Five on Friday {Thankful}

In honor of Thanksgiving next week, I thought for today's 5 on Friday, I would share 5 things I am thankful for!!

Obviously, I am most thankful for my family, friends, and health...but I feel like that goes without saying!! Of course I am so blessed to have an amazing family, all of whom are in good health, supportive friends who don't judge my craziness, and a roof over my head! 

So here are a few more things I am thankful for...

1. I am thankful Ella is a girl! 

Obviously, a healthy baby is first and foremost, and there's nothing wrong with boys (and I still wouldn't mind having one!), but the girl clothes...oh. my. goodness. And the bows!! And all the accessories! Thank you Ella, for introducing me to all of this and making my wallet empty :)

2. I am thankful I survived the half marathon last weekend and that I took this whole week off running.

{Please excuse the screen shot of this, but at least the watermarks cover up some of my post-race sweat?!}

This week of rest was just what my body needed. I just ordered a new pair of shoes, and I'll be ready to run again on Monday! 

3. I'm thankful I am able to stay home with Ella for a whole year.

....and do those weekly updates! You know you love them ;)

Not a day goes by when I don't appreciate that my job allows me to take an entire year off and they will hold my position. Also super thankful that my husband's income allows us to do this as well!

4. I'm thankful for our new washer!

Our washer officially bit the dust this past week, and we got a new one Wednesday! I just washed clothes with it yesterday and confession: I'm pretty sure I haven't been wearing clean (like, really clean) clothes in months. It's so amazing to have super clean clothes that don't have mysterious stains (from the washer) or still smell a little funky when you pull them out of the wash!! I am currently searching my house for more things to wash! 

5. I am thankful for this link-up! For real!! It's such a good way to get my random (or not so random) thoughts out, and I've met some fabulous people through it, too!! 

I could keep going...I'm also thankful for Bravo shows, pedicures, our pediatrician, my car being paid off, my mom's brownies, Amazon Prime, the fact that UNC has "pretty colors," my extra large coffee mug, all 4 of Ella's grandparents living within driving distance of us, the Cartwheel app,  library story time, my job at the Y and tutoring....but unfortunately, it's FIVE on Friday, not 1947392 on Friday.

What are you thankful for?

Have a great weekend!!! :)
