November Gratitude: Year 2/ Week 2

Listening now…

If you missed week 1 gratitude, start here.

This week I’m grateful for….

New opportunities.

I got invited to attend a work fundraiser (and work it) and I am not going to lie, I didn’t want to go at first. Mainly because it was a week night (lol) and I am normally very busy with school work and other things during the week. My work friend convinced me to go and looking back I am really glad I did!

This was an event where you could “walk the red carpet” with the non profit agency I work with. The idea behind the event was to debut a documentary that was made about the clients we help (with the clients actually in the movie- many of whom work for the agency now) and tickets sold at the door benefit our programs.

I felt honored to be there and had a great time- it was also really cool to see my logo that I made for it featured on each photo taken on the red carpet!

We also had the opportunity to throw a group for the teens we work with and baked apple pies and crisps and made thankful trees.

It was really cute to see what the kids wrote and to teach them to appreciate gratitude…

A few different kids wrote our agency on their leaves and our shelters that we run, which was really cute to see.

New Sims games!

Sims 4 cats and dogs came out this Friday and of course I made a Molly already!

It’s really well done and you can even create mixed breeds, so I created her Chihuahua- Papillon mix.

I am thinking about doing another A Sim Story series  but with the cats and dogs expansion pack.  (And I would actually continue with it this time….)

Let me know what you think!

My Sim version of Molly acts like a goofball like real life Molly.

A weekend to relax and getting back to routines…

Being an introvert,  I am pretty excited to have a little time “off” from having many plans.

The last few weeks were really fun with Halloween, a busy family wedding, and the work event and group. But I am kind of excited to have a few weeks that aren’t as busy for a little while until the holidays come! This weekend I had a lot of down time which included a lot of Sims time.

Getting back to routines is good, too… that includes going to the gym and back to my spin, zumba, and yoga classes. I haven’t gone in a few weeks and I feel the difference in my body, especially in how tense my shoulders are.

What are you grateful for this week ?

  1. I’m so glad you were able to attend the work event—it sounds as though it was an excellent time! And congrats on getting your logo featured so prominently 🙂 that’s amazing!

    I understand this graphic and feelings of being an introvert in general. As I type, I’m on an NYC-bound train to do a full day of work with coworkers followed by a holiday dinner, then tomorrow I’m back in for a fancy blog event. In my head I’m like “when do I get to put my pjs on again?” Lol!!!

    Omg, Sims Molly is so stinking cute 🙂 have a great week!!
