A Look Back: March 2017

March was a super fun month filled with a lot of celebrating!  We kicked off the month by celebrating my best friend Erin's 30th birthday!  We had dinner downtown Ft. Worth at Cantina Laredo & then shimmied over to Studio 80 where we danced the night away (well... until 11:45 for us to get home for the sitter) to 80's music.  It was SO much fun and the perfect way to celebrate my super fabulous friend!

The following weekend we celebrated my Dad and Mary getting married!  Their love story is so sweet and I"m so glad the Lord worked in each of their hearts and brought them back together.  We are blessed to have Mary officially be a part of our family!  My mom's two sisters even came to town to celebrate with us - they consider my dad like a 3rd brother.  So, it was really nice to get to visit with them a little extra that weekend and we all had the best time at the wedding.  Especially Jack as He danced his little booty off all night & was the talk of the reception.

That same weekend we also began house hunting!  (More on that later!)  But, not before fueling up at iHop with funny flapjacks!

Our 3rd celebration was for our nephew's 8th birthday.  They live about an hour from us so, we don't get to see them often but, no matter how long it's been Jack and his cousins always pick right back up.  I'm so glad that he has Chase & Ty as cousins because they adore him just about as much as he adores them.  It truly is the cutest, sweetest thing to witness!

We could't escape March without someone coming down with some sort of sickness.  Poor Jack got a viral infection the last week of March.  Thankfully, it didn't last too long but, still never fun seeing your little babe sick.  All in all, March was a great month!

Easter 2017

Despite the crazy season of life we are in right now, we still decided to pack our bags & go South for Easter weekend.  I'm so glad we did because Matt & I both agreed that overall it was a really great weekend.

Friday morning we planned to leave by 8, figured it would actually be 10 & ended up leaving at 9 - win in our book!  Jack did great on the 6 hour car ride, yelling at the big trucks, singing & watching movies. Thank goodness for the DVD player!!

We arrived at my aunt's house Friday afternoon & a little later went to my other aunt's house to visit & see her baby rabbits. She has a mini farm at her house so, it was fun for the little kids to see the animals.  I didn't think Jack would do well holding the rabbit on his own so I helped the first time. And then he wanted to hold it on his own after seeing his older cousins hold the bunny. Such a big boy!  He loved the bunny & didn't want to let go!



Saturday was our big gathering with family & Easter egg hunt.  Jack was more interested in riding bikes (he also discovered these while there) & breaking open the cascarones (confetti eggs) than actually hunting Easter eggs. So, maybe next year he'll be interested.



We also let the kiddos have their Easter baskets on Saturday since Sunday would be so busy. Again, Jack cared mostly about his new ball & bubbles than anything else. But, I know he'll get great use out of everything else he received as well!


On Sunday we packed our bags, went to church for Easter service & witnesses my cousin's little boy be baptized. After church we headed back North for home.

Hope you each had a wonderful Easter as well!

A Look Back: February 2017

Oh February... The shortest month.  The month that will undoubtedly fly by, and it did.  And of course the month where I feel like we crammed alll the things in.  Although, we took a quick breather after January & wrapping up Jack's 2nd birthday party.  The first weekend in February we did absolutely nothing... and it. was. glorious!

We were soon swept back on our feet and celebrated my father-in-laws 75th birthday!  My mother-in-law actually put the morning together for him, Matt and one of his brothers to take a flight around Ft. Worth in a World War II plane - a Douglas C-47.  All three of the guys agreed it was a cool experience.

The following week we celebrated Valentine's day.... at home, sick.  Jack had started running fever the evening of the 13th so, Matt & I pulled half days at work and switched out being with him on the 14th.  By the afternoon of the 14th I could feel that "feel like death" feeling creeping in and had a mild fever and body aches to accompany it.  Needless to say Jack and I both visited the doctor the next day to find out that I just had an upper respiratory virus & Jack had strep throat,  What. A. Week!

To top it off, Friday began wedding festivities for one of my oldest friends, Brittany.  She lives in Colorado but, they were getting married here so it was a fun-filled weekend in Ft. Worth.  The wedding was held at the beautiful & historic First Christian Church in downtown Ft. Worth with the reception at Ruth's Chris Steak House.  It was a fun day of getting glammed up with the girls & then celebrating Brittany & David officially tying the knot! Ha!

We also closed one chapter of our lives, for now in February. We have been casually trying to sell the motorcycle since I was pregnant with Jack.  With Matt working such a distance from home now it's been at the top of our list to get him a commuter car.  So, one afternoon a guy text Matt about the motorcycle and by that evening it was sold.  Jack loved to hear the motorcycle rev up & thoroughly enjoyed using it as a jungle gym when the pipes weren't hot.  We had one last jungle gym session on the bike that afternoon before it was picked up.  I am most positive we'll have another bike again one day... after we put kids through college.  ;)

We wrapped up the month by completing a project we said we were going to do for a long time and just never did.  It ended up being a rather easy project, said Matt and we absolutely love how it turned out.  Now we're just sad we didn't replace the shutters on our house sooner!

That's a wrap for February!
