March 26, 2012: Whole Milk

Today I'm thankful for whole milk. 

I used to me a strictly non-fat girl. Lattes, in my cereal, etc. 
I'm totally a convert. 

I read a study that non-fat milk contained more of the "bad stuff" in milk. I don't remember the details, but it kind of stuck, so I started buying whole milk. Oh boy. I must say, I drink less milk overall because I would never pour myself a big glass of full-fat milk, but when I do use it, it's gooood. Everything is so creamy!

March 19, 2012: Breakfast in Bed

Today I'm thankful for breakfast in bed.

I used to think it was weird to eat in bed. Now I totally get it. 
The Hubs has been working, working, working non-stop for the better part of the last two weeks, night and day. But he still thought it would be wise to drag himself out of bed early on Saturday morning, go to the market in the gale force winds, and whip up a yummy breakfast for me in bed. All before I woke up. 
I'm the luckiest.

March 12, 2012: Kindle Case

I got a Kindle for Christmas, literally moments after I proclaimed that I wasn't the Kindle "type". 
I still prefer the paper book and only read my Kindle when I can't get the book I want from the library fast enough. And I still don't think I'm the Kindle type. Whatever that means. Which is why today I am not thankful for my Kindle.


I am thankful for its case.

Cute, no?

And it's totally awesome for disguising embarrassing tween books like Twilight that I may or may not be reading.

March 5, 2012: Introspection

My lovely friend Caroline at Coeur de La posted this. It reminds me of one of the online surveys that were really popular when MySpace first started...but not as cheesy.

Today I'm thankful for introspection.

Sometimes it's fun to think about what makes your own clock tick.

If I was a month, I’d be November.
If I was a day of the week, I’d be Sunday.
If I was a time of day, I’d be dusk.
If I was a planet, I’d be Earth.

If I was a sea animal, I’d be a breeching whale. 
If I was a direction, I'd be West.
If I was a piece of furniture, I'd be a tufted velvet arm chair.
If I was a liquid, I’d be fresh-squeezed lime juice.
If I was a gemstone, I’d be a diamond. 'Cause that's how I roll. 
If I was a tree, I’d be an olive tree.
If I was a tool, I’d be carpenter's ruler.
If I was a flower, I’d be a ranunculus.

If I was a type of weather, I’d be a crisp Fall day.
If I was a musical instrument, I’d be a classical guitar.
If I was a color, I’d be a creamy white.
If I was an emotion, I’d be contentment.
If I was a fruit, I’d be grapefruit.
If I was a sound, I’d be laughter.

If I was an element, I’d be earth.
If I was a car, I’d be a hybrid.
If I was a food I would be blue cheese with honeycomb.
If I was a place, I’d be a beach in Thailand.

If I was a material, I'd be cheese cloth.
If I was a taste, I'd be sweet and salty.
If I was a scent, I’d be lemongrass.
