It’s Been A While…

Me and my dog Ruby

My Blogging Lull It’s been over a week since I last blogged. I have to admit, my blogs have been mostly daily gratitude journal entries and quotes of the day, which isn’t the most exciting stuff on the planet. I … Continue reading

Gratitude Journal Day 25

Today I am grateful for:

  1. productivity! It’s been a non-stop productive day. I’m on my 36th hour of consciousness and packing. I pulled an all-nighter last night and somehow I’m still the energizer bunny I was yesterday.
  2. a wonderful and early breakfast with my dad. There’s nothing like getting up early on a Sunday morning and going out for breakfast. Especially when he drives me up to Auburn to eat at Katrina’s Cafe. It was delicious!
  3. a great afternoon and evening with one of my best friends. It’s been a while since we’ve had a day like today.
  4. my best friend, for coming over and helping me pack. And for dealing with the awkwardness that came along with it.
  5. my mom, for taking me to look at some adorable antique nightstands from Craigslist. We ended up buying them for my room at her house and I’m in love. I also fell in love with Wendy’s Junk in the Trunk, the vendor who sold us the nightstands. ( check out her Facebook page) I’ll post pictures of my room when it’s all moved in and put together.
  6. my mom (again) for dealing with my ever-changing sense of style when it comes to decorating my room. I think I’m probably on my 20th room theme at this point. haha
  7. another trip to IKEA. I can’t get enough of that place!
Here's a little sneak peek of one of the nightstands I bought.

Gratitude Journal Day 24

Today I am grateful for:

  1. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants on TV last night. It almost makes me want to re-read the series…almost.
  2. going to IKEA. It’s one of my all-time favorite places.
  3. my mom, who lets me be creative and have fun with decor.
  4. the guy who made our Take’n’Bake Pizza at Papa Murphy’s. He made it in the shape of a heart per my special request. Totally made my day!
  5. the motivation to pack, pack, PACK! I don’t know where it came from, but now I resemble the energizer bunny in packing mode.
  6. Craigslist. I love a good deal!
  7. my family, for always making sure I feel welcome and loved.

Gratitude Journal Day 23

Today I am grateful for:

  1. waking up next to my puppies. Have I mentioned I love my dogs?
  2. waking up in footie pajamas. That’s always a fun way to start the day.
  3. my dad taking me shopping.
  4. my dad being patient while I perused through Target. It’s like the Bermuda Triangle in there!
  5. going out to sushi with my dad after our fun-filled shopping spree (or at least I thought it was fun… it was probably torture for him haha)
  6. my great-aunt and uncle. They leave for Maui in the morning and I said goodbye to them tonight. I won’t see them for a couple of months, but I am so grateful to have them in my life.
  7. falling asleep to Pocahontas on ABC Family. I love it when Disney movies are on cable!

Gratitude Journal Day 22 AND My 50th Post

Well ladies and gents, here it is! My 50th post:

Today I am grateful for:

  1. the people of FedEx Kinko’s. I left my credit card in one of the self-serve kiosks five minutes before closing on Christmas Eve. Luckilythe kind people of FedEx Kinko’s found my lonely little debit card and saved it for me to pick up today. 
  2. my best friend. Sometimes it feels a little easier to breathe when she’s around. Although it never seems like long enough.
  3. my aunt and her boyfriend. They invited me over for a movie night tonight.
  4. footie pajamas… enough said.
  5. Hallmark. They’re still playing Christmas movies and I will stretch the Christmas season out as long as I possibly can.
  6. falling asleep next to both of my precious puppies. It’s my absolute favorite way to sleep.

  1. Christmas! It’s finally here. 
  2. spending Christmas morning with my wonderful aunt and cousins.
  3. the look on everyone’s face when they opened my hand-made gifts (especially my aunt’s). I’m planning on posting LOTS of DIY tutorials for all the gifts I made very soon. Bear with me!
  4. a Christmas nap with my puppies. My dad and I fell asleep for most of the morning on my aunt’s couch…whoops!
  5. seeing Parental Guidance with my mommy. I needed a good laugh and that movie is exactly what the doctor ordered!
  6. my kitty, Tedi, attempting to show me some love. See the bottom picture.

The seashell ornaments I made for my aunt for Christmas. They were a hit!
