Mother-Daughter Trip!

My adorable, fun, sweet and beautiful mom recently celebrated a birthday in October - so what better way to celebrate than a mother-daughter trip to Scottsdale for some warm weather, sun and relaxation. In case you didn't know, I have 3 sisters - so there were a total of 4 daughters in the family -lots of fun growing up! There is nothing like the relationship you have with your sisters and the relationship we all have with our mom- she really is more of a friend to us at this point! Only 3 daughters could make the trip this year, but hopefully next time we will all be in attendance.

We all had a great time and spent most of the days laying by the pool, catching up with each other, eating yummy food and enjoying the 88 degree weather. In the evenings, we had long dinners, laughed a lot and enjoyed the dozens of firepits surrounding the resort. We all had so much fun, we've already started planning the next trip.

4 years of wedded bliss...

Back in September, Hubs and I celebrated 4 wonderful years of wedded bliss! Man - those 4 years went by really fast!!! We've had a lot of fun, learned a lot about each other AND life, laughed a lot, cried some, dreamed big, stumbled a little, and made plans for the next 50 years! To be honest, the last 2 years have been more difficult than the first 2 years - as many of you know... there have been lots of changes that happened in the last 2 years. Moving across the country, changing houses, changing jobs, changing friends, etc etc etc. But one of the most important things we have learned is to stay grounded in our faith, trusting our Savior and His plan for our life. Hubs and I keep reminding each other to "play on the same team" and constantly be an encouragement to each other. I love this man more and more every day and am so proud of him!!! I love to watch him plan for our future and talk about our future kiddos running around - makes me tear up just thinking about it! I can't wait for all that God has in store for us :)

So to celebrate those 4 years of wedded bliss, we made another trip down to our favorite resort in Cabo - for some fun in the sun!


The Bears have had a pretty incredible season so far...(yes, I am saying that as I watch the OSU Cowboys kick our tail-but you can't win them all and to be honest, not many people thought we would win this game)...

Anyways- the Bears have been pretty impressive and done a lot of things that haven't been done in Bear Country in quite some time! BCS Top 25, Beating UT in Austin, #1 team in the Big 12 South, RG3 in the running for the Heisman and not to mention a Bowl Game!!!

Hubs and I have season tickets again this year and have been enjoying the weekends in Waco - lots of tailgating, Homecoming and wins! 2 more home games left in the season - Texas A&M and OU - should be a great end to the season! Enjoy the pics!

Getting Caught Up....

Ok - so I have been TERRIBLE at blogging lately. But have no fear- if you are still around and reading this blog, I'm going to update you on a little that has been going on around the Holman House :) Currently, the hubs is in Wisconsin - preparing to go to the Dallas Cowboys vs Green Bay Packers game on Sunday night. The temp for Sunday night is supposed to be around 39 degrees...brrrrr - good thing he took his hot chilies! I am snuggled up on the couch with my favorite black lab laying at my feet and enjoying some good ole college football.

So enjoy the updates - and lots of pics!!

Melt My Heart! I know he isn't mine, but I just HAD to post these B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L pictures of my precious nephew, Griffin! And I do have to say that my sister is absolutely gorgeous as well. Love you both! Amber at Studio Three Sixteen is amazing!

Don't you just want to eat him up!! I cannot believe he is almost 12 weeks old!

Destin 2010

A couple of weeks ago we took a little trip to Florida to experience the Holman-Burson-Oprea-Carson family reunion. Every 2 years, Blake's family from Texas and from South Carolina all make their way to the beautiful beaches of Destin, FL to have some fun in the sun. This year we had a total of 20 people in the house- 6 of those were kiddos under the age of 5!!! WOW - It was loads and loads of LOUD FUN - a little crazy at times, but we wouldn't trade it for the world. Can't wait to do it all over again in 2012! Enjoy the pics :)

Spring has definitely hit at the Holman house! We have loved the past few weeks of beautiful sunshine and warmer temps! We have been busy busy the past couple of months and LOTS more fun events to come in May, June and July- so be on the lookout for more posts on the 2nd Annual Holman Family Beach Trip, Memorial Day at the Parker lake house, Stephen/Erin's GA Mountains wedding, Noelle/JT's NC Mountain wedding, my 10 year high school reunion, July 4th at the lake house, etc, etc, etc! It will be a fun and busy summer - can't wait!
For now, check out what we've been up to the last couple of months...

Blake and I went to the Rangers' Home Opener in early April - great game, great day!

In late April, we were invited to the Dallas Museum of Art - Art Ball 2010! SO.MUCH.FUN!!! We had a great night getting dressed up and going out with Luke and Lisa Henderson and Dan and Caroline (soon-to-be) Hatton!

My sister hosted another fabulous Mother's Day luncheon at her house! So much fun to spoil the mammas in our family! (Note: Blake was at a bachelor party in Atlanta that weekend, so he is not in the family pic)

Mom and her girls...Melissa, me, Mom, Jen, Amy

And we just got back from a BEAUTIFUL wedding at Wildcatter Ranch by Possum Kingdom Lake. Blake's cousin, Carol, got married outside on a beautiful ranch - we all had a fabulous time!

Cooper wanted to be in a pic with Aunt Heather and Uncle Blake - too cute
