Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  My day will be spent at my parents' house having a quiet, yet incredibly delicious, thanksgiving lunch.  Our family is pretty small anyway, but half of them won't be there.  Just me, my brother, my parents, both grandmothers, and my step-grandfather.  A nice, peaceful day of food, family, and football-- the three F's.  :)

Since it is Thanksgiving, here are just a few of the things I'm thankful for:

My Southwest Rapid Rewards Card-- Without this baby and the 50,000 free miles they gave me this summer, Donny and I would not have been able to see each other practically at all.  I've gotten four-- yes FOUR-- free round trip tickets between NC and TX for free.  And I still have points left.  Thank you, Southwest!

My iPhone-- Seriously, how did I live before this thing??

Pandora and Hulu-- These two websites are the only reason I'm able to maintain some sanity at work some days.  
And of course, my wonderful family, fantastic friends, and amazing boyfriend.  

I usually consider myself to be a pretty independent person, but I'm realizing more and more how much I need people.  I'm so blessed to have so many people around that love and support me.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!  


  1. Happy Thanksgiving...and Pandora helps me get through those crazy days at work too!

  2. That sounds like a great Thanksgiving! and I am so impressed with your four free flights! I think part of being independent is recognizing that we need people. Once we have people supporting us we have the confidence and support to go off and try new things!

  3. Holy cow lucky girl- how do I get me one of those reward cards, that is amazing! Hope your Thanksgiving was fantastic!
