#CatchtheMoment {Week One}

2016 is a time to get back into photography. I have done the Catch the Moment in the past and haven’t completed it successfully. This year, I have decided to change up the challenge a bit for myself – mobile photos are allowed! Life happens, and some days I don’t grab my dSLR to capture the most perfect moment. So instead of setting myself up for failure on that one, I’ll be capturing the moment no matter where we are and with whatever camera I have handy. So let’s start off the year by catching up – Week one is below.

{Day 001 – January 01, 2016}

Kyle’s birthday is New Years Day, and as always, Lennox made him a cake. This year though, it was an easy bake oven cake! Kyle may have had to pretend it tasted good – but I’m pretty sure he really loved it, even funky taste and all!


{Day 002 – January 02, 2016}

Christmas may be over, and it may have been super hectic this year – but I had to capture the bright ornaments against a bright white tree.


{Day 003 – January 03, 2016}

Lennox has had a hard start to Kindergarten, unfortunately, but we are trying to keep up with all the work. She had lots of make up work to do over break, and we were trying to finish it up before school started again!


{Day 004 – January 04, 2016}

For Christmas I got a macro lens for my iPhone – this is one of the first photos I took with it. Pretty good for an iPhone pictures I think!


{Day 005 – January 05, 2016}

Today was back to reality. Christmas break was over and it was time to head back to work. I really do love where I work. It’s always a great thing when you can go to work each day, and know that at some point during the day you will be laughing so hard you cry! My work family is THE BEST.


{Day 006 – January 06, 2016}

The very last glow of Christmas 2015.


{Day 007 – January 07, 2016}

Today was a day full of Jury Duty. It was my first time called in Texas. I didn’t have to sit on a jury for a trial, but I did have to go through the questioning and selection process. The Tarrant County Historical Court House is beautiful.


Another Year of Elf on the Shelf

Our Elf on the Shelf, HoHo, has returned for another year of shenanigans. I will have to say, I have not done as good of a job having him hop around the house this year – with being so busy this holiday season – but I’m now on vacation through the rest of the year and plan on doing some fun stuff with HoHo as we head into Christmas day!

Here are some of the shenanigans that HoHo has gotten into so far this year!

Then one day he got himself stuck in the K-Cup holder! Lennox was a little concerned!

HoHo found a girlfriend and was cruisin’ around in her pink convertible!

One day, HoHo brought Lennox some change for her piggy bank in her room. She was so excited that he was in her bedroom!

And today HoHo is taking a bubble bath in marshmallows! Lennox keeps eating his bath!!

Sneak Peek: New Mommy / Daughter Photos

Lennox and I have started a new tradition of getting Mommy / Daughter photos taken each fall. My friend, Diana from has started taking our photos and I love how these came out! I still have to go through all the images but I wanted to give you a little sneak peek!

Last year, our photos were football/Texas Longhorn themed and caught some attention around the web which was pretty exciting!

This year – we went for more traditional photos but found a new location that I just love in our hometown.

Here is a sneak-peek! More coming soon!



I love that I finally get in front of the camera with Lennox instead of the one taking her picture. I just don’t know when Lennox got so big!!
