I have a new obsession and for me it's BIG...
Color Whisper Lipstick by Maybelline

It's a lipstick with a good hint of color, but omg it's like wearing Chapstick! If you read my blog at all, you know I'm a die hard Chapstick wearer. I actually haven't owned a lipstick in years (aka college timeframe) because I always love the way Chapstick lasts forever and keeps my lips soft. Well Color Whisper lipsticks do THE SAME THING! I'm ah-maz-ed! I bought the color about called Bare to be Bold & it's almost the same color as my natural lips but with a hint of something more. LOVE!
I was not asked or paid to review this, I bought this on my own & ended up loving it!

Weekend Wrap Up - Birthday Style

Bella's 6th Birthday Party was a success! Beiber Fever was in full effect & she had a blast!! We had it at Jump Street in Cedar Park this year & all the kids had so much fun bouncing, swinging, etc.

6 years ago tomorrow my life changed forever. My heart grew bigger than I ever thought possible, and I realized the reason God put me on this Earth..

She is the best thing that's happened to me & Eric. We can't imagine living without her & her voice, smile, & sparkling brown eyes make my heart melt.

She's fun loving, beautiful little girl who loves soccer, gymnastics, basketball, & playing with her friends all afternoon.

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl.

Mommy & Daddy love you with our whole hearts.

She's My Person

January 24, 2013

I talk a lot about my family & things going on in our lives, but rarely talk about any of my friends on here. I have a few best friends that I talk to on a daily basis, 2 amazing sisters that I love & trust dearly, but there is only one girl that I can call "My Person".
Melissa & I have been the best of friends for over 16 years now. We met in high school and ended up being joined at the hip for the next year or two. I followed her to Austin after high school graduation & stayed close when she moved to Cali.
Now we live within 5 minutes of each other, we're both happily married with little girls that love to play together & husbands who get along great.
But here's the thing... life gets in the way. We're both crazy busy, so we don't see each other very often, but when we do, it's like we just talked yesterday. We can have hours and hours of conversation like we never left off. She's my person. She's who, when anything goes horribly wrong, I can call at midnight and she'll come right over (and vice versa!).

I hope everyone has their "person" because it's definitely someone you don't want to live without...


Weekend Wrap Up

January 23, 2013

(Sorry it's Wednesday and I'm just now posting about our weekend, but Blogger has not been liking me lately!)
My 3 day weekend was pretty nice overall. Gorgeous weather, lots of birthday parties, family time, and only a little fighting with my daughter who even though she turns 6 on Saturday acts like she is 15!
She had 2 birthday parties back to back Saturday & had so much fun at both of them. This party was for my friend's daughter, Hannah, who turned 2. Needless to say, Bella was definitely the oldest kid there, but she loved it and did really great with the younger kids!

After all the parties were done, we decided to have family night & go to Olive Garden for dinner. I tried the drink about called a Skinny Lemon Strawberry Martini & it was delicious!! Definitely ordering it next time we go!

Sunday the high was in the low 70's so we enjoyed the day outside! Bella rode her bike, played with the neighbors, & just had a blast!

All week has been in the mid to uppers 70's here and sunny! We are loving the tank top/flip flop weather we're having! Hopefully it's sunny where you are too!

Here a video of Bella from Saturday night. After we got back from dinner we did a little Wii dancing! Bella loves the song & dance above!

Spring Shirts I Heart

January 14, 2013

The weather here this week is horrible. Rainy, cold, blah. We get maybe 2 days of sun, then the rain comes back. So to make my mood a little happier I go online shopping! I love looking at cute spring time shirts that are must haves for my closet! My favorite 3 right now are:
 Pocket Popover Shirt
I love the hearts on this top. So cute and perfect for Spring!
AE Boho Top
I am in love with this top. So cute love the colors and the back is adorable!

AE Eyelit Top
So cute especially with a bright colored tank underneath!

What's your favorite Spring tops?

Family Bowling

January 6, 2013

Let me start the blog post by saying I officially SUCK at bowling... bad.  But Bella loves to bowl & we thought it was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.  
Mama & Bella bowling
We went to Main Event and found out there was an hour and a half wait for a lane... I'm sorry but waiting around to bowl is not my idea of fun. So we ended up at Highland Lanes which btw is not as cheap as I once remember, but had open lanes so why not?! 

The Hubs & Bella
We ended up playing a game and a half before little one started shouting about starving... people looking at us thinking we are horrible parents who would rather bowl then feed our poor starving child... game over. 

One highlight is that they both kicked the crap out of me at bowling. Fun time people... fun times.

January 3, 2013

We had our 3rd annual NYE party at our house & decided to set up a photo booth this year. It was so much fun & the pics turned out awesome! (Some not as good as others as the night went along! Ha!) Here's a few from the night!
Sandra, Lisa, & me - my favorite of the night!

Celebrating our 13th NYE together

The entire party just after midnight!

We had so much fun, but decided this will be the last year. We want to really start watching the ball drop with Bella now that she will be 6 & can stay up a little later than 8!

Until I can get on here and actually post a really long, amazing post, let me leave you with this...
