Life Lately

Hey hey!  Welcome back to our little corner of the web.  We are so grateful that some of you return time and time again.  If you’re new here, welcome!  Go back and read older posts to see what we are all about.

Twice a month, we like to tell you what’s been going on in our worlds.  Now, let’s take a look at life lately.

Rhonda-

The last couple of weeks have been such a blur, but have been pretty good to me!  Really, I have been spending a lot of my time building my businesses and organizing the house….with a little shadow all up under me.

For once, we got an opportunity for a date night.  It’s getting easier now that Claudia has a couple friends on our street that she spends a lot of time with and the boys are old enough to fly solo for a couple of hours.  We went to Capital Grille in downtown Fort Worth.  I highly recommend eating there if you have one near you!.

Because Claudia has been super clingy lately, most of my activities involve her.  I have been making the most of it and enjoying my time with her.  We have spent time in the sun and have done our makeup together.  I wanted a girl for so long and boy, did I get it.  She is the girly girl I always wanted.

She has done all my work with me, helping me make videos on social media, packing orders, and “organizing” (that means she plays with her toys all up under me while I organize…and that I later am tripping on Barbies).

This past weekend, I took a super rare girls night out to the Stockyards with my friend Natalia.  We have never spent any time one-on-one and it was so much fun.  We went to a Terri Clark show, but I was really just there for the drinks.  Turns out Terri is pretty good, so that was a nice bonus.

Let’s see what Ashley has been up to!

Ashley-

Heeey you guys.  🙂 What’s been going on in my world? Well, we have for sure been enjoying the sun, sand, and water from wherever we can get it. We haven’t had a chance to go to the beach in a couple weeks, but we’ve been taking advantage of the park and my parents back yard!

Per usual, there has been lots and lots of shopping happening. We have been getting ready for our new house PLUS back to school shopping AND regular day to day shopping. Let’s just say Sophie and I have been in heaven. 😉

Speaking of back to school stuff, I took both kids to go get their hair cut. Cooper has been getting regular hair cuts since shortly after his first birthday, but this was little Soso’s FIRST hair cut ever. At the ripe ole age of 2 and three quarters I decided it was time to trim those scraggly ends. 😉 She was over joyed at finally getting a chance to sit in the chair. And she did really well with keeping still and not fussing. I mean, no one can compete with the perfection that is Cooper Grice in a hair cut chair BUT Sophie did really well. LOL Seriously though, Coop has always behaved so well during haircuts. Anyway, I almost teared up watching Soso get her hair cut – but we all escaped tear free and with two little babes who now have much more manageable hair!

This weekend we packed up and loaded up our house to move everything to our new forever home! It was sooo much work, but sooo worth it!

To say that we are exhausted from all the moving is a YUGE understatement, but we’re thoroughly enjoying our new bigger and better surroundings. Even if I had to yell no less than a million times,  ” STOP RUNNING ON THE STAIRS. GO SLOOOW.”

 

What about you guys? How has your summer been going?

Week In Review: Rhonda

What a whirlwind this week was!  I am still so exhausted from it all and even woke up this morning with a stomach bug.

So, Monday, I got some work done and then went out for drinks with my mom group.

Tuesday, I got ready to go out of town – cleaning, laundry, packing, and a couple of errands.

I headed to Mississippi on Wednesday morning.  Now, it is not a short trip by any stretch of the imagination, but it was absolutely nice to have that time alone to think and process life.  I made it to Ashley’s house in time to hang out and then do Wine Wednesday Live after the kids went to bed.

Thursday was finally Hair Day.  I am so excited to have blonde and fun colors back.  I feel so much more like myself when my hair is on point.

My stylist and I had so much fun.  I was her only client for the day, so we took our time, sipped some wine, visited an old school liquor store, and chatted about life.  It was much-needed girl time.

Ashley, Grace, and I went out to the IP, as we always tend to do.  We saw a fun band called Got Groove and I made pals with the lead singer.  Ashley went home to get some sleep before work, but Grace and I were just getting started!  We went over to Coast Nightclub at the Beau Rivage to do some more booty shaking.  After that, we hit up Waffle House.  Such a great time!

Friday, I had lunch with Jonathan while I waited for Ashley to get off.  When she got out of work, we hit the road back to Texas.  Read her week in review for how that road trip went.

On Saturday, we had some of Stuart’s signature brunch food and chilled out and sipped wine with music on.  That night, we went live for a GRWM and headed out to the Stockyards.  A great night with music and drinks!  Ashley left Sunday and I sunbathed in the backyard, recovering from a crazy week!

Did y’all do anything fun this past week?
