Cheers to 2017: Here’s To Something New

This may be my last post for this year 2016. I’m so grateful for what 2016 has brought me and truly excited for what 2017 has to offer. I’ve been blogging for five and a half years now and many bloggers have come and gone…but I’ve stayed. For those of you who have been following my blog from the beginning, THANK YOU! It might be a cliché but words are truly not enough to say how thankful I am for your continued support.

While 2016 has been one of my best years, it didn’t come without challenges. There have been many ups and downs but one of the greatest things that ever happened was getting engaged. It’s the most exciting feeling in the world! 

In 3 weeks, André and I will be starting 2017 as a husband and wife. It’s definitely a HUGE change and I’m hoping and praying for a smooth transition. We’ve been both single for awhile before being in a relationship together but we’ve also been close friends for 5 years. It’s exciting to see how God turned things around to bring us closer together and taking us to another level. … View Post

Holiday Festivities with La Vaquita

Five days till Christmas! Wow. Seriously, just wow. I can’t believe that it’s already that time of the year! It’s only as if Christmas last year just passed by and in only a few more days, we’re already celebrating Christmas 2016. 

I’m sure that many of you, just like myself, are huslin’ and bustlin’. This season, is the most fun and meaningful time for everyone, but it’s also the busiest and can be the most stressful if not put into perspective.

Now, I am not usually the one to be in the kitchen preparing food and cooking meals during the holidays. Maybe that will change when I get married, ha! My mom is an awesome cook and I’m marrying a wonderful cook as well! If you remember, my fiancé helped me with my Food, Fashion, and Football back in October. … View Post

6 Tips for a Stress-Free Holiday

Thanksgiving Day is just a couple of days away, followed by the wonderful Christmas and holiday season. While this is such a great time to get friends and family together, it can also put such a stress to us. The food preparations and gift shopping, not to mention the house cleaning, the traveling (if any) and all the financial things involved. If we’re not aware of this, we will eventually succumb to the stress and not enjoy the time we have with friends and family.

With that being said, here are some practical tips for a stress-free holiday…… View Post

Food, Fashion, and Football

After a year of dating my fiancé and being engaged to him for the past 4 months, I think it is safe to say that I am now hooked on football! So now my passions are food, fashion, and football! My fiancé is the biggest sports fan but football is definitely his favorite. Since the season started, we’ve been doing nothing but watch football games on the weekends. 

This past weekend, instead of our usual of watching the game at a sports club, we decided to do some outdoor grilling with some of our friends. It’s #GameTimeGrilling baby! 

Now, I can’t cook jack! But thanks to my man who knows how to grill and cook! … View Post

Save More With Groupon Coupon

I’m sure that many of you have heard of Groupon and probably many have used them as well. 

For those of you who are not familiar with Groupon, it is basically a website that offers deals on restaurants, spas, health and fitness, travel, daily activities and many others. I’ve always loved finding good deals from this website. One that I think is such a good deal is my quarterly vehicle oil change. I have done about 3 and have only purchased it for about $20 when normally it’s $35. My fiancé and I have also enjoyed some restaurant deals from Groupon. Savings like these do add up.

Summer 2016 Travel Diary: Tapatio Springs

In the beginning of summer this year, my fiancé and I headed out to Boerne, Texas, with some friends, and stayed at Tapatio Springs. Boerne is about 35 minutes NW of San Antonio. We spent the weekend there and had an activities-filled stay! There was so much to do with so little time. 

Tapatio Springs is such a precious gem in the hillcountry. They had a $2 million renovation back in 2015 and the resort is just absolutely beautiful. Loved all the lush greeneries, the springs located sporadically throughout the resort, and the hills. The sunset was  gorgeous as well! We got there an hour or so before sunset on a Friday and we were just able to capture its beauty! Nothing beats Texas sunset and it’s even more captivating when you get to see its beauty in a resort like Tapatio. 

I drove around the resort in my golf cart for about an hour, just enjoying it’s beautiful sceneries. It really doesn’t take an hour to get around the whole resort but I loved seeing the springs, the ducks, and just about everything else! I had such a blast doing that while my fiancé and friends did some tee time. My favorite part was driving through the water over bridges. They had a couple and I felt like a kid that’s never seen something like that before! … View Post

Feasting at Red Lobster’s Crabfest

Y’all…Crabfest is ON at Red Lobster! It’s been awhile since I’ve eaten at Red Lobster and I’ve been meaning to visit it for the longest time, considering that there’s one only 5 minutes away from my house and I always pass by it whenever I go to Pearland Town Center. During Crabfest, Red Lobster serves the most delicious crab menus for a limited time only. So it’s the best way to enjoy different crab dishes!

So my fiancé headed to Red Lobster last Sunday and has our crab feast because we’re just #CrabHungry! 

My fiancé ordered their newest drink called Rogue Wave. It’s a concoction of  Sauza Gold tequila, blue curacao and house margarita mix topped with a splash of ginger ale and served on the rocks in a commemorative Red Lobster mason jar with the Deadliest Catch™ logo. If y’all watch that TV show, you know how crazy and dangerous catching crabs can be! All we get to do is enjoy the crab after the dangerous feat. I love that we got to keep the mason jar with the show’s logo. … View Post
