My baby turned Eleven

Pipers-11-year-old-Selfie.jpg

Eleven years ago (yesterday), on Good Friday – right before Easter – Piper came rushing into this world. On April 18th – six weeks before her actual due date of June 6th - at around 5:45 pm, in Kerrville Texas, 2003, Piper was born. She was tiny (weighing in at 5pounds 0 ounces, and dropping [...]

Its Been Sixteen Days Since My Last Post

20140416_1729481.jpg

I haven’t written in 16 days (minus the post I had to get in before the deadline), but it’s with good reason that I hadn’t… I’m still in the process of getting everything set up, but…we’re in a new house. We haven’t bought it yet, but this is the home my family and I spend [...]

Not Adjusting to the New #TimeChange

at-7pm-and-its-still-bright.jpg

Oh my gosh…I’m having a harder than hard time adjusting to the new time change. I mean, how am I going to get used to falling to sleep when it still looks this bright @ 7:00PM (when my bedtime is at 7:30)? I’ve shut my blinds, put thick curtains up and even placed a dresser [...]

Looking For Wall Art @Minted to Compliment Our New Space

Highland-Cows-by-Amy-Carroll.jpg

Yay!!! Our lease at the apartment complex – where we live now – has finally ended ; now we’re looking into finding a home, with a back yard, and large windows, and lots of wall space for decorating. Our taste in decorating is old, aged and rustic. We love natural untreated wood (reused from old [...]

A Lot Has been Happening Despite The Updates

Oh my gosh…where do I start? It’s been busy over here, even if I haven’t been blogging every day (like I used to do). Disclosure: This is just another random post. There are no affiliated links or paid “mentions” to be seen…just my life’s updates. Thanks for reading.  Between my fulltime job (at Gold’s Gym), [...]
