Day 17

Slug burgers & fried pickles

Slug burgers & fried pickles

I am thankful for slug burgers & fried pickles.  If you don’t know what a slug burger is, well, you must not be from the South.  We eat these with pride.  It is so delectable & tasty we have a festival in town honoring the Slug Burger.  Read about that here.

Day 18

Sirius on my car

I am thankful for Sirius Radio on my car.  I don’t know what Miss Neenee EVER did without Radio Disney.  When my older girls ride with me, they say, “Do we have to listen to Radio Disney the whole time?”  No sweetie, we don’t, but remember sometimes you have to sacrifice to make others happy.

Day 19

Bone in pork loin

I am thankful that when I see something like this, I can get excited because I know I have someone at home that can make this goo-ood!  Thursday night grilled goes on all year round.  My sweetie is always cooking up something tasty.  Ain’t none of us lacking in the eatin’ good department.

Day 20

Tutti Fruitti crew

Tutti Fruitti crew

I am thankful for Tutti Frutti frozen yogurt.  I really think I could live off of frozen yogurt.  It becomes a major staple in my diet from time to time.  I think I will come up with a frozen yogurt diet.  I could start my morning off with coffee flavored yogurt, lunch could be tutti fruitti flavor, for supper it could be salted pretzel caramel flavor with red velvet cake flavor for dessert.  Why am I still working a desk job when I have such incredible diet ideas??  I mean the dieting/weight loss industry is a multimillion dollar thing.  Oh wait, I know.  Because they don’t need my yogurt help.  Serves me right.

Day 21

mudI am thankful for mud on this tire.  This mud is from a little ride we took on our property.  I am glad we are blessed by being landowners.  And I am glad for the mud ridin’ we get to do there!

Day 22OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am so thankful for my sweet daughters.  You cannot make me believe there are any better kids anywhere.  I just don’t know what I would do without them!

Day 23M & MAMA


I am so thankful for these two ladies.  This is day 23 of being thankful & on November 23rd, my Mama would have been 67 years old.  This is a picture of her & my Mamaw (her mama).  This is how I like to remember both of them.  My Mama passed away in 2002.  She was a wonderful mother & Christian woman.  She was loving & kind to everyone.  She taught me so much.  I miss both of them more than words can say.  I am so blessed to have had their examples in my life.



I am so thankful for my brother, of whom I affectionately refer to as Bud.  He is such a great person, handsome & charismatic.  He is a fantastic Dad & husband.  He got a lot of maternal instincts from my Mama.  He’s a good cook, will clean, & when my niece was little, he fixed her hair for school every day.  He takes care of his family & is very loyal.  He’s a good planner & organizer.  He’s sweet & considerate.  He’s the type of person you always want on your team.  He always has my back.   He is the reason Mama & Daddy had me.  They wanted another child as precious as him.  I am the reason they did not have any more kids. (True story)

Day 25OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am very thankful for this young man with my Daddy.  He is my nephew.  He is such a kind, sweet spirited boy.  He takes after my brother.  He always makes time to talk to me.  He is very athletic & handsome.  He is funny & smart, as well.  Before he left my house, the last time, he made everyone well aware that he was the tallest person at our house.  That’s ok little nephew.  You will always be a sweetie pie to me.

Day 26OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am very thankful for my sweet niece.  She is officially taller than me…. sad sigh 😦  She is beautiful, talented, funny & smart.  She always returns my texts.  She is the Snapchat queen.  She is tall like my Mama was.  She always makes me feel special.  She makes me proud to be her aunt.


Day 27OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am so thankful for Mr. Sweetie Pants’ ability to keep gum in his mouth.  He knows I keep gum in my purse.  He always tries to get as much gum out of me as he can. Here’s how the conversation went:

“Grand, I wantgum.”

“I just gave you gum.”

“Grand, I wantgumnow.”

“You still have gum in your mouth, let me see it.”

And there it was.


Day 28OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am thankful for my family.  This is my brother, his wife, & my Daddy.  I love these people to pieces.  They are worth getting up early on my day off & cooking breakfast for.


Day 29OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am thankful for this sweet family.  This is my son, daughter-in-law, & of course Mr. Sweetie pants.  They all bring lots of smiles to our lives.

Day 30OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am thankful for these two together.  I just don’t know what I would do without her or him.  She is like a little mama with him.  He is a rambunctious, precious little boy.  Together, they are a force to be reckoned with.  Love. Every. Minute. Of. It.


Whew!  Finished this 30 day challenge.  I am so blessed & thankful for the fullness of my life.  I hope you have enjoyed this little project I did.  I am glad you stopped by to visit with me.  I would love to stay longer, but I have to be going because I should be washing clothes.
