thankful thursday

This Thursday I am thankful for:

1) My dear friend Amy. It is her birthday today. She is one of my bestest friends ever. We were college roommates for 4 years and played volleyball together at Troy. She knows me inside and out. She is one of those people that you just feel calmer by being around her. Seriously. She is grounded, wise and tender-hearted. She will tell me things I might not want to hear, but in such a way that I don't mind hearing them. She has the most beautiful family (with the newest addition just arriving 6 weeks ago). Happy birthday Amy... I love you!

2) Golden Oreo Cakesters. Oh.my.goodness. Have you tried these things? I thought the Golden Oreos were amazing... but these take the cake! Literally. The fluffy cake-like texture and creamy filling is to-die-for. Seriously, what am I going to do when I have kids one day and am trying to convince them to eat healthy... as I stuff my face with Oreo Cakesters and Dr. Pepper?


3) Chapstick. I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to chapstick. I use it numerous times throughout the day and have various brands/flavors scattered throughout the house... in the bathroom drawer, on the bedside table, in the container on the coffee table, on my desk, and 2 in my purse. My personal favorites are Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick (this looks exactly like a giant glue stick, no lie) and Arbonne's Lip Saver Sunscreen with SPF 30 (a little more expensive, but Arbonne has fabulous products and is completely animal friendly).
