My Pregnancy Journey

I mentioned that we tried hard to get pregnant but that doesn’t really describe our journey. Sam and I knew we wanted kids and due to my advancing age ( 37 at the time) we knew there was no time to waste. We tried on our own for six months which was what we wereContinue reading “My Pregnancy Journey”

Oh Baby, Baby!

I’m pregnant! I didn’t want to make an announcement until I hit the second trimester. To be honest, it is part of the reason that I haven’t written in a bit. Partially because it’s been hard for me to think/write about anything other than the baby, and partially because morning sickness had taken hold. ThoseContinue reading “Oh Baby, Baby!”

Goodbye and Hello

I apologize! It’s been quite a while my friends. Things have been a bit chaotic around here. The last time I wrote, it was about moving. We left the first home I ever owned. It has been exciting, but also a little sad. There’s something really nice and comforting about your first home. It servedContinue reading “Goodbye and Hello”

The State of TV Shows

Anyone lately look at their tv with both adoration and disgust? Let’s face it, we in America spend a lot of time with our butts on the couch watching tv. If you’re like me and the hubby, you play on your phone while watching television. It’s really quite horrible. We’re not just staring googley eyedContinue reading “The State of TV Shows”

San Antonio

Amazingly, San Antonio is only about 90 minutes away from where I live, and yet in the seven years I have lived in Texas, I have only been there twice. That includes this past weekend. The hubby’s sister and brother-in-law were in town for work so we took a short drive down to visit them.Continue reading “San Antonio”

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!

On the last day of my sister’s visit, we decided to go shoe shopping. Next to the shoe store was a running shop, so the hubby decided to tag along. Big mistake 😂. In the time that it took for Sam to buy two pairs of running sneakers, browse around REI and another store, myContinue reading “Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!”

Craft

There is a really cool place here in Austin called Craft. It is a crafter’s dream. All of the art supplies you could dream of and more, are super organized in large studio. The best part? You get to have fun, be creative, make a mess but don’t have to clean it up after!! TheContinue reading “Craft”

Family BBQ

Having my sister around is a perfect excuse to get together with even more family! A first cousin, once removed and her husband live on the opposite end of Austin from us, and another first cousin twice removed recently moved here. Got that? No? Neither did I. Here’s a chart: Whatever their relation to us,Continue reading “Family BBQ”

My Sister is here!

We’ve kept in touch over zoom, google hangouts, text and phone calls, but it has been about a year and a half since we’ve seen each other. Whoa! We’re keeping it a pretty chill week especially because of the heat right now, but it has been awesome to just hang out, chat and make funContinue reading “My Sister is here!”

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is an American holiday honoring fallen soldiers. It is a day of consideration and thankfulness to those who died fighting for our country. Regardless of whether you agree with the politics of your country or the wars that they are involved in, it is important to remember the people who gave their lives.Continue reading “Memorial Day”
