especially grateful for. [9th ed.]

it's been a busy busy week, so i felt the need to take a little break and make a list of all the simple things that i am especially grateful for.....

1. my husband changing his flight yesterday to come home 4 hours earlier!
2. celebrating my husband's early return with the most delicious thai dinner. [his and hers]
3. kale salads. [which apparently also make a pretty good bouquet?] :)
4. my new makeup from Ulta and my new art supplies from ASW!
5. the much needed thunderstorm/hailstorm we had over the weekend that cooled things off around here.
6. feeling sore from the good workouts i've had this week.
7. my trip to the thrift store on monday even though all i came home with was a white tshirt.
8. this movie that's coming out next week. can't wait to see it!
9. the camera on my phone. so convenient.
10. learning new things and setting goals.

*you can read my other lists here. <3

  9. I love the way you word things and I love your lists of things you are grateful for. It reminds me to think of what I am grateful for and has spurred my own series called "These are a few of my favorite things."

    I live in the same area as you and have never heard of ASW! Definitely going to be making a visit there!

  11. ahh so cute that your husband changed his flight. what a lovely little surprise! and so jealous of your thunderstorm/hailstorm..even though it's not too hot here, I just love them haha. back home in sydney, we used to have this massive sky light in our house and when my brother and i were little we used to lie on the floor and watch all the lightening! so much fun.
    have an awesome weekend :) xx

  28. It's hard to have a husband that travels. Devin has already been gone two and a half months of our 9 months of marriage. When we move out for his job he will be gone two or three weeks at a time.
