I had no idea what to expect because my husband can sometimes be notorious for super secret surprises and this year was no different. Join in on the adventures of the evening.

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”

Officially Home Owners

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…

Title Boxing At Athleta Dallas

penultimatefullsizerender-11Among the typical workouts that I enjoy like weight training and yoga, every once in a while I like to kick things up a notch.

Labor Day Weekend Treehouse Staycation

penultimatefullsizerender-1

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.

An Evening With Terry Bozzio

PenultimateFullSizeRenderHave 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).
