HEY HEY! It's Thankful Thursday! This week will just be me unfortunately. :( I know you're all sad. Monica is making a cake for a friend's birthday that is tomorrow. She worked today and tomorrow and I'm taking her out for her birthday tomorrow night with some of our friends. Tomorrow is Monica's birthday! So make sure and drop her a comment on facebook, make her feel good and loved! Poor wifey has been busy lately! Anywho, here's my list:
I'm thankful for nearby entertainment! We live 20 minutes away from Six Flags St. Louis. It has been really nice living that close to a theme park! A lot of people say it's nothing special and they don't know why anyone would want to go there, but I for one love theme parks and am grateful we live so close to one! Monica and I get season passes every year. We can go whenever we want and not have to pay for anything. We pack lunches and the day costs us nothing except the gas there and back, and we can spend all day at the water park, and riding rides! It's definitely worth it! Especially since we're trying to save money for IVF and paying off debt. Really it helps us keep from spending as much money on entertainment during the summer. This week we had the fortune of having a day off together. Rarely do we ever have the same days off, and she works every saturday. It was awesome to have the day off together! We went to Six Flags with Monica's mom, sister, and her sister's friend and spent all day at the water park! It was awesome! Fun to ride the slides and other water rides, and we rented tubes and went around and around and around the lazy river being lazy! Definitely a good stress reliever!
This year Six Flags decided to try a new idea for a meal plan calling it a Meal Pass. One of the cities they decided to do a test launch in happens to be St. Louis! In years past, that is the one thing we would spend money on.... food. I get hungry! We would pack lunches, but I'm not big on packed lunches. I'm not much of a sandwich and fruit for lunch kinda guy. I like heavy food! I would gladly eat the sandwich and whatever else we packed, but sometimes my hunger would get the best of me and we'd have to buy a $10-12 chicken strips and fries meal. Which is outrageous for what you get. This year we saw the new Meal Pass and opted to buy it. It's $50 and includes lunch and dinner everyday! We've already used it 6 times! It's more than paid for itself, and has been awesome! I hope they keep it around!
Lastly I'll just add once again how grateful I am for my wife! I truly believe that God makes soulmates for one another and Monica is most definitely mine! I absolutely LOVE being married to her! She's the best thing to ever happen to me! I agree with a common statement Ronnie makes, that I have no idea how I got my wife! I've been asked that by people at work and all over. lol! She's amazing and I love her to death!
If you have an awesome spouse that you love to death, or something you're thankful for, leave me a comment! I'd love to read them!
