You wouldn’t believe it based on the weather here in Texas, but summer is winding down. The new school year is right around the corner, the pools are reducing their hours, our summer garden has given up on producing fruit, and Labor Day is just a few weeks away to hammer the nail in the […]
When the weather began to warm up in March, I was so relieved. Pretty much all the clothes Isla had worn during the winter were stained, ripped, and had holes in them. Frankly I was a little embarrassed to take her out in half the outfits given their bedraggled state, but I couldn’t justify spending […]
Last weekend, Isla had her 3rd birthday party. She requested My Little Pony this year with a Rainbow Dash cake, so that’s exactly what she got. I was pretty pleased with how everything turned out. The decorations we largely recycled from last year, along with some fresh balloons and a few new My Little Pony […]
Isla is a whopping 3 years old! It’s hard to believe how much she’s grown up this year and what a big, bright, opinionated, chatterbox of a girl she’s become. Isla talks up a storm. It’s just this constant stream-of-conscious ramble. She’s still pretty tall for her age, around 38″. She’s been completely out of […]

This year, we had 2 Christmases: an early Christmas at home in Austin, henceforth referred to as TXmas, and actual Christmas was spent with family on the Oregon Coast, henceforth referred to as Coastmas. We kicked off […]
I hope you all have a fun Halloween!
We’re coming into the home stretch for Halloween, which means the Halloween events are piling up. Saturday morning, we hit up a local fall festival. Isla had her face painted like a cat, got to pet some baby animals in a petting zoo, and played a ton of games. I think her favorite parts were […]
I’ve had my eye on adorable kids’ fall fashion trends since August. I’ve imagined in my head the adorable combinations of tights and scarves and boots Isla would be wearing as the weather cooled down. Instead, my daughter has basically decided the cheapie knit dresses and sandals I picked up for her in June are […]
