Ten Things

Once a month my dear friend, Emmy, hosts TEN THINGS TO SMILE ABOUT.  If you haven't done it before or never heard of it, this where she takes time to reflect on ten things that made her smile during the month.  I love this assignment because it reminds us of the good things we have whether they be simple or grand!  So come on and link up!  

1.  A weekend of swimming with friends and family 
Photo by Emmy
2.  Successful first days of school

3.  Naps
Theirs AND mine!
4.  Milestones in my weight loss journey
5.  Getting that cool shot you've been waiting for!

6.  Kristin for buying her family the game of Life with her babysitting money
7.  Emily for putting out bowls for people in the mornings for breakfast
8.  Ryan for being a good helper
9.  Brownies--well they do!
10.  Having such a successful hit with my FB post last week, that I have decided to turn it in a monthly meme!!

Starting Sept 14th, Emmy and I will be hosting:  THE STATUS QUOTE Where we gather up our friends status updates and post them.  More details to come at the first official meme approaches.  We hope you all come to play!!

This is an excellent idea for a post. It not only lets you count your blessing but you can remember the good things about each month.
Btw congrats on your weight loss - I'm heading in that direction and it is hard.
