Minty Fresh

Minty Fresh 2Minty Fresh 5 Minty Fresh 3

You guys! I’m wearing florals for spring! How groundbreaking. I’m also wearing mint, which is a color that I originally rebelled against because I got so sick of seeing it everywhere last year. Is mint out of fashion now? I don’t know. I’m not an expert, you guys. I just happened to buy the dress and cardigan together because they matched perfectly. In fact, I am much more matchy-matchy in today’s outfit than I usually am, and I have to admit that I really like it. It’s fun to try different things sometimes, yes?

Also, I have definitely decided that I LOVE these flats. They took a while to grow on me, but I am now officially a fan.

I’m also back to work today after a blissful (but short) staycation with George’s family. In just three days, we managed to hit up Galveston (the beach, the strand, and Moody Gardens), Houston Museum of Natural Science, The Children’s Museum, and as many delicious local restaurants as we could manage. Everyone had a blast!

Happy Staycation

Ocean 1 Ocean 2

Greetings from my staycation! George’s family is currently in town from Albuquerque, so this week we are exploring all that the Houston area has to offer! It’s always fun to play tourist in your own city because we get to do lots of things we claim we never have time for – like visiting the beach! The kiddos were huge fans of the ocean even though it’s still a little cold to swim. I have been thoroughly enjoying my time away from work, but I definitely wanted to pop in on my blog and give a quick update. Hope you guys are having a great week!

Spring Fling

It’s been consistently warm in Houston the past few weeks, so I think it’s safe to say that spring is here for good! I’ve been trying to get as much use out of my scarves and light jackets as I can before it gets crazy hot though. Why can’t it just stay in these temps forever?

I wore this outfit on Saturday for an entire day of being with my family. We went to lunch for my cousin’s daughter’s birthday, visited my mom, and went to see my brother play a gig. The last photo was taken around 7 pm when my feet were officially exhausted from my heels, hence the shoe change! I love wearing heels but you better believe that I always have a pair of flats nearby just in case.
