Black Friday 2011

Oh sweet baby Jesus! It's getting close... only 6 weeks 2 days and 12 hrs to go... I can hard stand it!! :) I'm already watching for the ads to be posted online and patiently waiting for the Walmart secret sale the Amazon Cyber Monday sales. I'm not sure I will be able to wait.... The panic is setting in and i need to SHOP!!!!

I long for this day each year. I generally go alone so I can make that mad dash for the $1 gloves or the $10 remote controlled trucks. LOL :) Last year I was able to recruit a great friend of mine, Jen. She was rookie and I may have corrupted her. We had so much fun standing line pushing our way through crowds. Crashing in our beds at 9 am to a dead sleep that lasted for hours. She has a job this year so I'm praying and wishing on every fallen eye lash and shooting star that she can go.

Keeping my fingers & toes crossed!!!

Softball Cheer Softball Tennis

I can't believe it have been over a month since my last post.. Time has flown by yet I barely remember any of it :/

Both my girls have been so busy with school softball cheer and tennis.

Big H has won her last 3 out of 4 matches this season and Little h has been cheering her heart out! Both are playing softball and let me tell ya I'm tired :)

I've been busy with spirit gifts, wrist mums, glitter headbands, bows and team shirts. This past week it was my turn for snacks for the cheer squad... The girls loved it!!!

I found these darling little cups for 32 cents each!!! I love making big splashes while saving the cash!!! LOL ;)

I have so much happening this week that i can hardly wait to tell you all about it.. But I will !! :)

It's Cheer Time

Well the cheer season is getting off to a great start. The moms are getting everything ready for our little cheer leaders and they will be adorable and have a great time.

We bought their shirts from Justice. How lucky are we to live in Texas and we were able to find these most adorable shirts for our girls spirit shirts.

We then had the girls names put on the back of them.... HOW ADORABLE!!!! Another mother (on of Little H's best friend's mom) helped me make these precious bows for the squad. LOVE the bling!!!

Our first game is in 2 weeks ... We still have so much more to do... next week I will post our cheer buckets & shoe poms. :)

We took a family vacation this past week to La Veta Pass...... Boy was it GORGEOUS!!! Waking up to this

Yes that's a bear.. LOL. and he is real! We saw one every night about the same time... Very scary but so fun!! There was horse back rinding in which I got a huge splinter in my butt....

Sweet 16!

My dear sweet niece turned 16 this week.... I arrived at her house singing 16 candles doing the dance Steve Martin did in only the BEST movie EVER - Father of the Bride attic scene. He has found an old tux from the 70's.. putting it on he is thrilled it still fits. LOVE that movie!!!
So hard to believe this little girl is now 16. My heart melts when I think back to these days... Why doesn't it seem so long ago? :/

Love you ever so much!!!! Happy Birthday my darling niece

Jus Mac

This place was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! You can see their menu here. Big H, Little H & I took Papa (my dad) here today. This joint opened at noon. We got there at 12:20 and the line was to the door and no tables! It was so fun :)

They specialize in Mac & Cheese... And boy oh boy do they ever have a menu!! We ordered the All American with bread crumb topping, this was just a regular plain Jane cheddar mac.. it was good! We also ordered the Chili Cheese.. This one was made with chili of course but topped with Frito's.. OMG!!! This was Big h's fave ;)

The 3rd one with was Bacon Bliss.. MY FAVE... This was ouey gooey cheesy with huge chunks of bacon... HEAVEN!!!
The last one we choose was The Pitt Master.. Mac & Cheese infused with BBQ.. This was Little H's Fave.... I forgot to take a picture of this one but trust me - SO worth the try!

One of the things I liked most about this place was everyone ordered the regular size and shared :) The 4 regulars we ordered wasmore than enough for 4 people. No one went home hungry.. We even had left overs :) Can we say mid-night snack LOL

Little H has a birthday about 2 weeks after one of her best friends, Haleigh.

Don't you just love the neon pink and jelly bracelets the girls are sporting? LIKE TOTALLY

This year, they girls have gotten together and will have a roller skate party.

We have rented out the roller rink so the girls will have only their friends and family there.. How lucky are these two little divas?! :)

We had custom invites made that scream 80's :) The girls are so excited about turning 7 and celebrating with all their firends and family! I'll post more after the details have been completed :) It's going to be totally RAD!

9 Fabulous Years

Today is our 9th wedding anniversary. I got these!!! Aren't they gorgeous!!!I can't believe it's been 9 years already.. It seams like just yesterday I met Mr. H. Here is a picture from the first few months of us dating. My oh my do we look so young... And my hair!!! it was so short.. I loved it!!! Not sure I have the nerve to go that short again :) I love this picture of Mr H & I.. It's one of my favorites.. My heart tears up each time i look at it (it's on my end table) This is the only copy I have of this. It is stuck to the glass and wax from a candle has melted on the front of the glass. If I try to peel the picture off it will rip... So there it sets on my table globed with wax and discolored.... But I display it proudly!!

Behind the scenes Texas Style

A few weeks ago I had an awesome opportunity to go after hours to the Houston Museum of Natural Science to the Texas Exhibit. WOW.. This was amazing! I'm still learning to use my camera and the trick shots :) After taking several hundred pictures I think I was able to capture a few good ones.. I keep hearing that if you get one great shot out of 36 then your doing great. Even though I'm getting one good one out of 36, I still wish I could get 1 of 1.. That's my OCD and desire to always be perfect.. Which I am so far from - LOL There is so much to remember and do when taking pictures.. I think I'm better at the moments where I'm not rushed. I can take my time and look for those angles aperture and which lens I should use... I tried to use my 55-200mm lens but I think that was over kill. So I quickly switched to my 18-55mm. Much better.. My 35mm was more difficult for me to use, still not use to that one.

Life Begins

This week has been very emotional for my house... My laptop was down for a few days, Big H is now a sophomore, Little H is now a 1st grader.. And my oldest niece Kelcie has graduated high school...

Through all the tears this week I was bound to get something wrong. Wrong shoes, forget to buy groceries.. Something I tell ya!!

Well I got the time of the ceremony wrong.. Thinking it was at 4.. I had plenty of time... Woke Mr. H up at 1 to get ready. The girls and I were ready at 1:30.. PERFECT!! Then I had the wonderful idea to look at the invite again... WHAT!!!! June 4th at 2 pm it says... UGGG.. Mr. H was dressed in a record time. We made it... I plea the 5th on if any laws were broken in order to make the 40 min drive in less than .. well less than 40 min.s is all i will say :) We arrived just as the program began.. .. So proud of my beautiful niece!!!

Who doesn't LOVE vintage?

I recently stumbled upon these little beauties! You know how it is, you see something so darling that you know if you don't grab them they will be gone. :) They are so small... and made of tin. I so can't wait to bake in these this fall !!! I may have to start early.... Next weekend the local blueberry farm officially opens. I take my girls every year and they LOVE it. We generally make jam but how precious would it be to bake up little blueberry cakes with these for lunch for their last week at school??? :)
