Thank Day

via Confetti and Cocktails

I love the idea of starting our week off with telling a few of the things that we're thankful for this week. It's easy to get bogged down with ickiness on Mondays. However, I really think that when I try to concentrate on being grateful for the little things, Monday turns into just another day I'm glad to have been given.

Here are a few of the things that I'm grateful for on this first weekday:

Stephen's Flight Arrived to NY Safely: 

The hubs is in New York for work this week and I always get so nervous when either of us has to fly. His flight got there safe and sound and he's due back here Wednesday.

My Mom: 

She came up to NWA for a few days to hang out and spend some quality mom/daughter time together while Stephen is away. I'm so happy : )


It was a dreary weekend here, but this morning, the clouds parted and the sun started to shine. The weather also cooled off and it feels downright wintery out there.

New Highlights:

My stylist gave me the best set of highlights I believe I've ever had on Saturday. When the going gets tough, the blonde get blonder.

Blueberry Crumb Cake:

I use The Pioneer Woman's recipe and it never lets me down. I think mom and I ate half of that darn cake last night...so yum.

New Friends:

I made a new blogger friend last week who I think may be my long lost twin sister : ) You know who you are!

So tell me, what are you thankful for on this beautiful Monday?

Be blessed, lovelies-

    There really is not much that beats a good hair dye ;)

  11. I'm thankful for another blessed day. Thankful for my job, a year ago tomorrow I had been fired from an awful, awful job supporting a CEO (so glad I was cause now I'm in a job I really enjoy-silver lining indeed!), thankful for my sweet husband and family, thankful for my dad picking up my kids from school today, thankful I lost 7.5 pounds in the last two weeks! Life is GOOD and I LOVED this post! Bring on my workout later and a bright Tuesday!

  12. What a sweet post! I totally agree with you about the cake...I would have eaten the whole thing, and you are so right about the blonde getting blonder - sometimes it's all you can do!


  13. Aw, I love the fact the blonde gets blonder- reminds me that my roots need tending to!! XX

  14. What a great attitude! I'm going to try to adopt your attitude about Mondays because mine has been so yuck lately :) Thanks for this post!!
