Thankful Thursday

I definitely think that these Thankful Thursday posts are helping me become more aware of the things I'm thankful for throughout the week. Just when I feel like complaining, I'm instantly reminded of that list I've been building up in my mind of the things that I'm thankful and grateful for.

6. Mine and Bryan's job- Even though it's hard to wake up some mornings, put on a smile and go to jobs that we both wish we got paid more for, I'm just thankful to be employeed right now in this economy.

7. Scrapbooking with my mom - This Saturday I'm participating in "Croptoberfest" with her, which will consist of scrapbooking all day :) I'm so glad this is something she introduced to me because I'm now able to document my memories/pictures AND spend time with my mom, double points!

8. My sister Hanna - No matter what mood I'm in, she is ALWAYS able to make me smile. We argue and bicker just like any other sisters, but I love her and am so proud of her.  She's not afraid to be herself, share her own style, and be crazy just to make you laugh.

9. Safeway - I stop here at least 4 out of 5 of my work days. I know I know, that's really bad, but normally it's just to pick up something small like a lime for a recipe I'm making that I forgot, or some milk because Bryan is a milk monster and drinks it like crazy. The workers there are so friendly and I think most of them know me face if not name by now. I love great customer service!

10. Getting in better shape - You can see any of my previous blogs regarding P90X and know that Bryan and I just decided [together] that it's time for both of us to be in better shape. Especially because we are thinking about starting a family in the next year or so. Something that we've agreed on through out pre marital counseling and our entire relationship, is that we both want to be very active parents. I don't want to be winded running up stairs or after a 2 year old. Even though I feel bad for the tenents below us in our apartment complex, I know that we are making huge strides to better ourselves for our future family :)
