Hey there!  I’m so grateful you have chosen to spend time with me here.


I am the proud, single mom of three amazing and precious children! Chase is an official adult who graduated from OSU last year. He’s back in Dallas working full time & going to grad school, so I feel like somewhat of a successful mom! Colton just started his junior year at Texas A&M (gig ‘em), and Caitlyn is now a Senior in high school. In one short year, I’ll be an empty nester. My greatest dream has always been to be a mom. I actually had Chase just before my 23rd birthday, and he wasn't a surprise. I literally could not wait to start motherhood.

It was time to do something creative of my own.

The kids were getting older and doing more of their own thing so I decided to go for it. With zero marketing skills, no business degree, and nothing but a love for affordable fashion, NINE was born.


NINE, my online Facebook boutique, began in 2016. I posted nine new styles of jewelry every Tuesday night at 9:00 PM. Soon I added accessories, then clothes, and eventually a website.

My number one goal has always been to bring others affordable fashion. I didn’t grow up with the ability to shop in nice stores so I learned early how to dress cute—without the big price tags. Think of DBB as your go-to boutique, plus affordable online shopping source (#Target, #Amazon #etc) all rolled into one.

I'm so excited...

I'm SO excited to share this space with you for all the best sales, affordable fashion, home décor bargains, recipes to make life easier, and adventures in the Dallas area. I’ll hook you up with my recent Target finds AND the best spicy jalapeño margarita in Dallas. Cheers to that!

I live for patio weather. Give me a peppery cabernet and a charcuterie board, and I am one happy girl.

02.

You should know ... I'm all about Jesus, family, friends, our goldendoodle, hot coffee and affordable fashion.

I'm a northeast Texas girl, say "oh my stars," and love my momma's homemade coconut cream pie.
