Thoughts from a Thursday

Ramblings

-I’m a real northerner now, as I thought the 40 degree weather we had yesterday was practically beach weather. -Who’s with me that January is the worst month?  I feel like it’s S-L-O-W-L-Y dragging by. -I know there are fabulous restaurants here, but I really miss Dallas restaurants – they are so big and new and everything is indoor-outdoor. Brooklyn is full of adorable hole-in-the-wall places that are not so great for strollers, high chairs, or small beings that make…

Brooklyn Cooking Weekend Recap

It’s funny, thinking back to last year, I remember being a bit disappointed I couldn’t go out to a fancy restaurant and drink lots of cocktails for NYE.  This year?  I was so excited for a night on the couch with Matt. I planned the menu and Matt went and got all the groceries on Saturday, so we could relax and enjoy Sunday a bit more. I joined the Y last week, so I checked out a total body conditioning…

Bald Head to Brooklyn

Life

Hey y’all, So sorry for the lack of posts. Thanks for your patience as I get my life together. We spent 10 days at my parents house on Bald Head before we arrived in Brooklyn. It was a much-needed rest after the craziness of the fall and moving out of our house.    I absolutely loved being away from cars and having nothing but a grocery trip on the agenda each day. I fall more in love with the island…

Happy Birthday Emerson Grace!

Life

I had to work on Thursday, but my mom was able to be at home to meet the carpet cleaners and mosquito guy so that my house was ready for the birthday party (and the market…). Work days always fly by, but I tried to stop and think about my labor and visited Emerson in the nursery IMG_5970.jpg IMG_5971.jpg IMG_5975.jpg IMG_5986.jpg

Labor Day

Life

Wasn’t the long weekend just sooo nice? Although I’m only working part-time now, Matt has been working crazy hours, and it was amazing to have him home for three days of uninterrupted time! Saturday was all about getting our life in order. Gym for me, soccer for Matt! We also went grocery shopping, did all the laundry, and cleaned. Don’t you love knocking out all the chores on the first day? Then the three of us had a date night…

Kicking Off Summer Break

Life The Working World

And just like that another school year is complete! I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t even had time to think about summer. But now it’s here and I have 10 weeks off with my sweet girl! Matt’s parents were visiting last weekend and we did a lot of eating around town. We finally made it to Pecan Lodge after living in Dallas for 4 years! The meat lived up to the hype. Although, we skipped the main line by…

Flowery Shower

Pregnancy Restaurant Reviews

My parents came to visit from NC this past weekend, and we had a blast eating, shopping, and relaxing. We were so busy, that I didn’t snap a single picture outside of my shower on Sunday. I have a small group of friends here in Dallas who were sweet enough to host a celebration for Baby Allen. They went all out with lavender and aqua, and had beautiful jars of flowers for the guests to take home as favors. It…

Bermuda Part II: Exploring the Island

Amazing Restaurants Pregnancy Travel

The rest of our time in Bermuda was spent doing a lot of lounging and exploring different beaches. We also loved the infinity pool at our hotel, but didn’t discover how awesome it was until the end of the trip. Floating on noodles felt heavenly. The beach club at our hotel was perfect for swimming – they had really nice chairs, hammocks, and a restaurant, and it was rarely crowded. We spent a couple of full days there – swimming,…

Bermuda Part I: St. George

Pregnancy Travel

As you probably gathered from Instagram, Matt and I took a babymoon to Bermuda! We wanted a low-key beach vacation, and since so many places have Zika, we landed on Bermuda. I hadn’t heard much about it before we went and have literally never met anyone who has been (aside from a cruise stop) – I’m so glad we discovered this gem that’s so close to the east coast, because it’s an amazing little island! We spent our first three…
