A Day at Texas Tulips


It's officially spring time here in Dallas and I am thriving in this weather! Last week, before we were asked to self quarantine, McCray and I took a day trip to Pilot Point to visit Texas Tulips and had the best time! If you get the opportunity, I highly recommend going with your friends.

When you walk in the gate there is a station where you can pick out your flower basket- how cute!

What is the price like?
The entry fee at Texas Tulips is $5 per person (the price is the same for kids) and there is a field to park in with free parking.


 Can you pick the tulips?
Yes! You get a basket once you come in the gate and you can pick all the tulips you want. It is $2.50 per tulip and they wrap them before you leave in a tissue paper color of your choice and put them in gel that will preserve them until you get home.




 What facilities are available at the field?
There is a concession stand where you can grab a snack and drink and picnic tables where you can enjoy them. There are also a few restrooms (we were disappointed to discover that they are just porta potties) by the entrance to the field.



When are the open?
They are open Monday-Sunday 10:00 am-8:00 pm from mid February to the end of March/early April.




Are pictures allowed?
Yes pictures of all kinds are allowed. We brought my camera and had so much fun taking pictures all day. However, if you are planning to bring a professional photographer for wedding, senior, or family pictures etc. there is a $25 day pass you must purchase. 



What do you recommend I bring?
Bring a camera! The flowers make the perfect backdrop/prop for fun pictures. I also recommend sunglasses and sunscreen. There was a really nice breeze the whole time we were there but one thing I didn't think about was the sun burn I would suffer once we left, I'm still a little red!


Anything else I should know before going?
The paths through the field are dirt so if you're going right after a storm it will be very muddy so rain boots might be a good idea!


Happy Spring!

Collective Clothing Haul

Today I'm sharing a little collective clothing haul video and talking about all the new clothing items I have picked up in the past month. 

My Favorite Red Boots

 These boots weren't made for walking, especially after the foot surgeries I've had but they are so cute! Honestly they really aren't that uncomfortable, I'm just not used to wearing anything with a heel. I picked these boots up while roaming through Belk last week and had no intention of buying anything while I was there until I spotted these. They are currently about 70% off so they are only $20! For that price I could not pass them up! They come in eight different colors and patterns and they are such a fun statement piece.

Meet My Corgi!

Last weekend was a very exciting one for my family. We welcomed a new little furry friend into our home.

So many retailers have joined in on the trend that I have found skirts for everyone's price range!
