A thankful me - 14

Monday is here for all to cheer! I’d like to know how many actually cheer for Mondays. Poor sad Mondays never get the love they deserve. So far, I’m still loving April (in case you’re wondering). Too many good things are going on its ridiculous!

My weekend proved to be a very nice one with my family. Got plenty of time with my mom and dad and sister and her family. Which by the way, my sister pulled me aside to inform me that they don’t put candy in their Easter eggs therefore I won’t get to steal any from the kids. I really should get her to stop reading my blog. I can’t have her knowing all my plans!!

This week I’m thankful for:
- my 6 year old niece giving me a neck, hand and foot massage. There’s no child labor law being broken when they offer to do it, right??
- stepping out of my room to find an Easter basket at the foot of my door from my Dad. You’re never to old to get an Easter basket, in my opinion. ~I love my Dad~
- all the time I got with my parents. Its never enough but I’ll take the time we do get together.
- all the delicious food we made for Easter Sunday. Mom made these Cheesecake stuffed strawberries and they were absolutely delicious. And very addicting!

- God’s amazing blessings. I can’t even begin to describe all that He’s doing for me right now but I’m blown away.
- new beginnings.
- my tax returns. This is the first time since I’ve lived in the state of CA that I get money back from the state. That’s 9 years that I’ve had to pay them. Now they get to pay me. I love it.
- my niece who turned 12 on Easter day. These kids are getting too old too fast.

I sure hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend.

Remember, you have 2 more days to do your self portraits. Wednesday is almost upon us!
Have a wonderful start to your week! Pin It Now!

Cheesecake stuffed strawberries!!!!!!! Sounds heavenly and here I am holding back on the sweet things before I go on vacation!!!

So glad you got to spend quality time with your family. It is true that the time we have with loved ones is seldom enough.

Cheesecakey stuff looks AH-MAH-ZING!! So awesome.

Aw, family time is so good. I miss my mum, I haven't seen her in ages. I might go down this weekend and visit her. Parents are the best!

Megan said...

Ohhh, those look so good! I want! And yes, I agree, never too old for an Easter basket! I got one, too!

SO sweet that your Daddy gave you an Easter basket. I especially love that Easter candy fan, I'm sure you will get great use out of that in your newest endeavor. I can see you now. Lady Professional, sitting at her desk, overcome with the urge to whip out her Easter candy fan from the top desk drawer....

Or maybe not. But, you never know... ;)
