Thankful Thursday: Wedded Bliss & Fans

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 4 years of wedded bliss :) Today Ronnie and I celebrate 4 years together as husband and wife and I’m so thankful for every day, month and year together. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in this life.

I’m thankful for having Ronnie home. Ronnie got home Monday night from his 2.5 week stay, and it has been amazing having him home!! Life is so much better with him under the same roof.

I’m thankful for a wonderful babysitter. Mckenna has had a babysitter come hang out with her on Thursday afternoons for the last couple months so that Ronnie and I can get some work done together. The last couple of weeks Mckenna has been especially clingy (I think Ronnie being gone may have driven this), and has been out of character when the sitter comes (full of tears, fits, sadness and fear)…Mckenna has insisted on starting the time in bed, reading by herself or “sleeping”. Our sweet sitter just waits her out and loves her anyways. Within 30 minutes, Mckenna is usually ready to play. I am so thankful for a sitter who understands a child’s heart, loves unconditionally, and is a lot of fun.

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for 4 years of marriage! I can't believe I was able to trick another human being to spend 4 years with me (6 including our dating years). God has truly blessed me with an incredible partner in crime that I absolutely love doing life with. Here's to another 40...that is crazy...and sounds very tiring...but with Mandi, I am willing ;)

I'm thankful for vanilla soy milk. I don't think I've ever tried the stuff before last week, and now I can't get enough of it! Now, I don't drink it by itself, but in iced coffee, although I don't mind the taste of it as a standalone. I also have to give a shout-out to my wifey for pumping out the iced coffees for me!! 

I'm thankful for fans. This time of year it starts to get incredibly hot back in my office (it was an addition to the house and doesn't have the best airflow). I picked up a standing fan at Costco that also came with a little desk fan. Now I have air blasting my face, body and top of my head (from the room fan above) to try and combat the heat exhaustion that I feel while I'm working ;)

What are you thankful for today?
