Thankful Thursday 1/9/14

Good morning loves and welcome back for the 2nd installment of Thankful Thursday with my girls Katie ElizabethThe Strong Family and Carly Blogs Here


I must admit, I've had a little bit of a rough week. I was feeling better Monday then Tuesday it kind of hit me again. I'm ready for this sinus crud to kick rocks... It's been a rough week with my family too. Doors just continue to close on them regarding Christian and where he will go next for rehabilitation. He ended up having to go back into surgery Wednesday morning to remove the shunt they put in on Dec 16. For weeks he had been fighting fever and infection and they didn't really know why, so they wanted to remove the shunt and see if that helped. Just continue to keep my family in your prayers please, and you can follow the story here on Facebook if you'd like. 

Here are some shots of some things I was thankful for each day this last week-

-So thankful for my LifeGroup. I love spending time learning the bible every Thursday night with some of my favorite ladies. 

-Friday nights aren't too wild in our house, and I wouldn't trade that for anything! They slept, I watched 48 Hours. Party people, right here. 


-Woke up Saturday morning and started back at bootcamp with Ang. Thankful for a little red cup pick me up afterwards! And then the sickness hit, bummer.


-Being sick is no fun, put puppy snuggles on a lazy Sunday will brighten anyones day. 


-This healthy pre gym snack helped perk me up and rock bootcamp for sure, I needed it! Banana + cinnamon almonds = new fave snack. 


-I got to go up and see my little brother for a while on Tuesday. I'd stayed away due to being sick, but I had to pop in. Sweet sweet boy.

-I have never been a hot tea fan, but I recently tried this one and I am kind of hooked. It's felt nice on my sore throat! (I think it's only available around Christmas, sorry!) 

I can't wait to read everyone else's posts today, so link up and thanks for stopping by!

  5. I'm not a tea person ever but am still trying to find one I like-- now I'm wishing I would have tried that when it was out during the holidays! Whatever nail polish you're wearing in the starbucks picture looks so pretty! I just went back and read about your brother-- I am definitely keeping him and your family in my prayers!

    3. OH MY GOSH! I should probably let this go, but because I'm a spelling freak, I can't! In my comment above, I meant "born" and not burn! What would my first graders say and think about me? ;) Just had to fix that, because once I saw it-my life felt like it was over. lol Dramatic, I know!

      Enjoy your weekend! Scrolling on up to see what your tablet can do for my taste buds ;)
