giving thanks.

It's that time of year again. Time to stuff our faces, go into turkey commas, watch football {ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!} and for some of us awaken the next day for the craziest shopping extravaganza ever! {Me included, possibly}. During all this holiday hoopla it's important to remember why we celebrate this holiday. I for one feel it's important to take a day to be eternally thankful for things in your life but I'm also a firm believer that this should be practiced everyday, and if possible, that the people and luxuries in your life, that mean the most should never be taken for granted. All that being said I thought I'd share a list of things I'm thankful for, and in return ask you to tell me what you're most thankful for this holiday and every day of your life.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all, regardless of if you celebrate this holiday, find a moment everyday to reflect on what you are most thankful for.

Seriously this could go on and on.... I have a lot to be thankful for in my life, way more than I have to be sad about and that's what makes life enjoyable and worth living.

I hope you all have a safe and loving Thanksgiving holiday! 
So tell me what are you most thankful for? How do you celebrate the holiday? And who's ready for TURKEY!?!?!?

I'm not a big fan of Thanksgiving food. How horrible is that? I do enjoy getting together with family though. I'm thankful for my family, my friends, my job, my house, my DVR, my phone, and Twitter. :)

I think you nailed it...don't know what I'd do without my family!

I second most of the items on your second "thanks" list - with the explicit and specific exclusion of skinny jeans (not a fan).

Enjoy the holiday!

I'm thankful for so many things but this year I am especially thankful for my family. We(Ryan and I) have been through so much behind the scenes this year and we could not have gotten through any of it without my family. I'm also thankful for my healthy baby girls. I can't wait to meet them. :) Two more weeks!

Happy Thanksgiving darlin'!

Both 30 Rock and Tina Fey were on that list and I couldn't love you more for it.

I'm a little late since Thanksgiving was four days ago, but I loved the list! I love when people incorporate little everyday things into their lists!
