Thankful Thursday: Week 21


We're back for another round of Thankful Thursday!  Lots and lots to be thankful for this week so lets get started.  Don't forget to stop and say hi to my 3 lovely cohosts - Mia at Make Me Up MiaCarly at Carly Blogs HereKristal at The Strong Family!

Thursday, May 15


I am thankful for AC!  Seriously.  Our apartment faces west and we're on a high floor so we don't have any shade.  This means that from 2 pm on everyday, the sun is literally beating down into our apartment.  And since all of our windows are on one wall, we don't get any sort of cross breeze to cool things off.  As long as it's over 65 degrees outside and the sun is out, our apartment will heat up to 90 degrees.  It's brutal!

I was just casually walking through Nordstrom when these diamond rings caught my eye.  I've been wanting another band -who doesn't right - and since that ain't happening for a while, I thought maybe I'd buy a fake one to wear for something different every once in a while!  The middle band is the Ariella Eternity Band and for the price, I think it looks great!  They didn't have my size in the store unfortunately so I'll have to order it online.  I'm thankful (as is my husband!) that Nordstrom just saved us thousands of dollars :)

Saturday, May 17


So thankful to have friends that come to visit us!  A win for the Cubs was also something to be thankful for as that happens... never.

Sunday, May 18


It was a picture perfect day in Chicago.  We spent the whole day outside at the zoo and later playing tennis with other friends!

Monday, May 19


What else would I be thankful for on a Monday?!  The Bachelorette is back!  I watched it at my friends place with a bunch of friends and some big ol' bowls of ice cream.  Loving Andi so far!

Tuesday, May 20


Nick and I took my bike up to the gas station near us to fill my tires up with air.  We barely beat the storm that was rolling in and it started pouring down on us just as we got home!  We had a volleyball game that same night and it was the start of the playoffs.  Thankfully we won but it was the most intense game we've ever played and the final point could of gone to either team.  Championships here we come for the 3rd season in a row!

Wednesday, May 21


My car sucks.  Well not really considering it's 13 years old now but its seen better days.  I only drive to work since we live in the city so it's not worth it to invest the money in a new car down here.  Basically I'm going to drive this one into the ground and that's definitely where it's headed.  The last month has been the worst and I swear something new happens every single week.  Nick and I dropped the car off yesterday and then headed to Chick fil A for a lunch date so I guess that's the positive there :)

Also - one extra thing I was thankful for this week!  Remember THE sandals I mentioned last week?  Hard work pays off because I found them in my size!!!  Thank you to whoever mentioned that they saw them at TJ Maxx because that was the lucky spot!  Only took like 8 different stores to find them haha!

  3. I am so thankful that we need AC soon! After this winter, I will take all of the heat I can get! Drive your car into the ground! We learned that the hard way when my husband's was stolen and mine was hit and we had to replace two in the last couple of months. The newer they are, the more $ you lose. Maybe it's just having a rough spell and it will be good again soon!

  7. I definitely gave in and started watching the Bachelorette, too ... I was on my high horse about not watching it this season, but when I heard there was a guy on there from my husband's hometown (Nick), we just HAD to watch it. Now I'm hooked, as always. Your new band is gorgeous! We've talked about getting me another band, too for our one-year anniversary possibly ... I was thinking of maybe doing something in rose gold, just to give it a little different look. We will see!

  8. Chick-fil-a is the bomb-diggity, no? Car costs are not, though!! Sorry. I don't think I could take 89 degrees. Do you put a lot of fans in there? And your ring is beautiful!

  9. Yes... Andi! Bachelorette! Looks like another good season is firing up!!!
    I love the rings together! So beautiful on your hand!

  12. Woo hoo for finding the sandals!! Your rings look gorgeous, that is a great find for sure. I have 2 bands, one on each side of my ring. I had them soldered, I love them :) And mmm chick fil a! We have one here but I hardly get it because it is so packed during lunch!

  13. Love, love your zoo outfit. Holy shiz - that CZ/diamond band is fantastic! Chick-fil-a is going to be the death of me. And now, thanks to you, it's all I can think about ha.

  14. This is my first summer ever in Chicago WITHOUT central air conditioning and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit terrified. We have window units, so I hope they keep me cool!

  15. You know I bought a fake band at Nordstrom when one of the stones fell out of my eternity band. I told my husband that does not get him out of a push present!

  16. That ring is GORGEOUS! Love it! Are you going to need to get a new car when you move to Michigan? Don't forget your Red Wing sticker...I have one on the back of my car :)

  18. I've been asking for another band for years!! The one you found is gorgeous!! I need to watch the bachelorette still. It's recorded, just haven't watched. I loved Andi before, so I'm sure I'll love her this season too. :)

  19. Loving so much in this post: Chic Fil A, your nails, the diamonds, baseball, love it all :)

  20. Oh my gosh I thought all those diamonds were real for a minute!! Talk about some serious sparkle! Gotta love Chick Fil A - silver lining! :)

  21. I've been trying to convince Travis that my already perfect wedding rings need a third friend. I just get the eye roll and that's too much money. I might have to start shopping for the more inexpensive version like you found. They look great together.

  22. That eternity band is gorgeous!! It's a good alternative until you can get a real diamond one ;)
    I'm hoping to get another band for our 5 year anniversary. *fingers crossed*
