Ugghhh....I am so behind on blogging, which pretty much sums up my life right now! I have loads of laundry to do, an inch of dust on my furniture, a baby crawling over hardwood floors through tumbleweeds of dog hair.... and who would even think about cooking a healthy meal, taking the time to work out, or getting a good night of sleep?!?!

AND....My real life friend, Sally, tagged me with an "I'm Fabulous" blog award! Thanks, gurl! Although I am not super sure what this means, thanks anyway!

Here are the rules: share five things you are obsessed with then pass the award on to the five most fabulous blogs you know.

1. CUPCAKES! I am obsessed with cupcakes! Love them. Could eat them every day of my life! I love Sprinkles. Red Velvet is the! I love What About Cupcakes? here in Waco. Try the's to die for! I love homemade cupcakes. I have the best chocolate cupcake recipe thanks to my friend Hillary and Southern Living!!! I will have to share it sometime! I love all the fun flavors you can get in a one serving size and they are the cutest for showers and parties!!! Golly, my mouth is watering now!!!

2. Baby Girl Clothes! I thought having a boy would be so much fun (and I still do), but having a little girl is awesome, too! Dressing her is so much fun! I get lots and lots of comments on Cilla's clothes and bows. I will share more later but for now...these are my very favorite sites!

Head pieces:


Isn't this Precious?!?! This is just the tip of the iceberg!
I love a cute monogrammed outfit. These are a little pricier than some, but they have tons of super cute choices!

Oh, I could have one in every color!

And I LOVE Baby Lulu.
You can get it here or at Nordstrom!

3. Throwing parties!!! I love a good excuse for a party! I love to throw baby showers, wedding showers, and any kind of party. I have a secret deep down obsession with wanting to be an event planner. Maybe one day! Here are a couple of pics from a baby shower I threw for one of my besties before we moved to Texas!

4. Shoes. I love shoes! Maybe 'cause they always fit. They seem to be more loyal to me than my jeans and even some of my dresses! I love heels, flats, tall boots, booties, cute sporty shoes, cowboy boots, flops, wedges.....I pretty much do not discriminate!!!

5. Traveling. Before we moved to Wacko, I mean Waco, we traveled lots and lots. I miss those days. Flint's work situation now just does not allow for us to get much time away. We love to spend the summertime in Lake Tahoe and the winter in Mexico and the Caribbean! We have traveled to all kinds of fun places. Some of my favorites: New York, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Pebble Beach, Vermont, Jamaica,, I miss those days, but we were so lucky to have the time away that we did!

Christmas in Mexico

Boating in Acapulco


The view from my lounge chair...NO KIDDING!

I am with you on the feeling overwhelmed. Roy and I just started a cleaning calendar so we can actually get some cleaning done after work/school. Warren isn't crawling yet, but with him scooting on the floor I want to vacuum more often... at least, that's the goal. How fun that you guys got to travel so much! I'm totally jealous. Hope to see you soon.
