This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) My husband. I am so grateful for Lance. Really, he should be on this list every single week. I really missed him over the past week and it feels so good to be home. He is my best friend... he makes me laugh everyday... he cooks more than I do... he cleans the house when I'm gone... he buys me flowers "just because"... he encourages me in my passions... he seeks the Lord as he leads our marriage... Told you... he really should be on this list every single week. I love you Lance... thank you for all you do and how you bless our marriage.

2) Dr. Pepper. I know this seems pretty shallow to put on the list right under my husband... and it is... but people, I gave up Dr. Pepper for 45 WHOLE DAYS. That is a long time for a Dr. Pepper addict. I am still trying to keep my soda intake to a minimum, but that first Dr. Pepper I had after Lent was over tasted pretty darn good. And I will probably have one today... not gonna lie.

3) My college girlfriends. This past weekend I attended the wedding of one of my very dear friends. She and I played college volleyball together and were roommates for 4 years. It was so great to see not only her, but some of my other dear college friends too. These girls pretty much know me inside and out. We spent countless hours laughing on long bus rides...practicing on the volleyball court... having heart-to-hearts late at night... you name it... these girls know me and I am so, so thankful for them.

I always love reading all of the Thankful Thursday link-ups each week... some make me laugh, some make me nod in agreement, and some just warm my heart. Last week I loved reading Salena's post over from McKay Moments about her family's spring break and trip to the zoo... but my favorite part was #4... "home sweet home," mainly because I could relate so much this week... just like Salena said, vacations are great, but there's just something about having some down time at home. Amen.
