pic on Thursday from one of our best nights out last summer!

So thankful for a new haircut!  I cut 5 inches off and it felt so good.  What didn't feel good was the price tag - read more about that here!

Date nights are the best nights, especially when there is BBQ involved!

Sunday, March 23


I took this picture on our walk home from church Sunday night.  God is so good.

Nick was in Atlanta for work on Monday night so yep, this was my dinner.  #noshame

Shopping for our upcoming vacation to Florida has begun!  So many good sales out there right now, it's the perfect time to stock up on fun spring and summer things!

Wednesday, March 26



I thought I would start this post with friends and end it with friends - my blogging friends!  After a day of running around like crazy, it brings me so much happiness to sit down and read all of your sweet comments and emails.  I love you all!

Ps.  Does anyone know why Instagram makes pictures so pixely (that's a real word, I'm sure)?  You can obviously tell which ones were from Instagram due to the quality and I'm wondering if there is a trick to fix this or something I'm missing?

  6. I never knew how pixelated the Instagram pictures were until I got my tablet. YIKES. Don't know if its their new upgrade? Some others actually come out clear & I don't know how myself. If you find out, let me know the secret.
    That picture of your street looks like an album cover or something - beautiful!
    My dinners would be embarrassing on most nights so definitely no shame :)

  8. It's rainy here in Indy too and I'm jealous of your yoga pants at home situation! It's the perfect day for that. Love the haircut! (Yikes on the price tag though. :( I agree they should have at least warned you about that.) And my dinners look about the same when my husband is traveling.

  10. Girlfriends are the best! After going to dinner last night with a group of mine I really thought on the way home about how I wouldn't know what to do without them & how going to dinner, enjoying a glass of wine & just laughing all night long is the best.

  11. I love all of these pictures! I have to admit just seeing shopping bags makes me want to go shopping-- haha, how sad is that? I haven't been in far too long! Love the first picture of you & your friends too! Summer nights are really the best!

  12. I'm so jealous of your little shopping spree - I am just itching to go shopping! I think it's because I'm tired of looking and wearing all my dreary winter clothes. It's time for spring already. Looks like you've had a good week - always lots to be thankful for!

  19. Did you say which part of FL you are going to in an earlier post? Also meant to say the instagram thing has perplexed me for a while, too! :) Doesn't look pixely on IG but totally does if you regram it to FB or in a text-- and Lord forbid you try to print them!
