Movin’ and Groovin’

I don’t know about y’all, but I am NOT a fan of moving.

This past week or so has been a tad bit crrraaazzzyyyy!  

Kyle and I officially started moving out of our home this past Saturday.

I was a little worried about the new house because it’s a bit smaller,

but so far I am in LOVE!!!!

It already feels so much cozier and more “homey” than the other one ever did.

To any of my readers with pups i’m sure you can relate to this….

Charley was SO nervous when we started packing the house up.

Poor babe thought we were going to leave her there by herself.

She would follow us around everywhere to make sure we didn’t forget her,

oh and then there’s this….

She’s much happier now that we are [somewhat] settled in the new house.

We are SO dang blessed to have family close by that were willing to help us move,

It definitely made the process less stressful and overwhelming and we couldn’t be more thankful!

Kyle and I are actually heading to the old house tonight to hopefully finish up

and grab EVERYthing else.

It’s amazing how much crap you have in your house, that you don’t even use or need.

We’ve slowlyyyyy started decorating the new house and i’m really loving it.

Here are a few pictures so far!

I think our dining area is my favorite little space so far.

I am obsessedddd with this table that Kyle built for us!

And I scored these beautiful chairs on sale on

I can’t wait to show y’all the rest of our place!! 

The weather has been amazing the past few days so I have a feeling we might

not get much done this weekend, oh well,

gotta enjoy the beautiful weather while it’s here!!

Last night I went to a much needed happy hour with a couple girlfriends,

will share the outfit (love love love) I wore on tomorrows post!

Happy Thursday!

Packin’ Up and Headin’ Out.

The past few weeks have been a tad stressful.

Kyle was recently transferred to a completely different position at his job,

on the complete opposite side of town.

Kyle and I have been wanting to move more north for a while now. 

We don’t really love the neighborhood we are currently in, 

and we have a back neighbor that sits outside talking on the phone all day everyday,

so we can barely ever let Charley out because she barks at him like CRAZY.

We’ve been looking to buy somewhere near the Cypress area for a few months,

but haven’t had any luck AT ALL.

Our lease in the house we are currently in ends THIS month. 

We have always paid on time, and have heard our landlord loves us.

Therefore we figured we could extend our lease about 3 more months and it wouldn’t be a problem.


Our landlord decided to raise the rent significantly,

and there was no way we were willing to pay that amount.

Therefore, we started searching like crazy for a new place to rent.

A place closer to his work, in a better area, and preferably with no back neighbors!

God sure is good, we managed to find a place within a week!

When we found it we were informed that it had already had multiple offers.

So, of course we were super bummed and not very optimistic. 

Well guess what?! We were told yesterday that IT’S OURS!

Our official move in date is the 25th,

so we’ve got a heck of a lot of work to do!

Moving is never fun, and always stressful so please just keep us in your prayers!

Especially because Kyles new job is MUCH less flexible so I’ll probably

be doing a lot of the packing and moving myself. 

Although we’ve been wanting to get out of this house for a while it’s still bittersweet.

This was mine and Kyles very first home together, and the only home Charley knows.

So even though I’m super excited to be leaving, 

we are leaving behind some really awesome memories. 

If anyone has any amazing moving tips send them my way!! 

Happy Hump Day Pretty Girls.

xoxo, Monica

My Birthday Babe

Yesterday was Kyle’s birthday!!

Can’t believe he’s 26, and that I’ll catch up to him in just a couple months.

I also can’t believe we met & fell in love when we were only 18  [basically babies] 

and our love for each other is stronger than ever now!

It’s always kind of a bummer when your birthday falls on a week day,

but Kyle has never really loved his birthday anyways.

He’s not the type to want a big party or do anything special.

Soooo we usually keep it pretty simple, which actually makes it really great for me!

[even though I love to spoil & surprise him]

I kept the gifts pretty simple since we booked an all inclusive vacation YESTERDAY!

whoop whoop!!! We are beyond pumped about it!!! 

But anyways, I made him his all time favorite dessert, Oreo Balls!

and I was so busy yesterday that I completely forgot

 to take a picture of them & his presents I laid out!

But they are beyond delicious and you can find the recipe HERE.

We enjoyed a night to ourselves and grabbed some chinese food,

then spent most of the evening searching for houses!

We’ve got to find one QUICK, so please be praying for us, cuz I know Kyle is stressed about it!

We have been looking for a cheaper house to buy and kind of fix up

and then hopefully sell it or rent it out in about 2 years when we’re ready to buy a house we really love!

But anywhooooo, tonight we’re going to dinner with Liz & John to do a little more celebrating!

Thanks for being the amazing man that you are and always keeping me laughing!!

Love you sweet cheeks.

Thank God for weekends.

After a SUPER long week, this weekend was majorly needed.

After babysitting Friday, Kyle and I headed out to get margaritas and some tex-mex!

Kyle and I have been stressing lately because a lot of people at his job are getting laid off.

God is definitely watching over us because he was offered a new position rather than being let go.

He starts in a few weeks and it’s in a different location which means we MAY be moving soon.

So there’s been lot’s of things going on over here, 

which is why I haven’t had much time for blogging!

This weekend was great though.

On Saturday we met up with Bryan & Skye to have lunch and take our pups to the park!

They had a BLAST but were a filthy mess. 

Saturday night we met back up with them for some drinks [& queso]

I LOVE how close we all are. 

It’s also a HUGE plus that I’m in love with my brother in laws girlfriend,

knowing that you could potentially have a best friend as family is always exciting.

After a few drinks we headed downtown to meet up with some more family/friends!

Unfortunately no photos were taken, only snapchats.

Which is pretty typical for a night like that lol.

But anyways…Kyle has been building us a new kitchen table and I am SO excited about it.

I am dying to show y’all the finished product, he’s done such an awesome job.

Hopefully it will be finished by tomorrow!! 

Have a great Tuesday ladies!

xoxo, Monica
