    It is 6:30 a.m. and I am thankful for the tiny baby girl that has kept me up since 2:00 a.m. She is finally asleep on my chest. Stressful night but I try to remember to be thankful for this because some people long for this opportunity and will never have it!!!

    Two lots of awesome products! I’m thankful for the one night holiday my family and I had during the week. Watching my 2.5year old son in his Daddy’s arms while jumping over waves in the ocean truly was priceless! It’s making this weekend of 100% uni and assignments for my husband a little more bearable.

    I am so thankful my husband is off/home this weekend. Since they only come once every 5 or 6 weeks they are precious. The combination of quality time our son and I get with him is appreciated but the tasks we can complete either together or tag-teamed helps keep the lengthy to-do list at bay. Thank for the giveaway opportunity. I have purchased from both sights after you have featured them in the past. Adorable items.

    I am thankful that I have two thirds of my mid-terms corrected (I’m a teacher) and only one set of exams and a stack of papers to go. I think a large cup of coffee will solve this problem.
