30 Days of Thanks - Day 28

You'll love this I'm thankful for blonde hair dye. I know, I just dyed it for Halloween, but I've decided I don't want to be a brunette anymore, so I'm trying to go back to somewhat my original color. I was starting to look funny with lighter roots than my hair color lol. Now my hair has that funny smell, but I'm happy.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 27

If you are an Ohio State fan, today is a good day. We pounced all over Michigan...woohoo!!!!!!!! If you have never seen where the band comes out in the field and does the script, it's a must watch. I could never keep it straight, these are some very talented band members.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 26

Yeah for Black Friday sales!! Today I Christmas shopped for myself *shame on me I know*. MPT & CILM were having sales, and I also had to stop by Weeds & Wildflowers. I love the "Sweet and Simple" line that they design and I'm desperately trying to catch up on kits. I also stopped off at Peppermint Creative to pick up some really great templates and some embellishments. A day of shopping from my desk...nothing better...well, except for shoe shopping lol.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 25

Today I am very thankful that I'm not cooking a turkey dinner! Or cooking anything for that matter!! I still had to work, but when I got home, we met my inlaws and went to Cracker Barrel for a very tasty turkey dinner. I'm very blessed that they treat me as if I was their own ♥

30 Days of Thanks - Day 24

After being at the shop, I was able to come home and play in PSP til someone heard my wish that I was craving Mexican. Thanks to my mind reader *s*

Mother in Law had brought over a Macaroni Grill lasagna dinner that she bought when she went to Sam's Club. One of the stick it in the oven, an hour later, dinner's ready. That in enough is something to be thankful for!!

Definately thankful for a good day at work today!

30 Days of Thanks - Day 20

Today was a great day! Hubby and I were up early to run errands and he insisted that I have to try a hot chocolate from McDonald's. Thanks to him I have a new addiction lol. After he pried the cup from my hands we drove up to Cleveland to go to a motorcycle show. It was the first year for it, but it was pretty neat. Lots of bikes there. Here's a pic of a gas tank that was on one of my favorites.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 19

Since Scott is out of town, his parents took me for Chinese (yes twice in one week lol) so I wouldn't have to eat dinner alone. Awwwww.

After work was a peaceful two hour nap. Ahhhh...I'm thankful for my comfy bed and pillow.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 13

I spent my whole day with hubby enjoying an unseasonably warm temperature. He was at the farm, so he called me first thing in the morning to see if I wanted to come down and take some pictures. Who am I to pass that up?! We watched the deer play around for a few hours, then we went to Cabelas, and enjoyed a wonderful late dinner at Cheddar's. It was a three hour drive home, but it was so worth it. Here's a picture of two does sticking their tongues out!!

30 Days of Thanks - Day 12

I'm grateful for my furry little minions that keep me warm when I'm cold. They also remind me that I'm always loved. Ok, well, I'm really reminded that I'm the purrrveyor of food, but you know. Here's a picture of what Miaya looks like when I refuse to leave my computer to feed her lol. Doesn't she look pleased?

30 Days of Thanks - Day 7

Today was the first snowfall for the 2010 winter season. The first one is always so fun, fluffy, and almost magical because it came at night. And yes, I did go outside and try to catch snowflake on my tongue =) So, for today and only today, I am thankful for the snowflakes.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 6

Today I am thankful the the fact that I have a home to clean. I may gripe about it, but I am thankful that even though the economy sucks, I am able to keep a roof over my head.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 4

What am I thankful for today? The mass amounts of compliments I have received since I decided to dye my hair dark brown after being blonde for the last 37 years. It's definately a change, but I do like it =)

30 Days of Thanks - Day 3

Today I am thankful for my day off! I spend Wednesday's at the family machine shop doing cleaning, any paperwork, and whatever else I need to catch up on. I love the extra time I get to spend with Scott.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 2

I'm thankful to my inlaws that treat me like their daughter. They made dinner for Scott and I, and it was absolutely delicious. It was a nice break from cooking each night. When they make dinner for us, I always like to do the dishes and help clean the kitchen to show my appreciation.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 1

I wanted to share the things in my life that I'm most thankful for since this is the time when we should remember to be thankful and not ungrateful for all the daily blessings that are presented to us. I saw this idea on a few other blogs, and sometimes I do take things for granted, and I thought this might help me appreciate the simple things more. So, for hopefully all of November, I will remember to post all the blessings that I have in my daily life.

Day 1 - Even though there are days when my job drives me absolutely insane, I am still thankful, especially after a year of unemployment, that I do have a job to wake up to every Monday morning. I work with some amazing people, so I count them in this blessing.

It's Only Been Two Years...

Only two lol. I had this blog set up in 2009 for my 365 project and you can see how far that got. I took the pictures for like three months but never posted any of them. I at least had good intentions.

You're prolly wondering then why am I posting now and how did I get through the dust and cobwebs. I've always kept a blog on my website, but I haven't kept up with that lately either (gee, I'm sure you're shocked by that little tidbit). Since I have my design blog, I figure nobody wants to read my daily babble, they're there for the tags, not the ramblings of a delirious blonde. When things happen during the day, I do at times want to share it with everyone, so I've decided to start blogging again. This way I can go on and on about the things that are important to me: my family, photography, scrapping, recipes, you get the idea. So keep your eyes peeled for lots of good things!!
