The Great back {11.23.12}

Last week just got away from me, and before I knew it my mom was asking me what happened to The Great List on Friday.  I explained, in too many words, what was consuming all my time...all negative stuff, go figure.

This week I'm sharing my gratitude again!  With Thanksgiving yesterday, I am sure many of you reflected on what you are grateful for.  This week's list format is a little different, more of a general list of all the things, big and small, that I am thankful for. 


I am thankful...
  • I have an understanding and loving husband.  Happy three years to us!
  • Leila has a daddy that plays "shopping" with her, tackles her onto the couch, and thinks she is the most amazing girl in the world.
  • to have a wonderful family, both here in San Diego and back in Chicago.
  • for fall sunsets over the water.
  • that Leila is such a happy and fun person to be around.
  • to be pregnant with a healthy baby boy.
  • for the stores that open before 10 am (like Michael's, Target, and Vons).
  • I have the ability and desire to stay active and healthy during this pregnancy.
  • that we are able to make our budget work while I stay at home.
  • my mom and dad come to visit us multiple times a year. 
  • for the friendships I have made in San Diego and for the ones I still have  after many years of living apart.
  • that my grandmother is home from the hospital after a recent fall.
  • to live to live near the beach, a dream I've had since childhood.
  • I am able to laugh at myself, my mistakes, and learn from them.
  • my 12 year old Toyota Corolla still runs like a champ.
  • to be staying home for the holidays, where I can still wear flip flops and won't see any snow.
  • for coffee...Keurig specifically.
  • that we can buy the things we need and many of the things we want.
  • to live just a block away from my sister.
  • I am learning to let go of the little things, but not take the little things for granted.
 I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
