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!!
