Birthdays and Bar Crawls

Last week was my amazing husband’s birthday!  I must have done something right in a previous life. I have been blessed with the most incredible husband, best freind and partner in life. I know this sounds so cliché but he really does make me a better person. In the eight years we have been together, we both have grown so much and constantly push each other to do better and be better in every way. We have had ups and downs but worked through it all. I can actually say that I fall in love with him more everyday. This past year of our marriage seems like we are in our honey moon stage even though we’ve been married for five years. Dating  your husband is the best thing you can keep doing for your marriage.

We started the festivities with dinner on his actually birthday with the family. Choosing a restaurant to go to when you live in a city is sometimes impossible. With so many options and multiple opinions I think it probably took over an hour to figure out. Since  it was Tony’s birthday we wanted him to decided and his only requirements were ” somewhere where I can drink whiskey on a patio while wearing a tank top!”. It’s lines like that that make me realize  how much our lives have changed since we moved here.  We decided on the blind butcher in lower greenville. 

What a meathead… 


family dinner was followed by a bar crawl of deep ellum, just me and my baby. exploring is one of our favorite things to do. you see a lot more when you travel on foot and are just open minded about places.  


It was quite the  random evening but we wouln’t want it any other way.



slipppin’ and slidin’ into summer

A LOT has happened since I started this blog. I’m a little behind on my posts because I’m still trying to get the hang of all of this. 

    the “slide the city” melt down.

     We were sooooo pumped for this event. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect. It was a perfect hot and sunny Texas Saturday. For those of you that aren’t familiar with this event, click here – . It’s basically a giant slip n’ slide in a big city. I love going out to Fort Worth so I was especially excited for this day in the city with my tcu homie.  We woke up bright and early and hit the  road to fort worth. This is where I introduced iced caramel macchiato to Jillian’s life.   

    Waitig in line for what seemed like forever.        
    After almost a 3 hour delay, they finally canceled the morning group due to mechancle issue. #heartbroken


        Everyone walked down but I my inner rebel came out so I jumped the fences and slid down solo!  all in all not a bad day, ended up just hanging at the festival then grabbing a great lunch with freinds in the city. 

        Maybe we will try again when it rolls into dallas this July?



        My very first post!

        Hello blog world! I’ve always wanted to get into the blogging thing but was intimated by it all. I am NOT a writer, I don’t know anything about blogging or coding and I don’t have trust fund to travel the world and buy designer things to post about. I am, however, “special” as my husband likes to say…

        With that said, grow with me as I learn and follow me and my crazy life.
