New Year, New Budget

Towards the end of every year I take an in-depth look at my spending over the past year. I also look at where my family is financially. Did we increase our debt? Did we decrease it? Did our spending habits change? Did we make any expensive purchases we regret now? Could we have saved more?

Honoring Dad

It's been two years since we lost you. I hate this day to be honest, but every year I try to remember all the good times we shared rather than dwell on the fact that you aren't here. Recently we celebrated you and your hard work, and it was a blessing to be a part of.

Celebrating Success

I've been in a few conversations lately about women not celebrating their successes, and every time I shake my head YES! We worry, agonize and put so much effort working towards a goal and when we finally achieve it....crickets. How do we celebrate? How do we acknowledge the blood, sweat and tears that went in to achieving that goal?

Ear Infections & Ear Tubes

When I was pregnant with my first child, I only worried about getting through birth. I didn't worry about all the things that would come after. Long nights, colic, ear infections and more.

All three of my children had terrible ear infections just a few months after they were born, which was hard to watch. Today I'm partnering with Dell Children's Medical Center to share our experience with our children getting ear tubes there. For those who are considering tubes, this post could be very helpful!

Holiday Vacation at Horseshoe Bay Resort

Alex and I packed up the kids and took a mini-vacation to Horseshoe Bay Resort last weekend! We were invited by the resort to check out their holiday features and events, and we were blown away!

Check out this slice of heaven less than an hour from Austin and all they have to offer this holiday season for you and your family!

Our Christmas Wish Lists

Instead of creating a holiday gift guide I would much rather share what is on my family's Christmas wish list this year! I try to stick to purchasing 4 presents per kid, and Alex and I usually exchange one gift under $100. Here's what's on our list! Not all things are intended to be purchased, but I made a large list to provide to grandparents as well.
