Thankful Thursday - 3/10/11



What a week this has been!! It really seems like it's been two weeks rolled into one. Hubby has been working like crazy going into his busy season. With all this early warm weather, he's got plenty to keep up with so we didn't get much of a weekend together. Every day since Saturday has felt like Friday... like my internal clock is telling me it's time for some family time! But we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of this weekend, as we'll finally get some much needed time together. :)

OK, here we go! There are always "big things" in my life that I'm thankful for every single day. {Hubby, Baby A, our home, jobs, and food on the table, etc.} So, from day to day I try to focus on "the little things" to help me appreciate even the small blessings in life, and so that I won't be so quick to take things for granted. I think it helps me see the big picture, and keep a positive attitude! :)


Without further adieu, these are the "little things" I'm thankful for this week!

1. Print Media! Despite shipping issues, my new return address labels are finally in. No more writing by hand, yay!





2. Mail Scale! I can't believe I've waited this long to get one of these. It is seriously shaving hours of time off my week when it comes to shipping, etc. I highly recommend getting one if you have any decent amount of outgoing shipping happening in your house. Well worth the $30 for sure!



3. The Dollar Bins at Target. I never look. I dunno what it is, but I just never do. I'm not good at the bin digging, I really think that's what it is. I like things nice and neat and orderly when shopping, haha! However, something pulled me over yesterday while doing a little pre-wedding shopping for Baby A, and I totally scored!! I bought her 4 Sesame Street books, 4 bathtub books, and 2 animal books for only a DOLLAR! Seriously, who can beat that? Oooh, oooh! I also got these super cute magnetic list pads and a big ol' pile of notecards {and the box!} for only a dollar too. {sigh} I love cheap stuff. :)



4. Plans this weekend! Since having the baby, Hubby and I have become even more hermit-y than we are already predisposed to be. That coupled with the fact that we are both working so darn much just doesn't make for alot of free time. So, needless to say, we don't go out much at night... sleep prevails! ;) This weekend a good friend of ours is getting married to his long-time girlfriend, and guess what? The hermits are getting out of the house Saturday night! We are so excited for them to begin their new journey, and who doesn't love a wedding? Plus, as an added bonus, I get to play dress up with my sweet Baby A. <3

5. Linky Parties! I love, love, LOVE linky parties because they are such a great way to show of all the fun projects you've been working on, and get new ideas and inspiration from other people's projects. You guys have been inviting me all over the web this week, I have loved coming to see your blogs and linking up at your parties!

Since things are growing so fast, I have been working on a new tab {see it up top?} to house all of the wonderful linky parties I visit every week. Now you can all go have some fun! As far as the page goes, it's a work that will constantly be in progress. So, if you've got a linky party you want me to go check out, let me know! I'd love to come for a visit and add your button to my party list!


I hope that everyone is having a fantastic week and that you all are thankful for all the blessings in your life, both big and small. :)


XOXO

I love, love, LOVE your address labels! I get so many from organizations I donate to that I haven't even had a moment to think about my own. But, seeing your, I think it may be time!

Thanks for adding my button to your fantastic page! I'm still working on the code box...it's finals week and I have acquired a lovely sinus infection, so my brain is refusing until next week. :) Thanks again! ~Brandy

Aww, poor thing, I totally feel for you! I hope you're feeling better soon! :)

Check this out: I got something like 300 labels from Vistaprint for $3. THREE DOLLARS! Seriously great deal, and I didn't have to do any designing. They had so many templates it was hard NOT to find something I liked. And for $3 who really cares if it matches my banner? LOL

I love your Thankful Thursday - I try to remember that it is often the little things that I cherish more than a big grand gestures (though I don't mind those from time to time!) :)

I also wanted you to know that I've nominated you for the Stylish blogger award! Check out the details here:
