Happy thanksgiving from the ninjas!!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to be exact!

Well... TMNT in camo.... And wearing a Disney Princess shirt.... Don't judge... *cough*

Those are my beloved godchildren, whom I got to see this past weekend for the first time in a long time. I swear, hugging them made my world feel complete. Yet another reminder that some of the best things in life are free.

So, the holidays for me are always interesting... I am very close to my family, so there are a lot of gatherings. Have you ever seen Four Christmases with Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon? Then you know how my holidays go. BUT, with that being said, I wouldn't have it any other way.

I went shopping at Barnes and Noble for a calendar for next year, just like I do every year... (I know, exciting, right? I'm such a hellion...) and found the perfect page-a-day calendar:


If you have not seen lolcats or I Can Has Cheezburger, then you have been missing out. If you don't find at least one of them funny, then we obviously won't get along. Just sayin. So now I'm pretty much positive that this next year, I will be chucking the inspirational calendar at work and going for this one. Very professional, I know. The boss will love it.

Two of my favorites:

It doesn't matter what kind of day I've had, this always makes me laugh.
Can't you just picture what that cat is about to do in 3 seconds? haha

I feel this way sometimes when I run in the morning... Minus the tail... Wait, what?

I have now joined Twitter! I know, I'm stepping up in the world. Facebook, a blog, Twitter, what's coming over me? Maybe I need attention... Good ol "Daddy Didn't Love Me Enough" syndrome, who knows. But feel free to follow! ESanders8793

Although I practice being thankful literally every day that I wake up, this time of year is special regardless. Everyone should pause for at least a moment to savor every blessing we have bestowed upon us. Family, friends, a wonderful caring boyfriend, an awesome job, a car that I don't have to worry about breaking down, the ability to enjoy running and other physical activities, and a God who made it all possible for me. Whether today, tomorrow, over the weekend, whenever... Think about (or maybe even write down) all the things you're thankful for. Or better yet, if there is someone in your life that has seriously impacted you in some way, take a moment out of your day and let them know how thankful you are to have them. It can truly make all the difference to someone.

Enjoy the holiday, enjoy the company and the food, be safe, and take in everything around you for all it's worth. Happy Thanksgiving!
