Kirsten over at Triple Max Tons was the first blogger I "met" when I came onto the scene, she helped design my blog site. Her amazing website skilled coupled with the idea by Megan from Greetings From Texas! came up with this amazing way for Houston bloggers to connect. I can't wait to attend and finally meet some of my fellow bloggers!

Birthday Celebrations

This past Sunday was my 24th birthday...I know, I know...I'm getting so old! The day before my Great Aunt Dagi came to visit. It was so great seeing her and hearing old family stories while flipping through photo albums. I got to see my dad as a baby with super curly hair! That evening we all went out to dinner to celebrate her being here and my birthday. We went to Sorrel Urban Bistro and it was amazing! The food is all locally sourced and the menu changes daily. My uncle Matt did a great job picking this place out. Afterwards I went out to the bars with my friends to celebrate in my amazing birthday dress.

Now let me just tell you about this dress...I got compliments on it all night because it was just THE perfect birthday dress. When I walked into New for the Night looking for a dress Shireen asked me what my plans were. I told her just dinner with the family and then out with my friends, but I wanted something fun and flashy. This dress was the first one we picked out. Not appropriate at all for either of those two things, but who cares, it's my birthday! And the best part was I was renting it so I wasn't spending a fortune on a dress I was only going to wear once. The whole concept of renting a dress is awesome and I don't think enough people know about it. I like this store because I can come in and try on the dresses before I rent them and not have to worry if what I ordered online is going to fit or look right. Their prices are really reasonable and I even got a coupon for $20 off since it was my birthday. This was my first dress rental from here but I'm definitely going back!

Father's Day

I hope everyone had a great Father's Day spent with their fathers or father figures. Although I wasn't able to spend it with my dad who lives in Orange County I was able to celebrate with my uncles. It was their first father's day with Baby E. We took a day trip out to lake Livingston and it was beautiful! The lake is huge and it definitely has us all dreaming of a house on the lake one day.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Pleasure Pier

No the name of this post isn't something sexual, but with a name like that I'm sure that's what you're thinking. The Pleasure Pier just opened in Galveston and I thought I would take my brother while he was visiting. It was like an updated Kemah boardwalk and was really fun! Although I didn't like the fact that you had to pay to just get on the boardwalk or even the ridiculously humid 100 degree weather. The day started out hot, but fun as my brother and I went on a few rides. However, on one of the roller coasters I sadly lost my phone. Silly me left it in my pocket. Oh well, looking at the cup half full I got an early birthday present from my amazing uncles which turned out to be an iphone! Yay for finally jumping on that bandwagon. It's away being unlocked at the moment, but hopefully I'll be able to get it back soon and post a whole lot more photos (because we all know I'm notorious for leaving the camera at home during prime photo opportunities)

Enough of my rant about the Pleasure Pier and the loss of my phone...I hope you enjoy these photos shot by my amazing uncle!

Father's Day with GaybyBoom

Wednesday morning we had a Fox reporter do a follow up story with my uncles who write the GaybyBoom blog. They had done a story on them when they were first going to have a baby and this time they wanted to do a Father's Day follow up. I had to take my brother to the airport super early so I was up at 5am. I wasn't sure if they would film me or not so I just threw this outfit together. They took a few shots with me as well as did an interview. To my surprise I was actually in the piece that aired!

Take a look at the video, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy being apart of this modern family.

The Heights

I went to the Heights with my friend Ben for some lunch, shopping and of course a photo shoot. He's so good with a camera I couldn't resist taking advantage. Shopping in the Heights is full of these cool vintage and antique stores, and a few funky modern ones as well. We went into a ton of them, tried on some vintage hats, and looked at cameras for him. It was so nice to spend a day outside enjoying the weather and getting some shopping done as well. Enjoy!
