Thankful Thursday

These are the things I am thankful for this week-

1. 2 movies in 1 week... it is almost too good to be true! I almost fulfilled one of my biggest dreams to see one movie right after the other. I went to Mama Mia with my boyfriend neighbors & then The Dark Knight with my main man. A great time WAS had by all!

2. All three of my kiddies home! Jacks has been in St. George with my family- living the party life of a rockstar... house boat trips to Lake Powell, Poolside Pizza Parties, Sleepovers with cousins, and wearing the same pair of athletic shorts for a week solid! SWEET! It was so good to get Jacks home... I did threaten my kids if they start to fight... there will be hell to pay!

3. Late night projects with my friends that turn into a giggle fest... I just got home from a little late night apron. glitter fest with my cute friend & neighbor Sandi. We laughed at nothing, drank Diet Pepsi and had a great time getting a few little project done. I made a darling apron and a few glitter cups.... so fun and she is such a great friend!

4. BASEBALL IS OVER! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Until next January I don't have to worry about anything baseball and don't have go to anymore baseball games until next spring. They are fun ... but I am soooo glad to move on to the next season.

5. FOOTBALL season is here! Nothing like football to usher in my FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE season... FALL! I love watching Mitch play football, love going to football games, and I don't even mind watching it on TV... plus Super Bowl Sunday is always an occasion to have a party.

6. My Family... Let's get cheezy for a minute... I am thankful for them probably because it is 12:30 a.m. and they are all asleep...perfect angels! I really am glad that I have such a great husband and that I have the opportunity to be a mom to 3 pretty darn good kids.

7. I am also thankful that I did the 7 peaks thing today and DON"T have to go again this summer to ANY waterpark. I am a little freaked out by all the bare feet and stale water and people at the water park. Too many bottoms in little pools. I guess I am a waterpark freakshow ( in more ways than one...have you seen me in a bathing suit?) but I do not love going there. I went, I rode, I am done for this year! Yahoo!

8. I am VERY THANKFUL for all the blurkers who were threatened by my bossy self and left me a comment on my Mama Mia post. You all rock.... Now- go ahead leave me another one. Thanks a ton! See you give me an inch and I take a foot! Thanks again... I'll visit you and comment too!

I gotta agree with the whole water park thing. I don't mind being at the pool, but huge water slides kinda make me nervous!

Holy cow girl! I had to go check out how many comments you got on the last post.

Isn't it nice when you can get the whole waterpark thing over with? Then you don't have to listen to the kids whining to go. Then if they ask me if we can go again, I say in an extra positive voice, "Maybe so!" when I'm really thinking, "There is no way in hell!"

Fabulous thankful list. I should start doing this someday.

Tanja said...

Who would of guessed that a Mama Mia post would produce so many comments? You, go girl!

I love your list. You make me laugh about the water parks. I hate looking at people's gross, ungroomed feet and zits on people's backs and anything and everything else when it comes to being half naked at a public place. It gives me the willies!!!

Melissa said...

Wow! Two movies in one week? Go girl.

rachel said...

Sounds like you are having a great week! Happy Thursday :)

Misty said...

This is such a great list. You are thankful for a lot - I bet your prayers are long! PS - your background is totally perfect and cute for you. Don't ever change it!

Angie said...

Holly H. said...

Great Post! I also loved The Dark Knight! I usually hate those kind of movies, but they sure did a good (freaky) job with that one! I too love football so much... (see my thankful thursday) and I love the fall! It just feels good!

Glad you got so many comments. See how much everyone loves you!?!

Mindi said...

Suka and Brittany said...

I remember the days when I did 2, 3, 4? movies in one week! Now i've seen four movies since 2005!

Michael said...

I'm NOT thankful that you have gotten lazy in your blogging. You are down to about two per week. I don't really want to blog, I just want to leave lame Smart A$$ comments on other blogs.
Tell your friend Mindi that she may as well write the Jax story today and make it an even 10 blogs for the day.

Nothing like taking a dip in Ass Soup!

Kami said...
