Life Lately!

 
You know when your mom calls you and asks when you're going to write another blog post that it's been a while and you better get a new one up soon😜. So here's what we've been up to lately.
 
In January, I traveled two weekends in a row for work trips. I went to Orlando, Fl first for the Matrix Destination hair show. I have never been to Florida before so it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot. I didn't take my camera so these are the only pics I took with my phone so ignore the poor quality.
 This was the view from my room. I got a room all to myself so I thoroughly enjoyed it. The first night I ordered room service in and watched movies, it was glorious! The second night I went out to dinner with some co-workers. We also got to do a little bit of shopping while there. Unfortunately, I got the stuff I shopped for stolen from my bag at the airport so that was a major bummer, but it was a great trip and I'd love to go back to Florida and stay longer.
I got to listen to Tabitha Coffey from Salon Take Over speak so that was really cool!
Here are a few of the Matrix hair models. This particular session had a Star Wars theme if you can't tell.
 
This past weekend we had sales meetings for work at The Gaylord Texan. I had also never been there before and man, it was awesome. It was so huge and very pretty. The food was delicious and I had so much fun. I had the best steak I've ever eaten at Old Hickory Steakhouse. We also went out to the Glass Cactus after dinner and that was a lot of fun!
 
Sales meetings are my favorite. We get to learn about all the new products coming out and we get tons of samples of all the new products. In the left hand corner of the above picture, you can see all the good stuff I came home with. It's fun to work for a beauty supply company :)
 
This weekend Aaron and I stayed in town and relaxed. It has been so nice. We enjoyed the beautiful weather with lots of walks with Samsy around the lake.
 
 Last night we had a date night and went to dinner and a movie. We saw Nicholas Spark's new movie, The Choice. We both agreed that it was really good. I'm a sucker for all his movies and books and I've seen everyone of them. Aaron is always a trooper and comes along, but this one he really enjoyed.
Today we've just been outside enjoying the weather. We played outside with Samson, threw the football around and then Aaron rode his bike beside me while I did my 4 mile long run for the week. After that we made some pigs-in-a-blanket and chips and queso for the Super Bowl. Now I'm sitting here blogging while we are watching the game. I'm only watching for the commercials and the half-time show :)
 
Other than that, I've been busy painting and crafting (which always makes me happy).
 
Not only have I been painting onesies and wood, I've also been on a big nail polish kick. I always have to have my nails painted and I typically change them once a week. These are my new favorites that I've bought recently (I'm loving the neutrals right now).
 OPI- Let Me Bayou A Drink (pale shimmery pink) & OPI- Ce-less-tial Is More (the glittery one)
 H&M- Cashmere
OPI- Chiffon My Mind
 
I also painted a new birthday door hanger this week. I'm down to my last wood piece that I bought from Canton. I'm going to need another Canton trip soon to pick up some more wooden cutouts.
 
Lastly, I've been busy making baby clothes. There are so many sweet babies being born all around me and I love making things for them.
 This is my new favorite fabric for little girls.
 I made a few items for my mom's friend who was hosting a baby shower for baby girl Tyler.
 Little Miss Ella Kay is expected to arrive in the next few weeks and we can't wait to meet her.
Little Miss Abigayle was born way early and luckily I got the fabric in the mail the day she was born so we weren't too far behind.
Could he be any cuter? My best friend text me this picture of her little boy rocking one of my onesies. It made my day. Isn't he the sweetest little model baby? I think so!
 
So there you have it. The story of my life lately. Hope you guys all have a Happy Valentine's Day! We don't really go all out for the holiday, but we are praying for good weather because our plan is to have a nice picnic and kayak all day. Sounds like the perfect day to me :)
