Days 181-185...Grateful...

Well...seeing as this week was only seems fitting to just be grateful.
Thanksgiving break has been spent mostly in the car for the last few years...but I'm grateful for the people I get to see once I drive there!

I drove home on Tuesday night so I could sleep in on Wednesday (and actually not have to drive for one day).

Wednesday, my mom and I got to visit with my Aunt Kay, Papa, Granny Joy, and then two of my cousin's kids (Gabby and Drake). As always, I'm grateful to get to see them and to be at my grandparents house for the short time I was there.

Thursday, my parents and I took off for Memphis for the day. This is about the only time each year that I get to see the family on my dad's side. I love the Cole family and, although the drive is tiring, I am grateful to get to visit with them on Thanksgiving day.

Friday...we headed up to Bentonville. We got to play with Caleb (who is finally eating a little bit), cuddle with Emily, and watch the Razorbacks suffer a loss with my sister and brother-in-law. Good times...and another car ride back home. I am grateful this year that I didn't get the stomach bug like I did last year.

Saturday...I headed back down to Dallas. I went to one of my friends' houses and watched the Baylor vs. Texas Tech game. It was fun to search through Pinterest and find fun craft ideas with them. I'm grateful for fun girlfriends to watch football with and visit with.

Sunday...I love my church! And I love the friends I have made at church! After church we went to lunch...and then headed off to Michael's to try to find the items needed to make all the crafts we had seen the night before. I am grateful for a good relaxing Sunday (full of craft making!).

Can't say why...I'm grateful for today. It wasn't great but it wasn't bad either. Just a good day with no stress and an early bedtime. :)

Grateful for today.

Day 178...Grateful for Home Group Book Study...

This home group that I've joined has decided to do a book study. We, the girls that is, are going through the book Disciplines of a Godly Woman. The book is good...but the conversation today was even better. I'm super grateful for the Word that was spoken today, for the girls that I got to share time with today, and for the great godly examples that I get to do life with.

Day 177...Grateful for a fun night at Top Golf...

I'm thankful that Linda had a we could go play at Top Golf. We froze but it sure was fun! I needed that fun girl's night out.

Day 176...Grateful for a fun Arkansas Razorback weekend...

This weekend some friends of mine and I went up to northwest Arkansas for the razorback game.

We got to see my sister, brother-in-law, nephew, and niece before the game.

My parents picked up the tab on multiple things.

The beautiful Arkansas fall colors were on display for the drive up the hill.

And even in the cold wind, the hogs got a win.

Grateful for the weekend!

Day 175...Grateful for my Team Parents...

We had our end-of-season team dinner tonight.
I love mexican food...and we ate at El Norte...a Plano family owned place...and it was yummy!
I love these girls (as I've said before)!
I love that the parents were SO supportive this season.
And I love the the parents set everything up for us!
I have been so scattered with school that I don't even think I realize all that they did to keep us organized. I love it and am grateful!

Here is my A Team after they finished the season undefeated.
