Thankful Thursday

41. My co-workers who have turned into friends - Bryan always teases me that co-workers don't become friends until you hang out outside of work. Well, I can proudly claim these ladies as my friends then! We had dinner for one of our other co-workers that is moving back to Hawaii, and I think we all realized how much fun we have together even outside of work [possibly more fun than we have at work!] These girls make me belly laugh every single day, and I know that if I ever needed anything they would be there. Love you ladies!

42. New Years Resolutions - Isn't it kind of exciting that with the coming of the new year, also comes the possibility of a clean slate? I think it is. In high school, one of my friends told me her new years resolution and it has stuck with me since, I think I will adopt it for myself as well this year.
To end the year with the same people I started it with.
So many people come into our lives, some are life-long friends and some are just toxic. Make sure you know who is real and who is fake, surround yourself with people who lift you up and make you laugh :)

43. Innocence - Man, what I would give to go back to simpler times and not be a grown up anymore, it's tough stuff! However, I can't take back the past, I can only preserve the present, and hopefully instill in my own kids and Sophia to stay a kid as long as they can. I took this picture on Christmas, Sophie sat in front of her new Disney Princess vanity and combed her hair forever. What?! Where did our sweet, little, three year old niece go? She had been temporarily replaced by a beautiful young lady, brushing her long golden locks. Time passes by entirely too fast...

44. Celebrating our first holiday season as husband and wife - that's all :)

45. Sunshiiiiine - Here in the Pacific NW we've been having crazy weather! Wind storms that have knocked the power out, snow, that eventually turned into ice... You name it, we've experienced it in the last two months. But guess what? My handy-dandy weather teller on my iPhone tells me that for the next six days we are in store for some serious sunshine. So what if the high is barely above 40degreesF - bring on the sun! :)

Alright friends, it's the last Thursday of 2010, what is ONE thing you are thankful for? Surely you can come up with just one? :)

  6. Sweet resolution! I love that. I get so caught up in the "I will do this/that" resolutions but sometimes it's best just to keep it simple. I will love those around me. Happy new year to you and your precious family. Love the wedding picture by the way!!!
