This weekend we took a great trip to Dallas to watch the Aggies play Arkansas in the Southwest Classic at Jerry World (Cowboy Stadium). The game was SO awesome! It was a nail biter right up until the end. If you didn’t get to see it, you really missed a great one. There was a

On Wednesday, this ole gal turned 21! Okay, okay… 31! Jon Boy and I went to a ridiculously wonderful dinner at The Refuge Steakhouse + Bourbon Bar. We were way too into date night and the yummy food, so I didn’t get many pictures at all. BUT! I can say that the drinks were phenomenal

charcuterie board

On Saturday night, I got to have a girls’ night since Jon Boy was OOT at a bachelor party. I decided it was the perfect time to put together a charcuterie (meat + cheese) board since the ole Johnny Boy is pretty opposed to meals that consist of only finger foods. Not totally his jam.

What a perfect time of year: the end of summer, the beginning of school, the beginning of (slightly) cooler weather, and of course fall decor. Gotta love it! I also love this time of year because of the delicious summer vegetables available at Farmer’s Markets and in the grocery stores. Completely perfect tomatoes + summer

Ritual Houston

Jon Boy and I FINALLY got a date night “in town” after a YEAR of living here in Houston. WHEW! Every single time we’ve scheduled a date night that involved coming in town to a new, trendy restaurant, something terrible would happen. Someone was sick, our dog was dying, someone died in the family, work

When it comes to successfully pulling off delicious, healthy-ish meals during the busy week, it all begins with THE PLAN. It seems like a lot of work, but I promise it makes life so much easier during the week if you’re already planned, stocked, and ready to roll. I did the same thing when I

Cauliflower Mash – Comin’ At Ya! BUT – a little about life lately before I dive into that yummy situation up there… Now that Harvey has left the building, we’re enjoying some pretty fantastic weather down here in Houston.

Transition Time: Summer to Fall

Caslon Utility Vest

Now that fall is here, (and yes, it IS here, buddy), I’m super excited to transition my wardrobe from bikinis + shorts to jeans + layering! By the way, trying to wear jeans in Houston in the summer should be rewarded with a medal of honor. It’s ridiculously difficult to get in them, stay in them,

I’ve been waiting until the light was just right to take a picture of our entryway fall deco. I LOVE this little nook and the chance to decorate a little something extra that people can see when they first walk into our home. I also forgot to take a quick pic of the little bit
