Ft Worth Botanical Garden...


We went to the botanical gardens last weekend after a failed attempt at the zoo. It was spring break and there were police directing traffic in and out of the zoo. Yah. Not going to make it with a one year old.
The gardens were gorgeous and Jack had a great time running around and looking at the fish.

I love those two. :]

We have/had big plans today, but Jack decided it was time for a nap RIGHT before we left. So, we're here...waiting on him to wake up. :] Toddlers...

I hope everyone that attended the AZ Blogger Meet Up had an amazing time!!!! I wish I could have gone but I couldn't even make my brother's wedding last night. :'[ Sometimes living so far from my family is hard.  My husband is doing a great job at cheering me up today and I hear that the wedding was beautiful. :]

I cut my bangs. I'm not sure if I like them yet, but it's done. Hmm...

So, this is where I whine about my job.... Just kidding.

I have been extremely busy these last two weeks. I have a goal this stay up long enough to see my husband for a few minutes. Sad, huh? It's ok. I was reminded today that when I get into my routine, things will get better...(thanks maryum) :)

I will blog about our trip to the botanical gardens and this coming Sunday we're going to the zoo!

I've been away...


and working...

and working!! 

 I got my dresses!!! I'm wearing one to the zoo tomorrow & for a picnic. 
I can't wait!
 Jack is adorable as always.
 Lots of playing outside to avoid the mess of the apartment. 
I got so overwhelmed the other day that I had to just escape to the patio for the afternoon.
Then my amazing husband cleaned while I was at work. 
He is awesome.
I got lots of cuts and bruises this week at work. 
But I got paid so YAY!

New job...

I am a sous chef at a cafe now! It's so exciting and SO much work!! I'm having some Jack and Jeremy withdrawals as I am hardly home at the moment. The cafe opened today for the first time so this week is way busy. Hopefully next week will die down a little.

We are hopefully going to the zoo this Sunday with Jack. We're really excited!

I'm planning a small little giveaway soon and when I get my Red Velvet dresses, I'll have some outfit posts.

I love Red Velvet.

I'm totally late on this, but I'm in LOVE with Red Velvet's new dress line. I had to pick up a couple dresses for the spring! I can't wait to get them and show them off! 

(it's still available!) 
(Still available, too!)

I did miss out on a few that I really loved...

They are all so so pretty and I can't wait to see them!

New Place...

The Living Room

The Kitchen

The Dining Room

Jack's Room

I'm not exactly done, but my mom is a rockstar and helped with EVERYTHING. She seriously saved my life. I've been sick all week and moving and working... ugh. 
My mom left this morning and I'm already missing her like crazy. 
Hopefully I'll see her again in a few weeks. 

Until then, I am working on a little "favorite things" giveaway and a couple other posts!
Thanks for hanging out while I was away! :]
