TGIF - Gratitude

I just found out that Jen from Just Jennifer had some pretty amazing news today. And is celebrating her good news by spreading a little gratitude.

Its a nice change from complaining and whining that seems to be going around here, Mostly just by me.

So here are a few things I am grateful for

  • My husband - Not only does he go to work and make 98% of the income, he come home and helps out with Jakah because I am exhausted. And for the past 3 months while I work tax season, he has been doing it alone and making dinner. He rocks.

  • Being able to stay home - While I miss having adult conversations and feeling like I am contributing financially or being productive, I am thankful I get to stay home with my kids while they are little. Its only for a few years and then they will be off and in school. 

  • Being pregnant - As much as I hate it, and am happy to be almost done, I do realize there are some people who can't  have children at all. And would give anything to be pregnant. I am very fortunate I can. 

  •  Budgeting - As much as I want a smartphone or an iPad (or anything else awesome!), I am grateful that we are on a budget. We have a lot in savings, put money into retirement, have fun spending money, can pay our bills and have virtually no debt (except our  mortgage). Not many people can say that at the age of 30
Of course these are just a few things I am grateful for this week. 

What are you grateful for?!
