thankful thursday {link up}

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

This Thursday I am thankful for...
1) Day out with my man.  I had a meeting in Cincinnati, OH on Tuesday and Lance was able to ride with me and spend the afternoon with me there.  We hit up the Newport Aquarium and had sushi for lunch... and I even was able to grab some Chipotle to bring back for dinner:)  It was really nice to get out of Louisville for the day and enjoy some quality time together.  So thankful for my husband.

2) Sticker-infested snail mail.  I always know exactly who my sticker-covered snail mail is from... she doesn't even need to put her name in the return address.  I smile the moment I see the stickers and think of this dear friend.  We now have several miles between us, but nothing a few stickers (and postage) can't fix;)  Miss you Lauren!!

3) Painting with the girls.  Last night I went to a "Spirits & Bodega" painting class with some girlfriends of mine.  It's similar to a Sips 'n' Strokes type of class... basically, you bring your own wine and paint a canvas with the help of an instructor.  I've done several of these back in Atlanta, but this is the first one I've tried in the Louisville area... it was a blast!  Just what I needed.

Sounds like a great week! We went to the aquarium last Friday to see Might Mike. I think my husband liked him more than the kids...

Stickers on mail -- definitely better than what usually comes in my mailbox!

Happy Thankful Thursday!

Yay for mini trips out of town. I'm in desperate need of one myself! Believe it or not (I live in Kentucky) I've never been to the Newport Aquarium!

I keep meaning to try one of those painting places, but I haven't gotten to one yet. Looks like a blast!

What a great letter to get in the mail, I absolutely love this!! I used to do this to my grandfather all the time - and he lives somewhere where the mailman still walks up to your house and he (the mailman) used to comment on the letters. So much fun.
