What a GREAT weekend!

On Thursday evening, Mike and I were in the stands at Colby's football game. We knew my parents were coming but we were in for the best surprise!!!  My niece, Christian, and her sweet baby, Elliott, were surprising us with a visit!  I saw them walking up and I was in complete disbelief.  Elliott is 2 months old but the last time we saw her she was only 5 days old.  That's a long time for anyone but especially for a baby who changes so quickly!

Tears filled my eyes and I quickly went and scooped her up!

Press On


It's never lost on me the title that I chose for my blog (or maybe the title chose me!).  Waiting seems to be a constant in my life - and I'm learning to be ok with that.  Because it's in those moments, those uncomfortable times when nothing seems "right", that I look back and realize I learned the most.

So many times during the past few months, I have ached to blog.  To have the time and energy to share what's been going on but it wasn't the smart choice. My tag line was a work in progress - love more, serve more, live more.  And in order to do those things, my blog had to take a backseat for the moment.

And then the doubts started pouring in.  What is my purpose?  What if my good enough isn't good enough?  What if a wrong perception causes someone else to doubt who I truly am?  Self-doubt is a dangerous path.  One that I'm trying desperately to detour from.  Why is it so much easier to believe the negative rather than the positive?

But through the fog of funk, I have been reminded time and time again (and maybe you need to hear it too!) that we were put on this Earth for a reason. Even if we have royally screwed up, God can still use us!  Isn't that awesome?! If we are still breathing, we still have a purpose and that is exactly what I needed to hear. The wait was definitely worth it!

I've got so many things I want to share with you!  Things I've learned (and am still learning!), places we've been, and, YES, finally the house remodel!  

If you are in a season of waiting, hang in there and press on!


It feels so good to be back!  What have you been up to during my little blog break?  I can't wait to re-connect with everyone!

destination: Sneakercon

road trippin' - destination: Sneakercon in Dallas, TX

Another weekend, another road trip logged!  This past weekend saw our party of five load up and head to Dallas for Sneakercon!  What's Sneakercon, you ask? Only the "greatest sneaker show on Earth"!  If you have kids that LOVE sneakers, ask them about it.  I'm sure they've heard about it!  But, more on that in just a bit.  Here's a little recap of our weekend trip...

escape to the Texas Hill Country

Escape to the Texas Hill Country

Mike and I worked till noon on Friday and then quickly loaded up to head to Austin.  Our ultimate destination was Hunt, Texas to pick up Colby from scout camp but we also got to enjoy a few hours of just the two of us too!  It's been a crazy, hectic, full couple of months so anytime we can get away, we jump at the chance!

What's Up Wednesday + linkup!

Happy Wednesday, friends!  Today I'm joining Mel, Sheaffer, and Shay for a little What's Up Wednesday fun!  It's the perfect way to link with their party and also share with Royally Waiting!  Be sure and link up below - Katy, Shelly, and I can't wait to see what you guys have been up to!

What we're eating this week...


On Sunday, Mike, the girls and I made a quick trip down to Houston to make a few returns.  Lucky for me, one of our stops was near Escalante's.  Nothing says lazy Sunday afternoon like chips, salsa, and margaritas!  YUMMY!
