Oh, dear blog, I can't abandon you another day!

We made it back to Jersey safe and sound last night. I cried at the airport...and on the plane. The birth of my nephew, Nathaniel, has truly recharged my crying spells that used to accompany Texas goodbyes so long ago. I love that little chunker.
Nathaniel is wearing: a shirt I bought him @ H&M
I got him a Ramones one, too :)
Today (Friday) was supposed to be my day of blogging and doing a San Antonio highlights post and catching up on my daily reads, but I totally forgot that my good friend Marla and her boyfriend were flying into town to spend the next five days with us! (Marla and I met when we were stationed in Las Vegas together, but we've kept in touch very well since going our separate ways. Plus she's a fellow Texican [Mexican-Texan, lol] so we've always been bonded in that sense.)
Anywho, it's almost 10:30 p.m. and we're all turning in for the night that way we can wake up early and drive into New York City to spend New Years Eve watching the ball drop - something I've always wanted to do! NYC is only 20 minutes from our apartment, but we're anticipating a cluster-fudge of traffic going in; I don't even want to think of what we're going to deal with coming home at night, but I'm gonna say a prayer. :)
I can't wait to get back to my daily blogging schedule and update y'all with some of my favorite moments from our Texas trip! Like the one where I revisited my first elementary in a small Texas town. I had such a great time that day! And oh yes, there will be outfits.
Wishing you all a happy new safe out there!

Bear hugs,


  1. I love his shirt!
    I am SOOO beyond jealous that you're going to see the ball drop, but not jealous of the traffic/crowds of people/cold weather! lol
    Love yah!


  2. Oh and you NEED to check out "Born to Die" and "Video Games" by Lana Del Rey. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

  3. dude, i was literally 20 min away from calling you and begging you for a blog update!! i'm officially addicted to y'alls life! lolz. Also, i'm super stoked for y'all to be goin to times square for n.y.e.!!! :) miss you!!!

  4. HA! I just commented earlier today about needing my fix. OMG, NYE in NYC? I am getting a panic attack just thinking about it. You guys be safe, have fun and take lots of pics. Speaking of that Beatles shirt! And how stinkin' cute is Nathaniel?


  5. Nathaniel is a little cutie! Your new years plans sound amazing, I hope that you enjoyed them :)! I'm so sorry I've not been about for a while, I had tonsilitis, and then with the christmas celebrations I've not really had time, I'm glad to be back (and posting soon!) xo

  6. where are the new posts????????? lol

    ........and how was it seeing the ball drop in the city. I've always wanted to go ..and I attempted to for nye11 but by the time we got there is was already way too crowded and all the streets were blocked off (to walk on) so I gave up. lol.

  7. Aww the little "chunker" is sooooo adorable! I always miss home too, but as I get older, I'm always happy to be back in my own space. Vegas was a blast! So quick story: I get on the shuttle to the airport in Vegas and some random guys starts up a conversation by asking where I was from. I said "Texas" and he says "Oh really me too!" then he says " What part?" I say " San Antonio." He says " No way me too!" So by now I'm thinking he's pulling my chain then before I can say anything else he says "Yeah, I went to Judson!" I was like OMG me too!!! Small world!

  8. Thanks for all the Nathaniel-Love, gals!
    I'm going to use the free moments I have right now to catch up on making some posts! Weeee!!

    That is a trippy story! What a small, SMALL world indeed! :) I totally remember playing Judson in football games, haha. I went to Holmes. I'm so glad you enjoyed your time in Vegas!!

  9. Thank you, Marnie. :) Thanks for stopping by!
