25 Weeks

We are seeing some signs of fall around Texas. Usually I’m not too excited about summer ending but with the pending arrival of baby number two (we still haven’t decided on a name) we are looking forward to it a little more! While I love the holiday season I’m just not a huge fan of cold weather unless we get to play in the snow! I am now 25 week along and starting to feel pretty large! We FINALLY picked[Read more]

The Big News

I’ve been meaning to post this all week but I’ve been having problems logging into my blog. On Jace’s birthday, way back on April 30th we found out that Jace was going to be a BIG BROTHER! We wanted to announce the big news sooner but wanted to tell our family first. We will be posting an announcement on Saturday so if you are friends with me on Facebook please wait to post anything. So that is the reason that[Read more]

What Goes Around Comes Around…

After we lost Hershey last week we tried our best to have a fun weekend. We didn’t want to be stuck in the house with his medicines all over the counters, collar and leashes hanging by the door, or his empty kennel sitting in the corner by the back door. I’m still slowly picking up his things and putting them away but my eyes go often to that empty corner. We took Jace to Schlitterbahn for a few hours Friday[Read more]


This past week has been horrible. We are exhausted and really hoping this coming week brings better days. On the 4th of July we went to visit family and watch fireworks. When we got home late that night we found that our 4 year old dachshund Hershey couldn’t move his back legs or tail. After 6 hours at the emergency pet hospital we found out that he had ruptured a disk in his spine and even with surgery he only[Read more]

Letter To My Son On His 2nd Birthday

I’ve been wanting to write this for a few days now but we have been so busy. It is a few days past your birthday but I wanted to share it anyway. Plus we are still singing you happy birthday every day since you enjoy it so much! Jace I can not believe how fast these two years have gone by! I hope one day you can read this and understand for yourself what it means. You are truly amazing[Read more]

How Did Two Years Go By So Fast?

Jace turns two this Thursday. Saturday we had a birthday party for him at the park. He had a lot of fun. I stayed up late Friday making a minion birthday cake for him. At first I had planned on making a Lego cake but we changed it at the last minute. Jace saw a minion piñata at Target and freaked out so we decided to change his theme. Unfortunately the cake did not survive the 1.5 hour trip so[Read more]

Easter 2015

Nothing super interesting has been going on. We are currently in the middle of a lot of little projects around the house. I have a huge amount of toys scattered around my living room so I finally decided that we need to fix up Jace’s room. Right now we have a desk and computer set up in there which we will be moving to the guest room. The guest room which is full of flea market stuff is being sorted[Read more]

5k Fun

Nothing too exciting has been going on. Yesterday Patrick and I did a 5k. The first mile was easier than I thought it was going to be. Unfortunately around the 2 mile marker Jace decided that he didn’t want to be in the stroller anymore so we took turns carrying him. It was pretty slow but somehow Patrick ended up getting 5th in his division and I ended up getting 3rd in mine. After we all came home and took[Read more]

Sick Toddler = No Fun

If you follow me on Twitter you probably already know Jace has been sick. It was a rough week. Last Tuesday Jace woke up from his nap with a fever. Advil brought it down but by Wednesday evening it had gotten much worse. Still had a fever with Advil and I started alternating it with Tylenol. He was crying, holding his ears, and wouldn’t play. Most of the day was spent laying in my lap. Thursday at the doctors, we[Read more]

Zoo Fun and Potty Training

Well I’m happy to report that we are FINALLY are feeling better. Except for some annoying leftover coughing everyone is feeling better. We got out of the house on Saturday and took Jace to the zoo. Jace loved it and he had a ton of fun walking around since we decided to leave the stroller at home.  He did pretty good except for one time when he decided that he would rather sit on the ground then walk while holding[Read more]
