New Home, Coming Soon

We moved here April 2017, and the plan was to rent for a year, find neighborhoods that we liked for long-term living, and buy after our lease ended. We looked at a lot of areas and every now and then we found houses that we liked, but the few that we loved were off the […]

Just Checking In

It’s been a few months; let’s catch up. Marriage + Momming Things have been pretty good. In August we moved down the hall to a smaller unit. It’s over 1k less than what we were paying before, so we’re saving a lot of money. We don’t have any space, but surprisingly it hasn’t been annoying. […]

Dirty Thirty

Brain Tumor Run Weekend

So I just got done baking oatmeal raisin cookies, and now I‘m watching Criminal Minds. DeAndre is napping, so I’m just lounging around before I have to cook and unpack our clothes. We went to Houston this weekend, and had such a great time. Friday morning I had an appointment at MD Anderson. It was […]

What A Week

So I don’t know how it’s possible to have the best day and the worst day of your life in a one-week time-span, but that definitely just happened. Last Monday I found out that I was pregnant, and I guess if you don’t know me well then you have no idea how happy I was. […]

How Can Something Be So Fun, Yet Uneventful?

So I really like living in Fort Worth. I feel like I do a lot, but in reality I don’t know how true that is. lol. I love that I get to see my dad and my family up here. I’ve never really lived that close to him, so it’s nice to be near him […]
