When I look back at my teenage years, I can honestly say I was a little prick growing up. I know it wasn’t easy raising a stubborn daughter like me who never listened, and thought I was smarter than my parents. I always thought my parents were to strict and too old fashioned, and growing up I vowed, I never would be like my mom. But then your mom’s famous last words of “one day you will know what it’s like to be a mom and one day you will know I am right” came true. I became a mom, and just like that I realized I knew nothing, just like John Snow in Games of Thrones. I realized all those years of me arguing and second guessing my mom, she was right all along. So this Mother’s Day I am dedicating this post to my mom. A tribute to all the things my mom was right about that I finally realized now that I am a mom.
Hope you had a great week! Sorry I’ve been MIA this week, but we just closed on our new house this week and have been so busy moving in! It’s been one crazy whirlwind journey with this new home because the process literally happened in less than a month! We found this home, fell in love, and in three weeks we close. And in between then we have been busy trying to get everything ready to move plus clear out of our old house. We are also in the process of remodeling the kitchen in our new house so its been non stop. But I’m finally getting to your request for an empty house tour. So check it out and read more on why we chose this home to be our new home to grow our family in!
Hope you are having a great week! This past weekend we celebrated our little guy’s fourth birthday with the family. I can’t believe how much he has grown! Check out Jayden’s birth story and first birthday. Last week we had such a blast on our family trip to Colorado. Jayden loves the snow, and there wasn’t anything we didn’t do with the little guy when it came to snow activities. We even took him snowboarding again. And if you thought he was good last year, then you have to check out the video above and watch him shred the slopes by himself. I still can’t believe how talented he is. I had so many questions about him snowboarding and all the other activities Jayden was doing and so today I am sharing my top activities for kids for your next snow trip. Check them out below!
I hope ya’ll had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year. We celebrated with our traditional Filipino New Years dinner at my parents house. 2018 has been an amazing year and it’s crazy to look back and see everything we have done and accomplished. As a family we have been more intentional in giving our life to the Lord and having full faith in what he has in store in our life. This year has had its shares of ups and downs. I’ve been to more funerals this year than I have last, and of love ones who have passed way sooner than we have imagined. Life has a way of really putting things in perspective for you and making you realize that the time we have here is precious. Each moment we have to make count. God has truly blessed us this year, and each memory we made this year we are truly thankful. Today on the blog I’ve rounded up my favorite memories and milestones of 2018 as well as sharing some of the most popular post of the year. Check them out below and see if any of your favorites made the list!

I’m so blessed to share these memories with my best friend. Happy birthday my love, here’s to spending every birthday with you!

This post is in partnership with Bridgeland.Hi everyone!
Last week, my family and I attended the 10th annual Howl-O-Ween Fest at the Bridgeland master planned community in Cypress, Texas. It was our first time going, and Jayden had so much fun especially since we got to bring Rotel, his best furry friend. It’s one of the biggest pet-friendly Houston events for Halloween for the whole family with tons of games, food trucks, and even a costume contest. Jayden and Rotel went as Batman and Superman! While we were there, we even got to tour some of the model homes in the community. Our family is looking to build a new home next year and hopefully expand our family. We absolutely fell in love with the homes in Bridgeland. In fact, I think we might have even found our dream home! If you are looking at new homes in Houston for your family, here are seven reasons the Bridgeland community is the perfect pet-friendly master planned community for your family.
The elections are just around the corner and emotions and the tension is at an all time high. Especially if you are in Texas. Let’s just say there are a lot of families divided in this election including my own. And though there will be a loser and winner next week, the outcome of the election shouldn’t cause a rift in our relationships with our friends and family. So today I thought I’d share what my experience in having a bipartisan family in Texas and tips to surviving the election.
