2012 Olympics

July 31, 2012

 

Is anyone else glued to their TV's all night watching the Olympics? I will literally watch almost every sport they are showing just for the fact that it is indeed the Olympics! My personal favorites are diving, swimming, beach volleyball, & of course gymnastics!

SPOILER ALERT AHEAD:

Okay 1st off, did anyone notice that NBC showed a commercial for the Today show saying Missy Franklin had won gold moments before they actually showed the race??? I saw it & said are you kidding me?! C'Mon!!! You can't wait 5 minutes to show that commercial?

On another note I was super sad to see Jordyn Weber not make the all around finals. I think Ally Raismann & Gabby Douglas are indeed amazing, but I wish we could have gotten all 3 of them to compete.  I think they might have taken all 3 medals... just me though!

So, only a week and a half more of the Olympics before my TV goes back to reruns & horrible reality TV shows that waste an hour of my life... Ha!

Weekend Wrap Up

July 30, 2012

This weekend we went home to Dallas to celebrate mine & Austyn's birthdays. My amazing sister had a whole girl's day planned for us.  Everything was a surprise for me, so when I got to her house, she let me know we were going to lunch at my favorite restaurant Gloria's. I was so excited because they really have the best food! We had so much fun catching up over fajitas & margaritas!
 
After lunch, she surprised me with hour long facials! It was amazing to say the least! We met up with my entire family Saturday evening for our birthday dinner. We went for Italian & had the best time! We all ended up back at my sisters watching the Olympics and laughing like crazy! I really do have the best familia in the world! They made my birthday (early birthday!) so special!
 
 
Eric, Bella, & I after my birthday dinner
 
I leave you with this video that Big Mama posted today & it is ME if Bella decides to stay in gymnastics... seriously this is me now when Bella's 5 & just learning how to do a cartwheel... poor thing!
 
Happy Monday Peeps!

A Must Read Post

July 24, 2012


 
 
I am an avid reader of The Shine Project blog. Ashley is always so positive and upbeat, that it literally makes my day brighter to read her posts!
 
Today's post touched my heart more than any before. She knew one of the victims who died in the Aurora movie theater shootings last week. Alex Teves was in the movie with his girlfriend when the shooter came in. Alex shoved her under the seat and shielded her with his body. He is truly a hero & someone who I'll never forget. I never met him or Ashley, but his story will live in me thanks to her amazing post.
 
If you have a minute, go to her post & read about this amazing hero. It will definitely change your day.

My weekend was perfect & included The Hub's company picnic, date night, etc. The highlight of the weekend was most definitely my sil's baby shower yesterday. We have a tradition of brunch & pedi's for our group's baby shower, so we had 11 ladies total & the best time! It was so fun getting to celebrate Baby Reyes! Here's some of my favorite pics from yesterday!

Weekend Wrap Up

July 16, 2012


This was a fun & extremely wet weekend...
 
Friday night Bella had a gymnastics party at her gym from 6-10 p.m., so Eric & I met up with his sis, Sandra, & her hubby, Mark. We always have such a great time when we all get together and Friday night was just the same. We met up at a new restaurant called Westside Alehouse. It had just finished raining, so the weather was sunny & cool, so we sat on the patio & listened to some live Texas Country Music. So much fun to sing along & catch up with them over a few beers.
 
Me & My SIL, Sandra. We always take pics together!
 
Saturday we ran some errands then went to a playground to let Bella run off some energy. She wasn't too fond of the park we found, because it was pretty hot out by then, so we made it a quick trip, then headed home to get ready to go to Aaron & Tin's house. 
 
Eric & Bella playing at the park. She loves to make silly faces!
Saturday night we went to our friend's house for dinner. Bella had so much fun playing with their son Ethan & watching Disney movies. The food was amazing (Tin's an awesome cook!) & we had a great time getting to see and catch up with them again!
 
Sunday we did a deep cleaning on the house because it was desperately needed. We decided to take Bella to a indoor play place called Jump Zone for an hour or so. She jumped on trampolines, rope swing into a foam pit, took a humongous slide, etc. Exhausting for Bella & her parents!!
 
 

Brave brave girl I have... or just crazy!!
Sunday night the rain came again (as it has EVERY SINGLE NIGHT FOR 7 DAYS!!), so Eric had a brilliant (note the sarcasm here) idea to bring our grill into the garage & grill salmon and asparagus. He rolled it through my kitchen (trails of mud everywhere!!). It ended up working out perfectly which in itself is shocking! We let Bella put her swimsuit on & dance in the rain out front. Such a fun Sunday!
 
Really turned out perfectly!
Over a really awesome weekend!

Friday Loves - Hodge Podge

July 13, 2012


I've been all over the place lately & it's starting to show in my blog. Between family stuff, work stuff, & life stuff, my blog has taken a backseat for the summer. So if I'm not posting as often you know why. I'm also running out of things to love since I rarely get to a store or mall that doesn't have groceries in it. So please excuse the hodge podge today... let's begin:
 
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable
Okay so I've heard and heard about this in the blogosphere lately. You know me, I buy makeup like crazy, but never lipsticks/lip stains/gloss... blah. I am a Chapstick die hard girl. I go through a tube a month or so & love it. But I tried this in Cherish & I am now obsessed! It's super moisturizing, the color stays for quite a while, & it has a hint of a minty taste to it. To die for... LOVE

 
I am obsessed with a blog called Designer Bags & Dirty Diapers. She finds the cutest clothes, jewelry, etc. Well today she showed these fabulous necklaces she bought for $6!!!! I literally read it, clicked on the link she had and bought myself the black one! Can't wait to get it in!
 
Aquage Hydrating Mist
 
Confession...I highlight my hair... A LOT... and it gets dry... A LOT. I only ONLY use the Aquage Hydrating mist on it after I wash it & it's a miracle for my hair. It's pricey ($17 a bottle at my salon), but so very worth it. In fact, I'm almost out of it & will be buying a new bottle tonight when I get my highlights retouched!
 
Happy Friday Peeps!

Bestill My Heart

July 12, 2012


So last night I was plum exhausted once I got home from work & thankfully The Hubs was sweet enough to tell me to go to bed & get some rest. (Bless Him!) I was literally in bed falling asleep by 7:30!
 
Bella was so sweet & thought since I wasn't feeling well she would make me something. She got on The Hub's IPhone & went to an app about making bows with Minnie Mouse. She made me her favorite bow & then emailed it to me (with a little help!). She was so excited she wanted to show me right away!
 
So at 8 p.m. & Momma pretty much asleep, they came in & asked me to check my email. Now let me preface this by saying I HATE being woken up especially not feeling well, but somehow I knew it was important, so I checked my email with her...
 
 
 
How cute is this?! I've already printed it out to hang up in our room. So sweet!! I gave her big hugs & kisses and told her she's the sweetest little girl EVER! She's awesome at making me feel better!
I love my life...

Weekend Wrap Up

July 9, 2012


1st off, today is my Daddy's birthday!!! Happy birthday Dad, I love you more than words can describe! I hope you had a wonderful birthday weekend!!
 
This weekend we headed to Dallas to celebrate my Dad's birthday with the family. We got there late Friday night & just unpacked and relaxed.  Saturday morning, my mom's best friend, Carol, came over to see me & catch up. It was good to see her again, it's been too long!
 
Saturday night we took my Dad out for Italian. We had so much fun & were definitely the loudest, craziest people in the restaurant! We even sang him happy birthday without the server's help! It was so much fun seeing all of my family again & celebrating my Dad's birthday!
 
 
The Hubs & his huge pizza he got for himself! He ate it all... (with a little help!)

Dad & his grandkids! Bella, Austyn, & Aubrey

Sunday we drove back to Austin & ended up relaxing at the casa all day due to the rain. It was perfect!

Friday Loves - Necklaces

July 6, 2012


I know I missed last Friday's Loves & honestly I'm starting to run out of ideas of different things to love. Which is totally weird for me because there's never a time I don't see something online, in the store, that someone else is wearing, that I don't want. Guess it's the holiday & heat doing me in...
 
I have been on a necklace kick lately. I love wearing a tshirt or tank & dressing it up with an adorable necklace. Especially when I get that necklace super cheap! (Hello Forever 21!) Here are my loves this week:
 
JCrew Bubble Necklace
 
 
The JCrew Bubble Necklace... how I love thee... I also love that you can get a cute knockoff on Ebay!
 
Swirled Teardrops Necklace
 
 

I bought this at Forever 21 a few weeks back & love it. It's so cute and goes perfectly with a plain white tank or shirt.




Also from Forever 21 (told ya I adore them for cheap and cute jewelry!) This is perfect to dress up any outfit!

Happy Friday Peeps!

Wrap Up July 4th Style

July 5, 2012





We had the best 4th! Spending it grilling with family is my kind of day!
 
Wednesday morning, The Hubs had to mow because our dogs could barely see their way around our backyard. So, Bella & I played on my phone & I painted our toes!
 

Mommy & Bella after running around having a fun morning!
Matching our toesies for the 4th!

After we were all ready to go, we headed to Eric's parents house to celebrate with his family. Grandpa grilled a ton of food & luckily the weather was nice enough (and not scorching hot enough) that we sat on their patio catching up while Bella ran around with pinwheels.
After lunch we decided to hit the neighborhood pool....



Bella sporting her patriotic swimsuit!

It was somewhat busy, but Bella didn't mind. She got to slide down the big girl's slide at least 50 times while The Hubs waited at the bottom. The pool was 10 ft deep there, so he was pretty exhausted wading the whole time & trying to catch her.

After swimming, we all came back & lit sparklers. Bella loved it and kept showing us her sparkler skills! We ended up going home somewhat early since Momma had to be up at 4:30 a.m. the next morning! 


The Munoz Family & sparklers... kinda scary! Haha!



 
We hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!!

Happy 4th

July 3, 2012


I know for some lucky people today is their Friday, but not for anyone in our household... boo!! But we'll still be acting tomorrow like it is!
 
We will be celebrating our nation's birthday with all of Eric's family with a little bit of BBQ, fireworks, & the one thing everyone in this nation needs to celebrate the 4th... BEER! ;)
 
Hope everyone has a fun & safe 4th of July!!!
God Bless America!!

Weekend Wrap Up on a Monday!!

July 2, 2012


 
Omg, am I actually posting about our weekend on a Monday?! Heck yes! Probably because it was a pretty quiet low key weekend for us, so Momma was able to get a good night's sleep Sunday night...
 
Friday night I had girl's night to watch the Magic Mike movie. It was the 6 of us and hundred of loud screaming drunk women in the theater.... fun times. The movie was eh, but we all had a great time!
 
Girls night with Gia, Katherine, Jamie, me, Sonia, & Cansas
Saturday we ran a ton of errands, then got to see my soon to be niece or nephew on a 3D sonogram! I'm already in love with that baby & it's cheeks!!! So adorable!!

Saturday night we stayed in and watched the Olympic trials. Bella kept herself entertained playing dress up & getting us to act like we were in her class.

Bella Saturday morning dancing around to Stoney LaRue!
Sunday morning we went to church, then headed to the mall. Momma needed a few things, but by the time we left, our hands were full of shopping bags! Bella is in love with anything from the movie Brave, so we stopped into the Disney store & got her the Merida doll & one of the cute bear dolls.  On our way out they stopped us and asked if she wanted to play a Brave game. Guess what she said?!

At the Disney Store playing the Brave game!
Sunday night we stayed home since it was FINALLY raining & watched the gymnastics trials. Yeah we're huge Olympics people, so starting July 27th, we will be glued to the tv watching every single solitary sport showing on the Olympics. My poor DVR has no idea what's coming...

The Hubs & Bella before his daily 3 mile run!
