Thankful Thursdays (Link Up!)...

Hi, loves!

This week is speeding by (as usual), and it's time to think about all the good things in our lives.

{I'm thankful} that my firm doesn't skimp on its season Rangers tickets.  Otherwise, I wouldn't have found myself sitting two rows behind this guy last night.

Can you guys tell who it is?

How about if I show you who he was sitting next to?

Figure it out yet?

That's right y'all.  I spent the entire night last night ignoring the Rangers (who happened to play a phenomenal game) and listening to George W. and Nolan Ryan shoot the breeze and entertain the other important people in the owners' box. 

At one point, an adorable little girl approached President Bush's secret service guard with a note she had written him on a paper napkin.  When it made its way to President Bush, he put on his glasses and read it, burst into a beaming smile, and then turned around to wave to the little girl.  Melted my heart.

{I'm thankful} that this week has been fairly low-key at work.  I'm taking advantage of it now while I can, because we go to trial in November, and things are about to get insane.

{I'm thankful} for cherries.  I've gone through a bag and a half since Sunday.

{I'm thankful} that I've taken Kristin's challenge to give up candy until September 1.  I'm honestly not a huge candy fan, but there are candy jars everywhere at work, and lately I've found myself grabbing a piece nearly every time I go to the kitchen.  I can only imagine how many silly calories that adds up to each day.  Kristin's also giving up Starbucks until then, too, but since I can't, in good conscience, deprive myself of my bi-weekly skinny peppermint mocha, I've decided to give up all sweets until September 1.  No cookies.  No cake (except on August 22, my birthday).  No sugar at all apart from fruit and my latte.  I've become entirely too lax about treats, and I just feel better when sugar's not racing through my bloodstream.

{I'm thankful} for you guys, my sweet blog friends.  I continue to be amazed at how encouraging and welcoming this community has been and how much I enjoy my little corner of cyberspace. :)

Hope you guys are having a fantastic week!

Candy jars are evil! And the pieces are so tiny it's so easy to say well I'll just have one from this one, and this one, and this one, haha.

Kristin said...

Haha. The Starbucks one will be hard when school starts, as nonfat fraps and white choc. Mochas are my drug of choice.
Good luck on the candy! I just have to restrain from buying it and I'm okay. There aren't jars of it everywhere!
That's pretty cool about Pres. Bush! My dad would be jealous. I wish my job had perks like MLB games :)
