Last weekend was a weird one for us.
Bella went to church camp for the 3 day weekend
and honestly Eric & I didn't know what to do with ourselves!
Friday night we went out with our best friends to dinner
and a piano bar.
We had such a fun time!
Inside joke, when we were in Vegas we went to a dueling piano bar
that ended the night with Africa by Toto!
Who even plays that at piano bars?!
When we went into Rockey's Friday night,
I said if we hear Africa, I'm out!
It played close to the end of the night and we all 4 left after it ended!
We were laughing so hard that we heard it!
Saturday we decided to stay all day in our PJ's,
watch movies, and do absolutely nothing!
It was glorious!!
We decided to make Sunday a day date,
so we went to Jack Allen's for brunch,
it was AMAZING!!
Afterwords, we went and saw the new Ben Afleck movie,
and we liked it!
I'm not a huge fan of his, but the movie was pretty darn good!
We spend the evening watching the Cowboy's game
(Let's not speak about that!)
And just hanging out.
Monday Bella came back from camp.
It was raining most of the weekend so the picture below
shows her on Friday evening about to depart,
and how she was once she got back home!
Let's just say we've been exhausted,
gone to 2 doctors,
and finally made it back to school today!
This coming weekend we are in Bella's 10th Birthday preparation mode!
She turns the big 10 next Thursday!!
Where did the time go?!

It's time to reveal our half bath!
This was a huge difference,
We changed out the sink,
painted, new floors, etc.
It was definitely hard work,
but it was all worth it!
One more before picture:
Ugh hated that sink!!
Now for the reveal:
Is it not amazing?!
I'M IN LOVE!!
Seriously, I can't get over how good it looks!
I wish the pictures did it justice.
Holy smokes it is just so pretty!
We still have a little painting and edging to do,
but overall I'm just so darn happy!
I said it yesterday, but I have to say it again,
to my husband and father in law!
They're hard work really paid off
and we couldn't be more proud!

I know I've been MIA on this blog for quite a while,
but BIG THINGS have happened lately
and it's kept me quite busy!
One of the biggest things being we remodeled our downstairs!
The picture above is before with our original carpet that was
Who puts white carpet in a house?!
Here's another before picture from a different angle:
For 2 weeks my husband and his dad worked tirelessly making our floors look amazing!
Ready for the reveal?!
And the kitchen...
We are SO HAPPY with how it turned out!!
It makes a world of difference in our home,
we couldn't be happier.
Thank you to my amazing husband & his awesome Dad
for making our house look so much better!
I will show the before and after of our half bath.
It's COMPLETELY remodeled!

I wanted to take a minute out of my day and remind myself to stop and breathe.
Cherish the holidays with my family,
spend as much time as possible with my daughter,
and enjoy my life just a little more.
Bella turns 10 next month,
and it feels like time with her is dwindling.
Pretty soon she's not going to want to sit in my arms and cuddle,
tell me all the funny things that happened at school,
climb into our bed when she's had a nightmare,
or beg me not to leave when we take her somewhere.
Before we know it she will be sharing secrets with her friends,
instead of her parents,
she will want to go on dates with boys,
instead of Mommy & Me day,
and I will watch her grow into a beautiful, amazing woman
before my eyes.
So until that time, I will cherish the moments we spend together,
going to movies,
checking out Christmas lights,
laughing at the funny things that happened at school today,
and I will know that no matter how many pictures I take,
how many blogs I post about her,
how many times I hug her and tell her I love her,
it won't be enough.
For she will one day be a little too far out of my reach.

This past weekend seemed to fly by, except for Sunday.
Saturday we took Bella to Fiesta Texas
to Holiday in the Park.
2 words: Cold & Rainy.
I'm not sure if you can tell by the pictures,
but it was so cold we all froze!
We only lasted 3 hours before giving in and heading home.
We did get on all the open rides,
and luckily no lines
(Hmmm wonder why?!)
Man Bella & I can rock some beanies!
(I wear them CONSTANTLY in the Winter!)
Saturday night we went to a friend's 40th birthday party!
Parker and his wife Tasha threw him an awesome birthday
at a bar in the Domain.
It was a blast!
Loved seeing people we haven't seen in years!
Such a fun time!
Little did we know all 3 of us would pay for Six Flags on Sunday!
We all were sick and feeling terrible all day.
Luckily we got our fun in the day before,
because none of us got off the couch Sunday!
Here's to a new week
filled with Christmas wrapping,
and spending time with the 2 people I love the most!
