Halloween Recap

Where is the fall going?  I can't believe Halloween is already over and in three weeks we will be celebrating Thanksgiving! I love this time of year and just wish it would slow down a bit. Between visiting several pumpkin patches, preschool Halloween fun, and having fun with our neighbors on Halloween and Elle really getting the whole trick or treat concept down this year we had a great Halloween!

We went to several pumpkin patches with my favorite place being 45 mins from Austin.
Pumpkin Patch Memories
2011 in Arizona at 10 months & 2012 in Texas at 1 1/2 years old


2013 at 2 1/2 years old


2014 at 3 1/2 years old



Elle is also all about fairies and princesses. I really wanted her to be Elsa for Halloween so I could dress up as Anna but she wouldn't go for it. In her mind she was Silvermist.

It is so fun to see the magic of Holidays thru a childs eyes again.

Motherhood Mondays: My Weekend Away

Last weekend I flew to MN for a girls weekend. 
Was so much fun being able to spend time with these girls whom we all met when we pledged Delta Gamma 16 years ago. 

 wine tasting at an apple orchard. 
So many memories with this great group of ladies.

Whiny Whiny Rhino Book Tour Review

Today I am hosting a book tour review on Whiny Whiny Rhino illustrated and written by McBoop. This children's read is the perfect read to help instill confidence in a child who finds themselves worrying about trying new things or simply getting them to believe in themselves.

Whiny Whiny Rhino has two big brothers who can do it all and just can't seem to understand why Whiny Whiny Rhino is always so afraid to try new things. With lots of encouragement from his friends and Whiny Whiny Rhino always feeling tired of having "boring" days he finally works up the courage to have fun. But, just how he builds up his courage will have you laughing and cheering on little Whiny Whiny Rhino!


available to purchase here




Thank you to IRead Book Tours for this opportunity.

Sunday nights are meant for relaxing to live music 


Checking books out from the library and logging reading hours


Enjoying one of our favorite reads 

 Shopping with her sweet friend Miss C

Spent a week at dance camp! 

 Someone learned how to swim! 

Enjoying her first professional pedicure

 Making family memories at Lost Pines. We can't wait for our stay next summer!
 Building sandcastles like Fancy Nancy

 Hopscotch 

 Fell in love with fairies and was invited to feed the fish at our neighbors water garden center

 Wearing her first Lilly Pulitzer dress (becoming such a Southern Girl) and meeting her Preschool Teacher at open house. LOVES her teacher! Such a blessing this new school year is going way better than I could have ever imagined.

My closest said Thank You a few weeks ago when I scored this jacket on a great sale price.

I love these tee's. I own this t in 3 different colors. 

They are super soft and wash up really nicely.
