{Thankful Thursday} 5/22/14 + A Giveaway!

I can't believe it's already Thursday. We were off work Monday traveling home from Colorado, man does that extra day added on the weekend make a huge difference or what?! I'm excited because we get another 3 day weekend, can't believe Memorial day is here already too. 

Time for a little Thankful Thursday-  Where we love finding things to be thankful for in each day, big & small.


                             
 -Make sure you visit my co-hosts-

                                     

Weeknight Takeout. For some reason we never eat out during the week, we usually save it for the weekends. I'm thinking we need to have a weeknight takeout night more often, it was glorious. I opted for Planet Sub and he wanted Chinese. 

Perfect Moments. In this moment, I was riding the ski lift up the mountain in Denver with my love. We were in a beautiful town, on a gorgeous day, surrounded by God's beauty and there with our favorite people, our family. I just felt blessed.

Ice cream. Yup, you will probably see this a lot on my blog. I love ice cream and it sure does make my day. We got Dairy Queen on the trip home. Strawberry Shortcake Blizzard for me, Peanut Butter shake for him.

Saving Money. I grocery shop at Target and oh how I love it. #1- It's always clean and quiet, it makes grocery shopping actually enjoyable. #2- Doubling coupons, Cartwheel and 5% off with the REDcard Debit card! I love it. I saved over $30 this trip, yes please. 

My Fur Child. You see a lot of Pixie here too, sorry not sorry. Just look at that face! She stayed at grandmas while we were gone, I was so happy to have her back. She watches me get ready every morning :) I have to stop and snuggle often. 

Last but not least, you all know I have been participating in the Tone It Up Bikini challenge recently. I've loved these girls for a while now and I absolutely love their workouts. They are simple and quick, but effective! I'm so excited to be teaming up with several other great women to share this Tone It Up giveaway with you!

Even if you are skeptical, entering the giveaway won't hurt! You could win a $110 prize package including The Beach Babe workout DVD, Tone It Up apparel and... well the rest is a secret! Who doesn't love a good surprise?

  4. That Strawberry Blizzard looks AMAZING!!!
    Look at your savings already at Target! My husband & I have running challenges to see whose total is higher by the end of the year... I think I'm only up to $30 savings for the year so far on my Red Card. You win in shopping! :)
    I love ski lifts - seeing the world in a different way.
    Take out during the week always feels like such a treat.

  5. I'm with ya - we usually save our eating out for the weekends and it's a nice little treat during the week too!! Great job with the savings- makes it more fun when you can spend money on other stuff lol!

  7. my savings at target are never that good! haha. my target doesnt have a lot of variety, so we dont grocery shop there, but sometimes i go for special things i cant get at kroger - but then i end up buying clothes, oops. and how have i never tried the strawberry blizzard? is it super yummy? i love when my husband and i get different meals, then we dont have to settle on what the other wanted (hint: he always wants qdoba, i always want some form of asian haha)

  8. It looks like you've had lots to be thankful for this week! Um, hello - the Target debit/credit card is the best! It's like a challenge to see how much I can save with that, Cartwheel and coupons. That ice cream looks absolutely delicious and PLANET SUB!!! We had one of those right down the street from us from our place in Iowa, and I miss it dearly. Ah, the good 'ol days.

  9. Always YES to ice cream!!! We are heading to Michigan next week and I think one of my first stops might be to a Dairy Queen for a blizzard haha. We never get takeout for dinner on week nights either but I like your thinking! Any night I can avoid cooking makes me happy :)

  11. Pixie is adorable! I'm sure she is so glad you guys are back! I need to figure out this cartwheel app because I never save any money when I'm at target! Colorado looks beautiful- sometimes those are the perfect moments to just reflect on how beautiful life really is!

  12. I've eaten in all week long and I've been dreaming about the sushi take-out I'll be doing tonight from one of my favorite spots. Sometimes, it just makes a week better!

  16. Denver is so pretty - I want to go back! Subs and Chinese (and pizza) are our only takeout options on the island where we live so they are quite regularly rotated ha. So nice to not meal plan/cook during the week sometimes! Loving the giveaway!

  17. I'm glad to see I am not the only one around here obsessed with ice cream. In fact, looking at that Blizzard made me want some right now! (stupid PMS - LOL) And I am also in love with my Target REDcard debit card. I love looking at my reciept to see how much I have saved each trip and so far this year!

  22. hm...maybe i need to seriously consider getting a target red card i mean majority of my bank account goes to target already so why not??

    ReplyDelete
  23. Uh, I still haven't eaten at planet sub. Something's wrong with me. That does look like a perfect moment!! Love me some target & pixie!!

  24. We just got Chipotle last night on a total whim- I love getting taking out randomly. :) Denver is beautiful! A few years ago when my sister and I were driving my car across the country, we stopped in Denver and then drove through Vail- SO gorgeous.

    I signed up for the Tone It Up newsletter, but haven't actually started putting the tips into practice... I'm totally entering your giveaway, though! Maybe that will be the motivation I need. :)

  25. We don't have Dairy Queen in Ireland so I've only had in once in my life - last summer in Canada. I remember it so well: after receiving lots of recommendations I opted for a s'mores blizzard, and it was divine! I completely understand why it's worthy of a place on this list!

  26. Oh man Chinese sounds wonderful right now... I am drooling. I also grocery shop at Target, it is AWESOME. Their prices beat most of the grocery stores in my town! How's your brother?

  27. Love me some ice cream...now I want some! LOL!
    I did grocery shopping today at Target too, saved over $32! Love shopping there! I agree, it's always quite and clean and I love savings! I'm constantly on Cartwheel, always printing coupons and can't beat the RED Debit card!

    Love your fur baby!
