Family Pictures

We finally went out & took some family pictures!! Out of almost 200 pictures, there were only 17 that i loved, but thats ok!! 17 is alot! We went to Gruene, Tx (said like "green") and had my mom take them around that little town. When lyric turns 1 (in only 2 weeks! AHH!) We will probably go and have some done at walmart, jc penny, something like that. Im so excited. I love having family pictures. Im grateful to be able to document these memories and have pictures of our family for our kids to see one day. I love my husband and all his hard work, and especially the love he shows towards Lyric & I! I am forever grateful. Anyway - not too much is new around here. I'm now 26 weeks pregnant and cant get over how much this little guy is moving! I cant believe i only have about 3 months left. Im hoping he comes in December! That'd be so fun to have him in time for christmas. Im SO SO SO excited for the holidays this year! Lyric still isn't old enough to understand what birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are.. but atleast she knows how to get excited! I love that she's growing and learning each day.

Here are a few of our family pictures we took this past weekend... Enjoy!



So I came across a website, www.pinterest.com, which I saw MANY people talking about. If you haven't checked it out or become a member, I HIGHLY recommend it. I dont even know how to explain it, other than saying it's simply amazing. You can get so many ideas for just about anything. Recipe's, DIY crafts, home decorating ideas, holiday fun, etc.

Well, before i found pinterest, i had made it a goal to find new recipe's and try making new things! Im happy to say that i'm on a roll! Here are a few recipe's i've tried out in the past week that i love!

Fast creamy shrimp and mushroom pasta


Slow Cooker Jambalaya


Crock Pot Chicken Teryaki
