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!”

New Home New Struggles

Lest I sound ungrateful I want you to know that my husband and I feel super lucky to have found a house during this crazy time in the housing market. We had to move super quick on our house and bid above other people in order to get our home. We know to even buyContinue reading “New Home New Struggles”

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”

Times are a Changing

I have been shamefully quiet this past week. The hubby and I have been juggling a lot of balls in the air these last few weeks. One of the big changes that we have been dealing with is selling our house! It is very exciting! Anyone who has moved knows how much work is involved.Continue reading “Times are a Changing”

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!”

Newest Additions

Please welcome the newest additions to my flower family! All bee and butterfly pollinator plants. I couldn’t help but be(e) drawn to the purple flowers in particular (although I did allow the hubby one choice 😉). To me it is important to find plants that are a source of food for bees. They help toContinue reading “Newest Additions”

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”

Graduation Parade

Speaking with our neighbor yesterday, she told us about a car parade that was about to happen for the local high school. What a great idea! Graduation is happening this weekend and next for many of the high schools in the Austin area. As a way to celebrate and cheer on the Seniors, they decidedContinue reading “Graduation Parade”

Happy Birthday Hubby!

A few days ago was the birthday of my true love ❤️ . The man who puts up with my craziness and makes me laugh. In our short marriage we have already been through ups and downs, and he has been supportive and a positive influence throughout. Every day spent together is another day IContinue reading “Happy Birthday Hubby!”

Spring Cleaning

Ugh. Cleaning. Does that explain how I feel? It has to be done and it always feels good afterwards, but man I hate it! Cleaning is fine, but deep cleaning is a bummer. Wiping down baseboards and moving furniture is hard work! I’ll be honest, I’ve never exactly been Donna Reed ( the model ofContinue reading “Spring Cleaning”
