    The Wrap Blouse – Inside the Newly Renovated Carr Mansion


    Happy Friday everyone! Who is excited for the weekend? Any fun plans? If you are headed to Galveston then you will want to check out this post.

It is the most gorgeous bead and breakfast with unique rooms with beautiful interior decor. Check out this beautiful mansion and the prettiest wrap blouse you can wear multiple ways this summer.

    Happy Monday ya’ll! It’s been rainy and cold this past weekend but hopefully it will be sunny  warmer weather in our forecast this week. I am already excited for this week because I just found out my hubby and I will be going for a little getaway this weekend. I cannot wait to have some one on one time with the hubs. I think it is so important when you are married with kid(s) to take some time with your love. It really does the body, mind, heart, and soul good.  The last weekend my husband was off we went for a little brunch date after church to a cute brunch spot in Galveston. Josh is not a city person, even though I do love a good brunch in Houston. (Check out my favorite brunch spots here.) But we both love the fresh ocean air, so any chance we get we always go to Galveston. I wore this outfit with this fun pleated skirt for the perfect Sunday Brunch Look. Check out this look below and  make sure to enter in the $850 Nordstrom Giveaway!

    The Spot

    This past weekend for our Anniversary, my husband and I took a little weekend trip to Galveston. It was our first night away from our little man, and we wanted to make sure we enjoyed our kid free trip. Galveston is a great family vacation spot, but it also has some great places for couples, or people wanting to enjoy a more mature environment. One place I would recommend is the Spot. It is a two story venue that has a separate upstairs restaurant and bar area for adults 21 and up. I love the tropical tree house themed bar and it’s seaside view of the beach. It’s located right on the strand and walking distance to the beach. The food menu has the traditional bar foods, burgers, tacos, and my favorite oysters! You can check out the rest of their menu here. The mixed drinks are great too. They all have an island feel, and although they don’t taste strong, watch out they will creep up on you. I could only have one, any more and my husband would have to carry me out of there. Definitely check it out if you are looking for some casual fun, and they have live bands at night. The party never stops at the SPOT.

    Below are details of my outfit:

    Oversized lattice floppy hat
    Kendra Scott Naomi Rose Quartz Double Ring
    Michael Kors Brilliance Statement Pavé Midi X Ring
    Burd Life Aurora Goddess Bracelet
    Sperry Women’s Valencia Espadrille Wedges
