Thankful Thursday...

This is what I am soooo thankful for this week:


1. Something besides bills in the mail box...

Exhibit A- I won a blog giveaway on Chrissy's blog... YEAH!It is a labeler... as soon as my children go back to school I am going to get serious about organizing my house. I am going to label anything and everything thanks to this awesome prize! I have already started so I can remember what all the important things in my life are...Thanks to Chrissy and the random luck I had that day.

Exhibit B- My cute friend, Shannon, from long ago that I have just found again through blogging sent me the greatest notebook... She had one in her purse and she pulled it right out to write down my phone number and I was SOOOO impressed. She knew I liked Anne Taintor and that I loved her little handy purse notepad so she sent me one ( like the print below) in the mail...with a nice card even! It made my day! Thanks Shan!

Exhibit C- My darling cousins sent me a box of joy as a thank-you for the weekend they stayed at my house and we partied hearty... inside was a pair of Modbe jeans ( yummy for the fall), a darling swimsuit, and some slipper flip-flops that are complete heaven! Talk about awesome things...they are welcome back ANYTIME! NO photo here... just watch for a hot little pic of me in the jeans coming sometime this fall... YEAH RIGHT!


Exhibit D- A darling card from my neighbor. I took her a glitter cup and a diet Coke the day her son entered the MTC and told her to "drink her way through her sorrow". She wrote the nicest little note EVER and actually sent it in the mail! I need to be more thoughtful and send notes... the mail is a great place when there are no bills!

On a side note...

2. I am thankful for my family & Friends in So. Utah- I had such a great time last weekend- There are so many people that always come out and support us in whatever we do... I do think it helps that we serve yummy treats and that Viv is hilarious to be with... but it is so fun to see friends and family! It was fun to talk to Kaye, Jeri, Susan, Chris, Linford, my dad's sisters, both grandmas! I am lucky that these people are in my life- they make me who I am!
IT WAS A GREAT WEEK... I HAVE MANY GOOD PEOPLE & THINGS IN MY LIFE... I AM THANKFUL!

Amy, I can't tell you how glad I am that I have you as one of my friends! No one understands Southern Utah and the "club" ladies, quite like we do! ;)
Glad you liked the notebook!
