    Happy Monday!

    This month if I’ll be sharing all about our road trip and tips and tricks with traveling with a toddler. It really was such an amazing vacation, and very relaxing to unplug, connect with my family, and enjoy our surroundings. Now to be fair we only have one kiddo and for the most part he was very entertained just being outside and playing in the pool or at the beach. So let’s get back to the road trip, yep 36 hours on the road with our little guy and we survived. Haha I’m being dramatic when I say survived because we had a great time on the road. So what did Jayden do the whole time while we drove with no iPad or iPhone to entertain him? Well let me tell you. Here are some tips and tricks to an iPad/iPhone free road trip with a toddler.

    Texas State Railroad Museum

    Happy Friday ya’ll,

    Father’s day is just around the corner and I wanted to share our Father’s day trip we took last weekend. I know ya’ll want to see more of my family and little guy on the blog, so what better way than today’s post. Since Josh works this weekend we decided to do a fun Father’s day trip with his family this past week, which included four generation of Darnell men. How cool is that? We took Jayden to his first ever steam engine train ride at the Texas State Railroad museum where Josh went when he was a kid. It seriously was such a fun time with the whole family, and memories we will cherish forever. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend going, especially if your little guy is just as obsessed with trains as our little man. Check out the video above and the pictures below!

    TGIF everyone! I hope you are having a great week. I cannot wait to finally spill the beans on this amazing collaboration I am doing this weekend, plus a special travel fashion for under $100 feature.  Last year one of my dear friend decided to do a girl’s trip in Mexico. Having some experience with working with hotels in this country (view previous travel collaborations here) I thought I would give this international resort a shot. I was over the moon when they decided they wanted to work with me! So want to know where I am staying?

    A Couple’s Weekend Travel Guide To Chicago + Giveaway with Betsy Boo’s Boutique

    A Couple's Weekend Travel Guide To Chicago

    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.
