Thankful Thursday: Routine & Mother's Day (early)

It's thankful Thursday time! We all have so much to be thankful for and we love to take this opportunity just to write down each and everything that comes to mind. Please take this time to share with us what you're thankful for as well. If you have a blog expressing your thankfulness, please share the link! Without further ado, here's what we're thankful for:

Mandi's List:

I'm thankful for nursing bras. Yup, I went there. This isn't really as a result of anything that happened in the last week. But for a momma who has nursed 6 months straight and plans to nurse through Mckenna's first year, I appreciate these fine inventions. *Click*, boob out, feed, *Click*, boob hidden. Beautiful.

I'm thankful for sippy cups. They are not only a great way to have kids be able to drink without spilling all over, but they provide A TON of entertainment for kids and adults alike. Mckenna is occupied as long as the cup is in hand, and watching her use it provides laughs for any adult nearby....yes, we do laugh AT her from time to time...only in the most loving of ways of course.

I'm thankful for routine. Everyone in the Sharpe household functions better with a routine. And I LOVE it!

I'm thankful for celebrating Mother's Day a bit early. We won't be able to celebrate with my mom when Mother's Day rolls around this year, so we were proactive and celebrated it today with her! We let her tell us what kind of food she was feeling (Chinese) and then picked a place with a little help from Yelp! The food was good, but the company was even better. Thank you for everything that you are mom - I wouldn't be alive without you!

I'm thankful that plants can be brought back from the "dead". The other morning I walked out to find all of my spaghetti and acorn squash clinging to life. It seemed to happen overnight and came out of nowhere. It's hard to describe what the leaves looked like, but let's just say that I have never seen non-dead leaves more droopy. I thought for sure that some type of bug got to them or they were just a victim of the Arizona sun. I gave them a very generous soak, and wouldn't you know it, 3 hours later, they looked brand new. I still marvel at how it all works!

I'm thankful for peeps willing to be guest bloggers. Some of the best stories on this blog are from guests whom I have approached or have approached me in order to share their story. If you missed last Saturday by the way, you should definitely go back and read it, AMAZING. But anyway, this blog would be nothing without the community involvement it gets and for that, I am very thankful!!

So, what are you thankful for today?
