ABC's of Thanksgiving AND a fun giveaway!

Here are several things for which I am thankful! A-Z!

Aunthood. While that may not even be a word, I'm thankful for it!

Baby Skaggs! I can't wait for her to arrive. Hurry up, April!

Communication...calls, emails, texts...I love it all!
Diet coke (AKA my afternoon best friend).


Friends. I'll never know what I've done to deserve so many amazing BEST friends.

Grandparents. God couldn't have blessed me with anything as wonderful as the relationships I have (had) with my grandparents.

Henry. That little boy's smile can brighten my day!

Ice cream. Well...any dessert for that matter.

Job. AND it just so happens to be one I love!

Kids. My kids. All 22 of them.


Max. I know I ask this same question over and over, but seriously...What would I do without him?

No's. As a dear friend recently said to me: "Looking back at my life thus far, I'm very thankful for the no's God has given me." I couldn't agree more.

Office, Desperate Housewives, Seinfeld...just a few of my favorite shows! Thank goodness for cable TV! :)

Parents. They're the best. Period.
Quiet time.

Roadtrips! Too many of my friends live out of town, and I love visiting them.

Sisters. I think that every girl needs at least 2 sisters.

Teacher friends. How else would I manage to stay sane (well...somewhat sane!)?

University of Mississippi ...wait...let's make that MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY! Much better... :)

Vacations! I'm grateful for getting the opportunity to have WONDERFUL vacation-time (See "J").

Weekends. What would I do without them?

X-mas. OK, so I hate that abbreviation, but I was left with no choice because: a) I already used "C" and b) What else was I going to use for "X"??? Christmas really is the best time of the year!

Y. I've got nothing. While I'm thankful for so much, I can think of nothing that starts with "y"!

Zzzzzzz's...I HAVE to have my sleep!

NOW....In honor of my 3rd "blogoversary" which is in a few weeks, I'm having a giveaway! What am I giving away? I guess you'll just have to wait and see! :) Here's how to enter: Simply leave a comment on this post. Also, if you give me a shoutout on YOUR blog, let me know in your comment and your name will be entered twice. BUT WAIT! That's not all! If you sign the guestbook at the top of my blog, your name will be added AGAIN!

So..there's actually a way to get your name in the drawing 3 times!

Got it?

On the day of my blogoversary (see sidebar), I'll announce the winner AND tell you what you've won!

Have fun! :)
