Happy Birthday To ME!

27 Mar

Birthday Thankful

The last five years I’ve used this day to share “fun facts” about myself, things that people may or may not know about me. This year I’m changing it up a little by sharing 37 things I’m thankful for for my 37th birthday. In no particular order…Here we go!

  • My family, the three men I share my home with.
  • Of course my parents who taught and guided me through life and continue to do so every day.
  • My (much) older sister. I watched her very closely growing up and learned a lot from her successes AND her mistakes.
  • Cooper. He’s not just a dog, he’s my sidekick and best friend.
  • Starbucks. More than that, a Starbucks that’s less than 2 miles from my house.
  • I’m thankful I found a man who is as into gadgets as I am, thus almost always indulging my need for the latest and greatest.
  • While I’m on the subject of being thankful for my husband, I’m thankful I married a man who can cook or else we all might starve.
  • I’m thankful to be off our ACA insurance plan and on an employer provided plan. Yep, that made the top ten!
  • I’m so thankful that I got the boys into karate. It’s made a world of difference in their confidence level and given me a helping hand in making sure they don’t turn out to be assholes.
  • Getting the boys into karate was the catalyst for me to get involved too. I’m so thankful that I decided to get off my ass and out on the mat, it’s challenging, rewarding and empowering and I love it and our Legacy MA family.
  • I’ve been very fortunate to travel to some amazing places over the years. I’m so grateful for all of the places I’ve been and the things I have seen.
  • I’ve met some amazing people over the years. Some of those people I’ve met in person and some reside in my computer. I’m so thankful I’ve the chance to meet and get to know so many cool people from so many different places.
  • Sunny days.
  • Sunny days with the sunroof open and the music blasting.
  • I’m thankful I’ve been given the opportunity to wake up these past 13,505 (give or take a few for leap years) days.
  • So thankful for bedtime every night.
  • Bad days. Yes, I said BAD days. It’s the bad days that make the good ones that much sweeter.
  • Chocolate cake.
  • Even more than chocolate cake, I’m thankful for red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. So yummy!!!
  • TV that takes me out of real life and into a much more glamorous make believe.
  • Each and every time Bill comes home from a trip.
  • Each and every time I get to go with Bill on a trip.
  • Delta’s Comfort+.
  • Hair color. So thankful I’m not stuck with all this gray on my head.
  • My membership at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa. Regular massages are the way to go.
  • A part time job that’s fun and rewarding.
  • I’m thankful I’ve been able to live in the same general area for the past 29 years.
  • Having the house to myself. I can blast music or enjoy the peace and quiet, it’s up to me.
  • The DVR that lets me watch shows later.
  • Netflix which lets me watch shows I used to love.
  • My Sonos system which allows me to listen to my music throughout the house.
  • My truck. It gets me from point A to point B and it makes me look badass while doing it.
  • Texting. It makes it so much easier for me to communicate with people since I hate talking on the phone.
  • Books. I’ve never been much of a reader but over the past few months I’ve really gotten into it and I’m so thankful that there are so many great books for me to read.
  • The library. Books aren’t cheap and the library makes it easier for me to read a lot without breaking the bank.
  • Crisfiled, Maryland. It’s a little escape from the norm and I’m so glad I can go visit (almost) anytime I want to.
  • I’m thankful for another birthday that leaves me happy and healthy and I’m looking forward to many more to come.

I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know me a little better. Now it’s time for me to get back to spoiling myself rotten.

Hey! If you don’t spoil yourself, who’s going to spoil you?
