Tuesday Top 10

It's week two of the resumed Tuesday Top 10, so here are the things I'm thankful for this week....

  1. A wonderful wedding celebration for my friends Kelly and Brian. Everything was perfect, and everyone is so happy that they are starting their life together!
  2. Spending lots of time with my parents and having dinner with my grandmother this weekend. Always fun to see everyone!
  3. Celebrating another birthday! It's much better than the alternative. :) I believe that 33 will be a good year!
  4. A short week at work... since I took off Monday, it'll make the week go even faster.
  5. Thoughtful birthday messages, cards and gifts from friends and family. It's nice to be remembered!
  6. A jillion loads of laundry, finally washed, dried, folded and put away. (Boo for the fact that the laundry basket is getting full.... again. How does that happen??)
  7. Finding a new pair of jeans that fit. I have the hardest time with this.... too long (even thought I'm tall, I have short legs); fit in the hips but gaps in the waist; etc. The same stuff every girl finds, I supposed. Banana Republic's Urban cut are my new faves.
  8. The accomplishments of not biting my nails for five weeks. It's been tough! I'm trying to stop doing it for a couple of reasons, including trying to avoid picking up any germs and getting them inadvertently in my mouth.
  9. One step closer to that dishwasher I've been wanting.... at least we've started to look in the stores. :)
  10. Trader Joe's mini gingerbread men cookies!
Hope you are having a great week!

Happy belated, dear one. And congrats on the new jeans AND on the nail biting! Awesome for you. I love finding pants that fit. It is one of those very simple pleasures in life.
