Day 15/ 30 Days of Thanksgiving

Today I am Grateful:
This has been such a great year for our family. It's been a full year...Full of many changes...mostly good. We've been "Empty Nesters" for a few months now..and it's been kind of nice. We've really been enjoying each other's company. The kids are all doing well in their lives. Our move to Wisconsin has been really nice as well . It's great to be around the extended family, and I'm enjoying my new home.

Day 13/ 30 Day of Thanksgiving

Today I am Thankful:

For Birthdays, Nieces and their babies, and Nephews.

Three of my Nieces and one of my Nephews. The Niece in the center has a Birthday tomorrow and my Nephew has a Birthday later this month. Today was actually the Birthday of my Nephew Tony. He was the sibling of the two on the right. He passed away 4 years ago in a car accident during Spring Break. He was with 4 other friends and they got caught in a freak snow storm that came out of nowwhere. Two of the other passengers also died that day, his girlfriend and another friend of hers.

The Babies all belong to the Nieces up above....One for each..LOL

Online Shopping

We just ordered this baby for the New House! I have wanted a Farmhouse Sink for ages, but Commander was fighting me on this as they usually seem soooo expensive....but.....we found this one over at!! I guess we'll soon see if it is worth it....

And.....we met with the Cabinet Maker today. He brought samples of the cabinet doors for the Kitchen. LOVE them!! The kitchen is mainly going to be White(more like Ivory) with an antique glazed finish. And then we'll have an island in a distressed Black. So far, we are thinking Granite counter tops. I pretty much know what I want, but we haven't actually picked it out yet.

30 Days of Thanksgiving/Day 12

Today I am Grateful:
For the life I have with the Commander. I don't always realize how truly blessed I am. I have an awesome husband that is able to provide for me and really does his best to make me happy. I don't always appreciate how hard he's worked, or how much he's sacrificed for me and our children. He is truly one of the "Good' guys!

Days 9 and 10/ 30 Days of Thanksgiving...

Yeah I I know...I missed a day.....looking at my blog it appears I missed Thursday but I really missed Friday....I must have blogged Thursday's Post after Midnight, so it showed up as Friday. Yesterday I missed because I had planned to blog about it in the evening after I got back from bringing dinner to my "builders". (i.e. Commander and his little brother)But.....we decided to head into Appleton after instead to pick up some tiles(for the current house that we are STILL remodeling..LOL) and check on his computer that has been with the Geek Squad for a good two weeks now...argg. We didn't get home until late and I was exhausted and went right to bed, so I never got my post up. Anyway....on to the 'gratitude"..LOL ..I'll list two things to make up for yesterday. Today I am Thankful:
The roof is nearly finished on the New House...
and that CDR plans to work on the Old House tomorrow....
As I menitoned above...we are STILL in the middle of remodeling THIS house, so I'm living in a half finished wreck of a house right now...and most of CDR's time is going to the New this one isn't getting better anytime soon!

Day 6/ 30 Days of Thanksgiving

Today I am Thankful:
Today as I watched the Fort Hood Memorial Service, I realized how Grateful I am for those who serve our country and keep us safe. At the moment I have two family members serving over in Afghanistan. I would so appreciate any prayers you can offer up for their safe return home.
My brother Ed is in the Air Force and will be in Afghanistan for the couple more months.
Ed with our mom at CDRs Retirement Ceremony
And my Nephew(in law) Tom has just deployed to Afghanistan . He will be there for at least a year.

30 Days Thanksgiving....Day Four

Today I am Grateful for:
Finally breaking the 195 mark in my weightloss! I know this might sound silly to some...or even shallow...but it's been YEARS since I've made it below 196. I haven't really been 'trying' all that hard to lose weight these days... just trying to cut back on servings, eat more 'healthy' foods, drink more water and move around a little more. Just baby steps, which is why I'm excited to have broken a barrier that I haven't seen for years.
