Thankful - ROYALS WIN!

It's November 2 now and I'm going to participate in the 30 days of thanks sponsored by Skinny Mom because you know what - we all have at LEAST 30 things to be thankful for!

Instead of posting on Instagram every day, I'm planning on doing a weekly summary with some pictures.  But for now, I'll start with what I'm thankful for on November 1 and November 2!

November 1:

I'm thankful for the KC Royals WORLD SERIES WIN!

Yes, you read that right.  In case you were living under a rock....the Royals beat the Mets in a crazy (as usual) game on Sunday night that we tied in the 9th inning and then completely dominated in the 12th inning.  Holy freaking cow.  Amazing!  

The last time this happened?   I was TWO MONTHS OLD!  Yep, it was 30 years ago!

While I'm not thankful for the lack of sleep these boys in blue have caused the entire city this post season, I couldn't be more thrilled and thankful for the way we have seen this city come together around this incredible team.  But most of all, for the downright joy this has brought my husband.  Jimmy is SO passionate about his sports teams.  Like to a fault in my mind because when they lose it takes him like weeks to shake it.  He's loyal the core and has always been to the KC Royals - through all the years they were downright horrible.  He would drag me out to the K and we'd by the $7 tickets and sit in the outfield on a Sunday afternoon regularly.  It's in his blood this team.

He was over the moon last night.  Literally.  It just makes me happy - everything about it.

Including this shirt I told him to buy me... :)


November 2:

To tag onto the above, I'm thankful for a husband that encourages me to do fun and crazy things, even though I might not want to. 

There is a World Series parade in downtown KC tomorrow durign the day.  I should be at work (I have PLENTY to do), but Jimmy said no matter what he wanted to take a least Charlie to the parade.  Because it really could be a once in a lifetime thing.  He went in 1985 with his family and there is a picture of him (around Maddie's age) that he just loves so much of him in a stroller eating a handful of raisins.  So guess what?  I asked for the day off and we are taking the whole fam (along with the ENTIRE city it feels like - pretty much every school district canceled school - CRAZY!) to the parade.  Crowds and waiting are not my thing in general...add having a 1 and 3 year old to that and yeah - totally not my thing.  But you know what?  I'm so excited.  The adrenaline when you are at something like that doesn't compare.  Since we didn't get to go to a World Series game at the K this year like we did a few times last year, it's the least that I can do - and we are going to have a BLAST!

Here is what the streets looked like during the 1985 parade:

And one just for fun of Jimmy and I at a Royals game earlier this year....

So what are you thankful for as we enter into November?
