May Road Trip: Red Canyon

In May of this year I went on a road trip with my sister-n-law and father in his RV, where we were later joined by my brother. My sister-n-law had a convention in Utah, I asked to tag along since I knew they would be hitting up some of the best National Parks on the way back. Our biggest challenge was bringing our little ones along, but they did great and we couldn't be happier with how they handled some of the longer days on the road. 

We did a total of three weeks and stopped at most of the national parks in Utah and finished off with the Grand Canyon. I can't wait to go back to some of these sites when Harrison gets older.

A Walk To The Park

Living in Houston has been amazing these last ten years, but of those of you who follow the news know the devastating events that have happened during Hurricane Harvey. We were affect by the storm, roughly five feet in "#thebachelorpadfixerupper" (the hashtag I've been using on Instagram for our current home), but we were actually very lucky because we did evacuate before water entered and have family to stay with in the area. Because this was a "temp" home and a two story most of our things were in storage or on the upper floor so we didn't lose much. So many people were affected by this storm and lost everything and it is truly heartbreaking. Now people are just trying to fix what they have and on top of the physical demands people are now having to cope with the mental challenges of their losses. It has however, been amazing seeing so many people come together and help each other out.

Baby Harrison's Birth Story

Today I thought I would share Harrison's birth story. I know it is delayed, but taking care of a newborn seems to have taken up a lot of my time lately. :) Before I share the details of his debut, let me back up a bit to my last months of pregnancy.

Lots of Big Updates!!!!

So lots of things to catch y'all up on. Right after I gave birth in the beginning of the year I started to study for a pretty tough eight hour exam that engineers can take, that is available twice a year (April and October), to become a professional engineer. Well I took the exam in April and got my results in the end of May and I passed!!!!!! So yessssss this girl has her PE in Mechanical Engineering Thermal and Fluids!!!!! Well on top of studying and raising a new born we decided to list our house in March, which at that time made it exactly three years we were in our home. So you see why I have been so absent on the blog this year a lot has been going on, but let me continue about the listing and sale of our Prince house.

House Life According to My Iphone

Sorry guys that I have been m.i.a. lately I have a lot to catch y'all up on, like I had a baby and almost a month early. I will post the birth story later and I have a few additional baby post to follow that, but in the mean time I thought I would share some photos of my home life according to my iphone. 

Ha and these photos are not an exact representation of what my home looks like day to day, especially with a newborn, well almost two months now. The house is not perfect, but I do work hard on keeping it as tidy and neat as I can since it makes me feel like I have something I can control on a day to day basis. This being my first child I do feel like I am on a learning curve and everyday I am learning something new and things constantly change so he likes to keep me on my toes.  Hope y'all enjoy the rest of the week!

A Little Christmas Decor Around The House

This year for the Christmas holidays I was late putting up the decor because I didn't want any Christmas decorations clashing with the baby shower held at our house at the beginning of the month. Therefore, I didn't go all out like I usually do plus I didn't want to over extend myself being well into my third trimester with baby Harrison.  That being said I decided to combine some of the baby shower decor, like the flower arrangements, into this year's Christmas decoration. This was easy to do since I stayed with the same color scheme as last year with the golds and whites. Overall I am so happy with the outcome, but my favorite additions this year definitely has to be the custom wood name plates I got made for the two newest stockings, one for Winston (our pup) and one for Harrison (our son-to-be). Hope y'all enjoy 2016 Christmas tour!

My Baby Shower Hosted At Our House

On Sunday my mother and mother-n-law hosted a baby shower for yours truly at my house for family and close friends. The weather wasn't pretty (cold and wet), but we knew in advanced so we were prepared and setup the party all inside. It ended up working out perfectly, but obviously it wasn't the outside bohemian feel I was going for like the inspirations photos in the previous post. I stuck with a lot of pink, creams, and whites to give the shower an airy feel. I also got to pull out and use a lot of decor that I bought for our wedding and use dining/entertaining pieces I have collected over the years.
