Pit Stains

"It wouldn't be a Texas summer if the weather were any less hooter than they - HOTTER than they are. Whew. It is hot out there, isn't it?" -Clark W Griswold  (slightly modified)

It's a scorcher out there...it's days like this that give you the undeniable pit stains and sweat running down your back.  I am definitely a fall/winter kind of gal.  I love cool weather...so why the heck do I live in Texas do you ask?  Because my husband move me here!  Where he goes I shall follow....I love him yes I do!

I wouldn't be able to survive this madness without an iced tall caramel macchiatto and a mini fan blowing in my face 24/7 at work.  Which by the way causes severe dry eye when you are staring at a computer screen all day. 

Terence and I are doing fairly well on our "eating healthy" kick.  Minus the few slip ups this past weekend at the wedding and a visit to the Cheesecake Factory last week.  Both occasions totally worth the extra cals too!

Example of dinner :

I'm digging spinach salads with feta and summer tomatoes
My little booger is growing like a weed and I wish time would slow down just a bid right now.  He's at such a fun age and he's mimicking everything Terence and I do.  He LOVES So You Think You Can Dance?  Every time he sees it on the TV he gets absorbed in the music and dancing and starts spinning around in circles.  Cutest.thing.ever.
I am in love with this crab outfit from Zulily for $11.99!!!
And guess where it's from???
Mud Pie (I love)
Aunt Bonnie sent Connor the cutest owl jam jams.  They are also from Zulily.  They glow in the dark, but we haven't tried that yet!

My boys drenched in sweat
Poor little red faces
So big and curious....my little Curious George
I'm trying to enjoy each and every moment of this time I have with my baby.  Everyone is asking when is #2 coming?  The truth is there probably won't be a #2 and if there is it will be several years.  We know what we can handle emotionally, physically, and financially....it doesn't mean I wouldn't love more children.  It's  the fact that I also want to be responsible about it and give my child the best quality of life possible.  And for now I am content, and I feel blessed to have my one baby boy.  I'm in love with him, and living life....and that my friends is good for me ;)

@Amber haha or between the girls.

Becky- I feel you on the heat and humidity. I live in very south GA (courtesy of the USAF!). Ahh the baby #2 question. It took us 7 years to get there and even then it wasn't on purpose (hello wine night with friends lol) You have to do what is best for your family. :)

I hear ya! People ask us all the time about #3 and were like "we can barely hand the two we have!!!"

We love our babies SO much, but seriously there are days we are just hanging on!!
