The Rest of the Texas Trip

Posted in: Us- Nov 28, 2012 2 Comments

We took so many pictures that it would take me a few more weeks to sort through and do them day by day, but I wanted to post some of the faves from the rest of our time visiting family in TX over Thanksgiving break. Burke got real excited when he saw the big giant […]

Hanging with the Family back in Katy

Posted in: Us- Nov 21, 2012 2 Comments

We got back to Katy on Tuesday afternoon, and not too long after, Erika and the cousins came over to see us.  We didn’t get to see them when we made it into town, and they were anxious to see “Burkey”. Erika brought over their train toys and Burke had a great time playing with […]

{another} 24 Hours in ATX

Lucky for Mommy and Daddy, Burke slept in a bit due to the time change, and way late bedtime.  He got himself reacquainted with Clyde first thing.  Not so sure that Clyde was all that excited about the reunion, but Burke was giddy.  He looked for the “mauw mauw” and gave him lots of love […]

Leaving on a Jet Plane

We headed to Texas for Thanksgiving this afternoon, and decided to fly this time again. We knew it might be a little trickier, since I didn’t have much (any) lap space for Burke, and we’d be traveling with lots of stuff….but we made it! We borrowed this cute little monkey backpack from one of our […]

A $3.99 Goodwill Revamp for Emily

Emily came over to hang out with me on Friday night for a bit, and walked in with some of her latest Goodwill treasure finds.  If anyone can find a gem there, it’s Emily.  She was so proud of her $3.99 purchase as it has all the right pockets for all her things, is the […]

Just a little bit of sewing…

So, I’ve been on a little bit of a sewing kick lately.  Here are a few of the projects that I’ve completed. Our chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild participated in the QuiltCon Block Challenge, and needed some extra block to complete the quilts that we’ll be challenged to put together for the conference in […]

Well, it’s November, and it’s the 7th, which means I turned 36 today. I’ve been thinking about all the things that I’m thankful for, and so I decided to combine what a lot of people call the month of Thanks, with how old I’m turning, and share 36 things that I’m thankful for. 1. My […]

Ma & Pa in Santa Barbara!

Betty and Bruce got in real late on Thursday night to spend a few days visiting with their favorite Californian grandson, and his parents of course too! Burke’s been so spoiled with having his grandparents visiting this month – lucky boy! On Friday night we ate a quick dinner and made it over to the […]

Our own little LATT remodel

Posted in: Us- Nov 05, 2012 5 Comments

I’d been on the search for a little table for Burke but didn’t want to spend a lot of money….especially considering that this was going to be a table for a toddler.   I even had a few friends send me listings that they’d seen on Craigslist, but none of them struck my fancy.  Then […]

Dear Burke,

Dear Burke, Well, I knew it would happen.  You turned 18 months.  It seems like such a milestone….one and a half years.  You’re now on your way to being closer to two than a baby.  I’ve been looking back at pictures from a year ago, and I can’t believe how much you’ve changed.  It’s all […]
