I’m so thankful for the music that Prince made. I was speechless when I saw that Prince had passed away. Being born in the early 80’s it seems like there has always been music by Prince in my life. Plus, I can’t tell you how many times I watched Purple Rain as a kid on Saturdays. It seems like it was always on our local Fox station on the weekends so I would always watch it when it was on.
I’m thankful that I had the opportunity to see Prince in concert in 2004. My husband and I drove from Little Rock to Memphis for the Musicology Tour that was held at the Pyramid. That was the best concert I’ve ever been to in my life. To me, Prince was the greatest entertainer ever.
I’m thankful that my kids like me playing Mario with them even though I’m not a good player. I mostly just stay in a bubble (it’s a cool feature that they have on the newer Mario games for bad players like me). My four-year-old is better than I am 🙂
I’m thankful for $1 sewing patterns. Joann had a sale on patterns and I bought some vintage dress patterns from the 1950’s for my daughter and me.
I’m thankful for cheap flowers. We planted some flowers that were 10 for $10 at Kroger in some planters on our front porch.
I’m thankful that my kids and I had a great time planting our flowers on Earth Day.
I’m thankful that I took time to lay on a blanket outside with my kiddos looking up at the sky and saying what the clouds looked like to us. I need to take more time to do this with my kids it was a lot of fun.
I’m thankful for Mo Williams books. We read a new Elephant and Piggie book last night that had us all laughing.
I’m thankful that my kids get to discover new things that bring them joy.
I’m thankful that my son is interested in finding good deals. For the past few months every Sunday he is excited about looking at the ads. He looks to see what items are on sale that we usually buy. Then he will look for coupons for those items too 🙂 He especially loves finding Dawn on sale for 88¢ or 99¢ . Then using a coupon to purchase it because he can get it for less than a dollar. My child is so sweet that he spends his allowance that he earns by folding laundry to buy me dishing washing liquid.
I’m thankful that my four-year-old is becoming a good little reader. I have slowly been teaching her how to read. We have been working on short A words since this fall using the Hooked on Phonics and she is doing awesome reading short stories with short A words. I’m really proud of her.
I’m thankful that my husband and I were invited to attend the 2016 Curbside Couture fashion show at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock on Sunday. I’ll write a post about it next week but it was an incredible show and we had a great time.
Waiting for the Curbside Couture fashion show to begin. The fashion show features designs by local students (3rd grade through 12th) who have taken recyclables and crafted them into designer wear? #clintoncenter #curbsidecouture #littlerock #green #recycle #curbsideatclinton #fashion
