Brain Dump

I'm here, I promise!

We've been going 90 to nothing lately, so I haven't had much time to breathe, much less write a full blog post with pictures. :)

So, you're getting a brain dump today:

1. It has gotten hot in Texas in the past week. We went from upper-80's and refreshing to the gates of hell. It was supposed to top out at 100* today, but they brought it back down to a cool 97*. How thoughtful of Mr. Weatherman! 

2. We hired a lady to come clean our house once a month, and it was probably the highlight of my week. (I know, I know, #epicwhitepeopleproblems.) It is just nice to know my house is going to get a full, deep clean once a month. Hello, clean baseboards; blinds; cabinets; doors and windows! 

3. Brandon came home with a Nest last night, and I must say, I am pretty obsessed. He purchased it at Best Buy {with a coupon} and came home and installed it by himself last night. I'm hoping this little guy does what it says it can do and reduces our electricity bills up to 20 percent! 

4. June is such a busy month for us. Brandon's brother's birthday, my oldest younger brother's birthday, my sister's birthday, Father's Day and my parents' anniversary. Whew! I looked up and it's June 12. I keep telling us we have to slow down and enjoy summer a bit!

5. Speaking of enjoying summer, I had my first snow cone of the summer with one of my co-workers yesterday. We drove all over trying to find a place that was open, and we finally did after about 20 minutes! I got wedding cake with cream, and holy moly, y'all. It was worth the 20 minutes of driving around. 

6. Also? I'm loving the whole "no work Fridays." Tomorrow is my first Friday off for the summer, and I am really looking forward to it! 

7. I am not calling anyone out here, but it drives me absolutely crazy when women have babies and suddenly everything is a comparison to their life with a newborn. You say, "Oh! The yard guys have started to cut my lawn at 6:30 a.m.! It's so annoying!" They say, "Yeah! Try having those people come at 6:30 a.m. and add a crying, hungry newborn to the mix!" People, I get it. You have a child. I don't need comparisons between your life and mine. 

8. I need a hair cut like nobody's business. My split ends are out of control. 

9. I saw this thing the other day that said, "Know how you can tell which people do CrossFit and which ones don't? The ones who do CrossFit tell you they do CrossFit...all the time." I was cracking up at that! It's so true! 

10. I have an unhealthy relationship with McAlister's. I could eat there every single day if my budget {and waistline} allowed me to do so. The chicken caesar wrap with a side of macaroni and cheese and a sweet tea? Don't mind if I do! 

11. I also have an unhealthy relationship with Home Goods lately. Make me stop buying ALL THE THINGS! 

12. In honor of Father's Day, I guess I will throw one picture at y'all: 

Happy Father's Day, Daddy-o!


  1. Totally agree on the crossfit thing...and weather thing. Jealous of the no work Friday thing and house cleaner thing...but loved reading all these things! :)

  2. Sweet tea from McAlister's is the best! I really wish there was one a little closer to where I live and work!

  3. I have missed you!! I love that you got a cleaning lady. I definitely think that when we buy a house we'll want to do it too. My brother and SIL have ones that come every two weeks and they have said it's the best thing. And yes definitely #epicwhitepeopleproblems haha. I'm so glad that you're back!
