As I was just about to write a post, I see my page like this. WHAT IN THE WORLD HAPPENED TO MY BLOG?! I can't express how freaking pissed off I am right now, and am taking it as a sign that my blogging days are over. All my images, my header that I designed and flippin paid for, is kaput.....

Please cross your fingers for me and pray to little 8 pound baby Jesus that I can figure this sucker out.

End rant about stupid blog.

That is all for now.

My Sweet Boy

Just a few of my favorite pictures lately. Again, blogger hasn't been posting some of my posts :( Especially from my phone. Argh!

I know I'm his mom, but I think he may be getting cuter :)

Toddler Yoga?

Davis does a mean downward dog! Haha :) I try and stretch in the morning before we go to the gym, and I think he's picked up a few things. Check out his moves!

What's The Story, Morning Glory?

As of lately, I haven't been blogging as much as I would like, but not to fear. I'm still here! Here's a random, not in any order, like you care, update for ya :)

-Davis finished Soccer Tots 2 weeks ago, and I think he's ready to go pro. Watch out David...Davis is on board! He absolutely LOVED it. He did have a little problem when he was supposed to TAP the ball, and he would want to kick it full force. What can I say? He was in all the way.

-Michael is still absolutely obsessed (and I mean obsessed) with CrossFit. He is now in the process of building a CrossFit gym in the garage. This should be interesting. He constantly has huge blisters (like don't touch me with those things) on his hands, that now he drives like an eccentric old woman. Awesome.

-My work is going great. I absolutely love it and beyond enjoy what I'm doing. I'm hoping that things stay the way they are going, and just pray that it stays consistant. I've been doing 'Happy Hours' every few weeks at my home with other vendors to try and cross market and meet new people. I've been offering $15 off tans and free add ons when people bring a friend. I have to say, the cocktail I made last week was fabulous. Although, I didn't get to drink any since I was working. What?! Can you believe that? If you're in the Houston area, you should check it out!

-Houston is still going great. Better than great. Besides it being hotter than the devil's asshole here, I LOVE it. I have met some of the best people here that I just adore. I have a nice little circle of friends, girls for networking, and have made some really close friends already. I'm still loving living in the city, (even though I'm still shocked about it) and have to say adios to the suburbs for life. No bueno. There is so much to do here, especially in our area. Whether it's with Davis or places for just Michael and I to go. We have truly loved every moment here. Plus, who doesn't like riding their bike down the street for a glass of wine?! And dinner? And around the area?! I'm raising both hands, because I love it! :)

My Casa...finally

We've been all settled in our home for about a month now, and I couldn't be more excited with it. Its my dream home x 100. Love, love, love and a little drool over it. I think I'm even more proud of it because I got to pick everything that went in here. I just crossed my fingers and hoped Michael liked everything I chose. And then figured, well, too late! He'll have to learn to love it :)
Here's a few pictures of downstairs. And yes, the house was built to look old. Another reason why I drool over it.
Also, that's a small wine bar. The house had my calling card. :)

Happy Sunday, everyone. Have a great day!

Terrific Tuesday

A boy and his best friend.

I absolutely love this picture. Davis just can't get enough of Dexter. He wakes up calling for him. They eat lunch together. They play together. Davis even gets mad at him like he's a person. Together, they are beyond precious. Anything to do with Dexter, Davis is on it. If new food gets put in the bowl without Davis helping, you bet your bottom it gets poured back out so that Davis can help. How dare I get the food. When the can for Dexter's treats is being opened, Davis will ruuuuun through the house, screaming, 'noooooooooo mama!' and stick his hand out. He has to give him the treat. I know! What was I thinking?!?
These two absolutely melt my heart :)

Birthday Month....WW

I'm officially old. That's all I'm going to say. Just old. My birthday month (haha) will continue, these are pics so far. Since I'm on my phone, they are dinner with my dad, birthday celebration with friends, and LMFAO concert. That's right :)

Why the pictures end up like this is beyond me. Anyone else have this issue?? Argh!

FYI, my friend made my dress again. I know a few of you contacted her for your custom dress. Hope you love it!! She's amazing!! :)

Getting Settled

Unpacking we will go.....

Slowly, but surely, we are getting settled in. I feel like I haven't done much, but when I look at the mound of packing paper and boxes, I know that I put that stuff somewhere. Now if only someone would magically make them disappear! So far, this is my progress. At least the kitchen is done and I have somewhat accomplished something! More pictures to come....after the genie takes away the boxes!

Davis Is A Soccer Tot

First of all, I'm posting from my phone, and not understand the new version. So if my pictures all show up at the bottom, which I'm sure they will, then I have no clue what's going on!

Davis started Soccer Tots last week and I'm not sure if he likes it more, or me. It's a parent participation class, so I really loved watching him go crazy on a soccer ball. Watch out David Beckham! The class is about listening and following directions, and having fun. I haven't signed him up for any tournaments yet! :) I have to say, I think my kid is a natural. Of course since I'm his mom, I'm going to think this. I'll be looking into scholarships!
Some of the activities they did included the coach rolling a large hula hoop and the child running as fast as they could to get it; running through hoops and kicking a ball into the goal; (Davis rocked at that one!) and different games with cones.
Our next class is this Friday (which is also moving day!! Yay!!) and I'm so excited!

Mother's Day Recap

Mother's day was yesterday, and I hope everyone had a blessed and wonderful day. I had such an amazing day. Time with my family and time to myself. Perfect amounts of both. We started off going to church, where Davis thinks we are going for an extra long story time. As I go to grab crayons out of my purse, this is what I almost handed him...

In my defense, I save corks and still hope to make a wreath. When that will actually happen, I'm not too sure :)
Michael and Davis also surprised me with these beyond gorgeous flowers.
I think they did pretty good!

Off to brunch after mass and I think the food was like a party in my mouth. I haven't found one place here yet that I wouldn't go back to. Plus it's nice that they aren't all chains, and local establishments.
By the time we got back, it was Davis' nap time and Michael had to work. What?!? I should go check out the thrift stores and consignment places? Okay, I'll go! My friend Melissa and I went for hours, door to door, to antique stores and thrift stores. It was sooooo much fun!

What did you do?? Hope you had an amazing day!

Mama Got A Vacation

Alert the press!! I just got back from a...wait for it...girl trip!! Oh, yeah, baby. You read right! I, a mom to a crazy 2.5 year old, flew the coop. I can't express enough how wonderful it was. A friend of mine was going to San Francisco to visit her family and asked if I thought I could make it. With 5 days to plan, I thought, okay, I HAVE  to make this work! And well worth it. I met up with my amazing friend, (remember rockin dress my friend made me for New Years) and went to a Bebe fashion show. Let me tell you, the dress I wore that night made me feel like a million bucks!!

Yes, that dress on the right has straws all over it. I swear, only Danielle could make a dress with straws on it, and it turn out fabulous!

Just a little AMAZING!

Kinda think you should get a dress made for yourself! You know you want to :)

It was a quick trip, but so much fun. There was a lot of shopping, drinking, shopping, drinking, and repeat. I think I may have slept a total of 8 hours the entire time and have also never downed so many Red Bulls in my life. I don't drink Red Bull, people. But I had to keep up and pretend I still got it, so we became one on this trip.
I splurged and bought these for my kitchen. Don't be jealous. I'm open about my pill popping.
(Seriously, no, I didn't buy them)

Just because I was California, didn't mean that it was going to be warm. I seriously froze my butt off!!! I also did not pack right...which meant more shopping. Oh, darn!

What?? You don't own a pair of wooden Dutch shoes? That's crazy talk!

As much fun as I had though, I was really excited to come home and see this sweet face!! Okay, and I'll admit, I can't hang like I used to. Does that mean I'm getting old? Don't answer that....
