Extended Stay America Houston - NASA - Bay

Hey Butterflies! I recently went on a summer weekend getaway with my guy and the kiddo to Galvston Island. The island is about a hour and a half away from us so we decided to get a hotel room somewhere in the area so that we could have more time on the island while visiting Schlitterbahn and avoid having to rush. Hotels on the island are usually more expensive then those in surrounding cities; we normally stay in League City whenever we're heading to Galveston but this time we spent the night in Webster, Tx at the Extended Stay America Houston - NASA - Bay

We booked the "one bedroom suite w/ two queen beds" and had a pleasant stay. I saw that this location was recently renovated so I couldn't wait to see how this location compared to other Extended Stay hotels I've stayed at in the past. I thought the front desk and lobby areas were gorgeous compared to similar hotels and it only took about two minutes to get checked in. I thought the astronaut covering the elevator door was the coolest thing being that the hotel is minutes away from the space center.

31 Birthday Freebies & Discounts

Hey Butterflies! It's Cancer Season and today is my BIRTHDAY!!!!! If you've had the pleasure of knowing a Cancer then you problem already know most Cancerians enjoy their space and can be very introverted and emotional at times but are usually the most thoughtful and caring people you'll probably ever meet. According the experts over at Wikipedia (lol), cancerians are ruled by sensation and feelings and they tend to go by their own intuition. I live this and totally agree so in honor of my birthday and cancer season in general I'm sharing with you some of my favorite birthday freebies and discounts.

OOTD: No Bad Vibes ✌🏽️❤️😃

Hey Butterflies! As you probably noticed with most of my sets, the color scheme is black; black is my favorite color as well as my happy color. With everything that's been going on all over the world, especially these last couple of days I thought I'd send some positive vibes out. I came across a John Lennon quote that kind of inspired this set. "We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practiced in broad daylight." I was taught to be kind to everyone no matter how much we may differ, not everyone is raised the same and I get that but wouldn't life be SO MUCH easier if we all JUST LIVE and LET LIVE? Anyway that's my two cents on current events...hope you like the set! Check out product details below.

Quick Budget-Friendly Chicken & Vegetable Lo Mein

Hāi Butterflies! I don't know anyone that enjoys Lo Mein as much as I do, it's the perfect nutritional mixture of protein, vegetables, and carbohydrates when done right. My love for lo mein, saving money and easy recipes inspired me to share a quick version of the Chinese meal that I make when I'm hungry and pressed for time. Prepare using the ingredients below; sauté onion, garlic, and bell pepper on medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Next, add chicken breast and tomato, season with black pepper and cayenne pepper and continue sautéing for another 2-3 minutes, then add broth and toss in the veggies and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes or until tender. Prepare noodles as directed on packaging, adding the pre-package seasoning of only one. Finally, add noodles and a tablespoon of sriracha or more seasoning if your taste buds require it. Enjoy!

Visiting Texas: Schlitterbahn Water Park Galveston TX

UPDATE: Hey Butterflies! So you know how I posted about not visiting a water-park since 2001? Well, I finally went to Schlitterbahn and had an awesome time. We originally tried to visit the park the second weekend in June, we got all the way up to guest services and was told that due to the lightning (it was raining) most of the rides/pools were closed and that the park would be closing in two hours so we decided to just leave and try it again another day which we did. We tried it again the weekend before last while on our annual Texas Summer Road Trip and this time we got to the park a little earlier, it opened at 10am but we didn't get there until about 1pm and there was no where to park. After driving around the parking lot for like 20 minutes we finally were able to wait on a car leaving to get a spot.
