Thankful Thursdays (Link Up!)

How is it already Thursday, y'all?  I love short weeks! :)

And there are so many things to be thankful for today...

{I'm thankful} that life's back to normal again, at least for a little while.  This week, I've been getting home at a respectable hour, having dinner with friends, and watching trashy t.v.  So, I've been in heaven, basically. :)

{I'm thankful} for thunderstorms.  There isn't much I love more than thunder and lightning in the summer.  (Although I'm pretty sure I'm the dumbest person ever because I got my car washed yesterday...)

{I'm thankful} that I finally took the maxi dress plunge.  I was searching frantically for a dress to wear to my friend Ashley's bachelorette party on Saturday night and, in an act of sheer desperation, I tried on a pretty blue dress from New York and Company (LOVE that place!) and fell in love.

(Pardon the picture quality - can you believe that none of us brought a real camera? I had to beg a passer-by to take this one.  And isn't miss Ashley [the adorable bachelorette in the red dress] just so precious?  Love that girl to pieces!)

{I'm thankful} that we finally found some furniture for our front porch. 

See the porch?

Here's what we ended up getting.

And, crazy enough, we found it at!  I looked everywhere and found very little that didn't look overly boxy and modern.  On a whim, I checked Walmart, and they had more selection (at the BEST prices) than anywhere else I found!  I'm terrible at envisioning how something will look in a space, so I'm praying that it doesn't look ridiculous, but if it does, we'll just send it back and try another one. :)

And last, but certainly not least, {I'm thankful} that, a year ago today, this little ray of sunshine entered our lives.

(At her first birthday party, really enjoying her cake... :))

Happy first birthday, Stella Jo!  I've had the most fun this past year getting to be your aunt, and I can't wait to see what God has planned for your life!

So that's what I've got this week - what are you guys thankful for?
Also linking up with black tag diaries, The Fontenot Four, First Day of my Life, kate says stuff, and  a punk a pumpkin and a peanut.

I can't stand when home decor is too boxy, geometric, and modern. So I have a hard time finding things like this too.

Thanks for hosting again!

My husband hates that I watch The Bachelor/The Bachelorette, but I love it. Especially when it's on in the summer! I need stuff to watch during the day!! And I LOVE Bachelor Pad too. I can't wait until it's onat the end of summer!

Love the maxi it looks great on you! Love the porch furniture! What kind of stone is that on the front of the house? It is so unusual. I really like it!
i am still waiting patiently for the bachelorette to show up on demand because I missed recording it this week! Stella could quite possible one of the cutest babies ever! I love her pictures!
