sitting made simple® fort worth

Are you the parent that panics when you realize you need a babysitter?  I mean, I'm the mom that panics over just about anything because I have severe anxiety lol buuuut babysitting outside the family was definitely one of those things that I avoided.  Chris and I are blessed to have our parents in the metroplex and I also have an older brother which gives us great access to free babysitting (praise!) but it's not always the most convenient.  That usually involves us driving Kendall at least 30-45 mins or someone coming to pick up Kendall, transferring a car seat and packing a bag... OR someone driving to us and they end up spending more time in the car than we actually needed them to babysit!

I told Chris awhile ago... we need an option where we can have a babysitter for an hour or two and not ask our family members to always change their schedules and do so much driving.  And believe it or not, even with 5 adults in our immediate family nearby, we still have times when no one is available... I mean, not everyone is just sitting around waiting to help us!... they do have lives of their own! Whaaaat?! ;)

Alex and the basic blogger b*tch brunch

Today I just wanted to share some mad love for a blogger babe that does so much for this blogging community!  Alex, the Basic Blogger Bitch, is my homegirl now and I'm not exaggerating when I say I feel truly blessed to know her and to be in her space!  This girl has crazy blogging skills... her blog is killer!... but she also has this skill for bringing people together and making everyone feel welcome and special.
I have so much respect for Alex and her owning her "basic blogger" status.  She turned criticism into a brand and I'm so impressed by that.  I'm obsessed with her story and her blog name!  I can tell you right now that I had nowhere near the confidence she does when I was in my 20s... and let me be very clear here... it's CONFIDENCE not arrogance.  She owns who she is and what she loves to do; she didn't allow anyone's whispering in her ear to deter her from what she wants to be doing.  On top of that, she has dedicated a lot of time to helping other bloggers with their journey as well as organizing brunches to bring so many of us together throughout DFW.  It actually makes me emotional to know that she saw something in me way back when and decided to include me in her Basic Blogger Bitch Brunches!  Thank you Alex!

a few Fort Worth Christmas events I'm looking forward to

Happy December!!  I can't believe how quickly the holidays are coming... that Thanksgiving is already over a week past and we're into the last month of the year!  The holidays go by so quickly so I've tried really hard to be as on top of things this year as I can be.  I'm already done with a lot of my shopping; we've had our Christmas tree up for a week now... and we're working on the outside lights next!  Hopefully this weekend!  (That's on you, hubby!!)

We haven't attended any holiday events yet which is strange for us, but hey, life is busy!  But since today is the first day of December, I thought I'd share some events that I have my eye on and I'm looking forward to!
