Oh So Grateful

I'm grateful for....

salty crispy chicken at the local Boba places.

good seamstresses who can fix ugly dresses.

whipped Yoplait key lime yogurt.

a brother who came back early and has been running wedding errands for me during the day.

a big soft purple covered bed at night.

girlfriends who swing by to pick up stuff when I am too tired to go drop it off even if I said I would.

cut fruit from my mom to bring with me to work everyday.

a famima downstairs of my office.

a future mother-in-law who is sewing one of a kind, original and adorable flower girl dresses

pretty high heels

co-worker/friends who offer to make my bridesmaids' 3-piece crystal jewelry for the wedding for free!

hand sanitizer outside of the elevators when I get to work.

a future sister-in-law who has connections to a DJ and a slideshow maker!

a day of wedding coordinator who has already begun to call my vendors for reminders.

the post office sending us packages through the mail.

bridesmaids who are making thank you gifts for every guest.

HD television so I can see the Lakers win and the Celtics lose as if I was there.

public transportation, even in LA!

a future father-in-law who is eager to help construct a backdrop for us.

buddies who have helped me make over 100 Martha Stewart poms

water to drink so I'm not thirsty.

Bar Method on video so I can stay toned without money for the live classes that are $20 each.

a fiance who now goes downstairs to the Temple with me to do baptisms every Friday.


a father who brought along a rolling tape measure and got me the measurements within 5 minutes.

a job that gives me the flexibility to get fitted for both dresses on a Friday morning.

music that makes me smile.

deals and steals at Marshall's, Ross and TJ Maxx

a cell phone.

gchat during work hours.


Martha Stewart weddings website.

smelly lotion.

stuffed animals.

ice cream.

people offering to help.

e-mail on my cell phone.

wonderful counseling from the prophets reminding me of the many tender mercies in my life.

angels from above.

the opportunity to constantly improve.

patience. the lack thereof which reminds me of why I need it.





8 more days until forever with Andy begins.
