Pumpkin patches + adorable kids – is there anything better? I think not. Definitely not.

Just look at that sweaty little man trying to pick up all

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,

 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

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

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

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
