  1. Chocolate milk... It does a body good. Actually, I think chocolate milk does a body good way more than regular milk... cuz it has all the goodness of milk, but it has a delicious and satisfying flavor too!
  2. 4 Day work weeks.... because it feels like it should still be Thursday, but instead, I have a weekend before my eyes!
  3. 3 pay days in one month!
  4. Student Loan Checks.... putting savings back into savings! Love it!
  5. Jeff getting the checks to me a DAY EARLY instead of way late. Very grateful for that! Makes my life so much easier on a busy pay day Friday!

  1. Scrapblog! Yes, it's my number one i am grateful for today because i am in love with it! It's a cool FREE tool that helps you make super cute scrapbooky type stuff for your blog like your heading and such.... Love, love, love it! (you can doubleclick on the pic above and see it more clearly....)
  2. Chocolate chip chocolate cookies. They are very very yummy! LOVE THEM! Crave them... delicious! :)
  3. Brains and my brother Dallin. Cuz he has brains that are amazing! He's graduating from high school today.... Salem Hills High School that is... the first graduating class ever! And he's so smart! I actually come from a really smart family, of which I am very grateful because I, too, have a great brain!
  4. Eternal Marriage! Pretty sure watching Jon and Kate Plus 8 has been.... weird. They have a lot of crap going on with their marriage right now and whether Jon cheated on Kate or not and if they're getting a divorce, blah blah blah. I have a wonderful husband and we have a wonderful eternal marriage! for which i am very grateful!
  5. Kleenex tissues. Because my allergies have now kicked up for the summer and I seem to be blowing my nose a LOT.

May 26, 2009

  1. 3 Day Weekends. Because even though it didn't go as I had hoped or planned, I still had absolutely NO WORK for one whole day. That never happens!
  2. Calista Mae Fisher. Because she is my best girl friend and she went shopping with me both Saturday and Monday to find a dress for Kendra's wedding. And she's just so cute and happy and basically the best ever!
  3. TJ Max. Because after shopping all over BOTH malls in Utah County, Target, even Walmart, THEY were the ones to have a purple dress that was decently cute, fit me, and not over $50.
  4. A-1 Steak Sauce. Because it made my burger amazing on Memorial Day. Yeah, it's that important.
  5. In Laws. Because they invited me to breakfast while my husband was out fishing... which he really wanted to do, so I let him, of course, cuz I'm a good wife... so it was really nice to be invited out to breakfast and hang with the Creer girls. :)
  6. *BONUS* (cuz it was a long weekend, i can do one more....) Macaroni Grill. Because they have this amazing Chef's Trio deal where you get salad, entree, and dessert for $11.99. And it's super delicious! Yeah, I'm grateful for that!

  1. My twin, Nathan Harmon Jack. Though you're not supposed to pick favorite siblings, how can you not pick your twin as your favorite? We were born EXACTLY 16 months apart. My due date was January 12th 1986, born 11 days late on the 23rd. His due date was May 12th 1987, born 11 days late on the 23rd. Tomorrow is his 22nd birthday! He has always been such an amazing example to me of love, faith, diligence, and hard work. I am so grateful to have a twin as amazing as my brother!
  2. My husband, Dustin Michael Creer. Man, he is so sweet to me! And really, sometimes I'm the biggest jerk ever. I never thought I'd be a nagging wife, but I am. I try hard not to, but I still am! He never complains about my nagging, he is just so sweet and just works harder to be a good husband! One time he even asked for a chore chart so he could know what to clean. Is that amazing, or what?! Yep, I love him! And am grateful for him!
  3. So You Think You Can Dance. Yep, I'm a dork. But I LOVE this show and it makes me so happy watching amazing dancers! I am excited for this new season! It should be a good one!
  4. My friend Janna. Cuz not only did she check out the blog, but she commented AND became a follower! Now that is a good friend! Love you Janna!
  5. FREE BBQS!!! Happy Memorial Day weekend! Let's face it, no one wants to be here at work today... but there are some things that make it good. Like, that Jeff got me the checks signed early this morning... and the cafeteria for our work across the street is having a FREE BBQ! Happy day!

May 21 2009

  1. My parents! Today is their 28th Anniversary! My parents have taught me well, are so loving and just amazing! I am truly grateful for their love and influence in my life!
  2. Employment! I'm so grateful that I have a job! Well, okay, i have TWO jobs and i suppose i'm grateful for both of them. It ensures that we have our bills paid and food on the table, which is really nice. We even have the luxury of occasionally splurging and buying things like, i dunno, say, a CRUISE.
  3. My piano students. Okay, so really, they are the ONLY reason why i have two jobs. I would quit teaching otherwise cuz I'm certainly not doing it for the pay! They are so cute and they love me... even on the days where class is rough because they haven't been practicing or whatever. Seeing them improve really makes my day and keeps me teaching
  4. AC... Even if the neighbor's AC is FREAKING OUT in the middle of the night, causing us to wake up at 2:30 AM because it is RIGHT OUTSIDE our bedroom window and so loud! But this is a THANKFUL journal, so really, I AM thankful for Air Conditioning! It makes a Utah summer bearable!
  5. STObucks. If you don't work for StoresOnline, than you probably don't know what STObucks are.... basically it's like Monopoly money but then you get to trade it in for real prizes... like giftcards, shirts, and even a Wii if you have enough! Well, my awesome boss gave us all a small chunk of STObucks and then i also got $5 in STObucks from our controller because I am A) amazing at my job and B) I found where we had overpaid $3700.90 at a particular venue and we just got a refund check! This was from an event that was back in SEPTEMBER and no one caught it until i came along! so yeah, I'm awesome :) And I'm grateful for that too!

Attitude of Gratitude

So.... This I guess is my "Thankful Journal" because lately, i've needed to be a lot more grateful in my life! My goal is to write at least 5 things i'm grateful for EVERY DAY. (excluding weekends cuz i don't have the internet at home). Sometimes it might have explanations, sometimes it might just be a list... who knows. We'll see how it goes!
