Happy Friday Y'all! Here's what I'm fist-pumping about this week...
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, we threw my mom a little surprise birthday party last weekend at my aunt and uncle's lakehouse on Lake LBJ. We always love going out there, so getting my mom on board to have a little "mother/daughter birthday getaway" wasn't the least bit hard. She thought we were just going out for a night and it would be pretty low-key.
While we were out on a boat ride, everyone showed up and got ready for the big surprise. I was furiously texting back and forth on the down low making sure everything would be timed right....and thankfully, it did!!!! She was so truly surprised and loved it!
And do you know what? I think I've got myself a new motto that I'll share with you:
I believe EVERYONE should be thrown a surprise birthday party at least ONCE in their life!
Hopefully in the future, I can make this statement true for loved ones in my life. There aren't many other ways for a big group of friends and family to make one feel most special.
Have YOU ever had a surprise party thrown in your honor?
Happy Spring Break!!!! Spring has sprung and it's glorious! I know I talk a big talk about loving cold weather (and despising everything else), but man...it's hard to beat a crisp morning that blossoms into a clear, cool, beautiful day!
This striped tee is on repeat and I'm not sorry about it. Mainly because I just snagged another (almost identical one) from Old Navy this morning, and I think I may have a little obsession...Hello my name is Kristen, and I'm a striped tee addict.
This week, we're doing dance intensives for Tyler Bree, headed to H-Town tomorrow for the Houston stock show, and then turn around and head back to Houston again this weekend for a wedding (it's formal attire and I have NOTHING to wear!!!). Spring Break sure filled up with a bunch of little things that prevented us from going anywhere special, so I'm hoping we can make Houston kind of a getaway of sorts for the kids. Definitely for the girls at least, as their entire goal for the trip is to step inside the American Girl store...aka, "heaven" for little girls and "money pit" for adults.
What are your plans for Spring Break??? I hope it's a great one!!!! XOXO!
Hi-ya friends! Are you feeling as sluggish this post-DST Monday as I am? Sheesh...the gloomy weather doesn't help. I can hear my bed calling my name,
"Kriiiiiiiiiiiiiisten. Come baaaaaaaaack to meeeeeeeeee."
So I've got to tell you about the newest addition to join my closet. I rarely go to the mall....like hardly EVER. But last week I found myself with some time to kill and I just so happened to be near the mall. SO, into Forever 21 I went. I'm not a huge fan of F21, but when in Rome....plus I'm on the prowl for some cute cruise-wear (t minus 1 month!).
While I was in there, nothing really caught my attention until I spotted several racks of similar long sweaters. They were all gray, but cut differently. Telling myself they'd only make my legs look short, I went ahead and tried one on to prove myself right. To my surprise, it not only fell perfectly and was the ideal length, but it didn't make my legs looker short...imagine that! If anything, it was somewhat elongating! WHAT?!? A mere $20 later, that baby was heading home with me and thrown into an outfit as fast as it could. Seriously, I wore it both Saturday to bunco AND to church on Sunday. Normally I would say a piece like this can't be worn too often because it's fairly unique and memorable....
But watch me. (mic drop)
Happy Fist Pump Friday Y'all!!!! Here's the happenings....
1. Last night I had my first ever experience at a Brazilian steakhouse! I've always wanted to go and when I got the chance to visit Estancia Churrascaria (in the Arboretum for you locals), I jumped at it! We had the BEST service and the food was super yummy. The biggest surprise was the amazing salad bar....what veggie, cheese, and salad dreams are made of! Fist Pump!
2. Also, I really appreciated getting out of the house last night. We had an "ice day" here (all schools cancelled and Blake's work too), but it turned out being a perfectly clear and beautiful (albeit freezing) day. Better safe than sorry I guess...it's just the pits that kids have to make the day up on Memorial Day. Boo. Anyway, it was literally a breath of fresh air getting out and about with my main man! Both an excuse to get dressed up a bit and to spend some quality time with him. Fist pump!
3. I don't know if there are many things more fist pump worthy than an 80's themed bunco night. I can't wait to see what craziness I can do with my hair. I'm lacking in the 80's clothing department, so we'll see...but however my look turns out, it'll be sure to be a memorable night! Fist pump!
