We got her!!! Yay, a visit from Janelle Strange to hang out with her cuzzies and see a bit of Texas. From New Zealand to Canada to Texas and back - she’s officially a world traveller. Woo hoo!!


Somebody built their work bench!!!  Woo hoo!  Four years in this house next month and we are finally working on crossing a few “to dos” off the list!!  Maybe a storage shed will pop up in the backyard and carerra marble countertops with a beautiful backsplash will magically appear in our kitchen…renovation fairy, please come visit!  

One can dream ;)

We dragged ourselves out of bed this morning… Of course one of the only mornings angel baby has ever decided to sleep in, to go cheer for Jackson at his soccer game! Well, Jackson couldn’t have cared less about the game going on around him, but angel baby was on fire as soon as the game was over and she could dribble the ball around the field! Kicking it around, diving for it, even doing some fancy back kicks as she ran over the ball (these may have been accidents, but it looked so awesome)!
She loved it so much, we are thinking about trying to get her onto Jackson’s team. They would be soooo cute! Although, there’s a chance they won’t pay attention to anyone but each other…ahhhh, we’ll risk it! ;)


Adorable little munchkins! We met Eva and her family at Eva’s school fall festival! She and Angel baby picked up right where they left off, flitting all around like little birds!! The girls had so much fun together, yaaay :)


Yesterday’s school fun!!


Our adorable little “school girl”! Isn’t she just the cutest?! Our little miracle baby. We still thank god every day for her and her little firecracker personality that kept her trucking and clawing for life since she was just a few cells :).

Makes me especially thankful on National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. We may have lost Bean, but through losing her we were placed with a high risk doctor that helped to save our angel baby. Bean will always be our little guardian angel and a piece of each of our hearts and souls.

Sending our love to all that have felt this heartbreak, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. Time helps, sadness fades and happiness and joy do return. The best way to honor them is to live…and live happy.

Smiles, good music, sunlight, initially some Xanax, windows rolled down and the wind in your hair as the tears run free. Doggy kisses and kitty hugs, and a husband that fields calls and protects your bubble. And when you haven’t been able to bring yourself to even get out of bed for a week, he buys your first piece of art as a couple. The most perfectly perfect piece of happiness and love to celebrate the tiny soul we had already loved so much. Thank you, my love. For being my rock. XOXO


Happy 70th birthday, Nandy!!! We love you so much!! :)

Wow, the memories! I just got added to a Harmony Alumni page on Facebook for past members of our high school’s ridiculously amazing, award winning show choir! Not to toot our own horn, but we were amazing - even in the Harmony, circa 70’s show choir costumes we were so known for!

It was ridiculously rigorous for a high school pursuit and our choir director was a bit more of a music stand and chair throwing drill sergeant than a cumbaya type choir director, but that is how she made us great. And although it was difficult…looking back - I wouldn’t change it now, not a thing.

I learned so much. It really forced me to grow as a person. I learned to stand up for myself and what I believe (even if that was by quitting my senior year to pursue theatre as a much less emotionally taxing creative outlet), what hard work was, and what it meant to be part of a winning team.

I wouldn’t be who I am today without having had this experience, these people in my life, this team, the feeling of accomplishment, the elation of winning - knowing the power of the stage and of commanding an audience with as little as a simple flick of your finger or lilt of voice.

All of these things bring me back to that time, to my friends - my Harmony family. They make me so thankful for the memories, for all I learned, and especially for shaping, bringing to the surface, and releasing the music in my heart and the confidence in my soul.

As I’m reminiscing and writing this post at 4am on a Tuesday, I just had a life-changing, lightbulb moment. I just realized…Cherrie Townsend gave me that.

She gave me the swagger in my walk. A deep-seated well of confidence - she made me great, even amazing at something. I owned that stage, I owned every note the came from my lips, every dance movement was perfection - this rooted a confidence in me that I may never have known otherwise, and I carry it with me forever. Thank you for that, Mrs. T.

Thank you to those who came before me and were my inspiration, thank you to the school and our parents for all of the amazing places we traveled for competition and as a choir family ( I will never forget Atlanta or NYC - thanks again for being a chaperone, mom!!). Thank you to Cherrie Townsend for being an amazing choir director - forcing me to push myself, forcing me to grow up and make difficult decisions, and most of all for the experience of being a part of something truly beautiful to behold.

I loved every person I sang with, they will each always carry a little part of my heart with them. And although I didn’t always love the method of getting there - we became a true family.

I did and always will, love and crave the feeling of creating something truly beautiful. When individuals come together to form something even greater as a whole. When voices melt into a perfect harmony - it’s magical.

These memories will last a lifetime and I still believe this moment in my life was a defining part of who I am today. Love all yall - thanks for the memories!!


Better late than never…after furniture shopping Saturday with nandy, we got back home just in time to carb the last twenty minutes of the annual Hairy Man Festival by our house!! For FREE! Woot woot! All angel baby ever truly cares about is the petting zoo - and they welcomed us into that just before closing at 5pm without having purchased tickets too! A little rain and being closing time was perfect timing for us - free entrance, free petting zoo, a little swing time and then kicked out just at dinner time. Perfecto!


Furniture shopping for nandy!!! We had so much fun yesterday looking around with nandy to outfit their new home with some places to sit!! We hit four hands and oh my - as always, LOVE so many things in there…it’s a good thing my house is already full. Just sayin.

AND we may have found a contender for a new couch set at Norwalk for the Doverspike’s! So many fun bright happy fabrics and patterns in there!! Mickie, our very helpful sales associate said they’re working hard to capture the younger market - it’s working, Mickie! It’s working! Now if they can just magically whip up some of that awesome fake suede-ey soft couch fabric in black for nandy and grandy, we’ve got a winner!

Ohhhh and that random calico-lookin side table? I loooonged for an almost exact side table set that I couldn’t afford 4 years ago when we moved into our house. I’d found it at the Louis Shanks outlet and as its a temporary outlet, it was gone before I could save and buy them. As we pulled in to furniture row, what do I see???? Louis Shanks outlet!!! And I may have dropped to my knees and whispered “oh my god, you’re here” when I saw this little friend. AND they have a matching one in Houston they said they’d bring up and sell me for $199 each. Oh Louis. You drive a hard bargain. I walked out empty handed, but you never know…fate may have brought us back together for a reason ;)
