thankful thursday. {cheerful}

 i often write about my fabulous friends  and  family.
sometimes, those two labels overlap -
in a confusing(to explain), yet comfortable way.

last month,

we had my BIL and my sister, my BIL's  brother (also one of my oldest and dearest friends) and his wife and daughter (since that visit, they have added a daughter!) and their parents (like second parents to me, but I'll call them the Mr. & Mrs. for sake of their privacy) --->Yes, if you followed that, you figured out that my sister married (one of) "the boy(s) next door" from our childhood.<--- over for the day. 

After dinner, I was apologizing for my lack of mugs, saying since i didn't want a matching set, i wanted lots of color, it was taking me a while to grow my collection

This week, we received this gift.... 

from the Mr. & Mrs.

We are so blessed

to have such loving and thoughtful people in our lives!!

and those mugs are so cheerful,

that every time i look at them, i smile.


who are you thankful for?

Those mugs are awesome - I love mugs in those holders, I always want to buy some, but I already have too many mugs!

And today, I'm thankful that I fit in an old skirt I found in my closet and for lunch breaks (only an hour to go!).

Those are so cute! the colors too! Reminds me of spring.

I am also thankful for family and friends. Couldn't be where I am at today without all of them.

That was such a sweet gift. Isn't it nice to know that when you talk, people actually "listen." I don't know... but for some reason or another, when something of that nature happens to me, I'm amazed. I guess I am just a bit of a pessimist when thinking that when I talk about whatever, that people are actually interested in what I have to say. (, did that make any sense at all???)

I am so thankful for my dad for taking me fishing last weekend. It was so fun sitting on his tailgate and talking for five hours. even though we didn't catch anything, it was nice to just sit and visit.

How awesome is that? So thoughtful and sweet! And those mugs are perfect. They make me smile too.

I am so thankful for 2 best friends that I can completely be myself with and pick up where we left off every time...

They are SO adorable! I love cheerful things.

I am grateful I get to have a career where I can do what I love, and have more time to spend with the people who make me feel like I'm a million bucks :)

I just posted today about my sister. I think its one of my favourites so far. I love reading about family and friends. We don't tell people often enough how much they mean to us. What a great surprise and daily reminder of people who care about you. Thanks for the happy post!

Does Cinderelle count? She totally gives me a break. I'm also thankful for Belle and Aladdin as well.

Geeze those are cool! Love the colors and the stand.

I am so thankful for a good husband and our beautiful boy. I have all I've ever wanted, everything else is just the icing.

Thanks for your comments on my Welcome sign too, I was pleasantly surprised by how well it turned out. Have a great weekend!
