Sunshine Glaze: DFW Bloggers Girls Night Out

Last night I got together with some of my favorite local DFW bloggers for an event at Sunshine Glaze Creative Studio in Southlake. This group of girls is so much fun and it’s always great to see familiar faces and meet new ones!

We all got to pick a letter out and then we added glass mosaic on top. Now I have to grout it and I’ve never grouted so I hope it turns out okay! Sunshine Glaze was such a fun place and I’ll definitely be going back to make fun goodies with Connor.

 Making my letter “B”.  It’s good…because it works for both my first and last name 😉

Beautiful DFW blogger gals… sweet!  Can’t wait to see you all again soon!

Tom’s of Maine Whole Foods: Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias,  Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. D7K_0601-2

My life is pretty crazy these days. I know…I know…I just have ONE kid! But I also work full-time and am a wifey and manage a household. That includes laundry (it’s amazing how much laundry 3 people create) & putting meals on the table. Can I just have a drive-thru window at my house please? When it comes to taking care of my family I only want the best.  Of course you can’t always have everything you want, but you can do the BEST you can to provide it!

We shop at Whole Foods because they have the freshest produce and also offer personal care items- like anti-perspirant, that we use every day that don’t contain artificial colors, flavors, fragrances, or preservatives.

When I stop to think about the world we are living in right now sometimes it freaks me out.  I can count on all my fingers how many people are going through cancer right now or are struggling with a debilitating illness.  Of course you can’t ALWAYS prevent these things from happening, but you can help yourself and help our planet.  My son’s future is very important to me.  I know what I’m doing right now will impact him, as well as everyone else generations down the road.

One product I really LOVE from Whole Foods is Tom’s of Maine deodorant.  It’s a long-lasting deodorant that contains all natural ingredients.  It’s also aluminum-free, which I prefer.


The Fresh Apricot scent is amazing!  It’s so refreshing for summertime…you just HAVE to try it!  They also offer a men’s version as well leaving them #FreshNaturally. D7K_0612


It get SO hot here in Texas in the summertime.  I need something that is going to fit my busy lifestyle and keep me from getting pit stains girrrrrrlTom’s of Main helps me not to sweat my armpits off and stay dry all day long!  Because honestly….I have better things to worry about than sweating 🙂

I have a quarter to use a pay phone, I call ….

First of all is a pay phone still a quarter to make a phone call?  And I haven’t seen a pay phone in FOREVER!  But….if I was using a pay phone I’d probably be in some sort of emergency.  So I’d be calling Ter-Bear aka by hubby.

Well, you learn from your mistakes and not a lot has changed.  But my goal is just to live each day to the fullest because we aren’t promised tomorrow.  To not worry about the little things & focus on what matters.  I didn’t have a kid yet.  I was struggling a LOT with that because I feared I would never have children…I would tell myself to chill out because 3 years from now you’ll have the biggest blessing coming your way and his name is Connor 😉

If I drove 25 miles (direction) from my house, I’d be in …
