Today I am Thankful For...

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and its the time of year to count your blessings and think about what you are truly thankful for. First things that probably come to mind for most is to be thankful for family, friends, good health, their job, etc. I have seen this all over facebook the "today am thankful for ______".

This morning I went to Starbucks and got an Eggnog Latte. Some baristas burn the eggnog and it just doesn't taste yummy. This morning, the barista got it spot on and I was thankful for that.

Then I started thinking...what other "little things" am I thankful for?

I am thankful for....

1.) Un-burnt eggnot lattes
2.) That my eyebrows are not too dark this way when I need a brow wax, its not THAT obvious.
3.) I am also thankful that I do not have dark hair on my arms because my arm hair can get long (I typically cut my arm hair with scissors, I know, its weird).
4.) I am thankful for any readers who are still reading this blog post
5.) I am thankful for the person who came up with the saying "i after e except after c." If it weren't for him/her, I'd be an even worse speller.
6.) I am thankful for rap (but not too hardcore rap, more softcore rap). It gets the blood pumping through my veins in the morning
7.)  I am thankful that Charlie only woke up once last night. We have been co-sleeping for the past 2 weeks and Charlie has been loving it but we have not. We are trying to break him of the cycle of waking up and wanting to come in our bed. Its working. Thanks poo for your work on this while I've been catching up on my beauty sleep downstairs.
8.) I am thankful for Uggs. Uggs makes it almost acceptable to leave your house in slippers
9.) I am thankful for my unplanned c-section. I feel like I got a "get out of giving child birth jail free card." I got the easy way out for sure. I'm not sure I could have done it and respect all y'all that have done it
10.) I am thankful for blogs. I have learned so much about infertility, crafts, baking/cooking, parenthood and I have also read blogs where I didn't learn an ounce of anything, and sometimes those are the best blogs.

What are you thankful for?
