September Loves Giveaway!

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!

It’s been a fun week on the blog! If you missed it, check out Tuesday Goodies (full of simple things I use all the time!),

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!

Hi friends! It’s just a hop, skip and a jump away from the weekend now!  I feel like this week is flying by! I’m excited because I have a hair appointment today, and it always feels good to get a fresh cut and color.  I’ve found that 4 months is the sweet spot for my color now.  It keeps my hair bright, but also gives it a little break from coloring.

I go to my friend Shelby at Vintage Park Salon in Spring now and she does a great job!  I highly recommend her!

Good morning friend, welcome to a brand new week!  We had such a nice weekend, spending time with my little brother and his family.  We took the kids to the park and it was so fun, just being together outside, enjoying the weather and getting my son off electronics.  It’s a never ending battle I swear!

Did you catch my surprise Sunday post?!  So many good deals still to be had, and gifts for the whole family!

Hello friends!  I hope you enjoyed the long weekend!  Mine was really good, ending with a birthday celebration for my mom at my house.  It’s been too long since my family has been over and it was the BEST being with them, just hanging out.   The kids played, my little brothers grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and we drank mimosas!

Those simple, easy get togethers where everyone is relaxed and comfortable are my favorite. I’m really close with my brothers (I’m the oldest and they are 6 and 12 years younger than me!) It’s awesome to get all of our kids together –

Good morning friends! I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend!  Ours was really low key.  We chilled, did chores around the house, ate blue cake with sprinkles for 4th of July and watched movies.  Basically, a really slow and somewhat productive weekend.

Hi friends and welcome to a brand new week!  I’m so thankful for our slow weekend and time to just chill and be together as a family.  We got to go to the pool over the weekend!  We had to make a reservation and they are only allowing a certain number of people at a time, but we really enjoyed it.  We went early so there weren’t very many people there, which is so unusual for this time of year.  It’s typically packed and you can barely find a seat!

Hi friends!  I can’t believe we’re already to Friday! This was one of those weeks where I kept getting confused on what day it was.  Are you having days like that too?  Do you have plans for Mother’s Day?  Ours will be low key at home and I hope my Mom comes over!

I’m still mindful to those of you for whom Mother’s Day is difficult for any number of reasons.  My heart goes out to you and I’m sending you so much love.

Maybe a little GIVEAWAY will sprinkle some sunshine into your day today!

Hello friends! Welcome to a brand new week!  How was your weekend?  We took it really slow and it was lovely.  Over the past few weeks, I’ve been decluttering and cleaning places in our home that haven’t gotten much attention.  It’s been so nice to spruce up the backyard, wipe down the table and chairs, clean up the grill, spray down the patio and watch the Star Jasmine bloom along the back fence.

We had several days of really nice weather, so we colored Easter eggs outside.  It was definitely fun to wake up on Easter morning and have Jordan come running into my room so excited to see the eggs lining the hallway!
