living, loving, enjoying every second with my family.
I think too often we get so caught up with our daily going ons that we forget what is really important, and then we take things and people for granted, until we have to do without for a while and boy is that a good kick in the pants.
We've been spending every second we can together and we've laughed so hard at times, and smiled, and thrown out random "I love you's" just for nothing, just because.....handed out hugs and kisses as we pass by each other and it really does make for a wonderful family atmosphere when you let the people you love know just how much they mean to you.
But anyway, so just a few pics of what I've been doing, starting with this first one of one of my favorite coffee mugs, and as you can see by the clock yesterday afternoon called for a nice mug of coffee to keep me awake.
Headed to dinner at Texas Roadhouse which we love, the food is so good, the atmosphere, the decorations etc.
One of my favorite things about the roadhouse is when they all stop to dance. Nicholas on the other hand refuses to look at them, he says it's so weird and random that they just stop serving people to dance hahahahah
On the way home this storm was rolling in
It always fascinates me. While many people fear thunderstorms, I love them and I love watching them roll in, I love hearing thunder, I love seeing lightning and hearing the hard rain pelting down on the roof....but even more so, I love photographing the sky.
But that is a whole other post :)
This morning we headed to the mall, hubby had some Hot Topic coupons for Jasmine to use. She loves that store, and truth be told, I kinda do too LOL But my attention usually goes to the nail polish and I picked up some neon orange today....LOVE it.
Also picked these up for Nicholas, how cute are they?
Walked around Sears for a while and I drooled over the pink tools, what can I say?
Hubby pointed these out to me, they were on sale for 50% off.
Also walked by the Yankee Candle store and of course I couldn't just walk by, especially when I saw their Limited Edition Coconut Collection. Oh Lordy, you have GOT to smell these.
As a special treat, hubby got me all 5 votive holders and scents.
No.1 - Coconut and Sea Air
No. 2 - Coconut and Beach Flowers
No. 3 - Coconut and Mandarin
No. 4 - Coconut and Lime
No. 5 - Coconut and Vanilla Bean
If you love coconut, you have to go check these out.
After the mall we came home and just hung out, and I'm thankful for that because we were hit with another Dust Storm.
and within a minute or two, we're surrounded in this brown golden tinge.
Dust Storms are scary but they're beautiful at the same time, I am a huge fan of nature so I love just sitting and watching it all unfold :)
But now...I'm going to go paint my nails a neon orange that I picked up at Hot Topic, then watch Haunted London on my DVR and maybe a movie after that.
I hope you're all having a fantastic weekend so far :)
