This picture sums up our weekend perfectly: busy + havin’ fun being busy! We took a trip to Dallas to see friends and family for a little backyard BBQ. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again. Thank you, Car Gods, for the gift of the DVD player. I’m not saying that I love

Loving Lately

outfit

I’ve had some luck with the necessities lately: anti-frizz cream for your hair, perfect leggings, and an absolutely perfect necklace. Oh, and the Mom Uniform. That’s been on repeat lately. Allow me to break it all down for ya. Houston. I love you for your baseball, BBQ, and backyard lounging. I loathe you with a

Weekend Whereabouts

pumpkin patch

This weekend was the epitome of fall: cool weather, football, baseball playoffs (GO ASTROS), pumpkin patches, food, family, and friends. I have to be honest. Ever since we’ve moved to Houston, our new home just hasn’t felt as much like our home as our house in Dallas did. This weekend changed all of that. Nothing

Friday Fall Favorites

Pumpkin patches + adorable kids – is there anything better? I think not. Definitely not. Corey’s school puts on the most adorable pumpkin patch every year with themed pumpkin displays, a slide made out of hay, and even a bicycle ride. It’s adorable! Just look at that sweaty little man trying to pick up all

Crock Pot Shredded Chicken + Thursday Randoms

crock pot shredded chicken

Eh hem. You see this mess? DO you SEE this mess? This would be my little angel baby dumping his plate and throwing the unwanted (green peas) bits onto the floor so that Penny would eat it all up for him. Real cute. Y’all to be real, ever since Corey started his preschool twice a

Transition Time: Summer to Fall

Caslon Utility Vest

Now that fall is here, (and yes, it IS here, buddy), I’m super excited to transition my wardrobe from bikinis + shorts to jeans + layering! By the way, trying to wear jeans in Houston in the summer should be rewarded with a medal of honor. It’s ridiculously difficult to get in them, stay in them,

Friday Funday: My Wish List + My Wish NOT List

doozies

 Not surprisingly, I’ve had my eye on some pretty things for fall. While browsing the good old Nordstrom, I also found some serious doozies. If I need some fashion schooling, let me know. I just don’t get some of these things that people make and/or buy. I want to go back to school if only

Chicken + Dumplings & A Little Life Lately

chicken and dumplings

If you’re like me, when you hear Chicken + Dumplings, you think of the elementary cafeteria and the ‘mystery’ that would be slopped onto your plate and called Chicken + Dumplings. I had some friends who LIVED for Chicken + Dumpling Day. I was NOT one of those people. I dreaded that day. The soggy

Weekend Recap

This weekend was a great change of pace for us. Things have been a little hairy these days with work stress and the like. You know – life. No biggie. We still had a great time with friends and family. Big Man and I took a trip to our local library to play around and

Life Lately + A New Book Rec

life lately

Whew! What a week we’ve had so far. Corey’s getting over some bad allergies + rotavirus (grossest freaking thing ever), so we’ve been in the house A LOT this week. I’ve been trying to contain the germs and clean as much as I can. I’ve also been trying not to go insane because I’ve been
