Thankful Thursday - Illustrated style

This has been a CRAPPY week.  Horrible really.  I blame pre-marathon jitters and the lack of the brown bubbly.
But I am DETERMINED to find things to be thankful for!

Cool things that come in the mail.  I ordered this to support HER fundraising - and I absolutely love it!!
I'd be even more thankful everyone would donate a little more to her efforts!

More cool things that come in the mail.  Remember when I did this?  My prize finally came.  I had my choice of choosing a picture from their gallery (but I looked awful in all of them) or submit my own.  How could I not submit this cute one?  Love that Risa Runjah!

Good friends who come out to support a JDRF fundraiser even when it's way before dinner time and a last minute event.
(l-r)  Olivia, Risa, Me, Germ, Roger aka Santa, Frankie, Adam, Tib, Ava, and Amelia
Behind the camera is Jamie.  Naughty girl wouldn't get into the pic!
So much fun!  And even though I am pretty sure we scared Santa and Frankie with our naughtiness (nope no Christmas presents for me), they didn't run away from us when we said goodbye so I will take that as a good sign!

I've decided that I am going to be especially thankful for when it is Saturday at about noon.  I should hopefully be done by then, and relaxing in the shade with a LARGE, icy diet coke in my hand!

Whatchoo thankful for today?  (and if you mention brown bubbles - I am over the ledge)

If it makes you feel any better, I haven't had any brown bubblies this week either. I know....doesn't help.

Sorry it's been a crappy week.

I'm thankful that tomorrow is bunko. Even if it is at my house. And my remodeling project isn't done.

And I'm also thankful tomorrow starts the beginning of fall break for my kids.

And jammie church this weekend - yay!!

Saturday is the day I go off my brown bubbles, so please drink extra for me. No more until Christmas. I think I can, I think I can.

And I am thankful for Icy Hot. Or at least my homeopathic version of it.

Saturday at noon: Pour yourself a tall glass of brown bubbly. Maybe even 44 ounces.

I am thankful that I just got my hair colored tonight! I am blonde again!

I am going to buy you one of those ridiculous mugs (64 oz)! Yes, I have one too. You deserve it!

Good luck!

Maybe it's the season . . . I just can't seem to get myself up and going this week. But reflecting on gratitude always gives me an instant pickup.

GOOD LUCK with the RUN!!
