Thankful Thursday: Awesome neighbors & Almonds

What up peeps?! Haha, it's Thankful Thursday time again! Time to sit back and reflect on all the things we have to be thankful for! Everybody has something they can be thankful for. Check out what we're thankful for, and then tell us what YOU are thankful for! We love reading comments people leave! Makes us feel special to know people actually read these things, lol! Here we go, our lists:

Jeremy's List:

I'm thankful for awesome neighbors this week! We live in St. Louis, Missouri and hurricane Isaac has decided to head up our way to spend the weekend with us. People all over St. Louis are preparing their houses for the lovely visitor! :) On the news they were giving advice, saying that you should clean your gutters out before Mr. Isaac gets here. You know, to make your house look all "pretty like" for him.

As I pulled into my driveway after work, I saw my neighbor up on his roof with his leaf blower cleaning out his gutters. He stopped to say hey and asked if I wanted him to clean mine out. Of course I said no. I feel bad allowing people to help me, much less ever asking them to. He said he really didn't mind and asked if I'd let him so he could "help a brother out." Now that's a nice guy! He was willing to climb on my roof and clean em out just cuz. I said thank you, not really knowing what t say when someone is going to do something like that for me. I feel like I should go buy him something. That's a huge help you know?!

Not only did he clean out my gutters but he did the older gentleman's gutters next to me too! Now that's an awesome neighbor! This same neighbor also mowed Monica and I's grass before we moved into our house but after we had closed on it. It was our house but we weren't living in it yet (we waited to move in til after our wedding) and didn't have a lawnmower. I honestly didn't even think about the grass til it had been a couple weeks, but my dad said every time he went by to do something it was mowed. Our neighbor knew we were a young engaged couple and kept mowing it til we moved in.... just to be nice! They really have been awesome neighbors to us, and so has everyone around us! It's nice to have neighbors who help you out and look after your house while your on vacation. They've gotten our mail for us, and just keep an eye out on the house for us while were gone. This week, I want to say how thankful I am for our neighbors!

What are you thankful for?!

Monica's List:

I'm thankful for almonds. We (me more-so than Jeremy) have been trying to eat as healthy as possible and these little guys are a healthy snack we both enjoy! I'm a girl who likes to have that crunch.... and almonds have a lot of it! ;) I like just about every type of almond out there but I've been eating the raw ones since they are sodium free. I was munching on them one day and offered some to Jeremy, much to my surprise he said that he would like some AND that he really liked them! For those of you who know Jeremy, he is very picky and the few things he likes to eat are NOT healthy at all! I was so happy to find another snack that he not only likes... but is good for him as well! Yeah!!

I am thankful for my hubby! He does so much!! I've been working a lot of hours and I'm usually pretty worthless when I come home. ;) He has been fixing dinner and taking care of things around the house for me! I appreciate him so much! Nothing goes unnoticed sweetie! I love you so much!!

I am thankful for cooler weather... when I say cooler I mean it's no longer in the upper 100's and is now in the upper 80's and 90's. It's still pretty warm here but it's a little more bearable, especially when it comes to jogging outside! I LOVE me some summer... but I love me some FALL too! I'm ready for hayrides, sweaters, bonfires... Oooo, and smores, can't forget smores!! YUM! ;) Bring on Fall baby!!
