It’s summer…summer time y’all!  I can’t wait to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and have some place else to gather.  This summer has been crazy busy for us and I told y’all in my last post we are moving!  Well, we FOUND A HOUSE!!!  Yay!  It has a gorgeous back yard and I can’t wait to have friends and family over for barbecues and gatherings.


This summer is all about making memories, especially in our new home.  I’m sure you’ve been to the grocery store lately and seen all the fun Coke products out.  I went to Brookshire’s this weekend and picked up some Coke with fun sayings like “Mom”, “Grad”, “Dad”, “Superstar”, “Bro”, and you can even find your own name on some Coke bottles.  I have yet to find Becky though…ha…ha..!!!  It has to be out there somewhere because I saw the name “Griselda” the other day and I thought to myself if Coke is making that name they have a Becky out there in the universe!


Last year’s Share a Coke campaign was such a success, Coke has brought it back bigger and better! This year Coke will have 1000 names featured on 20 ounce bottles along with other unique products.  The special Coke cans come in all varieties, including Coke classic, diet, and zero.

As I shop at Brookshire’s this summer & I see the name of someone I know I’ll pick up a Coke for them.  I’m excited to share it with them because it’s almost like it was made ESPECIALLY for that person.  I think I’m going to get Terence one that says “Better Half”.  Ha ha!  Well, he can give it to me maybe?

When I got home from work yesterday I made a delicious Coke float. What is better during the summer than an ice-cold Coke float?

I mean…..


So, who are you planning on sharing a Coke with this summer?  Have you found your name yet?


The “Grad” Coke drinks would be so cute if you know of someone graduating this year.  Also, don’t forget Father’s day is coming up and they have “Dad” Cokes too.

Cheers to a wonderful summer friends and don’t forget to SHARE A COKE!

We are Moving!

I’m slacking major on the blog lately.  I really do enjoy journaling our life.  I can’t believe I’ve almost had this little website for 10 years!

We decided to put our house on the market earlier this year before Connor starts Kindergarten later in the fall.  Well, we put it on the market and within 3 days it was sold!  That was great….but now we have to find a house and it’s been CRAZY out there.  If you are house hunting in DFW right now I do not envy you.  The market has totally turned.  It’s great for sellers, but for buyers prepare yourselves for battle.


I think we’ve made 4 or 5 offers on homes (all well above asking) and haven’t gotten any of them.  We have to be out of our current house in 3 weeks & I’m just a tad nervous about it.  We haven’t even started packing.  Ugh.

It’s going to be bittersweet leaving this home.  We’ve made so many memories and it’s the house we brought Connor home to from the hospital.  It’s the only home he’s known.  Now it’s time for someone else to cherish it and we are looking forward to this next phase in our lives.


One thing that stinks when your house is on the market is constantly keeping it CLEAN.  We have hardwoods throughout our home and have used Bona Free & Simple® Hardwood Floor Cleaner.  It works great and I’ve been able to keep everything looking up to par.

Bona is a non-toxic and no residue product, with a new, unique certification by the Asthma & Allergy Foundation.  Sign up for the Bonafide Fanatics mailing list and download the $3.00 off coupon to experience Bona.

As we transition into this new phase in our lives we ask for prayers & thank everyone for all their love and support.
