God signs.

so i'm a firm believer in God signs. some times when i'm troubled or not quite sure what to do, i say a little prayer and ask the big guy above to just a give me a small sign to help me choose the right decision. in the picture below, this road was undoubtedly one: a God sign. back track if you will...before making the final decision on our newest home, i asked God to give me a sign. no sooner than praying about it, i was lead down this road and phillip phillips' song "Home" started playing on the radio. in fact, it was at this exact lyric...

"Hold on to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you're not alone
Cause I'm gonna make this place your home"

minutes later i ventured into a neighborhood that had the most beautiful house for sale. it was everything we were searching for. we now own that house and each and every day i drive down this road to get home. it's absolutely breathtaking to me. it comforts me. it's peaceful and calm.
it's my God sign.

the twinkie birthmonth!!

during the month of april, karla maria and i like to celebrate our special birthday as much as possible. i mean, let's be honest...who wouldn't want to!? we celebrated with our side of the family with dinner at cajun steamer one night...
on a different night, we celebrated with a low key girls night in at my house with some close friends...
 and lastly on my actual birthday, i celebrated with my four most favorite people with dinner at our neighborhood's newest restaurant: villagio's...
each celebration was so much fun and made me feel very blessed! thank you to each and everyone who made turning 32 that much sweeter. much love to you all!! xoxo

moms gone relaxing...

stacy invited christi, jenn, and i down to the beach for a fun relaxing weekend at her family's condo. we enjoyed shopping and eating at pier park, watching the tube and celebrating as the police finally caught the boston marathon bomber, and of course, relaxing on the beach as we gabbed for hours. it was a great much needed beach trip. thank you for having us, stacy! xoxo

ross bridge crawfish boil 2013

we attended our neighborhood's annual crawfish boil that was held out on the green. there was live music, bounce houses, face painting, and of course, those yummy mud bugs, potatoes, and sausages. the girls had so much fun playing with their new friends they have met while living here and we enjoyed chatting with neighbors as well. i can't say enough how much i love the "community" feel here...wouldn't change it for the world. surprisingly, this is the only pic i took during the whole day...
