With all this traveling done this summer, I’ve learned a thing or two about packing. Some I learned the hard way and through many mistakes on my part. But through my mistakes I’ve shared some travel tips for packing your carry-on bag.
This week has been a busy week. My hubby and I celebrated our two-year anniversary! We had an amazing night, having wine and dinner with a beautiful sunset view on the water, and then topped it off with our very own s’mores bar. It was absolutely perfect. If you didn’t get to check it out on Snapchat, I posted this picture of my outfit and the view on my Instagram. Two weeks ago we went to Chicago for a little weekend getaway to mark our second year of marriage and our first trip out of the state without the baby. It was hard for us to leave the little guy, but we knew he was in good hands with our family. Those three days in Chicago were amazing. It was one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to, great weather, delicious food, and we stayed in one of the best hotels in Chicago. There are so many things to do and see especially in three days in Chicago, so I teamed up with the Betsy Boo’s Boutique to give you the best tips on what to wear, where to go, places to eat, and where to stay from a couple’s perspective.
Last weekend we had the privilege to stay at the Lone Star Court in Austin courtesy of the hotel. It was a fun, family trip to celebrate my mom’s birthday and to visit my brother who lives in Austin. The hotel coincidently was the perfect location for us to stay at in Austin. We were five minutes from my brother’s new place and walking distance to the best shopping and dining at the Domain. The Lone Star Court is a unique, family friendly hotel, and the perfect place to stay in Austin. Check out my video tour of the hotel, and pictures of our room below.
Last weekend we were fortunate to stay at the Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE for Mother’s Day weekend. It was truly a 5 star experience. I couldn’t have asked for anything more for Mother’s Day. I didn’t have to cook, or clean, and I sleep in as late as I wanted in the most comfortable bed ever. Now isn’t that all we really want for Mother’s Day?
Last month my hubby and I took Jayden for a fun little weekend trip to Dallas to visit family. You can see that post here. Before we went to Dallas we made a pit stop to Magnolia Market in Waco. I am a big fan of Fixer Upper and I couldn’t wait to find me something to decorate my office. Last time we went the store was closed so we were only able to see the outside. They are closed Sunday’s so this time we went on Friday. It was a beautiful day when we went and the perfect opportunity for me to take a video tour of an inside look of Magnolia Market. Check out my video tour below.
This past weekend my hubby and I had the opportunity to stay at the Hilton in Arlington. Josh is a huge Texas Rangers baseball fan and comes from a big baseball family. His Uncle is the manager of the Texas Rangers, so we try to make it up to Dallas once a year to visit family and watch the games. It was a fun weekend full of baseball and family, and we couldn’t have wanted anything more from our first road trip with Jayden. We were very thankful for our complimentary stay at the Hilton, and wanted to share our first family stay with you. The Hilton was very convenient for us because it was only minutes away from the ball park. It is also close to Six Flags, and the Dallas Cowboys stadium. You can literally see it from the view outside our window. Below are more pictures of our stay at the Hilton, and a fun video recap of our weekend trip!
This weekend my hubby and I had the privileged to stay the night at the new Westin in the Woodlands. We were so excited to have a little weekend getaway from home and have some much-needed adult time to ourselves. I loved the area, because we were still only an hour away from home and from our little guy. Plus the hotel is brand new and next to all the latest restaurants, bars, and shopping, we could walk anywhere.
For our anniversary weekend my husband and I stayed at the historic beachfront hotel Hotel Galvez & Spa. Over 100 years old, it is still one of the most popular and beautiful hotels in Galveston. I love the old 1900 style and charm in its furniture and decor. When you walk in you feel like you’ve time traveled into an old classic movie. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Our favorite thing about the hotel was the pool and the swim up bar. I love how it has a secluded section just for the adults. I would highly recommend it for vacationing couples. It also has complementary bikes for getting around the Seawall in Galveston, and a ride away from the famous restaurant and tiki bar The Spot. Definitely check it out next time you are in the area! It’s great for a weekend get away!
