It’s OK and Thankful Thursday | a link-up

Welcome to another “It’s OK / Thankful Thursday,” hosted by Neely at A Complete Waste of Makeup … don’t you LOVE her blog’s name?!

Its Ok Thursdays

to be disappointed ~ GREATLY ~ by the movie, Magic Mike

to spend the Fourth of July at home with Husband, watching The History Channel’s “American Revolution”

to sprinkle black pepper on cantaloupe

to drink an entire bottle of Cupcake Moscato …… in a Dixie cup

to shed a tear or two (or fifty) while watching fireworks

to miss my friends and family in Kentucky like crazyyyyyyyyyyyy

America’s independence and my freedoms

our recent trip to Washington, D.C. and my new perspective on so many things

my Rev.L (she’s awesome, I love her much-ly)

the cooler weather and occasional rain, it hasn’t been as hot this summer as years past

AT&T reimbursing us for the disruption in our Internet service (a credit of $15.76 will be applied to our next month’s bill – I feel like I conquered the world)

      Seriously, I did the Happy Dance TWICE after my phone calls with AT&T. You should try the “pepper business” just once, I prefer fresh cracked but the normal junk will do in a pinch. Did you know your body does not digest black pepper? I’m pretty sure when I die, there will be a wad of black pepper the size of a basketball inside my gut. There, that’s a lovely picture for you to ponder today. You’re welcome.

    Hi Nicole!
    I’m sorry you’re missing your KY friends– KY is pretty awesome (& I understand, because I miss my VA friends like crazy, too). & I love fresh black pepper… on everything! Pretty sure I’ll be trying that the next time I eat cantaloupe, too. 🙂

    Black pepper on cantaloupe? Interesting. Not sure I’ll be trying it though. I like my fruit “just so”. I remember, on my sixth grade class trip, seeing a friend put salt and black pepper on her orange. I was all WHAAAA?! And she was all, “Yes, girl! So good!” Go figure!

    Crying during fireworks? *sighs*

      Hey there!!!! I was just thinking about you while reading your own Thankful Thursday post ….. you should link-up with the rest of us!!!!! Try the pepper thing, just try it. I probably wouldn’t have shed a tear last night if the camera didn’t show military men and women with their families and Whitney Houston singing “One Moment In Time.” Just Saying!!!!!!!
