Three Things Thursday, 6/5/2014

Three Things Thursday is an exercise in gratitude that began over on Nerd In The Brain, another awesome blog.  Every Thursday I highlight three things from the week that I am grateful and/or made me happy.  It is a highlight of those little extra things in life that you don’t always have time to stop and enjoy.  A celebration of life’s gravy.  Feel free to steal this idea for yourself as well 🙂 This week I am thankful for….   Grandparents.

Grammy and Grampy F, and Grammy and Grampy D who live close by have been lifesavers this week which turned out to be exceptionally busy.  From driving across the state to watch Liam while I worked this weekend and the hubs was out of town to taking Liam so the hubs and I could go out for a last minute business dinner with an out of town engineer the grandparents that are nearby have been lifesavers this week. Liam is also lucky enough to have another set of grandparents that live in Florida and give us an excuse to go on vacation in the winter (as well as sending cool mail, but these are things to be thankful of for a different day)

Next up is this AWESOME Bumkin insulated food tote:

Every month Liam gets a package of toys and stuff from a company that had also given us a gift card for his birthday… on a whim (because even the shipping was free for this item) we picked out this… the tote that I didn’t even know I needed.  It’s insulated, the food is out of the diaper bag so no longer is getting squished AND there is enough room for Momma to put a snack in for herself too.  Plus it has alligators on it.  It doesn’t get any cooler than that, unless of course you are a stuffed Boston Terrier wearing hot pink shades and a cool hat… that might win.

Last up for the week is…

This blanket.  Well, not really the blanket… its just a nice, warm blanket that is perfect for puppies to cuddle into on the couch.  It is the way the blanket cam to be in our living room that I am thankful for.  Yesterday, after getting up at the crack of dawn (literally) so I could get the entire house full of puppies and babies ready to bring Leroy in for his last post surgical vet visit we came home and Liam passed out… apparently he doesn’t appreciate being woken up early.  I was bouncing from the massive amounts of caffeine I had sucked down so I decided to clean out the basement.  You know, on a whim, because it seemed like the thing to do.  While I was down there I found a brand new set of queen sized sheets and this blanket that I did not know we had.  Both items were on the household shopping list, but I had yet to make it out to purchase them.  i feel like I just saved $50… which is awesome… do you know how much Starbucks that buys?

Well, that is it for this week for me..  What are you thankful for today?
