Thankful Thursday

Happy Thankful Thursday. Today I wanted to share with you all how thankful I am to have my family all together, safe and with power on in our home. (Thank you to all the hard working AEP guys/gals for all you have done. Thank you to my FIL for working so many hours to help us all get our power on, while going home at night to a  house with no power himself.) The storms here have been crazy. High winds knocking down trees and taking out power. I am so grateful we are finally home and together. For almost a week I took my son and I to my parents. I had made these plans prior to the storms but we hadn't planned on staying that long. Its always hard when you are away from your other half for days on end, even when you are happily with family. It was nice to have a place to be while the power was out and Joe came to spend time with us over the weekend too. So the two of us took advantage and went on a date! It was a BLAST. We went to the local drive in.

We borrowed my dads truck, I packed up two lounge chairs, snacks, blankets and pillows- PERFECT

While at my parents house we had some fun

We went and saw my brother play baseball
Our son LOVES sports

Then one night when I couldn't sleep...
I checked out my old closet and found my wedding dress. 
I knew it was there but kinda forgot.

I haven't tried it on since we got married. 
I still love it and it takes me back to that wonderful day

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful, God loving man by my side. 
I couldn't ask for a better man

Me and my other, sometimes better, half ;)
Safe and sound together and with friends

Such a fun night for a BBQ

We even played a little corn hole
How cute is our little guy, trying to play too

The Ladies 

After a great evening we headed back home to a surprise showing of fireworks

These were our littles first fireworks and he LOVED them
He kept saying "fireworks, awesome, more, fireworks"
It was too cute

So of course, on July 4th, we headed out to see some more fireworks.
It's been some late nights but so worth it
I love family time

I am So thankful

This is what came through
This is our front porch

Stay safe everyone and have a great week
Don't forget to be thankful for those closest to you
