October Tidbits

Happy Monday & Happy Halloween!!  

Everyone! How was everyones Halloween weekend?? Ours was absolutely amazing, even if we didn’t get to participate in the Halloween activites!

I usually try my bestnnot to do monthly Tidbits on a Monday, but with us being away this past weekend, this was just the easiest option for me. Plus, it’s technically the last day of October, so  think it’s okay!

As I mentioned last month, I left you guys off with Hannah J (my baby sister) going to her first High School homecoming. Guys, she looked absolutely beautiful, it was definitely weird seeing her look so adult, but I loved being able to be there for her during this time.

Before Homecoming, she went to her dates house, with the rest of the group, to take pictures, before heading off to homecoming. So of course, like the “mom” that I am, I tagged along, camera in hand, ready to take all of her pictures.

If you would have told me five years ago that I would be doing this or how much I would have enjoyed it, I wouldn’t have believed you, but I seriously had the best time at this kids house. This mom had a whole spread of amazing food, beer, wine & etc. for everyone, so that was really unexpexted but very cool.

I had introduced myself to her dates mother, as Hannah’s sister, at the beginning of the night, but I guess the rest of the parents didn’t get the memo because once everyone was a little boozed up, a mother ran up to me and said “Are you her mother? Because if so, I NEED your face cream!”. I about died haha but told them that I was in fact her sister and did not have Hannah when I was 10!!! It’s literally so strange, but people ask me this all the time and I’m like, “What is wrong with you all!!” – ha!

One thing we have started doing, that we really enjoy, is going to the Drexel House in Highland Village on Sunday evenings. They have live music and two free Stella’s with dinner, so Colton I have been taking full advantage of the free booze and music. Plus since the weather has been so amazing, it has made the event that much better.

That next weekend we went to ACL and danced/sang our little hearts out all weekend long. There is literally nothing I love more than festivals, and ACL is of course one of my absolute faves! 

We stayed with our friends, at their awesome apartment and just partied with them all weekend. It was the best. We all went to Baylor together and I am pretty sure it was the longest we had all been together since being at Baylor, so it was pretty awesome spending the weekend with them.

SIDE NOTE: I consumed about 10,00000 popsicles that week. #dontjudgeme

The moment I got back from ACL, I started the Dirty Lemon Detox, which I LOVED. After a full weekend of consuming more beer than I had all year long, my body was begging for me to treat it well. A full post on the detox is coming soon!

Last weekend, my best friend Annie came in to stay with me and I honestly can’t explain how happy it made me. Like I really needed my Ann time. On Friday night, we started out at Brasserie 19 for a casual dinner and ended up going dancing all night.  

That next day, we were all a little slow but still had such a fun day. We went to Baba Yegas for lunch and watched football at Down the Street Bar all afternoon but called it an early night because I did not want to be hungover for my event the next day! 

As you guys saw last week, the event was such a hit. Afterwards we headed to North (or favorite) to grab an early dinner before taking Annie to the airport.

Even though I knew we weren’t really going to be here for Halloween, I was determined for us to get our family photo. We’ve had at least one family photo from a pumpkin patch, every year, for like the past 5 years and I was not about to miss this year, all because we would be out of town!

As you guys probably saw from Instagram and Snapchat, Colton and I spent the weekend in Napa with my Dad. Oh, what a weekend it was!! I cannot wait to tell you all about it! It actually felt like fall there, so I was in heaven!! It was crisp, cool and the leaves had all just changed colors. It was absolutely magical. We were there Labor Day weekend and it was crazy to see, just how much the area had changed in less than two months. 

This week, my Dad is away for work, so Colton and I will be house sitting (& babysitting) for him for the next 5 days. We’ll see how this week goes! 

Any who, I hope you all have a great up coming week! As I write this, I’m sitting at the San Francisco airport and our flight has officially been delayed 3 times. It’s looking like we won’t be home until almost 2 a.m….. yikes!

June Tidbits

I know I said the same thing about May, but June will be pretty hard to beat.

Like for realz. 

It’s honestly so crazy to me just how much can happen in one month.

In one month. How much can change and how it can just fly by so fast.

From starting the month in Rome, then going to Florence, Marseille and Barcelona it seriously started out to the best start. I mean NO COMPLAINTS HERE. We’re already day dreaming of our trip back – ha!

But I’m not going to lie, being home has been nice.

(First weekend home, consisted of National Rose Day, Brunches & Baby Showers w/ my best friend Annie)

Coming back home was very bitter sweet. Even though we were having literally the time of our lives while away, I was like really, really anxious to get home. I was anxious to see my family and my friends and get back to our lives. I was anxious to celebrate our big news.

Which is probably why I wanted to throw such a big party as soon as I got back.

Literally the moment we got back, we started planning. You would have thought we were planning the wedding the way we went about it! From catering, to a band, a location, and even picking out linens I was way in over my head. So thank goodness for the vast amount of support I had.

(I’ve been asked by a few people to do a post on my ring, how we picked it, where it was made and etc. Thoughts? Is that weird? I’m iff on it.)

But once the party day finally hit and all of our day of drama was behind us (I’ll tell you more about that next week!) it was seriously the best party! I mean, I couldn’t have asked for a better evening. 

I kept joking that I didn’t even need a wedding! That this was all I needed and that were ready to elope!! Just kidding……kind of 😉

But now that it’s all over, I feel like I can finally start getting back into my blogging. I know that I have still been consistently posting, but I have felt like my mind has been elsewhere. 

Like it was so much fun to go to the Sugar & Cloth even and catch up with Kailey & Dede. I had been back for two weeks and hadn’t been to one event! So I was thankful for this. 

Any who, we will see where July takes me! Hopefully I’ll be able to scratch off something on my wish list.
