August Twentieth, Two-Thousand Seventeen

August Twentieth, Two-Thousand Seventeen

Hi there, guys! I hope you’re all having a beautiful day. πŸ™‚ It has been a while since I did one of these life update/happenings posts, so that’s what I’ll be sharing today!

This afternoon, I went out with my mom and little siblings to go to our favorite mall, which is called Sugarloaf Mills! It had been years since we went, so I’m very happy we got to go back today.

Just like we did at Zoo Atlanta a couple months ago, my mom went around with Samuel and Elizabeth while Joshua and I went off together. I love having these types of outings with him, and today was great!

First, we browsed around Booksβ€’Aβ€’Million, which is the first store you come to from where we parked, then we headed to the back of the mall. We passed by this awesome larger-than-life Batman, and we had to take a selfie with it!

We also took a picture with Deadpool (which you can see to Joshua’s right), but I accidentally cut off the figure’s head in the pic! πŸ˜‚β€οΈ

Once we were finished there (which was a music store, by the way), we went to Dave&Busters (a huge arcade) for Joshua to enjoy playing some games.

I followed him around and experimented with pictures, as I didn’t feel like spending money on arcade games today!

The picture above is of him playing one of his favorite games there. It’s a robot shooting game, so it wasn’t too graphic haha!

We looked around the prize shop, where he got some candy with the tickets he earned, and I got excited when I saw this pillow. Made me think of you, Beyoutiful!

With that, we headed back out to the mall.

We ended up passing by a store I forgot was there, called Earthbound. They have beautiful clothes, notebooks, room decor, etc. from all over the world, and I love looking around there! Many of the things were out of my buying range, but I didn’t mind. However …

When I found the section with things made in Guatemala, it was meant to be!! Both of these worry doll packages (which I’ll show you in a moment) were affordable and I’m so happy I got them!

GUYS!! I love them so much! πŸ˜‚πŸ’•πŸ’• I’ve been eyeing Guatemalan worry dolls for months on Etsy, and what do you know, the Lord provided a little gift for me today. xx

Now, let’s talk about the wonderful food Joshua and I got:D

He and I both love pretzels (I love ’em more), and Auntie Anne’s has some of the best!! I got the sugar bites, and he got the pretzel hot dog bites.

Once we finished our treat, we walked over to my favorite thing to do at the mall – mini car racing!

Call me immatureπŸ‘ΆπŸΌ but this race track is super fun – and affordable!!! I even won first place today which was AWESOME since I was the only girl racing πŸ˜‚πŸ’–πŸ’πŸΌ

We passed by Mom, Sam and Elizabeth after we left the racing place, so we talked to them for a few minutes. After discussing where we’d meet a little later in the afternoon, Joshua and I went to a store with lots of cool things from China – including katanas (pictured above), which J loved looking at haha!!

With that done, we went to the last store for the day, which was Bass Pro Shops. It was our first time there and MAN, was it huge!! Joshua loved looking around at the guns, bows, fishing poles … and I loved looking at these signs!

It’s so accurate, it hurts! πŸ˜‚

So you’ll have to tell me what YOU’VE been up to today, guys! Anything awesome or fun? Relaxing, even? (That’s the best type of weekend honestly haha) Definitely let me know in the comments below! πŸ’š Thanks for reading!

  1. This is such a blessing to read. This is the way it should be. Making the memories we will cherish. It’s a joy to read how our brothers and sisters are enjoying God’s gifts. And those pretzels, well they are the cherry on the pie! ;):) I really appreciate the pictures. They complete the story. You and your brothers adventure is the cherry on the pie of this post. :):) Just want to read it again, and again

  3. I used to love Auntie Anne’s before I found out about my soy allergy! Those sugar covered pretzels! SOO yummy!
    My brother would have stood in front of those katanas for hours if he could! I think they’re neat for the history part, but the whole destruction with weapons part must be a boy thing! πŸ™‚

    1. We did!! I’m so glad we got to go. Hahaha I know, right?!! πŸ˜‚πŸ’š I can’t see it in real life, but through pictures, I totally can! We do get that a lot, one person thought we were twins recently, lol, no one would suspect the four-year age difference because of how tall he is now! He used to be much shorterπŸ˜‚ haha that is so funny and true! Yeah I loved both of those signs!

  5. Ha, I could totally see the twin thing too!! Oh yes, I can relate, my youngest brother is four years younger than me, also and recently a lady thought we were the same age. Actually, BOTH of my younger brothers are way taller than me 😭 πŸ˜‚
