Thankfuller and Thankfuller

I KNEW I could come up with some more:

21.  I'm thankful that I grew up in a time when you could purchase penny candy. My kids never knew the joy of having a dime, a little brown paper bag, and a plethora of candy choices, each one only a penny. Get several BB Bats - they last a long time!

22. I'm ever thankful for friends who knew me when I was younger and stupider and still want to be friends with me today.

23. While I HATED it at the time, I'm thankful I had to sit at the kid table at my grandma's house. Character building.

24. I'm thankful for any chance I have to hold an itty bitty baby. 

25. Yoga pants. Who isn't thankful for yoga pants?

26. I'm thankful I don't like Twinkies, anyway. 

27. I'm even MORE thankful for Little Debbie cakes. They are totes better than Hostess cakes any day.

28. I'm thankful that gift cards were invented. How fun are they?!

29. Indoor plumbing. Enough said.

30. The world is probably thankful that about 90% of the stuff I think about stays inside my head.

I'm sure there are more. Give me some time.


  1. Oooo, penny candy! I remember visiting my grandmother and walking up to the 7-11 to buy Mary Jane's and Atomic Bombs! STILL my faves! And you know, it never occurred to me to be mad about sitting at the kid table on the holidays. Who wants to listen to grown-ups talk about world events when you can make faces at your brother or joke around with your cousins???
    Now I'm excited for Thanksgiving....

  2. My cousins put black olives on their fingers and ate them. I wasn't allowed to put them on my fingers, because I didn't like them and it would have been wasteful....
