Thankful Thursday- May 25, 2017

  • New vacuum. Yep, it's official. I'm getting old. I'm blogging about a vacuum! We purchased the Shark Rotator Pro Complete Lift-Away. It's quite an upgrade from our old one. Not only does it look a lot better, but it also has several attachments including one specifically for pet hair! I love my Ginger Boo, but let me just say that my girl sheds like a friggin' bear. I'm ready for her now though!
  • Free finds. "One man's trash is another man's treasure", right? On the way to No. 1's basketball game this past weekend, hubby spotted a power washer with a "free" sign on one of our neighboring streets. He had been talking about purchasing one for years now, so there was absolutely no way he was going to just pass it by. The previous owners had even attached the manual to it! I'll admit that I was quite skeptical that it would even work...I mean, who throws out a functioning power washer? They aren't cheap! But to my surprise, it worked like a charm. Hubby has already cleaned our patio and the siding on our house. Awesome!!
  • Veggie harvest. My little patio garden is coming right along. This week alone I've harvested broccoli AND kale (which was later enjoyed in a smoothie)! Last time I checked my tomato plant, there were at least 10 little ones growing. There is not too much better than growing and eating your very own food. Whole Foods, who??
  • Long weekend! My office is closing at 2pm tomorrow for the Memorial Day Holiday. And then I'm not back in that bad boy until Wednesday! Woot woot! Hubby and I took an extra day off. And wait for it...our boys will be in school. Ha! I'm smelling Japanese steak house in our future!
  • One. More. Month. Of. School! Can you tell I'm excited?! I'm just over it all. I'm over ironing clothes, over the mounds of paper scattered on my kitchen table, over the early morning attitudes, and of course, over packing lunches! Only 19 more school days left! Not that I'm counting or anything...

What are you thankful for today?
