Thankful Thursday: on time!

Today has been an extremely looooong day and I NEED this post to remind me that, in reality, I have a LOT to be thankful for. I might be finding super small things to be thankful for this week but it is often the small things that count, right?

1) All the stores near us are completely sold out of candy corn...which means i have stayed true to my hopes of not buying any more :0 (see, i told you these thankful things would be small!)

2) We received 60 free photos and 3 free Christmas cards from Shutterfly and 30 free Christmas cards from Kodak Gallery! Woohoo! Getting some of our Christmas cards ready so far in advance is a huge bonus!
3) Being featured on the fun blog, Mama Notes. Thanks, Samantha!

4) A free ride on the Pink Pig today at Macy's! Thanks to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta for the ticket and preview and party...and make sure you check out {life with} Cutie Face for a fully-featured post!

5) Finally being able to attend our church's service this coming Sunday--we have either been out of town or working in the nursey so we can't wait to finally listen to our pastor speak "live" (as opposed to streaming from our podcast!)
6) A chance to hang out with the twin and cousin R while at the Pink Pig!

7) Cutie Face's Grandpa (and my father-in-law) came to visit for a few hours on Tuesday and gave us some really cute shots of Cutie Face to use for our Christmas cards! Yay! (and all i have to say is...what a difference a REAL camera makes! check out that quality!)
8) That, when Cutie Face finally (and I mean...FINALLY) fell asleep in the car on our way to the Pink Pig, she actually stayed asleep while i made a quick stop at Babies 'R' Us...despite being transported into the shopping cart and back into the car seat...which means she actually got a 40 minute nap today! (yes, that really is her in the stroller)

9) Our neighborhood Yahoo! Group is so incredibly helpful and generous! Today I bought two great kiddo toys for Cutie Face for uber cheap--a Little People dollhouse and an incredibly vintage Little Tikes' Washer and Dryer (+ironing board) set. So fun! I love recycling toys--so eco (both in the ECOnomical and ECOfriendly sense)

Note: this is not my photo...i left the toy at my parents' house so that the cousins could have another fun thing to play with while visiting Mimi and Poppy!


I'd LOVE to hear what you are thankful for this week!
