Stangos Coffee Shop

Picture 23 I spent the last week in San Angelo visiting my family. One of the things I love to do is go antiquing downtown. My mom and I happened upon a cute retro coffee shop. Stangos had all sorts of cool vintage pinball games and decor. There was also a Zoltar fortune teller, which I thought was the coolest thing ever! Picture 24 IMG_5725  IMG_5735 IMG_5730 IMG_5723 IMG_5728And don't forget some awesome coffee! I can't wait to go back and bring my husband.

My Mom Life: Getting Dressed


Before heading to my moms house for the week I had the daunting task of packing. I'm the worst at packing and always bring too much, so I hit up Pinterest for some help. I ended up trying to pack things I could mix and match and were baby toting friendly.

Packing got me thinking about getting dressed daily, and how accomplished I feel as a new mom to put something on other than yoga pants.

Getting into a routine of getting dressed may one day lead to putting on make up and doing my hair. ;)

Sadly I did pack a lot of things I didn't wear, and I only bought the above sweater (which I wore pretty much all week) but I figure you have to start somewhere.

Here's to more yoga pant free days! Enjoy a couple of terrible iPhone pics of some outfits worn while I was in San Angelo



Sweater: Pacsun
Tights and tee: hello apparel
Blazer: vintage
Maxi skirt: Pacsun
Acid wash jeans: Pacsun
Saddle shoes: vans
Peep toe flats: Pacsun
Beanie: roxy

Coffee Date


Something inspiring: My daughter Amelia. She grows so much right before my eyes everyday, and it's amazing. You can see her little personality shining out her big eyes.

Something new: My sister took me out for a much needed pedicure. We met up with our cousin Candice and left all the kids at home. I am now obsessed with buying the color of polish on my tootsies.

Something disgusting: Baby poop. This week Amelia had some crazy poo and ruined a pair of cute pants. My husband is lucky he missed out on that personal disaster.

Something I'm listening to: The Amelie soundtrack. Amelia's projector that plays the ocean quit working, but she loves sleeping to Yann Yiersen.

This post is inspired by Treasures and Travels, check out their cute blog!

This is a picture from this morning. We are visiting my family in San Angelo. My husband is still in Lubbock, but will head down here on Saturday to pick us up. We sure do miss PapaCakes!

My computer is on the fritz, so it's an Instagram photo this week. I love this picture. Amelia is 8 weeks old this week. I got her a little grey elephant for Valentines day that she loves. So here is a little extra cuteness.

Happy Vinyl Day


Happy Valentines Day!

Right now my husband is playing a show in town with Lucero. So I am making chocolate mustaches and hearts, listening to vinyl, and dyeing my hair. Amelia is sleeping in her swing like a little angel.

My husband and I have a Valentines Day tradition where we buy each other vinyl and usually eat Asian food. So it's been a great day!


I've also been hard at work on my dolls and a cute (and quick) business card idea. Here's a sneak peek at some unfinished dolls.


I hope everyone had a wonderful day and stay tuned for the official opening of my shop soon!

That's What She Said Sunday


I feel like I am drawn to things that most people would pass by or deem ugly. I kinda like those things because no one has them. Who wants something that is boring?!

Be Present

Recently I was in the waiting room at the doctor's office and I noticed that everyone (and I  mean everyone) was completely absorbed in their phones. I was the only odd ball reading a real book. Since that day I notice it everywhere I go, even at home. I'm not gonna lie and say I'm never on my phone because that would be a lie, I am addicted to Instagram, Twitter, and now Vine.

This observation has got me thinking about how things used to be before we all had iPhones as an extension of ourselves. What are we missing out on as our heads are down, eyes locked onto the tiny screen?

So this is my reminder to you, to put your phone down sometimes and just relish in the moment now. You may be missing out on something precious while you're trying to document and share it with the world. Just enjoy, and be present. I know I am...

That's What She Said Sunday


Happy Super Bowl Sunday. If I had cable I would watch it for Beyonce. I'm sure her performance will be on YouTube later.
