I am pretty darn thankful for all of you guys! No matter how many times I fall off the blogger wagon, you guys always leave me the loveliest comments and are still so sweet and still come to my blog. I sure do appreciate all of you! I figured a good way to get back into the swing of things is with a Grateful Friday because things have been crazy over at chez Petersen as of late.
- Firstly I'm grateful for all the positive affirmations. I'm a self-diagnosed seasonal depressive, I seriously become worthless as the weather changes from season to season and it's all I can do to get out of bed. I know, I hear you, "But Kim, Fall's your favorite." It is, it's true, but still, every time the season's change I get really mopey and unproductive. I've been making it a point to practice positive meditation and affirmations in the mornings while getting ready and this has helped. I'll talk more about that in another blog post.
- Date night. The hubs and I went to see Blink-182. I know, I'm totally showing my age, but I seriously get flashbacks of high school and driving around for hours listening to my Blink tape. Yes, tape. Do you guys even know what cassettes are? Anyhoo, I'm way too old to waste gas driving around aimlessly these days but I still love throwing on some Blink and giving my house a good clean out. It was so much fun and it was nice to spend some time with my bae.
- The weekend! We made an executive decision not to open the coffee shops at all on Sundays this year and I don't feel a bit bad about that because I actually get a weekend. I mean, it's technically a day but when you haven't had a day off in ages and then you get one day it's like a whole weekend. I don't actually do anything productive but I give zero cares because curling up in bed with a book sounds like the perfect Sunday to me so I'm really grateful to have that day!
Let me know what you guys have been up to this week and what's making you feel particularly grateful. Again, you guys are quite literally the best people ever. XO
