A Moment for Myself

Right now, I am thankful to have a quiet moment to myself.  The less of these you get, the more you appreciate the ones you do have!


Today I am thankful for snow!  I love how bright, clean and pristine the world looks coated in fresh snow!

Good Motherly Advice

Today, I am thankful that my mom encouraged me to choose Kaylin's fall/winter wardrobe one size bigger than she was wearing in October.  If I hadn't, all of Kaylin's clothes would be snug now.  Thanks for the good advice, Ma!

Camryn's Laugh

Today, I am thankful for Camryn's laughter!  There's nothing quite as magical as a baby's laugh!  You can't help smiling and feeling happy when your baby is laughing!

Good Neighbors

Today, I am thankful to have such nice neighbors. 


Every time I change Camryn's diaper, I am thankful for all my friends and family who helped us stock up on diapers!  I am especially thankful for my friend Pamela, who really went above and beyond with the diaper roast that she threw for us!


This morning, I am thankful for my friend Jennifer!  She watched Camryn all night, so Colin & I could sleep!  I got a super ultra-fantastic nine straight hours of sleep last night!  It was so wonderful!  Thank you so much, Jennifer!

My Fellow Moms

Today, I am thankful for all my fellow moms (girlfriends, neighbors, Chesapeake Mommies, MOPS and my own mom) who have been bringing dinners to our house since the baby was born!  The food has been delicious and not having to cook has been a godsend! 

My Mom

Today, I am thankful for my mom, who took off of work to spend the day helping me with Kaylin, Camryn and my house.  She brought lunch for me and Kaylin, helped me catch up on some chores, and watched Camryn so I could get some shopping done and spend some one-on-one time with Kaylin!  Thank you, Ma!


Kaylin told me she loved me for the first time last night.  So sweet!  Then she said it again today while we were shopping at Target!  I am so thankful to have such a good-natured and loving child!


Today, I am thankful for Hershey's chocolate!  I love Hershey's Kisses and Special Dark Miniatures!  They are so delicious and just the right size . . . the perfect little pick me up!


Today, I am so thankful that Camryn slept throught the night.  Until last night, Camryn had wanted to stay up most of the night.  Then last night she surprised me by sleeping from midnight to 6:30 am! Thank you, Camryn!

Pearl Harbor Day

Today, I am thankful for all the servicemen and women who protect our country and keep us safe and free.

My Engagement Ring

Today, I am thankful to have my engagement ring back after three weeks at the jewelers being repaired.  It sparkles and shines like it is brand new!  Thank you for choosing such a gorgeous ring for me, Colin! 


I love this show and am really going to miss it!  Thank you to Tony Shalhoub and the all the writers, actors and crew for hours and hours of entertainment and for making my own idosyncrisies and OCD like tendencies seem less severe!

My Mother-In-Law

Today, I am thankful for my mother-in-law, Edrie, who is spending the whole week with us to help out with Kaylin and Camryn! Tonight, she even watched Camryn for us for a few hours so we could take Kaylin out for some much needed quality Mommy, Daddy and Kaylin time!  We had such a nice time!
