In a few short weeks, the Texas Women Bloggers are having their first get-together in Dallas and I couldn’t be any more excited. Bloggers are writing their own self-interview in an effort to get to know each other prior to the Girls Night Farm-to-Table Dinner Event. Many of us have only talked via email and through each other blogs, so I am excited to meet them face-to-face.

Yes, she is 15 months old.
Yes, we tried hard to wean her off her bottles starting at a year old, but she just wasn’t as ready as… Continue reading
Last weekend we visited the Tucker Hill Pumpkinville for our annual family pumpkin patch outing. We have been to several pumpkin patches that are huge, crowded and expensive. This was a nice change of pace. It was literally next door to where we live and other than the weather being unusually hot for a fall day, it was the perfect backdrop for a Pumpkin Patch. Located in McKinney, TX in the Tucker… Continue reading
Last week at our High Noon event, we made DIY Bird Feeders for the kids and they absolutely loved making them. This craft idea is super easy to make and the kids really get excited to see birds try to come up to their finished bird feeder. (Warning: this craft requires peanut butter. Please make sure that their are no children present that have a nut allergy).

After three weeks of working overtime for both my hubby and I (we both work two separate Oktoberfest events in the DFW area), we decided that a date night was long over due. We took the plunge, hired a sitter and had an adult conversation over a warm cooked meal coupled with an adult beverage or two. We were not disappointed with our dining selection for the evening.

Every day with a toddler in the house brings excitement, challenges and can be filled with a rollercoaster of emotions. After experiencing and surviving several mornings filled with stress from a teething toddler, it was nice to take a pause and simply enjoy watching my toddler play with junk this morning. It was junk that I was too lazy to pick up from the night before because I was completely spent on trying to… Continue reading
Fall is upon us which means pumpkins, gourdes, and fall decor are all the rage.

There are so many different craft ideas that you can make with the faux pumpkins. They were recently on sale for half off at Michaels. If you are looking for an easy fall craft that… Continue reading
