Thankful Thursdays...

Thanks to everyone who linked up for Thankful Thursday last week!  I had a blasty-blast getting to know so many new ladies and making note of the things for which I should be thankful.

So let's do it again, shall we?

First and foremost, {I'm thankful} that I get to go see the Hunger Games tomorrow!


In the span of about a week, I re-read all three books, and I am more than pumped to see it all play out on the silver screen.  And the reviews seem to be pretty darned good, so apparently it doesn't suck.  Which is always a bonus. :)

{I'm thankful} that I was able to squeeze a run in last night, even if I did get a cramp halfway through and end up having to walk the rest of the way.  Between getting sick and being a busy little bee for the past two weeks, I've only gotten in two runs per week, and that's just not acceptable.  April 14th will be here in less than a month - eek!


{I'm thankful} that we finally took the plunge and enlisted the assistance of a financial planner.  Despite the fact that I started sobbing uncontrollably in the middle of Starbucks when he started asking us about our life insurance needs and what debts we'd need paid off if Micah died (oh yeah, it happened - Micah can never claim that I don't love him a ridiculous amount :)), he's sticking with us, and we're committed to the plan he's come up with to keep us on track financially.  It feels so good to have a plan and be purposefully saving/investing/etc. rather than haphazardly spending.  (Plus, his voice sounds exactly like Matthew McConaughey, which is distractingly awesome).

{I'm thankful} for this week's Project Scripture verse. Matthew 11:28 has been one of my favorites for years, and keeping it in my mind this week has really reminded me how restful it can be to give it all to Him. Because, let's face it... when I keep my problems to myself, I just make a colossal mess of them. :)

{I'm thankful} my BFF made me download the Draw Something app.  It's ridiculously addicting.  I won't even tell you how many games we played yesterday... while I was at work.


How good is my eskimo? ;)

And lastly, {I'm thankful} for this guy. 

Because even with his face covered, he's still the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen. :)

What are y'all thankful for this week? Link up and tell us! :)
