Almost 2 months!

Hello there! Loooooooong time no blog. Busy is an understatement to what’s been going on in our little world.

While away I’ve spent a little time reflecting on this here blog. I have so many things in my life to take seriously and I want this blog to be a little getaway from the “serious” things in life….you know marriage, work, house upkeep & remodel, etc. -LIFE!

With that being said, I don’t want to put any hard and fast rules on myself with this blog. I wanna just go with the flow, post whatever whenever. I’m not sure how often that will be but I’m sticking around :-). I hope you will too!

Happy Holidays to you & yours!

Life Lately

OMG! Where does time go? I mean really…one minute you’re making summer plans & the next it’s ALMOST October. Geeeeeez. I can not complain though because hands down, October is my favorite month of the year!

All of that said…I’ve been missing this here blog thing and am forcing some attention this direction. It’s not that I don’t want to post, it’s that I look at the clock and it’s bed time waaay to soon after leaving work.

In between, there is owning a home and all the little projects we plan and create that receives our undivided attention ALMOST all of the time! For those of you who’ve asked and missed this little blog of ours, we say “Thank You” for reading and noticing our absence. Thank you for your patience and also for returning!

This is a little bit of our life lately…









1. Takin in some college football with some of my favorite girls! Texas Tech vs Texas State….Tech won!!

2. Chilaquiles (similar to Migas) @ High Ball w/ Brandy

3. My 1st terrarium (i didn’t create this one but I plan on it one day)….purchased @ Austin Flea from this vendor: Curious Botany

4. I planted these little guys in vintage tea cups from our wedding…perfect for the window sill….the succulents were grown in East Austin & purchased @ Whole Foods

5. Dave took this adorable photo of Abbey….Love her!

6. Chalkboard painted kitchen pantry door for love notes & menu plans!

7. Little owl knobs used on our freshly painted shutters….lovely little details

8. The Ah-mahi(zing) result of Dave’s fishing trip this past weekend…..fresh caught & cooked (by Dave!) black pepper cashew & cilantro crusted mahi-mahi topped with sautéed jalapeños, with grilled zucchini and portobello mushrooms with a light wine!

What’s going on in your busy world?

It’s Time

It’s been a long 8 months and we’re so excited for this college football season to begin! You can feel the spirit in the air….the anticipation of watching your favorite team take the field to give us, the fans, what we’re dying to have…a WIN, one game at a time.

As we move into another football season, I have to say my emotions are in an interesting place. Since about mid-college I’ve had strong negative emotions towards the Texas Longhorns…..not sure if it’s the loud obnoxious fans (I totally know that all teams have them) or the fact that they seem to always have the cream of the crop players over my Red Raiders. These emotions have caused several ugly arguments between Dave and I & even with myself and close friends. Sometime last season, I started to realize that I need to let these negative emotions go so I can enjoy the many seasons ahead with my husband….and not allow the passion that I have for my college football team to cause a true divide in my head, heart & household.

So it’s time people. Time to enjoy the positivity that college football brings. Now, you won’t see me wearing burnt orange or hear me singing the Texas Fight song, however, I have found a tiny spot in my heart (for the love of my husband and in-laws ) for the Texas Longhorns. (Shhhh! Now don’t tell my dad…he needs to hear this from me face to face….he won’t see this bc he has no clue what a blog is).

Best of luck to the Texas Tech Red Raiders (my alma-mater) & of course to the Texas Longhorns (please keep our home a happy one!)

The only place there is a divide is here on this flag:


Happy College Football Season to all!

Who knew you could style an “ow-ee” these days….not me, until now….after applying the final coat of sealant to our stained concrete floors (it was my turn), I discovered a painful little blister that developed – OUCH. I needed a band-aid so I ran into Target and found these cute and enticingly packaged band-aids by Cynthia Rowley.



Beats the heck out of the ugly yellow ones!
