the good things in life and TTOD

Happy Monday!  I have SO MUCH to do this week. It's going to fly by, I know, but I hope it doesn't go too quickly because then I won't have time to get everything done.  My goal is to have everything (8-10 pg research paper, stat homework) done by Thursday at noon.  I know those two things don't sound like a lot, but I'm only on page 2ish of the research paper.  It's on banned children's books.  Wish me luck!

I'm trying to distract myself by thinking about...
the good things in life:
  • freshly washed, silky hair
  • puppy love
  • waking up before your alarm actually feeling refreshed
  • long phone calls with someone you miss
  • shy grins
  • friendship bracelets
  • short sleeves in november - today. is. beautiful.
  • sidewalk chalk
  • blog friends
  • polar bear coca-cola cans
  • snail mail
  • thursday night games - main reason I want to get done by thurs at noon
  • new socks
  • awesome moms

Just gonna think those happy thoughts and chug along!  And also be reassured that as of noon on Thursday (when I have everything done) I will officially be on Thanksgiving Break!! This is my TTOD...a break from school. I am so thankful to have a whole week off of school.  I will spend the first half at home, still working because the kiddies only get three days off, and spending time with momma.  I will then go with Steven's family to PA for the second half.  I'm pretty excited, to say the least.

Definitely in the Top 3 of my favorite times of the year.

I hope everyone has started off to a good week!


  1. Such a wonderful list of gratitude! I truly think we can get through ANYTHING by being thankful for everything that is right in our lives....Which really is so much. Good luck on your paper!

  2. I have a research paper due this week too, so I can definitely relate when you say your week is going to fly by! Good luck!

  4. Those definitely are some good things in life! Good luck on your paper!

  5. Polar Bear coke cans make me SO happy :) Good luck getting everything done!!

  6. I love this list! you are on of the most positive people I know (well maybe I don't know you in real life)! Sometimes I forget to think of all the good things that are happening in my life because I get so caught up on the negative stresses. I am glad you included blog friends on your list!! Good luck with everything this week! Thanksgiving will be here before you know it!!

  7. I love this time of year so much too! Jealous you get such a long break- ours is not nearly long enough. Love that you're staying positive! And oh my word I wore short sleeves today too! SO WARM!

  8. I love every single one of those things you listed!!!! :o)

    I may have asked you this before, but what is your major? Your research paper actually sounds pretty interesting! :o)


Thank you for the sweet comments! xo!
