(Ina and Dan “hiding” from me in the “pallet” they like to build out of 20 blankets every night.)
I hope your Thursday is going well so far. Mine is going great, and as always there are so many things to be thankful for!
I am thankful for the ladies in my small group who threw us pregnant ladies a “sprinkle.” We ate really good food, opened the cutest gifts, and enjoyed the luxury of chatting without wrangling in our children.
Tiaras and all, it was a lovely evening.
I am thankful that Kim was able to watch Ina during the 20 minute overlap that I would be gone and Dan was on his way home from work.
Not only did she watch Ina, she brought over ice cream cake.
No, you can’t have her.
I am thankful for sharpies and their ability to cover the toddler induced bleach marks on my favorite (re: only) maternity maxi skirt.
Maxi skirts and dresses are going to be even more valuable to me in the next 8 weeks because yesterday my midwife took one look at my lovely varicose veins and told me I needed to start wearing compression on my right leg. As if having a huge belly and a waddle wasn’t attractive enough, now I get to add a nylon stocking to my look.
But seriously, other than that, my mid-wife said my pregnancy is going perfectly and all my numbers are spot on. So, of course, for that I am super thankful.
I am thankful for Dan’s newly acquired meat smoking abilities - on a grill no less!
Yesterday he smoked chicken breast stuffed with swiss cheese and ham, served with broccoli and potato, I could eat that every night of my life.
I hope you have a wonderful day! What are you thankful for?
