Learn a New Skill with Skillshare: 2 Free Months Promotion

Happy, happy August! Happy Monday! It’s time to recalibrate if you haven’t done so already. I am excited for this month because I’ll be completing my Adobe course with Skillshare.

Third Year Wedding Anniversary: A Staycation in Houston

Third Year Wedding Anniversary: A Staycation in Houston

The staycation I never knew I needed. We spent our third year wedding anniversary in good ole Houston, TX. Our original plans consisted of something totally different, however, who knew how fun it would be to act like tourists in our own city?!? Well, we totally didn’t pretend to be tourists, lol! But you get the point – the change of scenery was very nice 😉

A Hidden Gem: 100% Taquito

A Hidden Gem: 100% Taquito

Happy, happy Monday!!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We spent most of ours at home and ventured out a bit on Saturday. We are still in the process of deciding on an aesthetic for the master bedroom so we went to Pottery Barn to see if anything spoke to us. (Apparently Jose hates the comforter set I purchased last year.) Afterwards, we were craving gorditas, a Mexican food, so we looked up places in the area and ended up finding a hidden gem called 100% Taquito. (By the way, I say hidden because we didn’t know about it until now.) It was 100% authentic Mexican food so I thought to share this little gem on ze blog.

Bloom and Box Flowers in Houston, TX

Bloom and Box Flowers in Houston, TX

Boy, oh boy, does a box of stunning flowers make a girl feel incredibly special.

When Jose showed up with Bloom and Box flowers on our wedding anniversary day, I couldn’t help but to feel super giddy. Its not everyday the man shows up with such flower arrangement. I was elated. As you probably know, I am obsessed with roses. It is my favorite flower. I always keep a dozen of fresh white (or baby pink) roses on my dinner table. They have become a staple in the #sojohome. Anyway, I loved my gift so much you know I had to share deets on the blog.

What I Wore: A Peachy Maxi Dress

Hello, hello frans!!!! Woooooow, life has been a little (ok, a lot) cray lately. As some of you know, I have major goals/deadlines for July so I am trying to navigate through it all without drowning. (Click here for my last life update.) Anyway, I am doing my best to organize the rest of this month’s content so I don’t fall behind anymore. I am kicking it off with this beautiful peachy maxi dress I wore over the weekend that got many compliments while hanging out by the pool.

Fresh Friday Finds: Home Light Fixtures

Fresh Friday Finds: Home Light Fixtures

Happy, happy Friday! Hope you are having an amazing day so far! I am looking forward to catching up on personal stuff this weekend. I have to update the budget, file taxes, read a book for work, blog, etc., etc. Not the most exciting stuff in the world, but what can a girl do?!? I have to admit, if there’s one thing I miss pre-covid is, shooting outfit photos. The hubby has yet to get behind the lens…it has been way TOO long. (I am confident he is enjoying his time away from the camera though, LOL!) Anyway, here’s to another weekend ahead. I hope it’s a fun one for you! Let’s talk light fixtures…
