Gratitude Challenge: The Final Week!

Well I made it! 21 days, 10 things to be thankful for each day. No, I didn't do the days all in a row. But I did do it for a total of 21 days! Check out my friend's blog, if you want more info. She's the one who started this whole challenge thing. :)

Saturday, Oct 29th
  • Granny Smith apples.
  • Time alone. 
  • The Two Towers
  • Dear friends.
  • Cold autumn air and warm cozy blankets.
  • That I can go to dance this week!!
  • Humor and sarcasm. It really does make me happy.
  • INTERNET! Absence makes the heart grow fonder, after all.
  • Home-made super easy delicious hot chocolate.
  • Watching vloggers on youtube. 
[This was right after our Texas vacation. Hence the absence from internet and dance class.]

Sunday, Oct 30th
  • Being able to go to church after missing two weeks.
  • That our church is so amazing that I actually miss it when we're gone.
  • Converse.
  • A soccer pick-up game with a bunch of friends
  • Hot apple cider. 
  • Reading.
  • Watching more youtube vids.
  • Being able to chill and be lazy. 
  • That we have our doggy back. She spent two weeks with some of our friends, and we missed her lots. 
  • Blogging again. 

Monday, Oct 31
  • Being able to get up early and not die.
  • Getting tons of school done.
  • Art. 
  • Heath candy bars.
  • Gettin' my nails did. OK, so I actually did them myself. But still.
  • Emails from friendies. 
  • GOING BACK TO DANCE! Sheesh. I've missed it. :D
  • Getting hugs and having people tell me they've missed me. <3
  • Being able to wear crazy crazy tights to dance, cuz costumes where allowed this week. I didn't have an actual costume, but my tights were awesome. Bold black and red stripes, baby! Oh, yeaaah. 
  • Watching a movie with the family in the dark. Even if the movie was a bit of a dud, it was still fun. :)

Thursday, Nov 1st
  • Being able to get up early.
  • Coffee. I have liked having a small cup now and then since I was like 5 ... my grandma started me out young. :) But I recently discovered what a pleasant way it is to wake up. You drink warm coziness, and then all of a sudden you're wide awake! None of that rude awakening stuff for me, dude.
  • Getting lots of school done. Feels good! Woot!
  • Getting tons of good ideas for a writing project. Can't wait to see how it turns out!
  • Finding super funky cloth for a sewing class project. One of the patterns I picked was a cow print. :) Why? Cuz it's awesome. Duh. 
  •  Getting together with a bunch of people, turning up the music and cleaning our church. It was more of a party than a chore.
  • Learning new dances with some of our friends. They're hosting a ball soon, and we went out to learn the new dances. They're "old fashioned" dances, where you switch partners and go under arches and stuff like that. And. It's. Awesome. 
  • Guys who actually enjoy dancing, and don't think it's sissy (cuz it's not). YES. 
  • That God has a sense of humor. 
  • Being able to make an epic wish at 11:11 p.m. on 1/11/11. But I need to think of an even more epic wish for 11:11 on 11/11/11. Just a few days to go!!
It was a great day. :)

Wednesday, Nov 2nd
  • Being able to get up early, yet again. (Being able, as in not dying of tiredness.)
  • Getting most of my school done, yet again. Oh, yeaaah.
  • Having a friend to chat with when I needed a break.
  • Going to my dance studio. Have I mentioned how I missed it??
  • Having another person tell me they're glad I'm back. *warm fuzzies*
  • Tap. I still stand around scratching my proverbial head most of the time, but hey. I still love it, and you can't stop me!
  • That Dad said I could look into getting texting. Not *quite* there yet, but I have permission to check out prices and stuffs!
  • Hot apple cider. Again. Hey, I like the stuff, OK?
  • The Biggest Loser. I don't know why, but I really enjoy watching that show! 
  • Bed. For once in my life, I wanted to go to bed. *TIRED!*

Thursday, Oct 3rd
  • Sleeping in, first time this week. YES.
  • Isaiah 30: 21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it."
  • Not having sewing class today after all. I love sewing class, like a lot. But I was glad to have one less thing to do today.
  • Sunshine. And semi-warmth. In November! 
  • Seeing my cousin and aunt, even though it was only for a few minutes.
  • A mostly clean house.
  • Funny things on the internet. For example: Go to and search "Do a barrel roll." Seriously. Do it. It's super funny. :)
  • Ballet. Are you getting tired of this being on my lists? Well tough. Cuz it's one of my favorite things.
  • Fizzy Sprite. 
  • My family.

Friday, Nov 4th

  • Beautiful weather.
  • My Mom and Dad.
  • Being able to ... *drumroll!* get my own phone with texting!!! Good day. :)
  • Sending my very first text ever. Shocking, right? I love doing new things. 
  • That my sister (a wedding photographer) booked another wedding! 
  • That my brother (who hires me to do all his online work) sold another item on etsy
  • Being able to play soccer well tonight! 
  • Watching Seven Brides for Seven Brothers with the family. :)
  • Homemade pizza.

So there we go! Counting all three weeks, that makes 210 things I'm thankful for. Not bad, eh?

So what are you thankful for? Do tell.
