this has been a scary week for me... not scary "EEEEK!" but scary "Oh no!" because i am living in a ridiculously small apartment with a man who has a cold.  with every sneeze and cough i run to the window and breathe in the fresh air!  luckily it's been warm lately so we can at least air the house out.

so the main thing i'm grateful for this week is not getting sick!!
[quickly finding wood... and knocking]

i'm also really thankful for...
* new experiences
* contrast showers
* airborne
* getting out of my comfort zone
* modern family
* epiphanies
* leftover christmas money + shopping
* fun giveaways, like lillian's surprises from taiwan {ends sunday} & alli's cute clutch {ends tonight!}
* receiving further clarity about life
* trader joe's veggie & flaxseed tortilla chips with guacamole
* finding some great therapy practices where i can hopefully get closer to finding employment {fingers crossed!}
* the warm sunny weather {i miss you summer!}


and another thing...
i'm so grateful the weekend is here!  as long as everyone still feels healthy, we're going to head over to venice for some coffee and another gallery show at gallery 1988.  this show is a collection of posters inspired by video games.  the frogger poster is pretty fun, so hopefully it will be a good saturday night experience.  come join us if you are in the area!

what are you thankful for this week?


  1. Wishing you all the best & good luck in finding new employment, Kim ! *fingers crossed*

    I am thankful that finally..I have realized the importance of living a healthy life.

  2. I would so love to join you at the art gallery! I'm looking for something around here to go to this weekend, but haven't found anything yet. And I'm excited to hear about the therapy practices -- I'm sending lots of good vibes your way and will keep my fingers crossed that you land the perfect position.

    Have a great weekend, my dear!

  3. Ooh, I hope you can escape your hubby's cold! I have a lingering one and it is a huge pain in the behind.

  8. Aw, I like how big your list of gratitude is this week, Kim! It makes me smile. I have a question - where do you find some of your healthy eating inspirations?

    This week I'm grateful for fresh starts, for health improvements, for finding peace and for stopping paranoia.

    Thanks for always reminding me to count my blessings!

  11. Aww, thank you for the shout out! :) This week, I'm grateful for old and new friends alike :) It's going to be a crazy couple of weeks, but it's good to stop for a moment and remember gratitude...thanks for making me do it!! :)

  12. I am grateful for my amazing students and a three day weekend!!!!!

  13. Great list! First off, you're super sweet. Secondly, I think I would love to try those veggie & flaxseed tortilla chips. YUM. I'll be thinking about you this week with your efforts to find the perfect job for you! Enjoy the summer weather for me; I'm a bit jealous.

    I'm thankful for a solid first week to my last semester of undergrad, a great guy, and finally getting my machine back at the gym!

  14. I giggled out loud when I saw that you're grateful for Airborne. That's awesome!! I'm grateful to have made it through this week work wise - and that it looks like another project may be materializing. Whew!!

  17. Have lots and lots of vitamin C! Jordan got suuuuper sick this week too, so I started drinking loads of Emergen-C. I got sick too, but not nearly as bad as he did, thank goodness!

  18. I'm glad the weekend is here, too! It was a rough week for me as I got wisdom teeth out and got a rejection from a job application... so I'm just ready for a new start.

  29. I hope you're able to avoid being sick! I was going to say make sure to invest in some airborne, but I see you have it on your list :) That helps! As does echinacea and ginger steeped in water with a touch of honey.

    Those flaxseed chips from TJ's are AMAZING! SOOOOO yummy :)

  30. What a lovely list! I hadn't yet seen your gratitude posts, but am thankful that I have! I'll be sure to look for your Friday posts, too! I'd love for you to link in to Thursdays Little Things when you post your fridays (if you'd like). :) ALL good things. I'm definitely in need of strtching myself and going out of my comfort zone and am working on that. I'm also after further clarity. How I could use some right about now. ;)
