Thankful on Thursday

For friends near and far. There's nothing like 'em... I'm biased, but I think I've got some of the best. Each friendship is so unique but fits perfectly into life. Cool how that works.

For those who serve or have served our country. Thank you ALL♥

For my health, and for my health insurance. It's easy to forget how good we have it sometimes, but then you see a bill with how much you would have paid without it... it's humbling!

For crockpots. Seriously- I love my crockpots (yes, plural) more than any human should. Last year's Friendsgiving I had both of mine going and could have used a third!




For inside jokes or memories that make me laugh time and time again. I love those stories or moments you recall with your friends that are just as funny as the first time they happened.

For football... don't judge me. It's a passion, a past-time and it pays the bills people!

For our supportive families. Y'all rock.

For our Etsy shop which gives me another creative outlet and for the success we've had with it thus far. It's fun to step away from the office grind and get to play with my design programs, fun colors and create new goodies to sell.

For gel manicures that last for weeks and the friends who treat you to them ;) I'm really thinking my nails deserve a manicure more often.

For delicious snacks that are better-for-you than the mainstream ones. CVS sent me their new line of chips and salsa and I've got to say, I was impressed.


Tastes just as good (if not better) than many big names brands and has no artificial flavors, no preservatives and their chips are all low-sodium as well! I've served the multi-grain and kale/spinach chips and salsa at our most recent football get together and got only good feedback from our guests!
I'll admit I was leary of the kale chips but they had a unique flavor that paired well with our mild salsa. Two thumbs up for Gold Emblem at CVS and for not feeling as guilty munching my way through each and every Bengals game ;)
*Not paid to say this, but I did get the snacks in exchange for an honest review!

It's good to be thankful for things big and small! :) Happy Thursday!

  3. Yes to every single thing you just said, especially friends and family and for those who serve our country. And I don't think that there's such a thing as too many crock pots! I've been using mine like crazy this fall.

  5. I realized I was an old, old woman when I would spend the day proud and joyful that dinner was cooking in the crockpot and I wouldn't have to worry about it later. :)

  6. So many things to be thankful for!!! I complain about how much medical things cost and prescriptions and stuff but you are right....when you see how much things would actually be without insurance it is insanity!!!

  8. Have you ever considered one of those buffet style 3 crockpots? We were gifted one but it has yet to be used but I'm told it'll save the day when it does get used.

  11. I always think about how thankful I am for insurance when I see what it WOULD have cost. That being said - nothing bothers me more than working out insurance details. UGH. I always try to justify my Mexican food obsession by saying, "Well, chips and salsa aren't awful for you."
