I Am Thankful For…

1:12 PM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

OK, so I admit this is a little cheesy and something that I used to dread as a teenager, but I feel that it is necessary and so appropriate to share what I am thankful for this year. And what better day to share this with you than on Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for….

My beautiful, hilarious, innocent, precious kids…

My supportive, honest, hard-working, dependable, handsome, lifts-me-up-when-I-am-down husband…

My amazing extended family (my 2 sisters, my mom, my dad, step-parents, nieces, nephews, grandparents)…they are some of my biggest cheerleaders.

Thank you!

My health and happiness…

The fact that I am able to spend Thanksgiving with my whole family in Idaho surrounded by the mountains covered with over 2 feet of snow…

And last, but certainly not least, the success of Hip2Save thanks to all my amazing readers!

In the spirit of the holiday, what are YOU thankful for?

    Very thankful for a warm roof over my family’s heads when so many are homeless. Plus food in the fridge and pantry and the bills paid. :-)

    I have so much to be thankful for. I am thankful for my DH who had to work on Thanksgiving. I am thankful for my 2 wonderful children and I am so very thankful that we are all healthy. I am also very thankful that this time last year I happened upon Hip2save website. My DH’s company shut down last December and I don’t know how we would have managed without Hip2save and Collin. Collin you have a beautiful family. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Hip2savers.

    I first want to Thank-you for sharing with us photos of your beautiful family and your gratitude.
    I am so thankful for my loving family and friends. I am thankful for a warm roof over our heads, food to eat, cars to drive, the basic things in life that we take for granted, that my family has that so many do not. I am also thankful to you, and this wonderful site that you put so much hard work into. I have saved my family so much money with all the deals that you post. In fact I just placed an order with my Rue la la credit for a Christmas gift that I got for FREE!! And last night I used my Gilt Credit to purchase two Christmas gifts, again for FREE!!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    Your family is precious! How awesome to ‘stop and reflect’ at what’s most important in life, I think sometimes I forget to breathe with how crazy life is, thanks for ‘taking a moment’ to share a bit of heaven with us, it’s just what I needed! I thankful for my family too even on three hours of sleep.

  • ann says:

    I am thankful for adding you to my life. My, each of your children have that sparkle in their. Beautiful family! And thank you, hubby, for serving our country.

  • danielle says:

    THANK YOU COLLIN! Your pics of you and family are amazing! do you have a photographer in family?

  • Erica says:

    I am thankful for my silly, loving, awesome son, who unknowingly turned my life around for the better the day he was born! I am thankful for the most amazing man in the world, who worked 8 long hours on Thanksgiving day then spent 7 hours Black Friday shopping with me so our son could have what he really wanted for Christmas! I am thankful for a mom who I can also call my best friend! I am thankful for a Dad who proudly tells people I am still a Daddy’s girl, even though I’m nearly 30! I am thankful to have an amazing circle of friends who are always there for us, no matter what! Last, but not least, I am truly thankful that even though we may not have everything we wish for in life, there is nothing that we NEED. We have a comfortable home, good food to fill our tummies, warm clothes to wear, and never-ending love and compassion for each other!!

    I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to you and everyone else “behind the scenes” at Hip2save. I enjoy the site, my children and and I watch your videos and they make us laugh. I enjoy the money that I save with the deals that are posted, and I have enjoyed being able to give back this season. Have a great weekend, and take it easy. Thank You!!!

    Thank you for sharing all those lovely pics! I am thankful for this website, that has saved me so much money, especially in these troubling times.

    I am grateful for so many things. That after 4 1/2 months off of work, after 2 rounds of strokes, that I am back to work for at least a few hours a day. That today, I have a home, food, and hope for the future. I’m so thankful for my children, and my precious granddaughter! She lights up my life in so many ways.
