Today was a good day. These past few weeks have definitely been a whirlwind for our family. During the past six weeks, we have:
-enjoyed a weeks vacation at the beach
-attended graduations and graduation parties
-hosted a dinner celebrations for Allie’s 8th grade promotion
– gone on a 8-day missions trip to NYC
-taken an overnight trip to youth camp for Otis to speak
-prepared a meal for around 30 volunteers at another local camp
– all of that is on top of orthodontist appointments, library visits, laundry, family visits, a couple of beach days, summer reading, and regular church responsibilities/services.
Believe me, we stay pretty busy all the time & I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I just cannot believe that we have already zoomed past the 4th of July!! Time is flying by this year!!
We function as a family of four and do almost everything together. All of this busy-ness has kept us running around and ministering together. That’s such a blessing! Today, Otis and I decided to go run some errands in the morning alone and then enjoy a lunch date together!
Life really does change so much when your kids are old enough to be home alone!! 🙌🏻
Most of the errands were the boring, typical stuff- bank, post office, etc…
We did make a stop at one of my favorite stores! I love going into Ross! I had three birthday gifts to buy and our son desperately needed some new pants! I always find such great deals there!
This is such a cute pillow that I found! Llamas are a joke for our family and so as soon as I saw this pillow, I knew it would be perfect on our back porch!!
On top of new clothes for our son and Otis, I also spotted this dress for only $10.99! (This is why I LOVE Ross)!
After making our purchases, we headed to a new-to-us lunch spot that is close to our house. We are usually always down for tacos and enjoyed the view and the time together!
In case you are wondering, I had the surf & turf taco and the teriyaki chicken taco! And that view is so relaxing!!😃
My brother and his girlfriend are in town and so we are looking forward to some family time tomorrow! Saturday is shaping up to be just as great as Friday!
I hope you all have a great weekend as well!! Be intentional and spend time with those people important to you!!
