I know I’ve been quite hit and miss when it comes to posting since having gotten back from my trip to the Pacific Northwest and I apologize for that. Things have been crazy here, but I am currently trying to get back to some semblance of a normal schedule/routine.
Also, it’s really been feeling like summer here in the Houston area. I’ve already worn my white jeans multiple times and have even been able to get out the bikini as well. Crazy stuff–I know.
One brand I’ve come to love recently is Jude Connally and that is because of the saving grace of the moisture wicking material of many of her pieces (like the dress I am wearing above). If there’s one thing that annoys me, it’s when humidity gets my clothes to attack me and luckily that does not happen when you wear Jude Connally.
Have a wonderful Tuesday, y’all!
Multnomah Falls, located twenty to thirty minutes East of Portland, is definitely something worth seeing if you’re ever in the Portland area. Not only is it a great place for a photo-op but also just a cool place to start your exploration of the Columbia River Gorge.
When I went a few weeks ago, there was still some snow on the ground from the previous snowstorm and it just made it look even more majestic. Unfortunately, though, the snow and ice made it to where we couldn’t really explore on foot as much as I wanted to.
Happy Friday y’all!
To say that my trip up to the Northwest was much needed is an understatement. I am honestly so glad I was able to be up there for close to a week and not only explore Seattle but Portland and Eugene, aka my old stomping grounds, as well.
My first stop was Seattle and almost immediately after arriving I headed to Pike Place Market to check out the area and get some good fish n chips. I knew that this was a place I just had to go to and am glad it was my first place to explore, with being able to see the fishermen throw the fish, scope out all the vendors, and glance at (not touch) the infamous Gum Wall.
I also loved how friendly everyone was! While eating my fish n chips, the server even had me try some fruit from the vendor across the way and it was SOO good!
I spent this past weekend pretending that Fall actually exists in my area by going out to a pumpkin patch west of Houston with one of my girlfriends, because it’s honestly a bit tough to live near the Gulf Coast and see photos of changing leaves galore all over the internet.
Amazingly enough, though, it actually didn’t start getting warm until about noon (lately it’ll be in the 80s come 9 am), so this little outing ended up being super enjoyable. Also, I picked out a real winner and have already started figuring out what I’m going to carve into her. Hint: it’s going to be a based off of a *magical* series that really impacted my childhood and teen years…and still impacts me today haha
Oh! Also, since having gone out to said pumpkin patch there has been talk of not just one but two cool fronts to come our way down here in the Houston area. Eeeek! I’m so excited for *real* fall weather to come.
P.S. Sorry for the iPhone quality photos–I somehow forgot my Nikon at home! :O

Like many cities in New Mexico, Las Cruces is home to some very artistic residents. Whether you’re driving up and down the main drag (Lohman Ave.) or walking around downtown, you’ll generally stumble upon mural after mural after mural.
The city is especially known for its Water Tank Murals, which are painted by Anthony Pennock (and family).

In the South, antiquing is an extremely well versed activity for many people. Some plan out their ventures days/weeks/months in advance, some go antiquing every weekend, and others, like myself, go once every blue moon.
Don’t get me wrong, I love all the little treasures that can be found while browsing through an antique store. It’s just that antiquing can really be such a process, so I find if i’m in the mood for something vintage I go straight to a specialty shop instead.
Red Queen’s Attic Antiques, though, is the perfect spot for someone like me. They had rooms dedicated to separate themes of a sort, which made the store so easy to navigate.
If you’re ever able to travel to the Rosenberg area–be sure to check this place out!
Thursday, Disney announced a charity campaign that benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This charity campaign asks Disney fans to share a picture of themselves with their “ears” on social media with the hashtag #ShareYourEars.
Each time a picture is shared, five dollars (up to $1 million total) will be donated to Make-A-Wish by Disney. The campaign will last until March 14th and there hasn’t been a limit posted as to how many photos you can share to help donate.
Honestly, sharing a photo is one of the easiest and most routine things we do this day and age. And if sharing one photo can lead to helping out such a wonderful cause, why wouldn’t you?
Hope to see some more “ear photos” out there!
Psst… Check out Neil Patrick Harris representing this wonderful charity campaign on behalf of Disney last night during ABC’s Wonderful World of Disney here.
