Well the hustle and bustle of the holiday season has begun! I started working a part-time job at a children's clothing store, for some extra $$. It will help to get some of those bills paid off and put a little extra away for some fun activities!
With Thanksgiving approaching we all stop to think about what we are thankful for...now although I haven't done a daily post on this I have a list of 30 things I am thankful for. There are so many more I could list...
  1. My Hubby, he is my rock and is always there for me. Knows when to make me laugh, when to lend his shoulder and most of all when to tell me to CHILL OUT!!
  2. Emmah, she is my first born the one who first made me a mom. She has grown up so much this last year and really made some postitive changes. I am more and more proud of her everyday!
  3. Jake, he is a goofy one and I don't know what we would do without him. I love my little momma's boy, he is growing into quite the little athlete and young man.
  4. My job. I work with some truly AWESOME people!!
  5. My other job. Those guys are AWESOME too!!
  6. My mom. She was one totally awesome lady and taught me so much. I wouldn't be half the mom I am today if not for her. I miss her so much everyday and especially around the hoidays...
