it's kicking my tail, Texas days + a raid

Oh, man. Life has been kicking my tail lately. Today I'm on round #6 or #7 {I've lost count} of sickness for me since we moved 12 weeks ago. Arggghhh. Someone please make it stop. Please?

But praise the Lord, I was okay for the last couple of weeks, which meant there were good moments too:

Shopping at Lowe's meant I wandered in the light section while the man gathered house supplies. I liked these two chandeliers lots:



And the weather has been grand- we've had tons of 60-70 degree days where it was this pretty:


And the clear nights in town after house shopping usually end with a tour of Christmas lights somewhere:


This was an especially fun night- we went to get a REAL live Christmas tree!! :D


Big highlights of our last two weeks always include Tex-Mex fajitas {of course!}:


And some serious artichoke dip:


We had the chance to score a couple of dates- one courtesy of my dad, and another courtesy of Parents Night Out at the gym. :D Sooo thankful to have a breather in these crammed days. I even wore high heels!

And speaking of heels- my girls love them so much that this is a typical play day for them after school:


They're only 5 and 7 and they're already raiding my closet. :) And Isabella is already wearing {and taking over} my athletic socks. What will it be like when they're teenagers?? I'm hoping they have clothes I can borrow! hahaha!

Our house is coming along- I hope to do an update when I can actually go there and take a picture. Strangely enough, life's been so full I haven't even seen it myself in several days.

One bonus of crazy long days is that every day feels 10x slower than a regular day, which means this Christmas season is lasting for what feels like months! :P 

I'd love to catch up- what has your life been like lately?

Do your girls raid your closet too? How can we use this to our advantage? :P

Help- which chandelier do you like for an island light? Pic one or two? I like them both!
