• Weekend on the Bay and in Galveston

    Hi, y’all! I hope you had an amazing weekend! We spent the weekend with friends on the bay and it was amazing to hang out by the water with a Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® (literally my new favorite summer beer) in my hand. My Summersalt swimsuit arrived just in time for the weekend and it was so cute. I was nervous about the one-strap style since that doesn’t always work for a larger chest and I give it an 8/10 after wearing it all day. The swimsuit doesn’t get a perfect score because I had to readjust multiple times… and it also came down a bit when I dove into the…

  • BOZEMAN, MT // Ski Trip Packing List, Where to Visit and What I Packed!

    Hi, y’all! Bryan and I recently went to Bozeman, Montana for a KIDS-FREE trip and had a the best time. We skied. We après-skied. We toured. We ate. Like I said – WE HAD THE BEST TIME!! Our group was HUGE so we had to split up between a couple houses. Some of us stayed in a cute airbnb around the corner from our friends’ home. It was a 3-bedroom townhouse that sleeps 7 and wasn’t far from any place we wanted to go. This is the link to the airbnb listing in case you’re interested in visiting! Most of the trip was spent on the slopes but we did…

  • Weekend Getaway in Round Top, TX

    WHAT I PACKED Hi, y’all! A couple weekends ago Bryan and I drove to Round Top, TX for a much needed weekend getaway. I won a 2-night stay for myself and a guest from a giveaway hosted by Katy Moms’ Network and The Frenchie… back in NOVEMBER! Y’all, I was so damn excited and knew that my future self would need this 😉 We took the scenic drive and loved it.

  • Ski Weekend in Breckenridge, CO

    Hi, y’all! I’m so happy to finally share about our ski weekend to Breckenridge, Colorado! We went a couple weekends ago but came home to #Snowpocolypse2021 and it’s taken a bit to get back to normal… whatever that is these days! 😆 This ski trip has been on the books since OCTOBER… so it’s been a few months coming! That also gave me time to prepare my mama heart for leaving both of my babies for 4 days/3 nights. At the time of the trip Kaiser was almost 5 months and Emmett was just over 22 months – aka BABIES! Leading up to the trip I wasn’t really nervous but…

    Weekend at South Padre Island + Packing List

    Hi, y’all! Last weekend we took Emmett to South Padre Island to celebrate the 4th and she loved the beach. Watching her play and have the best time makes my forehead sunburn worth it 😉 Here is how COVID-19 affected our stay, where we stayed, what the beach was like with a toddler and a packing list of what we actually used. HOW COVID-19 AFFECTED OUR STAY COVID-19 actually didn’t affect us too much. It’s mandated in Texas to wear a mask when you go into public businesses so we masked up at our stops during the 6-hour drive. That’s not a problem at all – I just wish I’d…

  • Weekend in Horseshoe Bay ft. the Most Flattering Dress

    Hi, y’all! Last weekend our family traveled to Horseshoe Bay (only about 3-3.5 hours from Houston) for a wedding but, honestly, it was more like a mini vacation for the guests. Bryan was pretty much MIA golfing most of the days but Emmett and I were able to soak up some sun by the pool and relaaaaaax. Well, I relaxed about as much as possible when you’re with a baby lol Here’s more about where we stayed, what I wore and a few wedding pics! WHERE WE STAYED Let me start by saying that Horseshoe Bay and the surrounding area is BEAUTIFUL! As we were driving up, I couldn’t stop…
