What I'm Thankful for...

Day 1 - I'm thankful for my parents. Not gonna lie; they're pretty cool. And helpful. I kind of like them; they're keepers. Plus, they tolerate me. I can be annoying, but they still love me.

Day 2 - I'm thankful for my sisters (I guess both of them!). They're pretty great to talk to, and now I can even give them fashion advice, and they actually listen! They're keepers as well.

Day 3 - I'm thankful for my job. As much as my students drive me nuts day in and day out, I'm glad I have somewhere to go every day and do what I love. Plus, I like them sometimes. Yeah, sometimes.

Day 4 - I'm thankful for my coworkers. We vent to each other. We make each other laugh. We can take a stressful day and turn it into something not so bad. I love them!

Day 5 - I'm thankful for my boyfriend. He's pretty great (even though we can drive each other nuts sometimes!). I really like him, and he makes me happy. And he makes me smile.

Day 6 - I'm thankful for the weekend. I get 2 days away from work, and they are much needed. A 3-day weekend is even better, and they need to happen more often.

Day 7 - I'm thankful for photography. It's such a great release for me, and I love every part of it.

Day 8 - I'm thankful for hiking. I hate nature, but for some weird reason, I love hiking. Good conversations. Good exercise. Good times.

Day 9 - I'm thankful for my iPhone. It calls. It takes pictures. It texts. It plays games. It gives directions. It checks social media. It checks mail. I love it.

Day 10 - I'm thankful for my hair. I can wear it straight or wavy. Not everyone can say that. I love that I have options. I also like my color. I guess I'm pretty lucky.

Day 11 - I'm thankful for boots. I have brown, black, and gray, and I love wearing them. They dress up an outfit, and they're comfortable. Definitely a favorite.

Day 12 - I'm thankful for cold weather. I'd much rather be cold than hot, and I love this time of year! You can always add layers and blankets, and it definitely feels like the holiday season with this cold weather.

Day 13 - I'm thankful for shopping. Wow, who am I? I never thought I'd ever say that. I really do enjoy shopping though.

Day 14 - I'm thankful for hugs. I really do love a good hug. Especially after a rough day. Hugs not drugs. Remember that.

Day 15 - I'm thankful for Friday. I really do love this day. Plus, Grimm is on Fridays, and that helps too!

Day 16 - I'm thankful for Chinese food. I could eat it every week. No really, I could. Pork steamed dumplings. Sesame chicken. Crab wontons. Yes, please!

Day 17 - I'm thankful for sleeping in. I love not having to set an alarm. 

Day 18 - I'm thankful for tea. When you have a sore throat, it really helps!

Day 19 - I'm thankful for sweatpants. Seriously, they rock! After a long day, sweatpants are the way to go.

Day 20 - I'm thankful for hump day. Knowing you're halfway through the week will help you get through the last 2 days.

Day 21 - I'm thankful for heat. As much as I LOVE cold weather, I also like when I don't freeze to death.

Day 22 - I'm thankful that American Education week is over! I really hate this week because it's a lot of pressure as a teacher, and all eyes are on you. I'm glad my kids were pretty well behaved this week - I'm also thankful for that!

Day 23 - I'm thankful for Walmart. It really does have everything...well mostly everything.

Day 24 - I'm thankful for football. I love a Sunday where I can watch football all day and relax. It's even better when the Patriots are on TV, and they win!

Day 25 - I'm thankful for short weeks! We only have 2.5 days this week because of Thanksgiving on Thursday, and honestly, it's much needed, especially right after American Education week.

Day 26 - I'm thankful for half days. I love when the kids leave early.

Day 27 - I'm thankful for PBIS assemblies. I don't have to plan anything, and it's a great way for the students to have fun.

Day 28 - I'm thankful my Mom can cook a delicious Thanksgiving meal. If I had to cook Thanksgiving dinner, we'd all starve. No seriously. Actually, we'd be eating Chinese food. Thankfully she's a great cook!

Day 29 - I'm thankful for sales. I like a good sale price while shopping; it makes spending money a little easier.

Day 30 - I'm thankful it's the holiday season! I love this time of year, and Christmas is right around the corner. Christmas music, lights, presents, Christmas movies...I love everything about it!
