Annual Scarf Swap


Let’s just ignore the fact that I’ve been silent for months and months and celebrate the fact that it’s fall y’all! Along with pumpkin flavored treats, crisp weather, and football, fall also means scarves! And you can bet your bottom dollar that I accessorize with a scarf as soon as the temps drop below 80 {grumblegrumbleHoustonweathergrumble} so when Meredith scheduled her 5th annual scarf swap, I signed up right away.

But my favorite thing about the swap? Finding new blogs and meeting new people! Mateya and I were paired up and I have so enjoyed learning about her and her family on The Best Is Yet to Come. Her family is adorable and I can’t wait to follow along!

Since Mateya is an AdvoCare rep, she added a Spark packet {which I’m so excited to try!}. And anyone that knows me, can take a look at the scarf and know how perfect it is! I can’t wait to wear it! Even if I look like a crazy person 🙂



Weekend Recap

Hello there!

On Sunday evenings, I’m always so sad to see the weekend fly by so quickly so I thought it best to document them and remember how fun they are {even when they aren’t}.

Lee and I had a date night in Friday evening complete with homemade pizza and wine.  We made the pizza together, took some silly photos, and actually ate at the kitchen table instead of on the couch watching television {horrible habit of ours}.  The pizza turned out less than ideal since I didn’t realize the fresh mozzarella needed to be dried out.  Kinda bummed, but the toppings were delicious!  We enjoyed a bread-free dinner and each other’s company.

Living in a planned community means there are constantly new houses being built.  Unfortunately for us, this also means debris which could lead to flat tires.  Enter: the Leonhardts.  Saturday morning, we started the day at the Subaru dealership to buy a new tire then headed to the Shulers for James’s famous BBQ.  We had springlike weather and enjoyed much of the day outside whilst Cullen entertained us on his Power Wheels.  I wish I snapped a photo!  Such a cutie!

I snuck out of the house Sunday morning to meet Belle at Target and found the tiniest little shoes.  Little human clothes are adorable.


We spent the day organizing, cleaning, and styling the house in preparation for next Saturday’s brunch.  It’s so funny to see our house become a home in the year that we’ve been here.  It finally looks like people live there instead of random furniture strewn about.

Of course, we had to end the day with the Super Bowl {Beyonce put on a fantastic show, btw!} and a tiny bit of the Puppy Bowl.  Lucy had no idea what was going on, but she did not like it one bit.  We only watched about three minutes of the Puppy Bowl and she barked the entire time.  So funny!

And since football doesn’t quite hold my attention for an entire three hours, I had a chance to finish up my Instagram/PostalPix scrapbook.  I love how it turned out and can’t wait to start documenting February’s photos.  This project is so easy and on the inexpensive side of things.  It’s fun to think about where these tangible photos will be years from now and who will look at them!  I hope future generations enjoy!


High Five For Friday

I honestly do not know where time goes.  Days are oh so long, but weeks are flying by a little faster than I’d like.  Weeks are so busy and so fast that last weekend I had to break it to Lee that I need to schedule him into my free time.  I told my fiance that I need to add him to my schedule.  And he still wants to marry me!  {I think}

And wouldn’t you know that I have hardly any photos from this week {because I’m so darn busy!}  Okay, now I’m just whining.

1.  Over the weekend Lee became an official suburbanite by purchasing his first real grill.  It’s pretty darn cute to see a guy excited about something so domestic but I had to keep reminding myself he’s excited about FIRE and FOOD and BEER!  Eight and a half months later, we’re officially suburbanites!

2.  Again, #weddingshit is in full force.  Saturday we had a walk through at our venue and I think it was a real wake up call for all of us.  Less than 12 weeks, people!  We need to get on the ball!  So what else does a crafty dad do after spending all morning painting a mural and all afternoon touring a wedding venue?  He gets to work, duh.  I saw one of these signs on Etsy way back when and as I was about to pull the trigger to order it Dad said, “I can make that!”  So he is.  I’ve got some pretty cool parents 🙂

3.  Jessica is hosting my wedding shower and had a brilliant idea of making dachshund cupcake toppers.  Belle and I got to work gluing these together and they have turned out so cute!  I can’t wait to see them at the shower!

4.  I came home from work today and Lucy wanted to just cuddle and and play.  When we’re on the floor playing, she’ll crawl under my upper body, roll over, and wait for kisses.  Such a sweet girl.

5.  An impromptu sushi date with the Shuler family was the perfect way to end a long Tuesday {my absolute least favorite day of the week}.  And of course, neither of us bloggers took a single photo.  Maybe next time 🙂
