Happy New Year!!


Wait, what is that you say?  Today is not January 1st?  I'm two months behind?  Oops! :)  Here's a little recap from my New Years with some fun friends...
 Lindsey, Erin, and I had a blast ringing in the new year in Uptown!


Hope it's been a great 2012 for you so far!!


Of course, I had to don the New Year's crown!! :)

New Years Day, the gals and I headed to Hattie's in the Bishop Arts District.


The light in the restaurant was so fantastic that my sweet friends indulged me with a little photo shoot. :)

We had such a fun time!

The decor was such a great mix of vintage and modern.
I loved the white ceiling tiles!

So thankful for these sweet friends!!


And don't fret, the menu certainly did not disappoint.

We had to start with the lobster bisque.  Delish!

And when chicken and waffles is the house specialty, one must indulge!

Erin got the mac and cheese which is apparently to die for.
I will have to try this next time!


Such a blessing to celebrate 2012 with these special gals.

Then, they let me take more pictures!!
I LOVE how they turned out! :)

Well, and you know I had to sneak in a little pose. :)
Thanks, Lindsey, for your mad photog skills!


Loved the ornaments hanging from the trees!

We enjoyed strolling up and down the street


doing a little window shopping.

This place sure looks fun!


I would say my first adventure to the Bishop Arts District was a definite success!
Can't wait to return!!


Happy New Year!! :)

On the Second Day of Christmas



I'm sure everyone has been on pins and needles -- here is our Christmas finale!
I even finished the post before March! :)
The day after Christmas, we got a special Christmas treat -- Megan, Edwin, and Mac arrived!!

CC loved getting to feed that sweet boy.

Grandmommie got to hold him, too!

I think Pops likes this guy! :)


Mac loved the Christmas tree

Sweet thing!

Then it was time to open some presents!

I loved this cuff from Aunt Laurie and Uncle Steve!

The inside is engraved with my birth month and other fun words!

Mac had so much fun clapping his hands. :)

Mom and I started a Snow Village for Dad.  This church is his first piece.

Mac and Muvie

Mac and Grandmommie

Fun with CC

Oh I love that sweet face!  
And look at his little teeth popping in. :)
Then, Mac got to meet Auntie Di!!


and Keen!!
And lots of other fun cousins, too!

Then, Aunt Carroll had a little impromptu photo shoot.
This is one of my absolute faves!!

Clapping hands

happy boy



Pops and Mac




So adorable


Later that afternoon Mom, Megan, Edwin, Mac and I headed to Big D to watch our Baylor Bears!

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Blue Mesa before the game.  Yum!

Mac checking on the Bears starting lineup.

Ready to cheer on the Bears!!

Our seats were great!

Thanks, Mom and Dad for such a great Christmas surprise!

Such a fun game to watch!


The next day, we had a little impromptu photo shoot with Mac, CC, and Pops.




Of course Aunt Carroll needed some Mac pics, too! :)


Oh I miss that sweet fella!!




Then, Mac got to try on the fabulous sweater Muvie knit for him.

Then, it was time for Edwin, Megan, and Mac to head home.
But not before we got a great 4 generation photo!

It was so good to see you all!!  Can't wait to see you again soon!
