Battle For Texas: The Experience in San Antonio

Yesterday was Go Texan Day here in Houston and seeing everyone all over the city dressed in their cowboy/cowgirl getup just reminded me of why I'm so proud to be a native Texan. This state has an abundance of history to appreciate which is why I try to indulge in it every chance I get. It's been almost three years since I last visited San Antonio, I can't wait to go back next month and stop by Battle For Texas: The Experience.

New Year’s Eve In + Sparkling Wines Under $15

Butterflies, since New Year’s Eve is a few hours away let me start by saying...alcohol should only be consumed by adults aged 21 years or older who can do so responsibly AND discharging firearms in the air for fun is not what’s up. With that being said...OMG it’s almost 2018! I’m not complaining one bit, I’m gratefully looking forward to another year. I’m still trying to recover from the Christmas hustle and bustle so I think I’m going to stay in with the kiddo and guy and just take it easy. We’ll probably play a few games, eat some tacos, pop some bottles of sparkling wine and sparkling apple juice and light some fireworks. What are you guys doing for New Year’s Eve?

If you’re thinking about celebrating the new year with some bubbly, here are a few of my favorite inexpensive sparkling wines.

Secret Santa

Hey Butterflies, so in addition to exchanging holiday cards with people from all over the world this year, I also participated in a Secret Santa exchange with a few other bloggers, hosted by fellow Texas blogger Megan Anne of

My secret Santa was Los Angeles blogger Leslie Leon (@_leslieleon_). Leslie sent me a copy of  the self-help book “You are a Badass” by author Jen Sincero, Pretty as a Peach body cream from Bath & Body Works, a micro mini beauty blender, and a Paint The Town Nude lipstick pencil set from Sephora.

Ugly Sweater Inspiration

Ugly Sweaters

Butterflies, so when did wearing ugly Xmas sweaters become a thing? Anyway, my job is having an ugly sweater contest and I’m on the hunt for a sweater since I don’t have enough time to make one. Polyvore is one of the older fashion inspiration apps I use but it never fails me. Check out a few of my favorite ugly sweaters, found at Forever21 and Kohl’s via Polyvore.
