A Virtual Birthday At Neon Noir

For the misters birthday I always try to find something adventurous to do. This year was no different. He had been talking about buying a PlayStation VR console (so ‘spensive). After looking at some reviews, I decided it might be a better idea to test drive the VR experience to see if it was even something worth investing in. Not only did we find a fun new way to hang out, we had a blast test driving our beginner stage VR skills.

Neon Noir is owned by Micah, a real chill super gamer that walks you every step of the way in the gaming process. When we first arrived, we went straight to a room and got the virtual walk through.

What’s really great is Micah let’s you own the experience. Once you’re in the VR world he hops in and guides you, but really allows you freedom to have fun and explore.

There are several level one games that we both got to play. My favorite game was an “Angry Birds” type experience where you catapult orbs into stacked boxes in a warehouse to destroy stuff and cause damage. The goal is to cause the largest amount of dollar destruction resulting in your firing 😂. BEST. GAME. EVER.

Hubby really enjoyed what we are going to call “The Spaceship Game” because we can’t remember the actual name. It’s basically like Galaxian, but a much more hyped up virtual version. You have a little space ship and the goal is to not get hit while destroying the enemy. Personally this game got me exercising due to the physical squatting, ducking, and ninja moves you have to preform in order to avoid getting hit lol!

We both left the gaming experience already planning our next visit. It’s a really chill local spot and Micah is really nice and easy to work with. It’s also BYOB! So next time you’re in town and looking for something new to try, definitely add this to your list. You won’t be sorry!

A Vacation For The Record

When I think of vacation, I think of blue skies, a nice sandy beach, warm ocean water, and of course this year for our first family vacation, I had thoughts of us being in optimal health to enjoy all that lovely weather.

Well…(and I’m sure it won’t look like it from all the following pictures) the last thing on my mind was being sick on vacation, but that’s exactly what happened. Our first family vacation and it was full of runny noses, sneezing, coughing, sore throats, and basically fighting to enjoy all the good that comes with taking a much needed break.

I’m not talking about just myself. We were all sick wit’ it. However, we still managed to have fun at the end of the day.

Hot Box Biscuit Club


I’ve always wanted to attend a pop up restaurant. I see them in movies and modern tv shows but I can never figure out where the heck these places actually exist! Well thanks to awesome chefs like Sarah and Matt that managed several successful pop ups I now have access to a local foodie first for me. Continue reading “Hot Box Biscuit Club”

Officially A Mom

It has finally hit me…I’m a mom!

Even though we’ve had our daughter for 7 weeks, up until this point it’s been an awkward getting to know you phase. When we brought her home from the birthing center, it was just so surreal. I knew she came out of me but I just still couldn’t believe she was actually out of me. One minute she’s tucked away safe in my belly, the next she’s screaming and crying bloody murder as she is being wrapped like a burrito in swaddling cloths. Continue reading “Officially A Mom”

Brinley’s Birth Story 


I went into early labor at 11:30pm 8/29/17. At the time our Houston refugee cousins had just left and we were settling down for the night. I felt crampy but with a different twinge of pain so I ignored it until I could confirm they weren’t going away. At 3:30 that morning I had begun to lose my plug so RJ and I were extremely excited that things were getting underway. The next day during active labor we notified our birthing team so they could head over to the house and help us through. Continue reading “Brinley’s Birth Story “
