no plan days…

usually turn into days full of activity! This past weekend was no exception. I’m so blessed to be surrounded by great friends and family, my phone full of numbers for people I could call, knowing they’d be there for me in a second. I’m blessed to have friends who make me laugh, who cook great […]

beers and bachelorettes…

…not always a smart combination! This weekend was a whirlwind of patio dining, parties, competitions, dance-offs…and much more! I once again managed to exhaust myself, and have been bleary-eyed all morning, staring at my computer as if a Magic Eye poster should pop up as my screen saver. I’m hoping to see the hidden message […]

sun, fun and baby buns…

well, not so much buns…more like cute baby cheeks! This weekend was a bit of relaxing, hanging by the pool, sipping margaritas,  enjoying brunch with my man, and cooing over new pics of my little boo Jack…. not too shabby! Anyone living in Dallas needs to head over to La Fiorentina for some brunch STAT! […]

just keep swimming…and flying…and crawling…

This weekend was, well….different. What was supposed to be a weekend of rest, relaxation, and sleeping under the stars turned into rest, relaxation, and sleeping in my own bed…. so I guess it wasn’t too different… 😉 Actually, the gang was going to head out to Turner Falls, Oklahoma for our bi-annual camping trip. Dark […]

very groovy baby, yeahhh!

(Did you catch the Austin Powers reference??) This weekend was a whirlwind of fun, starting off with a wedding downtown for our friends, Sean Rae and Anna Anthony. The ceremony was at our church down in Dallas, while the reception was held at an old industrial warehouse style building down in South Dallas….the juxtaposition of […]

halloween hoopla and hullabaloo…

This weekend was another flurry of good family, good fun, good friends, and goooood food. We started off the weekend right by holding our Halloween party on Friday night. A few people in the group had a triathlon on Sunday, so rather than force them to limit their craziness at the party by hosting it […]

fotos, fairs, fried food and furry creatures…

This weekend was a whirlwind of fun activities, starting with some relaxing time at the Terrace on Friday night. The original plan was to have a bonfire/s’mores/whiskey gathering down at Lake Grapevine, but due to an unfortunate burn ban, as well as crowded camp sites, we moved la festa back home for a more relaxed […]

a race, a singalong, and snails…oh my!

This weekend my sis and BIL drove up from Austin for some much needed family time. I always love having them up here because it usually means good food, good wine, good shopping, and of course, good company. This weekend was no exception! The Race for the Cure was happening on Saturday, and since my mom’s school […]
