40:40 -- Gratitude

In honor of Easter Sunday and the completion of my 40 Posts goal, here are things for which I am extremely grateful:

How many dogs would put up with this?

  • My dog who will let L.E. crawl all over him without a sideways glance
  • Baby giggles
  • An amazing husband who will let me finish Easter dinner while he stops midway through his to put our sweet L.E. to bed, as she has passed out in her highchair
  • Friends who are understanding when we are either late to an Easter egg hunt or miss one altogether because Miss Hates-to-Nap suddenly takes 3 hour naps in the morning
  • My friend's little guy coming home after being in the hospital for the last few days. I'm glad he's OK but I know it must have been Hell for her. I don't pray a whole lot but I definitely prayed for his speedy recovery
  • L.E.'s godparents who I think of every day and can't wait to see again
  • My BFF coming home from vacation because I missed her
  • The Trailblazers amazing comeback victory yesterday
  • My fat rolls because they give L.E. something to grab onto when she uses me as a climbing wall
  • The Stonehenge scene in "This Is Spinal Tap" because it was on today and it makes me laugh uncontrollably
  • Silver Peak's nachos
  • Tina Fey's book
  • Plum Organics Super Puffs because they are like crack for babies
  • Ryan's quote on "The Office" the other night about being annoyed when people who have never tried crack say something is like crack
  • My homemade cheesecake minus the burnt crust
  • NFL Network
  • Good news, even when I can't share it out of respect for others
  • My family, who I miss like crazy especially on holidays
  • You, for reading this blog and telling your friends about it
And, as promised...Easter ham!

  1. I totally thought of the Ryan comment as I read the Super Puffs line! And then I LOVED that you had that next! ;)
    Happy Easter! And Congratulations! And please do keep writing - your loyal fans need you!
    P.S. There will be other egg hunts. xo ;)
