First and foremost I am thankful for this little group of people sitting amongst the mess in Ryan's room...

With Thanksgiving right around the corner I've been thinking of things that I am thankful for, and really I have so much that I am thankful for. Ryan really made me realize just how lucky we are, and thankful we should be. On our way home from preschool yesterday we noticed that some of the yards in the higher elevated spots of our area, had snow in them, and on the cars in their driveways. I stated to Ryan that I wished I lived somewhere warm, that I am not ready for all of this snow. Ryan caught me slightly off gaurd, and said "Mommy, aren't you happy though that we can go home, in our house where it is warm? This winter our house will keep us warm." Yes! of course I am Ryan! Why didn't I think of that? I have a warm house waiting for me, that I am so fortunate to have. ( however there is still a part of me that would love to retreat to a warmer climate! )


So I was nominated by Gena, from The Morris Bunch! Over the last year or so Gena has grown to be a good friend to me. She is an awesome down to earth person. Not to mention an awesome mommy.

My Bag

Okay, so I have never claimed to be the best blogger on the block! I have been tagged, just never mind that it was 3 weeks ago :) Amanda, over at Divine Chaos tagged me to show off the items in my bag, so here we go!

Here are the rules.

Find a safe quiet place free of significant others, nosey meme makers, priests, nuns, all things religious and men in general. (If you're a guy just reverse this process to male and tell us about your wallet, tool box, briefcase or metro sexual accessory.)

1. Dump the contents of your handbag in a pile
2. Take a photo of your handbag and the contents
3. Be brave and explain to your fellow bloggers what lurks inside the handbag.
4. Tag others who might want to embarrass themselves
5. Answer these questions:
Describe the contents of your handbag.
What's the most important thing in your handbag?
What's the most embarrassing thing in your handbag?
What's the smallest thing in your handbag?
Is there anything illegal in your handbag?

This meme was started by Mimi, Queen of Memes.
1) Describe the contents of your handbag.
wallet, chapstick, lip gloss, dental floss, fingernail clippers, nail polish, a pen, lotion, matches, a single earring with no partner, and a CD from a band that was playing at a bar near me (the band is Milligram Smile)

2) What's the most important thing in your handbag?
I'm going to say my wallet

3) What's the most embarrassing thing in your handbag?
Nothing really embarrassing in my bag.

4) What's the smallest thing in your handbag?
I think the earring

5) Is there anything illegal in your handbag?

Well, there it is. The crap in my bag exposed for the blogging world to see. Now it's time for you to show us what you got. I'm tagging...
