Our favorite time of year has arrived. We just love fall, Halloween, the subtle change from 85 degree weather to 75 degree weather with occasional days of 65 degrees. We love pumpkins and candy and zombies.

I already posted about Delilah’s first flight last week and now I finally have enough time to write about the actual trip!
We went to Houston to visit my brother and celebrate his 26th birthday. My mom flew in from Fort Lauderdale and we met her there. Unfortunately, Liam was not able to come because it was going too expensive to pay him a plane ticket especially since the trip was very last minute and I was transitioning jobs. Delilah flies for free so bringing her was a little simpler. We have vowed to take Liam somewhere by plane very soon to make it up to him though!
While in Houston we went to the Children’s Museum of Houston. I was a little surprised that over a year old they charge an entrance fee for kids, I thought that was a little lame. But we found a living social deal online which saved us half off the admission price so it worked out in our favor. The Children’s Museum was ah-mazing! An absolute delight. I would go back to Houston just to take Delilah here again when she’s older, it was that awesome. There was a lot of cool things, it was educational but also silly and they had a great play area for the younger kids. My 26 year old brother really loved the stuff geared towards older kids (like 8-10 year old lol).
This past weekend we went on a trip from Jacksonville to Houston, TX to visit my brother for his 26th birthday. We flew there which means Delilah went on her first plane ride! Our flight there left at 6:20 am (meaning we had to be at the airport by 5 am) and went to Atlanta then to Houston. Our flight back was a direct flight that left at 8 pm.
Surprisingly, it was a really fun and easy experience. I went into this expecting to me “those people with a crying baby” but Delilah hardly even fussed. After the first flight landed she cried for half a minute because we wouldn’t let her run around and then for the second flight she fell asleep during takeoff on my boob. Thank goodness for breastfeeding! Shoutout to Southwest Airlines for being supportive of breastfeeding moms! On the flight back she was a lot crankier because she was fighting sleep but she just needed more distractions.
I may be a mom but I still love bows! They aren’t just for the kids. I have quite a few bows and was having a hard time keeping them together or out of Joseph’s hands. So I got on Pinterest to gather ideas and found a few DIY projects that were pretty easy.
I started off with an old picture frame and painted it black. You don’t need to keep the glass and backing of the frame for this project.
Next, I measured out ribbon the same length as the frame, I chose to do mine horizontal but you could easily do it vertically as well. Read more
Being a mom is one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done, and one of the best. You hear moms all over say those words and really don’t understand what they mean until you have your own child. Read more
