Blessed Friday

Happy Friday Ocean Dreamers! So, since some of you participate in Thankful Thursdays which I adore by the way, I thought I would try out my own invention of Blessed Fridays. You see, I think on Friday I tend to lose my focus sometimes because it is weekend. I only think about all of the fun things I can do on the weekend without taking the time to listen to my heart and know what truly matters.

I need to take the time to reflect and remember what matters the most, what I have to look forward to, and what I am blessed with. So hence, I am going to try and do this every Friday!

Side note, my internet at my apartment is still not working, I am so frustrated with AT&T right now. That is the one thing I am not blessed with, lol. AT&T told us to call our router service, our router service told us to call our modem service, and our modem service told us to call our AT&T service. Oh brother! Then...AT&T wanted to charge us $100 to speak to a tech guy! Are you kidding me?!

So I haven't had time to check your blogs today because work has been super busy, but I will hopefully have the internet up and running this weekend! Hopefully. I am going to hold my breath.

Tomorrow I am going to call and get cable internet set up. I am through with AT&T, except for my cell phone service that is. ;P

Okay, now that I have that out, 5 things I am blessed with this Friday:

1. My job. I haven't talked about my job very much on my blog, but I seriously love working for a magazine company that just soaks up creativity. I love seeing the art, new products, and selling ads for some amazing magazines!

2. My mom. I love her so much! She already has been asking what I want for a cake and what I want to do on my birthday. She seriously spoils me! I am going home for my birthday next weekend and I am so excited to see my family in Utah. I'll be 25 on the 23rd, yikes!

3. Big Kiddo. I am so blessed to have him in my life. He is always there for me, through thick and thin. He also texts me with sweet messages to cheer me up when I'm sad and is there to listen when I'm happy or mad!

4. The beautiful ocean, of course! I am so predictable. I love sitting by the water and just feeling so peaceful. I am so blessed to live by the ocean, seriously.

5. My car, Ariel. Yes, I named my car! Even though right now she needs a new A/C unit and her windshield wipers are shot, I still adore my car. I saved up to purchase her and riding in my shiny red car makes me a happy girl! Plus, I am just blessed to have a car, period.

What makes you blessed this Friday afternoon? Feel free to do a blessed Friday post as well. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, thanks for blessing me with all of you! XOXO!

  16. LOVE the idea of blessed Friday :)
    I'm a day behind in checking in with all of my wonderful bloggie friends, but yesterday... I felt blessed to be alive and to be an American. In light of the memories of September 11th, I was reminded how precious the gift of life really is. 8 years ago, thousands of people got up and went to work, as they did everyday, and most of them never came home. Yup... so thankful to be able to get up everyday and be a part of this world, and discover new things, and love the people in my life with all of my heart :)

  17. Happy Blessed Friday!

    I named my car too...I call it the White Pearl (the paint is called pearl)...and I am a big Pirates of the Carribean nerd...LOL

  18. i can be kind of a pessimist so it's nice to see you counting your blessings. It's so nice that you get to go home for your birthday, have a nice time! And I hope you get your internet all worked out.

  19. I love your idea! So nice tp learn more about you! Have a sweet day! x

  20. Blessed to have my fabulous son, my wonderful daughter, and my amazing granddaughter in my life.

    Blessed to have my dog Sheldon and my cat Mae West.

    Blessed to have my car Betsy (named so because that's what my daddy always called our cars).

    Blessed to live so near the beach.

    Blessed to have so many blogger buddies to share with.

    Great post! This just made me feel better to write this all down.

  21. Love this! I need to start doing a "Blessed Friday" post or "Thankful Thursdays"...reminds me that I need to be grateful for the things I have.

    Working for a mag is my dream job! :)

    Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  22. Lovely post! Ah your job sounds amazing; it's one of my dreams to work for a magazine.
    And I'm blessed for my friends and family. I can act myself one hundred percent and they still love me, despite my oddities and quirk.

  23. beautiful post. i am blessed with a career i am passionate about. a family, who love me. a healthy body. a stamp-filled passport. angels as friends. and a personal relationship with God.

    happy saturday!

  24. awww how cute is ur mum! hope you're having a great weekend lovely! mwa

  25. hi sweetie:)i'm not sure if i ever told you about the award i gave you a couple of weeks ago:)

  26. Hi Sierra! Hope you had a great weekend. That is so frustrating about your internet! It seems like that is always the case- one customer service person just sends you to another! I love your blessing picks. :) I feel thankful my health, my husband, and our family and friends :)

  27. I hope your internet will be fixed very soon...I know how annoying is that...

    I think the idea of Blessed Friday is awesome!

    Thanks for the love you show me every week with your sweet comments :-)

    Hope you have a lovely Sunday, cheers: Evi

  28. My husband and I were just talking about the things that we are grateful for. It is so nice to give yourself a reminder every once in awhile.

  29. Lovely blog, I trust your internet connection will be better soon.
    It is great to see there are still romantic people in the world. These days sex comes first when a relationship starts, and ppl mistake lust for love, and that puts them in a cul de sac without them knowing it until it is too late.
    Have a super week.

  30. I am blessed for everything i have!
