Ever Heard of Maypole?!

May 25, 2016

Last night Bella had her 3rd grade Maypole performance.
I had never heard of this before, and luckily I wasn't the only one!
Most of the parents were wondering what it was!

It was super cute they sang songs, then the girls weaved around the pole, and the boys went afterwards and undid it. 
It's apparently a sign of Spring. 
Who knew?!

But the main reason I'm posting is because I got my baby girl into a dress!!

It's a Maypole Miracle!

And of course I made her take pictures with me!

This is after we got home from her performance 
(which I might add she did awesome at!)
We're tickling her to get her to smile for the camera!

Weekend Wrap Up

May 23, 2016

This was such an awesome weekend!
My best friend got engaged the day before her birthday,
and we got to celebrate with a girl's wine day!
Happy Birthday to the 2 girls in the middle... Amanda & Sonia!
We all had the best time at Flat Creek Estates Winery!

Cansas & I at the wine tasting!
Love this girl, we don't get to hang out nearly as much as we should!

Cansas and I with both birthday girls!
It was so much fun & I'm so glad I got to celebrate with both of them

The bride-to-be is in the middle. 
Sonia & I have been besties for over 10 years now 
and I can't wait to be a part of her wedding!

Sunday we had a full family day.
The weather was rainy all morning but right when the sun came out, we rushed to the pool!
We didn't get to stay long because it was pretty packed.
Apparently everyone had the same idea!

Last picture is Bella and I Saturday morning.
She was so excited to go with Daddy to see Angry Birds! 

Happy Monday!
Countdown is on for SPI!!

Waiting For SPI

May 19, 2016

As of this week, we officially have 2 weeks left until South Padre Island!
We have gone with Eric's family every year since Bella was young, 
and every one of us look forward to going again!

We always end up having the absolute best time and love every minute!

Bella especially loves it! 
She gets to hang out with her cousins, Aunt & Uncle, & Grandparents while swimming and having a blast all day/night long!

The 1st night we get there, Eric's parents watch the kiddos and let the 4 of us go out.
We have a great time and always end up on the beach around midnight catching up and laughing like crazy!

So here is to the next 2 weeks!
May it fly by and get us on the beach 
(and out of all this rain!)

Weekend Wrap Up - Rained Out Edition

May 16, 2016

Well this weekend started off right and kinda ended as bummer...
Stupid rain we've been getting in Austin this month is ruining everyone's plans!
(Baby violin would start playing now!)

So Friday night we went out with our best friends and our kiddos to Mellow Mushroom. It's a yummy pizza place that has amazing drinks & Bella loves the atmosphere. 
It was a perfect evening, except for one thing...
The husband's pizza never came out.
Kellie & Kenzie got theirs, 
Bella & I got ours...
No Dad's pizza.
The manager came to let us know it was running a few minutes behind, so no worries. 
About 45 minutes later... still no pizza.
He then came back and proceeded to tell us the cook dropped it on the floor getting it out of the oven. Wow...
So they ended up giving us a NEW & FREE pizza plus a free dessert for the wait!
Here's the missing pizza in all it's glory!


Saturday morning, we went with one of Bella's best friend's family back to Fiesta Texas. (Anyone keeping track, this would make the 3rd weekend in a row we've gone!)
We got on the Boomerang right when it opened and the kids loved it!

We made our way over to the Batman ride & got all the way to the front, when they proceeded to tell us they are shutting ALL roller coasters down due to oncoming storms.
So we left the line, walked around for around 3 hours playing games and trying to wait out the storms, until we finally gave up and went home. 
The kids won a ton of cool prizes...

And even the dad's got in on the fun!

Hey who says you can't have fun in the rain?!
We ended up doing a little shopping to cheer Bella up once we finally made it back to Austin.

Sunday I got to enjoy my Mother's Day gifts...
A one-hour massage & a pedicure!
And nope no pictures taken because lez be honest, I was relaxing way too much to think about taking a picture!

Happy Monday!

Weekend Wrap Up

May 9, 2016

Yes I'm blogging on Monday night, mainly because I didn't have a second to myself this whole day until right now...
The life of Mom's!

Okay so this weekend we essentially did last weekend over again...
Yep we headed to Fiesta Texas again!
This time with friends to celebrate Andy's Birthday!
The 6 of us had a blast! 
Bella loved riding with all different people the whole time!
Sonia & I have been best friends for almost 10 years now!
She's such a great friend & I'm so glad we got to hang out all day!
We finished the party off at the waterpark there & Bella loved the huge water slides!
She even won a hat...
Oh yeah she is styling now!!

Saturday night we went to eat with our friends, then came home and fell asleep by 10! #werepartyanimals

Sunday was my 10th Mother's Day! 
We ended up going out to breakfast, then running errands. 
We spent the afternoon at Eric's parents swimming & catching up.
Such a fun weekend & can't wait for this coming weekend!

Today and tomorrow Bella has STAAR testing at school. 
I sent her well wishes before school today & took her to Sonic afterwards as a treat for doing the math portion. She seemed to think she did well, so we are hoping she's right!

Last thing... T minus 4 weeks until the beach!!!
I am in pure workout mode like a beast!
Happy Monday/Almost Tuesday!

My 3 Summer Essentials

May 3, 2016

Anyone who knows me, knows I absolutely love the summer time. 
Yes I was named after it & it really does fit me to a T! 
Along with summer time comes summer essentials.
These 3 things I need almost daily to get through the summer...

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer - Holy crap this bronzer smells amazing! It's like being on a coconut beach and I love it! The color is awesome, blends extremely well, and just makes my morning smell amazing!

Aussie 3 Minute Miracle - Die Hard fan here. Seriously have been using this deep conditioner for years and years. It makes my hair so soft & I bring 2 bottles of it when we go to the beach. One for me & one for Bella. It gets our hair so soft after sun & salt water, it's a must for all summer long!

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch - This is my absolute favorite lotion for after being in the sun all day. It smells heavenly & really helps with sunburns. It has a great cooling effect and I use it even when I haven't been out in the sun all day!

Weekend Wrap Up

May 2, 2016

First off, I apologize over and over for not blogging at all lately.
Life has been crazy & blogging has gone to the back burner. 
I don't see this changing a whole lot soon, but I'll try to blog as much as possible.

This weekend was such a blast for us!
We decided to become gold members at Six Flags & used it for the 1st time Saturday!

We were in line to get our season passes, and it was already getting hot out...

Our 1st ride (and Bella's 1st ever coaster!) was the Road Runner.
They took a picture of us during it and we had to buy...
Her face here is priceless!!
Notice my hang holding hers during it because she was so scared during the entire ride!

We ended up riding several rides and can't wait to go back this weekend!

This was the only ride I didn't get on... 
scared the crud out of me, so I took video and pictures of them on in instead!

Look at that beast!!

Sunday we ran a ton of errands, then met all of our neighbors at the pool.
There were 14 kids and 6 parents (of 6 of those kids)...
To say we were outnumbered is an understatement!
Luckily I only had to yell at them once! Ha!

After the pool we all went to a neighbor's house and bbq'd hotdogs for them.
It was such a fun weekend and I can't wait for the next one! 
Happy Monday!
