Thankful Thursday...

I've seen a lot of other bloggers dedicate a weekly post to expressing their gratitude for things in their lives. I've done it once or twice. But I'm going to try and do it weekly now too.

This week I'm thankful for alone time with my husband. I'm guessing that once we have kids, we'll be wishing (sometimes) for the days where we could just come home and veg in front of the TV, cuddle and then go get some Dairy Queen. Besides two dogs that sometimes whine for our attention, our weeknights are usually quiet. We get to make dinner. Discuss how our days went. Gossip about people's Facebook statuses. Figure out weekend plans. Watch TV. Play Mariokart. Chill and relax. Chillax. And when summer comes, we add in bike rides and walks with the dogs into the mix.

Our evenings are generally the highlight of my days. And I'm thankful for this time that we have together.

Speaking of alone time with my husband, we figured out what we're going to do during his spring break. We're going to spend a night at a Bed and Breakfast in Lake City and hang out with frogs and bears. I've never spent the night at a B&B before, so I'm looking forward to it. And I'm looking forward to visiting Lake City and explore the town where Dave's dad grew up.


  1. Awww...what a great idea! And yes, definitely enjoy the "quiet" time now. Don't get me wrong...I love my child (as you know) and I love your weeknights and weekends together...but there's just something about it just being the two of you for that little bit of time before everything changes for EVER when you have kids..just sayin. :) The B&B idea sounds like fun...I've never been either and I've definitely never spent much time in Lake sure to take lots of pics and report back to us, your faithful blog readers!

  2. Really?? You actually like hanging out with my brother??? haha. I remember those lazy days.... your trip to lake city sounds like fun :)
