first order of bizz...since next thursday is thanksgiving, i predict we'll all be in some sort of pumpkin pie coma, so let's not worry about writing an oh hey, friday! post. i'm feeling generous and i'm going to give us all a day off. thank me next friday.
secondly...in the spirit of thanksgiving (even though half of my christmas decorations have made an appearance) todays post is going to be all about some of the things i'm thankful for...some obvious, and some not so obvious.
- write up a little post about five things. anythings.
- head back over here and enter your link at the bottom of this post.
- and pretty please don't forget to link back to our blogs and/or add the oh hey, friday! button (found just above) by copying the HTML into the HTML section of your post so that others can link up as well! that's it. now get busy.
1 | FOOD AT MY FINGERTIPS
i can't tell you how many times i've asked my farmer if it was time to get a new fridge. and by asked i mean begged. it's on my wish list every birthday, mother's day, and christmas. (seriously...can we get a new fridge?) i ask for a new fridge because our fridge is too small. first world problems over here. but when i step back and look at my argument for getting a new fridge - we have too much food so obviously we need a bigger fridge...i realize how silly that sounds.
really what i'm saying is i'm so so thankful that we have food in our pantry, fridge, and extra freezer. i'm able to give my turtle snacks and never wonder how i'm going to provide a meal - it's truly something to be thankful for. (i still want a new fridge, though.)
2 | MY FARMER
i've said it once...i've said it at least a dozen times. that farmer of mine is a catch...and everyone knows it. seriously...people have asked me how i got so lucky to nab him. my response? i worked very very very hard. lots of persistence. lots of patience. and then that one time i freaked out on him, broke up with him, cried a lot, and then said "just joking! let's get back together!"
regardless, the girls and me are so very very thankful to call him ours. he works so incredibly hard for us and still manages to make us a priority even with all he has on his plate. that farmer...one of a kind.
3 | AMAZON PRIME + UPS MAN
thank you amazon prime and our wonderful wonderful UPS delivery man for making living an hour from the city a little easier. running low on diapers? amazon prime. stripy straws for your gals birthday party? amazon prime. frye boots? turtle shaped swimming pool? doughnut baking mold? amazon, amazon, amazon. thank you amazon (and the poor ups man who has to drive to our farm at least two days a week).
4 | MY GALS
every single day since sawyer was born i can't even believe i'm the mom of two perfect girls. i mean...how did i get so lucky?
kaye is wild and funny and sweet and sassy. she challenges me every single day, but i know that strong-willed nature, while super challenging now, will serve her well when she's older.
my sweet sweet sawyer. she is undeniably beautiful and she absolutely has my heart...and her farmer's heart too. i'm surprised every day at how kind and soft kaye is with her. kaye is not kind or soft with anything. do i dare say our sawyer is showing signs of a sweet nature? she's calm. she's relaxed. and i'm shocked at just how different she is from newborn kaye.
my best gals. so very very thankful.
5 | DVR + DIRECT TV
the shame. so much shame, but i admit it. the amount of time i've logged in front of the tv these past 3.5 weeks makes me exceptionally thankful for our dvr and direct tv, especially in the middle of the night. it really is the very best time to watch snookie and jwoww. i only speak the truth.
speaking of truth...have you heard of the show chrisley knows best? this show is funny and you should dvr it. see...i'm a truth-speaker.
yes...even some of us are thankful for UPS and DVR. no shame in my game.
