Lil Luna Link Party 117

Link Party · March 5, 2013

Can you believe it’s March?!


Time flies by way too quick when you’re having fun, right?!

TWO things….



Not only will we be welcoming Baby #4 (that’s 4 kids five and under) in May, but we’re also moving to TEXAS in May.

EEK!! I’m so excited and so scared at the same time. Both mine and my hubby’s families are here in Arizona, and we are 15 minutes away from both. Now, we will be leaving everything we know to have our own family adventure in Houston. It will be so sad to leave family and friends in Arizona (especially all my blog buddies), but am thrilled to make new friends in Texas! So, if any of you are there let me know – I’d love to connect with you and meet you!!

With that being said, things are going to be darn right crazy here at our home, so I appreciate your patience with emails and everything else over the next few months as we prepare for a baby, selling a home, buying a home and preparing to leave all our family.

{Not sure how I’ll do it all}


SO, that’s my big announcement! Lots going on here, and I hope things won’t be as crazy at your house as they will be at mine.


I wanted to make sure you guys knew about an upcoming Twitter party that I am helping co-host. Here are the details…

#DTSpringBreak Twitter party details

What: It’s that time of the year – cabin fever kicks in and the whole family feels stir crazy. Could you use a Spring Break? Let’s talk vacations! Join the party to learn what to look for when selecting a hotel, tips for traveling with children and trip location suggestions. If you have any plans for the upcoming Spring Break, we’d love to hear about them! Be sure to bring thoughts and advice based on your past family vacation experiences. We’ll also be talking about family-friendly packages at select DoubleTree by Hilton properties.

When: Tuesday, March 12, at 1 p.m. ET (the party will last one hour)

Where: We’ll be on Twitter – follow the #DTSpringBreak hashtag to track the conversation. You can see the details and RSVP via this Twtvite:

Hashtag: #DTSpringBreak

Prizes: DoubleTree by Hilton will give away five total prizes. Four prizes will consist of tins of DoubleTree by Hilton’s signature cookies (one tin for the Q1 winner, two tins for the Q2 winner, etc), with one grand prize of a free two-night stay at any DoubleTree by Hilton location. Winners will be chosen randomly from among participants who respond correctly to trivia questions.

Hosts: @theMotherhood, @CooperMunroe, @EmilyMcKhann, @doubletree

TweetGrid for the party:

Did you see you could win a two-night stay at any DoubleTree by Hilton?!

SA-WEET!!! Be sure to come on over cuz I’ll be there, and I want you there too!!

K, enough announcements for now – Let’s get this party started!

The Contessa (Linda)

I don’t know about baby #4, but you will love Houston. It is almost next door to the beach. Great places to eat. Culturally enhanced events and sites. Fun things to do there.
I brought over my TGIF Chocolate Cake from What’d You Do This Weekend? Hope you will join us.



Wow! How exciting!! Congrats 🙂
Thanks for the party!!

Leslee Sitton

We are down here and Pearlamd and love it! Great ward and a fun area to explore!

    Lil' Luna

    Hey Leslee!! My hubby was just there this weekend and met Sean for the first time. We can’t wait to get to Pearland and become friends with all of you guys in the ward!! 😀

      Leslee Sitton

      Yes, Sean said he met him! So fun!


Thanks so much for hosting, it was my first time linking up with you and so glad I did!

I have been living in Texas the past 6 years, in the Houston area as well! 🙂 I know great places to look for homes, all the yummy restaurants, family fun places, and a great church! Give me a shout, I would love to give you the low down!


KC @ The Real Thing with the Coake Family

Thanks so much for hosting! I hope things go smoothly for you preparing to sell, selling and moving. I moved across the country when I was 8 months pregnant. That nesting instinct really helped with getting myself unpacked! we moved in our house and 10 days later I had my daughter…I was almost all the way unpacked and settled. 🙂
Take care and just try to take a deep breath and deal with things as they come (I stink at it, but maybe you are better at that than I am).

Rhonda @ The Messy Roost

Thanks for the fun party. Have a great week. Rhonda

Danielle Reeves

That’s so exciting – congrats! We actually just moved to Texas from Utah just over a month ago, and also had lived really close to family/friends. Please email me if you have any questions, or want any pointers! What part of Texas are you coming to?

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks, Danielle!! We’ll be in Houston… where are you at?

      Danielle Reeves

      We’re just north of Dallas – so about 4 hours from you. So far we love it here, so I’m sure you’ll love it as well! Do you have help moving, or kind of just on your own?

Little Sis

Thanks so much for hosting! Hope you’re having a great week!

Becky Crutcher

Karyn - Pint Sized Baker

Just popping over to say thanks for hosting!


Wow Kristyn! so much going on!! Exciting and stressful all at once! We have family in Dallas and Austin. They all love it. Hopefully it’s not too far from your family. That would be the hardest part (for me)

Good luck with the move and everything!

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks, Kami!! Definitely a crazy time! We’ll be in Houston and actually have the hubby’s sister and some friends there already, so we’re hoping it isn’t too huge of an adjustment. Unfortunately, I won’t be at the conferences this year, but hopefully next year, and I hope to see you then!! XO


Thanks for hosting 🙂


You are a busy lady! Hope you can get a little rest in there too somewhere 🙂 Thank you so much for hosting Kristyn!

xo, Tanya


Hi there! Thanks for the wonderful party each week! We are in Texas too, about 6 hours from Houston, but if you every have any questions about Texas life. let me know! My Dad lived in Houston for years! Texas will be glad to welcome your family! 🙂


Wow… that’s a lot going on! Congratulations on all your big news, an amazing new season to look forward to.


I live in Houston! Well about 30 minutes from downtown in the north area. We love it here! Our family is not here as well, so it’s been hard but loving Texas a lot!

Laura Beth

Fantastic party as always!!


I seriously can’t even imagine having 4 children under the age of 5. I respect and admire you so much for that. I also cannot not believe that my craft room got the most views! What??? That’s kinda cool 🙂 Good luck with your move…my goodness…sending well wishes and prayers your way!

Thanks so much for hosting the party! Have a great week!


Thanks so much for always hosting such a wonderful link party! Best wishes with moving and your new little one. Doesn’t it seem like life happens all at once sometimes? Sounds like you’ll be busy as can be, but new experiences are always exciting! Have a great day!

Congratulations on Baby #4! I hope the move goes flawlessly. Houston is a great place to live, and I’m sure you’ll love it! If you haven’t already, I’d love if you’d come join my How To Tuesday link party, too.


Well, welcome to Houston! I was born and raised here, so if you have any questions or need help finding anything, give me a shout!

Sarah Runyon

My husband and I are in Houston! We left both our families back in Colorado when we moved 8 months ago. It’s been an adjustment but we are really starting to like it here. 🙂


I live in Houston! YAY!


OMG!!! I can’t believe you are coming to Houston. I live in Houston on the Northwest side. I’d love to get together with you after you move. This is so exciting!! I love your blog and now you will be here in Houston!!! Yeehaw!!


Awww, Congrats Kristyn! So happy for you and your cute family! Also so impressed with all you accomplish being a prego mom.
I grew up in Houston (The Woodlands) my entire life (but live in Park City, UT now). I LOVE TX, but am bias, of course. Just returned from there and it was sunny and 70s. Summers are HOT, but other months are fab, which is probably comparable to AZ, but you will definitely get more rain, which I love and miss. What part of Houston? Good luck!


thanks for hosting, each week when i link up, linky crashes multiple times before i can link up. don’t know if anyone else is having that problem, but sometimes it’s so frustrating i don’t end up linking up!

jules p

i don’t live far from Houston. And I love it here. Of course, I was born and raised in my town…moved to Alabama for 6 years but we moved back! Hope you like it here.

The Weary Chef

Congratulations on a new baby!! That is so exciting!

Thanks for hosting, as always 🙂

Angie -
