My sister and I have talked about doing a double date night with our husbands for YEARS. Last Saturday, we finally did it! I was so excited. I don't get to see my sis very often so to be able to sit and talk to her one on one about things was amazing to say the least.
We went and had an amazing dinner complete with a live band. We loved the atmosphere. We were very relaxed and ready to enjoy each others company.
Afterwards, we went to a bar next door and had drinks on the patio. We were in downtown Houston and the view was amazing. I really wish I would have had more than just my iphone camera with me. Mental note: always go to cool new places with camera. I drank Paradise Martinis. Never had them before...and they were amazing. We stayed until 2, got home at 3...alseep by 3:15. It was so worth it!

I got my hair did yesterday! I love it. I have a "head full of Autumn"! Beautiful reds with blonde highlights. The PERFECT fall look!
So, now that I've decorated myself (haha) I'm guessing I need to get that fall mantel done!

Hope everyone else is doing good as well.

You were missed very much today, Alayna Marie. It has been 2 years since you were taken from us. I never met your brother and only met you a handful of times but you are in our family's thoughts often. Every time we see a butterfly we say...there goes Alayna. It has become your symbol. It rained all day. I know you just wanted to be all around us. Don't worry baby girl, you will never be forgotten and hopeful justice will be served soon. Sweet dreams honey, until we meet again.

I'm a little OCD about things every now and again. I had been gathering all these different organizing techniques on Pinterest for awhile when I stumbled on this one:
I bought the stuff for it about a week ago and have done nothing with it, until last night. Here is mine:
I'm pretty excited and my counter is clean now. I just need to decorate a little pen cup and everything will be complete. Have a good weekend!

Yesterday, I went to the park for lunch. I haven't had many chances to sit and play with my camera...alone. So I grabbed my camera and went to the park, alone.
Or at least I thought I was alone. I found a few ducks there with me.
And there were ALOT of feathers.
It was such a peaceful and relaxing lunch. I didn't even mind that I was walking around in heels. If I had a blanket, I would have totally layed down on the grass and taken a nap. Have a happy Thursday!

So I gained a little weight. I'm pissed. Why is it when it was my time of the month I LOST WEIGHT and now that it is over I GAINED! That just doesn't make sense. So, during lunch I went and bought some Slim Fast. I need to do something. I eat crap at work, I know I do. But I love food!!!! I hope everyone else is doing better with their weight loss goals!

So my daughter is a Senior this year so this was her last homecoming. We did the traditional photos in the front yard. Then her friends came over and we went down to the waterway for more photos. They opted NOT to go to the dance! So really, they just got dressed up so I could do photos and then changed and went bowling.....they could have done that on any given Saturday, but whatever.
My oldest and my youngest....are they not the cutest together!
My new all time favorite photos of my daughter!
It was fun but bittersweet. Devon won't be going to dances for a few years but he's a boy and that just isn't the same. I had fun none-the-less.
