    Happy 4th of July!

    Today I wanted to keep in short and sweet with this red polka dot dress for $40 I wore on our trip to Tulum. Josh and I went to have drinks at Kin Toh Azulik which was the coolest tree house restaurant overlooking the beach and jungles of Tulum. The architecture was marvelous and the scenic views so unique. Even the bathrooms were beautiful. It was so eco friendly, with limited electricity, and no central air conditioning. They had a live DJ and a hookah bar. Kin Toh was definitely a place to see in Tulum.  Check out more pictures of this restaurant and my outfit below!

    Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great week! Today on the blog I wanted to share with you my favorite Instagram worthy brunch spots in Houston. I get this question a lot, and more specifically on “cute/pretty” brunch spots in Houston, because lets face it we go as much for the food as we do the ambience. And there is nothing like taking a cute food picture in a picturesque setting. As a blogger who loves to eat and try new things, I am always on the hunt for cute places to eat at and also take pictures at. Last year around this time I did a previous round-up of the most Instagram worthy brunch spots in Houston you can check out here, which are still some of my favorite places to go to! But I thought I would continue with the series with all the new brunch spots that have been to this year that I HIGHLY recommend you check out. Check out my top picks of Instagram worthy brunch spots in Houston below!

My mouth is literally watering just thinking about it. Check out my 5 Things You Must Absolutely Do When You Visit New Mexico when traveling with a toddler.

    Hey everyone!

    Sorry I missed Wednesday’s post. With the snow day we had, and some really exciting news I had, it through me off schedule. But today is a special day because our little man turns three today! I cannot believe how time flies when you have kids. I just can’t believe how big Jayden is getting. This past year he has done tumbling, soccer, snowboarding, and currently in swimming, and next month he will start t-ball! This year will definitely be an active one for our little guy. He has so much energy, and he is such a team player. I am one proud momma to see my little guy grow up to be such a smart and sweet little boy. He amazes me everyday with everything he does, and he certainly pushes us to be the best parents we can be. This past month my husband and I went over some family goals we had for this New Year, and today on the blog I am sharing those goals with you plus our beautiful family pictures in Colorado! Can you believe this is a frozen lake behind us? Check out more below! Continue reading

    This past weekend we had the opportunity to spend the weekend at the newest luxury hotel in Houston, the Hotel Alessandra, for a little holiday staycation to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Did you know I never knew about staycations until I became a mom? Let’s face it, when you have kids it is hard to get away for long periods of time, especially finding someone to watch your child for longer than a weekend. But sometimes as parents you just need a weekend to getaway and recharge, and just focus on your other half. Staycations are perfect for those moments, whether it be for your anniversary, just because, or in our case a weekend away to celebrate my husband’s 30th birthday. Today I am sharing all about our luxurious weekend at the Hotel Alessandra and the perfect outfit for a night out on the town.
