Hello from Blissdom!

I'm at Blissdom this week and couldn't be more excited about it.

If you're at Blissdom too stop by and say hello. I'm celebrating my birthday while up there so if you see me, tell me Happy Birthday. It might just make my day!

A little intro if you're stopping by for the first time:

I'm from San Antonio. I was born in Texas and made several pit stops around the country before my family ended up back in Texas during my high school years. No we weren't military, even though at the time my dad was a Navy Reservist. We just moved around a lot. I came to San Antonio for school and never left.

Well, part of it had to do with a boy. Isn't that always the case? I met my now husband John during my senior year of college. We met at work and got married 4 years later. We just celebrated 5 years of marriage last year.


Last year was a busy one for us. We sold our first house and bought a fab new to us house that is still stuck somewhere between the 80s and 90s. We're talking a gold veined mirrored wall, glitter popcorn, textured wall paper, and our master bedroom has a platform for our bed. It's made of concrete and isn't going anywhere for awhile because of it. We probably would have done more work on it by now if we hadn't moved during the holidays and I was so exhausted during my first trimester.

Which brings us to the next big news from last year. We're expecting our first and I'm due in late August.


I'll be between 18-19 weeks while up there at Blissdom and sportin' a little baby bump with me wherever I go. Yes, there's a baby in there, and no I didn't eat too many burritos. For now we lovingly call the baby Frijole and will find out whether Frijole is a boy or a girl next week. I'm feeling girl over boy, but we'll find out soon!

I garden, I knit, I have chickens in my backyard. I love all food, anything made out of chocolate, traveling, and a good beer or wine with great friends (even if I can't have any at the moment - the beer & wine, not the friends). I love to have a good laugh and that's one of the reasons I love my husband so much. Even if he steals my jokes and repeats them as his own.

So that's me and all of that up there? That's what this blog is about. Hope you stick around for awhile!


  1. I should have taken off work (read: blown off work due to this miscarriage stress) and gone to Blissdom to be with you.

    I hope you have a fabulous time, love!!!
    Oh, and happy birthday love coming your way in the mail, soon!

    1. You were certainly missed! Hope you're doing well even if you're not here.

  2. Wish I was there but doctors are weird about flying ON your due date, haha. I hope you have so much fun.

    1. Oh those pesky doctors! Having an absolute blast. You should come next year!
