Daily Thanks - New Blog Home

Friday - Monthiversary
Not Only was it our monthiversary, but also Friday the 13th (aka the day we met).  Of course it wasn't the month we met, but we like to do a special celebration when the 13th falls on Friday.  We had dinner at 5 Guys then hit up NomNoms for dessert!  I had the strawberry cream.

Saturday - Place to ride

I've been worried for the past few weeks about how to find a good place to ride my bike.  Saturday, I packed up the car and headed to Knoxville.  The perfect spot had come to me in the middle of the night and it worked so well I'm excited to head back this weekend for another long ride.
Sunday - Lunch!

After church I went to my parents for lunch.  I've said a million times how thankful I am for them, so this week I'll celebrate the yummy lunch my mom had made.  Cajun pork chops, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, fried okra (fresh from the garden), and french bread. 
Monday - Working A/C

Monday was a rough day for me.  I was tired emotionally and physically.  Sunday night I'd come home from church to discover:

the thermostat wasn't working properly.  Jay was home, but for whatever reason didn't feel the temperature gradually rising.  He sent a text to our HVAC guy who was able to come out and fix it Monday while we were both at work.  It was left in the "off" position, but once I got home and turned it on the house cooled down within 30 minutes. 
Tuesday - Sleep

After Monday's rough day, I desperately needed good, quality sleep.  I'm incredibly thankful to have gotten it Monday night/Tuesday morning.  I was still sleepy, but not drained as I had been the previous day.
Wednesday - Suits

I'm a sucker for good TV.  This summer Jay and I have been experimenting with Netflix and some new shows our cableless lives don't have access to.  Suits is our newest favorite.  Unfortunately, its disk only, but last night we plowed through 5 episodes!
Thursday - Family

I have an incredible family.  I told you all yesterday about my family's need for prayer.  Today I learned we are having a family gathering this weekend.  My sister lives 2 hours away, but she (with my BIL, niece, and nephew) are driving down.  My cousin who lives near DC is flying in.  In times of crisis we freak and worry, but then we pull our crap together and support one another.  My family is good people.


  1. I like the way you show what you have to be thankful for, in the midst of tough times.

  2. I will be praying for your family!
    Enjoy your biking! i have been even tho I only go out the door and down the road! lol
