Mother's Day 2016

 I was completely spoiled on Mother's Day weekend, starting on Friday with some adorable gifts/cards the kids made at school.

On Saturday, Ava and I enjoyed a mother-daughter mani-pedi date (complete with two lollipops for her).

We also made a trip to the local garden store to pick out my Meyer lemon tree along with the perfect pot. I can't wait to use these lemons to make some French 75s :).
On Sunday, I awoke to more gifts: a card complete with cheering hamsters and two beautiful new wine glasses for my collection. 

After a lazy morning around the house, Josh took Ava to run errands and enjoy popsicles at Steel City while Rylan and I both took long, glorious naps.

Finally, we headed to Chuy's, because in my book a Mother's Day dinner isn't complete without chips & queso and a margarita. 

And as I finished the day by snuggling up with Ava, telling her how much I appreciated my special Mother's Day, she asked why there isn't a Daughter's Day. Oh, darling, that is every day!

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.
