Thursday Thankful Round-Up

It's time to share all of my thankfuls for the week, and I just realized I haven't done any since last Thursday. Shame on me! So here are some I can remember from the last few days:
  • My friend's wedding went very smoothly last Friday. The weather was pleasant (it rained on and off but never when we needed to be getting in or out of a car), it was fun getting my hair and make-up done, Lucy did a great job as flower girl, and it was all in all a really lovely day.
  • My mom and Chris's mom helped so much to ensure the wedding day went smoothly for me. Taking kids to school, picking them up, taking Lucy to get her hair done and delivering her to church, picking up my van from Julie's house, entertaining Lucy during the would have been impossibly tricky without their help. And oh yeah, a special shout-out to Chris's step-dad who picked Lucy up from the reception (which was way out of his way) at 10:00 before she fell asleep right there in the banquet room.
  • Summer vacation is finally here!
  • Chris and I made a little extra money giving blood in the name of medical science.
  • Someone from Chrysler picked up my van yesterday and dropped off a brand spanking new version of it, fully loaded, for me to drive for one to three weeks while they run some tests on my van. And they're even paying me, plus returning my van with a full tank of gas (and we don't have to fill the tank on the loaner!).
  • I got a product in the mail to review and to host a giveaway, which should be happening sometime in the next week.
  • The kids have had a tent made out of blankets and sheets and pillows in the family room all day, and three of them are now sleeping in it. 
  • Movie night with the kids - Harriet the Spy (we just finished reading the book). Mommy fell asleep while all 4 of them made it through the whole thing, but it was still fun.
  • Words With Friends and Word Feud...because I'm all about procrastination worthy time wasters
  • My rose bush is in full bloom and it looks so pretty. And it will keep blooming all summer and early fall. The last two years we still had roses at Thanksgiving.
What about you? What are you thankful for this week?
