What We Have Been Up To {Wednesday}

aka the longest blog post line in the world!!
First off thank you everyone for welcoming me back!
It definitely feels good to be blogging again!
Since I decided to take an extended leave from this place, we have been up to A LOT!
If you follow me on instagram (@allaboute) you have seen a little bit of it!
First off after NYC we closed on our house on 6/15!
It literally was one of our happiest days!
We went to Orange Beach!
We celebrated my sweet friend Hiedi get married!
And we celebrated my childhood bff Chelle get engaged!
We had our two house warming parties and were so excited to have everyone over!
(this is my step-dad, our favorite BBQ chef)
And now we are counting down the days until we leave for Chicago and celebrate 2 years of marriage! (9 to be exact!)
Anyone been to Chicago or live in Chicago?? What is your must do's??
Who is excited about handing out candy for the first time tomorrow??? This girl is!
I really want our house to be super scary where kids cry when their parents make them come knock on our door but I ended up liking/buying all of the cutesy Halloween decor instead of the scary!
Looks like I will have to save all the scary stuff to use on our own kids one day!

{Hello} Again

Since I have not made a visit to this place in a good 5 months, I decided it would be best
to re-introduce myself to the blogging society...
That's me. In the black. With the bottle straight up.
Not to be confused with the lady in the back with her hand up looking like she is getting after it.
But for a better picture that will make my momma proud....
(not sure if the lady is looking at my shoes or booty)
That's more like it!
 I am a lover of all things, all while having champagne taste on a Natty Light budget....
I am a small town Texas born girl who is lucky enough to call this my husband

Z is my sexy dime piece and a saint for putting up with me on a daily basis. We have almost been married for 2 years and together for 5 years. We absolutely love being married, however we have our daily struggles of me being ridiculous and him having to put me in my place and me not liking it.
I am a mother of two fur babies, the cutest you ever met in your life.
One minute we love each other the next we don't. Ace is my bulldog that I got my Junior year in college. I am honestly surprised him and I both made it out alive our first two years together. He was super wild and uncontrollable. Louie is Z's dog. (insert laughs here, we get it all the time) He bites me constantly and only wants to have something to do with me when Ace wont play with him. However, he LOOOVES Z and I let Z know on a daily basis that if he thinks no one else in the house loves him, remember Louie does.
I am a lover of family, friends and food (seriously, I gained 20+ pounds my freshman year in college off of double bacon cheese burgers from Jack in the Box). I am beyond amazed daily on how much Z and I our blessed, but I recently learned to be VERRRY specific what you pray for. I now know not to ask to not be materialistic or worried about future plans.
We recently just moved into our first house and I am loving every bit of decorating and entertaining!
I hope you will all stay around a little longer to read more about our day-to-day lives, as we try to figure out this whole marriage thing, get ready for the possible parent thing (not in the near future), travel, cook and just enjoy this time of our lives!
P.S. I am sooo horrible at this whole "about me" "introduction" thing...the whole time I was writing this I kept hearing Meredith Brook singing "I'm a bitch, I'm lover, I'm a child....". That's probably not a good sign.
