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”
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 “
One of the fun things about prepping for a kid is coming up with a nursery theme. I must admit, I already know I’m not a traditional style mom; mostly because I’m not a traditional style person. I don’t like a lot of fluff and I knew I wanted our daughters room to resemble bold color, mod design, and minimalist tastes rather than some of the nurseries I have seen (not that that’s bad, I just like different style).

So while I was out, date nights with the hubs certainly didn’t stop. There was one in particular that stood out among the rest and it was at Si Na Ca Studios off Magnolia in Fort Worth. This place is a studio dedicated to glass blowing! Continue reading “Si Na Ca Studios: A Hot Date For Two”
Oh. My. Goodness!!!! I haven’t blogged in forever and I must say I genuinely miss writing. It has been entirely too long since I’ve mentioned a food post, a fashion post, or an adventurous post….and I’ve been hearing it from all sides too lol! I had to wait until I could be consistent so for the last few months I’ve been collecting photos in hopes of catching the blog back up. Now I believe it’s FINALLY time.
One thing the hubs and I cannot deny, is the constant work God does to bring things to fruition in our lives. That is no different for us in the search and purchase of our first house. If anyone has doubts that God isn’t very present in daily affairs, hear our testimony of how we came to own our home…
Among the typical workouts that I enjoy like weight training and yoga, every once in a while I like to kick things up a notch. The perfect opportunity came up this weekend as my best friend invited me and my cousin to a boxing class at Athleta Dallas. Continue reading “Title Boxing At Athleta Dallas”
When I was a kid, we lived right next to a heavily wooded area. It would have been nice to have a treehouse, but seeing as how my dad was determined to keep us on the ground, we never got one lol. Since then, I could only imagine what it would be like to own a treehouse. Shows like Treehouse Masters peaked my interest and left me wishing on a star, so when I found out there were such things as treehouse cabins in New Braunfels I was all over it.
Have you seen Whiplash? No? Well it’s a movie that is about a young college kid pursuing his dream of becoming a legendary percussionist (I highly recommend). At the end of the film, this kid gives the performance of his life! Totally rocks it out on his drum kit. My hubby and I love the movie so much that this weekend we were inspired to go see a drum performance by one Terry Bozzio (pictured above).
