Ana Marquez-Greene, 6
Dylan Hockley, 6
Madeline Hsu, 6
Benjamin Wheeler, 6
Catherine Hubbard, 6

Caroline Previdi, 6
Avielle Richman, 6
Lauren Rousseau, 30
Mary Sherlach, 56
Victoria Soto, 27
Allison Wyatt, 6
These people lost their lives in a senseless tragedy Friday. Want to know where I was Friday at the same exact time? I was here
Eric & I were at Bella's school having lunch with her & her best friend Jayce. Not a care in the world, eating chicken nuggets and fries, playing with the toys that came with the lunch, laughing, not a care in the world. Happy to be 6 years old and getting to see her parents during the day.
This is what a child (EVERY CHILD) should feel & be every day. My heart hurts and is broken in pieces for the families of the kids, teachers, & principal that lost their lives Friday morning. Eric & I have made sure not to mention anything in front of Bella. No news when she's in the room on TV, nothing. I want to keep her as innocent and happy as I possibly can for as long as I possibly can.
Eric & I together have and will keep praying for EVERYONE at that school. The ones who made it out safely & the ones who didn't. The ones that had to hear and see things that no kid should ever have to live through. May God watch over everyone in CT.

Weekend Wrap Up

We actually got to have a 3 day weekend & it was perfect!
Thursday night, Eric & I celebrated 13 years together with dinner & the Eli Young Band concert. (If you've never heard of them, they are ah-maz-ing!! Go to ITunes and find them!!) Bella took a picture of us before we left for the night.
Friday we met Bella & Jayce for lunch at her school before going to run multiple errands all over Austin. We finished the exhausting day with Bella's 1st school dance. It was super cute & the PTA mom's did an awesome job!

Saturday we booked Bella's party & finished all of our Christmas shopping!! Woo-hoo!! We met all of our neighbors and ended up having wayyyyyy too much fun until the wee hours of the night!

All of our awesome neighbors
We were pretty slow to get up Sunday morning & ended up resting most of the day before going to dinner with everyone for Kellie's birthday! It really ended up being an amazing weekend!
Eric, Bella, & my fortune cookie.... think it's trying to tell us something?!


December 13, 2012

This weekend will mark 13 years since Eric & I met freshman year of college. Wow, 13 years sounds amazing and yet feels like a lot less. We've been through literally everything life can throw at us and have still made it out on the other side happier & better in our marriage.
NYE 2008
It definitely wasn't love at 1st sight (seeing as how we met on 6th street around midnight or so, that which neither of us remembers very well!), but we've been at each other's side ever since.
Circa 2009
We're not only partners in marriage, but best friends in love and life. We compliment each other in ways we never thought we could & because of our love we've been able to look back at the last 13 years and realize that neither of us would be where we are right now without each other.
Christmas 2008
Eric, I love you now more than ever. You're such an amazing husband and father and without you I couldn't imagine being 1/2 as happy. I hope we have many many more years together. I love you with my whole heart & hope we have the best anniversary weekend!
This is normal, quirky, silly us together!

Obsessed Much?!

December 11, 2012

I always post about my new favorite make-up find without ever realizing that I have an insane obsession with one product. It's been something that I seriously cannot live without for well over 10 years now. If I run out, I go insane until I get some more... and trust me that lasts only a few minutes before I'm heading to Walgreens or HEB to pick another tube up.
So what am I so obsessed about I literally cannot live without it??

Yep.... Chapstick! But not any Chapstick, only the blue labeled moisturizing one without any taste, smell, etc. I got through a tube a month (not lying) and have to have 1 at my desk at work & 1 in my handbag at all times. I NEVER wear lipstick or gloss, just always Chapstick. It's my crutch!

What's your 1 thing you can't live without?

Meeting Santa

December 10, 2012

On Sunday, our HOA put on a meet Santa day at our clubhouse. They do it every year & Bella just loves to go meet him & tell Santa everything she wants. This year she did awesome! She pretty much forgot everything she asked for in her letter, but was able to ask for a few things!
Before we left, showing off her Christmas dress!

Meeting Santa!

I adore this picture! So cute!!

Target & Neiman Marcus

December 4, 2012

Target has teamed up with Neiman Marcus and I am way too excited for words! Now the prices may be a wee bit extremely over the normal Target price point, but still look at the beauties...
Oscar De La Renta Tote
Hello Lover...

I think I'm in love...

I have absolutely no where to wear this dress, yet it's still screaming "Put me in your closet!!!"

What are your favorites from the collection?
