  1. I enjoyed this so much, I linked up myself. I can't wear Under Armour b/c they make Auburn uniforms so it's all Nike in our family:) I have been thinking of trying the running thing out though. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. What a wonderful list! You are just adorable! (Or is that adorkable?) Nice to "meet you"!

  3. Just stumbled upon your blog, your ABCs are precious!

  4. Great list Mel. Very clever in using some of those tough letters, such as the X. You have been finding lots of things to be thankful for, and that is an inspiration to all of us, because if we look, we will find multitudes also. Love you muchly. Mom
