so i suck at writing every day. it's just not gonna happen. but i'll do my best to get some more thankamonies out there before november ends...

today i'm thankful for weekends!!! having a full-time fairly stressful job has really created this extremity in my life. weekdays are really hard while weekends are really not hard. they're wonderful and oh so needed.

this weekend was what i call perfect. tyler and i didn't really do much at all. we spent friday with his dad and sister, jamie at gloria's little italy and byu basketball. saturday we saw "love happens" and had wendy's. today we had family dinner at my parents' for my brother's birthday. what you'd call an average weekend, but what i call perfect. as they said in "love happens", life is not so much about what you do, but with whom you're doing it.

and don't forget sleeping in! i only write this because of this strange phenomenon. i can not sleep in! well, i feel like i am. i wake up between eight and nine and that feels like sleeping in. but i know it's still early. especially because tyler is still sleeping like a baby. but i'm wide awake! this morning i woke up at eight a.m. and just laid in bed thinking for an hour! then i finally stared at tyler long enough for him to wake up, shake his head at me, and turn over. ha.



Wow. I'm ridiculous. The day after I said I would write every day and voice my gratitude, I forgot. So once again, we'll try this out.

Today I'm thankful for one thing: Tyler.

He's often the very best thing I have to look forward to every day.


Do You Believe in Me?

Do you believe in the youth of today? Well you better, because they believe in themselves. Believe in them.

Happy Thanksgiving!

November is not only turkey month, but more importantly thanksgiving month. As my wonderful friend Jenna reminded me today, I have been slacking on the blogging. So I'm going to pick it up this month and my goal for the rest of November is that every day I will write about one thing I am thankful for. Or at least one thing...Today I am thankful for many things!

1. I am thankful for women. It is so inspiring, healing, brightening, just simply delighting to be around fabulous women. This evening I attended a bridal shower for my friend Sarah. Such great women were there and I feel like I was renewed from their presence. Sarah, if you read this, I know you loved my present! Don't be ashamed girl. You will love it ;)

2. I am thankful that I was happy today at school. Teaching is just dang tough sometimes. It's a heavy burden to carry. But today I just felt a spark in my spirit that helped me get through the day with happiness! And let me tell you, things are much more enjoyable at school when I'm in a good mood.

3. I am thankful for those peanut butter cookies I/Betty Crocker made that await me so wonderfully at lunch every day at school.
