Life Update

Here we are already turning the corner into fall 2017.

Connor James just started 2nd grade and so far he is loving it.  I also can’t believe we have been in this house for almost a year!  After so much time looking for a home we love it here.  We have great friends, family, and community nearby.  I’m so thankful God taught us patience through that process and to know that HIS timing is always perfect timing.

Coincidentally the first day of school was also the day of the solar eclipse.  I found out Sprinkles cupcakes was doing a “black velvet” cupcake with dark chocolate ganache frosting and oh my—- best thing ever!  I LOVE dark chocolate!

We’ve done yet some more remodeling to our house.  We had the office, the extra bedroom, and Connor’s room re-plastered, textured, and painted.

So far we’ve only finished Connors room and I hope to get curtains up in the office and a new bed for the guest room soon!  We are having shutters installed tomorrow and I’m super excited to see how those turn out.

We went with Sherwin Williams Gossamer Veil in Connor’s room and painted the woodwork white.


A few weeks ago I went BACK to Arkansas for my twin sister’s shower.  You might remember our first shower HERE when we were both pregnant with the boys together.  This time around it’s just her and she’s having a baby girl!  I’m so excited and we can’t wait to welcome Ella Cate into our lives.  Bon’s friend Stephanie and her Mom did a fabulous job with the shower, everything was so beautiful!

I received the coolest CiPU Baby Diaper Bag for my sister and I was so excited to gift it to her for baby Ella!  It’s literally the lightest bag you’ve ever carried and there’s so much storage room.

  • LIGHT WEIGHT: Our diaper bags are one of the lightest on the market, weighing from just 1.1 lbs.: 13 compartments & 8 Bag accessories including changing pad, pouch, mini-purse, stroller clips. Now that’s another load off your shoulder.
  • SMART STORAGE: With 13 wide compartments, 9 interior pockets, 4 exterior pockets, include two insulated bottle pockets to keep essentials handy. It’s also equipped with bottom compartment, perfect place to put baby’s dirty clothes and diapers.
  • BEST DESIGN FOR STYLISH MOMS EVER: CiPU diaper bag Tote collection is as fashionable as it is functional. Stylish, beautiful, perfect size, wonderful design and details.
  • WATER REPELLENT MATERIAL & PERSONAL BELONGINGS POUCH: Both Inner and out Layer are water repellent, keeping your bag dry, fresh and stylish, yet easy to cleaning. Plus, CiPU diaper bags have all your items and belongings in one bag, and more convenient than having a separate handbag.
  • REMOVABLE CHANGING PAD: Portable changing pad makes it easy to keep baby dry and happy. Made from an easy-to-clean material, you can simply wipe it down to make sure it’s always ready for baby.

Nana & her boys

I got all crafty and made this flowery “E” for Ella Cate…I think it turned out pretty good!

I’m so ready for fall and I couldn’t resist decorating the mantle 🙂  Bring on all the pumpkin spice baby!!!

Well, that’s about it for now!  I’ve been enjoying some great reads on my Kindle lately and we just got back from a fabulous trip to San Antonio and Sea World – I will write about soon!  Don’t forget to follow us on the DAILY ON INSTAGRAM!!
