Friday Friday Friday! I swear, it still feels like Tuesday to me 😳 I’m just a few days off, right? I can’t believe another week has flown by as we watch our home get built from the ground up. Our soon-to-be home is already framed out and I can’t help but think what it’s going to be like once we’re all done and moved in. I can’t wait to make more memories like these with my precious kiddos in a home that I know we will all love. I’m in full-on planning mode over here and can’t wait to get the new home all decorated. What are your weekend plans?
We might not all be looking at the camera, but we actually got a family photo on the front porch of our soon-to-be home! Framing started to go up last week and it’s already been so cool to see my vision come to life after months of planning. Chad and I always loved walking through new construction homes, so it’s almost like the reality hasn’t set in yet that this is actually OUR home. We’re thrilled beyond belief, but I think I still feel like I’m dreaming over here 😊😊 #thankful #sosothankful
So I’ve been wondering lately if you guys would be interested in a Q&A series focused on home decorating and interior design. They could be questions about my past homes, design tips, favorite places to shop, etc. Let me know if this might be a fun series!! Comment below yay👍🏻 or nay 👎🏻 😘😘
Halloween outfit #1 for the day! These are their school outfits and we’ll have a second set of costumes for this evening. I’m so shocked they actually let us put those hats on them. AND they stayed still long enough to take a photo! Hoping I’ll have the same luck tonight with their Wizard of Oz costumes. What costumes are y’all wearing tonight!? I’m loving all the costume pictures I’m seeing this morning!! 🧡🧡
Today is a GOOD DAY! Why you ask? Well after weeks of delay (due to the down pour of rain we’ve been experiencing here in Texas) our foundation on our new home is finally being poured!!! 🤗🤗 I want to jump up and down from pure excitement! Heading to our lot this afternoon to check it out and planning on taking at least a gazillion pictures — that’s normal, right? 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ :: also, outfit details on the blog 👉🏻AmyHorany.com👈🏻
All the morning snuggles on this Saturday 💕💕Though the morning started off nice and quite, both babies are throwing some lovely tantrums in an attempt to avoid nap time 😳 The ironic thing about that is, they are throwing tantrums BECAUSE they’re so tired. 🤦🏻♀️😐🤷🏻♀️ Meh - what can ya do? At least they’re cute 👶🏻👶🏻 Like, really cute 💕💕 #ineedmorecoffee #andpatience #lordhelpme — Anyone else having an eventful Saturday? What are your weekend plans?
It’s finally FRIDAY! Is it just me, or did October completely fly by? I mean, how is Halloween already next week!? 😳😳 Maybe it was all the rain we experienced here in Texas. 2 weeks straight of rain made all of us wanting the days to pass quickly. Now all of a sudden we’re almost to November. October is always my favorite month, so I’m super sad it’s nearly over. — On another note, all that rain has pushed back the build of our house 🏡😩😢 The foundation was supposed to be poured weeks ago, then last got moved to last Tuesday, then was pushed to today. The verdict is still out on whether or not it will be poured today, so cross your fingers for me that it will happen!! More rain is expected next week and will push us back again if we don’t get it poured ASAP. On the other hand, I really don’t feel like I have much to complain about. We’re thrilled to be building a beautiful house in an area that we love, and we’re so thankful to be close to our loved ones all along the way. What are you thankful for this Friday?? Would love to hear all your good vibes 😘😘 — :: Side note :: outfit details for this look will be on the blog next week! More to come 💕💕
Last one, I swear! I just can’t get enough of the pictures I took this week of the kiddos. I seriously look at them multiple times a day with the biggest smile on my face. Especially this one of Harper. It took this girl a while to open up (she normally has a pretty strong “mean mug” going on) but the older she gets, the more smiley she becomes. It makes my heart melt to see how much she’s grown up over the last year. 💕💕💕 ——— Today on the blog I’m talking about how I’m transitioning my kid’s style from summer to fall. Outfits (head to toe) are from @target — full details on AmyHorany.com
Oh my little babes! They’re finally sound asleep after an evening of tantrums, endless crumbs and clean bottoms. Their teeth didn’t get brushed tonight, but I’m going to give myself a pass, because — well, sometimes I feel like us moms need to give ourselves a little break every now and then. Anyone else with me on this? Also... man, they’re cute 😳💕 ——— Tonight on the blog I’m talking about how I’m transitioning my kid’s style from summer to fall. Outfits (head to toe) are from @target 🎯 @catandjackbytarget @oshkoshkids
When Daddy has to work late, Mommy takes the kiddos out for a “hike” (aka an impromptu photo shoot for the blog 😉) I bribed them with fruit snacks and darn proud of it! Can’t wait to share my upcoming post about transitioning my kid’s style from summer to fall. More to come on the blog!
Surprise date night with the hubs!! Yet another reason why I love living close to family. My sweet mother and father-n-law called us at 5 pm tonight and offered to watch our beautiful babies while Chad and I go on a much-needed date. We chose a night of shopping at the @tangeroutlets and now we’re headed to @micocina_texmex for a yummy margarita and some delicious dinner. Before we left, I found these amazing @stevemadden boots half off and literally walked out of the store wearing them 😳😳 What can I say? They matched my outfit 😊 Anyone else getting out of the house for a night of fun?
Oh my sweet little babes. Even on a challenging morning like this morning, they still melt my heart like no other. Hudson is in a phase where he loves feeding Harper, and my little chunk-a-monk, Harper, is in a stage where she’s LOVING all the extra snacks 😊😊 I mean, I don’t blame her. Who doesn’t love extra snacks? Anyone else in this precious stage of life? They are 1 and 2 years old and are really starting to test mommy and daddy, yet at the same time they are such angels 😇😇 There is a reason why God made kiddos so stinking cute 😉💕😉💕
Who says yellow is just for summer? These mustard yellow tassels have been my go-to for the start of the #fall season 🍂🍃🍁 They range from $10 - $15 and were found on the one and only @amazon 😉 Check out 👉🏻AmyHorany.com👈🏻for the full post with all the lovely details (including product links) 👌🏻
Ok. Let’s talk about these earrings for a minute. 😍😍 They’re $15. They ship for free. And they’re from AMAZON. 😳 What!?? 😳 If you like these beauties, you will love tonight’s post on AmyHorany.com👌🏻I’m sharing my latest roundup of Amazon goodies, and tonight’s focus is all about those tassel earrings 😘😘 Oh, and they’re all under $15. Yeah. You’re welcome.
This past weekend Chad and I said goodbye to our beautiful Fort Worth home to embark on a new journey! We made the move out to the country to be closer to family and we couldn’t be more excited about it. We will miss this home dearly, but look forward to new memories to be made. More details to come on the blog soon! Bye bye sweet home - we love you and will miss you!!!
For those of you who caught my insta story last night, you might have noticed a family dance party 💃🏻💃🏻(nothing abnormal about that) but you also might have noticed some boxes 📦 📦😳😳 Yupp! We’re moving! I won’t get into too many details just yet, but the plan is to build a home out closer to our family. We look forward to weekly gatherings with the grandparents, sleepovers with the cousins and many more (much-needed) date nights for the two of us. 😘😘 This home has been SO good to us and we will miss it dearly. We poured our heart and soul into this renovation and we’re excited for the amazing family that will give it the same love that we did. Cheers to exciting changes and big moves! 🥂 photo cred: 📸 @reveriephotoco 📸
Confession: My living room DOES NOT look like this right now 😳 The last few days I’ve been prepping for a garage sale and getting organized. And as we all know, that can get messy! Yearning for my clean house right now — 😩 Maybe one day it will look like this again. Wait. Who am I kidding? I have two kids. My house is never this clean! 👉🏻Triple tap for sources👈🏻
So blessed! Today we celebrated Hudson and Harper’s 1st and 2nd birthday 🎉🎂 Our two rascals are the best thing that has ever happened to us and we are so thankful for their little hearts and minds. Parenthood is a daily challenge, but it’s worth every second. Especially when you get to share it with your one and only - @chadhorany 💙 #thankful #happybirthdaykiddos
My dearest Hudson - 2 years ago today you made me a mama 💙 I didn’t know what to expect when it came to motherhood, but when you came into this world, you wiped all of my fears away. Every time I look at you, I always say “Hudson - there’s no way mommy and daddy could have made you ANY more perfect than you already are!” I literally say that nearly every day 😊😊 I love you so much my sweet baby boy. How are you already TWO!?? 👶🏻👶🏻💙💙
You guys - why is it that I always forget to share photos of my kitchen? It’s one of my favorite rooms in our house and took the longest to renovate in our year-long renovation. It’s truly the “heart of the home” ☺️☺️ What’s your favorite thing about this space? Mine is the oversized island and quartzite countertop 😍😍
Happy first birthday to the most beautiful baby girl I’ve ever laid eyes on! Harper Grace - you’re the best daughter and little sister that we ever could have asked for. Your smile is contagious and your big brown eyes get me every time. You have an appetite of a linebacker and the laugh of an angel. I love you baby girl. You are our beauty queen 👑💕👑💕 photo cred: @reveriephotoco
Today in Texas, the high is 105 degrees... WHAT?!? 😳😳😳 How is that even possible? Thankfully the evenings have been pretty manageable and we’ve still been able to enjoy our back patio, which will probably be our plan for tonight. Anyone else already planning for the weekend on this Friday morning? #friyay #texas #summer
This little guy isn’t even 2 years old yet, and he’s already showing an interest in potty training! So - naturally I decided it would be a good idea to go to @target to get his first “big boy” potty, but instead bought the entire store... 😳 Let’s be honest, I just really wanted to go to Target. Who else is with me? #addictedtotarget #itsaproblem #sorrynotsorry 👉🏻Triple tap for sources 👈🏻
Despite the #Texas heat (and a few pesky mosquitoes) we’ve still managed to enjoy our front porch this week. With both kiddos now walking, they so badly want to roam outside, and this has been a perfect hang out for us. Thank you @fouroakbedswings for giving us so many beautiful memories!
