Houston Texans Game

On my family's last day in town (back in November) we went to a Houston Texans game.  This was William's first time to see the Texans play.  As usual, William was in awe of the football game.  He is so well behaved at these football games....because there is so much to watch!  He talks about the football game for weeks afterwards.  :)  Although I was raised as a Dallas Cowboy fan....over the last 10 years as a Houstonian I have fallen in love with the Texans (and most recently JJ Watt).  Hopefully we can teach little William to love both teams!  

  • William was too into the action on the field to look at the camera.
  • The Hattenbach/Gooding family
  • The guys were excited to see a couple of the Texans cheerleaders! #suitelife
  • Trying popcorn out for the first time....he was a big fan.
  • Thanks Dad for the awesome day!
  • Baby boy gets himself so excited during the first half that he passes out during half time!  He woke up from nap time to these two ladies.
  • Hanging with the boys.
  • William ate this entire red velvet cakeball by himself....the thing was bigger than his hands. #hewasinheaven
  • We love nap time during football games! :)
We've had such a fun football season with my family.  So many fun and happy memories were made!!  Can't wait for next season.  :)

ME Time

The last several months have been a crazy mess.  But, a good crazy!  And by mess...I mean a saw dust mess.  When we moved into our home a year ago we knew we wanted to change the kitchen island.  After the miscarriage, I saw lots of time ahead of us.  I felt the need to be occupied and busy.  I needed to check things off my list.  It's like I've been nesting over the last 3 months and I'm not even pregnant.  By the time I am pregnant again there's going to be nothing left to organize or do.  Guess I'll just sit around and eat bon bons and play with baby boy. :)  Back to the mess.....dust, dust has been everywhere.  Thank God William asks me to vacuum because we've been doing a lot of vacuuming!  We extended the kitchen island, a white marble counter top replaced the black granite, our media room bar area got a face lift as well as the floors in our 4th bedroom.  Hopefully, I'll do a post with pictures of all the newness soon!

Outside the house, I've had some fabulous times with my favorite ladies.  I am so blessed to have such a great support system outside my home/family.  These ladies keep my heart happy!  It's hard to believe that Alison and I have been partners in crime for more than 11 years.  I don't know what I'd do without her.  I had a lot of unexpected emotions after the miscarriage and Alison and Stacy have aloud me to talk to them about anything and everything.  They both, in their own ways, get what I've experienced better than anyone else.  xoxo

It's been a great few months!!  I will say that I'm excited for no traveling in the month of January.  Happy Holiday!

We had our first "Friendsgiving" the weekend before Thanksgiving.  It was an extra special Friendsgiving for us because my parents, brother and SIL celebrated with us too!  My mom is a super good cook so this worked out perfect.  :)  As always, Dustin and Skye were the best helpers ever.  They got lots of baby watching/tips that evening!  We had 7 couples (including 2 preggos) and 8 little kids running around the house ranging from 3 months to 6 years old.  The kids had lots of fun playing, coloring and bugging each other.....the adults had fun watching the Red Raiders WIN, eating some yummy food and catching up with each other.

We are so blessed to have such sweet and supportive friends.  My heart smiles when I see our kiddos playing together.  It's crazy to think that some of these friendships started back in 2000.  #bestfriendsforever  Hopefully this is the first of many Friendsgivings to come!!!

No Label In The Fall

I posted here about our summer trip to No Label.  Since we had so much fun the first time we had to go back for more!  No Label is the perfect place to go, in the fall, when the weather is nice.  This trip to No Label was a little different than the last.  We weren't as close to the music and the Wilson kids were with us so, the little man wanted to run around and play.  Hunter was super sweet and let William play football with the big kids.  When William was done playing with Hunter he moved onto his Daddy and Cesar!  We had a great afternoon relaxing and catching up with our friends.

These two had too much fun!

There's nothing better than a day spent with friends out in the fresh air!!
