Ooh -- nice camera. I've been getting some cravings for a better "didge" as we call it, too -- look forward to hearing how you like it, and seeing your photos!

Ooo I used to LOVE Jason's Deli when I lived in Texas!!!! I miss Jason's, but not Texas. LOL! Oh and you are so going to love that camera! I got one for Christmas (actually talked hubby into getting it before Christmas) and I absolutely love it! I can finally get good pics of my very active toddler. He's always on the move and I would either get him in a blur or he would be completely out of the frame before the shutter went off. Having a DSLR is pure heaven!!! You have so much control over your pics...its fabulous!

Oh so exciting about the camera. I have one too (but the 2003 version - I am NOT complaining). You will LOVE it! I can't wait to see all that you creat with it.
A wonderful list...and now I want to listen to Emmylou too - I love her...

You will LOVE the XT. I just got it and LOVE it so much more than the previous version of the Rebel. Enjoy it. Take lots of nice pictures!

Do tell who you hope wins at the oscars?
The first month of being meat-free! That is the hardest step, the first month! I have been meat free for 30 years, in fact Frenchhusband and children are meat free too. I am glad you are taking thie route.

Great idea for a list! Although, I'd question reruns of Sex and the City. I much prefer the live show.

Happy Birthday to your mom!

One month meat free...that's so cool!!! When I went meat free it was a little difficult at first, but I got use to it and love it! It's been 11 years! I wish you the best!

...and I am not even going to click on that link to the camera....not after all of those comments...next thing you know I will have it in my mind that I NEED one to survive!....not gonna do it! ;-)

Hi Michelle,
I have so very much missed your posts the last couple of weeks I was without access during the move. Happy Birthday to your mom! Thank you for your list of gratitude! I am inspired to add a few of mine this morning- the daffodils which came into bloom yesterday outside my front door, the amazing book I just finished last night by Geneen Roth about how our relationships with food may either warp or illuminate our precious days, and for today- I'm going with Laini to the first outdoor open art market of the year! I send you a hug and love!

...just don't watch too much Sex and the City in one sitting. I tried to have a marathon one rainy Saturday and had 2 seasons through Netflix. After a few hours I felt like Joey and Chandler from Friends when they had free porn...my brain hurt and I felt kinda dirty.
;)

Love your grateful Friday list!

LOVE IT!! You are one gorgeous mama. (p.s. i always wished i had freckles--they're so lovely!)

You can tell so much about a person by what they're grateful for. Reading your list makes me smile.
