What’s Up Wednesday

red oak tree houston

This week has been all about making comfort food, nursing a sick baby boy, watching trees grow, and getting ready for baby boy’s second birthday! <– That’s an exclamation full of emotion, folks. I’m so proud of the adorable bundle of sugar my baby boy has become at two. I’m also completely devastated that two years

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

Aggieland Weekend

Jon Boy and I finally snuck out of the house [sans the toddler] to head back to our Alma Mater: the one and only TEXAS A&M! One of his clients has season tickets, so we scored tickets to the A&M vs. Auburn game for face value. I’m not gonna lie, the game was pretty brutal.

THE PIONEER WOMAN – aka My New BFF! – Plus a Restaurant Rec: Dish Society

Say whhhaaatttt!!! This past Thursday night was the night of dreeaaammmmss! I can’t even describe how emotionally exhausted I was at the end of the whole shabang (at a whopping 9:04 PM, thank you). Jon Boy surprised me with tickets to Pioneer Woman’s book signing for her new cookbook, Come and Get It! The whole day he

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

Guess who’s excited that the AAASSSTTTRRROOOOOSSS have made the playoffs? I swear this kid is their Fan Numero Uno. His adorable hat is too big for him, but it’s by far his favorite item of clothing. This little guy will sit down and watch the game along with than any other big-bellied fella around. He’s

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

Life Lately

We’ve kept it pretty low key the past week plus since this poor guy has had a tummy virus. Obviously, it’s not getting in the way of his mood or his appetite, though! I sure do love dem cheekies! Also… no one mentioned “stool samples” whenever I signed up to be a Mama. Gross. I’m

Chicken with Cream of Mushroom + Worcestershire and Scenes from the Weekend

chicken in cream of mushroom

I’ve posted this recipe before, but I had to share it again because it’s one of our go-to dinners when we’re hungry but don’t wanna cook (like last Saturday night). This was one of my Daddy’s favorite things to throw together on a weeknight after work and school. I love how food memories are some

UBiome – A Gut Study

uBiome testimonial

There’s no other way to say it: I had my poop analyzed. Thaaaaaaat’s right. My poop. Or really, my gut. My GI-physician-of-a-Grandpa is smiling down at me right now. You see, my family has a horrible history of colon cancer (both my dad + grandpa had it) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Both things relating to my
