Hi friend! How’s your week going? I feel like I’m starting to get acclimated to our new home, but it’s still all so new and not as familiar as our old house. It takes some time to get used to where everything is and how it all works.
Hi friend! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to hit the ground running today! I’m heading home from a beautiful weekend in Mexico and I’m feeling very refreshed.
A few days away with my guy is just what the doctor ordered. We did a whole lot of lounging, sunning, and eating and it was glorious. I’ll be going through my Cozumel camera roll and bringing you a trip recap soon!
Now it’s back to reality and laundry and school and sports!
Hi friend! Welcome to a fresh, new week! And Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you feel the love and maybe even get a little something special to celebrate how wonderful you are. I have goodies ready for the kiddos and my mom, and I can’t wait to give Brian his gift tonight! We’re going to an early Italian dinner that I’ve been looking forward to for weeks!
Did you catch the Superbowl, or at least the commercials or halftime show? What did you think? I’m so bummed about our Bengals, but that’s how it goes sometimes.
Hi friend! Can you believe we’re at the end of August already? It’s crazy because September to December always seems to go so fast! But I’m really ready for this time of year. We could use some cooler temps, that’s for sure. But, Fall weather is always slow to make its way to Houston.
Today I have a round-up of Outfits Lately that hopefully inspires your own wardrobe. It’s easy for me to wear loungewear everyday since I work from home, but honestly, I’m so much more productive when I make the effort to put on an outfit!
Good morning friends! It’s fun, busy times here! It’s always nutty the week before going out of town trying to get all.the.things done and ready and packed and still work and workout! I’m happy the kids are enjoying time with their dad this week or I would have my hands double full! When they come home, we’re heading to Florida for a week! #cantwait!

Hi friends! I hope you are waking up feeling relaxed and refreshed! We had an easy night in watching movies and eating popcorn, which was the perfect end to a long week and a great way to start this long weekend!
I have relaxing by the pool, cooking/barbecuing, celebrating both of my brothers’ birthdays, and a couple of easy organization projects on the agenda that I wanted to share with you!
Hi friends! I hope your week is going amazing! I’m looking forward to a girls’ dinner tonight to celebrate our friend Elizabeth’s birthday. She is one of the funniest people I know, so it’s always a blast getting to see her.
And we’re having glorious coolish weather, perfect for an evening outdoors! Thursday is normally date night, but Brian has a client dinner tonight, so it worked out. I do appreciate that he made the effort to see me for lunch yesterday instead! Sooo sweet!
Are there wedding bells in any of your futures?! Have a summer wedding or shindig to attend? If so, this post is for you! I’ve got beautiful dresses you will feel like a million bucks in!
And for anyone curious, I don’t have any plans to get married anytime soon. When you’ve been happily dating someone for over a year, people inevitably wonder whether you will be getting hitched. I’m so happy in my relationship and it’s going great, so that there aren’t any plans to change it. We’ve both been married before and have kids, so there’s a lot of experience and hearts to consider.
Hi friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! I had a productive Monday, which always feels great. My workout was just what I needed and I’m so thankful that I’ve been getting lots of good sleep lately. Maybe because I’ve gotten Jordan back into her own bed.
And I’m working on going to sleep earlier, so I wake up feeling rested. It’s incredible how much your mood and energy improves when you’re giving your body the rest it needs.
How cute is this sunshine yellow midi dress?! I feel like it would be perfect for upcoming Mother’s Day.
Hi friends! How was your weekend? We’ve been enjoying the most beautiful weather here in Houston. It’s been sunny and warm, not too hot with a bit of a breeze. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear we were in California – land of no humidity. #jealous We know the swamplike temps will be here soon, so this kind of weather makes us all want to get outside.
We had a backyard crawfish boil for my nephew’s third birthday on Saturday and I also took the kids to the park both days. We walked (James biked) for extra exercise.
Hi friends! Happy Friday! Thank you so much for all the sweet comments on our Mexico trip recap! Writing the post and looking at the photos makes me excited to go back! We have some couple friends we think would be fun to go with next time. 🙂
Hi friends! The best thing about a long weekend is a short week! The kids were off school on Monday, and it’s almost the weekend again!
Today, I’m excited to get a haircut. I was growing it longer for awhile, but I’m ready to chop off a couple inches again and maybe bring my bangs up a little. I think it will suit me better for summer and just be easier to take care of and style. And I’m all about simplicity these days.
Do you prefer long or short hair? I always envy those girls with gorgeous long hair,
When it comes to packing for Spring Break, how hard can it be?? If you’re heading somewhere warm, all you need is a swimsuit, jeans shorts, and flip flops, right?! Well, maybe a little more than that! We’re doing an impromptu two-day getaway and when I started packing, I realized I have a few essentials I’ll definitely be bringing with me.
I referred to the “Vacay Packing List” I created several years ago for reference, and since it was handy, I’m including it for you here. It’s an exhaustive list, but helpful so you don’t forget anything!
Hi friends! How was your weekend? Did you watch the Harry and Meghan interview? I would have, but #nocable. What did you think??
Yesterday, I laid down on the couch for a 30 minute catnap, and two hours later, I was still horizontal! I guess I really needed the rest!
On Saturday, we found out our friend Tarah and her hubby are having a GIRL! At our age, having a new baby in the friend group is so fun for all of us girlfriends. This is gonna be one little baby that has a lot of aunties spoiling her!
Hi friends and Happy Friday! I’m coming to you from a much lighter and brighter home! Ruben came over with his crew yesterday and painted the exterior of our home! There were some changes along the way, but it looks so much better!
I’m giddy over how it turned out! I’ll be sure to do a post for you here soon, but in the meantime, you can check it out LIVE on Stories saved to my “Paint” highlight!
Hi friends! How was your weekend? We had a really nice one, and even got a brief reprieve from our blazing hot temps with an unexpected rain shower on Friday. It definitely slowed things down and was a lovely way to kick off the weekend! On Sunday, I invited two of my girlfriend over for lasagna and salad and wine and lots of girl talk and laughs. I’m so thankful for my girlfriends and I definitely haven’t gotten to spend as much time with them lately as I’d like to. The face-to-face time was so good!
Today, I have several new styles to share with you,
