SUMMER BUCKET LIST

BucketList

If you could go anywhere in the world with your 4 best friends, where would it be? If someone said pack your bags and hop on a plane tomorrow, what city would you choose?

Malibu sent 5 friends around Europe for 40 days to experience their Best Summer Ever. Thanks to my friends at Malibu, they are fulfilling my best summer ever.  While I would love to travel the world with my 5 best friends; this summer was already full of traveling so this September my bucket list involves relaxing, spoiling myself, and spending time with my fiancé.  So for the next couple weeks, I will be exploring new areas in Dallas to complete my summer bucket list.

You can follow along on Instagram for the next few weeks to see how I checked off the end of my summer bucket list.

LIFE, LOSS, AND BEING REAL

Loss

I am at a complete loss. A loss for words. A loss for thoughts.

While I would have loved to share my Labor Day sale round up with all of you, it just did not feel right today. This blog has always been  a space where I share my life. While most of the time the content is materialistic, sunshine and rainbows side of my life; you all know, that is not how life really is.  This weekend I lost someone very near and dear to my heart. I have been so fortunate for 26 years of my life to not be surrounded by sickness or death. On Saturday, everything changed.

He was the one who taught me about selflessness, compassion and style, also how to make the most perfect nachos, the daffy duck voice,  and that it is always okay to eat ice cream in bed. He was my second dad, my champion, and always the first to tell me how proud he was of what I have become. So today, I am still at a loss for words or feelings.  Just remember today that life is precious. So hug a little tighter, love a little deeper, and fall a little harder because you have nothing to lose.

In honor of my beloved, Uncle Greg. You will forever be in my heart. I love you.

THE MIA STORY

lately8-24_3 lately8-24_4 lately8-24_5 lately8-24_2lately8-24_6 lately8-24_9

You may have noticed I took a little unexpected break from the blog for the last two weeks. This was never my intention and I had this weird guilt as the days went by and I didn’t post anything. The real story was that my day job took us on quite the interesting adventure. Many of you probably don’t know what I do, so here’s the quick story.  I’ll  be back Monday with regular content and some exciting news!

Two Thursdays ago, my fiancé and I hopped on a plane and headed to Scottsdale for a quick weekend getaway (or so we thought) to celebrate my birthday. We had a great weekend and then got news we would be working on a quick 5 day project in a small town in Mississippi. So if you don’t know, Patrick and I work together for an oil and gas company, a job I absolutely love and everyday am grateful to have found something that I like to do and also have the flexibility to work from home, blog, and still have a life.

We arrived is Mississippi 2 Sundays ago, for what we thought would be a quick and painless trip with a few pitstops to Oxford and New Orleans on the way home, but we were SOO wrong. We worked until midnight every night and on top of everything we had no internet the entire time (hence no blogging). After a few long nights, the project was extended an entire week.  More work, late nights and few pieces of fried chicken later, we finally completed our project and made it to New Orleans for a night and then back to Dallas for the weekend, just in time for my bestie to come visit me. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see our shenanigans around town.  Let’s just say August turned into quite the whirlwind.
