Travel Adventures in The Midwest - Making Memories and Sharing a Coke with My Favorites!


This last week has been a whirlwind of fun, with three family parties and so many fits of laughter induced by good times I can say that my family is the best. My family is kind of a cluster of people, with in-laws galore, so many step (and half) siblings it's hard to explain who is related to who, and even friends that are so close to us all that they are considered family. It's a pretty special blend of people so when hubs and I have the chance to go home we like to have a good time, every time!

Our trip back to the Midwest this time around included flying into my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. Our first stop on the trip was a run to Schnucks to grab Coca-Cola to share with all of our family. After all, nothing is better than a cold Coke and some good ol' family time!

After hubs and I grabbed some road trip essentials and enough Coke to share with everyone we made a bee-line for Tulsa, Oklahoma so we could see my in-laws; the sweetest group of people you'll ever meet! I'm in love with my husband's family and knew that we had to squeeze in a visit to Oklahoma to see them.

The short time we were with my mother-in-law was nothing less than amazing. She had all of our family favorites prepared, including a soup that I ask for her to make every single time I see her! She also made sure everyone got a good laugh in while we played board games and with all the kids in the family on that side, we were provided with so much entertainment we didn't know what to do with ourselves!

Seeing our closest friends and family at her house is always so much fun, but this time being able to giggle over a Coca-Cola made it that much better. With so much to talk about and so little time, I wish we could have stayed longer but I'm thankful for the time we were able to spend at her home.

Next we went to go see my father-in-law and the other side of our wonderful Oklahoma family, they catered delicious Mexican food and we had a blast chatting over the dinner table while sharing a Coke. Spending time at their house is always a joy and they make us feel so comfortable, it's hard to leave every time.

But alas, we had my niece's 2nd birthday to attend so we took the road trip back to St. Louis and made another Schnucks run for balloons and of course, even more Coca-Cola for the party! Her "two-odles" party turned out adorable and I'm so glad we were able to attend.

I'm so blessed with so many incredible family members, from my "sisters" who aren't even actually related to me but are the best sisters a girl could ask for to my in-laws who love me like I'm one of their own... I love my family and I'm pretty lucky that they love me like they do. This trip I came to the realization that sitting around the table with family, having a little bit too much fun, and giggling more than imaginable while sipping a delicious, cold Coke from Schnucks is really what life is all about. I love making memories with these people and hope each and every member of our family knows how much I cherish spending time with them.
