Thankful Thursday

Well, today is not going to be my normal Thankful Thursday post--but we are to be thankful for everything. So here is my list--all the way from Texas!
First, I am sooooooo glad that we get to come to Mo Ranch for a week of work and fun.
It is beautiful here and peaceful--what more could you ask for?
Second, I am thankful that my husband and I both enjoy some of the same things.
While we are in Texas there is something that we both enjoy going to get--beef jerky.
If there is anyone out there that does not do meat--ya might want to skip over the rest of this post. While we are here we head down the road to a small place called, Garven Store.
Each year we do not consider our trip complete until we are back in our vehicle with our little brown bags. I learned last year to never, never put my jerky in a zip lock bag-----I lost my jerky to moisture. :(
Back to the store(a picture is below).
Garven Store, is one of the oldest remaining convenience stores in Texas. This family business has been here since 1932--it's over 70 years old.
No only is their BBQ great, but their jerky is fantastic, incredible, and taste bud awakening good.
How is that for a commercial?
When I told them that I was going to post about them on my blog--
Now--- I can certainly be thankful for that!
So, if you have a hankerin' for sum great jerky
You'll be thankful you did!
Now I feel like I just did a info mercial. :)

For more thankful Thursday visit Iris--our hostess- over at Sting My Heart.

P.S- that is my man waiting patiently to open the door for me while I finish taking my pictures.
Isn't he sweet?
Oh, and those are my knees you see with the jerky--not a great plate presentation--but then I was not waiting to get back to a plate! :)

Yummm...that jerkey looks great. I always need floss or a toothpick after jerkey!
Isn't it always the simple things in life that are just the absolute best!
I'm glad you got to share with us today! Enjoy Texas!

I do do meat, but am not a huge jerky fan. My dad would enjoy some for Father's Day though!

Love it and the pictures! I am taking pictures here, but unable to post them 'cause my mom's computer won't read them. Have a safe trip home and we both will be back home on Monday!

I think my hubby would just love that store with their beef jerky. I have never had it--wonder why I never gave it a try.
I am so glad you had a fantastic time in Texas together.

Thank you so much for sharing your thankfulness with us this past week.

Be blessed today and always.
