That cover-model life



“That cover-model life”, you know I don’t take myself too seriously, so I say that will every bit of sarcasm BUT if you haven’t heard me gush about it already, I’m ridiculously, overly excited to share with you guys that the minis and I are on the cover of the May issue of San Antonio Magazine! Yes, I know it’s just our local SA magazine but to me, it’s everything; I’m uber proud of it and so are the minis! I adore this picture of my babes. We’re not a sit-still portrait kinda family and this photo perfectly captures my crazies. And the San Antonio skyline in the background like that; how flawless is this memory?!!

It’s taken me 29 years to land the cover of a magazine (watch out Vogue, I’m coming for ya!). It only took these minis: 1, 4 & 6. I think they’re naturals!

About Last Night: Kendra Scott Photo Diary




Last night I hostessed a party at Kendra Scott, La Cantera, to help celebrate the launch of their new summer collection. I had such a fun time partying with some of my favorite bloggers, meeting new friends and, of course, shopping! That store contains too much pretty! See that gorgeous abalone-shell necklace that I borrowed for the night; do you not just love it?!

Scroll on through to see my photo diary of the night, filled with champagne, macarons, sparkles and laughs.

Spring Fashion (and food) at the Boiler House



I’ve been adding a ton of dresses to my wardrobe lately and for a mid-week media dinner last week at the Boiler House, I pulled one of my new pieces out to wear.  Spring is here (actually, it seems like San Antonio skipped Winter and it’s been Spring for a while) and that means colors galore! If you can’t tell from this look, I’m not one to shy away from bold pieces. I love this Jacquard paint-splatter dress and, despite my 11 yr. old son telling me that it was “ugly”, you guys seemed to love it too; thanks for all the sweet comments on instagram!

Spring Break in the Snow

*Thank you to Andrew Marc for sponsoring todays post


The minis and I are fresh home from our spring break trip and we’ve been slow to resume our regular schedule. Alarms have been snoozed up until the last minute and mornings have been a bit of a rush. But it was all so worth it; yes, even flying solo with 5 minis (my 4 + my nephew), but that’s a whole other story!

While most people are running off to beaches and warm weather for their spring break, we went the opposite route and flew up to Minneapolis to see my sister and were wishing for snow.

Accessorizing for Brunch

*Thank you to Victoria Emerson for sponsoring todays post



This past weekend I grabbed a sitter for the minis and headed out to a media brunch at The Pearl Brewery’s Southerleigh. I had just had my first experience there the week before at a lunch meeting and I was excited to dig right into the brunch menu. This place does not disappoint!

It’s always the best time when I get to hang out with some of my favorite local media personalities. These kid-free moments recharge this mama and are always well earned and needed. Working from home juggling a business and 4 minis alone is no joke! Add in some food, champagne and good conversation and, come on, how could we not thoroughly enjoy ourselves?

I cant even tell you how much YUM, so I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
