Spring Break Wish List
Even though it's been cold and rainy in Houston the last few days, we are so excited for spring! At the end of the month we're taking a trip across Louisiana and stopping in New Orleans for a few days, then heading to Pensacola to have some fun in the sun. I'm loving all things hot pink and of course striped; can't get enough of floppy hats, either. I thought the romper trend would have already come and gone but it seems to be better than ever; I'm loving all the high neck styles and geometric prints.

What's on your wish list for spring? Would love to hear!

Sweetwater Visit

Two weeks ago, Bear and I headed to my hometown to visit family. Little did we know we'd be getting ourselves snowed in! The weather was freezing across West Texas but we still had a fun visit and can't wait to go back at Easter!

Not a huge fan of the snow.
Hope you're having a wonderful week!
Happy Hump Day!

Weekend Fun

Last weekend we got to see some of our very favorite people! My parents came to visit for a couple days, and our good friends Elissa and Jose came on Sunday for some shopping in Old Town Spring. We had so much fun visiting with everyone and Bear especially loved all the attention.

We shopped Sunday after in Old Town Spring; loved seeing Elissa! We were best friends in college and have stayed close ever since.

We got the yummiest smelling handmade candles; I'm already addicted to the lemon scent.

We also indulged on fried Oreos, Reese's, & Snickers. So sinful yet so good.

Bear loves "Duke"!
Awkward posed picture; my Mom attempted taking outfit pictures for me but I only okayed one out of about sixty. So here it is :).
Sunday evening we headed to our favorite place, Cheesecake Factory!
We headed to the mall Monday morning so Bear could ride the carousel and the girls could do a little shopping. (spy a Bear whisperer?)

Shopping wore this little boy out.

I prefer my sneakers with sparkles. Thanks for the new kicks, Mom!

Just realized Zach didn't make any of these pictures...pretty sure he avoids them on purpose. ;)

Hope your weekend was a fun one, too!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy, happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!
The weather was so gorgeous here today; we took Bear for his first bowling experience this morning (which he loved, naturally, pizza was involved) and spent the afternoon playing outside. Days like today make me so happy. As cliché as it sounds, it really is the simple things in life that are the most fulfilling.

A look at our week in pictures...

Bear & I have started trying to do daily #ootd pictures. Which usually means my hair looking crazy and Bear kissing himself in the mirror.
Had so much fun baking this week; one of the best baking weeks of the year!

I'm attempting to redo/reorganize my "office" (aka my small claimed corner of the playroom). Wanting to paint the desk and mirror white, but then again I've been wanting to do that for two we'll see if it ever gets around to actually happening :). In the meantime totally swooning over these spring elastic colors. We're already excited for Easter!
Bear's treats from our Valentine's party yesterday. So fortunate to be part of a playgroup that makes every holiday, and every normal day, so special.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect prints for above my desk for weeks; I was so excited to find these at Target for under $6 each! We have a little made up song we sing to Bear with "I love you to the moon and back", so that one is special.
the easiest "kiss ladies" for our Valentine party

loving that Christmas pj's are acceptable through February because of Valentine's Day :)

New wallet! Loving it so far.

This little boy loves corn on the cob.
Today's bowling experience was so much fun! Especially because I beat Z in one game and can't stop rubbing it in.
Bear beat us both.
 Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Pictures

Last week, Bear and I had an afternoon photo session with my good friend Aimey at Diamond Oak Photography. We decided to go with a Valentine's theme being so close to the holiday, which was fun! Bear unfortunately didn't feel very well that day and it's apparent by the lack of his normal cheery self in these pictures. But Aimey still did a fantastic job of capturing the few smiles he did give! If you live in the Houston area, I highly recommend her; she's super affordable too.
Here are our favorites...
