One of the best things about blogging in Houston is the huge blogging community we have here. There are so many amazing ladies that I have met over the years through blogging, and I am so thankful for that! It’s kind of crazy how big the blogging scene is in Houston, which I admit can feel overwhelming at times. There are events going on every single week, and with my work schedule it can be really hard to attend things. Sometimes I swear it’s like for every event I miss, I also miss out on meeting ten new bloggers. How are there so many of us?! Luckily for all of us though, more bloggers = more opportunities for friendships and learning from each other.
This past weekend, I attended a blogger picnic hosted by several different blogging groups based in Houston. It was a beautiful day, and I had a great time getting to chat with both old and new friends in the park. We got to chat about our lives, our blogs, and I even left with a few new tips! Unfortunately, I only took a few snaps, so you’ll just have to believe me that there were a ton more people there than my last photo suggests!
If you’d like to check out the blogs of some of my Houston blogger friends, here are the links to the ladies pictured: Jaclyn / Sara / Michelle / Bree / Amber

This past weekend, I made my first ever trip to the annual Greek Festival in Houston. I’ve always wanted to go – I even lived within walking distance from it for a few years – and this year I finally decided that I had to be there! George and I have been missing Greece so much after our honeymoon there this summer that we thought it would be fun to go and reminisce. We took the kiddo and met up with one of his friends from school, and they had lots of fun playing in the kids area and being crazy little boys. I enjoyed perusing the gift shop, which sold lots of similar items you’d find in Greece like homemade soaps, olive oil, jewelry and art. I think George and I would both agree that the food was the best part though! We chowed down on pastitsio, tiropita, spanakopita, keftedes and Greek salad…my only regret is that my stomach didn’t have room for more food! I would have loved a gyro or baklava, but I guess that just means we should go out for Greek food soon!
Can we also talk about the beautiful weather we’ve been having lately? It has finally cooled down enough to where being outside is actually enjoyable. The mornings are cool and breezy, but the afternoons are still warm. I loved getting a chance to re-wear this white dress from our engagement pictures, which I paired with my denim jacket. Honestly, it was still a little too warm outside to have worn a jacket, but I had to wear the Greek colors for Greek Fest, so whatever!

Did you guys get a chance to watch my latest YouTube video yesterday? If not, I’d suggest hopping over there to watch my review of my latest Stitch Fix box. This maxi dress is one of the items that I kept from my fix, and I am SO glad I did! The fit is just so perfect, which I think y’all can probably see much better in these outfit photos as compared to the video. I mean, look how cute it is! I love the green trim on the bottom and the racer back detail – I think those little touches take a basic, easy dress and make it so much more interesting.
Have you guys ever tried Stitch Fix? Do you plan to try it in the near future? I’d love to know your thoughts!

A lot of my blog traffic comes from people Googling questions about Stitch Fix, such as “how much does Stitch Fix cost” or “Stitch Fix quality.” I’ve done several Stitch Fix reviews in the past, which you can view here, but when I got my most recent fix I thought I’d try something different and do my review in the form of a VIDEO! I feel like a video is a much better way to capture the quality and fit of each item. I tried on every piece in the video and talked about what I liked, how things fit, how much each piece cost, what I decided to keep, and how it all works! I hope you enjoy!
