Nicole's (very first!) List: Thanksgiving 2007

Wow, as I contemplate all of the things that I am thankful for at the moment, I feel that it’s a daunting task to narrow down the list to a manageable level, but I’ll give it a whirl… This year, I am thankful for:

not having to come back to work until monday AM.. and having the $$ to fly back to see my loved ones all the way on the other side of the country

chicken finger subs

my HLP-  this is how we do, from 92′ till–

the person who invented tacos and burritos… oh, how i will eternally love thee

being finished with school– FOR GOOD!!

flourless chocolate cake

combined yoga and spa lounges

having a cute little apartment over my head, complete with a working fireplace and view of the city lights and san francisco hills

being so close to the ocean… and the mountains… and the city, all at the same time…

80’s clothes coming back onto the fashion circuit… esp. legwarmers, bright colors, and metallics… you my dears bring me right back to being 8 years old when i was dancing to debbie gibson and the fresh prince and my life consisted of equal parts of informal dance competitions and big games of kickball in the street…


falling in love with myself… finally

purple, green, gold, and blue eyeshadow.. ok, maybe not all on the same eye

pumpkin pie, roasted butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and all of the other yummy offerings of fall (which i use to pretend that there are actually seasons out here!)

finding my voice and learning to listen to- and follow- my heart 

linguine with white clam sauce… with a side of crusty, fresh bread of course!

my robe

living in a city with so much live music!

karate kid, pt. I

my super warm and comfy bed

red wine, esp. zinfandel, temperanillo, and malbec

the kids that i work with

the new common cd

fresh, yummy spicy tuna rolls

MJB’s first album… the whole damn thing 

finally having health and dental insurance!

lazy days at the spa


Wow, I could go on forever– Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  1. I’m thankful for you as well, HLP, along with the 80s, multicolored eye makeup, crusty bread sopping with clam juice and wine, Mary J. Blige and finally, acceptance.
