Gratitude 11.04.2010

Today i am thankful for:
  1. lunch breaks: gives me time to blog. but today, i am really thankful that Cruz was home when he was for lunch. Someone randomly opened our garage door. The person used the key pad. (We hadn't changed it since we moved in.) They opened the door, then closed it. I guess when they saw that it wasn't the model home anymore... they figured they had the wrong place. Cruz heard the door open and close. Only to see that they drove away. Nothing was taken. But the door key code was changed!!! Lucky he was home.
  2. mascara: silly, i know. it makes me look awake. i like it.
  3. presents: i like them. i like to give them. got to buy some for cruz's family yesterday. i hope they fit, and that they like them.
  4. flats: i have wimpy feet, and they don't love heels... so flats are my friends.
  5. pantone book: a book filled with swatches of color, a designers best friend. 
I would love to hear what you are thankful for... please leave a comment.

NOVEMBER reminds me to have gratitude!

It is NOVEMBER (already!) and I started to think about how quickly time goes by. I started to think about the holidays that are coming. AND I've been thinking I want to be more thankful for  all the blessings in my life. I got thinking about President Monson's talk from General Conference. So, I am going to blog this month about things I am thankful for. (i'll probably blog about other stuff too.)  I hope that I can do it often, and I hope it gets me ready for THANKSGIVING... even though I will spend thanksgiving day in an airport (going to meet my family in VENEZUELA...YAY!)—it is still my favorite holiday.

So today i am thankful for:

  1. family: We had a great time together for halloween, i was impressed with all the costumes. We ate yummy food, and had a good time just being together.
  2. cruz: i love him. he is the best. he calls me at lunch just to see how my day is going.
  3. kathy j.: she is our lifesaver. she drives me to work, even though it isn't really on her way. she is nice. she tells great stories.
  4. blankets: my best friend in the coolness of the season. cuddly and warm.
  5. our home: it is new. we live inside it. it has open space so our family and friends can visit and gather together. it is pretty.
