Gratitude & Thanks- Kids that Love Learning, Blogging Friends, & More

grat & thanks

I’m thankful that Spring is getting closer. Who else is ready for Spring fruits and veggies?

I’m thankful for my blogger friends visiting my new blog πŸ™‚

I’m thankful for the library having so many great children’s books. We found a lot of good books to read for our black history lessons at the library.

I’m thankful that my son loves learning. Yesterday he asked if he could do some extra science lessons from his binder after dinner. Umm…yes!!! As much as you want πŸ™‚

I’m thankful for easy chocolate recipes. I was craving cholate the other day, but I didn’t want to go to the store and buy any. Luckily, I found a really easy recipe that I was able to make with ingredients that I already had at home.

My chocolates ??? They turned out pretty good! ? #afterworkoutsnack #chocolate #glutenfree #dairyfree

I’m thankful for knowing when it’s time to quit doing something that isn’t a good fit for me. I decided not to be a Beachbody Coach any longer. I love the workout programs, but I’m not a big fan of Shakelogy (the protein shake with a lot of extras) due to my food sensitivities. So I didn’t want to try to sell something that I didn’t use. Plus, it required more time that I was willing to give it.

I’m thankful for having time to run on the elliptical and singing The Best of Brandy while doing so πŸ™‚

Best Of Brandy

I’m thankful that I’m almost finished going through all my clothes and discarding and organizing them using the KonMari Method. I’ve made two trips to Goodwill this week to donate unwanted clothing and a few other items too. After I finish my clothes, I’ll do my kids clothes and then on to books.

I’m thankful for FREE magazine subscriptions. I get a lot of Free magazines through Value Magazines. Currently, you can get a free subscription to Harper’s Bazaar.

What are you thankful for this week?

    Fun about the new blog! Are you set up at Bloglovin yet? Or maybe they will switch your followers from your old blog. They’re good at that!
    The chocolates look fantastic. I love Brandy!

    I’m ready for spring. I just hope spring doesn’t bring allergies for my babies. This will be our first spring here, so I have no idea what we’re in for.
    Don’t you just love it when the babies ask for my school work!! I hope our babies will always have that thirst for knowledge.
    I need to purge. I’m slowing… very slowing doing so. πŸ™‚
    I’m thankful that you linked up with me!

      My son and husband suffer from allergies πŸ™ It’s already started with my son, since we have been outside quite a bit already. I love it when they want to do extra school work. Sometimes my son even brings his workbook along in the car πŸ™‚
