BEHIND THE CONFETTI: SO CAL WEEKEND WRAP UP

BEHIND THE CONFETTI: SO CAL WEEKEND WRAP UP

Happy Monday, friends! I woke up with a bit of cold this morning and there's no room in my to-do list today for feeling under the weather. So I'm downing Emergen-C and hoping for the best. This past Wednesday I flew to Orange County to meet Trent for our last vacation before the baby arrives! On Wednesday and Thursday I explored solo while he was at the work conference then we were together the rest of the weekend.

GIRLS ROAD TRIP TO MARFA, TEXAS!

GIRLS ROAD TRIP TO MARFA, TEXAS!

Last month myself and two girlfriends made the trek to Marfa (a nine-ish hour drive from Houston!) for a mid-week creative getaway. Michelle, Alyssa and I all work from home and as much fun as it sounds to those without flexibility, it can definitely be lonely and uninspiring at times. After a girls night and a bottle of wine, we rearranged our schedules and planned a road trip out west.

ELLA GOES TO ROUND TOP

ELLA GOES TO ROUND TOP

The Round Top Antique Fair was last week and I was so excited to go this year in collaboration with Hotel Ella for their Ella Goes to Round Top event series. Since Round Top is halfway between Houston and Austin, we skipped the shuttle portion of the trip and met everyone there. But any of my friends in Austin or North Texas, I highly recommend taking the shuttle and making a day of it!

TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN TRAVEL GUIDE

TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN TRAVEL GUIDE

My mom is from Michigan so we have been going up there during the summer as long as I can remember. It's one of my favorite trips and after we went last month I was amazed by how many people told me they were shocked how pretty it was there. Not a lot of Texans head there during the summer and personally I think it's one of the most underrated vacation spots! I've put together a list of some of my favorite spots to eat, drink and explore while you're there.
