Gratitude & Thanks: Parks, Free Comic Book Day, & More

I’m thankful that the park that is within walking distance from our house got new playground equipment. When we moved into our house 12 years ago there were only two swings in the park. So it’s nice that they have added playground equipment with slides, monkey bars, a balance bar, and more. My kids were really excited to play on the new equipment.


I’m thankful for FREE HBO. When we changed our internet service a few months ago it came with a FREE year of HBO. Since we have HBO I got a chance to see Beyonce’s Lemonade and I loved it. Hopefully, I’ll make it to Target today to buy the CD for Lemonade. I’m old school I want to be able to listen to it in my car when I’m driving alone. Plus, I can just add it to my phone and MP3 player from the CD 🙂

I’m thankful that Mother’s Day is coming up. I bought my mom a Kindle Fire and I can’t wait to give it to her. She has been saying she wants a tablet for a while now and since the Kindle Fire’s are so affordable now I was able to buy her one. Right now you can get the Kindle Fire for only $39.99 at Best Buy if you are looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift.

I’m thankful for my reel mower and cool Spring days. I have really been enjoying mowing the yard with my reel mower this Spring since it hasn’t been too hot yet. Plus, it’s a lot easier to mow the yard since I’m stronger from working out.

I’m thankful for gluten-free, egg-free pancakes 🙂

I’m thankful that tomorrow is FREE Comic Book Day. I’m not even a fan of comic books, but I still LOVE Free Comic Book Day. So, if you don’t have plans for tomorrow and you enjoy comic books. You can head to your local comic book shop and pick up some FREE comic books.

I’m thankful that I got a new WordPress theme for this blog. I had no idea there were so many affordable options for WordPress themes on Etsy.

What are you thankful for this week?

    Pancakes can be made any which way and it’s awesome.
    I want HBO! I asked Cassidy to expand our cable as a Mother’s Day present. I miss good channels!

      We don’t have any good channels besides HBO & OWN. We just have limited basic cable which is just PBS, ABC, NBC, CBS, and a few other channels. But we got cable after the digital conversion, because we couldn’t get PBS to show up anymore. And we really wanted our son to be able to watch Sesame Street at the time.

    The power is a good park! I wish we had one close to our house, the closest park is the kids’ school playground, which could use an update, but we still took advantage of it this weekend.
    We have a push mower too, the girls did the yard this weekend because 1) my husband’s back is out (I’m actually waiting on him at the chiropractor’s office) & 2) it was Mother’s Day weekend, so they wouldn’t let me do it.
    Those pancakes look phenomenal!
    I hope you had a great Mother’s Day!
