A Night Around The Campfire


Fall is officially here, and even though it may not feel like it in Texas I'm mentally preparing for cool nights outside!

A Night Out in Georgetown


Friday night my friend, Amy, and I attended the grand opening of the Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center in Georgetown. Alex would have gone but it was formal, and he doesn't own a suit so he stayed home with the kiddos.

Our Attempted Family Cleaning Routine


It's odd that as a kid I was VERY messy...so much so my nick name was Messy Jesse. My room was always filthy and I never picked up after myself (sorry mom). Today I'm the complete opposite, and actually enjoy cleaning...well I enjoy a clean home. I've teamed up with Lemi Shine to show you my "attempt" at creating a cleaning routine that includes the whole family.

Family Yoga @ The Little Yoga House


This past weekend Turner and I went to our first yoga class together at The Little Yoga House's newest location in North Austin.  We participated in the Family Yoga class, and I loved it! The focus was "kids first, grown-ups second", and our instructor emphasized the class was all about connecting and having fun with your child.  We did partner poses, group poses, silly flowing sequences and yoga games!

Turner's Bedroom + Decorating With Color


Even though I'm a HUGE fan of color, I've decorated most of my home with neutrals. I do this because when I started decorating I was not great at picking out decor, plus I like being able to easily mix and match pieces.

Turner's bedroom is my exception! The walls and most of his furniture are neutral, but everything else has a pop of color and I love it. His room makes me so happy, and I enjoy spending time reading and playing with him there.

How To Gift A Blog in 5 Simple Steps


This might sound a little crazy, but for my niece's thirteenth birthday I bought her a blog! We had chatted about it a long time ago, and I thought it was such a fun idea. She has so much personality and I know how much fun she could have with it. Blogging has blessed me in so many ways, so my hope is that it will do the same for her. Maybe it will give her a platform to talk about things that are important to her or share photos she's passionate about. She loves music so maybe it's a place for her to share videos or songs she writes. Let me first say that I did ask my sister's permission before I set this up.

Here are the 5 simple steps I took in setting it up!

Not So Basic White Button Down


I saw this white button down in Zara a few weeks ago and fell in love! The width of the top and the asymmetrical hem make it not so basic yet it's still a classic piece to have in my wardrobe.
