Today, on ze blog, I am sharing our Napa Valley bachelorette party itinerary from this past weekend. In case you don’t follow along on Instagram, I was just in wine country celebrating my little sister who is set to get married next month. (Btw – if you aren’t following me on IG, you should be 😉 I sprinkle life’s moments on stories every now and then.) The trip went by way too fast; I wish we could’ve stayed longer. Nonetheless, we made the best of our circumstances and maximized our time together.Continue reading “Napa Valley Bachelorette Party Itinerary”
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 😉Continue reading “Third Year Wedding Anniversary: A Staycation in Houston”
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.Continue reading “A Hidden Gem: 100% Taquito”
As promised, here is lowdown on my birthday weekend in Fredericksburg, TX (aka the hill country). If you have never gone to Fredericksburg, I am encouraging you to save up for your trip now. It is a BEAUTIFUL hill country escape. I loved it so much, I actually see ourselves living in the hill country in the future. I seriously cannot wait to go back.Continue reading “Birthday Weekend in Fredericksburg, TX”
Happy, happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was quite the adventure. I was actually able to pull off a surprise brunch for the hubby! He just turned 30 and thought it was a milestone birthday that required a lovely brunch with his favorite people. (I was so anxious about this party…like worst than my wedding day! I’ll save this story for another time.) Anyway, my sister and brother-in-law were also visiting from Dallas so we drove to Galveston yesterday and enjoyed a beautiful day by the ocean. Oh man how I missed the beach. I know it isn’t the prettiest beach on earth, but honestly, I don’t care. I think it’s still lovely to lay by the beach and enjoy the sound of the waves.Continue reading “A Quick Getaway: Galveston Island”
I’ve visited NYC five times in the last few years (three times this year) to feel comfortable enough to compile a list of my favorite things to do and places to eat. I am actually in NYC as I type this blog post so that’s pretty cool.
Praise The Lord, hallelujah!
Happy hump day!
Hope you are having a great day! I know I have been a little out of touch lately because I decided to (partially) unplug from social media during our anniversary trip…and then a few days after it ended.
It was sooo nice but happy to be back!
If you have an appreciation for nature’s natural beauty, you must add Utah to your travel list. This beautiful state has so much to offer! The first time I got a taste of the snowy mountains was when I visited Colorado for the first time in January 2015. After leaving Colorado, I felt like I belonged there. The truth is, nature has me wrapped around its beauty and Utah did not disappoint in this department. Let’s jump into the highlights!
This was my third time visiting New York City (NYC), and I must be honest, I still feel like I have an entire list of things to do next time I visit! There is SO much to see and do, it can be overwhelming. I do believe there is a timeframe (or a season) for certain activities. For example, if you go around Christmastime, you must do Christmas-themed activities. Or let’s say you visit in the fall, you should probably rent a bike and cross over the Brooklyn Bridge. Anyway, for today’s blog post, I am giving you ideas on what to do next time you visit the Big Apple in the spring/summer.
It has been a week since I drove up to Dallas to visit the Texas-Tulips fields with my sisters and baby niece. It was a girls day filled fun and much needed homemade ice cream from my college town, Denton, TX.
