Favorite Texans

Happy Saturday! My husband has been a Texans fan since as long as we've been together (9 years in May) and today, they played their first Playoff game ever! We went to the store to get goodies to eat while we watched- while we were checking out- he got a call from a friend that offered him a ticket to the game. He politely turned it down, said he would rather watch it with us. What a sweetie. :) So- I made some yummies I found on Pinterest- and we had a great time cheering on our Texans.. We won, by the way. I'm not a big sports fan- but it's fun to get excited about it and make it a family event- especially with a future linebacker in the family... Haha kidding. Owen's favorite thing to do right now is take a wet paper towel and 'wipe' the floors and tables with it.. He's not throwing passes quite yet. ;)

The photo a day challenge is 'favorite' today.. So I'm going to show you my favorite perfume! It's Pure Grace by Philosophy. It smells very fresh and clean and I love how light it is. I don't like to smell like I'm actually wearing perfume- I think someone that smells like they've just freshly showered smells amazing.

Obviously- i'm weird about smells. You should see me trying to pick out a candle. Xoxo

15 Month Checkup

Owen is 15 months old today! We met daddy for lunch this afternoon and then went to his 15 month checkup. Some words Owen is saying are: Dada (all day every day, everyone is Dada) Mama (only when he wants something) Puppy (sounds like puh-pai) Lola (woah wah) Baba (his bottle or sippy cup) Nana (my mom) Dat (when he wants me to reach him something- he'll point and say 'that') Du (Donald Duck toy in the bathtub) Di Di (dip dip- if he's not eating his food- we'll give him ketchup or Italian dressing to dip his food in) Bye bye Ball Hedo (hello- when he holds up a phone or anything to his ear) My OOTD- had a special little accessory. ;) Broke in my new purple jeans!

Today was also Jeremy's last day at his old job and the start of his 9 day vacation until he starts his new job! We're not going anywhere- just staying here, getting our house organized & doing fun things with Owen around Houston! I'm excited for our 'staycation'! We kicked things off tonight with a dinner al fresco!

Some stats on Owen: Weight- 25 pounds- 70th percentile Height- 33 in.- 95th percentile. Head size: off the charts.. Clothes: 12-18, some 2T pajamas Shoe: size 5 Favorite food- cucumbers and pickles Owen's always had a big head- so no need for worry. For the Photo a day- its something that makes you smile- what could make me smile more than a happy, healthy, little baby boy? Well- his freshly folded laundry, of course!

I've always loved doing laundry.. There's no better smell to me than one of Owen's little baby shirts right out of the dryer! Hope everyone had a good week! XOXO Haley

Something I Wore

Want to see something glamorous??

Yup- that'd be a ketchup stain on my leg... We played with some friends at the park today- then hit up Sonic for happy hour! Hey- it's technically something I wore (and am still wearing) right? ;) Here are some pics of Owen and one of his best friends, Gracie..

They had a whole park to play in and they chose to sit on a bench by their mommies. :) XOXO Haley

Walking on Broken Glass

Oh goodness- what a morning we had. A little backstory- whenever Owen eats, we put Lola outside because he thinks it's funny to feed her his food. This morning, he was just finishing up his breakfast when Lola scratched on the window to get in. She always does this- so I usually ignore her.. Well, she did it again and we got this...

About 2 hours later, it was cleaned up and we had a new, unbroken window. Oh that dog. This afternoon, I watched my BFF's 2 kids while she had a meeting with her builder about her new house! (so exciting)

Yes- Owen still has his jammies on- just woke up from his nap! :) Today's photo is supposed to be of a 'letterbox'. I'm assuming that means mailbox? Well- here's ours:

Nothing too exciting- I miss having my own personal mailbox with the little red flag on the side- but I get that these are more efficient. Sometimes, when I've had a long day, I completely forgot which little slot is mine. ;) XOXO Haley

Photo a Day Número Dos

Today's 'assignment' is something you adore.. That's an easy one.. My family! I adore my husband for giving me the opportunity to stay at home with our son.. There's nothing else in the world i'd rather be doing. Here's a pic of the boys making Christmas cookies back in December.

For lunch today, Owen and I met up with some friends at Lopez. Owen was a bit too busy for me to snap a picture of everyone, but I did get a pic of my outfit...

I really do need to get a good full length mirror. :)

Hope everyone had a lovely day.

XOXO Haley

January 2012 Photo Challenge

I've seen a photo challenge floating around Pinterest and Twitter & have decided to play along! Here are the 'assignments'...

Here's a pic of me on New Year's Eve with Jer and Owen...

The dress is from Old Navy.

I went out this morning to pick up some PJs for some of Owen's friends and snapped a pic of my outfit..

I forgot to get a picture of my breakfast- but it was a bagel with vegetable cream cheese & coffee. I'm sure I'll eat the same thing tomorrow & will snap a pic!

Today is Lola Rae's 5th birthday! Here's my favorite picture of her when we brought her home, at 7, weeks! I know I don't give you nearly as much attention as I did before a little redhead came along, but I love you just the same!
