Thankful Thursday #4

Earlier this year, I started a little series here called "Thankful Thursday". 

Thankful Thursday posts are some of my favorite posts to write because it forces me to sit down and basically count my blessings. 

While I have so much to be thankful for on a daily basis, this list is going to feature a few  fun things that I'm particularly thankful for this week.

1. Labor Day Weekend

We used the long weekend for everything it was intended for; to rest and enjoy the fruits of our labor.

We visited with family and took a lot of time to relax, some of which was done fireside. Oh, how I love campfire season!

2. New Camera

Sadly, the time has come to say goodbye to my old camera. On Friday, my camera stopped mid-way through filming Friday's YouTube video and would not turn back on. After a quick google search, I came to the diagnosis that the motherboard fried. It's a common problem with that version of camera and is a little upsetting to find that despite it being a common problem, a recall hasn't been made.

My husband did some fast research for me and on Monday, we went shopping for my new baby. It was love at first sight with this new camera and, we bought the 3 year extended warranty so I know we will be best friends for quite a while.

3. New Shoes

My husband and I both got a new pair of shoes this past weekend.

We always try to go shoe shopping this time of year, to catch all of the back-to-school deals. I got these new shoes on BOGO 1/2 OFF at Famous Footwear.

4. My Husband's Dedication

Okay, I could honestly put my husband on this list every Thursday because he makes me thankful every single day but, I wanted to mention my thankfulness toward his dedication in particular this week because he has been spending all of his spare time practicing guitar for our church lately.

His dedication to our family and our church inspires me to be a better person each day.

5. The Beginning of Football Season

While we don't watch Football at all in our home, we sure do love the beginning of our local high school's Football season. Nick and I are high school sweethearts and, we still live in the same town where we met in high school. Going back to our high school during Football season is so nostalgic for us because I use to watch him play Football on that same field while we were dating so many years ago.

Also, this year is extra exciting for us because Nick's mom is the head of concessions so, Piper found her first part-time job helping out there.

Mostly, Piper just deals with quality control.

Readers, what are you thankful for this week?
