Joyful, Joyful!!

I don’t know about you all, but I am not at all excited to be back at work yesterday.  Or this week, for that matter.  These next few weeks of work are going to be craaaaazy, and I am not looking forward to it.  I also feel like Dave and I are just insanely busy in general, and sometimes, to be honest, it’s annoying (and tiresome).  However, I’ve tried to keep a thankful mindset.  Yes, we’re busy.  Yes, sometimes (most of the time) I’d rather sit on my couch catching up on my DVR.  But if we didn’t have all the great people and exciting things surrounding us, our lives wouldn’t be as fulfilling and awesome as they are.  ๐Ÿ™‚  So, in the holiday spirit, I’m thankful, in no particular order, for:

Our families
Kick ass friends
A roof over our heads
Our health
The ability to live comfortably in our current environment
My Kitchen-Aid Mixer
Chipotle Burrito Bowls
Glee/Harry Potter Marathons
Married to Rock (I LOVE this show! And just found out that AJ Celi went to Hofstra! Woo!)  **UPDATE**  AJ From Married to Rock commented on my blog!  Yay!!!!!
Long, comfy sweaters
Brown riding boots
and all of you!!!

Cheesy, yes, but I do love blogging and all the people I’ve met through it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yay!!

I’m also thankful for Brand About Town and Nintendo, for sending me awesome packages like this…

What’s in the crate?

No really, what is that? Bananas?

Why would they send me bananas? Wait, what’s that other thing?

Ohhhh! Awesome!  DONKEY KONG!!!!
(And really, Nintendo has the BEST packaging!)

I can’t wait to start playing this game… once I’ve beaten the Kirby game!! (That shizz is hard, yo.)

**FTC disclosure and stuff: Brand About Town and Nintendo provided me with the super awesome game and packaging free of charge.  I was not compensated in any way, or forced to write this post.  These opinions are my own.  So there!

  5. I have to admit, that packaging is amazing!! I would've been so excited to get that game just for that reason. I'm also very thankful for Harry Potter marathons, and I'm pretty sure Family Channel has it going on this weekend.. YAY!
