Thankful Thursday [On Beds, Phones, and Blankets]

It’s Thursday once again and I’m here with my weekly pick me up. 
I’m thankful for my new bed set. Okay so this may seem like kind of a material thing to be thankful for, but it’s true.  Ever since I bought my big girl queen bed, I’ve had my twin-sized comforter on it.  I really liked that comforter because it was very warm and cozy.  But after having it for 5+ years, I was ready for a change of color scheme.  The brown, earthy tones seem to showcase my maturity (insert sarcastic laugh here) a little more than the flowery blue thing from before.   
It even came with a bed skirt!

I love it!
I’m thankful for warm cozy blankets and sweatshirts and jackets.  I think it’s safe to say that winter has finally arrived here in Chicago.  The temperatures have plummeted and it’s chilly.  I finally traded in my fleece jacket for my coat.  So much warmer!  When I get home at night, I love cuddling up in my sweatshirt and sleeping under some heavy blankets.  This way I can continue to keep my apartment heated at only about 65 degrees.  Hey, what can I say? I’m cheap.
I’m thankful for Turbokick.  My gym offers free classes and my favorite class is by far Turbokick.  It’s high energy dance and kickboxing combined.  And it’s awesome! It’s also very intense. I’m always in there sweating away and shakin’ my bootay and having a blast.  Getting my butt to the gym is so much easier when I have that class to look forward too.  And to give you an idea of how intense it is, on Tuesday for 1 hour 22 minute workout (hour class plus some weight training) I burned 859 calories according to my heart rate monitor!  That’s a pretty good number!
I’m thankful for my phone.  Because it allows me to talk to all the wonderful people in my life.  I’ve talked to my mom no less than 3 times this week.  It’s nice to just be able to chat. 
I’m thankful for you! Thanks for reading.  I do a little happy dance every time I have an email in my inbox that someone left a comment.  It makes my day!
