Thankful Thursday (Except That It's Saturday)

Matt and I had a whirlwind 72 hours, thus I was not able to be thankful on Thankful Thursday (at least on paper), so I'm doing some catching up...

I'm thankful...

...that Matt and I got a mini-vacay in San Francisco, complete with trolley ride, In 'N Out Burger, clam chowder bread bowl, Ghirardelli chocolate sundae, latte in Little Italy, General Tsao's in Chinatown, nap in a park overlooking the bay, and lots of good sightseeing (all in 6 hours I might add).

...for Jordan and Stacy (they're crazy) and the cutest schnookumswookums nephews and niece - Austen, Landon, and Noelle.

...for misconnects (airlinespeak for we-get-to-get-on-the-flight-because-you-didn't-make-it).

...that the Lord absolutely blows my mind all the time. Let me just include this verse:
"Splendor and majesty are before Him, Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary."
Psalm 96:6

...for Matt and that he's so committed to our marriage all the time, and that he has the same streak of adventure in him that I do (the Lord knows I need adventure like I need toothpaste...it's not essential for life, but it's still pretty much essential).

...for our vacuum that has firmly established its role as antkiller and a husband who bravely operates it (the Lord knows I can't do it).

That'll do it, have a great Saturday.
(I'd like to add that I've spent the last hour making these pictures work, so I hope you've thoroughly enjoyed them.)


  1. Wow I can't believe all that in the less than 72 hours. That general tsao's chicken was so good I tear up just thinking of it. Surely that cook will prepare that at the Lamb's supper all things considered.

  2. It's taking everything within me not to be jealous when I see the IN/OUT Burger sign!!!! Stacy & Jordan's kids are so cute, it looks like Matt really enjoyed seeing them again. Mama

  3. Thank you so much for the pics Sara----adorable---I need to buy a ticket!
