30 Days Of Thankful Challenge: Part 3

And, here's part 3!

21. a disappointment or fear
I'm  sorry, but this one seems kinda weird to me...How can you be thankful for a fear or disappointment?
Maybe after I read Amy's I'll get an idea of what this one should mean?

22. a book
The Alice series by Phyllis Reynold Naylor
 Their a really good series of books, and they really turned me on to reading.
23. a feeling
Ok, so I'm going with this meaning a 'physical' feeling instead of an 'emotional' feeling, so...
I know this is probably weird...But, I feeling of being cuddled/cuddling something. Maybe that's why I love hugs, and I sleep cuddled up to a body pillow?

24. a photograph
This one...
My grandma, my big brothers, and I at Disney World.

25. a luxury
I'm so thankful for warm water and electricity!
It's a big pain in the butt when you don't have it!
26. a charity
 I don't know...I've never really thought about that before....I guess I'd say The Salvation Army or Toys For Tots. :)

27. a song
I'm thankful for all music, really. (I'm a total music nut! I love music!)

28. a gift
I know I've already said I was thankful for my camera...But I'm going to say it again.
Because, it was a gift that my dad got me, and I love it! :)

29. something in your home
My parents bed.
It's where we all gather in the mornings on the weekend, it's where we all try to pile in the bed to watch tv, or anything like that.
30. the thing you’re most thankful for
My family and friends. 
Their everything to me, and I would do anything for them.

And with that, we have came to the end of the '30 days of thankful' challenge!

I hope y'all have a Happy Thanksgiving! :)

30 Days Of Thankful Challenge: Part 2

So, here's part 2

11. a tradition

Every Christmas morning, my brother and I get up at six in the morning, then go wake up my mom and dad. 
It's something we did ever since I was little.

12. a gadget

My camera.
I think that one is pretty self explanatory...
13. something old
 My animal blanket...
I've had it since I was a baby.

14. something new
 Ok, my room isn't really 'new' but, it's been redone, so it counts! lol

15. a recipe
My Maw's Chicken and Dumplings, and My Nanny's Potato Salad.
Two of my favorite things...Their so yummy! But, no one makes it like they do.

16. an experience
Getting my drivers license.
That was a big thing for me, and I'm thankful I passed the test and got it!

17. a store
I love Target. It's one of my favorite stores. 

18. a saying/quote/scripture
 This is one of my favorites...
"You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it."-Benjamin Mee

19. a favorite piece of clothing
 Right now....My cowgirl boots.
I also love scarfs. :)
20. a keepsake
My Precious Moment. 
I've had her since I was a baby, and I love it.
I plan to pass it down to my daughter some day. (If I ever have one.)

30 Day's Of Thankful Challenge: Part 1

So, Amy started a "30 Days Of Thankful Challenge".....And, I decided to try it....Let's see how this goes. 

1. a person

My dad.
 He's crazy, funny, goofy, loving, and 99% of the time  he knows how to make me smile or laugh when I'm upset.

2. an animal
 My Brownie.

He's a sweetie....When he's not barking.

3. a cozy place in your home.
My messy bed.

It's so warm and comfy, it's the perfect place to relax.

4. a favorite snack

Pineapple! I love Fresh Pineapple. 

5. a place
 Anywhere my family is.

6. a pair of shoes
 Um...Any of these! Their so comfy, and I love that they come in different colors. 

7. a scent
 Any kind of perfume, and the smell of make-up. 
They both remind me of my Grandmothers. :)
8. a restaurant
I love Chick Fil-a!
 And when I say love, I mean I LOOOOVE! Chick Fil-a!
Their food is so yummy. Plus, I'm all about supporting fellow Christians. :) 

9. a blog
 There are a few blogs I read. 
But, I'd say the ones I'm most thankful for are:

10. a time of day
 I don't really have a time of day I'm thankful for....But, I like this time of day.....

I went out side one morning when it was freezing to take this.....


Happy (Almost) Thanksgiving!!!! :D

This is my FAVORITE! time of the year! :)

Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite holidays. Ever.

Who's excited?!?!

ME!!!! *Raises hands*

I'm also super excited for 'Black Friday' and (as my brother and I were calling it) 'Black Thanksgiving' :)

I love going out shopping late at night....I think my dad is dreading it though. lol

So, I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Eat lots of Turkey,
 (Just don't break the scale in your Grandma's bathroom. *Family story. lol* )

Enjoy being with your family,

And don't forget,

Be Thankful!


(PS. I'll most likely do a 'What I'm Thankful For' post soon! :) )
