Cultivating a Life of Gratitude

I am committing myself, during 2010, to attempt to cultivate a greater awareness of how much I have to be thankful and grateful for by sharing my daily findings and musings with you. It is my hope that by blogging about gratitude, I will be more aware of what is going on around me in my life, my family, my friends' lives and our world.

Team Jacob

So ... I am thankful for date night!  We haven't been on a date since our wonderful Arizona vacation and our life is about to get very full with wedding season rapidly approaching so we asked Grandma Manders to watch E-man and we went to a matinee (for FIVE dollars each - love it!) of Eclipse (best of the "saga" so far and I think I'm Team Jacob EVEN THOUGH I know how it will end ...) and we used a gift card some students had given me to Axel's.  YUM!!!  We had some good conversation, Ross was able to watch the Twins beating the White Sox, we even splurged for dessert thanks to the gift card.  We had a great night out together.  I'm thankful for matinee movie prices, a generous gift card and a husband who is always fun to 'date'. :)


  1. How can you be on team Jacob after the whole "maybe I should just go get myself killed" he is SO immature...seriously and that Edward says he wouldn't fight Jacob for her -- I am determined to get you on the vampire side one of these days :) hehe

  2. Okay - here's my dilemma. If I had only read the books I would for ever and always be team Edward ... but with ONLY the movies I like Jacob better (he's better looking, more realistic to his character and funny). So ... I'm split down the middle I guess ... :)
