My friend over at The Cape on the Corner inspired me to join in on the Thankful Thursdays posts. As I've said in the past, I have a hard time being positive and usually focus on the negatives in my life. That's why this blog is called The Pursuit of Happiness and it helps to remind me what makes me happy.
There are the obvious things to be thankful for like family, friends, etc, but what about all the little things that keep you going? So here's a few things I'm thankful for this week:
1. Pumpkin anything
As much as I hate fall because it turns into winter, I love pumpkins. Pumpkin-flavored food gets me so excited and I love picking out the perfect pumpkin every year. Speaking of pumpkins, I did want to add that my miracle pumpkin that I saved from last year has finally died. It started getting icky a couple weeks ago and I decided it was time to say goodbye.
2. My sock monkey
I have had a slight obsession with sock monkeys ever since that Kia commercial came out last year. I kept saying that I wanted one, but never wanted to spend the money. For our wedding anniversary, Hubby surprised me with a handmade sock monkey that we saw months earlier. The day he gave it to me was a very stressful and emotional day for me so it was the perfect surprise to snuggle up with. Ever since then, he always reminds me to hug the sock monkey when I'm having a bad day. (Eww...can I be any more pasty on our anniversary in August?)
3. My car in the garage
My car is back in the garage! After some small projects, we finally have everything cleaned up so I can park in there. Just as it's getting cold, I needed this! I parked outside for 5 years at our old house and I'm so glad not to have to do that anymore.
4. My BFF, Kitty
He's there for me through thick and thin giving unconditional love.
5. Bravo TV
Seriously, what would we do without our daily fix of trash, drama and reality shows?
What are you thankful for today?
