March Rewind & Top Sellers

Hi friends!  I’m so happy to be taking a breather in Mexico with my wonderful boyfriend!  Sometimes I pinch myself that I even have a “boyfriend”, since it kinda makes me feel like a teenager to say that!

It’s also EASTER weekend!  Do y’all have any fun plans?  I’ll be celebrating with my kiddos when I get back and their baskets are already ready and waiting and I’m certain the Easter bunny will have hidden eggs by the time I get back too!

Hi friends!  Welcome to a fresh, new week and a brand new month!  February held the promise lots of wonderful things – a trip to Mexico, Valentine’s Day, both mine and Jordan’s birthday, but we ended up having to reschedule the trip and had a terrible winter storm that seemed to overshadow everything.

We are beyond grateful to have escaped with no long-term damage and just a few days without water/power/heat.  I just realized this weekend that I had a busted pipe, but it’s nothing terrible.

I’m happy to put that chapter behind us and move onto March.

Hi friends and happy weekend!  I’m less than one week out from a Mexico getaway with Brian!  I’m pinching myself that we’re even going!  I can’t help but think back to when I was going through my divorce compared to where I am now emotionally and it feels like a lifetime ago.  In 2019, I really never dreamed that in two years, I’d have a wonderful man in my life and we’d be going on vacation!

Let me remind you of one of my favorite sayings, “If you’re going through hell, keep going!”

Hi friends! Happy Friday!  Can you believe Halloween is tomorrow?  Are you doing anything fun?  Our school is foregoing the annual costume party where parents could attend and it makes me so sad!  Some of the kids in our school are SO creative with their costumes and its aways so fun to see everyone dressed up.  The kids still get to dress up and have a classroom party, we just can’t attend.  :(They’ll go to a friends’ house for Halloween and I know they will have a blast!

I had a super fun date night last night.  We went to another couples’

Hi friends!  Welcome back to my blog and welcome OCTOBER!  Did you think we’d never get towards the end of this year?  Well, I can tell you, my kids are already counting the days until Christmas and I don’t blame them!  I LOVE this time of year!

The weather in Houston has taken a glorious turn from high 90s and so.freaking.humid to bright, crisp and cool.  It’s put all of our city in the best mood!  And just one more day ’til the weekend!  Things are lookin’ good friend!

SEPTEMBER REWIND

It’s time to take a peek back at last month and recap all.the.things.

Hi friends! Can you believe we’re in September finally?!?!  It felt like it would never get here, 2020 has been a million months long!  Since my kids will be going back to school this month, it really feels like the first fresh start I’ve had in awhile.  And I love a new beginning!

I’m so pumped to start our free 30-day fitness challenge today! I hope you are too!  I know it takes time to see results, but consistency is the key, and if you stick with it, you WILL see changes!  It typically takes me two weeks to start really feeling better and six weeks seems to be a sweet spot for starting to look really good!

Wow! Can you believe we’re already into July?!  This summer has been one I’m sure we’ll never forget! Are y’all doing anything for the 4th this weekend?  We don’t have any plans, we’ll just be laying low and hanging out.  Kinda like every other day!  Right?!

May Rewind & Coming Together

Good morning friends!  I don’t often miss a Monday post, but with everything going on over the weekend, my heart was heavy and I found it difficult to focus.  I saw the pain and anger in so many faces and it’s devastating to realize what’s underneath all that emotion.

My heart goes out to everyone who has experienced racial inequality and unfair and hateful treatment based solely on the color of their skin.  It’s 100% not right and I will be so much more aware of how I act, respond and raise my family.  I want to be part of the solution and I know I can do better.

Good morning friends! We’re almost to Friday, which is always a good thing!  How’s your week been? It’s been confusing here with our stay-at-home order being lifted May 1 and then I read it’s being put back in place until May 20.  But then, salons are opening Friday. Restaurants can open at 25% capacity.

Regardless, not much has changed in our world. We’re still staying home except for essentials like groceries.  And even then, I’m wearing a mask, so it doesn’t really feel like things have returned to “normal”.

I am hopeful that we’ll be able to get ahead of this virus and be able to live more of our regular lives with friends and family in the near future.

Easter Online | March Best Sellers & Rewind

Hello friends!  Yesterday kicked off a brand new month, and I have officially decided it’s time to ACCEPT my new normal, instead of resisting it. Like we were talking about yesterday, I had to stop and pause to take everything in. So much of our normal daily life has been interrupted, so it takes time to wrap your head around it and process the change.

Now, I’m choosing to EMBRACE this time and am learning how to adjust.  Like anyone who has young kids at home, it’s been really challenging for me to work and also to know what I should be sharing.

Good morning friends! What a week it has already been!  Actually the last month has been a whirlwind!  February was Valentine’s Day, followed four days later by Jordan’s birthday, then my own birthday two days after that!  Then, we celebrated James’ birthday yesterday!  It’s a lot crammed into just a few weeks!  And at this age, things are double or triple with classroom parties, home parties and then actual birthday day celebration.  I’m pooped!

Thankfully, this is also our last weekend where two sports overlap.  We’ve been going hard with basketball and baseball and basketball ends Saturday.  I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend!

Hi friends! Did you enjoy the Superbowl yesterday? We watched at a friend’s house with a small group of friends and kids.  It was so great- lots of yummy food and the kiddos running around in the backyard- half watching the game, half throwing the football.  Good old fashioned fun!

Then, during the halftime show, my friend’s mom came running into the house from the backyard shouting, “THERE’S A FIRE NEXT DOOR, CALL 911!”  We looked outside and could see the flames!  I ran and got my phone and called  911 while gathering the kids to get them safely out front away from the fire.

You guys! It’s 2020 tomorrow! Never in my life have I been so excited for the start of a new year!  How are you feeling about it?  Doesn’t it just feel extra special it being the start of a new decade?! I have a really good feeling about this year for all of us!

The kids and I are ringing in the new year with our friends and I’m making these mocktails for the kiddos.  I think they’ll get a kick out of them! They’re made with sparkling grape juice and gummy worms/bears.

Hi friends! I hope you are sufficiently caffeinated for this post because it’s a long one!  If you need to go make yourself a fresh cup of coffee first, I’ll wait!

That’s better!

Hi friends! Happy Halloween!  I’m sending a darling pumpkin and Paul McCartney to school today, then will be back later for the costume contest and class parties.  The kids at our school go all out on costumes and it always blows me away at how creative and cool they are.  I’ll try to share some on Stories!

I cannot believe we are already at the end of October and it has been a whirlwind.  October was the first full month that my divorce was final.  I thought I had grown and been through a lot last year,

Good morning Monday!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  Mine was really good.  We kept it low key while taking a break from Instagram and Stories to be with friends on Friday night and then celebrate my Dad’s birthday with my family on Saturday.  Sunday was a much needed day of rest!  I did some Fall decorating and I can’t wait to show you that soon!

Now I’m thinking, how in the world is it October tomorrow?!   Fall and the upcoming holiday season are always times I look forward to and enjoy so much. I know the holidays will look a little different this year than it has in the past,
