One Year Ago Today......

Today Driscoe is 15 months old.  I was thinking about it yesterday and realized that exactly a year ago today I returned to work from my maternity leave.  I remember feeling so anxious to get back into the swing of things at work, and yet so sick to my stomach about leaving my angel behind with our new nanny whom I hardly knew.

Does a mother ever feel 100% sure that she is making the right decision when it comes to staying home or going back to work?  I doubt it, but it's normal for moms to worry like this. It's normal to question your every motherly move, wondering if the decisions you are making are going to royally screw up your child, right?  Should I breast feed?  Should I use a pacifier?  Does he need to start sleeping in his own room?  Should he be sleeping through the night?  Will this bottle at 3am officially make him a night feeder?  How do I stop giving him bottles?  Are his teeth going to rot out if I don't?  Why isn't he walking yet?  Should I be teaching him abc's?  Can he eat that?  Can he take that?  Should I call the doctor?  Lawd!  It's never ending, and BabyCenter.com and all the other, your-15-month-old-should-be-doing-this-right-now-or-else websites, don't help!

So I'm sure like every other mom out there, I too worried that I would be destroying Driscoe by going back to work, but I don't worry about that anymore.  I know he is getting plenty of lovin' and attention at home.  One year ago today we had the sweetest, most loving lady enter our lives.  I don't know what we would do without Maria.  She has taught Driscoe things I never knew a tot had the capacity to learn.  When he see's her he lights up and she does the same.  She cares for him so much, I've even heard her voice some of the same silly worries that I have, which I find comforting.  I know she was put in my life by God to reassure me that I am right where I need to be.  Happy one year anniversary, Maria!  We love you!

 One year ago today, was a good day.

She loves taking care of my nephews too.

Sisters, Love and Growing Up

April 2009 Grace, Bonnie and I moved into the sweetest lil house on Brun street.  She had recently moved back from a year stay in Paris and I was moving out of the quirkiest apartment in Houston.  I remember that move like it was yesterday, it turned into a huge party with tons of family and friends getting drunk on the patio of our new pad....and not lifting a finger helping with the move.

We had so many great times in that 992 sq ft, 2 bed/1 bath house.  Every night was girls night.  The only boys allowed were related to us.  Bonnie was the perfect 3rd wheel and lived on the patio.   

Since the Brun street house we lived in 2 other places together.  I loved living with Grace, she is clean and laid back, a minimalist and always let me use half of her closet.  She wakes up happy and ready to tackle the day and that energy is totally contagious.  When I met Jason, fell in love and “moved-in” with him, I kept all of my things in my house with Grace. 

Today I was dropping off keys at the house I own that Grace and my belongings have been living in.  Jason and I are renting it out, and where I am excited for this new adventure and the extra $, it has been very bittersweet.  As I was walking through the empty house one last time, I looked in a cupboard and found this Polaroid of the day we moved into Brun.  The beginning of such a fun time in my life, living with the silliest, sweetest roommate.  And although this lil chapter is ending, it makes me giggle to think of my new “roommates”.  They are SUPER high maintenance, every night is boys night, and I am the luckiest girl in the world to get to share a home with them.  


I love you bohoG!!!!  Best lil roomie ever!

Burlesque. Babes. Prohibition.

It’s been far too long since I’ve paid homage to the beautiful bombshells of The Moonlight Dolls. We’ve been grinding it out (literally and figuratively) over the last couple of months and together our efforts have produced a fresh lineup for our Friday night show ‘Provocateur’. Provocateur can be described as a modern-day twist on the classic art form of burlesque. We call this ‘neo-burlesque’. It’s artistic, fetish-y, dark, and incredibly sexy.  Here are some ground rules:


·        Dress nicely. This isn’t a fucking grogshop.
·        Drink. If you don’t drink, act like you do. We love drunks and excited teetotalers.
·        Hoot and holler.
·        Stop by Erotic Cabaret after the show because you will be in one helluva mood for…

·        Bring your Grandma… unless she’s into that sort of thing.
·        Be a snob.
·        Get TOO drunk. You know that fine line between drunk and wasted? Flirt with it.
·        Touch, dry-hump, poke, or feed the girls.

Tickets can be purchased HERE. Enjoy the show!

Peace, love and legs,

Healthy Panini On the Fly

My AWESOME trainer, Anna, shared this quick and easy, go-to recipe with me for an amazing panini, and I wanted to share with you!

2 slices of Udi's gluten free sandwich slices
1-2 tbs organic whole grain mustard 
1 slice of organic baby swiss cheese
2 slices of organic uncured ham
3 fresh basil leaves
*you can add dijon mustard as well or a spicy mustard.

Heat panini press.  Spread mustard on bread, Fold ham, layer cheese on top of ham, and add basil leaves.  Grill until brown on both sides.  This sandwich tastes so naughty and fills you up!  I eat baked cucumber dill lentil chips with it.  


Love, bohoJC
