Thankful Thursday: Week 17


This week has been craaaazy so far!  I've been going nonstop and feel like a bad blogger friend because I've barely had any time to respond to emails or catch up on my favorite blogs.  The busy-ness is going to continue through the weekend and is it terrible that I'm already looking forward to next Monday, my day off, to just do nothing?!  Probably.

Make sure to link up with Mia at Make Me Up MiaCarly at Carly Blogs HereKristal at The Strong Family and I and let us know what you were thankful for this week!  Here is a little bit of what has been going on...

Thursday, April 17


Yay for finally being able to open up the sunroof!  It's crazy how happy warm weather can make you in the spring.

Friday, April 18


Nick had the day off of work for Good Friday so we got to spend the entire day together!  We ran errands, did some shopping, went to the gym, made dinner and watched the Red Wings game.  It was a productive but fun day.

Saturday, April 19


On Saturday, I worked all.day.long.  A 12 hour shift.  It was totally worth doing because it meant that I was able to have Easter Sunday off!  The highlight of my day was getting to escape to Panera for lunch.

Sunday, April 20


After 40 days without cheese, this was the best sight in the world.

Monday, April 21


On Monday, I took over the Blog Baton!  It was a fun day and if you're interested in doing it for yourself, check it out here!

Tuesday, April 22


Tuesday night is volleyball night and since the Red Wings were playing before our game, we headed to the bar for dinner/drinks.  Going to the bar before a volleyball game could have been a very bad idea but we still managed to win all three games!  I can't say the same for the Red Wings, though.  Boo.

Wednesday, April 23


Love, love, love this place.  If you live in Chicago and are looking for someone to do your eyebrows, go see Emma at Arch Apothecary.  She will change your life!
