    Bridgeland the Pet Friendly Masterplanned Community

    This post is in partnership with Bridgeland.family pictures, new home, Houston new homesHi everyone!

    Last week, my family and I attended the 10th annual Howl-O-Ween Fest at the Bridgeland master planned community in Cypress, Texas. It was our first time going, and Jayden had so much fun especially since we got to bring Rotel, his best furry friend. It’s one of the biggest pet-friendly Houston events for Halloween for the whole family with tons of games, food trucks, and even a costume contest. Jayden and Rotel went as Batman and Superman! While we were there, we even got to tour some of the model homes in the community. Our family is looking to build a new home next year and hopefully expand our family. We absolutely fell in love with the homes in Bridgeland. In fact, I think we might have even found our dream home! If you are looking at new homes in Houston for your family, here are seven reasons the Bridgeland community is the perfect pet-friendly master planned community for your family.

    Happy Sunday,

    Today on the blog I am sharing our glamping experience in camp cod with Glamping Hub and five things to do in the fall. We had such a fun time on our trip a couple weeks ago and we were able to check off a couple things off our bucket list. Cape Cod is quieter in the fall as it is off season, but for us it was the perfect time to bring our family since we didn’t have to worry about crowds or lines. We were able to really immerse ourself in nature and enjoy the simple things like bird watching or roasting marshmallows by the fireplace. Check out more of our stay in our cute cape cod cottage with Glamping Hub below and the top five thing to do in the fall in Cape Cod.

    Travel Guide for a Layover Trip to Windsor, England

    FEATURED ON THIS POST:

    Hey everyone,

    Hope you had a great weekend! Today I’m so excited to finally share my travel guide to our quick layover to Windsor, England. It was a quick little day trip but so worth it if you have six hours to spare between flights. “Windsor is a historic market town and unparished area in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead in Berkshire, England. It is widely known as the site of Windsor Castle, one of the official residences of the British Royal Family.” We chose to go to Windsor instead of London because of how close of a drive it was to Heathrow  Airport. It is literally only 20 minutes away. We didn’t have to worry about traffic or feeling rushed. Plus I feel like London is a city you would need multiple days to explore. I personally wanted to visit the town Meghan Markle got married in! If you are looking to experience the beautiful countryside of England full of rich history and culture check out my travel guide for layover trip to Windsor, England.

So today I thought I’d share what my experience in having a bipartisan family in Texas and tips to surviving the election.
