NYC Trip – Part One

Last week, we got back from the most fun trip to upstate New York and NYCity. My cousin got married just outside of Queensbury, NY, so we decided to make a week out of it. There’s so many pictures I’m splitting it up into two posts – Upstate NY portion, and then “the city.” Picture overload coming your way! We left Dallas early Thursday…

Five on Friday – Friday Favorites

After taking a two week hiatus – I’m back at it for Five on Friday and Friday Favorites. We’ve been gone for the last seven days, so the fact that today is Friday is blowing my mind.  Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that today is the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (unless you have the credit card, and you could…

Our Weekend – Birthday Party Style!

We had the best weekend celebrating a couple of friends’ birthdays. At this point in our life, we have A LOT of birthday parties – and I don’t see it slowing down any time soon. Which is just fine. We have so much fun, and it’s a good excuse for the parents to hang out, too. I’m gonna be real sad when we reach…

Five on Friday – Friday Favorites

Because this week has really been a blur, we’ve had zero favorite things and zero happenings other than July 4th. When Monday is a holiday, you take off Tuesday to travel back home, you are really thrown off Wednesday morning, and you for sure don’t think Friday is Friday. Hallelujah to getting back to normal next week. SOOOO – Since I’ve been summering it…

Family Fun on the Fourth!

Y’all we had the best Fourth!!  Super hot, but super fun! Every year, for the most part, we head to Rotan for the 4th. In earlier years, MDub played in the annual softball tournament, but then he got old, and now it’s not worth all the soreness for the next week. So, he played golf for two days and had a mini heat stroke…

Framily Vacation…..Round 2

It’s no secret we love going on vacation trips with our friends and their kids. This past weekend was round two for the summer. Some of the same friends as the Padre Trip, but this was Marcus’ high school friends that he still talks to every day. Twelve adults and 10 kids this time, and we all had a blast. The kids range in…

Five on Friday – Friday Favorites!

Y’all it’s been the best week!!  Summer school, swim lessons, and a weekend ahead of us at the lake – hallelujah! Although, I can’t believe June is almost gone. Where is the summer going? This is the first week for us that’s really felt like summer – a hot, hot summer! ONE: Summer School…. woohoo, we waited 30 long days for you! We’ve been…

Our Weekend – Father’s Day 2016

We had the best weekend! Absolutely no plans other than a little splash park and pool fun. Y’all, it’s HOT. Is it worse this year, or am I just getting older and can’t deal? Either way, you will find us in the water for the next three months, if you’re looking! On Friday, we met Mdub after work so that he and PB could…

E-Design Neutral Nursery

If you remember, way back, almost a year now, I did an E-Design for my sister in law that was pregnant with her THIRD boy. Yes, her third, so this needed to be a sweet baby boy nursery using both his big brothers’ furniture. I really just put something together that was partly my brother, yet simple and chic enough for my SIL.  Remember…
