This past weekend my hubby and I went up north to Dallas for a little Valentine’s getaway. It was our first weekend away from the little guy where we were actually more than an hour away! We didn’t want to go too far, but far enough where we could still call it a getaway.;) Dallas was so much fun this past weekend. I read up on some local Dallas blogs and found all the cool hidden gems of Dallas where all the locals go, and we were able to experience a non touristy side of Dallas. We found ourself mostly in Deep Ellum and lower Greenville area of Dallas. We wanted to make sure we ate a local restaurants and went to local bars in the area. It was so much fun, and we even had our first Uber experience. Let’s just say we had such a great experience we are now part of the Uber bandwagon. We loved the fast and easy service, and it’s affordable. It’s a great way to get around when you are traveling.
This past weekend was a great weekend spent with my family on the farm. We were all rooting for the Broncos for the Super Bowl and were so happy they won. Congrats to my favorite QB of all time Peyton Manning and his win. Not only is he a great player but a great role model. I grew up watching Peyton play for the Tennessee Volunteers, to the Colts, and now the Broncos. Now if only the Texans would draft him that would be icing on the cake!;) But now that football season is over, it’s time look forward to Valentines Day and Rodeo Season!
This past weekend I attended my dearest friend, sister, PIC, and fellow Houston Blogger Style the Girl‘s baby shower. I was so excited to share this moment with her and all her dear friends and family to honor her little girl Sofia Everly. It was everything you would imagine a little girl’s baby shower would be, filled with pink, lace, and all things shabby chic. As her Phi Mu sister we were excited to welcome the first legacy in our group of friends. All of our other sisters, including myself, had boys, and we ready to add a girl in the group.
Can you believe it it’s already the end of January? One more month till spring and shorts season, but until then I will be enjoying this nice Houston Winter we are having. One thing I love about Winter to Spring fashion is the transitional colors of neutrals and pastels. You can’t grow wrong with any of those colors this time of year, and it’s a perfect time to start adding brighter colors to your wardrobe.
I can’t believe it’s already a year since we had our baby shower and now in a couple of days we will be having Jayden’s first birthday party. Time sure does fly. I wanted to share some pictures of our beautiful Nautical baby shower we had last year. Our family and friends did a great job throwing us our shower. Continue reading
Who says you can’t pattern mix when it comes to fashion? I am probably the biggest perpetrator when it comes to mixing pattern. I love Aztec prints and though most people like to pair it with solid colors, I loved how it coordinated perfectly with this black and white striped dress. Continue reading
So this past month since we moved into our new home, my husband and I have been exploring our new hobby of antiquing and refurbishing old furniture. I love the idea of making something old new again. One day while out antiquing we decided to stop at a Goodwill to see if we could find an old table or dresser. Though we didn’t find any luck with furniture I did stumble on this beautiful vintage tweed blazer. Continue reading
This week on the Behind the Lens series I had the pleasure of interviewing Loren from Think Elysian. Loren is a native Houstonian, and a photographer, blogger, boutique owner, wife, and mama to her fur baby boxer, Cowboy. I met Loren through a blog collaboration with Think Elysian. Since then we have become friends through our blogging networks here in Houston. She is an amazing photographer and videographer, and I love that she has branched out on her own and started her own boutique and photography business. She is the definition of a girl boss. Check out her interview below and her business tips for future aspiring photographers.
