Give Thanks

 cCm, me, and tBh
Time to Give Thanks. Here is what I am thankful for:
  • My dad who is hard at work every day to support my sister, mom, and I
  • My sister for getting into her first choice college! I am so proud of her!
  • My mom for cooking such delicious meals while I am home from college and for being a great mother!
  • Healthy friends and family
  • My cute pup and his pretty scarves for the holiday season
  • My blog readers! I love each and every one of you and am so happy and thankful for all of the connections I have made these past 2 and a half years!
  • My new bright red nail polish-- I can't get enough-- It's Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in cherry red and was only $3 at Walmart (talk about a steal)!
  • The semester almost being over. While I don't want college to end, I am ready to be done with these professors and all of the papers I have had to write. It was easily the most writing I have ever done in one semester. 
  • Hot coffee. Amen. 
  • My recently new iPhone that makes connecting easier than ever. 
  • Frank Sinatra Christmas Music 
  • My dad's warm cozy sweaters-- I stole borrowed from him. Seriously, wearing over-sized cable knits to lounge in is so wonderful.
  • Having access to clean water and delicious food. After attending the Hunger Banquet event that I recently attended and have mentioned briefly on Twitter has really changed my outlook on life. Of course, I want some of the latest and greatest, but it really makes me realize how luck I am that I have clean water and food because many do not have that luxury.
  • My education. 
  • My new car. 
  • Not having to cook a thing on Thanksgiving--Thanks, Mom! (I really don't enjoy cooking)
  • Skiing weather is almost here!
  • Christmas movies (Home Alone, The Holiday, Meet Me in St. Louis, The Family Stone, The Grinch, etc.)
  • Scented candles--so calming 
  • Looking forward to staying at a gorgeous hotel to celebrate the end of the semester in Washington, D.C. with my family and friends. 
  • Down blankets. They are the best. 
So much more, I can't even list. So what are you thankful for? What are you hopeful for in the coming year? Wishing everyone a blessed Thanksgiving. Remember to be thankful for even the tiniest of things this Holiday season.
