I am trying to catch up a little. I have taken more on at work, which has been a great move for me but it has also left little time to update the blog. So this is my feeble attempt to catch up. There is really just a lot of pictures of Channing but that's all anybody really cares about anyway right? Ha ha ha.
Her vocabulary, smarts and wit continue to surprise us every day and make us laugh all the time. She continues to be VERY strong willed (I have NO idea where she gets that!) but very very sweet at the same time!

She picked out the outfit below for school pictures along with my necklace to go with it. Her eyes were acting up that day and I asked them to let her take her pictures with her sunglasses on. Of course when I got the proofs the other day she has them off and has her eyes half closed in all of them.

Last weekend I went on a moms trip to Canyon Lake and had the best time. We went to Gruene Saturday night for a concert and had a blast. Such a fun weekend with the girls!

Apparently that (below) is a tumbleweed. I have lived in Texas my whole life and have not seen one of these.

The deer there were insane. They would walk right up to you and eat right out of your hands. They were so cute and sweet and it was such a fun experience.

I was so excited to hang out with this little Pirate when I got home. She even let me be her first mate.

AND that brings me to FALL! One of the most wonderful times of the year. I am now hoping that October brings cooler weather!

Overnight Date!

Who is watching Bachelor in Paradise? It is like a train wreck that we cannot stop watching. Anyhow, I told Chandler this morning that I was excited about our overnight date. Made me think of the Bachelor hahaha.
So Chandler needs to work from home occasionally and so we improvised and got a console/sofa table from CB2 to use as a make shift desk when he needs to work in the evenings at home. I haven't really styled it yet but I love the table nonetheless. I cant wait to show you the chair we got for it too. I plan on getting two baskets for storage to go under it when we entertain. YAY!

I have been getting up earlier in the mornings to try and make things go smoother for Channing and myself. We are not as rushed but since I have been getting up earlier I am tired and have not had much motivation to do my hair. This look is what I like to pawn off as 'beachy' hope it works because I didn't do one thing to my hair this morning.
I will report on Tulsa tomorrow! We are going to eat at a highly recommended sushi place that I cannot wait to tell you about!

This week seems to be going slower than usual but maybe that is because I get to go on a little work trip with Chandler tomorrow evening. Its not too exciting but I am excited to spend some date night time with him. We LOVE having Channing go everywhere with us but this is just a fun surprise!

Speaking of... my sweet little one is a night owl and is having a hard time falling asleep as early as I think she needs to. So in the mornings she has been extra tired. Not even eating all of her waffle for breakfast and that is just not like her at all. But I do not mind the fact that she lets me cuddle her first thing in the morning right now. I cannot get enough of that! Too soon she will be too big to sit on my lap and I will soak it up while I can.
Yesterday was National Dog Day and so I thought I would post pics of our sweet pups. They are getting old but they sure are funny and sweet.
Yesterday we started soccer practice up again for the fall! I LOVE fall and Channing was excited to start soccer back up. She did great at practice and she seems to know more about what is going on when she is on the field! Should be a hoot!

And since it is mid-week and sometimes we need encouragement from up above I thought I would leave you with this below.

My Sweet Silly Girl!

Channing is constantly making us laugh with her personality. She IS really funny and says things that really crack us up!

She is such a girly girl and she brings her purse with us most of the time! She told me at Mi Cocina that she had a mirror, lipstick (chapstick) and a brush just in case I forgot mine.
She likes the finer things in life like Perrier. We don't drink soda at our house usually but this is one of my favorite drinks. The grapefruit one is SO good and she loves it. She says it is spicy... which in her world means the bubbles burn a little. I think she thinks that it is cool to have a drink just like momma.
She loves when we are silly with her. I actually had to coax her into this silly picture because she didn't want to go to school that day and was sad. Hey anything to make this sweet girl feel happy.
She ran into the bathroom last week and told me that she 'looks like Michelle' (tanner) Thing is she really DOES kind of look like the Olsen twins to me. Maybe the nose? I laughed so hard when she said that!
She lets me take pictures of her daily... even when she doesn't really want me to.
She is a girl after my own heart and loves her costume jewelry... bonus if it is tasty too!
Most of all this sweet girl is a beauty inside and out. We keep telling her how smart sweet and beautiful she is. I hope she knows!

Dimples and Dandilions

 Channing and I had the greatest opportunity to check out the cutest boutique in Frisco Dimples and Dandelions! Seriously the cuteness in the store is redonk. I really had a hard time choosing  a sweet outfit for Channing. I just kept telling the sweet owners how cute everything was!

I finally decided on this PERFECT little tulle and gingham dress. It was the best outfit for the first day of Pre-k!

It is no secret I need help with my photography skills but I had so much fun letting her play so I could sneak in some pictures of this adorable dress!

 The quality of their clothes is awesome and Channing absolutely loved twirling around in this Fancy dress!
If you have a minute and you know any cute little boy or girls you should totally check out Dimples and Dandelions!! You do not have to live in the Metroplex or even in Texas to shop them! Check out their website! They are even on Facebook , Twitter and Pinterest!
Thank you  Dimples and Dandelions for this sweet opportunity!
Check them out and follow them! You won't be sorry and your kiddo will be the best dressed in school!

Marathon Kick Off Run!

Last Wednesday night we ran the official 80's party kick-off race for the Dallas Marathon!
We had so much fun and Channing loves to 'race' with us and because it was not a long race it was easy to bring her along!!

Such a little lady!

They gave out 'cool' shades at the finish and Chandler and Channing actually were the first stroller team to cross the finish! Channing LOVED that!!
Love that she wants to be a runner like us!
We have several races coming up! We are running the Dallas half this year. Maybe someday we'll get back to the full. Hopefully!

Hello Kitty! Channing Turns 4!

Our sweet girl turned 4 in March and she requested a Hello Kitty Party! I immediately started going to Pinterest for ideas on a chic theme party! I was pretty excited with how it turned out but the best part was seeing Channing's face that morning. She loved it all!
Her cousin surprised her from Colorado again this year! She kept asking for months if Judah was coming to her party because we sent her an invitation. It was hard to keep it a secret but when she saw her that morning she said 'I knew she would come'!! Oh the sweetness!!
