31 Days of Thanks: Day 4

NOTE: Days of Thanks will continue Nov. 5 with day 5.  Thanks!

Today I'm thankful for my roots!  I have lived in Kentucky my whole life, well within a two-mile radius my entire life.  When I wasn't living in my hometown I spent four great years in Lexington at the University of Kentucky.  Here's a post I never got around to posting earlier, my accent vlog, there's no denying my roots!

Accent Vlog (9/1/11)
I loved watching some of the accent vlogs posted on Jenna's blog.  So last night I had Grant watch Jenna's husband's vlog and he agreed to do it!  So here are our accent vlogs.  Here is mine, I'll have to figure out why Gran'ts won't load correctly.  I think it's so funny to hear yourself on video, I sound kinda country I guess.  Western Kentucky accent :)

I wish the list of words to say had included huge.  Grant never pronounces the "h" in huge. I think it's the oddest thing.

So here's our my vlog.  Go back to Jenna's and watch everybody else's too!

So, what do you think?  Is this a Southern or Country accent?

31 Days of Thanks:Day 2

Today, I am thankful to have my first draft for my literature review turned in!  I am currently working on my Master's degree in Elementary Education.  I'm in the Research class, which they say is the toughest one I'll have.   I'm glad this is the toughest one and that I'll be finished with it in December, yay!!! 

Today was a great day at church.  Lots of my Sunday school girls performed in the worhsip this morning.  They are such a blessing! 

This afternoon my wonderful husband worked around the house and cleaned up my car while I was busy writing.  I am definitely thankful for him!

Lastly, our fish fry at church tonight was a great time.  I love watching Vince explore new things and new people.  He's back in a "friendly" stage again where he'll go to most people.  He seems to especially like men.  I don't know if it's because they're funny, funny looking, or what! LOL

I'm glad I'm taking time to write these things down.  It's the small things in life that make up our life :)

31 Days of Thanks: Day 1


So today I'm linking up with the Nester and starting a 31 days series.  I am going to blog the next 31 days about taking moments in each busy day to notice the things around me that I am thankful for.  I think it is so easy to be caught up in the busyness of life that I often forget all I have to be thankful for.  I want to cherish all the cuddles and giggles with my baby, I want to get excited when my husband and I can have actual conversations!  I want to remember this time in my life and keep these memories.  I hope through this series I will also inspire some others to look around at what you're thankful for.

Today, I am thankful for time with family.  We took a family trip to Reed's Orchard to help my mother-in-law Sherry celebrate her birthday.  We had lots of fun!  Vince wore a "Bones" shirt with a light-up basketball on it.  Grant had a dancing skeleton in his college days and his parents still have it.  Its named "Bones" and now Vince loves to push it and dance with him.  You can see Vince pointing to his shirt in one of the pictures below.  We had a great time on the huge tube slides there.  They had a great incline so we went fast.  Vince rode down with each of us.  We shot out so quickly that there weren't any good pictures, but we loved it. 

See you tomorrow for Day 2!
