thankful thursday

While every day is a day for expressing gratitude, November is always an extra special time to bring all the beautiful things in our lives to light. I'm thankful for my new friend, Erin, from Miss Lifesaver, for hosting Thankful Thursday!

Here are just a few of the many blessings in my life!

I'm so thankful for a great career. I seriously love what I do. Every day I get to go to work and like all the little things I do: teach guided reading, mentor awesome new teachers, read research on the best practices for literacy, meet with talented literacy coaches, reading specialists, and classroom teachers, spend the school's money on things like poetry collections and student book bags. And how could I forget the amazing kids - they are the highlight of each day! One of my former kiddos from my first year (he's 24 now!) emailed me last awesome. Anyways, the list goes on an on and I can't imagine not teaching :-)

and in searching for this, I fond the following:

Yep, lol-ing!

I'm thankful for such a great boyfriend. He really is one of my best friends - we get along so well, we have fun, he is super witty with his jokes (last weekend, at breakfast, he was 'waffling' over whether or not to eat his waffles, which got cold). Hektor makes me happy and everything is better when he is around :-)

I'm thankful for ASU's awesome record this year! They are winning all the time and that makes football season even more fun! Next up is Notre Dame - cheering extra loud for that one to send some great vibes out to the desert!

The Man Who Shall Not Be Named is the new governor of Illinois. That's bad for teachers and students and public education. I'm thankful though, that his assembly - house of representatives and senate? however you call his people - well, they're still majority Democratic, so that's good. (Well, I'm pretty sure that's a fact.) Gotta make lemonade from lemons, I guess...

Finally, I'm thankful for my new friend, Miss Lifesaver! Erin and I met in real life (IRL) for the first time this week and she's totes amazeballs! We had a great three hours talking and getting to know each other and I know we'll be friends IRL for a long time to come!

That's all for tonight...go check out Erin's blog and link up with her! Then, come back and link up with me on Sunday for my Letters Linky!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Awww! I love that BBFF image! I feel the same way about you!! I can't wait to hang out again!

    And I definitely agree that it's a good thing that our legislators are still democratic. I'm *hoping* that's enough to keep the Scott Walker plans in Wisconsin!

    1. So fun! I'll have to join in the link up fun next week! Great idea, Erin! ;)
