I am little behind of my 30 days of thanks, so it's time to play catch up!
Day 4-Vacation Days from work & girlfriends
Last Friday, I was thankful for days off or vacation days from work. I feel like my life/schedule has been so crazy/busy since August,
almost too busy really. Since I only too one big vacation this year (a 7-day cruise back in June) I had a week left over that I have spread out over every other Friday since October began. These Fridays off have seriously been life-savors, especially this past Friday.
Also last Friday, I was very thankful for my girlfriends, two in particular; Marina and Katie. I got a

Us and our new Aggie friends, Rachel and Elisha at Moose
Freckles Knuckles. ;)
Saturday afternoon, after our morning at Marina's work function, we rushed back to Houston because we had a concert to get to, TAYLOR SWIFT! Marina, Heather, Ashley and I bought these tickets all the way back in February and the idea of finally getting to use them was almost too much excitement to handle! So around roles
7, 8, 8:30, after the less than stellar openers finished, the beautiful and incredibly talented Taylor Swift came on stage and performed one amazing show. I have never seen an artist thank her fans more than she did and the best part about that was you could tell she actually meant it. Her show ties with the Britney Spears/Nicki Minaj concert for favorite concert ever. Saturday, November 11th I am thankful for music; Music that can up lift us, that can grab tight of our soul and make us feel something inside, that makes us dance, or helps us through a difficult time. I am thankful that GOD has blessed the music entertainers with this gift so they may share it with the rest of the world.
Day 6-My bed & Sleep
I have always thought of myself as a person that doesn't need a ton of sleep to function. I also would like to think of myself as a morning person, but on this particular Sunday, there isn't much I wouldn't have done to stay in bed when that work alarm clock went off at 7:45 AM. Since Friday morning I had acquired about 8 hours of sleep total for the weekend (including that "extra" hour), so you can guess I was less than "energized" for work. As I struggled to maintain the "I love football!" persona that day, I realized this may be my body's way of telling me to slow the hell down. Driving home from work that day I felt the way I use to feel after back to back all-nighters in college. As soon as I walked in the door I changed clothes, crawled into bed and was asleep in a total of 5 minutes. Then and for the next 24 hours, I realized how much I really do love sleep and that my bed is the most perfect bed you could ever lay on.
Sunday, November 6th I thank the good LORD above for blessing me with a home and a bed. A wonderful bed where I can rest, sleep, dream and pray.
Stay tuned for Days 7-9.
