thankful thursday {link up}

{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Starbucks Caramel Apple Spice. I may have had this on my Thankful Thursday list before... but hey, there's no rule that says you can't be thankful for things more than once, right? And a host Starbucks caramel apple spice drink is totally double-thankful-worthy. I'm not a huge coffee drinker... especially at night... but a caramel apple spice is like a glorified hot apple cider... so, so good.


2) Project Life craft night. Last weekend I was invited to a friend's house to work on my Project Life album. It was so great! I love me a good ol' fashioned craft night. The goodness of this particular night was enhanced even more by the company I was with... sweedish fish candies... and girl scout cookies... Pretty spectacular evening, if you ask me.


3) Ebay. This past week Lance and I have been ebay-selling-machines... gotta make that money, man! We sold Lance's bow, one of Lance's jackets, and my guitar... all for more than we thought! We have been on a major mission to pay down debt this past year... and our recent ebay luck should hopefully help us accomplish that goal. Looking forward to paying off another credit card soon!!!


I always love reading all of the Thankful Thursday link-ups each week... and last week there were several that made me smile... but I loved reading my friend Liz's post over at The Colville Clan. I really appreciate Thankful Thursday lists that acknowledge the "little" things in life... you know, like cinnamon. I am also super jealous of Liz's "Beers & Books" club.... I mean, how genius is that? Book club... with beer. Brilliant. And a little fun fact for you... Liz and I went to elementary school together! I love that we have "reconnected" via the blogosphere.

What are you thankful for this week? Grab the Thankful Thursday button from the right sidebar and link up your own post below. Be sure to visit the other Thankful Thursday participants and share the love!!

I've never sold anything on eBay, but I have a junk room full of stuff that needs to go. I started selling some stuff on Craig's List a few months ago, but I have fizzled out on that too. Need to get restarted. Do you prefer eBay over Craig's List? Any tips???

Haven't tried that SB drink yet...sounds yummy!

Danielle said...

Ah, I wish I lived closer and could come to your Project Life parties! I still haven't touched the one I ordered last year! Yikes!

Maria H said...

Lani @ Its My Life said...

Guess I had better head over to Starbucks at lunch and give this a try:)

Liz said...

Thanks for the shout out! It is crazy to think I have known you since 3rd grade, I believe :)

Oh and is ebay a good source? My laziness usually reverts to craigslist, but back in the day I used to scour ebay daily.

This week I'm totally beyond thankful! We had a tornado hit our town this past weekend and I feel so fortunate to have our home and family. There was so much strucural devestation in our area but no deaths. Totally makes you be thankful for every single little thing in life :)

Salena said...

Congrats on selling some things! We've been doing the same thing lately. It's nice to get some debts paid off.

These are definitely worth being thankful for. I'm also thankful for Ebay. It helped me save up a ton last year! Hope you have a great weekend x
