Thankfull Thursday

Know what's so crafty, clever, cool and consistent?? Alliterations! Love them! That's why I heart THANKFULL THURSDAYS!! Especially after I was so neg yesterday...not that I had a bad day, just that I wasn't being positive. Problems are so hard! Sorry, DTD girl, love you! Anyways, Thankfull Thurs...

tOdAy I aM xTrA gReAtfUl fOr...


1. sparkly vampires who want to kill the people they love!!!! Way romantic! 36 MORE HOURS!! BAAAAAA!
2. fake sugar. Totally delicious and totally trimming! SPLENDA FOR PRESIDENT!!
3. being the Mia Maid advisor!! It's SO fun to make value-color-coordinated crafts, SO neat to exchange hair ideas w/ them, SO fun to watch them heart me and my example. Anyone who knows me knows that I love all my young womens! Speaking of which, so greatful for...
4. my OWN advisors, who taught me the old tuck and pin by example, AND who taught me my role in the plan in rilly effective but darling ways such as that year we had a Cinderella ball instead of spidery/sweaty girls camp!! Primping is the BEST!
5. Internet! I don't get how the Superhighway works but I am sooo thankful it does bc speeding along it is the best!
6. JJWT! Love his muscles, tan, truck, fohawk and future job. Smoooooooch!!
7. Songs about being preggo! My whole pregnancy, it's been so fun to sing along with that song, "My bump, my bump, my lovely baby bump!" and finally feel like someone GETS IT, you know?
8. non-fat dairy. Fat-free/sugar free ice cream is my fave desert EVER. Can't believe I use to have to eat regular kind...ew.

How about YOU? What are YOU thankfull for?

HAHAHA I just spit Diet Coke.

I am so thankful for being able to swim in my own pool out back. Not only can we use the water for our food storage water when the famine comes but it also means we don't have to go to a public pool and experiance "the CRYPTO" this summer. What a blessing personal pools are...spending all the money on it was totally worth it. I know we will get our money back out of it when others come to pay to bath in it when water is scarce.

Why is there a floating baby otter with a number beneath it on the side of your blog? I never knew i was thankful for spinning baby otters, but now I know I am.

Andrew said...

MMMMMmmmMMMmM! Fat-free/sugar-free ice cream is my favrite too! Its fat free and sugar free, so its better for you than things that do have fat and sugar. Like fruit.

LOVE IT!

And one other thing, I know you had great young womens advisors, who taught by example and all, but don't follow all their examples. Remember Karen, the Mia Maids advisor who totally got a boob job and then had an affair with a younger, totally hotter guy? Affairs aren't cool, even if the guy is totally hotter than your chubby 40-something hubby.

Love yA!

I'm thankful for the piles and piles of money my hubby and I have, just laying around.

But don't worry, we make sure to do good works with it and give it away to charity and poor people, aka, non-Mormons (sad), and then take pictures of us and post them on our blog so everyone can see how amazing and giving we are.

I love thankful Thurs. so I can be thankful for you TAMN

Amy said...

I am so thankful that my husband was born into the "Lucky Sperm Club" so that we didnt have to buy our own house, boat, atv's, cars, or vacations. They are all paid for by my wonderful mommy and daddy -in law.

Julie said...

I'm totes thankful for our opportunity to go to medical school. I mean, I know it's so hard and everything, but we're so thankful that we are going through this trial in the beginning of our marriage so that the rest will be even better! I'm going to be SOOO happy when we get our degree! M.D. all the way!!

Adam and Kristina said...

TAMN, I also wanted to note how impressed I am with your spelling skills. Who needs to know how to spell words like "thankful" and "really", when you can spell "alliteration."

Heather said...

I'm so thankful for sarcasm and irony. It really gets me through the day! How ironic that that wasn't sarcastic! :)

Heather said...

Did I just say "that that"?

cheri said...

Ooh, that ice cream is my favorite 'desert' too! Well, and Utah.

I never knew that song was "My bump," I always thought it was something else. Weird. Love you!

Kerry said...

Splenda would be SUCH a good president!!

Lindsay said...

Pretty soon you will be able to sing "I'm a supermodel and mommmy. See mommy?" with your bff Nelly Furtado!

alyssa said...

I am SUPER THANKFUL for BLOGGY FRIENDS who make me feel like I have REAL FRIENDS! Not that I don't have real friends, but I can't talk to them all day 'cuz they don't all have IPHONES like me. But I chat with BLOGGY sisters ALL DAY LONG!!

And I'm WAY grateful for the CAPS LOCK KEY!! Holding down the shift key is a lotta work for my pinky. It's not as strong as my left ring finger, ya know, 'cuz it doesn't have 2 carats to lift all day. But I still HEART my PINKY!!

rabidrunner said...

I'm thankful for acronyms. They have the potential to turn even the boringest of days into, like, a total mystery!

Brittany said...

Oh wow, I fill like it's Fast & Testimonty Meeting!

I am GRATEFUL for Daybreak!!!! (When are JJWT's parents going to build you a house there??)

Cuz there, you get your own temple (I heard no Non-Daybreakers will be able to use it) AND you get to live the Simple Life (which makes you feel down-to-earth), but for WAY more money!

Best of both worlds!

Rebecca said...

I love alliteration too, totally.

Turbo said...

..for the moisture

*MARY* said...

I'm thankful for this day, I'm thankful for this church and I know this church is true. I know President Monson is a true prophet. I love my mom and dad and I know they are my true parents. I'm thankful for my blessing. Amen.

Renee said...

I am thankful for Fat Fridays, when I can let my hair down (ewww... not literally) and cheat a little with some Cold Stone on one of mine and my hubby's many many many DNs (Date Nights).

I'm also thankful that I can get away with a Fat Friday once a week, when there are so many other women in my ward who just can't, even though they think they can. Poor things.

Lobbie said...

I am grateful that I was born hot. That's totally a gift of the spirit we both share in common GF!! And it's soooooo good to know that it means we were SO rightus in the PRE-MO! My super-hot hubby must have been like soooooo righteous, and I'm soooooooo grateful that he was like totally like a son of MosIah in the Pre-mo to make him so hot now! We're tooootally gonna have like stripping warriors for kids!

Amma said...

I am thankful for U! As a granny blog lurker, U make me smile each and every single day and I so seriously look forward to checking in on you every day. (I've tried some of your alternate spelling, but it's hard to teach an old dawg new tricks!)

Charly said...

So, my Mia Maid advisors left me in the dark: what exactly do you mean by "tuck and pin"?

Token Asian Friend said...

I'm thankful for collagen, Botox, chemical peels, and other natural and organic cosmetic treatments that allow us to have beauty and youth without having to go under the knife.

Annie said...

I am grateful for bacon. The only thing that tastes better than chocolate is bacon.

sarah said...

Ok.. this is for you Charly, since nobody has enlightened you yet.. the old tuck and pin.. its when women tuck up their garments and pin them in place so that they will go with their latest, totally, awesome, chic outfit. Not only is it horriflying true- i can 20 people on the spot that i know of, that do this, but it is a great great example for our kids, specily our daughters, and all the young women of the church!! 2 for 1! Its like fat free ice cream and DK! you get the "i feel like i ate something" feeling, without all the guily of like a calorie. for many, many examples hit up a saratoga springs ward.. their are like hmmmm 20 examples a week. you'll totally see what i mean!! But its like way way worth it, because the outfit cost them like 4 hundred bones.. or i mean, their precious hubby 400 bones. the women dont work their!! gasp, how dare you even think such a thing. work?? i dont think so. there much to busy like TAMN getting their over fertile flowerbed cleaned out of any left over birth control, from the last and first 3 months of their marriage so that there stallion of a hubby's super duper righteous seed can be planted. its all just to much is it not?? cant you just feel the glow? my bosom is 4 definitly sure like BURNING! BFFs!!!!!

I'm also thankful for the intranets, it TOTALLY goes WAY fast on my macbook air.

I'm also greatful that UVSC is now the UVU!!!1!1

The one semester in (I'm majoring in Creative Writing!) I took back a few years ago when I just moved here from Alpine/Highland/Sandy/South Jordan/Salt Lake/Lindon/American Fark is TOTALLY LIGIT!

I'm still saving to go back one day - i've been working at Nordstrom in the University Mall making 8 dollars an hour and I live at Branbury where my sugar mama BYU Molly girlfriend makes me mac and cheese every night. She wants me to go back to school. I"M SOOU GREATFULL for her.

And I'm done.

Have you ever heard the song "Having My Baby" by Paul Anka? Best preggo song ever. It cracks me and my husband up every time we hear it.

Totally heart the word like! Like, it's soooo cool!

Danceattak said...

I am so thankful to know that evolution isn't true so I can not waste my time trying to learn it! I already know and when the rest of everyone figures it out I can say "um yeah, I already knew that!"

I'm also grateful I learned what Sick means because when people say Sick I finally realized they mean cool, not gross! Sick Tight!

Clint & Elle Stallings said...
