Everyone is the blogosphere is going to write a 'What I'm Thankful For' post today and I am, too. But mine? Will not be like anyone else's. Sure, I am thankful for my family, my friends, my house, etc. but I'm probably going to be over hearing about everyone's family by the end of the day and I'm sure you will, too, so I will spare you! Instead, I will write about the teeny tiny things in my life that I'm thankful for.

Strange Spoons This one is insanely helpful around the house and I love it to the moon and back. It's perfect for many things, such as scraping out little yogurt containers, eating an avacado, stirring my tea, and eating food when I am out of regular spoons.

Yoga Ball It's a great foot rest as well as a back stretcher, though I rarely use it for actual yoga. Vince enjoys bouncing the ball towards Roxanne and watching her get nervous.

Mason Jars I am QUEEN at breaking stuff. I just have to look at a nice expensive things and poof! it's shattered. Mason jars are awesome though and rarely seem to break. Luckily we have wood floors, which helps prevent them from breaking as well. I think I've only broken one in the past year! These are the only cups we have aside from coffee mugs and I love them. It's also super classy when our friends are over and we serve wine in them...haha!

What? How did those Twilight books get there?! Hehe I must admit that I got two of them from the libraries Summer Reading Program for free and the other two were $.50! 
Built in Shelves Our house is so teeny and it would be even smaller if we had to have a stand-out bookshelf. It's so nice to store books and some craft stuff on it! We also have built in shelves in the bathroom lining one wall (a whole 5 feet wide, our bathroom is teeny as well!) and it's kind of a catchall for stuff that won't fit elsewhere.

Electric Heater We have a behemoth gas heater in our living room that takes up so much room but doesn't heat the whole house. It just makes the living room like a sauna and the rest of the house freezing. It's nice to have this electric heater that I can move around the house with me that works super well. I highly recommend it, it's not too expensive and it great!

Pre-Thanksgiving Food That My Husband Made and Then Served So Tastefully I mean seriously, how can I not be thankful for him and a tamale with an over-easy egg?!


  1. Aw I love it! And I LOVE your built-in bookshelves! I'm pretty sure I even said that when we came to your house, or I at least said it to Ryan right after we left lol. 

    We are madly in love with our electric space heater too. =]
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I'm glad you like them! =) Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

  3. :) that book shelf is awesome!

    thanks for linking up and sharing some of the (very cool!) things you are thankful for!
