i wish and i'm thankful.

i am linking up with running on happiness for a little wish/thank you time.

i wish i could send all of my readers thank you's for their supportive comments and link love.
i'm thankful for the sweet shout-out from the one and only college prepster carly in her weekly prep talk!

i wish i could resist sweets.
i am thankful my bff left a few extra peanut butter m&m cookies at my apt this weekend.
i wish it was warm and sunny in chicago year round. 
i am thankful i get so excited and happy when it is actually warm outside! 


i wish i could find a wedding venue that pleases everyone.
i am thankful i get to marry my best friend next year and celebrate with my friends and family.


i wish i was a good dancer.
i am thankful i have a man who likes to randomly bust his moves with me and doesn't care that i can't keep a beat.


what about you chickadees? what are you wishing and thankful for today? 


xoxo, 
jillian

  14. awe Jillian, you are such a darling! this list is all goodness, even the "can't keep a beat" reference - i think i adore you even more now cos i'm not alone! : )

    and how cool is it that your bff left cookies for you?! reminds me of a time when i stayed with mine in New York and she got up the 1st morning to bake me a cake at like 6am! i was astounded and then we ate almost the whole thing, it was awesome. Happy Tuesday! ♥

  15. How coincidental - I just blogged about how I wished I was a better dancer. :)

    And I'm so happy that you're getting married next year! The perfect man would definitely be your best friend. It's definitely the most amazing thing to be marrying your best friend. :) Don't worry about pleasing everyone else at your wedding - it's YOUR day! As long as you love the venue, I'm sure everyone else will be happy as well. :)

  19. You have a lot ot be thankful for - that's awesome! I'm thankful for the warm, sunshiney weather (although I wish it were just a tad warmer). I'm thankful for the support of my husband while I'm figuring out how to pursue my dreams. I'm thankful for my cat who cuddles up with me every morning after husband leaves for work. I'm thankful for being married to a man who knows how to cook, because I sure don't. The list goes on and on.

  21. I wish I didn't have belly fat.
    But I'm thankful for it at the same time because it makes me a good person to hug.

    (I'm trying to learn how to be thankful for this even as I work out and eat healthy!)
