Today is Thankful Thursday over at Simple.Little.Joys!
What am I thankful for this week?
Here are just a few random things...
- The little babysitting jobs that have given me summer spending money.
- All of my shopping trips with Mom. I love our summer shopping days! We've been able to take quite a few this week, and I've enjoyed every one of them!
- Being able to spend time with Mom and Mema today. We got to stay by the pool for just a little bit, then a storm came. So we just sat around and talked.
- The good news about the mission trip my church has been on this week. It sounds like God has really done a great work this week!
-Ollie. That little kitty just keeps us laughing!
(Can't forget my Fuzzy, though...he might be old and not liking Oliver all that much, but I'm still thankful for him, too. Haha! :) )
- Picnics by the pool. Had one today!
-The pretty sunflowers I see every time I look out my window.
The list goes on and on...I have so much to be thankful for!! God is just so good!

Yesterday, I went shopping with Mom and Erin. I was really going to just be with them and not buy anything...but that didn't happened. Haha!
Me and Erin got new phone covers and also new screen protection covers. They were buy one, get one half price. So we did that. Mine looks almost exactly the same. Zebra print. Except this one has the Alabama A on the back. It looks waaaay whiter, too. My white had gotten pretty dirty. Erin got a really cute cover, too!
I also got a few new clothes and 2 necklaces.
I got this one from Charlotte Russe for $5.99! I've been wanting a key necklace, and this one was cute, but cheap, so I bought it. I also found an owl necklace.
My plans for the day....
-I'm going to get my neon pink retainers!! Top AND bottom. I should have a lovely lisp for a while. Haha. I already have a permanent retainer on top, and now I get the joy of the removables. :)
-Me and Mom are going to a store I LOVE...Hobby Lobby!
-Tonight = church! Our church is doing a VBS type thing every Wednesday night for the summer. The theme is High Seas Expedition, and I help with the snacks. What's on the menu for tonight? Forgiveness Clouds. :)
I've found several
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
P.S. I got my summer reading book yesterday! I've read about 5 pages. I think that's a great start. HA!

But, the plus side of going back to school is the back-to-school shopping!! And that is exactly what mom and I did today. I found some cute new clothes for school...and a bunch of stuff was on sale! :) I got some jackets, tops, and some new camis that were buy one, get one free!
I also found some really cute wedges...$50.00 on sale for $9.00! Gotta love that kind of shopping!
Even though I don't want to say goodbye to summer, I am getting ready for some Alabama football. Everyone keeps bringing up football, and it's making me ready to watch Bama play! I've never really been big on football until last year. I think I watched every game! So, with that said...Roll Tide! :)

So for me, I just decided to blog. I'll probably share about shopping trips, past events, daily adventures, school...who knows what else! I just thought this looked fun, and I'm going to give it a try!
Now, I'll go ahead and share a little story from today.
We found a little kitty on July 4th. My sister, Erin, found him at church.. We were just going to rescue him, but of course we ended up keeping him. His name is Oliver, and he is a MESS! He is going to be an outside cat, but he's so little we are letting him stay inside some for right now.
So anyways, this morning I let Oliver in right before I sat down to eat my lovely breakfast my mom cooked. That was a mistake. I was sitting there enjoying my food, and he decided to climb UP my leg to get some of MY food. This kitty may be small, but his claws are sharp! He left me with ugly little claw marks all over my leg. The only thing I could think about is that tomorrow is Sunday, and I'm wearing a dress...a NEW dress. Guess I'll be wearing scratches on my leg, too. Although I did get rather upset with him, I still can't help but love him. :)
Now, I did say I'm wearing a new dress tomorrow. I bought it especially for tomorrow. Why? Because tomorrow is the first time I will get all dressed up and go to church without my braces!! :D I got them off this past week. After 3 years of having braces, I am VERRRY happy with my new smile.
Hope you're having a great weekend!!
P.S. My blog isn't all that cute yet...I'm trying to figure everything out. Any suggestions or tips are welcome! :)
