A Getaway Weekend - Galveston, TX

This last weekend Matt & I made a last minute decision to meet my aunt, cousin & his two sons in Galveston for the weekend.  I challenged myself to pack us all 3 in 1 bag since we would be there less than 48 hours. Challenge accepted & completed!  Boom!

We drove down Friday afternoon when I was finished with my work lunch.  I forgot a couple of small things so, we stopped by Target & then made our way to the hotel for the night. #targetisalifesaver   Saturday morning we were up & at 'em & off to Moody Gardens. I have been told in the past if we got the chance to go, go. All in all it was a great experience & fun place. You certainly get a lot of bang for your buck as we did the aquarium, rain forest, skeleton museum (not what it's called but, #mombrain), 3D movie, 4D Interactive movie & the Birds of Flight show.  We had a jam packed day & still did not see everything.  We were wiped out after dinner & called it a night.


Sunday we slept in a bit, packed up & then had lunch at the Rainforest Cafe.  Another check off the bucket list as it was our first time visiting there as well. We were impressed with the food for being a themed, chain restaurant & the service was awesome.  Overall it was a great experience & the perfect way to end our little get away!

Life Lately

I've said it before "I'm here!  I'm back!" but, I'm not going to say that again because all that gets me is a good two week run around this place and then I disappear again.  So, I'm here today... maybe again this week.  We shall see.  I have however, been craving to be here, to write again & let this creative side out again.  So, here I am... with a super creative life lately post.  You're welcome.  :)

Since I left off at Mother's Day we'll go back to May.  Matt & I had an awesome date night that was long overdue.  Speaking of, we're overdue again for a date night - we're really bad about making date nights priority.  But, we had a really great time that night together & no little one to worry about.

On Sunday of Memorial Day weekend we hosted a cookout at our house.  We had lots of friends with several little guys running around, playing in the water table, swimming pool & sand box.  It was a hot day but, everyone had a great time!
Water & then the sand box... we're clearly very smart parents.  Also, Jack had mosquito bites on his ears, hence the swollen, baby Hitch ears.  #winningatparenting

June was filled with a birthday pool party, Jack's first county rodeo, a 15 hour stay in the hospital for a bad case of croup and family vacation at the river.  There was certainly no shortage of fun... but, a possible shortage of sleep!
Despite his face, Jack loves the water just not so much the pictures sometimes

 The cutest little patient I ever did see!

Oh Concan... take us back! 

As of most recently we've enjoyed a Saturday morning at the Farmer's Market on the river - first time & we'll certainly be back again, enjoyed some lake time & Jack discovered how to climb up on the motorcycle - awesome!

Steel City Pops for the win!

Clearly, he's very proud of himself...

I hope you've enjoyed my photo dump!  See ya soon!

Mother's Day 2016

This weekend was an overall great weekend!  Saturday morning I took off early to get my hair done - chopped it off to just below my shoulders & I love it!  After I got home my guys had roses & a card waiting on me for Mother's Day.  I soaked up the roses but, decided to wait to open my card until Sunday.  Later Saturday afternoon we went to Azle where my Dad & Mary were having a big cook-out to celebrate all the sweet mommas!

The guys grilled steaks & everyone brought a side dish or dessert.  Mary also made Banana Pudding and needless to say, Jack handled cleaning out the bowl & licking the spoon just fine!  Later in the night we were even getting him to walk for the Banana Pudding - ha!  #willwalkforbananapudding

Mary was so sweet & spoiled me with lots of goodies for Mother's Day!  This top is from the LC Lauren Conrad line at Kohl's - I really love this line of hers!

On Sunday, Matt let me sleep in and wrangled the wild little one.  After I woke up (at 9am!) we had breakfast & pretty much bummed around the house all day.  We were a little productive in getting prepped for a yard sale next weekend but, other than that we pretty much vegged all day.  I sort of got down about it - feeling like a lazy bum - but, decided to embrace it & we stayed in our jams all day!  And we finally got this little cowboy to wear his chaps for the first time!

My beautiful Roses from my guys!

And one very sweet, adorable, squishy hand print of Jack's!  I will cherish this forever & ever... and request this be done every year!!!  <Insert allll the heart eyes!>

However you celebrated Mother's Day, I hope you had a great day!  I know for those of us who are missing our moms it isn't always easy - and I can only imagine it is the same for those who are longing to become a mom.  My thoughts are with all who struggle on these special days.
