it’s the little things in life…

It’s Frriiiiiidayy!  I hope y’all have had a great week!  Today is my last full day on the beach, and then we’ll be headed back to TN tomorrow.  I’ll miss the beach for SURE, but I am looking forward to seeing my babies  and catching up on all of your lovely blogs!

Last week, I saw a cool idea on Janetha’s blog and decided to be a copycat.  I promise, it’s not really another survey where you learn all sorts of disturbing/weird/things-that-make-you-roll-your-eyes things about me.  It’s a different type of questionnaire, and it’s 26 little things that I’m thankful for in life.  

a – animals – I love my animals so very much, and pretty much all other ones too.  Especially baby animals. 🙂

b – blog friends – seriously – my life has been changed for the better because of all my best blog friends!

c – cottage cheese in my smoothies – packs a protein punch and makes it super creamy

d – dslr camera – LOVE IT

e – exercise – makes everything better and keeps me healthy!

f – friends – both the show and my actual friends

g – garden – I love being able to walk outside and get all the vegetables that I need (and that anyone else needs)

h – hot yoga – I’ve been going consistently for the past three weeks and I can see and feel a difference – anyone up for a headstand contest?

i – ice cream – pure deliciousness and can make even the worst day better

j – juicer – I seriously cannot get enough of fresh juice!

k – keurig – especially during the winter when I need that hot coffee on the way to school

l – love – God’s love, Daniel’s love, family’s love, friend’s love, puppies’ love, cat’s indifference love

m – macy the murano – it’s a great suv and I’m grateful that I have a dependable car

n – nineties station on pandora- I can’t get enough

o – obstacles – not always thankful for these in the present, but I can usually look back and see how they made me stronger

p – people – I cannot imagine my life without my family and friends – I also hope that I can show God’s love to other people

q – quick typing skills (I misspelled quick as I typed that – gotta love irony) – these come from high school keyboarding and three years typing away at a law firm

r – running – I am trying my best to become a runner and I am slowly starting to enjoy it

s – sunrises and sunsets – always a reminder of God’s beautiful creation

t – travel – I am incredibly thankful that we have the opportunity to travel every now and then (it would be every weekend if it was up to me!)

u – ugly ducking – a good story as a kid with lasting life lessons 

v – victoria’s secret semi annual sale

w – wondering – I love dreaming big!

x – xray vision – out of all my super powers, it’s definitely one of my favorites 😉

y – YOU – thank you so much for coming to my little blog and blessing me with your thoughts and encouragement!  You have no idea how much I love and appreciate y’all!

z – zumba! I love teaching zumba and hiphop, and it has connected me with many awesome people!

much love, 


so tell me…

    I did this on Janetha’s blog and had fun writing my comment! I will do one for the first letter of my name, my husband’s name, and my dogs’ names.

    A – apricot sorbet (ate this last night with fresh raspberries)
    B – breakfast of the Swiss variety (baguette, cheese, meats, and homemade jams)
    M – mountains in Switzerland
    F – friends, specifically the ones I am traveling with right now
