My birthday! shenanigans and such…

My birthday was amazing! Thanks to my gorgeous sister-in-law who arranged for a girls night out. First we went to Benjy’s for dinner here in Houston and then… well… out here are a few photos….

Sunday I recovered and swore to never drink again. Monday we went to a St. Patrick’s day block party at my Father-in-laws restaurant,  The Rouxpour in Sugar Land Texas. (and that’s exactly why I don’t swear) ;) Today the big guy and I took Squeaker to play at La Centerra here in Katy because she was (and isn’t) feeling well and we wanted her to just have a mommy, daddy and Squeaks day. Gonna try Zarbee’s tonight. Have any of you mommies tried it? Does it work? I’ll be sure to let you guys know what I think of it after I’ve tried it a couple of times. *crossing fingers*

I’m sure this post was pretty boring. Tomorrows will be better I promise.

Later Lovers!

February Favorites

This past week and weekend was packed! I’ll share a couple of pictures and then jump into my February favorites.

We went to the Houston rodeo cook off. Had a great time and then went and had dinner at Truluck’s. It was SOOOO good. If you live near one you should totally go.

Sunday was pretty chill we watched the Academy Awards. Ellen was awesome! Don’t you think! and Lupita!!! Ugh incredible speech. Such a lovely person!

So here are a few things I was loving the month of February…

This GlamGlow Supermud mask. It’s intense! It pulls out EVERYTHING! worth every penny and it is pricey. It’s not a glamorous do at home mask, you won’t feel invigorated, or like you were at the spa, but it gets the job done. Trust me.

Josie Maran Argan Oil. Obviously I’m obsessed with this entire line but I’ve been using this on the ends of my hair to keep them from completely breaking off and my stylist told me she could see a difference. If you don’t know or can’t tell my ends are purple which means they had to be bleached first. They will need to be cut off pretty soon when I go back to regular old brown :(

You can just find this at your local grocery store. I keep trying different ones and this is just the best. It’s nothing fancy but I love it! I’m having it now actually.

Squeakers Minnetonka’s Trying to find something to fit her narrow, small foot is tough and these work great. Plan on buying another pair soon because she is growing out of these. I bought a TON of things from Baby Gap on sale for her 18 month stash. Should I do a baby Haul post? Comment yes if you wanna see one. I have these.

Let me know what you want to see more of! Thanks for reading and remember to subscribe! Thanks :)

Sesame Street Live!

We went. We saw. We fell backwards out of a chair and cried…. well, one of us, I’ll let you wonder which one.

 

My MIL, who we call Nanny, gifted us with Tickets to see Sesame Street Live, here in Houston! Floor seats at that! Immediately after taking this picture we went to go sit down in our folding chairs. Squeakers chair collapsed on her and she fell out of the back! A couple behind us told us it had JUST happened to their little girl. They were quick to help her up and thank goodness their baby bag was on the floor so Squeaks had a bit of padding, but I mean, Sesame Street…. c’mon! Wasn’t a huge deal though because Elmo came out minutes later and made things right the way only Elmo can. You see that Elmo Squeaker is holding? She calls that “Melmo” and she’s pretty serious about carrying it everywhere, kinda funny since she doesn’t really watch Sesame Street all that often. She’s had it since she was 2 months old and I dare you to try and pry that crusty thing from her hands! After Sesame Street we went to Nannys for dinner and, well, Squeaker fell asleep eating broccoli.

All in all I would say it’s a show totally worth seeing. Squeakers 2.5 yr old cousin COULD’T stop dancing and Squeaks  didn’t mind me stealing Melmo so she could clap. The characters walked up and down the isle so an isle seat is just as fun as sitting right in the middle. We were only 8 rows back and I’m happy because it was just enough room to see the back of the stage without straining. People were polite and helpful and dads hunched over so you could see over shoulders. It was awesome. Just ask the 5 year old girl behind us who was shedding tears and screaming “I loooove you Eeeeelmo!!!!” It was like being at a Michael Jackson concert…. you know….sorta like that…..

Arm Candy and weekend plans…..

I found it. My new bag obsession. Every couple of months or so I find a bag and think, “I’d be willing to eat mustard sandwiches for a month to have that”. Does that make me a bad person? I’m not sure, but what I do know is I’ve found it. the bag I’d be willing to eat a condiment sandwich for months to call my own. I present to you….

The Henri Bendel Limited Edition Confetti Satchel

I’ll be dropping hints about this one until my birthday in March ;)

Tonight we are staying in, the big guy made enchiladas and now we are all hanging on the couch watching the opening  ceremony in Sochi. I love sports. I have always considered myself an athlete, and I have so much respect for people who are, actually, in fact, athletes. lol

Tomorrow I am helping host a baby sprinkle for one of my dear friends, Heather. Who actually got married with me (we will save that story for another day) She will be welcoming her second son soon and we can’t wait!

Sunday, Nanny (Squeaker’s grandmother), Aunt Liv, Squeaker’s cousin Madden and I, will  pack into my car and head over to watch Sesame Street Live. I’m not sure if I should be excited or terrified. Have any of you ever taken your baby to this? If so I’m open to advice, like pack ear plugs….. or you know… whatever…..

Side note: who wants an invite to the Brush & Blush grande opening? It’s invite only so says fire marshal Bill. I kid I kid.

Here’s to hoping THE U.S.A. comes out in Ralph Lauren again and NOT something terrible. Go U.S.A.!

Brush & Blush coming soon to Gateway Memorial City in Houston Texas! eeeek!

My bigger  better half and I headed out to the Gateway Memorial City shopping center for the ribbon cutting ceremony last Thursday. It was very exciting to see that Kuu Restaurant would soon be open; we had some of the appetizers and they were YUMMY! If you don’t know, Gateway Memorial City is on the corner of Gessner and I-10, it will be the home of Brush & Blush as well as several delicious restaurants and other cool places.  Here is a little snap shot of the big guy and me before shoveling food into our faces, and yes my hair is purple now…..

I realize I look upset, I wasn’t I was just freezing! We are so excited to get started on Brush & Blush, construction should start next week and soon we will be taking reservations online! What would you guys like to see in the new place? Leave a comment and I will look into it, promise! I’m just trying to be the Oprah of blow dry bars ;) Thank you so much again for all of the support; we really love and appreciate you!

The Best Sippy Cup Ever. Seriously.

After searching for weeks  months, I have finally found the perfect sippy cup. What makes it perfect you ask? First of all it doesn’t leak, that alone would make it a winner, but thats not all. It has handles, a straw, and a lid that is attached. Gone are the days of crawling underneath a restaurant table to find the lid, the one thing that separates every disgusting germ from the inside of your babies precious mouth. I won’t say that I’m paranoid, but I do assume that Squeaker has the flu the minute she touches the handle of a grocery cart or crawls in my closet and picks up a shoe.  So without further ado, say hello to the ZoLi ‘BOT’ cup

That nifty weight at the end of the straw allows for the straw to follow the milk (or juice etc) around no matter how Squeaker is holding it. Don’t be fooled by other brands that look  like they have the same thing, the straws on some of the other brands are too stiff and don’t work.

I hope you enjoy! What are some of your genius baby finds? oh and honestly…… can you handle the cute? I for one, can not….
