Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!  Hope you aren't too busy and get to spend lots of quality time with the ones you love!!  I have the winners of my Blog Candy Giveaway below, but I thought I'd take this opportunity to write some of the things/people I'm most thankful for as well.  I really enjoyed reading your entries, some made me laugh and some made me cry--but I'm glad you all are around to celebrate the holidays with your families!

Quick NewsBitz Sale Mention for ya!

I'm Thankful For:

-My Hubby!!  I have the BEST hubby that ever did live I tell ya (don't tell him--his head's already big, LOL) but he really is.  He is so patient (puts up with my Type A/ADD stuff), loving, kind and always thinking of me in so many ways (brings me a Cherry Coke in bed when I'm up late reading kinda nice)!  I wouldn't want to ever be without him!

-My Kids!  They both drive me crazy on any given day, but they also make me proud, make me laugh, make me happy and make me glad that they're in my lives!

-My Mom!!  For never judging, listening to me complain, whine or holler on occasion, loving me and supporting me each step of the way!

-My Furbabies!  My constant companions, loyal friends and givers of unconditional love everyday.  Yes, they puke, pee & literally drive me outta my mind some days--but I can't imagine life w/o their cute lil faces!

-Cherry Coke and Chocolate!  No lie!  Keeps me going most days, allows me to run around like a crazy person everyday and HEY, it just tastes good!

-My Friends!  For supporting me, being there for me, loving me and cracking me up regularly of course!  You gotta have good friends in your life I tell ya--there is nothin' bettah!

-My Cyber Friends/Blog Friends--for visiting me everyday, supporting me, lifting my spirits up and cheering me on!  I am blessed to have so many friends and great people in my life!

-My Health!  It allows me to be able to take care of my family, myself, craft, cook, read, work-out, drive, play games, take pictures, do laundry & other fun chores (ugh, hee hee) and all those other things that are a part of my life.  I never take it for granted and I live my life how I choose, how I want and doing the things I love most!

-My Motto!  "You Only Get One Life--So Live It Fabulously"!!  (yes, this is my quote by Suzanne J Dean herself and my daily mantra)  You only get one life, one chance to live that life so do what pleases you, make it fabulous & most of all live it fully & completely in every way!
