Thankful Thursday!!

Stealing a few minutes while my girls snack before another BUSY evening!!

This Thankful Thursday is for Patience and Creativity!! 
Those who know me personally, already know this. My ever-growing PATIENCE with my surroundings, children, deployment,'s not always pretty but I am thankful for those days that remind me. And, I'm always thankful for my ever so growing CREATIVITY that INSPIRES many and the many opportunities I have to SHARE IT!!

Last night after soccer practice and FRG Meeting, coming home at 9pm was ROUGH!! 
Add in baths & bedtime, I was beat. BUT I had my workouts waiting, Week 8, Day 3 of Les Mills Pump and a Spin Session!! Got it done; 40 minutes of lifting and 45 minutes of Spinning [12] miles! Whewww!! 

Today is a REST day from Les Mills Pump but there's never much "REST" for this Mama. It's what I refer to as 'Active Rest', I babysat my friends 3 kiddos this morning, then picked up my girl from preschool at 12:45, ran a few errands before my first grader had her Thursday early dismissal at 1:55. 

Later, I'm dropping them off at my friends place, and heading over for TRAINING from 4:30-8:30. I'm a little nervous and excited. I've also got a few craft items to continue prepping tonight, once I get home, after the bath/bedtime rush. 

Tomorrow, is another BUSY day full of last minute prep in the AM, meeting with my Social Co-Chair and Last minute purchases for Sunday's FALL FESTIVAL!! Then, my first {Eat.Craft.Drink} Event in the evening, 4 Mama's, 12 Kiddo's, and Holiday Crafts!! WhooHooo!! I've also scheduled my November {Eat.Craft.Drink} Event, a Pie/Mug SWAP; Yuuummmmm!!!! More Mama's and lots of Creative Excitement!!! And, December's Event is already on the calendar too with a Fabulous Cookie Exchange!! 

Okay, I'm rambling,  time to get a few things taken care of before heading out!!

"Don't wait to for inspiration to find you; BECOME IT!!"
