Sparklers Pool Party

At the end of our spring soccer season, one of the familes hosted an end-of-year pool party for the Sparklers. The girls (and parents and siblings) had a blast. It was such a great way to end the kindergarten year and kick off the summer. 

Ava loves this fun group of girls!

And the parents are pretty fantastic as well.

Mother's Day 2018

I kicked off Mother's Day weekend this year with a celebration at Ava's school. The sweet kindergarteners performed several songs, and I definitely teared up. It was so, so adorable.

Ava painted a beautiful frame for me and also created a special book all about her mama. The kids also served us breakfast. It was such a wonderful morning. 

She knows me so well. 

I love my sweet little office garden made from Mother's Day gifts.

For actual Mother's Day, Josh flew to San Antonio to surprise his mom (Rylan better be taking notes!), so the kids and I spent a low-key weekend at home. 

I only had to cook one meal, clean up one bathroom accident, and break up about 10 sibling fights. There was also lots of snuggling on the couch and a nice glass of wine outside. I call that a win.

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. 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; Topo Chico; reading; coffee; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows and podcasts; 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. That pretty much sums it up.
