Thankful Thursdays (Link Up!)...

Well, we made it home from Padre!  And I thought it'd be super fitting to dedicate this week's Thankful Thursdays post to our much-needed and fabulous vacation!

{I'm thankful} that, although, the 10-hour drive was L-O-N-G, we all made it down safely.  And we may or may not have enjoyed a few Round Rock donuts on the way.

{I'm thankful} that we didn't have to rent a U-Haul to get all of our Pottery Barn Outlet purchases back to Dallas. 


In fact, we didn't buy a SINGLE thing, which was shocking.  I guess we really don't have very many big things left to buy for the house, and the discount really isn't worth it for smaller items.

{I'm thankful} for seafood.  Seriously, y'all.  I ate more shrimp in the past five days than I have in a long time.  So, so, yummy.


These boys loved their boiled shrimp.

{I'm thankful} to have made so many memories with my sweet family.


I have the best dad, brother, sister-in-law, niece, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins a girl could ask for, and we had a BLAST playing in the waves together!  And, on that note, {I'm thankful} that, even when we're on vacation, my family remembers the important stuff...

{I'm thankful} for sunscreen, even if I apparently don't know how to apply it evenly.


Seriously, you guys.  What the heck?  I've got stripes down my legs and on my shoulders.  I'm going to look so ridiculous when they finally tan over... (although I suppose I probably already look pretty ridiculous).

{I'm thankful} for this picture.

Oh my goodness gracious, we have all gotten SO many laughs from this dadgum picture.  I was trying to take a picture of my hair (to show what a hot mess it had been the whole week), and my sister-in-law looked over right as I was making this ridiculous, serial killer face and just lost it.  It is a true testament to how much I love you guys that I'd show you the crazy. :)

We had SO much fun on the beach and in the waves, and I'm so thankful for the rest and relaxation.  But most of all?

{I'm thankful} for all the time I got to spend with this sweet girl.


Miss Stella LOVED the water and sand, and she was such a good girl.  I'm already missing her like crazy and am going to need some more quality time with my niece very soon!

So that was our vacation!  Is it wrong that I'm already looking forward to the next one? ;)

Looks like it was a PERFECT vacation :) So nice. And I laughed out loud at your bachelorette set up! I love how it's a family activity! Haha!

Sounds like you had a great vacay! I love boiled shrimp too! I always make a big mess eating them! The pic you took of yourself, just down right hilarious! It's one of those you could totally write a story about! Have a great day!

Oh and I am shocked you didn't buy anything at PB!

I'm famous for those weirdo sunburns too! It never fails no matter how hard I try to put the sunscreen on evenly.

Ok, you didn't tell me that they had PBK outlet too! I'd be in so much trouble.

Great "thankfuls"! I've also had shrimp 3 times this week. And I told my husband we "need" to go to a Pottery Barn Outlet. There's on in Hershey, PA that I've been to, but that doesn't do me much good, now does it...
