thankful thursday {link up}

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

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Progress.  Ever since finding out about sweet baby girl, we have been steadily pushing through the paperwork.  In the past two weeks, we have completed our I-600, paid the I-600 application fee, finalized our home study documents, completed our agency registration documents, knocked out a few dossier checklist items, and heck... we even notarized some forms at a housewarming party we went to last weekend.  We are pushing through.  It definitely helps when you have an adorable picture to look at for motivation:)

 2) Tomato plants.  We finally got our tomatoes planted in the beds this past weekend!!!  Tomatoes are pretty much the only thing that I care much about in regards to all this gardening business.  I love tomatoes and you just can't beat homegrown.  Apparently the chickens like tomatoes too... well, at least tomato leaves anyways.  It didn't take long before we had to put netting up.  Either way... I'm pumped about eating some tomato sandwiches soon!!!

3) Pretty commute views.  Aka... sit-on-the-bridge-in-traffic-for-forty-minutes-view.  Don't worry, I was perfectly safe while taking this picture... I think my car might have even been in park at this point (yep, it was that bad).  I rarely get stuck in traffic on my drive to-and-from the office, but if I do... it's usually on the bridge... which I'm okay with.  Bumper-to-bumper traffic isn't nearly as bad with the Ohio River and the Louisville skyline to keep you occupied, so for that, I am grateful.

By the time your sweet baby girl gets here you will have eggs and tomatoes coming out of your ears. Just in time to feed your little bit larger family! Glad you can be happy about being stuck in traffic...I can see why when you have a view like that! Can't wait until we can come see you!
