Set Adrift On Memory Bliss

Linking up with these wonderful ladies!

Because You’re Mine, I Walk The Line

Many of you know about my failed attempts to quit smoking this year. For those of you who don’t…I’ve failed to quit smoking this year! Sad, but true. Especially since I was completely smoke free up until this past August. Oh well, we all have our vices. Some are just way more enjoyable and devastating…

I’m Thankful for iPhones

Without them, we wouldn’t have great pictures of the year our turkey was too big for the roaster and had to be secured with duct tape! Hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Linking this up with those wild and crazy  iPhone Photo Phun gals:  

Boo!

We had a wonderful Halloween! We went to a family Halloween party on Sunday and then, Monday, took the kids trick-or-treating with friends. I’ve sorted the haul and it looks like I’ll be adding another few pounds to my waistline this winter. But I’m willing to sacrifice my figure in order to keep our dental…

Like Mother, Like Daughter

A while ago I posted about how Elijah, while a wonderful photographer, can’t seem to take any pictures that illuminate the beauty of his lovely wife. Recently we discovered that Amelia has inherited my trait for being just as unphotogenic. I am so sorry baby girl but it’s not all that bad. It just means…

The Many Drinks of MarVal

Last weekend marked our annual cabin camping trip. It’s pretty much my favorite weekend of the year because it means that Fall is finally here and all my favorite family holidays are just around the corner! For this weeks iPPP post, I thought I’d share some pictures Elijah took of me. It won’t take you…

Here Comes The Rain Again

Some of you may have heard that Texas is in a drought. The Austin area, where I live, is well on it’s way to scoring the newest drought on record since the 1960’s. Many of the surrounding areas have already instituted water restrictions and we are all doing what we can to conserve. This means,…

Don’t Blink, You Might Miss Something

I had wanted to add just one more Vegas post and this week’s iPhone Photo Phun is the perfect opportunity. I’m both a little proud and ashamed to say that I really didn’t miss my family much while on my girl’s trip. I think Elijah was slightly put out by that and there were times…

Eat Your Heart Out

Vegas recap week continues!!!! Are you bored yet? Hopefully not but if so, I apologize…sort of. Hands down, for me, the best part of the Vegas trip was the food. Initially, when we settled on going to Vegas I was a little less-than-enthused. Having been to Vegas before, I couldn’t fathom that Sin City could…

I’ll Fly Away

Three years ago, on the day of a dear friend’s birthday celebration, I found out I was pregnant with Amelia. Needless to say, Elijah and I subtly ruined her birthday dinner with our inability to drink and overall weirdness. To celebrate a friendship that can overcome ruined birthdays and hormonally challenged pregnancies, we are leaving…
