With Thanksgiving around the corner I wanted to take a minute to think about
what I am thankful for (here it goes):
* The INTERNET...LoVe It! Who doesn't.....thank yoooooooooooooooouuuuuuuuu
* Microwavable else am I suppose to make pancakes at 6:30 a.m. while dressing myself, doing every one's hair, making lunches and getting to school on time.
*thank you pony tail holders, baseball caps and big sunglasses...the standard Mom uniform for morning drop off.  I can't look fabulous for a.m. drop off...remember I've been microwaving pancakes and doing every one's hair.
* Instagram, it's fun, I love to see what everyone will share.
* Diet Coke, Oh so thankful, I drink tons and love it. My butt would BLOW UP if I was drinking regular coke.

* Spraytans because without them I would glow in the dark (I am so pale). Thank you Amanda for coming to my house once a week to make me copper tone tan.
* Mascara...I've said it once I'll say it again,I love mascara. I wouldn't care if they made it out of tar, it's awesome!!!!!!
* Incredibly thankful that I can not only walk but can wear HIGH HEELS...why wouldn't any woman want to heels, your legs look better and you look thinner. It's a win/win!
* Thankful for friends that would slap a candy bar out of my mouth.  That's a good friend.
* Turkey....lean and yummy.
* DVR, without that little devise I would never get to see any of the shows I like.
* My Nespresso machine, doesn't matter how I get my or cold, just give it to me.
*Bleach, color and blow dryers...thank youuuuuuuuuuu Nichole you are awesome.
*Plastic surgery, I haven't had it yet but I am thankful it's available...eye lift, lipo. I say if you need it, do it...whatever the need: wrinkles, saggie boobs, suck the fat, make the stomach the size of a quarter - just do it, but find a good doctor and be thankful you can.
* super thankful for my dishwasher and washer/dryer...I could not be Amish!
* The Judge, he totally puts up with all my sarcasm and gets when I'm messing around (like with this post).
* Little Einstein, who is soooooooooooooooooooo smart he's been picked (after a scoring the BEST on a written test) to represent his school (with two other children) in this years county wide Spelling Bee.
* Even more thankful that we did not have to study one day for Little Einstein to make the Spelling Bee (he's a natural). Incredible!!!! 
* Super thankful that Pookie's new horse is still alive (lots of horse drama recently) and even more thankful that Prada (horse's name) is not trying to kick my Pookie and is a sweet filly.
* Thankful that Pookie is not afraid to get on a horse and jump, run...fall. She's fearless and I love that, I could not do what she does on a horse.
* Seriously, I am thankful for the two super gifted children I have been blessed with, my family and friends  as well as all the other incredible blessing in my life.
I'm also thankful that I do not take everything (including myself) so serious. It's not about who makes a prettier bow or wears skinny jeans better.
What is the silliest thing you are thankful for?  The silliest...please and thank you.
