Life Lately Vol. 7


It has been an eventful couple of months for me! I have been so busy with school and fun activities with friends I haven't had much time to think about updating the blog. I thought it would be good to share a little life update with you.



October:

 I decided it was time for a chop and I cut a few inches off my hair! I'm still trying to figure out how to style it but I love it.

 McCray and I spent the day at the State Fair of Texas and had so much fun taking pictures and eating good food.

 My family and I went to the pumpkin patch and had fun picking out pumpkins to carve.

 My step dad, James, celebrated his 50th birthday this month and the whole family came and stayed with us for the weekend. Jeanna came home with me for the weekend to come to the party too and we had a great time!
I went to lunch with my friend Lane in our school cafeteria on Halloween and we found a happy surprise when we got there. They had a Halloween cookie decorating station set up for us! 




 We have a pumpkin farm in our town that is open to the public each fall to take fun pictures, play games, and purchase pumpkins. My little sister and I took a girls day and went to the pumpkin farm and had fun in the corn maze, eating fun snacks, and taking pictures.

For Halloween I hadn't planned on doing anything because I had to work but my best friend Jeanna and I were able to attend our school's Halloween party that night and had the best time! I dressed up as a Pink Lady from Grease and Jeanna was Beetle Juice.

November:

 McCray and I have been counting down the days until the Twenty One Pilots concert and it was amazing! We had to bring home all the outfit options from college and spent hours figuring out what to wear, dancing around the bathroom as we got ready, and eating Chick-fil-A of course!

McCray bought us tickets to go see Twenty One Pilots in concert at the new Dickie's Arena in Fort Worth and I don't think we have ever danced so much in our lives. We've been to a lot of concerts together but I definitely think this one was my favorite so far. Misterwives opened for Twenty One Pilots and they were my favorite band in middle school so I definitely turned back into my 12 year old self for a little while and had a blast.

 I thought I would share this picture of Pudge since he hasn't made a blog appearance in a while. My mom brought in all of her outdoor pillows before a storm the other day and put them on the floor near the front door so Pudge decided to make a bed out of them. He is definitely a dog of leisure haha



I haven't been feeling the best recently so I haven't really been eating much but Jeanna took me to the best chicken fried steak place and I cleared my plate in under 10 minutes!!

Last weekend Jeanna and I decided to get away from campus for the weekend and drive out to her lake house for a couple of days. We took the long (or fun) way there so we could stop at all the cute boutiques and shops along the way. It was so relaxing to have the weekend to ourselves with no agenda except for to have fun. She took me to all of her favorite stores in the area and showed me her favorite place to get chicken fried steak too!





Fiction Coffee in downtown Dallas is having their annual Deck the Hall Street Christmas pop up shop right now. Jeanna picked me up after class on Tuesday and took us Fiction Coffee and its so cute! Your drink comes in a Christmas mug and the whole coffee shop is decorated for Christmas. I highly recommend going if you live in Dallas!

My 21st Birthday + XOXO Dining Room Review

Last month I celebrated my 21st birthday at one of the most Instagramable restaurants in Dallas! If I were a restaurant, I'd definitely be XOXO Dining Room. From the pink building, to the picture-worthy garden, to the DJ's music selection, it could not have been a more perfect place to celebrate my 21st. 

TJ Maxx Dressing Room Try On!

I did some more shopping but honestly are you surprised? My Step mom, MB and I went to TJ Maxx in search of some Lilly Pulitzer at a good price and I hit the jackpot! And I took pictures in the dressing room to do another try on! 

5 Tips for Buying Lilly Pulitzer on a Budget

Within the last couple of years I have really fallen in love with Lilly Pulitzer. I love the fun bright prints and how I stand out when I wear them. My Lilly collection isn't very big but I would like to think I own a good amount. I'm always asked how I can afford so many Lilly Pulitzer items and the truth is, I can't. If I were to buy all of my Lilly items in a Lilly Pulitzer store I would be so broke. By now you should know I'm all about finding great deals and that's my secret to affording Lilly. Here are my top 5 tips on getting Lilly Pulitzer items at a great price!

A Day at Crocodile Encounters

In my  Spring Break Recap post  I mentioned going to a petting zoo and that I wanted to do a post about the adventure and that's what I am sharing with you today! The petting zoo was actually an alligator petting zoo that had other animals as well. The place was called Crocodile Encounters and it's near Houston. I must say that it was a bit sketchy (it was in some one's backyard!!) and I was a little bit nervous going in but it was a ton of fun! When you get there you enter through the gift shop where you can buy crocodile food that you can throw to them and lettuce you can feed to all of the other animals so we bought some to feed the animals. We didn't spend but a couple of hours there because this pale girl was quickly burning and I didn't want to be the color of a lobster the next day. And don't forget you can click on the pictures to view them larger!
