Weekend Recap: Ritual Houston + Citrus Balsamic Marinade + Downtown Tomball

Ritual Houston

Jon Boy and I FINALLY got a date night “in town” after a YEAR of living here in Houston. WHEW! Every single time we’ve scheduled a date night that involved coming in town to a new, trendy restaurant, something terrible would happen. Someone was sick, our dog was dying, someone died in the family, work

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

Scenes from the Weekend

We got such a great surprise this week! Our “Aunt Mo” [my bestie] came to visit on a whim! We got to hang out with her Thursday night, then we headed out to shop on Friday morning. Corey’s kind of in love with her… [also notice those two skinned knees – hello all boy!] For

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

Charleston – Take 4 + 5

I love these dunes. I don’t know why. They’re just grass and funky fences really, but they’re just so pretty! They remind me of all of Nicholas Sparks’s novels [but without the tears]. [and yes, that apostrophe “s” is correct… don’t make me go Grammar Nazi on you…] We slept in super late [again] and

Charleston – Take 3

Day 3 was a busy, busy, busy and FUN day in Charleston! We started the day by running [cough* I walked *cough] on the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge near our hotel. Jon actually ran the whole 2 1/2 miles one-way and walked back with me the rest. Let’s just say I got to the highest

Charleston – Take 2

Day 2 is in the books! Charleston did not disappoint by any means on our second day here. We slept in super late (because hello… no toddler + no schedule = parents sleeping in well past an acceptable time). Once we were ready to go (around noon, my friends… NOON), we headed out to Palmetto

Charleston – Take 1

charleston travel

Our anniversary trip is off to an AMAZING start! We’ve been looking forward to coming to Charleston for (no kidding) almost three years now. It’s been a dream vacation of ours because of the FOOD (for me) and the BEACH (for Jon Boy). I can’t believe we’ve been married for five years already, but celebrating

The Republic Grille

Jon Boy had a date night a while back [thanks to my fab sister-in-law!], and I have to say, it was hands-down one of the BEST restaurants we’ve ever been to! It’s called The Republic Grille. They have two locations in the Woodlands, so we went to the one on the west side because it’s

Good Food, Good People, Good Times

Good Food, Good People, Good Times

We had such a great weekend. It was filled with good food, good people, [good drinks], and good times! It was a great change from the chaos of the past few weeks. I even had time to try a selfie. You can see how enthused Penny was about my attempts… Β It started Thursday with a
