The Day We Found Out

Brandon and I had just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary (December 2103) when we decided to pull the plug on birth control 200 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico sailing to Jamaica. It was scary as hell and exhilarating all at the same time. Not sure how that's even possible, but it was! ...more

Picking Your Battles

Over the weekend I sat at my mom's kitchen table sipping my coffee, while trying to conceal a pounding headache and hangover, I sat listening to my mother and aunt talk about their husbands and marriages. Simply listening, not judging. Learning ....more

The 5 o'clock Club

Next month will mark a full year that I've been hitting the gym consistently, and six months now for Brandon. I am so incredibly proud of us. It really is so easy to hit the snooze button when the alarm goes off at 5am, then again at 5:15am ....more

San Antonio Riverwalk So back in March work took me to San Antonio for a Jewelry Trade Show and sales conference.

Splurging Every Now and Then

Whether it's splurging on a new pair of Steve Madden heels that I've had my eye on for the past 6 months or splurging on dessert and getting the Molten Chocolate Lava cake at Chili's, it's good to splurge every now and then. It's the little things in life that make us the happiest. That make life worth living and so much to enjoy ....more

Diamonds, Glitter and Jewelry Oh My!!

Back in November I made a pretty big decision to leave my current sales position of a year and a half with the whole package (you know, health and dental benefits, 401K options, etc.), and I took a leap of faith and headed forward in a new adventure....more

Town Square Cafe, Bay City

If you ever find yourself traveling through or, in the rare occasion staying in, Bay City, one place you'll have to stop in and check out is the town square cafe which coincidently is named Town Square Cafe. It's on the square in Bay City across from the courthouse (but whatever you do, don't call the square "downtown"). I made that mistake only once ....more

Thursday Night Ritual // Victor's Tacos, Bay City

This is the third time we've eaten Victor's Tacos, and each time we've left with empty wallets and completely satisfied bellies. Victor's Tacos truck is only in Bay City on Thursdays, so when we get the chance to indulge in greasy, delicious, spicy tacos it's an awesome night in my book! We're seriously thinking about making this a new Thursday night tradition ....more
