Courtney G  ATX Mom. Wife. Amused. The three F's (fun, family, food) The good life. Join the club.

For some people it is hard to eat ice cream 🍦 without spilling it all over yourself. (I'm talking about me)

Happy Valentine's loves! An oldie but goodie (if you ignore my double chin!)

My dern dog (sometimes when I am upset the Texan slips out) ate an entire chicken carcass while I was at Costco. All of it. Like it never even existed. Obviously dogs are not supposed to eat chicken bones, much less ALL the bones. So now I am stuck at home monitoring him to make sure he is ok.
Don't think I am totally heartless, I am worried about him, but so far so good. Unfortunately, this isn't his first time eating things he should not eat.

But Mama needed her margarita and adult interaction this afternoon with the other kinder moms and now I'm stuck at home because my husband is out of town (since January 11th that jerk) and the dog needs to be watched closely for at least 24 hours. #pitypartyforone #lovemydog #really

Seriously, Junie B. Jones? Aunt Flo is getting married? #kidsbookmomhumor

I just have to say that @vetiverskinstudio is absolutely amazing. @carrie__sexton has solved the problem of my problem skin. Not to mention she is an awesome person. And her new studio in an old house is gorgeous. Go there now. #thisisnotanad #ijustloveitsomuch

If you're going to San Francisco 🎶 ... like I am in two months with four kids and three adults, where would you go? What are your favorite things to do in #sanfrancisco with kids? #nationalplanyourvacationday

A few months ago @drafthouse did the most amazing thing. They let these little monsters watch Pete’s Dragon in a completely separate movie theatre, supervised by loving nannies, while their parents watched Sausage Party without kids. We were even able to order their food from our seats.

Outside of a few minor food mix-ups (but hey, it was their first time trying it out) mommy and son both loved it.
Since then we have anxiously awaited the announcement of the next movie with childcare. The wait is over! @drafthouseaustin offering this service again on February 11th and 12th at their Slaughter Lane location. The movies are the Lego Batman Movie for the kids and Fifty Shades Darker for the adults (“complete with hootin’ and hollerin’” according to the website.). Check out the link in my bio for more information and to buy tickets. It looks like they have made a few changes and improvements since their trial run.
Let me know if you end up going!

I put together a list of South and Central Austin birthday party locations to help myself and hopefully you. (Link in bio). Added bonus you get my honest reviews of places where I've hosted or attended birthday parties. What do you think? Are there any locations you would add?

When we practice yoga at home, so do all the lego figures. #legoyoga #settingthemuptookalongtime

It is cold and rainy so I'm currently #teamsummer and wishing for green grass and homemade popsicles. When it is in the middle of summer I'm a strong supporter of #teamwinter. #fairweatherfan #seewhatididthere

This is the face of an absolutely adorable child who tried to make me breakfast in bed and then tripped and spilled most of the cereal. On me. In bed. #goodmorning #candyforbreakfast #thisisfive

Thinking back to this beautiful day in Edinburgh. Or at least it was beautiful for a minute and then it started raining again. ☔️ So wonderful to see family. Can't wait until we can visit again. ❤️❤️
