30 Days of Thanks {Catch Up}

I told you I would royally screw this up.

Haha... so here's a recap of what I have already posted...

Day 1: I am thankful for my strength. I have learned over the last few months that my family readily relies on my assertiveness and strength of mind. I am also the voice of reason to my loved ones.
Day 2: I am thankful for fried egg sandwiches. My mom makes a mean egg sandy. After a cup of coffee a fried egg sandy starts my day!
Day 3: I am thankful for my dad. He has taught me so much about life. He helps guide me through new experiences so I don't make the same mistakes he has made. The passed few months he has been fighting cancer and I continue to thank God for everyday he is with us!

(and right now he is sitting in his recliner, taking a nap, and snorrrrrring away! Lol!) 

  Day 4: Today I am thankful for my mom. She is very intelligent, loving, and always worried about me... like a normal ma! She has been taking amazing care of my dad... feeding tubs, dressing changes, IV bags... all of which are things a nurse would usually take care of. She took the initiative and learned how to do everything so my dad could be comfortable at home. Thanks mom! Love you!
Day 5: I am thankful for Tyson and all of the great adventures he takes me on. He loves to show me new things and places.
Day 6: I am thankful for Jim, and all the great things he does for Tyson and I. Not just anybody will invite someone to Miami and Key West to spend 10 days on a yacht and powerboating in the ocean. We work very hard to make sure the speed boats are ready when Jim is ready but in return he is very grateful and the most humble man I know.
Now it's time to catch up on the last two weeks I missed.
Day 7: I am thankful for my girlfriends! The lovely ladies that I went to high school with, college with, and the ladies I have met after. I love that I can say-
"We've been friends for 15 years!"

Day 8: I am thankful for Bonzai. He's my little bundle of joy! Love my lil' boy!

Day 9: I am thankful for my health. I am so blessed to have a strong body that has yet to fail me.
Day 10: I am thankful for my faith. The good Lord does some amazing things and I trust him with my life!
Day 11: I am thankful to have a lovely home to live in. Keeps me warm and dry and safe!
Day 12: I am thankful for the difficult people in my life. They have shown me exactly who I don't want to be.

and on a lighter note
Day 13: I am thankful for cheap champagne. Nothin' quite like a tasty mimosa!
Day 14: I am thankful for Uggs. They allow me to be so freaking comfortable and yet "fashionable" all at the same time. Uggs... you are a lifesaver.
  Day 15: I'm thankful for washers and dryers. I freaking love doing laundry.
(no that's not my washer/dryer... I wish!)
Day 16: I am thankful for boats. I love boats.
 Day 17: I am thankful for hair dye. Without it I would have mousey brown hair and that just doesn't look good on me.
Day 18: I am thankful for LOL CATS.
Day 19: I am thankful for Target. Target is my zen... I go in there, wander around aimlessly, find cool stuff, and two and a half hours later I go home and look at it all.
Day 20: I am thankful for Pinterest. What would we do without Pinterest? We wouldn't find hilarious things to do to our children/nephews to embarass them when they become adults.

Day 21: I am thankful for chips and salsa. Preferably extremely-hot-light-my-mouth-on-fire salsa.
(oh and tequila... tequila is pretty good, too.)

Day 22: I am thankful for my iPhone camera. How else could I capture moments like this?
(sweet duds, dude)
and this

So what are you thankful for? You can find my link-up here. Have a great holiday!
Happy Thanksgiving!
