Thankful in November

I know I haven’t been writing a lot, but don’t worry I am still around. I am getting my life adjusted because a lot of things are going to be changing in the coming year. I will tell you that I am taking a break from my weight loss journey for right now, due to things going on in my life at the moment. Also, my neck has healed! I am glad for that but it does catch every once in awhile.

During this month, and the next month I am spending every moment I can with my husband before he starts another shift. We are praying that he can stick to the Monday – Friday shift, but you never know what will happen. We are praying for the great news and continue to be looking forward to more awards in our path.

Another thing is we are thinking/talking about another baby, and I am excited but then again I don’t want to get anybodies hopes up rather we are or we’re not, so I am just going to keep it simple till we figure something out on our own.

I haven’t been going to church either, and not because I don’t like it, but because I want to suck up all the time with my husband. In the past 6 years he has worked weekends and now since he is off on the weekends I wanna spend those times with him. He just started being off on the weekends (not just every other weekend) this past October (so, not even a month) and they are already talking about sending him back to swing shift this January. I love sleeping in and waking up with him still there, and I am sure if you was in my shoes you would want the same.

We have been going places on the weekends too since he has been off. It is like mini vacations or just spending time together. This weekend I went to see Breaking Dawn with Lisa. We also go eat chips and dip at the local Mexican restaurant with a order of cheese dip of course and a margarita! YUM! We can always use a girls night and I simply love it. Saturday, I woke up 6 hours later to go with my husband to a reptile expo or show, which ever they call it. It was different, but it was spending time with him and if he wants to go look at snakes, lizards, turtles, and other things then I will be right beside him. On the way home we got confused in road construction and ended up 160 miles out of the way from where we was. I had to call my mom, who was babysitting Jade, that we would be about 2 hours later from the pickup time. lol. I am glad she understood! The hamburger 2 hours away from home, taste the same by the way! lool. Today, we got up, cleaned the house some and went to do a little bit of Christmas shopping! I am tired! Monday, I can see a nap or 2 sneaking into my schedule.

However, in this post I will tell you I am thankful for…

God – Because well I am here. I should always be thankful for another day
Jade – She is so loving, she really brightens my days.
Husband – He is so caring, thoughtful, and he works so hard for us.
Life – Living another day, I wouldn’t change anything.
Mom – She wants to do so much for us, she is loving & caring.
Phones – communication when you need it.
Blogging friends – Because they rock!
Friends – They will always be there for you no matter the distance
Car – without it, we would be walking
Food – Because well Dressing will be sitting on my table in the near future
Cookies – Always need that sweet delicious something
Ice Coffee – The benefits of giving you energy and that wonderful taste
My Flat Iron
Being a Stay at Home Mom – Many of people would love to do what I do.
A new House – We will be moving in the next year
Graduation – My husband will be graduating next year
Medication – For healing
Weight Loss –
— Gosh, There is so much I am thankful for I could go on and on. Just know I am thankful for everything I touch, see, feel and see (well the positive things at least).

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, then I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I hope your days are filled with laughs, joy and happiness, because without that life would be pretty boring. I miss all of you and I hope to be able to write more in later days. Personally I haven’t been writing because a lot of things haven’t been going on. Just the same ole stuff just different day kinda thing lol I guess though as you can see a lot of things have been going on I just haven’t been venting LOL!

Later my readers, I will be back
((Hugs Virtually with much Love))

  1. I been kinda bad about checking on people … so we are good girl! 😀 Thanks for the FB chat the other day — it was great fun!


  2. Wishing you all the best with your plans! Sometimes we need to give ourselves a break!

    Don’t feel bad about not going to Church so often right now – my belief is you don’t need to go to Church to believe! You carry your belief and love with you every moment of the day and where ever you go! xxx


    • Thanks. I don’t feel bad about not going because I know what I believe, I just wish they had a church that you could go whenever you wanted lol


  3. That’s a lot of gratitude! Nicely conveyed, young lady!


  4. Wishing you and yours all the best!


  5. Have a wonderful holiday and enjoy every moment with family that you can!!


  6. It’s lovely that you are geting to spend this time with your husband at the weekends. I am really pleased for you


  7. I sensed a bit of shame in your words when you spoke of not going to church. I’m surrounded by Christians in my family, remember? I, myself, used to attend church faithfully. I speak from experience when I say, church is not where you go to find God. It’s where you go to learn from others who are more seasoned than you are in the Word, and to have fellowship. You should go with a ‘happy heart’ and for no other reason, or personally I don’t believe there’s a blessing in it. You can find God and worship him anywhere, Honey…and it sounds like you have in all the things you’re thankful for. God puts a lot of emphasis on marriage, so if you feel that your marriage would be best served together and away from prying eyes right now, then I feel He will bless that. Always remember to serve with a happy heart. The only way to do that is to go with what feels ‘good’ for you. He gives us this little thing called ‘gut instinct’ for a reason.
    I’m so happy things are going well for you. You know how much I love ya kid.


  8. That’s a great list! So cute… have a wonderful holiday! ~Pam


    • I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and getting ready for a wonderful Christmas. Hope all is well with you and your family.


  9. Spend as much time as you can with your husband. Soak in every moment.

    Congrats on talking/thinking about another baby. Hope everything goes well for you.


    • Thank you so much Laci. I love spending time with him and sleeping in on the weekends is really grateful. I hope everything is going great your way too.


  10. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving…seeing all you have been blessed with, and are thankful for, you deserve a wonderful day. Hoping to here more from you in the future. Always remember, Life is what is happens while you are making other plans….continue to enjoy the trip.
