Insta-Gratitude Week 18 (EXTRA BIG)

Is this real life?  I am so happy that we hit our $500 goal for the Walk for Animals.  It is 4 days away and if you haven't donated to our team raising money for the Animal Humane Society, it's NOT TOO LATE.  Just click here:

One of my 30 before 30 goals is to raise $1000 for charity.  Raising $500 for this charity makes me so happy.  

Our team has raised over $3000 and we are in 6th place in all of the family & friends team.  So awesome.  I am extra grateful for all the people that donated so far to our walk.  We adopted both of our dogs from the Humane Society.  Quincy was forfeited by his original owners and Lola was actually rescued from an alley way.  Thanks to all of these people for supporting this cause including friends, family, coworkers and people we haven't even met (Sara - I'm talking to you.)

On top of being extremely grateful to all of those people, here is my collection of gratitude for week 18.    I've had a rough couple of days, so I'm working extra hard to focus on the things I'm thankful for.  It is so important to me.  

1.  My niece, Madelyn, playing dress up and giving me a concert.
2.  Snowy bluebird morning last Wednesday.  It was really pretty.
3.  Friday evening sunshine on my face after dinner with J's parents.

4.  Kels trying a veggie burger.  I know it's scary, but she actually liked it.  
5.  First Twin's Game of the season with J money including pretzels and french fries.
6.  Night home with a cupcake (a PB&J cupcake) and a glass of wine.
7.  Successfully taking the dogs for a walk.
