Happy News!

Hello everybody! Hope you had a great weekend so far. My favorite part of the weekend was the news of Baby Hayden Witt being born. So, so happy for our friends Drew & Shari. This is such an exciting time in your lives and I'm just ecstatic for you. I'm also secretly remembering all the feelings and emotions I had going through that whole first time experience only 7 months ago. Seriously, it has been 7 months already! How is that possible? I can remember everything so vividly as if it was only a few weeks ago. 

Also, this post has nothing to do with the pictures I put up but as you guys know I hate  posting a blog without pictures.  These are from Thursday night. We had such a wonderful time swimming and fellowshipping with friends at the Vidorra. Zion loved the water as always. Anybody out there know how to teach a baby to swim or have any recommendations? I really want to teach him young but am having a hard time knowing where to start. 

Our hostess Amanda and Shari. Love you guys!
 Eric cooking up some delicious food. Thank you!

I spy Dr pepper!!

 Well that's it for now so I'm just going to head off. Enjoy what's left of your weekend.

Hi guys!
Just a quick blog post here with something I've been wanting to share with all of you. (because I love you) As we have already established I am a product junkie. I love trying out new things and am a freak for cute packaging. I'm what you would call a marketers dream. I will basically love anything if it's packaged in a cute way. **Bunny trail there.** Anyway I recently heard of and signed up for this thing called Ipsy. Basically if you're like me and like to try out makeup, skin, hair and beauty products then this is the way to go. Each month they send you a little makeup bag filled with 5 deluxe size samples or full sized products for you to try that are customized to your profile. Also if you love any of the products and decide you want to purchase they provide you with discounts and coupon codes. I got my first bag in July and loved it so, so much I'm really excited for my next one.
 I really like all of the stuff I got except for the California collection eyeshadow palette. They're a bit dark for my taste so I don't really use them. Either way the value of the products is much higher than what I paid for.
Aside from everything else you guys have to know how fun it is to get packages in the mail. Also it come is a bright pink bubble mailer. Hello awesome! Anyway if you guys are interested go try it out. Here's the link.

Have a great day guys!

San Antonio Museum Of Art

Hey everybody! Here are some pictures I snapped last night. We had a super fun evening hanging out at the San Antonio Museum Of Art with friends. In case you don't know, they have free admission and parking on Tuesday nights. Isn't that awesome! Go check it out sometime. Admittedly one of my favorite parts was the skywalk that sported an amazing view of downtown. So beautiful! 

 So thankful God brought these amazing people into our lives. Love them so much.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a blessed day!

Breakfast Date

Hello guys! I've got a bit of catching up to do here on the blog but this post was in my drafts from a few weeks ago so I'm just going to start by posting this. 

Just popping by to say hi and give you a little peek into a breakfast date we had this week. Nothing fancy. Just a down home German spot called Schilos. It's the kind of place where you get a bottomless cup of coffee and some biscuits and gravy. Maybe thats not your thing and that's ok but we go there every now and again and I like it. I've been told their chocolate chip cookies are amazing and I'm going to find out one day. 

See you guys soon!

Foodie Penpals

Hey everybody! I have something kind of cool to share with you today. Recently, thanks to a friend, I found out about Foodie Penpals over at the Lean Green Bean and decided to sign up. Basically each month you are paired up with a different foodie member and you mail them a box of food goodies. In return you also receive a box from someone else. June was my first month participating and it was so much fun all the way around. If you are like us and you like trying new things, getting packages in the mail and "meeting" new people this is such a great idea. Today is reveal day so I'm sharing with you guys what I got in my box. Thank you so much Kristie!!

We discovered that Kristie lives not that very far from where my Dad was born which I thought was kind of cool. Small world right?

Tried this Sweet Potato butter.....I approve! Yummy. I think I'm going to go eat some right now. :) 

So excited to try this. A popcorn cob. It supposedly pops right off the cob. Whaat? How cool. 

 Wellness Herbal Tea for the tea drinker here. 

 Muth's Modjeskas. Have any of you guys heard of or tried these? They are really pretty good. I've never had any before but its almost like carmel covered marshmallows of sorts. Apparently I'm not very good at describing things but I tried. 
Vanilla Hazelnut Coffee. Yum! Haven't tried this yet but I did a smell test and it smells so, so good. 

 To top it off Kristie added a handmade card. How sweet is that?

Anyway, I had so much fun with this. I sent my box to Becca go check out her blog to see what I sent.
If you guys want to sign up you can click on the link below. You still have time to sign up before July. If you do decide to sign up let me know about it. (If you want. :P )

LIttle Patch Garden

Got to go out to the Little Patch Garden last night to help out on some projects with community friends. It was nice. I did a lot of standing around and keeping the baby cool and happy while I watched everyone else slave away in the heat. Yeah, I win. :) Ha! But thought I would share a few pictures. 


Hope you guys have a wonderful day!

6 Months

Happy 6 Months Zion! 
Can't believe my baby is already half a year old. Whaat!! He is getting more and more fun by the day it seems. I thought I wanted him to stay little but I find that as he gets older I just love it even more. He is sitting by himself, rolling over and scootching around. I can't ever expect to put him down and come back to find him in the same place. He somehow manages to get himself into all kinds of awkward positions. He has also, much to our horror, taken a few spills off of the couch, bed and out of his stroller. :( Scariest thing ever! I think I'm learning. Yesterday he got a little bored and fussy so I pulled out some nail polishes in a box and that seemed to entertain him greatly. That's my funny boy!

See you guys soon!
