Memorable Family Moments ~ $100 Visa Giveaway

When I look at my life, I count my lucky stars that I am lucky enough to look back at a string of happy moments. Sure, there are bumps along the road, but overall when the days and years run together my past is filled happy moments – big and small. And those moments when I am happiest, those are the moments spent surrounded by family. 

When I think about time with my family, the first moments that come to mind are those that are life-altering (weddings and births) and those that become an annual tradition (holiday celebrations). In honor of the new movie August: Osage County, which is all about family — the good and the bad, here are 5 memorable family moments from our suburban family. 

Our Wedding Day – Married 10 years this spring, every time I think about my wedding day I can’t help but smile. Surrounded by family and friends celebrating the day that I married my best friend, it was everything I dreamed it would be and more. It was magical, and we danced the night away. If I had to do it all again, I would — and I would do it exactly the same. It was amazing, and I would be happy to relive it over and over. 

Christmas at My Parent’s House – With the holidays just behind us, I can’t help to include Christmas in my top 5 most memorable moments. Even with all of the chaos and mayhem, there is nothing like that special day. For our family, we always spend Christmas Day at my parent’s house. Filled with traditions that include foods, movies and decorations that I have known since childhood. It is my favorite day of the year, and surrounded by my loved ones, it is a special holiday indeed. 

The Suburban Mom Family

Thanksgiving At The Ranch – Growing up our Thanksgiving was unlike any traditional Thanksgiving celebration. It was filled with family, friends, riding 4-wheelers, truck rides in the field and bon fires. For the first 30+ years of my life, we celebrated Thanksgiving at my Aunt’s family ranch. And it was awesome! To me, it isn’t a real Thanksgiving unless we are out in the country — and I am a suburban girl through and through. 

The Births of My Daughters – There is no greater moment in a woman’s life like the moment she becomes a mom. Filled with emotions ranging from sheer exhaustion to utter exhilaration and pure love. My life really began when I became a mom, and I cannot imagine my life without those two moments. Each unique and truly wonderful, it is my eternal hope that I can make my girls lives as happy and fulfilled as my own life was in the moment of their births. 

Baby

Awesomesauce Birthday Parties – As much as I don’t want my girls to grow up, oh if I could only freeze time, I love to celebrate their birthdays in a BIG way. The day they came into my life, nothing else mattered other than making them happy. The smile on my daughters’ face on her big day when she squeals in delight at all of my hard work makes sleepless nights and hours of crafting worth it all. I do birthdays big! (And it is time to start planning for March, someone is going to be 6!)

This Friday, August: Osage County opens in theaters everywhere. Featuring  a star-studded cast that includes Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Ewan McGregor and many more and August: Osage County is a story about family. Filled with highs, lows and hilarity, the movie is sure to remind us all of the importance of family — even family that drives us batty. 

August Osage County Movie Poster

August: Osage County tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. 

After you watch the movie trailer below, learn more about August: Osage County online and follow the August: Osage County Facebook page for updates about the movie. (Also make sure you check the Facebook app for more ways to win prizes.)

    My wedding – more of a comedy than one would expect, beginning with my husband arranging a judge on a Saturday morning instead of a justice of the peace for a Saturday afternoon (meaning my cousin was working and couldn’t be there), continuing to the judge being in a hurry to get off and rushing us through the tunnel under the courthouse to his chambers, and concluding with one guest arriving just as we were leaving!

  175. I don’t have many family moments to share because I’m only 24. I’m not gonna sit here and make something up. My family has managed to stay strong though through very tough times. I started having severe seizures in 2011 suddenly and have them daily. My younger brother was recently diagnosed with a rare form of skin cancer. My only 2 nephews both were diagnosed with autism this year. Somehow we have managed to stick together and keep strong and support each other. You can’t let family fall apart or feel alone when anyone is weak. I know this is supposed to be a post about the best times of your life and it comes off as a real negative one, but our best times were when we stood together when life got tough.
