Life Lately...


Hey y'all!  I've had full intentions to pop back in here more often but, with only having access to our computer in the evenings now - which seem to fly by - it's just not as easy as it once was.  Maybe as time progresses I'll be able to carve out some time & get back to it.  Until then, I'll pop in from time to time when I can.  So, here's what's been going on around our part of the world lately....

Reading... I came across this the other day & got so choked up!  It is so true though!  Here we are wishing for something to hurry up & get here or we're "so tired of this or that"... You just never know when it will be "the last time".

Spending spare time... at Jack's changing table.  Sounds odd I know but, this boy turns into such a little ham after a good nap, full belly & clean diaper!  He is really starting to "talk" a lot & it's the cutest, most sweetest thing ever!  So, we spend a good 10-15 minutes chatting it up throughout the day at his changing pad!

Soaking up... All of the baby snuggles that I can possibly get!  Afternoon naps on the couch with Momma are the absolute best... says Momma!

This last weekend a girlfriend & I spent some time in Downtown Ft. Worth - the sun was out, it was warm, truly a gorgeous day!  This little stud was so good too!  These sunglasses were supposed to be in his Easter basket but, we had to bust them out a little early!

Buying... All of the rompers I can get my hands on!  Rompers are by far mine & Matt's favorite thing to put Jack in.  I love the way He looks in them + they are super convenient for changing diapers while out & about!  No more dealing with the onesie, pants & whatever else there is to put back together!

Wanting... To chop my hair off!  Someone has discovered my hair & pulls at it like crazy!  Since my husband would cry (& I would too!) if I chopped it off, I'm thinking of doing something along these lines but, a tad bit longer...
the perfect "in-between" cut made better by skipping the "awkward stage flip" choosing beachy curls over a super smooth style.

What have you been up to lately?

Five on Friday!


Hi Friends!  Happy Friday!  Or as some are calling it now days, Happy Fri-yay!  I kind of like it.  Adds just a little more cheer to your Friday!

I'm linking up with Christina, Natasha, April & Darci today for Five on Friday!

One - Earlier this week Matt & I decided to take advantage of the nice weather we were having & went out on our first "family of four" walk!  It was so nice to get out of the house & soak up the fresh air - safe to say we all really enjoyed it!  {& Bingham did great with the stroller - yay!}

Two - I had my 6 week post-partum check-up at the Dr. this week & got the all clear!  So, there will be much more of these evening walks, I've started using My Fitness Pal again & I'm going to start up the workouts again as well!  After 10+ months of literally no working out, it's like I've never worked out before & I have a completely different body!  I've got 13 lbs of baby weight to lose + about another 18 that I had packed on pre-pregnancy so, Momma has to get. to. work!  Any tips on getting back into the groove of working out after baby??

Three - Last Sunday we had Spring/Family pictures taken. This is one of the sneak peeks I was sent & my heart just melted! Bingham really does love Jack already & I can't wait for them to be best friends!! {Check out A & C Photography if you're in the D/FW area!}

Four - Easter is right around the corner!!  I so want to take some fun Easter pics with Jack & I'm hoping he'll cooperate!  Here's one of my inspirational pictures from Pinterest!  I'll keep y'all posted if they turn out!

Five - & speaking of Easter... We'll be taking our first road trip with the babe... It normally takes us 6 hrs to drive but, I know it will take much longer this time. Any tips from fellow moms on baby's first road trip!?  What's worth taking?  What should we leave behind?  Any help is much appreciated!!

I hope y'all have a great weekend!!

Weekend Rundown!


This last weekend Matt & I packed up the babe & went to our friends house for the first crawfish boil of the season!  The weather was supposed to be warm & full of sunshine but, instead it was cool & overcast.  So, Jack had to stay inside until right before we left... you know, to have proof he really was there! It was great getting out of the house, seeing friends & sort of doing normal stuff again!



Jack's first party & crawfish boil!!


We're getting the hang of what all we need to take with us when leave the house & just how much we need of each and every thing... you know, diapers, wipes, bottles, burp rags, extra clothes, etc., etc.  I don't think we forgot anything Saturday so, two thumbs up for us!  Ha!
