What a Weekend

November 19, 2018

This past weekend has been one of the best we have had lately. 
We got to celebrate family, friends, and our beloved Longhorns.

We started Saturday off celebrating Thanksgiving early with Eric's family.
It's been a while since we all have been together, and it was great catching up and laughing over lunch!

After we left, we headed downtown to watch the Longhorns vs. Iowa State game.
We haven't been to a football game in years (like 20 but whose counting?!) and it was Belle's 1st game to ever go to! To make it more special, it was Senior night, and the 500th game played at DKR Memorial Stadium. 

The weather was perfect, the Longhorns won big,
and we got to see the last game the seniors will play at DKR! 
Really an amazing night!

The most amazing part was when they played Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" and the whole crowd lit up their phones and sang along. The music stopped when the game started back up and the crowd kept singing. It was a magical moment!

This picture doesn't do it justice, but seriously Google about it and watch the videos!
We all 3 went home exhausted and beaming with light!

Sunday I got to help host one of my closest friend's baby shower. 
If you have been reading my blog for years, you know we do showers a little differently with my friends. We have brunch and pedicures instead of the normal baby shower. 
This one didn't disappoint and it was incredible to see Sonia glowing!

Such a fun weekend overall.

I don't think I will get another post out this week, 
so I would like to wish everyone a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
I hope everyone gets to celebrate it with family and has a wonderful day.

What a Weekend!

November 5, 2018

This weekend was a whirlwind.

We had a fabulous wedding in Victoria, TX - Belle had one of her last games, and we spent Sunday night relaxing, pitching, and catching up.

Eric and I went to his cousins wedding in South Texas Saturday.

We had such a great time catching up with family!
We got to get all dressed up and dance the night away!
Congrats Ojay & Diana!

Belle stayed with her friend, so she didn't have to miss her game.
It was one of her lasts games, so we let her stay.

She ended up getting her Fall Softball medal. 
She was so happy, and they won the game!
We actually watched the whole game and cheered her on from afar.
These girls have made such a great team and are 11-4 for the season, 
with 1 game left to go.

Seriously, I don't know what we will do without softball every night and weekend.
We will miss these girls (especially Belle, who is already missing them) 
and am so excited for the Spring season!

After we picked Belle up Sunday, we immediately went and practiced pitching.
She really is working her tail off at getting better.
And you can tell. She has more confidence, and takes her time between pitches.
Plus getting faster and more accurate! 
We are truly proud of her.

Tomorrow is her team's last game of the season.
To say we are sad to see it end is an understatement.
But we will take this season and remember it with joy!

Hello November

November 1, 2018

I know my name and blog name are both related to the summer time,
but we are actually in my absolute favorite season.

I love Autumn! 
I love the changing of the trees,
that special feeling that Christmas is coming soon,
spending more time with family, and overall, the weather!

We have some of the best Falls in Austin!
The weather stays in the 60's, and usually (hopefully!) is sunny!

Belle and I both enjoy the changing of the trees,
the falling of the leaves,and she loves jumping in a leaf pile, right after Daddy makes it!

I could go on and on,
but I welcome November with open arms.
I can't wait to get into the Thanksgiving and Christmas Spirit at our house!
