Thoughtful Tuesday: Rainbow

Each Tuesday, I'm going to share something I am either: 
a) thankful for, b) something I witnessed that was an act of kindness, or c) something I did to "pay it forward"

I'd love it if you'd join me. One day a week. One thing. It can take 15 seconds or 4 hours. Don't you feel better when you are able to notice the pretty things in life? Leave a comment here, or share it in your own space, and enjoy being thoughtful...in more ways than one!


This Tuesday: Rainbow

I've mentioned this a few times before...but its so weird that it needs to be mentioned every now and then so you, my dear friends, are reminded how I am a few crayons short of a full box. 

I cannot eat a pack of M&Ms until I have separated them into rainbow color groups. It all started innocently when my Mom was teaching me how to count and recognize colors, but little did she know...she was creating a monster. (Love you, Mom!)

So when my BFF offered to send me a magazine that I could not for the life of me find here on the East Coast, she thought it would be cute to send me something else.

Pre-sorted M&Ms! She saved me A LOT of work!

I also wanted to share an act of kindness I witnessed this week....

My bloggy friend, Courtney, went out of her way to get a beautiful arrangement of flowers sent to our bloggy friend Suzy to let her know we were all thinking of her during her grandmother's funeral. Long story short, the florist failed. So all of Courtney's hard work didn't work out exactly like she had planned, but she handled the whole thing with grace--and in the end, we all know it was the thought that counts! 

What are you sharing on this Thoughtful Tuesday?


  1. How thoughtful of your bff:-) I'm actually eating M&M's as I type this! yumm-o!

    And thank you for including me. It really is so sweet of you to recognize me. Love you tons! xoxo

  2. So awesome that your BFF separated them for you! That's love, man! And yay for sending Suzy flowers. :)

  3. I'm a little like you in the sorting area. I wonder if my mom used the same method to teach me counting and colors?

    I like the "what goes around comes around" in this post (thoughtfulness).

  4. I have Thoughtful Thursdays on my blog! Fun! I love your photos and your blog. I can't wait to keep following. My parter is out of town this week so I can kind of relate, but it's not the norm for us. And he would never leave me "love" on a post-it, he just doesn't think that way.

    Oh, if you're interested, I'm having a book giveaway this Friday. You can enter easy any day this week.

  5. the m&m's ROCK! you have an awesome BFF

  6. I'm also a color sorter! Crayons, m&ms, lucky charms (i eat them in the order of the rainbow), etc. :) But I think the sorting is 1/2 the fun - does that make me even weirder?

    Love your idea about a "Thoughtful Tuesday". I'll be following you!

  9. Oh my gosh I love the look of sorted m&ms - what a cool thing for your bff to send you! I'm a nerd when it comes to separating colours of different candies too...

  10. I love this idea! I was the recipient of a RAK today, as a matter of fact, and I absolutely have plans to pass it along.

    It made my day - and that's a feeling that needs to be sent back out into the world :)



There is nothing like a good pair of jeans; they shape us, support us and make us look our best. I'd love for you to share your jeans with me!
