Thankful Thursday

I feel like such a blog slacker these days. And by these days, I really mean ever since I started this blog. I really want to be better about updating this, but between cuddling my sweet boy, changing diapers, feeding him, and then trying to catch up on laundry (which, by the way, never seems to stop piling up!) and cleaning up a little I just feel like I have zero time. I'm going to work on making time for it because this whole finding time thing just isn't working and I really do enjoy it!

I think link-ups are really fun. This is my second one so far, but I see many more of them in my future. Here is my Thankful Thursday list. There are so many people in my life that I love to pieces, and I wanted to thank a few of them. Feel free to join in! If you blog, think about writing a post, but if you don't, leave a comment with the things you're thankful for.

I'm thankful for:
-Caramel Apple Spice from Starbucks. Yum! It's like Fall in a cup. I had my first one of the season yesterday and it was WONDERFUL!
-Chilly weather.
-A country where, regardless of your political beliefs, people genuinely want to fight for the greater good.
-My cricut machine.
-Logan's rolls. I mean, seriously. Is there anything better in the world?
-The New Normal. I am LOVING that show. So great.
-These people:

I am so thankful for my wonderful husband. He is my best friend. He knows how to make me laugh and how to calm me down. I don't know what in the world I'd do without him.

My Mama. She is my other best friend. We have the same thoughts about pretty much everything. We find the same things to be absolutely hilarious and we are both ridiculously cheesy. She is wonderful and has the biggest heart out of anyone I've ever met. There are no words to say how wonderful she really is. I'm the luckiest daughter ever. 

I'm so grateful to have wonderful friends in my life. There are so many people who have been there for me and my family. Lori, what would I do without you in Athens? I'm so glad we are both here and that our wonderful husbands work together. You are the most generous and giving friend and I'm so glad to have you in my life and in Will's. You are already one of his favorite people.

Charissa, can I please tell you how happy I am that our friendship traveled from Milledgeville to Athens? I am so glad that once again we are only a five minute drive from each other. I can't wait to make even more silly memories with you, my sweet friend. 

Melissa, thank you for putting up with me and my crazy self for oh, what, about 16 or 17 years now? You are a wonderful constant in my life and I'm so thankful for you. Thank you for all of the advice you've given, the sleepless nights we had at slumber parties staying up way too late and eating lots of Reese's, and for making me a stronger person. 

 Kahlin- Thank you for your caring friendship. I can always count on you to check in on me and my family and to genuinely care about the things going on my life. I care about you and your sweet family, too, and I'm so glad that we live closer now so our families can have more fun times together. You have such a caring heart.
Will- thank you for being the most perfect little guy ever. You already sleep somewhere between five and seven hours straight at night which I can't believe since you're only 8 weeks old. You are such a calm, cuddly guy and I can't wait to see you continue to grow. I love you more than you will ever, ever know.
