Thankful 2012

2012 has been a blessed year for us.

I’m thankful for steam in the bag edamame.

I’m thankful that Happy Endings turned out to be way funnier this season.

I’m thankful for Rebel Wilson.

I’m thankful for jeggings.

I’m thankful I’ve gotten to a place where I catch my reflection and I smile, 70% of the time.

I’m thankful people have slowed down the cupcake freak-out and gone back to serving cake so I don’t feel like I’m stuffing my face like Wreck It Ralph at parties.

And, I’m thankful for them…

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a blessed 2013.

What are you thankful for this year?

Mind if I steal this idea and do my own Thankful post? Only mine won’t have photos anywhere near as cute as yours! It’s not easy photographing the elusive teenage boy as they rarely leave their room.

I’m thankful I met you at Gleek Retreat ’11 and discovered that you are as wonderful in person as you are online! Happy Thanksgiving!

This year I’m thankful for my husband. He is my strongest supporter. He believes I can do anything.

Also, I’ve never seen three kids who look more like their parents than your kids! Adorable!!!!

Love, Love, Love the photo collages. Your kids are just gorgeous. Our Thanksgiving here in Egypt was bittersweet. I was happy to be cooking with the 4 kids I’ve got here, but was missing my oldest boy and husband like crazy since they’re still in the US. And then the mashed potatoes turned all gross and I couldn’t find almonds for my green beans and they turned slightly Chinese-ish because I cooked them with sesame seeds instead….and thus it turned into “Thanksgiving, as usual” which kind of made things better. Because it’s a typical day in the Mohamed household when CRAZY rears its head. And it’s raining now, so I’m thankful for that because rain is cleansing and happy to me. Happy Thanksgiving.

OMG. First, your boys are SO handsome. Second, do you curl her hair or is that natural? SO pretty! Love these pictures!
Love your thankful list, especially about seeing yourself in the mirror and smiling.

Love the photos of your kids. I know it’s a creepy thing to say but, it’s happening anyway, you make awesome offspring.

I am thankful for discovering the wonder that is the sweater dress, and my friend Jen who introduced me to it by giving me 5 of her finest hand-me-downs.

Leggings/jeggings + camisole + sweaterdress + boots = sexy Linz for very little effort.

Also, yes, Wyatt’s bowtie is awesome. Very 11th Doctor. Fez next?
