Counting Our Blessings - Link Up!

I'm sorry that it's been some time since I've done the link up. I always miss doing this but sometimes life gets in the way. However, here we are and I'm so happy to be so. Let's get started!!

51.  I was able to do a bit of "back to school" shopping a couple weeks ago. No, we don't homeschool anymore and I don't have smaller children but I love to shop for school supplies! There's always some really fun things this time of year and I found some adorable things! I went to Office Max specifically for highlighters but found this cute thing!

A poodle pencil case!! Can you stand it? I just adore this little thing and Mitzi seems to think that it's adorable, too, and has tried to steal it quite a few times. lol I have to make sure I keep it out of reach or she runs off with it. Both are so cute!!

52.  I did get my highlighters and was fortunate enough that I was at Office Max when they were having a big sale. See the mechanical pencils? They were only 14 cents! The Owl erasers and gold pens were from the Target Dollar Spot. See why I love this time of year?

53.  I made a tassel for my planner with this fun yarn. I know it's a bit large, but I just love it. When I showed it to my husband, he laughed because it was so big. lol One thing is for sure, I won't be losing it anytime soon!

54.  Our monsoon season has started here. We've had a lot of rain and, one day, we had quite a bit of  hail. Here's a picture after the hail storm. It looks like snow, doesn't it? I was quite worried that it was going to break one of our sky lights, but thankfully, it was fine.

55. Of course, my blessings wouldn't be complete without a photo of Mitzi! She is needing a grooming here but is going in next week, so please ignore her scruffy look. She's such a doll and blesses me beyond measure every day! This is her in the morning as she's just waking up. Of course, she has her Lamb Chop.

What are your blessings? I hope you'll share on the link-up! I would very much appreciate it if you shared my Counting Our Blessings button. As always, I'm so grateful you came by and for your sweet comments!

Blessings - Julie
