Five..Six..Pick up sticks?


I cannot believe that we have another birthday in our house! Our five year old foster son turned six  on Feb. 18th(even though he did not pick up sticks on his birthday, he did a couple days after to help Shane mow the lawn, lol).

He now weighs 47 pounds and is 48″ tall(done at home, he has not had his well check yet)! It truly amazes me with how much he has grown with us in just a few months!

He is definitely the happiest child of all of our five children, he even has gained Brielle as a good friend (which is hard to do because she is a LOT to deal with at times, lol), and he loves to just go and explore all that life has to offer.

He is currently in Kindergarten and has just done SO well in school so far, and definitely has a passion for all things learning.  He even loves when I do learning activities at home and is so proud of himself when he gets something right.

His favorite foods are pizza, mac & cheese, and broccoli.

He loves to participate in sports, and cannot wait to start baseball soon!

To celebrate his birthday we all had a cake at home, my parents came down to celebrate nd then we all went to coast in Corpus Christi for the weekend.  It was SUCH a blast and I think his favorite part was going in the ocean, for sure!

I cannot wait to see what this year brings for him! I will leave you all with some pictures (of course they have to be blurred while he is in foster care) but let me just tell you.. he is as handsome as ever!

Happy birthday, to the worlds best mom


Okay, so I might be a little biased by saying “the worlds best” but quite honestly.. I think the world of her!

You want to know who was one of the first people to know that Shane and I were pregnant with our three littles? My Mom

You want to know who I asked to be in my delivery room, each and every time? My mom

You want to know who was there the day Rochelle took her last breath in the hospital? My mom

You see an underlying theme right? My mom has got to the be the best friend, parent, grandparent, and more that you could ever ask for.  She supports my goals, hopes, and dreams, and she always keeps me grounded.  It’s so nice to know that not a day has gone by in the last 28 years, that she hasn’t done everything she could for me, and for that, I will be forever grateful.

Happy BIRTHday mom!! I love you SO SO much!! (we will be celebrating tonight for dinner, can’t wait!!)

How Lush!


For my birthday, my best friend bought me some fresh handmade cosmetics and I couldn’t wait to share them with the world! Lush cosmetics is a great line for women who are looking to stay all natural in their products, and know that what they are using on their body is good for them and the environment.

Each product is handmade and made right there in the back of their stores.

The gift box Krystle got me was compiled up of six products.  All the products are made to be used during the bath/shower and they smell amazing!  I have used a couple of them already and they literally leave your skin feeling so soft and so smooth! I can’t wait to especially use the facial moisturizer, because my skin is constantly dry!

The boxing is amazing and chic, and it list all the ingredients of each product, in the box.

If you are looking for a all natural approach to your skin and the make-up you use, this product is definitely for you!

Here is the link to their shop:

Celebrating 7th anniversary of my 21st!


This year I wanted to do something a little different. Turning 28 definitely has opened my eyes to so much.  I definitely value the little things in life, so much more!

We decided to go out to eat at my favorite restaurant (Chuy’s in Austin, Tx), and then go out to do some bowling, play some pool, and just have some good ol’ fun.



Thank you to all my friends and family who came out to celebrate!! Y’all are amazing!!
