i am thankful

Happy (three days after) Thankgiving, y'all!

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

We spent Thanksgiving break (hallelujah a break!) in Fort Payne with my family and had make-up Thanksgiving lunch today with the Snows. I'm so full of dressing I think I might explode... We loved seeing everyone and celebrating everything God blessed us with!

My aunt Regina came up with a game to play at Mawmaw's. We each came up with something we were thankful for besides the obvious (awesome family, cars with heat and AC, a safe home, jobs, great friends, a loving God, ect.), wrote it on a slip of paper, and had to guess who wrote what. We know each other pretty well because we all guessed right off the bat! Tom and I continued to play our own game of it and here's what we came up with:

- cranberry sauce from the can
- indoor plumbing
- Walking Dead and Call of Duty for teaching us how to survive zombie attacks
-  the A'Chocolypse and Cinnapsis bars hiding in my purse. We love Sweeteeth!
- The Office and New Girl for giving us hours of hilarious entertainment (I've been repeating Zooey's line "I got the last turkey in AMERICA!" all week! So far Tommy hasn't made me stop but I'm sure he's glad the holiday is over!)
- spell check for helping us look smarter than we are
- Jack the Dog
- a vacation from the schools we are both so blessed to attend
- fried rice, sushi, and shrimp sauce
- hard times that teach us to be strong
- love. For exsisting and making everything worth it.

Even with the silly stuff, we are truly blessed. I love the crazy family I was born into as well as the great big one I've recently become a part of. I love having true friends I can count on for anything. I adore having a my sweet, goofy husband and fluffy puppy to come home to every day. Thank you God for these blessings and many more!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! What are some things you are most thankful for?

how very unlike me...

It seems I have taken a liking to things that I normally don't care for at all!

For instance, one of my favorite new songs is Easy by Rascal Flatts ft. Natasha Beddingfield. I don't understand why?! I hate Rascal Flatts! He's nasally and has a terrible haircut. I mean, in all seriousness, if he has all that famous people money, why is he still walking around with 1993 frosted spikes?

But I do love harmony and duets. It's a love-should hate-love relationship I have with this song.

If you know me at all you, you know that I don't do scary movies and I don't do gore. No exceptions. If I watch something scary I will dwell on it for month and terrify myself. I didn't make it through Signs or Zombieland! I much prefer to think on good things and put happy images in my head!

However, last week Bradon came over to watch Walking Dead with Tommy and now I'm hooked!

The whole show is about a super creepy zombie apocalypse and the few people who haven't been effected, trying to escape death and infection (a lot like I Am Legend). The zombies freakin eat people alive! It's horrifying! But the plot is so intense and every second is filled with this crazy suspense that I can't stop watching! At least until that scummy Shane gets killed off.

Never fear though, nothing about me has changed. I'm also very much in love with Once Upon A Time! It makes me want to be a princess even more because Snow White and Cinderella kick some major villan butt!

Are you ever oddly fascinated by something sooo not you?
What was it?

the most magical place on earth!

That's right! We went to Disney World!

Tommy's parents had to go to a food show in Orlando and we were lucky enough to escape from school and revert back to our childhood for a few days. IT WAS SOOOOO FFFUUUNNNNN!!!

Thursday we went to Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios with Dave and Melodi

Friday we ate Moroccan and chased down characters in Epcot with Holli and Matt

We spent all Saturday in Magic Kingdom! It was Christmas there!

Sadly, my camera broke before we did anything so I don't really have any pictures, but Tommy took a bunch with his phone so hopefully I can put them on Facebook soon! For now, check out these!
