The kids and I went to see Santa today at Galleria Dallas today! How cute is this set up?! Santa’s house was LEGIT adorable. We got a sneak a peek at the SnowDay Dallas immersive holiday photo experience, which has dozens of fun Christmas-themed photo opps – including Santa’s RV and a fun train ride to the North Pole.

Happy Halloween from the Koches! Unlike years past, no real theme this year. Everyone (the kids) wanted to be something different and one Koch wanted to be nothing at all. So, with that, I present Dino, Fishstick, Sauvignon Blech and Grumpy Papa!

I was sorting through photos on my phone and started reminiscing about our wedding day in 2014. I thought y’all might like to see some photos from the fun-filled day, filled with many of our favorite people on the planet. San Francisco and its GORGEOUS City Hall played incomparable backdrop for the mid-afternoon service, which was followed by a boozy trolley ride to see the sights and an evening of dinner and dancing at the private dining room of Absinthe in the Hayes Valley neighborhood. (Of course, I cried through the entire service!)

I’ve been called a Vaccine Pimp, Vaccine Hunter, Vaccine Angel, Vaccine Pusher and even Vaccine Harriet Tubman (by a Black friend). Whatever folks call me, one of my unexpected new-found hobbies has been finding and spreading the word about vaccine availability. To date, I’ve had over 200 friends and family…and their friends and family…tell me that I’ve helped them to more easily secure appointments. Here’s my secret to success!

We don’t get snow often in Texas, and certainly not enough to shut down Dallas for over a week! The kids were out of school for SEVEN days…and we made the most of it.

I take caring for my face very seriously. At the same time, I really don’t want it to be a massive chore, time suck or budget buster. Here’s a rundown of my process and the products I use.
