Thankful for swag!

So since I have been having a pity party for one lately, I decided that I am going to let this get the best of me NO longer!!! I WILL NOT be a Debbie Downer just because I have been pressed for time and am unable to run whenever I want. I am going to put on my big girl pants and move along! In light of that I have decided that I need to shed more light for myself, and apparently all of you, as to the things I am thankful for.

Our tw
o 5 year-old nieces (pictured left....aren't they so cute?!) have a tradition they do after they say their prayers at night. They say 5 things they are thankful for. I am going to try to do this every night or so. I figure if I set my sights on the good things in my life then the stressful stuff will not take over! So here are my 5 things:

1. I'm so thankful for my hubby this morning who woke up with Emma at 4am so that I could get a few more hours sleep. She has had a bad stuffy nose this weekend because she is getting her two front top teeth.

2. I'm tha
nkful that I was able to see many old college teammates this weekend including my old roomie who has been living in India for 2 years!

3. I just love any swag and I got swag from just going to the game on Saturday. I didn't play due to really (like trip to the ER) hurting my back this August and not wanting to repeat that! But one of my coaches was so great to have saved me a goodie bag! We got a college mug and a college shirt that says "Welcome to scenic Wenham" with a picture of the student center! Hilarious if you saw our very small school!
4. This picture leads me also to my fourth thing I am thankful for...I fit into a pair of prepregnancy jeans today!! Yippee!!!!! Please ignore the pile of sneakers behind me...this is supposed to be a happy post! :-)
5. I am so thankful today for the family that I have been blessed with! I have an awesome husband and amazing little girl. Plus I get to have an amazing Mom and Dad and sister who support me through everything....not to mention 2 nieces and brother-in-laws!

I hope you are thankful today! I do have a downer with running but I am going to save that for I am focusing on thankfulness!


  1. You are awesome and always make me smile!

  2. Great post. I think we all need to think of things we are thankful for, instead of just seeing the negative.

  3. a great 'habit' to get into. congrats on the pre-preg jeans! it's always exciting to fit into old sizes, well, when they are smaller sizes :)
