I have had some computer problems this week and I finally have it up and working again. Sorry I've been unable to blog the last couple days, but I thought I'd make up for missing yesterday's Thankful Thursday post by writing a Thankful Friday post. Most of all, I'm thankful that it IS Friday. I'm definitely ready for the weekend! Enjoy and have a great weekend!
I took this pic at the Houston Dynamo game on Saturday night. Husband and I got tickets from our friend Blake after Blake's wife had twin baby girls on Friday. Originally it was supposed to be Blake and Husband at the game but Blake was a little busy... haha. I was thankful to be at the game but I am also thankful for Husband in general this week. More thankful than I am for going to the game with him, I appreciate the little things he does. For example, the other night, I was in the kitchen cooking dinner and listening to music when he got home from work. Before saying anything, he walked up to me and grabbed me and started slow-dancing. I love when he is sweet and shows me how much he appreciates me. Lucky me :)
So I got some new specs this week. Here's a pic of them. It has been a couple years since I got new glasses and I was ready for a change. I wear them most of the time I work so I get a lot of use out of them. I'm glad I have good insurance that allows me to pick out something practical and stylish. And, I'm glad I got a new prescription so my eyes can get a bit of a rest! Whatd'ya think??
I am so thankful for breakfast for dinner. Last night, I just did not feel like cooking dinner so instead, I made pancakes! These are pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes (my favorite as you know already) with added vanilla protein powder to bulk them up a bit. They were super filling and delicious. We topped them with French vanilla whipped cream and it felt like we were having dessert. Husband really appreciated the change as well :) Plus, we had a cold front come through last night and I figured what better way to welcome the fall weather than with fall flavors??
And, finally, I am so excited about our oranges! We have a mandarin orange tree (and a grapefruit tree and a lemon tree) in our back yard and I always get so anxious when the fall rolls around because I know our oranges will be ripe soon. Yesterday was the first day I could go out and pick some off the tree. Most aren't ready yet but I did get a handful of fragrant, sweet deliciousness! These oranges will make an entire room smell like Christmas when you peel them. I think that's part of the experience I love so much!
Loving and learning a little more each day.
