Halloween 2015 Part II

Saturday night a group of us headed to the Houston Museum of Natural Science for their
annual Halloween Party!

If this wasn't the greatest idea I've ever had.. then, HELL I don't know what is...
Claire and I LOVED being Taco twins for the night!

Kyle has never been one for costumes but he was a good sport 
and represented 'Merica pretty dang well.

Such a handsome little devil.

Not going to lie, It was slightly weird and crazy being in the middle of a museum partying...

Everyone LOVED mine and Claire's costumes, these 'best friend' hats are definitely one of the 
best purchases i've ever made.

We met up with my sister and brother in law and a group of their friends, 
and I'm SO sad we didn't get any pictures with them!
It was definitely hard keeping up with everyone and trying to stay together in such a huge place.

If you live in Houston I would HIGHLY recommend going next year, 
we had so much fun!!

What was your costume this year?!?! I could always use ideas ;)

Halloween 2015 Part I

This Halloween was definitely one for the books.

Kyle and I really haven't done anything for Halloween since college
 so we were WAY overdue for a little fun.

We had plans for Saturday but my best friend Claire and I felt the urge to troll the town Friday night.
So...Vampires it was!

We had THE best night.
Claire is one of those friends where you can literally be sitting in a dumpster, starving, naked, in 20 degree weather and you will still be having the best time of your life.
She definitely makes this life of mine WAY brighter.

We headed to midtown and met up with Kyle's cousin & his girlfriend for a little bit.
Then continued roaming the streets and being constantly asked if we were twins,
to which we of course replied with "duh, how'd ya know?!"

We get that question pretty regularly, and we kind of love it.
Friday was lots of fun, I'll never get sick of girls nights no matter how old I get...
But SATURDAY is when the real party happened...

Check back tomorrow to see our best friend taco costumes y'all.

Shout out to Jesus.

Every now and then life throws you a curve ball and you have to make really tough decisions.

At the age of 26 i've officially learned that life truly isn't fair, 
and sometimes things happen... 
 People will enter into your life and completely alter it without your consent or control... 
or maybe you do have control, 
but you just have no idea why God placed them there or what their purpose in your life is,
Questioning if they are supposed to stay and be a big part of your life, 
maybe even your whole life...
or if they were always just supposed to be temporary.

I guess there will always be unanswered questions in these crazy lives we lead,
 and maybe it's better off that way.

Shout out to Jesus. 

For loving me even though I fail Him every day...
For pushing me to make tough decisions and grow from them...
For blessing me with a TRUE friendship when I needed it most...
 For providing me with a husband that sees all my flaws and loves me the same...
For a family that supports every decision and goal I have...

 Going back to what I said about life being unfair,
maybe it's only felt that way lately because i've been relying on myself too much and not on Him.

Sneaky Weekend Away.

Kyle and I have been nonstop lately!
I feel like every single weekend there is something going on, 
which definitely isn't a bad thing, but SHEESH we are tired!!

A couple weeks ago my step mother in law called me and shared some super exciting news with me!
Taryn, Kyles step sister was getting ENGAGED the following weekend and it was a big secret.
So this past weekend Kyle and I headed to the Rio Grande Valley for the surprise!

We got there late Friday evening and didnt have plans until Saturday night!
We spent Saturday at the ranch with Kevin (Kyle's cousin)
I've been dying to shoot my gun lately & Charley got to run her little heart out, 
so it was kind of the perfect afternoon.

We spent the afternoon outdoors at the ranch and then at the pool,
and THEN we got ready for the big surprise...

Come back tomorrow to check out the ROCK that Taryn is now proudly wearing.

xoxo, Monica

Friday was spent with some of my fellow girl bosses!!
We sipped on margaritas and had some excellent girl talk...
which of course led to a very eventful night.

We started the night at Cylone Anayas in midtown 
and then ended up walking around to different bars around the area!

If you follow me on snapchat I'm sure you felt like you were with us haha
There was LOTS and lots of singing going on.
We ended the night at "Shot Bar", 
where we spent lots of time dancing to Taylor Swift on the bar... heard that right.

I hope everyone has a Happy Tuesday!!!

Last Thursday Kyle and I went to dinner with his mom, nana, & papa!

It was so nice getting to catch up with them!
It was also kind of nice being the only "kids" there,
 since we're so used to it being a huge packed table with the whole family.
 It was fun to be able to give and receive everyone's full attention for a change! Ha!

We ended up going to Shogun and boy oh boy they never disappoint!

Family time is always  good time, super blessed that Kyle and I both have incredible families.

On another note,
I'm currently drinking/trying out a new a pre work out in hopes that it'll give me some energy!
I have been sooooo tired & lazy lately and it is NOT okay.
I'll be sure to let y'all know it it works and if I recommend it!
Happy Monday Everyone, make the best of it!

PS: This is currently my all time favorite hairstyle, my girlfriend Rachel did it for me a few weeks ago and I was able to master it myself and pretty much do it ALL the time now. Leave a comment if you want me to make a video tutorial!! It's SO easy!!!

This past weekend was totally all about wine.

We ran into the nicest biker gang EVER and they were seriously so awesome and sweet.
One of the ladies even offered to take pictures of all of us on her bike! 

After our mini photoshoot we headed to a winery to get the day started!
And goodness was it stunning!

It was seriously THE perfect day!
Girlfriends & Wine really go hand in hand.
