Peanut butter M&M’s, Butter London Nail Laquer, My Parents, My Husband and my innate ability to make people laugh even when all we want to do is break down & have a power cry in the parking lot of Dairy Queen….

@engleman10513:  I was just thinking about this yesterday. I’ve had a crummy few days and I just stopped to think about how lucky I really am.
I am thankful for : Being employed and able to provide for myself, my best friend, my family (especially my mom), and my amazing fiance that loves me even when I am being…me 🙂

that both sides of our families and all our friends are SO awesome and supportive and drama-free!  It’s making this wedding planning a breeze – well as much as could be expected.  Apart from that, offhand:

  • my 14 year old Toyota Tacoma that is still rocking hard
  • my adorable little house with high wood ceilings and big windows and a giant yard and a very low mortgage payment
  • that my FI is starting his new job today and we’ll be about 20 times richer than we ever have before!!!!!!!  (We’ve been really really poor, lol)
  • that I live somewhere where I don’t have to deal with traffic ever and can be mountain biking in the mountains in 15 minutes
  • that my work doesn’t restrict my internet abilities 😉

I’m thankful for my FI’s good bill of health. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer when he was 19 years old and just had his last follow up appointment today; 10 years later. No sign of anything abnormal and has been given a clean bill of health! 🙂

There is so much. I try and take a moment to reflect on how much I do have every day rather than focuses on what I have yet to achieve.

  • My FI
  • Our furbaby
  • Our home
  • My family – all seven million of them (or so it feels some days)
  • My health
  • Chocolate
  • My success
  • Airplanes (I’m terrified of them, but I love to travel)
  • Wine
  • Ice cream

I was thinking about that this weekend since FI is gone and I’m left to my own devices… I’m thankful for:

An amazing man who loves me for everything that I am and am not. Truly.

An awesome place to live, and that I don’t have to worry about how I will pay my rent if I lose my job

A Corpse Reviver No2 (cocktail)

Our two beautiful children (dogs) who are my companions through thick and thin

Central AC (its so hotttt)

Awesome friends who know what I need when I don’t

Living a life I never dreamt I could in a city that I only ever imagined calling home

Oh so much! My FI, our home, our two amazing puppies, my job that drives me a little crazy, the opportunity for paid study, our health, my best friend who never fails to make me laugh and butterscotch ice cream.

My wonderful family and husband

My amazing friends

The salaries my husband and I are fortunate enough to make

My opportunity to get paid to do my masters

My kind boss who makes working a pleasure

My supervisors who are supportive

My family again

The ability to slowly make head way into paying off our debts

That my husband somehow just knows I’ve had a bad day even when we haven’t spoken all day and shows up after work with a slab of chocolate

That’s just the tip of the iceberg I guess
