Today I am linkup with Julie Ann Art, adelynSTONE and After Nine To Five in the Give Thanks Link-Up party!  Thanks ladies for hosting this wonderful linkup and giving me an opportunity to share some of my THANKS!

{1} My husband + baby on the way – So happy to be growing our family this year and especially thankful to my husband who is my ROCK!

Sneak peek of our maternity photos by Ria Photography!

 {2} DSLR cameras – The quality of pictures that you can take with these is just amazing and who doesn’t love a great bokeh effect?

{3} Maternity Jeans – I have some full panel, half, panel, and just plain stretchy ones… either way, I’m thinking I may be wearing these after I have my baby too, HA!

{4} Skype – It’s the BEST way to connect with family and friends because not only can you hear a familiar voice but you can see emotions too – priceless!

{5} Sponsors – Thank you SO much for supporting me throughout the years!  You make my right side (of my blog) soooo purty!

{6} Friends who have thrown and attended our baby showers – We’ve been so blessed to have 3 separate showers and have been showered with so many things for our baby boy.  I absolutely can’t wait to use them all!

{7} Online shopping – Although there is a fear of having to return items, it’s also nice to just be able to shop at the tip of your fingers and not have to drive to stores sometimes.  I am thinking I will be especially thankful for this next year since I’ll have a newborn baby!

{8} Good food – Especially ones that have satisfied my pregnancy cravings this year.  🙂


{9} Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) – What would I do without you? Be a lot more bored, that’s for sure.

{10} YOU! – THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog, commenting when you feel inclined, and letting me know your thoughts!  I have met SO many great friends through here and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  And lurkers, I know you’re out there, don’t be afraid to leave some love as well from time to time, would love to get to know you too!  🙂
