can you believe it's friday again? and what's more - can you believe next week is {american} thanksgiving?!?! that is something which only occurred to me yesterday. even though i've just begun thinking about the holidays, i'm already pretty excited. and that's not all making me happy today...

things to be grateful for this week:

* pouring through all my wedding photos for the first time - yay!
* catching up with a very dear friend on the phone
* finding two more songs to learn on the ukulele
* all the times i've laughed this week {this week was hilarious!}
* finally getting my therapist registration number {that means i'm a totally legitimate therapist now!}
* exercising regularly again {i'm back on the wagon}
* the enormous bundle of cuties dannon brought home - enormous!
* discovering new music {music is life}
* the hummingbirds who visit our window several times a day
* two {count em - 2!} date nights with the mr.
* unexpectedly finding birthday money i had forgotten about, and getting to go shopping today!!!

best. day. ever.

and because i'm so happy today, here's a little playlist for your weekend full of the songs i've been listening to this week; songs which make me say "yay!" {i'm especially addicted to the first three, sigh...}

what are you thankful for this week?


  1. I am so glad it is Friday. You sound like you have had an awesome week. Congrats on everything. Finding money, getting gifts, becoming legit, learning stuff, etc. I am grateful for many thing, too. Mainly that I took a risk this week and settled a few things. Plus, I got a super nerdy new job that I'm excited about.

  2. I'm so incredibly happy it's Friday!

    I love Date Nights! And music! :).

    Perfection :)

  3. I'm so glad you had such a fantastic week! I'm thrilled I get to see Harry Potter this morning -- with my brother too (I can't tell you what the last movie we saw together was). And I have a fun jewelry party tomorrow and a ladies' night out tonight with some girls from the philosophy department. And hopefully I'll get tons of work done too. I'm so ambitious. Hope you have a splendid weekend, my dear! We're meeting in Dec. for sure. Will email you soon.

  4. Glad you've had such a great week! Hope your weekend is even better...

    I'm grateful for all sorts of stuff. Like sleeping in a bit this morning. But now I've got to hurry up and get ready for work!

  5. I am grateful that I am not my boss right now. Because she is about to have 3 people quit on her because of her scheduling issues and I have no idea how she's going to pick up the slack. Not good.

  6. Congrats on getting your license! That's so exciting. I'm glad you've had such a nice week! Happy Friday :)

  7. I am thankful for having an awesome hubby and for the experiences in my life in general. And food. I am always thankful for food.

  8. HOORAY for friday! and i am just shocked that thanksgiving is next week! eee!

    love your thankful list. lately i am feeling thankful and less depressed than normal (HA), and that is a good thing. :)

  9. thanks for your sweet comment on my day this whole career thing will be easier, right? And congrats on everything! I am loving your play list, I have been obsessed with Noah and the Whale for a year or so :)

  10. A legit therapist, that's sweet! Plus date nights make any week fabulous. I'm glad you're getting to spend time with Dannon. It seems to have been a good week all around! Glad you had fun looking through your wedding photos - it's so much fun to recall those wonderful moments!

  11. Sounds like you are having an extraordinary week. Like a little early gift :)

    After tomorrow, I'll be thankful to have submitted my 'personal statement' on my school apps...can't wait.

  12. Congrats on getting back on the wagon! And what a great list of things to be thankful for :) And have I ever mentioned how cool I think it it is that you play the ukulele??

    I have many things to be grateful for, too. Enough caffeine to make it through the day, sunshine in New York, weekend memories of dancing and seeing old friends, a short week at work, and the chance to see my family (and doggie!!!) this coming weekend :)

  13. Kim, u should post a vid u playing the ukelele!
    *waiting* :D
