Awkward, Awesome and a Few Randoms...

Awkward: Some guy at work told me my outfit looked "sharp" yesterday. Thanks dude, just trying to be "groovy."

Awesome: In the past week, my mom has ran into three of our former foster kids and sent me pictures. That marks 8 (out of over 30) that we have seen since they left us. Some of these kids we took care of over a decade ago!! It's crazy to see how they have grown. One downside to fostering infants is they usually don't remember you, but knowing that you touched their lives and showed them love when they may have never had that before makes up for it! I recently found our very first infant we fostered on Facebook (she's now 15) and was able to reach out to her and send her photos we had from when she lived with us. It was so neat to see her all grown up! 

Awesome: Our friends from Arkansas stayed with us over the weekend and we had an absolute blast! We went shopping (multiple times), went to the zoo, played games for hours, and ate way too much junk food!

Awkward: The only photos I have to show of said amazing weekend are the following FOUR photos. Epic fail...

Please ignore my awkwardness--I'm convinced it's impossible for ponytails to look cute in photos.

Random: I may or may not have spent over $100 at Sephora; however, I did get the most awesome nail polish ever (for free, might I add)! This photo shows 4 day old, amazingly un-chipped, super strong nails. I am so impressed with this nail polish!

Random: I really want a new phone case that shows off my pretty iphone 6 that I paid an arm and a leg for but I can't seem to find one that is cute, clear, and durable. I found this one at the mall but didn't buy it because I'm not sure if it is durable enough to protect my phone. Anyone have any experience with this brand or any recommendations on good cases? I currently have a dual layer Incipio that is pretty durable and relatively thin, but not very cute.

Random: We are going to be staying overnight in San Antonio later this month on our way to South Padre Island and we are trying to find a good place to eat for our anniversary (can't believe we have almost been married for a year already) preferably on or near the Boardwalk. Any recommendations?


  1. I giggle a lil bit when my mom says I look sharp, haha.

    San Antonio is such a fun city, there is a great mexican place called Mi Tierra but it is not on the riverwalk. We ate at a delicious Italian restaurant on the riverwalk last time we were in San Antonio but I can't remember the name.

  2. You look cute in a pony tail, what are you talking about!! I totally agree with the iPhone case..I hate getting a cool super expensive new phone and then getting a huge bulky case for it, making it un-cool looking lol.

  3. I love that picture of the two of you! So cute!!
    Oh my gosh, I have always wanted to go to San Antonio! How special you'll be there to celebrate your anniversary. It looks so beautiful there and I've heard there are TONS of good eats! Have fun planning!

  4. I don't know why, but "sharp" is one of those "compliments" that makes me wonder if the person is actually being sarcastic. I guess because "sharp" is usually a synonym for intelligent, so saying that you look sharp/intelligent today implies that you don't normally look it?

  5. I just did the same thing at Sephora yesterday, eeeeee!

  6. The guy taking out the trash in front of my office today stopped and told me he really liked my dress and it was my color.....I was like....ummmmm thanks? :-)

  7. that is SO cool about the foster kids!!! How cool that you got to give that 15 year old some baby pictures, she will probably really appreciate that so much when she is older and is comparing her pictures to her babies :) seriously awesome!! And you look cute in that picture but I agree, I always look so weird if I have a ponytail in pictures haha
