Thankful Thursday


I feel like there were only seconds between when I fell asleep last night at 9:30 to when Dan’s alarm went off this morning. I slept like a rock and feel so good today! This is good, because both the dog and Ina were up and at ‘em an hour earlier than usual.

I am thankful for my pajama drawer, which has continued to provide clothes that cover my growing belly. Yesterday I worked from home, wore pajamas until the afternoon, when I took a shower and changed into, you guessed it, a different set of pajamas. 

I am thankful for a bag of farm fresh hardboiled eggs in my fridge. Instant protein for breakfast.

This hb egg, mayo, and tomato breakfast has been a recent craving. Of course it takes 1000x better with fresh garden tomatoes, but it was still pretty darn good. 

I am thankful that our federal, Kansas, and Missouri e-files were accepted yesterday! And to my aunt for helping me with a few questions. I used TurboTax for the first time in years, and it was easier than I thought. I think that as long as you collect the right information throughout the year, doing your own taxes is relatively easy, even if you run two “small businesses."


On a related note, and this deserves its own paragraph, I am super thankful for our upcoming tax return. A few weeks ago, I did some calculations and discovered there is a small chance that we could be (non-mortgage) debt free before this baby comes in July. Our return will more than help to set us on track for that dream, which may actually be a reality. 

I am thankful that everyone in our house has been healthy his week. It has been quite a while since I could say that. 

I am thankful for our church’s new sermon series around marriage and relationships. If you live in KC, you should check it out!


Join us for our new Covenant series as we discover God's plan for preparing, protecting and restoring our most important relationships.

What are you thankful for?


  1. I am also very grateful for pj's! I am entering week 25 of pregnancy and every day I race home to put on my fuzzy fleece pajama bottoms. So comfy! :)

    1. It is seriously the best part of the day! Ha! Have a great weekend

  2. I'm thankful for the upcoming nice weather this weekend!

    1. Yes!!! We have been incredibly blessed this month, haven't we? I propose that every winter be scattered with 60 to 70 degree days- it helps to keep us sane! Enjoy!
