I am still Alive!

It has been over a month since I last blogged. Shame on me! A lot has happened in the past month. I feel personally too much, but hey it's life!

Well one of the major things was my husband was involved in an accident (not his fault). He is fine...thank goodness!! Our poor truck had some major damages to it. The sad thing is we had only had it for less than 2 months then the wreck happen! My husband had to drive a little bitty car for 3 weeks that he could literally lock all the doors from where he was sitting. At least he had something to drive. We got the truck back last week and you don't know how much you miss a truck until it is gone!

Truck the day we got it!

 The accident....there are damages to the front, but mostly to the back.

Let see what else happened this month.....the BPMS150. If you are not aware of what it is. It is a 2-day bike ride from Houston to Austin. My husband had been training since January and he finally got to ride for the MS150 the weekend of April 17th. I couldn't be more than proud of him. What a great accomplishment! I had tears in my eyes when he crossed the finish line. The long months of training had paid off. He had done something great! I really admire my husband!

About to cross the finish line in Austin!

Crossing the finish line near the Texas Capitol!

Me and my hubby! I am SUPER proud in this pic!

An update on me day time job at the newspaper is keeping me pretty busy. It will start to slow down in June (thank goodness!). Earlier this month I had gone back to my modeling agency to get back into the modeling thing. Surprisingly I was told I was old, but I look the same as I did 4 years ago (I guess that is good). Still unsure if I am going to go ahead with it since we are trying to start our family. Having a family is more important to me than anything! So we will see what will happen in another month.

I will start posting things on weddings again (DIY, flowers, trends, inspirations, etc.)


  1. Erick wants to do it next year :) I kind of do too, but we'll see, I know he will get motivated and go for it though :)

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.

The card that I got through Love them!

This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.

Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....

Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 

The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.

Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!

I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
