Happy Thanksgiving Week everyone. I cannot believe Thanksgiving is already here, it really is crazy how time has flown by this year. I feel like just yesterday I was soaking up the sun in the pool. Do not get me wrong, I welcome the cooler weather and the holidays, just crazy how time flies.
Anyways, I wanted to share something with you that happened on Friday. I was having a really terrible day, it was just one of those days that I felt defeated and was questioning alot of things in my life. We all go through that, I know. I shared my emotions with a couple of girlfriends and one point just sat down and prayed for the strength to stop beating myself up and believe in what is meant to be, will be. A few hours later, I was leaving the daycare on my way to take the twins to see the movie Trolls and a car accident happened right in front of me. I am not sure how we did not get hit; because the car in front of me was slammed into, as well as, the cars on both sides of me. I immediately called 911 and pulled over and cried. I seriously broke down and just balled. The twins were in the back seat screaming at me to go, as they wanted to get to the theater but I was so shaken up, I could not move. As I sat there, realized what had happened, and it hit me, we did not get hit. God was watching over me and the twins in that moment and all those emotions I had that day were gone. See in that moment, I realized I have so much to be thankful for this season. I have a wonderful husband who puts up with me daily, healthy children who might be challenging at times but are my world, a solid family who stands by us no matter what obstacle comes our way, and so many wonderful friends around me that love and truly care for me and my family. I felt so blessed that we were not touched in that accident. It is sad to say but it is sometimes the events that happen in our lives that make us snap out of a funk and remember the blessings we truly have; or realize we need to stop worrying about everyone else and focus on what matters most. As we pulled up to the theater, I took each of them out and just hugged them a little harder knowing everything was going to be alright. I also thanked God for keeping us safe. So, as we go into Thanksgiving this week, whatever you are doing or wherever you are at, I hope you sit back and spend a few moments keeping calm and give thanks!
The outfit that I posted today is very outside my comfort zone. I have never been one to wear peplum tops, but I felt like sometimes going outside your comfort zone is good for your soul. I am so glad I did too, because it fit perfect. The top is stretchy so it can fit to almost any body size. I am small frame but I have had twins so I am no stick, and I felt very comfortable in it. I felt slim in this top. I am wearing a small for size. My jeans are stretchy jeans that can be found at the Gap. I love these jeans because the longer I wear them, the stretchier they get. As you have seen in other posts of mine, the OTK boots from Nordstrom have become my go to boots. Plus, I can wear them all day which is even better.
