A Fabulous February

Am I the only one that is shocked that it's already February?! Not to mention that it's been 65 degrees in OKC the past 3 days - global warming, anyone?

This February is going to be a great month, but I just know it's going to fly by! After this weekend, I've got BIG plans every weekend of the month!

To celebrate Valentine's Day a wee bit early, M and I are going to Dallas on the 11th to have some "us" time away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and the daily "need to do" lists. Our celebratory dinner will be at Ruth's Chris on Saturday night - I couldn't be more excited! Thank you Nanny for the generous gift card!

The next weekend, I will be heading back down to Dallas to meet Mommacita! We are going to celebrate her birthday with some girl time and do The Color Run. Seriously... how fun does this look?! I am pretty homesick right now, so this trip is much needed, and I'm counting down the days!!

The final weekend in February will be spent with M and our sweet friend Caitlin. She gifted us a photo session about this same time last year, and it's time to update our pics! I am so excited to spend some time with this sweet girl - and have some pictures I can finally give to Mommacita! (See Momma? I'm a good girl!)

Here are a few of the shots from last year...

Plans for Doublemint's bridal shower are well on their way! My sweet friend Kelly is going to start working on the invitations and other fun paper items this weekend - My excitement for this party is just growing!!

I have so much to be thankful for... but in those moments where it seems like life is just too hard and it's kicking my booty, I receive wonderful encouragement from my friends.

The other night, I was really frustrated in my quiet time with the Lord. I was crying out to him, and I felt utterly alone. The next morning I got a text from my doublemint that said: "As I was praying for you last night, I was just receiving Psalm 34: 4-8 for you. The Lord hears you and he is FOR you!" MAN! Can you ask for a more direct answer from God? We are so blessed to be loved by such a wonderfully powerful and loving God.

I hope you've all had a great week - kiss, hug and tell those you love that you love them. It's always so nice to hear!

Live life glamorously,



  2. Eeek! :-D I am SO excited to take pictures of you cuties again!! :)
