Have you ever been driving in the car and a certain song comes on, and it puts you in a mood where you just think deeply about life? That happens to me every time I make the drive to my parents’ house. I love listening to music on the drive, and I always have a few songs that just put me in that mood where I think about everything going on in my life. Sometimes they’re good thoughts, sometimes apprehensive, sometimes sad, sometimes ecstatic. Today was one of those days with good thoughts, great even. Spending time with my parents is always so comforting, even when nothing’s going on. It was great to be with them all day and then to come home to my husband. Like I said in my post a few days ago, I feel so blessed with the family I’ve been given. I hope you all had a wonderful day today and are having a great week so far!
1.) I love making the drive down to see my parents, especially early in the morning. Seeing the sun come up is absolutely stunning.
2.) My mom, my sister, and I enjoyed a delicious breakfast at Panera Bread before spending the day shopping. I let myself indulge in a frappucino-esque drink, and it was delicious! I’m a sucker for bagels, as well, so…oops.
3.) Of course, a trip to Target was necessary. Who can go shopping and not stop at Target? It’s a must every time Mandi and I go out, and my mom and sister enjoy it, too! (Along with every other woman I know.)
4.) I tried on lots of cute pieces while at Target. They had some great sales going on, and I couldn’t resist! I felt silly taking a picture while trying on clothes, but this was part of my day, so here ya go. Keep an eye out for some of my new purchases to be in future posts!
Adam and I don’t have any pets, so I cherish every minute I get to spend with our family dog when I go to my parents’. Her name is Coco, and as you can see, she is very good at giving the puppy eyes when she wants food. She may look cute and innocent, but you can tell in the next picture that she’s only got one thing on her mind. What a cutie!
