Thankful Thursday: Sick Toddler & Spontaneous Outings

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 nights out with my hubby and parents. Last night Ronnie, my parents, and I went to a John Mayer concert. I love John Mayer and LOVE time with my hubby and parents.

I'm thankful for a sick toddler. Ok, I'm not thankful that Mckenna is sick, but I am thankful for the remind to appreciate good health.

I'm thankful for TV. There, I said it. I'm thankful for TV and the ability to use it as a babysitter for short little periods when I need a quick break or a distraction while I need to get something done. Does that make me a bad mom? Umm, I don't think so - I'm not putting on Saw or Chuckie :)

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for a healthy baby. Mckenna is sick right now, and it makes me appreciate the times she's healthy even more. Not that she isn't being a trooper, she is, but I'd rather her feel well :) She's coughing up a storm until the point that she throws-up and keeps saying, "Mckenna sick, no gym" (she can't go to gym childcare sick). She's so sweet.

I'm thankful for spontaneous outings. My father-in-law and mother-in-law invited Mandi and I to the John Mayer concert last night and we had a blast. I'm not the biggest JM fan in the world, but I do like his style and of course I know his classics. Phil Phillips opened up, which was cool, because I'm a big American Idol fan.

I'm thankful for support. I know I've mentioned this one before, but I don't know how people make it without a supportive spouse. I'm thankful that Mandi supports me even when it's not ideal for her and I have another one of my crazy ideas/hobbies/projects/careers that I'd like to start (THANKS BOO!!!!).

What about you? What are you thankful for today?
