Be Your Own Light

To be honest I am still recovering from this past weekend. My husband and I had a little get away to Austin alone without our children and I feel so behind on all of my regular mommy duties! Well to be fair, we only lasted one night instead of the intended two. It felt so good to be alone without interruptions, but we missed our kids and came back earlier than expected haha. 

While being back in Austin, TX I thought a lot about what I wanted for myself and for my blog for the remainder of the year. It's been difficult these past few weeks adjusting. Between juggling a full time career, a newborn, a toddler, and now more than ever investing more time on the blog I feel overwhelmed at times.

New Life As a Mommy of Two

Life Update

I still can't believe I am a mommy of two kiddos! Gavin is three weeks old and we are finally out of the house running errands and finding our groove.

I would be lying if I said it's been easy. To my surprise, Gavin is the easy one! His newborn routine has not been the hard adjustment for me, it's my three-year old daughter Aubrey that has been tough. She wants to be involved in everything.

To be honest, I have been researching microblading techniques and aestheticians that live in the Houston area for about 8 months now.

Our Babymoon 

In Las Vegas

Being 33 weeks pregnant in the Las Vegas heat wasn't the first place that popped into my head to spend a weekend alone with my husband. As some of you know, my husband at the moment was training for his first men's physique competition. So both of us naturally were unable to drink or partake in what previous Las Vegas trips have entailed for both of us.

But one of my best friends was getting married in Vegas so we decided to go for it and enjoy what could be one of our last weekends alone together!
