White Trash Murder Mystery

My favorite friend tradition lived on for another year, murder mystery party 2018, thanks to Jenny! We all gathered and adorned ourselves with amazing white trash costumes. This bunch of pals always goes all out for costumes! The gathering was a smashing time and I’m happy I wasn’t the murderer this year. I was a strange character who essentially tried to pick up every dude at the party. All-in-all it was a great time! Love these friends so much!

Quilting for Babies

Since I have developed a sincere love for quilt making I decided to make a quilt for two new babies this year. I made a quilt for William and Kate.. two babies fit for royalty! 

I had a great time crafting them over the summer. I was so excited to give them to their baby owners. I didn’t have them completed until after each baby was born but it was all good! They were loved all the same!  

Fair Fun

Scott and I headed to the fair in early September for a date night. We walked around and remembered how the fair is filled with the most unique souls. We did enjoy fair treats, chocolate covered strawberries for me and deep fried cookie dough for Scott. We kept trying to enjoy the last few moments before baby arrived. I think we lived it up as best as we could! 

Burger Boy Day

Scott and I invented a family holiday. Every August 8th, 8/8, we will celebrate our love for burgers. We also want to make up a strange folklore about a burger boy who brought burgers to all the hungry boys and girls, but in time the magic of the holiday will develop.

I’m really excited to make fun traditions for our family. I hope I can focus on making them a reality for our family! 

Baby Belly

My belly continued to get bigger and bigger as the summer progressed. I was reminded by many that I didn’t even look pregnant but I most certainly was! 

Texas Times

I squeezed in two more trips to Texas before our baby arrived. On both trips, Ashley came down from Houston. It was so nice to spend quality time with my family. It was my last trips as just the fun aunt but I hope I can always be the fun aunt! We explored the Pearl Brewery area on one of the trips. Scott came on that trip too which made it all the more fun!

Baby Kate

My dear pals welcomed their newest baby to their family on July 9th. I was awakened in the early morning of the 9th to come watch the older two kiddos. I was so excited to help and explain to the older kiddos that Mommy was having the baby today! It also made the fact that my baby was coming next more real. Jen and I have both enjoyed being pregnant together so it was surreal to see her pregnant times ending. 

I had fun playing playdoh and watching shows with the older kiddos. Their Poppy came to get them but it was so special to be there with them that morning as we waited to find out if the baby was a boy or girl, so much anticipation! What was even more special is that Dan and Jen named the new baby, Kate Emily! I felt so honored to have a little baby friend share my name. Dan and Jen are my family and I feel so blessed to have them in my life. I’m excited for my son to share in my love for this incredibly kind and giving family!
