Happy Grateful weekend to YOU

a section of our Thanksgiving table
Happy late Thanksgiving! We were celebrating with my family and thus did not post at all this me AND my husband got pretty sick (he is still somewhat sick: gastroenteritis. It is even worse than it sounds. boo)

 Here are some things we've been grateful for since last week (and extra bonus, I am grateful for my husband tucking me in on the eve of Nov 18th...) :
all tucked in
Nov 19: We were very grateful for my Master's thesis being turned in, a successful BodyPump launch, and a safe flight to my home in StL
Nov 20: We were grateful for sleeping in......
Nov 21: We were grateful for the Sabbath and seeing friendly faces again (to see more, click the "My Faith" button)
my cute nephew
Nov 22: What a great day to be thankful for hot showers and a comfy bed
Nov 23: We had delicious homemade pizza and gobbled it right up. SO grateful for sisters who can cook! Also, for my Master's Thesis being ACCEPTED for DEFENSE in December!!!
