Thankful Thursday!

Here are a few things I am really thankful for...

1- All my bloogin' buddies! Holy Cow! I am so glad that I am still able to buy your love! It made me feel so good to read all your enthusiastic comments for my give-away. I guess I had better put together something "real nice" for the proize! Just kidding I already know what it is! But thanks a ton for shouting me out...commenting on my blog... being more than just fun, time wasting hobby!. You are so much more!

2. The school computer system that can allow me to check on Mitch's grades at any time. I have to somewhat badger... I mean support him in his school endeavors. I am glad the teachers get their scores in and I can see just how well he is doing.

3. Good friends- Today I had the great opportunity to hang out with some AMAZING old friends. I can neither confirm nor deny the location of this reunion, but it was great to hang out with the forever entertaining Mindi ( that I see all the time... so really this is old hat-KIDDING!) AND our world famous designer friend of CHERELLA, Cheryl Forrester. We talked and laughed and had such a good time. We were three CRAZY girls at one time and now we have 10 kids between us. YIKES! It was such a spontaneous meeting and one that I absolutely enjoyed to the fullest! It was a beautiful fall day, great treats, and fabulous friends! Cheryl even brought prizes... more on that later! Loved this day!

4. Next week my man is going to be working from home because his new office isn't quite ready! I love it when he works from home. I can usually talk him into taking me to lunch..the down side is that I can't watch cartoons and lay on the couch drinking Diet Pepsi like Meg thinks I do... He has traveled quite a bit lately so it will be nice to just have him home.

5. My sisters... I have really been missing my sisters lately. My youngest sister, Brandy, is 30 weeks pregnant and has had to be put on House Arrest ( not the real criminal kind...) because she is going into labor too early. She has a little 2 year old tornado named Jace and has had to rely on my mom, sister, and sister-in-law. I wish I could be closer to help! It makes me happy to know that she has them to help her. Viv, Jody, & Mindy are so helpful and kind to take care of her. Brandy is very independent so it is hard to accept the help. I have great women in my life... I miss them!

6. Fall is here! Did I mention that I love it?

My favorite cartoon to watch during the day is Scooby-Doo. It comes on about noon. . .in case you wanted to tune in.

Tiffany said...

I'm a bad commentor these days, but I'm an avid reader! I love peeking in on you and I bow at your creative feet. Yowza! Love those Halloween stars!

tammy said...

Great list. And picture! May have to steal that this month. I love having Taylor's grades on-line too, and being able to stay on top of him if he doesn't turn an assignment in. Your poor sister. I had to be on bedrest once and at first I was excited thinking I would watch movies and read all day, but then it got really really old. Good luck to her.

Angie said...

Ditto on the grades. Not sure I 100% believe you on the "Caylor at home for a week" deal!! haha Let's talk after about the 2nd or 3rd day! Come on, I know you too well!! ;) Have a super day!

Tiburon said...

Love your list! Love that we are bloogin buddies.

Can't wait to see what I won in your giveaway ;)

Letti said...

I am also thankful for those things too. My oldest is now in middle school and I love the fact that I can keep track of him through web grader. I am thankful that I found your blog.

rachel said...

Misty said...

Awesome list. You always get such great comments and people are excited to win your "stuff" because we know how talented you are.

Oreste said...

Hello Amy. A salute from Rome. Ciao

Liza said...

Wow, that grade system is awesome. I wish we had that!

Tanja said...

Great list and good times!

Have fun hanging out with your man next week! Better get your blogging time in now or else he'll know what you're actually doing all day! (tee-hee)

Love the new logo, you and Tib are just creative geniuses! Might have to hi-jack it and switch between the two, you know to keep things spruced up.

Good luck to your sister-you have an amazing family and I know she'll be in good hands.

MiaKatia said...

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

I love fall too! Did I say I love your page layout? I do!

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

Can you come and follow me? It's all the way at the bottom of my sidebar for some stupid reason! I hope to get it fixed soon!

kourtney said...

Hooray for Fall and pumpkin spice doughnuts!

Shanz said...

You mean I missed the reunion? You are a PUNK!

Poor Brandy- staying home by order of the Doc really bites. I just saw her at the phys off last month. I hope she can hold it a minute. Trust me having a babe at 31 wks is no cake walk. Been there. Hope she does not have to. Tell her good luck.

Husband working from home....hmmm.

Could make "back-peddle" a little more difficult.

But I have no doubt, that you will pull it off. See your naughtiness on Tuesday!

I am a cartoon lover. But HGTV is on 24 hours as of late. I really need to take action and get my house the way I want it... but the kids are on year round and have been home for 2 weeks.

I guess the first step is getting them OUTTA here. Then, I'll paint.
By the way, I fall for Fall, too. Did you love the rain this weekend? There was definitely a chill in the air.
xx!
