Thankful Thursday ~ 8/2/18

This week I'm thankful for:
~I really needed to laugh on Saturday!  I wasn't feeling very well and rested most of the day.  In the evening the hubby and I watched "I Feel Pretty".  I had seen the previews a few days before and it looked cute so we grabbed it from the Redbox.  It was hilarious!  (Caution:  it is rated PG-13)

 ~Laken is so excited!  The High School Cheerleaders are having a Cheer Clinic in a few weeks at her new school.  They will be learning cheers and be able to purchase spirit items.  She's supposed to wear a spirit T-shirt so we borrowed one from my cousin who went to that school and got her a big, blue hair bow.  I love that she is excited to be cheering and attending a new school :)

~Monday I had quite the fright!  Laken was at the pediatrician for vaccines and a checkup.  Right after receiving her shots, she passed out!  I pride myself on being cool in emergencies but I confess:  I freaked out a bit!  She came right around.  Apparently she has her daddy's aversion to needles!  I'm thankful she is OK :)

~I organized my bookshelves!  Other book lovers will know how much fun it is to not only read books, but to organize them as well.  This time I organized them by genre and then author.  And it looks so much nicer.  I had gotten in the habit of just piling things on the shelves.  It was in desperate need of a straightening!

~Kaylee got her physical for her Driver's Permit yesterday!  One step closer to my baby being "on the road".  Now she needs to get her eye exam on the 11th and then schedule her Driver's Permit Test.  I don't know if I'm ready for this!  I am thankful that she is healthy and on the way to becoming a responsible adult :)

What are you thankful for today?


  1. I so need to organize my book shelves too!!!!
    Passed out? Oh man... tell the nurses about that in the future so they can have the smelling salt ready :)
    Question - where did you get the name Laken from? Reminds me of the soap I used to watch as a teen, Santa Barbara - I always loved that name on there

    1. My husband's father's name was Kenneth so we searched for a feminine form of Ken that wasn't overly popular. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting!

  2. Thanks for joining in! I get great satisfaction from organising books too :-) So glad your daughter is excited about her new school. Hope your daughter gets the green light to drive...

  3. I love to work in my book shelves! Love your post! Enjoy your afternoon. Hugs!

  4. I just organized my bookshelves in June when I went through everything to find donations for the library's used book sale. It always feels so good when that is done...if only it stayed that way. LOL Good luck to both of your to a new school and one to get a driver's license.

  5. I could Stan to organize our books and our DVD’s both. Cheerleaders and drivers. So much fun in your home. Have fun!

  6. We just did the vaccines too, but no passing out. Thank goodness! Good luck with having a new driver in the house. Always scary at first, but you get used to it. Thanks for linking up today.
