SBC-Thankful Thursday

I started this blog last November, so the very first posts were all about what I am thankful for.  I look back at those posts, and I am thankful that I have come so far and learned so much!!  Today's September Blogging Challenge post is Thankful Thursday.  If you haven't heard about the September Blogging Challenge, head over to Girl Meets Life to check it out.  It's not too late to join in on some of the fun!


So what am I thankful for?  I feel like I have so many things to be thankful!  

I'm thankful for my wonderful and growing family.  
I feel so blessed to have such a great family.  We are all so close and really would do anything for each other...which is how every family should be!   I just happen to be biased with my own. :)

My brother is getting married in December and we absolutely love his fiance.  I'm so excited for their wedding!  

This year, I am getting married (in less than 6 weeks!!) to an amazing man.  He makes me so happy and I can't wait to continue our life together!!

This is one of my favorite pictures from our family vacation last year in Mexico.  It is all of the family and their soon to be spouses.

I'm thankful for my fur kid.  He's the best!  Again-I'm totally biased, but I love the giant lug!

He used to be so tiny!
I am also gaining a whole new side of the family.  They are wonderful-by the way!  I'm a very lucky girl to have amazing soon to be in-laws.  

I can't forget the rest of the family too!!  Last Thanksgiving, I convinced my family to do a 5K.  Everyone was involved.  Some of us ran, some cheered, but everyone had a good time!

I'm thankful for the positive influences in my life.
I love that I have a life grounded in faith and that my faith is supported by those around me.  


I love that I have positive communities such as Sweat Pink, Girls Gone Sporty, and Girls on the Run in my life.  They are such great organizations that promote positivity and striving to reach any goals!  I love the encouragement and inspiration that I receive on social media, at practice and just from the sports community as a whole!

I'm thankful for an amazing group of friends.
I have a fantastic group of friends.  We meet every Thursday for happy hour, we play sports together, run races together, text, email, call...just really keep in touch.  It is nice to have people in your life that you can have fun with, travel with, and count on to be up for any adventure!!

Thrift Shop Party last year...
I'm also thankful for some ridiculous things.
Slowly but surely working on the blog and improving the look, practicality, and purpose.
Trader Joe's-so many great products!!!  I love all of the staples that I buy and finding new treasures when I go.
I am thankful for wine.  I mean-you guys already knew that was coming!!!
I'm thankful for The Knot app.  I would be a mess without it and the wedding would be so disorganized!!
I'm thankful for StitchFix.  Eventually I will get some style.  I really think StitchFix will help!!

I could go on for days about things that I am thankful for.  I want to hear some of yours...What are you thankful for?

Linking up with .spoons. for some Thinking Out Loud today! :)
