Cactus Wall ?


Okay how adorable is this wall?! I saw this and knew I needed to go find it. ? Linnea & I realized that we had hit our 3 year Friendaversary on Facebook this week, so we set off to find the wall to celebrate.

This fun mural is located a few blocks away from Emporium Pies in the Bishop Arts district of Dallas. In fact, if you are facing Emporium Pies & you look to your right, you can see it. It’s so fun & pretty. Not pictured in this post- the scary armadillo and bunny that were part of the mural. ?

We took fun pictures and then headed to Emporium Pies to obviously eat pie for breakfast. It was a great date.

Oh and I love how comfortable, lightweight, and  cute this chambray midi is! Perfect for a Texas  summer. I’m putting links down below in case you want to be as comfortable as me. They’re on sale, too. For under $20. ? Ugh. I think I may need to get the other one now, too…

XOXO,

Oakland A’s Suite

Grandpa Blair’s 90th birthday party was a huge success! I think he had a lot of fun just seeing his family together. Nick’s family rented out a suite at the A’s vs. Red Sox game. The weather was phenomenal. There was food and family and baseball! It was perfect. I hope my 90th birthday party is that bumping. Hint, hint to my posterity if they read this one day….

I finally found some overalls that fit me and don’t have giant gaping holes all over them! They’re so comfortable and stretchy that I want to wear them wherever I go, so you may see me in them from now on- just warning you. Also, I love my polka dot t-shirt because it goes with any pants or skirts. It’s fun! I’ll post a link down below of the same or similar products.

Anyways, we are back in Dallas now taking on real life. Speaking of, I need to get ready, eat breakfast, and be out the door in 2 minutes, so BYE!!!!

Xoxo,

Hawaii Throwback + Family

So I was looking through my photos on Mother’s Day in order to find a good photo to post, and I did- see my Insta here– but I also found a million other good photos that I need to post on here. One of which are these fun photos from Hawaii. I have the most amazing family and I love every member of it so much.

Since it was just Mother’s Day, I just wanted to say that I love my sweet mother! She is strong and beautiful and courageous. She is persistent in teaching us right from wrong and oh so selfless. I love that blonde lady in the middle.

Also, I love these photos because we got to talk to our little (tall) brother on Mother’s Day. We haven’t seen him in almost two years because he has been out serving a mission. THREE MONTHS FROM NOW, he’ll be home. He is amazing and I can’t wait to laugh with him again.

So yeah, here’s a throwback to Hawaii, and here’s to good family!

XOXO,
