    Jayden’s 5 Year Portraits

    Hi friends!

    I can’t believe the day is here, my little man turns five! It’s crazy to think how time flies, even more so when you watch your children grow. This year makes me a little sad though, because this is the year my son goes into kindergarten. It’s a good thing don’t get me wrong, but for some reason I feel like I am losing my little baby. Day by day my little man starts growing into a young man and I don’t know if my heart can take it. I just want these moments to last forever. I remember I use to worry about my son sleeping in our bed, and now I cherish everyday he chooses to sleep with us, because it’s at night when he’s asleep where he still looks like my little baby. I cherish every hug, every kiss, and every time he still needs his mama, because I know as he gets older there will be a day where I am longer his center of his world. I don’t know if I’ll ever be ready for that day, but today I’m just thankful. Thankful for another wonderful year to watch my son grow older. So today I am sharing these beautiful portraits we took with our son and our dog for his 5th birthday. Thank you so much Alexis from Candid Kids Photography for capturing my son so beautifully. I will cherish these photos forever.  Continue reading

    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    Hi friends,

    We are less than two days till Christmas and a week away from NYE! Today is also my hubby’s birthday so I thought I would share one of my favorite NYE look with this gold metallic dress for under $100 I took with my handsome hubby. I love taking photos with him even though he is not a big fan of getting in front of the camera, because I love looking back at these memories. Plus I think my husband gets more  handsome with age like a fine wine. Check out more of our look below!

    This past weekend I hosted a blogger brunch at the La Table Houston with my  favorite boss babes. La Table is a French inspired restaurant that has four different dinning experience in one. For our event we chose to have a casual dining experience at Marche in the outdoor patio. The French inspired decor and menu is a blogger brunch dream. We were served a tasting menu that incorporated Marche’s new seasonal menu features lighter fare including new vegan and vegetarian options. Everything was absolutely beautiful and delicious. Check out more of the brunch at La Table and details of my spring inspired brunch outfit below.  Continue reading

    29 Life Lessons I learned in my 20’s

    Can’t believe I am 29! Time sure does fly by, especially more now that I have a family of my own. This past weekend we went to our 3rd annual trip to Dallas to visit family and support the Texas Rangers. (View our past trips here and here.) We come from a baseball family, and there’s nothing more that makes this mama’s heart melt than seeing my husband and son share their love for the game. On Saturday the night before my birthday, when we went to the game my hubby surprised me with the sweetest birthday message on the big jumbotron at the Ranger’s stadium. And to top it off, since Josh’s Uncle manages the Rangers, we were able to sit right behind President George W. Bush and meet him at the game! Now that’s a pretty awesome way to remember my 29th birthday. I’m really thankful to be able to have such wonderful family to celebrate with on my birthday, and as I near my thirties I can’t help but reflect on how much I have learned and grown in my twenties. I never imagined my life would be like this, and never could imagine how amazing life would be. I look back at all my throwback pictures and can’t help but laugh at all the crazy good times, and lessons learned. My 20’s were something else, and there isn’t a single thing I regret about it, not even my poor choice in “hoochie mama” clothing during my college party days lol. All of my choices, all of my heartaches, all of my mistakes, help me be who I am today. So here are 29 life lessons I learned in my 20’s. Continue reading
