I have always been a huge fan of pinterest. It took me a while to come aboard but I haven’t looked back since!

I have 2,108 pins and 36 boards. I pin stuff just to be able to look back on it. I don’t have a baby girl but I sure as heck have the cutest baby girl rooms if that ever happens (I am pretty sure Matt and I will have a boy filled family, lol)

I have made a pact to myself to complete a few projects by October. I always want to make the cutest holiday crafts and fill silly for doing it in July but then the fall comes and busy happens.

Here are my pinterest projects!

A “Seasons” Wall. I have not actually seen this but we do have a wall in the kitchen (where there is a dry erase calendar that still says “December” on it….that my dad antagonizes me every time he sees it. I am  going to take this down and make a picture collage of pictures about each season!

Here are some Spring pictures that I will put up

A “Hero” wall – About 2 years ago (I know, I am BAD!) I asked if I could get pictures from both of our families of everyone who was in the military. I wanted to make a wall that Max could look at and be proud of. Yeah, I have the pictures and in frames but nothing is up. I came across this pin the other day and hope to find a good picture to be in the center of all the pictures J

Halloween Countdown, Thanksgiving Countdown, Christmas Advent – I am going to continue with what We did for Thanksgiving – Maxim loved the thankful tree. I will also keep the Spider Halloween countdown as he got a kick out of that. I just need to get them set up and ready.

Elf on the shelf ready and prepared for all his activities (My mom got him one last year and we just had him hang out on the fireplace and he pointed to him a lot. I have a feeling he will be ready this year)

Completely finish my GOD quiet book – yeah, I almost finished this last year and did nothing with It, time to finish!!

Paint the guest bathroom!! I have a wonderful vision in my head but I believe I will have to buy my fake pink peonies first before I go looking for a paint color. I am thinking a green but I am unsure right now.

Our first project should be the bathroom but I am going to be working hard on the Hero wall and Seasons wall!

Now for some Max pics!

That is Max above…with his feet on the table, lol


Maxim is two!

Our love bug turned two on March 14th!!


Look at this booger!!


Now two!!!


We got him some balloons! He freaked!


We “mistakenly” got Max this chalk paint…our whole patio is covered as wells as his body! It wipes off so easily though!

He got some chalk from his Auntie C!!


I did not want to have a party, After his big 1st bday shindig I just wanted close family and friends and am waiting until he wants to have a party.

We went classy and popped on over to Chuck E. Cheese.

The toddler zone was crappy but we did what we could!!


He wanted to play Skee Ball so badly so we let him and had to yell “FOUR” a lot!!


He loves Gigi’s Cupcakes!


We spent all Sunday outside painting and hanging out in the sandbox…


My mom got him a Wobble, it is massive and a lot of fun to play with!


My parents going to Maui!! I had the pleasure of dropping them off at the Airport on Sunday Morning! I love airports!! It was super busy at 7am!

Max’s Stats!

Max had his 2 year check up this past Friday!



The kid won’t eat, but he’ll drink the heck out of Milk, Water, and super watered down juice!!

Stats: 34 inches and 26 lbs

We have always known the he wouldn’t be a massive child. They say you should double their height when they are 2 and that is how tall he will be…5’8″ it is!

26lbs is in the 40th or so percentile. We were floored, lol! We thought he would be underweight!

His screaming issues at bedtime are normal (the past two nights he hasn’t screamed when I put him to bed)

His eating issues are normal for this age!


We get home, I make his lunch and I hear this business going on. All toys were saved. The TP sadly met the end of their life and Max promptly laid on the wet floor.


Past weekend!

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening!

I apologize that it has been a while, Max got a fever virus, I got a fever virus, my amazing Grandpa passed away and we had a wedding this past weekend so this was put on the backburner.

We went to Boerne this past weekend to attend a wedding for some good friends of ours. I love going to Boerne but traveling there takes a lot out of me! Max has never been a good car rider, even since he was born. I remember refusing to go anywhere because the kid would just scream!

Well he still does it. We try to drive during nap times but unfortunately those don’t last very long. He did fall asleep eating chocolate this past time….

Presley is such a good sport! Matt stayed at the wedding Saturday night (he was a groomsmen), while Max and I went home. The second I got home I saw that Presley was quarantined to the hallway. I found out that he has been having accidents since we had left. They thought that he was rebelling some but I have never known Presley to rebel or pee on a carpet. It turns out it was bloody urine he was peeing. We took him to Herbst Vet (THE BEST!!) and found out that he has a bladder infection.

He also had crystals in his urine but they had not formed to Kidney Stones. He got a shot, antibiotics and brand new prescription strength food to help him out. We go back to the vet Friday to see how he is doing!!

Gabby who is usually the one that always gets in trouble was pretty easy this past weekend.

That is actually someone’s real name. He runs a funeral home in San Antonio…oh sheesh

Carla, Delaney, and I left the boys to watch the kiddos and went to Paul’s Gourmet Popcorn. This is by far the best popcorn I have ever had…anywhere! The flavors were amazing. I bought mini bags of those four samples above. Puppy Chow is the best!

Yup, I forgot black socks!


Happy Family…he was super good that night! Everyone loooooooved him!

We then had a wonderful family get together the next afternoon to celebrate Matt’s, Mine, and Maxim’s birthday!

I have been feeling pretty strong about this lately. It is very hard to live by.
