Weekend Recap (October 18th 2014-October 19th 2014)

Monday is here!

I hope you all are having a great day so far.


The weekend was great and filled with much fun.


 We started the day off by visiting HALS (Houston Area Live Steamers) in Hockley , TX

It’s ran by a non-profit organization and you get to ride the trains for FREE on Public Run Days.

They do accept donations, so of course we made one. 🙂

If you’ve never been and you live near….Add it to your list, because the kiddos will love it….Adults too!

HALS is located at 17400 Roberts Rd, Hockley, TX (at Zube Park)

CLICK HERE to see the 2014 Public Run Days

Here are a few pics from our visit.


Next Up…The Pumpkin Patch!

The kids were super excited and kept asking about going ALL DAY!

No kidding….I do mean ALLLLLL DAY!

We left with a total of 4 pumpkins..1 for each of us.


The Dallas Cowboys put a whipping on the New York Giants and it was oh so lovely.  🙂

DC vs NY Giants 10-19-2014

6-1!!!! It would be so exciting for them to get to the SUPERBOWL.

Fingers crossed!

Next Up….. Model Home Tours

My sister-in-law and I love to look at model homes (so does my Mom).

We ventured out to Fulshear, TX to Cross Creek Ranch.

Cross Creek Ranch Fall Tour

Cross Creek Ranch has a  Fall Home Tour going on at the moment and you get to see 20 decorated models.

Let’s just say that there was a lot of ooooooooing and ahhhhhing going on.

The homes were AMAZING!

Here are a few pics that I captured from various homes.

Media Room

Dining Room

Master Bedroom….It was so comfy looking…I wanted to nap in it!

After touring all the homes we were tired and hungry.

However the trip was well worth it.

That’s it!  

I hope you all had a great weekend as well.

#3 My $1 Halloween Decor Find

My son and I visited Dollar Tree on Thursday and we stumbled upon this cute little sign.

At that instance I knew that I would take it home and find a place for it. 😉

It cost a buck and that wasn’t breaking the bank at all, so that was a great find.

Tre’ had to stay home because he was getting over Strep Throat.

I know this feeling all to well….I had it just last month….UGH!  No fun at all!

Even though her was feeling under the weather, he still kept me on my toes.

We took lots of pictures….many retakes too and the pics still didn’t come out as clear I wanted.

I knew I had to stop, because he told me “Mom, you should have gotten the shot by now.” LMBO…He’s too funny.

#5 Kendall’s Drawings

photo 3 (2)

I love to see what Kendall draws, because it’s so cute to me.

Pictured above is her drawings of Olaf from Frozen, a baby chick and a Cow that is being chase by a bunny.

I love her imagination.  She’s an Artist and I know her drawings will improve with time.

She’s 6 and on a roll…I love my Princess!

Okay….I don’t claim to be Kiescha Woods, but I did alright Tuesday night at TopGolf.

I’ve been wanting to go and I finally got my chance.

It was a networking event, so not only did I have fun, but I met some really cool people.

You would have thought we’ve known each other forever.

All and all this week was great!  

See ya next Friday for next weeks’ favorites.

Happy Monday!!    

It’s Columbus Day and many of you are probably off, so enjoy!

The family and I had a great weekend!  

Here’s the scoop…..


College Football & Family

 Mississippi State is #1 in West Division….It’s been a long time coming.


My hubby attended Mississippi State so he is really PROUD at the moment.

I’m sure he’ll be sporting a Mississippi State shirt to work this week.

MS vs Auburn


Next, I took the kiddos to Wal-Mart (they picked to go here) to get themselves something.

Their Nana gave them some money and they were eager to spend it.

She actually gave it to them last week, but I made them wait to spend it and of course I had to put a little in as well…smh.

Later, we had family over as well and as usual we chatted, watched tv and enjoyed each others company.

I didn’t snap any pics though. :/  Shame on me!  lol


Pro Football

DC vs SSeahawks_10-12-2014

5-1!!  My Boys continue to keep this smile on my face! 🙂  They beat the Seahawks!

They took down those “Superbowl Champs”.  Ha!  We are on a roll baby and I like it!

Later, I watched Resurrection….This is another one of my favorite shows!

What if someone you lost returned from the grave??  That’s some scary stuff.

It reads:”Happy Fall Ya’ll”

# 4 Scarves

I stopped by Charming Charlie with a friend on Wednesday as well and if you’ve been there you know everything is color coordinated.

I was super excited because I haven’t visited in a while.  My friend immediately saw a sign that read:

“All scarves 2 for $20”…From that point on they had me.

You can also get this deal online at Charmingcharlie.com and they have some that I didn’t see in-store.

October 19th is the last day for this deal, so HURRY!
