Back to the Real World

3 05 2013

The Hubs and I have been back and adjusting to the real world from a fabulous and unbelievable trip that we have said hands down over and over again to each other that it was the “BEST vacation and wedding ever”!

The first part of trip did not start out so fun. In fact, I picked Josh up from the airport the early morning of Wednesday, 4/17th having been in Texas working nonstop for the last few weeks. And as you would know it continues to snow its pretty white flaks all day here in Colorado. Josh called me at work later that day to see if he could come get me early due to the road conditions…having the great bosses that I do I was able to leave work a few hours early. As I get in the car with Josh he informs me that our flight for tomorrow morning (4/18) for my Bestie’s wedding has been canceled!! I am sorry but I was so NOT okay with this development. My fabulous sweet talking resilient husband was able to book us both on a flight for a good ‘ole classic redeye! And yes, the flight was the same day that I picked Josh up at the airport (poor dude spent the whole day traveling..welcome home honey). I told myself I would have a few glasses of wine and sleep on the plane. After a few flight cancellations/delays/changes we finally arrived in Jamaica the afternoon the following day to surprise the soon to be Bride and Groom in the lobby of the hotel! It worked out better then we had initial planned…we arrived in beautiful Jamaica earlier then expected!

I could not have felt more honored and blessed to be there to see my best friend, Cameron since Kindergarten emerge from the girl of “I will never get married” to “this was the best day of my life” bride. And I mean she made one stunning bride!! She radiated pure beauty and complete happiness. And yes I cried seeing her walk down her isle hand-in-hand with her Dad to meet her groom, Mark! Her and Mark our precious together and I love them and loved that Josh and I were there to be apart of their celebration.

I must say we are in love with Jamaica! We stayed at Half Moon Bay Resort and were in awe from the private room that welcomes you at the airport to the details and personal attention at the resort. I mean I could go on and on! It was by far the best resort where we have vacationed. In fact, I asked Josh if we could change our honeymoon vacation to Montego Bay…he is fully onboard..Score!

So now after vacation we are adjusting to being a single husband and wife again for the next few weeks before fire season kick starts again. Josh is in Texas working on the family/friends ranch for the next few weeks. I am maintaining the home front with our life here in Colorado and our 2 girls (aka dogs).

Back to normal life.













Fashion Friday::: Beach Wedding

12 04 2013

It snowed this week, not once but twice. If you have to love the unpredictable weather that comes with living in Colorado. Yet, I find myself cruising the internet in search of the perfect swimsuit. Does it even exist? I mean how do you even shop for a swimsuit online? What body type are you? Hourglass (well doesn’t every woman wants to be hourglass)? Full Bust (ugh YES)? Enhanced Torso? Trim Tummy (what do you mean trim my tummy? You mean it’s not from my wine consumption and sit-ups?)? So while the husband is out of town I am dedicating myself to swimsuit shopping in person at every possible store known to mankind. I have to have a swimsuit by next Thursday for we will be playing beach side with a cocktail in hand in Jamaica for my best friend’s wedding!!!! I love waiting to the last minute..NOT!
And I leave you with a perfect beach wedding outfit if I do say so myself!

I am Colorado bound at the end of this week to spend 8 days with my family!!  I could not be more pumped to see everyone, attend a wedding with my sister, Kimberly, to be Violet’s nanny, a baby shower for my SIL, check out a Crossfit gym, sip wine on the front patio with my parents and listen to the water feature my dad (Check his work out here) put in and the best part is that I will need a sweater!!!  It will be a nice break from this intense Texas heat.  The sweet husband will join me later on in the week….Horray!  So here is a little outfit I am planning on packing….Until next time!

Memorial Day Weekend

For so many (including my husband) Memorial Weekend is not about sitting by the pool or lake with a cold beverage, but a time of sorrow, reflection, and rememberance of the men and women who they served with and have lost.
I am so very thankful for each and everyone of you who have served our great nation!

The Power of Flowers

10 05 2011

I am convinced that we planted our flowers way to early this year. I mean I thought I was being proactive and getting them all planted the first part of April…well let me just tell you I was flat out wrong. And being that my father owns his own landscape company this is just not acceptable! I am blaming the dead flowers on the horrific winds, rain, tornados, hail and whatever else decided to barrel its loving way through the Dallas area. But, don’t you worry because Home Depot offers a year on all plants and flowers! This post is in remembrance to my lost flowers. Love, Kathryn
