Thankful 3

Well, I completely missed my Saturday thankful post...but I swear last week didn't even happen. It feels like I completely missed it because Mr. B got sick, then I got sick. I think I took one picture last week and no fun was really had until aboutttt yesterday.

That said, this week I am thankful for good health. Nothing is worse than trying to care for a little one when you can't even take care of yourself. I am also beyond grateful that Hudson didn't get sick!

Other thankful bullet points....
  • My feminist husband. For reals. I hesitated labeling him as a feminist, but he really and truly is. He has NEVER come home from work and expected dinner done, laundry put away, or the house cleaned. He helps with every part of the housework and takes amazing care of our son ALL.THE.TIME. And sure, he probably cares more about WOW than women's rights...but he believes in women's rights. He respects women and respects me and believes in equality for women and I am SO proud & thankful to be his wife for all the above reasons. (and about a million more)
  • Meant to but forgot to mention how completely grateful I am for the right to vote on my last post!!! Also the fact that I get to do it in the comfort of my home...I've got it good!
  • I'm thankful for reality bitch slaps...pardon my French!!! After being sick and having a nasty week, I had a bit of a gigantic pity party for myself. Alex was the only unfortunate guest. I complained about pretty much everything, not having my family in town, hating my neighborhood, blah, blah, cried some...and long story short acted like an ungrateful brat for an hour. The next day I am driving home from a much needed girl-date and I see a gazillion cop cars, ambulances, firetrucks a few blocks from my house. Heart starts POUNDING. Mind starts RACING. OMG are my boys ok? Why was I such a jerk? What was my problem? I just want to hug and kiss them and tell them I am so happy to have them as my boys and promise to never be a jerk ever again! As I approach I realize it isn't my house but I notice a car in the middle of the road on fire and crews attempting to get a person out who is stuck. GEEZ. That could be me. That could be my family-the people I love...REALITY B&%@# SLAP! Oh man. Talk about brutal but necessary. To make it up to him I'll probably be baking one of these...

  • Speaking of girl-dates I'm thankful for my few "golden" friends who love me despite my homebody hermit-ness. These gals don't mind if I don't call/text back immediately or if I have to cancel plans because of the babe. I'm talking the kind of friends that even though it's been a few weeks, (or in the case of my Boise girls, years) when you get together it feels like you pick up where you left off. Friends I don't feel judged by...I can just show up in a hoodie and pony-tail and feel comfortable with. I love having these ladies in my life and I feel lucky to call them friends. 
  • I'm excited and thankful we will get to spend Thanksgiving with Alex's family in Clarkston. In the past we have spent T-Day alone or with a friend or two...which can be nice and low key...but we both agree that we miss the craziness of a big family get-together! 
Hope you are able to enjoy the holiday with those you love most!!!

Happy Happy Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!


  1. I seriously love that you do this. I'm glad you are feeling better, the sickness has hit our house too and it's no bueno for sure! I also get bitch slapped pretty frequently, it's kind of like a blessing in disguise because it reminds me to hug my hubby and babies extra hard. You are an AMAZING woman, I wish you lived near us and we could have a big ol' Thanksgiving together! Love you bunches!

  2. Yay! I'm so excited to see you!!!!
