July Happenings

In addition to our wonderful trip to POC and our visit to the Dallas World Aquarium, we had a lot more fun throughout the month of July. Since I am trying to play a little blog catch-up, here is the rest of the month according to my iPhone photos...

A fun night out with old friends. 

The joy of queso. 

Ava snuggling up with her Dada when he was sick. 

Some unexpected "thank you for being a wonderful wife and mother" flowers from my love.


Free slurpee day at 7-Eleven. 

A rainy-day activity using stale cereal. The dogs were very happy to eat the rogue pieces. 

An it's-waaaay-too-hot-to-go-outside activity.

Another keep-your-toddler-busy activity (are you seeing a theme here?)...using all those random address labels that come in the mail as stickers. 

Trying out a new recipe for banana muffins. Definitely a keeper.

A new TV in the kitchen! Best. Thing. Ever. 

A playdate with friends (followed by a ridiculously fun Cards Against Humanity game night for all the adults). 
The result of staying up too late during the aforementioned game night. At least one of us, ahem, was awake to chase around the toddler all morning.

Enjoying lots of park time during a miraculously cool weekend in the middle of July.

Watching soccer with Dad. 

The essentials.

My little girly girl, who insisted on wearing her pearls in the bathtub.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
