I’m not very good at, you know, getting posts out on the actual holiday… but I figure being thankful is being thankful and whether it happened last Thursday or happens this Thursday doesn’t really matter. Right? So here it goes, 20 things that I’m thankful for at the start of this holiday season:
1.) A husband that loves me, shares a love of cheese and pineapple, will let me watch hours of Diners, Drive In’s and Dives and who happens to be one of the greatest people I know. I heart him.
2.) Days where you just have to eat your feelings — and friends/family that are more than happy to join in.
3.) The most ridiculous, ill-mannered, sweet dog ever.
4.) Cheese. What else is there to say?
5.) A glass, or 5, of good wine.
6.) The best friends in the world. Ones who repeatedly remind you of all those times you laughed until you peed your pants.
7.) Knowing that rum cake is less than a month away. Oh, yes. Holiday desserts.
8.) The ability to spend a night snuggled in blankets watching movies from the 90’s (Ahem, Father of the Bride 2).
9.) A house, while needing immeasurable amounts of duct tape & love, to hang Christmas lights on.
10.) The best family a girl could ask for.
11.) My health and the health of those around me.
12.) Christmas – I just love it. Christmas trees, twinkle lights, joy.
13.) Pinterest. The amount of things I’ve learned and the amount of time I’ve wasted are both astounding.
14.) Red shoes because they can inevitably make any outfit glamorous.
15.) *Fingers Crossed* That we’re done car shopping for several years. Two new cars in less than 1 year is a bit much.
16.) Chapstick. My chapped lips live for you, and my addiction to you means I couldn’t go more than a day without you.
17.) All the amazing things that happened in 2011 – engagement, wedding, travel, new house, and the list goes on.
18.) A safe, warm (though Christian and I differ greatly on the definition) and nice place to call home.
19.) Truffle oil – on french fries, on burgers, in mac n’ cheese, in anything really…
20.) Snowflakes. But only when they’re falling. Once they’ve hit the ground they might as well be the scourge of the planet.
I truly am thankful for everything I have, all the friends and family in my life and so much more. Hope you had a fabulous Thanksigving (only a week late)!
