Thankful Thursday #3

It's been a while since I did a "Thankful Thursday" post. Let's change that right now! Here are a few things I've been extra thankful for this week:

Our Local Library + Magic Shows


Yesterday morning, our small-town library hosted a magic show. Piper has been OBSESSED with balloons for quite a while now, and so, going to see a magician who specializes in making balloon-animals definitely made Piper's dreams come true.


All I have to say is this butterfly balloon better last forever, or else I'm going to have to learn how to make balloon animals myself, and fast.

Beach Weather


This one deserves a few different photos to visually explain how much we have been enjoying beach weather, lately. 




Whenever we have an evening {or even a morning} without plans and the weather is nice, you can bet we're headed to the beach. We live so close to Lake Erie and we only get this kind of weather for a few months out of the year so, we definitely over-indulge in the beach nights, binge-style at times.

YouTube


This one might seem a little strange to some but, hear me out. I took to YouTube a few weeks ago to help document my weight-loss journey and since starting, I have begun losing weight again! This has taken accountability to a new level for me. Every Friday, I plan to post a weigh-in video with my next video airing sometime tomorrow. {"Airing" -- haha. I'm such a dork. It shouldn't take you long to realize that if you watch some of my videos.} 

My Husband


If I could get away with it, I would post "my husband" in this list every single week but, I think ya'll would get sick of that real quick. This week, though, I have to do it. I don't always make it easy on him but, he always does everything in his power to make life easy on me. He says I make him a better man but, I truly wouldn't be the woman I am without him. We've been together since we were 15 years old and he still makes me laugh every.single.day.

Tuesday night this week, I wasn't feeling my best, so he suggested I go upstairs and take some time to relax while he played with Piper downstairs. He tells me to take a break for myself often but, I try to only take him up on it when I really need it. This night in particular, I needed it. I went upstairs and binge-watched some netflix in my pj's with no shame and no worry because I knew "he got this". Subsequently, Nick went on to do Piper's full bedtime routine, and called me in just in time to give her a kiss goodnight.

This guy is a saint on the daily. It's never about him. He is constantly putting us before himself and just when he knows all is well with us, then, just then does he take time for himself. I could never do Nick justice through my words of gratitude. He's just too good to us and he's never been better than ever since he's become a dad.

Beach Weather



Did I already say that once? Oh, sorry. I really mean it!
