Hi friend!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for a fresh, new week!  We had a really lovely time with my family yesterday.

We had all kinds of yummy food including coffee cake, chocolate chip banana bread, blueberry muffins, kolaches, donuts, cookies, plus fruit and a meat and cheese tray.  And don’t forget the mimosas!

Hi friend! Can you believe we’re in May already?!  I spent a good part of Sunday morning planning out the month, plus our summer calendar.  School will be out in 3 1/2 weeks!  Kindergarten graduation!  #somanyemotions

But first, Brian and I went to our annual school Gala on Friday and had a really good time.  Over the last couple of years, he’s gotten to know my friends better, but it’s always nice to mingle the men and women together.  Plus, he made the perfect, handsome date!

Welcome to a brand new week!  I’m looking forward to getting my body moving again after what feels like a long hiatus from my favorite exercise classes.  I have been taking advantage of our beautiful weather and taking 30 minutes walks outside.  It doesn’t take long and it’s so good for you!

Today, I have a new Loves giveaway that I’m really excited about!

March Loves Giveaway

March Loves Giveaway

Hi friend! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  It’s our Spring Break here, but everyone is feeling lousy, so we’re just resting and laying low right now.

I’m so thankful that I got nearly everything unboxed and situated before I started feeling crummy.  There’s still lots of little things to do, but nothing urgent that can’t wait.

Hi friend!  Tonight is our Favorite Things Party and I’m so excited for it!  We had to do it virtually last year, so that makes it extra special this year!  It’s always so much fun to just get together with girlfriends (in jammies!) and eat, drink, talk, laugh, and of course, exchange gifts!

If you’re thinking of hosting your own favorite things party, or are just curious about how it works, go here.  I wrote a detailed description of how we do it and how we make it super easy!

THIS & THAT | Loves Giveaway, Family Photo Outfit Ideas & Columbus Day Sales

Hi friend!  It’s a day off for my kiddos from school and I could use one more day of weekend too!  This weekend was nonstop, starting with Jordan’s soccer game on Saturday morning, a trip to Target for things for the guest room, laundry, cleaning, and then baby shower prep for our friend Marianna!

The baby shower was at my house yesterday and was so fun and special.  Ali-Shaun did most of the heavy lifting and planned a thoughtful woodland themed shower with books as a specific gift for baby.  I’ll be sharing more on Stories today if you want to see how it came together.

Hi friend!  Happy Friday! I’m so excited to be coming to you from NYC!  I flew in to meet my boyfriend, Brian, yesterday and it is awesome to be in the city!  The weather is glorious and we had a fabulous dinner at Il Mulino Prime last night.  Brian said it was one of his favorite restaurants and now I can see why.  And it’s his birthday today!  We’re going to Balthazar to celebrate!

July Loves Giveaway

July Loves Giveaway

Hi friends!  I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July yesterday.  I ended up going fishing with Brian (a day late, but once I was sure I was feeling better) and it was really fun to get away.

The company camp is in Falfurrias, Texas, about a 4 hour drive from Houston and from there we went offshore fishing, ate, drank and enjoyed the company of about 10 other families.  I’ve only been offshore fishing one other time, many, many years ago, so it felt like the first time.  I had great beginner’s luck and caught the biggest fish on our boat!

Hi friends!  Welcome back to my blog and hello if you’re new!  I’m so glad you’re here!  I hope you had a wonderful long weekend.

One of our highlights was James and Jordan fishing for the very first time in the pond that backs up to Brian’s parent’s house.  The kids loved it and James caught three catfish!  How’s that for beginner’s luck?!  He was so stoked and now he can’t wait to go again!

We also celebrated my brother’s 40th birthday, hung out at the pool, made s’mores, and I even managed to squeeze in a workout yesterday.

Hi friends!  The kids are schooling from home today, so we’re planning to take advantage of our beautiful, warm weather and hit the pool this afternoon.  That will be a fun change of pace!  It’s been getting really warm in Houston, with random rain showers mixed in.  The weekend is looking really good though – mid 80s and sunny!
