Thankful Thursday

Bedtime is coming early for me tonight, so I can kick this cold/allergy/sinus bug before it takes over my body. Plus tomorrow night is the Sugarland concert, which I've been excited about for months now. Can't wait to sing out loud, drink some cold ones, and enjoy a night out with the ladies!

On this Thankful Thursday, I'm thankful for ... and I'm keeping it simple (don't I always?) .....

1. The hug and kiss I was able to give to Abby before she went to sleep tonight. I finally mustered up the strength to watch the memorial slideshow for Baby Cohen, and well ... let's just say I didn't hold up too well. Tears took over, sobbing began, and I silently said a prayer for his family and for our sweet Abby. I'm so thankful I have her to hug and kiss each day.

2. The new house is finally coming together. Appliances are getting delivered, landscaping is almost done, carpet and paint are set for next week. If all goes well, we could start the moving process in just two weeks!

More pics to come!

3. The hubs and I have been able to make decisions on the new house without arguing. Its been so nice to just agree on certain things. I was honestly thinking it would be a bit crazier than it has been. Having the same taste on furniture, appliances, and paint colors definitely help!

4. Neighbors who care and are there to help. Today didn't start off too well ... we were late getting out the door this morning, then I locked my keys in my car at Abby's daycare. Thanks to Joe - he went to our house, grabbed my spare keys, and brought them to me.

5. Modern Family. You all know the show. It's hilarious and I'm so ashamed to say I just watched for the first time last night. Can't wait for Wednesdays!

The fridge looks amazing in your gourmet (is that spelled right - looks silly) kitchen. I can't wait to bring the girls over this weekend to see it!

How exciting about your house. I bet it is going to be gorgeous. I can't wait to see more.
Baby Cohen... My heart breaks for his family. I haven't watched the slide show but can be certain I will cry like a baby when I do.
Your right, we are truly blessed to have a healthy baby to kiss at night. Prayers for his family!

Oh I love love love Modern Family! Such a good show! How are you feeling? I hope better! Now that we're back from our weekend away, I'm feeling a very scratchy throat...hope it's not a cold or sinuses! Ugh, feels like I just can't get well and stay that way. Your new house looks amazing! So jealous! Have fun when y'all go to Texas, the book was a great idea (at least I thought, especially the pictures!) :)
