My most thankful list...as of right now!!

So in the spirit of upcoming Thanksgiving Weekend here in Canada, I thought I would do a thankful post....a list of things I am most thankful for right now...and I say right now because honestly something could come up in the next 5 minutes that I am even more thankful for...this world is ever changing ladies....:) here it is!!


1) stretchy pants...lulus, la senza spirit, joe fresh I don't care what kind they are, I need them right now....ughhg


2) make-up....I know I'm sorry this is starting to sound like a very superficial post...but my skin is awful right now...yes I am 37 and have an acne problem...it sucks...when I have extremely stressful events happen in my life I get zits....and they last for months...and months...it sucks...so honestly I am so thankful for makeup, so I don't have to look like a red faced pre-teen in front of anyone but myself in the mirror...

3) jumperoos....yep really really thankful for those

4) chemo breaks....my Dad opted out of his last round of chemo and he is "getting his legs back" or so that is what he told me on the phone tonight as he was taking a swig of scotch....nice to have my fav person back to his old self....

5) wine.....red, white....I don't care, I am just thankful for it....

6) my job....my salon....my clients....really I am loving my life right now....my schedule is just so perfect....I love being home with D and I love being at work...perfect balance

7) family, friends...cousins, brothers, Moms, Dads, Aunts...everyone in my life....pure awesomeness right now....

8) pinterest....I'm just in love with it right now....sad but true, I'm thankful for pinning!!

9) autumn....yes the part I love about this season is obvious...it's time to put the arms and legs away for another few months....like seriously, I love it....not so much stress about the shaving, so what if I didn't get to that strength training, no one is going to see these legs for a bit...(it's debatable if anyone will ever see them...but definitely don't have to worry about it until spring fever hits)....yep very thankful for sweaters, jeans, and the whole wardrobe change when Fall hits!!

10) sugar free gum, cause quite frankly if it wasn't for that I would most definitely be partaking in a carbohydrate treat right now

11) my drivers license.....if I didn't have that right now seeing that I am home 4 days out of 7 this little beauty, enables little Miss D and I to get out of the house..... I would surely go LOCO if we couldn't leave right now....(mind you I could live without the car meltdowns she has from time to time, but still its worth it)!!


12)my tassimo...cause coffee(and wine) are the only things getting me through the days right now...

13) so so thankful that "T" finally cleaned the garage...I did not want to do that job, however it was becoming painful on cold, wet nasty days to not be able to pull into our nice dry car resting place....

14) so thankful that "D" is sleeping through the night...now I would be even more thankful if I was finally sleeping through the night...ughhghg

15)and lastly the obvious...my little family of 3....little Miss "D" and Mr "T."...muah!!!

What are you thankful for??

There are a few of those things I hadn't thought of before, but you are right, a driver's license is a pretty good thing!

It's great to take the time to be thankful - and I don't care if it's red or white either!

Loved your post! No one warned me I would get zits as an adult! I'm grateful my kids are all healthy right now, so grateful.

Glad your dad is getting a break. Sending a prayer for him.

On the light side of things... I am very thankful for baseball caps, ponytail holders & headbands. Have you seen my hair?!

On the more sentimental side of things, it would definitely be my family. Even on our worst days, I don't know what I would do without any of them!
