Amy's Abilene Baby Shower

This past weekend, we went to Abilene for Amy's baby shower. She's due around mid-November. It's hard to believe that we're finally going to have a boy on my side of the family!

Tasha made Amy a mum.

Mom and Tasha made these.

Ballpark, Coffee Shop, a Breakfast Date & Sleep Walking

Trey scored four free tickets to the Rangers game. I would've joined him, but I had a wedding consultation, that I didn't want to cancel. Plus, after working a 10 hour shift, I just want to veg on the sofa, especially when I'm still getting over this cold…but Trey had a blast having a guys night out.

 I had a low key night. I met with a bride/potential client at a coffee shop, afterwards I picked up the girls from Rosa's, by the time we got home, it was time to get ready for bed.

Today, was bring your Dad to School and Eat Breakfast Day.

Dakota woke up at 9 pm wanting me to carry her. In case you are wondering that dress is her nightgown. She is so stubborn about what she wants to wear and to me some battles are not worth fighting. I let her sleep in her day clothes, if she wants. Right now, she only has a few outfits she wants to wear, this dress is one of them.

Back to Being a Two Car Family

Now, that I'm working more often, on the weekends, we decided it was time for a second vehicle.

This past weekend, while I was filming Trey and the girls were all over the place, riding around. Too bad we can't all ride together, but I know Trey will enjoy having a truck, again. Trey and I plan on driving it around town, on our next date night.

BTW, I'm still sick. It's been over a week. I think I'm finally starting to get better. I miss running, I miss smelling food and I miss being able to taste food!

The Best Dental Patient

Dakota's first dental appointment was a success.

She had a routine check-up. The dentist is happy and she's happy.

I Have Sweet Friends

This past week, Chey was sick, well Wednesday I came down with a head cold, chills, fever and an ear infection. On top of all that Dakota started coughing.

Being sick is tough.

I committed to filming a wedding, so yesterday, I sucked it up and made it through a 13 hour work day.  I woke up that morning with high hopes, since I was feeling somewhat normal, but as the day progressed, my condition got worse. My voice was shot, I had to scream just for people to hear me -- which wasn't really a scream at all - it was more of a whisper. My ears were popping, and my throat felt like it was bleeding and throbbing. I could go on and on and say how horrible it was, but instead I'll turn my focus on the positive stuff, like today how my friends from church bought me goodies, when they heard I was not feeling well.

My friends Dan and Kristin brought me homemade chicken broth and Elderberry Syrup.
Rosa, my friend who watches the girls made Dakota and I cinnamon flavored water. Dakota loves this stuff. Oh, and Krista and Casey took Cheyenne to church today. My friends are the best!

Going back to Saturday ---
During the day, I tried to keep my energy up, by eating some quick snacks.

This was me at the wedding reception. All smiles, trying to smile my pain away. Smiling and being positive did help, some....I'm glad to be home and resting up. Night. Night.

Prescribed Breathing Treatments

Even though she all smiles in this photo, Cheyenne is sick. She has either a viral or bacterial infection. She's been coughing since, yesterday. The doctor is concerned because she is also wheezing. Chey was prescribed 2 medications and breathing treatments, every three hours.

She is so ready to be back at school. This girl was so upset to miss picture day. She felt a little better, when I told her there would be a make-up day for pictures. Dakota doesn't mind that sister is sick, that just means, mommy gets to stay home from work and Chey doesn't go to school...so she's in no hurry for Chey to get better.

A Night Out. Sundance Square. And a Morning at the Trailhead.

A little night on the town, Saturday Night....
Trey and I explored Sundance Square. This was our fist time out there, since the city added the canopies and fountains. We loved it, even though it was a little rainy, windy and cold.
We had dinner at Cowtown Diner. The food was delicious!

This morning, my neighbor/wonderful run buddy --  Amy picked me up and we went to the Clearfork Trailhead. Every Saturday, they offer free outdoor exercise classes. We got there an hour early, so we went for a run, right off the Trinity. We ran four miles and then did the boot camp class. It was so much fun and the weather was around 59 degrees!!!!
Here's a photo, from when the girls and I went -- last year.

A Happy Birthday

Last week, we celebrated Angelica's birthday at our house. She is 12 years old. We had her birthday party on a weeknight. So, I went all out and made cupcakes from scratch, you know...

Look how much she's grown. (Christmas 2006)

Season Passes (Because One Season of Fun Was Not Enough)

Last year, we had season passes to Six Flags. Amanda and her family told us they were renewing theirs, so we decided to join them. We got a pretty good deal - our passes are good for this 2014 season through next year. We also got the Hurricane Harbor, combo pass.

My fall wedding calendar is filling up! It's an incredible blessing. Since my first fall wedding is quickly approaching, I'm trying to make the most of family time, now before my weekends are filled with wedding ceremonies, receptions and long editing sessions.

Next weekend we're going to Hurricane Harbor.
