{Weekend Wrap-up // PTO, Hockey, 20s Themed Party}

Happy Monday!! Hope you all had a beautiful weekend. We sure did! I took off work on Friday so that I could spend the day with my boys. We had some appointments and errands to run so I took PTO for the whole day. Here's a look at our weekend...

{Five on Friday // Wander Inn , Hockey, Hockey, and more Hockey, Summer Vacations}

Happy finally Friday!! I hope that you all have had the most beautiful week. We sure did! Soaking in these final summer days before our lives start to get even more busy!! With school and league starting, I know that we will have a busy schedule. I am excited about those two things, though. Mason will be starting 8th (gasp) grade! One more year of junior high and then it's high school. Goodness, that happened fast. And before I start crying, let's move on. Here's a look at our week as well as some randomness. 

{Waxahachie Wednesday // Love Lock Wall}

Another fun Waxahachie attraction (playing off the "A Place in Your Heart, Texas") is the Love Lock Wall located in the downtown area. This fence is located on a 100+ year-old crumbling retaining brick wall. Instead of tearing it down, they came up with this fun and unique idea of a place where visitors and residents could publicly display their love for each other, or for the town by placing a heart-shaped lock on the fence. 

{Walking // The start to my health journey}

Today marks one week since I decided to get my life back on track, health-wise. I noticed that my body is getting "soft" in most areas and I'm losing muscle everywhere. And overall, I was just feeling 'blah'. I'm always tired and have no energy to want to do anything. I was tired of feeling that way, so I made a plan to change that. Last Tuesday morning, I began by going on a walk.

Happy Monday!! Last week seemed to fly by (which was really good) but then I feel like the weekend went by even quicker. And here we are, already at Monday again. Despite how quickly it went, we had a great weekend. Here's a look at what we did! 


{Waxahachie Wednesday // Hachie Hearts}

If you make a trip to the downtown area of Waxahachie you'll notice giant painted hearts in various nooks and crannies throughout. This public art project is called "Hachie Hearts" and features twenty-one unique painted hearts by local artists and each heart is sponsored by local businesses. This project is part of the city's "A Place in Your Heart, Texas" campaign. You can click here for an interactive map. 

{Weekend Wrap-up // Babes, Hockey, Softball, Church, Sushi}

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was pretty good, just not near long enough! I did soak up every minute that we got, though! It was filled with good food, family, friends, sports, and Jesus! I love those kinds of weekends. Here's a look at what we did...

{Five on Friday // Hockey, Sunflowers, Waxahachie}

Happy finally Friday! This was my first normal week (working all 5 days) in a while and it felt sooooo long!! Can we go to four day work weeks? Please and thank you! Wishful hoping. Nate is off on most Fridays (unless he picks up an overtime shift) and I'm so jealous! Well, maybe I'm not so jealous of his 4 am wake-up call. ha! Anyhow, it was a pretty good week. Here are five things from our week! 

{Waxahachie Wednesday // An intro}

Way back when I used to share a lot about  Waxahachie in my Texas Tuesday posts.  As we were driving around the downtown area the other day it reminded me how much I love this charming little town and love to share about it. Right then and there, an idea popped up in my head..."Waxahachie Wednesday"!! So from here on out, most Wednesdays will be dedicated to all things Waxahachie. 

{Fourth of July Camping // Blue Sky RV Cedar Creek}

 This year for the 4th of July, we camped with Nate's family at Blue Sky Cedar Creek. It's a new RV resort near Cedar Creek Lake. It's just minutes down the road from my family's lakehouses!  Two of my aunts, and my parents all have a lakehouse on the same street (4 houses total between them all). And because of this, we got to spend some of the 4th of July weekend with both sides of the family! It was brutally HOT but we survived and had a great time! 

{Weekend Wrap-up}

Why do weekends always fly by so fast? We had a pretty busy weekend, which always makes it seem even shorter. Despite it being busy, it was a fun weekend. Here's a look at what we did...


It's officially summer (as of June 21st) and I am a bit late in sharing our 2023 Summer Bucketlist. Summer for us usually starts in May and goes through September! The Internet says summer is from June 21st through September 23rd, to be exact. When Texas hits the 90s, that's summer enough for me. Plus, Mason is homeschooled so we can make our summer dates whatever we choose. Here's a look at all the things we hope to do this summer. Since I'm super late in posting this, we've already checked off quite a few! 

{Currently // July 2023}

It's time for a "currently" post! I haven't done one since January and these are some of my favorite posts. Linking up with Jennifer to share what we are currently loving, savoring, celebrating, remembering, and trying this month. 

{Roadtrippin' // Weatherford, TX // Texas Tuesday}

Weatherford is an adorable little town in Parker County, TX. After we ate at Herd's Burgers we headed over to Weatherford to tote around the town square. We found this adorable antique store called Miss B's Antiques and Collectables. They had the cutest stuff and the best prices.
