Last weekend we celebrated Jaxon’s 2nd birthday party and I honestly will never understand where the time is going. I swear now that he is here I feel like every time I blink my eye another year has flown by and the baby blues are starting to hit me.Read More
If I am being utterly and completely honest, this year was like fitting 5 years of growth into one year and it was fucking brutal.
I feel like this was one of those year's that prepares you for the best years of your life. You appreciate things more after struggle, and loss. You bend when you should've broke and you get back up.
Something great is coming, I can feel it. I don’t know what it is but it is going to be good.Read More
I have been doing a lot of work on “me” this year because an incredibly shitty situation left me feeling sorry for myself and I needed to get out of feeling this way. I have never wanted to be one of those people who felt sorry for themselves, I have always wanted to be a strong independent woman because I was raised that way.Read More
A few months ago, I lost my dog and it made me start re-thinking a lot of things. He meant a lot to me and I just realized how much time I didn't spend with him before he was gone because I was too busy during nap time trying to film a makeup video, or photograph an outfit.Read More
I feel like every single time I write these post it is all about how fast time is flying. I feel like it was yesterday when it was getting closer to me having to go back to work I literally had a breakdown, if I would’ve known then that it was the “baby blues”. I wouldn’t have felt so bad about being in that emotional space .Read More
This past weekend I was able to attend the Toast and Twirl Workshop with ToastfromtheHost [Lauren Banzu] it was held at the Aris at Market Square and if you are looking for downtown living I can totally recommend visiting this place to keep in the running.
It was so much fun, we did a bunch of DIY's which oddly enough I like to do. I saw some of my other blogger friends and I had just a good time being out with adults.Read More
And there it was the moment when he laid there watching me intently as I removed all of the gunk from the barrel of the vacuum cleaner brush, wide eyed and bushy tailed as though it was the newest, coolest cartoon on the block. It was in that moment that I realized this kid, this little miracle of ours was going to be something big.
There are many things that J has of mine, my temper, my impatience, my knack for the dramatics, but what he has of his daddy's is the willingness to learn, the patience to figure it out, and the ability to shoot you a smile and flirtatious look that will have you weak in the knees.Read More
You never realize how much being close to the ocean can make you feel relaxed regardless of if you never actually get in the water.
I normally take day trips to Galveston to meet a couple of girlfriends up for business talks and food. It is nice to be close to the water, enjoy some alone time and get a bit inspired at times.Read More
After everything that was going on in my personal life, I definitely needed a break from everything. I wish I could’ve fit in a vacation from life but with a family that is not something that you can do.
Instead, I took a step back from my blog and a little bit of social media and it helped tremendously. I also took a refreshing instagram class from my dear friend Stacy Anderson that helped me feel much better about the path about this blog.Read More
On June 10th, we lost my grandmother and while she lived a long life passing at the ripe age of 81, no loss is ever easy. The last couple months for her were filled with pain and surgeries, until she was brought home where she could get some comfort from pain medication, and family & friends.
I am not the greatest at loss, I am awkward to say the least with affection as it is growing up in a family who rarely says I love you, or hugs one another.Read More
These past couple of weeks I have had less time to play with make up or get dressed up and take pictures of myself, so this weeks blog post have been more of the emotional side of things.
I am still trying to figure out what works for me with this blog and what doesn't. If you have opinions on the matter I am open to hear about them.
If you read my post earlier this week you are well aware that Mother's Day didn't go as smoothly as one would hope. You can read more of it here.Read More
Mother's Day was great!
My attitude on the other hand not so much.
If you saw my instagram post on this topic then you know exactly what I am talking about.
So my Mother's Day fail started on Saturday evening and apparently I was on a roll and wanted it to last the entire weekend, E came home with my gift and I was like nope, I don't want that. Then to top it off I decided to have an attitude that E decided to leave the house to do a little work for his regular job on Sunday morning. Now this I am still a little upset about and feel as though my feelings are in the right to an extent, but I am going to put my pride and attitude aside and be thankful and grateful that our finances and lives are being handled.Read More
