Thankful Thursday: New Motivation & Dried Mango

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 new motivation. Lately I've been motivated to do more and learn more. I've never been super lazy or just sat around not being driven to do anything, but lately I've been craving growth in my life, and it's been awesome.

I'm thankful for Nordstrom Rack. I bought sneaker at Nordstrom Rack a few weeks back. I have always run in Asics, but I tried running in the shoes (Nikes) and holy cannoli, they feel AWESOME to run in. I'm so thankful for "cheap" sneaks from The Rack and for learning that work (sometimes) better for runs.

I'm thankful for phone calls. I was out of town last weekend and again Wednesday for work. I miss Ronnie and Mckenna while I'm gone, but it is SO nice to be able to get a phone call from Mckenna. She somehow seems SO old when she legit talks to me on the phone. I love it!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for dried mango. Every time I go to Costco, I do my best at not purchasing the large bag of dried mango. Not because I don't love it, but because it's hard for me not to eat the entire bag in one sitting. I've been doing my best portion control with this last bag, but it's still disappearing to fast! 

I'm thankful for sports and fellowship. I recently started playing for my church softball team and it feels good to be active in a sport again. It's been a while since I slapped the leather (in fact, the last time was with another church's softball team) and there is no doubt that I'm a step slower and my reaction time is not what it used to be. It's also amazing how long it takes for my body to recover from games or practices. It's a good pain though, right?

I'm thankful for quite time. My quite time in the morning has been going really great and I absolutely love it. The house is quite. The house is dimly lit. I'm usually the only one breathing in the same room :) There's nothing like peace and quite when you're raising a youngster.

What about you? What are you thankful for today?
