Welcome back to #iPPP! Mama Mash and I want to see your funny, your yummy, your heartfelt, your favorite phone photos of the week. Link up below!

If you’re on Facebook, you’re probably sick to death of hearing about what I (and lots of others) are thankful for this month. But, I try to take the time every November to look past the exhaustion, the tantrums, the working late, and all of the other negatives, to see the positive.

I’ve had a rough week, y’all, so I kind of feel the need to do this.

Because really, I am a lucky girl. So, I’m going to tell you (mostly in pictures, because that’s what I do), what I’m grateful for in 2012.

I’m thankful for this sweet, imaginative boy who has the patience to try to teach his clueless mama how to play Minecraft.

I’m thankful for my oldest girl, who is thoughtful and hardworking, smart and kind.

I’m thankful for my youngest girl, who snuggles with me during the day, and makes me laugh with her crazy sense of humor.

I’m thankful for this little sugarbug, who keeps me on my toes and has me wrapped around his finger.

I’m thankful for this guy, and us.


I’m thankful for my health, and my family’s health.

There’s so much more that I’m thankful for: my parents and my family, the kids’ grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, my friends, technology, a warm home and hot water, this blog of my very own, the people I’ve met (in real life and virtually) as a result of this space, reality television, the library of children’s books that we own, the teachers that care for my kids every day, the food on the table (whether I screw it up or not), the leftover Halloween chocolate in the freezer, the Gluten Free resources we have access to that makes it a little easier to feed my girl and keep her healthy, music at my fingertips, cars that get us there safely, and all of the other things I could go on and on about.

What are you thankful for?
