Team Jeans & A Brain Dump

Every now and then I have so many things in my head I want to share and thank goodness for my blog.  It's become a dumping ground for thoughts and ideas.  I found a few things I wanted to share I thought were pretty cool....the other stuff is just about our life :-)

So here we go!

Football season is just around the corner & I know lots of folks like to wear things with team logos on them. 

These jeans rock:

Fort Worth TCU Grads Greg Adams and Tyler Fleming recently launched OCJ Apparel, a hip, trend-right line of top-shelf jeans with custom embroidered, university-themed designs in a selection of washes and cuts.

OCJ Apparel – short for Original College Jeans
They also have a few other teams jeans too!

I have a weakness for pretty purses.  I thought this purse was so stylish and different than any other purse I've seen.  The fabric is amazing!

TCU GRAD - Be Inthavon is an accessories designer and has a patented technique of hand-looming very thin strips of leather into silk. The process takes a full day to weave about an inch of Inthavong’s leather-silk hybrid. The resulting effect is quite beautiful. Inthavong’s played with various color combinations of leather and silk for a richly hued texture. And even matte leather gets a bit of shine from the natural sheen of the silk.

And now some pics of my growing boy!

We have a train or "choo choo" that runs right behind our house.  I'm sure that is going to be great for re-sale value huh?  I hardly notice it anymore actually....but when the train passes Connor points and freaks out!  It's too funny!

I mentioned before how we were going to start hiking as a family.  We tried on this pack last weekend.  Connor loved riding in it, but I'm just not sure how long we'll be able to use it.  I know eventually he'll start wanting to hike on his own.  I'm not sure if it's worth the investment or not?  Anyone have one of these? Thoughts on it?

 And last but not least....

In & Out Burger finally opened its doors last week here in Fort Worth :-)

I drove through for lunch on opening day.  I know I am CRAZY! Ha!
It was just like what I remembered and it was delicious!
Hope everyone has a great day!

I love that you talk about In-N-Out burger right after your post about hiking and healthy living. ha ha!!

I'm a big fan of kids consignment stores and every time I go in there are hiking backpacks like the one C is in here. You could check a consignment store/Goodwill/Craigslist. That way you'd have it for as long as C fits, but you wouldn't spend nearly as much.

We had a backpack for our boy when he was small and loved it. Ours wasn't a fancy version, just a basic one from Babies R Us. My son loved riding in it because it put him up high so he could see. We used it until he got too big for it. Ours did have a little canopy sun shade on it which was wonderful.

We tried to go to the new In and Out in Fort Worth on Saturday night....big mistake. ha. We ate at the one in Frisco a while back. My husband grew up on them and loves it!

I love the jeans! What a great idea! Now they just need some West Coast teams! I can totally see a lightning bolt on a Chargers pair!
Love the pics of Connor! We live near an AFB, and every time a plane flies over, Tessa runs to the window and signs "airplane"!

We have the Deuter II, it looks like you are trying the III. We love our II, and didn't think the III was worth it. But we LOVE LOVE LOVE it and use it regularly. He's getting so big!
