Thankful Thursday: Week 22


Do you ever have those days where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed?  That was me yesterday.  I was grumpy from the second I woke up.  Poor Nick - he came into the bathroom to say good morning to me while I was getting ready and I practically threw him out of there, ha.  Sometimes a girl just needs some alone time to wake up!  Anyway, it's probably best that Thankful Thursday has come around again - I could definitely use a pick me up because really, life is good.  There's so much to be thankful for!

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, May 22


Do you see that?!  This was at 9 pm as I was leaving work and it was still a little light out!  I love leaving work before it's pitch black - it doesn't make me feel as if I missed the entire day.

Friday, May 23


Friday was a good day.  Nick left for an out of town weekend trip (which was sad) but I had the day off work and enjoyed it to the fullest.  I got my entire "to do" list done during the day and then showered, made dinner and parked my butt on the couch to watch 5 episodes of Scandal.

Saturday, May 24


Saturday was a 12 hour work day which went pretty fast thankfully.  During my hour break, I had lunch outside at Potbelly and then walked over to my happy place - aka the candles section at Home Goods.

Sunday, May 25


Woohoo for new summer clothes!  I broke out my new shorts and sandals for the first time.  Both are BEYOND comfortable.

Monday, May 26


A beautiful day for tennis, bike rides and a BBQ with friends.  So thankful for everyone that serves/has served for our great nation - THANK YOU!

Tuesday, May 27


Consolation beers were about the only good thing about this day.  We had our championship volleyball game and we lost.  Our team totally self destructs which is frustrating.  We play so well all season and into the playoffs - which is why we always make it to the championship - but then we get all worked up and lose the final game.  Oh well, beach volleyball starts on Tuesday so we won't be down for long!

Wednesday, May 28


We had plans to go to the gym after Nick got home from work but we changed our minds last minute and headed to the tennis courts instead!  It was a cool evening and the Blackhawks were playing in Game 5 so no one was out and we pretty much had the place to ourselves.  It's our goal to play as much tennis as possible this summer!

  24. Hi!! I used to blog faithfully over at BrownEyedBell(e) and then unfortunately went through some life changing events that caused me to stop. I just started blogging again (so have no readership yet -- sadface!) but I always did a Thankful Thursday link up before, and am looking forward to growing mine again. I am so thankful I found your link up so I can also join in. A thankful heart is a happy heart! I truly enjoyed reading yours today. PS - love your style! Your new shorts are cute!
