Birthdays, Mardi Gras Balls, and Sky Falls

Oh how much I love a good hiatus! Enjoying these pauses and waiting to blog until I have something to say has truly made life MUCH simpler. For the last half of the month of January it’s been busy, busy, busy. I feel like I’m in my 20s 😅 Haha, jk, but 2023 sure has spun into a different gear. Let’s get into it 😊

10 Years And Counting…

Every year me and the hubs make an intentional attempt to celebrate our anniversary. We usually go on a trip with just the two of us to have some alone time and enjoy the memories of another year of marriage. This was our 10 year milestone and though it had been a pretty challenging year up to the point we got to vacation, it didn’t stop us one bit. Care to hear all about it?

A Very Merry Medieval Birthday

Every year for my birthday since I’ve been an adult, I’ve tried to celebrate it as much as humanly possible. I didn’t celebrate birthday’s growing up so I consider my special day as making up for lost time. I’ve generally enjoyed the medieval era as a kid. Whenever I would see the Medieval Times commercials I would tell myself, one day I’m going! And for my birthday this year, that’s just what we did!

2022 Family Vacation Austin TX

Busy, busy summer! It. Is. HOT! But not like the regular hot, I mean hot to the point people don’t even want to go outside let alone vacation. Still, we decided to brave that scorching heat and travel a couple hours away for a nice stay in Austin. Were we able to still have a fun time and not melt under the pressure???

Back It Up

Wow it’s been some months! I know I have a tendency to go offline, but to be fair, I really suck at being online because I don’t do it right. My bias for doing and documenting has eluded me. That’s why today is the day I’m going to down load my back log of adventures that have been sitting in my phone collecting figurative dust! Shall we?

Birth Story: Amariah Jai

Amariah’s birth actually starts 4 days before she came. On Sunday October 13th, I began to get something called Prodromal Labor Contractions. What are those you ask? Nature’s cruel joke is the best way I can put it. Basically, they are all the strength of real contractions, however, they don’t dilate the cervix significantly or at all. Sounds fun right?

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.
