Thankful Thursday

Remember back in the day when I used to do these on a weekly basis?  I even had a button and all!  Well those days were a lot more grateful and we need to get back to those roots around here.  So I'm welcoming thankful Thursday with open arms.
I am thankful for...
  • Friends and Family.  I mean what's life without them?  Not one worth living.  I have such an amazing support system around me at all times.  I know if I ever need a shoulder to cry on or a partner in {fun} crime I have about a dozen people I can count on.  I am a lucky girl, what can I say.
  • Blogging.  Not only have I met great friends through blogging, I've learned a lot.  I've learned a lot about myself, things I like & things I don't.  I've learned a lot about being a mommy from my fellow mommy bloggers, seriously don't know how people parented before The Internet.  I've also gotten tons of hook ups from blogging, which is always a plus in  my book.*
  • Wine time.  I haven't talked much about my love for wine lately but don't let that fool you, box wine is still on tap at Casa de Dew.  My personal favorite?  Franzia House Favorites Crisp White.  Don't knock it till you try it.
  • Country living.  There are times I don't appreciate our country life, like when I want Chipotle REAL bad, but when we wake up to the most gorgeous sunrises it brings me back to why we chose to live in the sticks.
  • Part time work.  I am only working 4 days a week now, I have Fridays off.  I love this extra day off.  I thought I'd use that day to do chores and grocery shop but instead me and KP have been doing mommy daugher days.  Normally it consists of a little Chick-fil-A and some playground time but this week we will be having a playdate with another mommy blogger/friend!  Cannot wait.
  • Pinterest.  As hard a tried to resist joining I had to.  I kept seeing all these great ideas of things I could do with KP and just had to know more.  I'm so happy I did because not only have I gotten good crafty vibes but it has turned into my own virtual cookbook.  More on this over at A Brighter Yellow.**
What are you thankful for?

*more to come on the loot and even some chances for you to win some things for yo'self.

  1. I LOOVE pintrest, but it will suck your time like no other! They have the best ideas to do with kids, which could be awesome for your Fridays with KP.

  2. They blocked Pinterest here at work. So sad :( They've also blocked your mommy blogger/friend's page too! So odd.

  3. We're a country fam too--not a Starbucks or a Chipotle in sight. Which is nice sometimes, but not so nice at others!

  4. I also added Pinterest to my list today. Since finding it a few months ago, I've made so many new recipes, DIY crafts, and learned so much.. so I think its been beneficial to the whole family. ;) Your lasagna soup on your guest post looks DELISH! I'll have to try that one. Happy Thursday! :)

  7. Can I just say that I love your blog and read it everyday. Anyway, down to business... We too live in the sticks and for the most part I love it. Pinterest is my new favorite way to waste time and I wish I had mommy bloggers to hang out with but none of you lovely ladies live in the great state of iowa! Have a great weekend!

  11. Nothing wrong with wine time! My favorite is Seven Daughters! If you like white wine, it's a must try! I get it at Target, it's one of the only places I've seen it.
