Summer lovin'.

In case you didn't know... 

I quit my job here in Texas at the end of June because it wasn't all that I had envisioned and it ended up being a little more stressful and disappointing than I would have liked. However, I can say that I did learn quite a bit about myself through the whole experience as well as the work I would like to be involved in in the near future because of it. And it did provide us with a way to make a living while being in Texas this summer so that we could spend some good quality time with my family for a little bit, which is exactly what we've been up to lately! 

Thanks to Pinterest, I've been able to get in touch with a crafty side of me that I never really knew existed! Not having homework or a job means I actually have time to do all the fun crafty things that I've "pinned" and I love it!

Here are some cute little hair bows I've made for our sweet baby girl using this tutorial.



I also made an envelope style pillowcase using this tutorial and I must say, it turned out pretty good for my first major sewing project!



My mom wanted a cute cake stand for the cupcakes to be displayed on at my baby shower, so what did we do? Thanks again to Pinterest, we went to an antique store, found a lovely plate and crystal glass, glued them together and made this adorable thing! 




On the 2nd we were able to see our baby girl via ultrasound one last time before we meet her in person. It's so neat to see how much she has grown over the past 8 and a half months...it's hard to believe we could be meeting her any day now!



Madre and Jeff decided to become members of the country club for this summer so that we could all go swimming to beat the hot Texas heat and boy have we enjoyed it!






Summer always has been and I think always will be my favorite time of the year. I love the food, weather and activities that come along with it! This one has been especially neat since I've been able to share a Texas summer with my love.
