especially grateful for [10th ed.]

i have to be honest, when i did my very first edition of "Especially Grateful For" i didn't expect it to turn into TEN editions, but i just have too much fun putting together these lists that i'm sure there will be plenty more. especially since it's almost thanksgiving [7 weeks away is still considered "almost", right?], which means it is almost Christmas, which means my feelings of gratitude will at least double. just feeling so blessed these days!

today i am especially grateful for....
1. video chatting with my sister(s) this week [mostly b/c we just laugh the whole time].
2. my husband warming my feet up at night. <3
3. being there to see our friends give their new baby girl a blessing in church today.
4. vacuuming!
5. having time to do some yoga this week.
6. my jars of honey, of course! :)
7. my new dry shampoo, recommended to me by my sister.
8. being so close to buying our plane tickets to go home for Christmas!
9. homemade soup and grilled cheese for dinner on a rainy day this past week.
10. eating dinner & people watching outside on a beautiful saturday night with my dearest husband. [see photo]

life is just so much easier when i remember to be grateful. :)

  2. I always love your lists! How does the dry shampoo work? I admit, I've been skeptical of it, but we picked up a small container and I'm interested to see how it works. ;) And who wouldn't be grateful for honey?! (ps. dinner looks delish!)

  19. #5 is DEF something to be grateful for. I live and die by yoga!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog! I wanted to say, that I GREW UP in California and then moved to Hawaii, and even that move was enough to make me miss FALL. Hahah, I thought that was funny. How different climates can be!

    Hope you are enjoying CA none the less, I miss that place!

  21. What a cute list! I can totally relate to you on so many of those. I love skyping with my sisters, I end up laughing so hard it hurts. And last night my husband told me I had "cadavar" feet because they are so cold. But he didn't rub them, he told me to put socks on :) I think my husband could take a few pointers from yours :)

    As far as tips on detangling, I LOVE "Its a 10" Miracle Leave In Product. I buy it on Amazon, it is cheaper than @ the beauty supply.
