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”

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!”

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!”

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 Mother’s Day!

It was bittersweet yesterday morning. I was lucky to celebrate Mother’s Day with my parents after a wonderful week that included my mom’s birthday, but sad when I had to drop them off at the airport. Yes I am an adult in my 30’s, but I still get a little choked up saying goodbye toContinue reading “Happy Mother’s Day!”

Spring Cleaning #2

Second round! Our ratty old IKEA couch that had been sitting on the landing was first to go. It was taking up space and was an eyesore that the cat had used as a scratching post. It had served its purpose well for over six years but it was time to go. We packed upContinue reading “Spring Cleaning #2”

If it Makes You Happy

Remember that song? By Sheryl Crow? Yeah I bet that gave you flashbacks to the 90’s, early 2000’s! It did for me too! I was listening to a playlist on Spotify when all of a sudden Sheryl came on and I started jamming out! All of a sudden I can’t stop listening to her. WasContinue reading “If it Makes You Happy”
