Five on Friday

I'm linking up for another edition of Five on Friday, a weekly post about 5 random things on my mind! 


Do you ever run into bloggers that you follow in person?  There is one particular blogger that I love (she has a much larger following than me) and lives in my area.  I spotted her and her family at Target one day a few months ago.  I didn't say anything because I felt like a stalker, which is silly since we both just happened to be at Target.  Just this week I spotted her husband at the grocery store.  I certainly didn't say anything to him either, but I'm pretty sure he thought I was weird since I kept looking at him.  In my defense I just wanted to see if that was really him.  

I don't know why I suddenly get shy.  A blog reader of mine once came up to me at an area event and introduced herself.  It made my year!  That's what you sign up for when you put yourself (and your pictures) in the blogosphere. 

Has this happened to you before?


We celebrated Tucker's birthday on Monday!  For those of you new to the blog, Tucker is my now 10 year old chihuahua who I adore.  He's been with me since he was just six weeks old.  Naturally, we celebrated with treats and singing. 

Puppy cookies
Look how excited Tuck is for his presents


The Houston Moms Blog website launch and Launch Party is THIS TUESDAY!  The launch party is from 5:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. at Pomp & Circumstance in River Oaks.  It's free and there will be lots of yummy goodies and cocktails.  Wanna Go?  Sign-up HERE and then tell me you're coming so I can look for you!


Can't believe my little guy is 17 weeks today!  The good stuff this week is that Jack now loves his Bumbo seat, sitting up, shoving things into his mouth, playing with his Oballs, squealing in delight and looking at his surroundings.  The bad this week is that he hates being cradled like a baby (preferring to be propped up looking around), long afternoon naps, and sleeping through the night. 


I'm thinking about cutting my hair even shorter.  I've had every hair length under the sun so it's not a matter of will I like it on me...I LOVE short hair.  I'm just wondering if I am just being impulsive or am truly ready for a change.  Any advice or suggestions?

Current long bob - Long & curly - Awful Shag - Long and highlighted
Mid-Length Bob - Long with side bangs - Chin length bob - Another current

Short Bob - Posh Bob (and attitude) - Short Layers - Long Layers



  1. That's so funny about running into the other blogger! I probably would've acted the same way.

    And I think your hair would look super cute short!

  2. I'll be at the launch! Looking forward to meeting you in person!

    We celebrate our chihuahuas birthdays, too ;)

    I vote for posh bob! I wish I could get away with that look!

    Have a fabulous weekend!!

    1. Yay! Can't wait to meet you on Tuesday! It will be lots of fun. Hope you are having a great weekend!

  3. Before I blogged, I ran into a blogger but didn't say anything. Now I might if it was one who I thought "should" recognize me if we've exchanged emails! Tuesday sounds so fun... Can non-moms crash? ;)

    1. Hey Lauren! Non-moms are more than's more of just a fun ladies night! Plus, you are a mom to some fur-babies. Hope to see you there!

    2. Soooo I am just realizing that you reply in-line. I feel like we have been missing out on valuable convos all this time!

  4. I actually met a blogger I follow and it was so awkward! I was buying stuff from her off her blog sale and we met up so she could give me the stuff and I was so nervous!! There were so many things I wanted to say because I truly love her blog but I chickened out. Plus I didn't want to seem creepy! So I totally understand you not wanting to say anything!

    1. It IS awkward since you know the person so well from reading their personal blog yet never actually met them or even interacted with them. Next time I'm going to make myself say something though!

  5. Found your blog through The Girl In The Red Shoes and looking forward to following along! I don't know what I would do if I saw a blogger I follow out in public...probably the same thing you did! :)

    We just started a meet-up in Nebraska for Omaha bloggers and the first one is in a couple weeks - so excited! I think it's going to be great to meet other bloggers in my area - I'm sure you guys will have a great time as well!

    Have to say you seem to rock every hair style based on those pics - a little jealous about that!

    Have a great weekend! Katie

    1. I'm so happy you found me and I can't wait to go follow your blog too. You will have to post about your blogger meet-up. I'm sure it will be awesome. Thank you so much regarding the hair! I think I'm going to continue growing it for now...the husband just informed me that he doesn't really love my hair short. We'll see how long I can stand it! Talk soon, Chelsea
