hometown homies {back to life}



Hello y'all! I came back home yesterday toting some of my Texas accent and a lot of fun memories! I promise to get back to "want it for less Wednesday" next week but I just had to pop in today and say hello because I missed the ole' blog world  & all of you.

So now that I'm back, it's time for me to take the polish off my nails and get back to doing what I do... Starting with my normal routine of making oatmeal and taking a morning walk with the boy, with a side of house cleaning and laundry and email answering. Exciting, right? I must admit, it excites me! For those of you who follow me on Instagram you know that I got to spend some time in the city, throw back a few cocktails, get dressed up for fun nights out, and even get some major sparkle shopping on. It was so nice to escape for a few days and not be a mom or a wife or a blogger...but just Courtney perusing the streets of Houston, window shopping and taking the time to sip some tea and brunch with the ladies.

During my trip I learned a few things I love about staying in a hotel alone...
*You can leave dirty towels on the floor without any guilt...
*You can sleep late by simply hanging a sign on the door...I want one of those bad boys for home.  
*You can fall asleep with the TV on and not be bothering anyone else
*You can pretend you're mysterious when in an elevator with random people instead of just being shy.
*You can totally eat a gummy bear or piece of chocolate for breakfast because you don't have access to a  
    pantry. Girls gotta eat'

It was fantastic & just the recharge I needed. And even though I absolutely hated saying goodbye to my best friends and family, I was anxious to get back to the rolling hills, hiking trails & climbing roses...the bakery on the corner, the beautiful sunsets and the slow pace of Point Reyes. Not to mention I was missing my little man more than words can say. But all of that was remedied in one quick moment when he ran up to me at the airport with a flower in his hand..."mama flower"...and gave me a huge hug.


It's always fun to go away...but even better to come back home.
See you back for our regularly scheduled program tomorrow!
