How We Wear Our Oliver & Otis

IMG_8335

I love ALL of my Oliver & Otis tops and hats, but one of my favorites is their new “You’re one in a melon” shirt. I’m not sure if it’s because I have a melon of my own growing right now, or if I just love the colors, but it is one that always gets compliments when I am out and about. With their unique and custom-made designs, I always find myself wanting another shirt or hat every time I go to their website.

Not only do they have great items for women, they have a great selection for men too! My husband always loves wearing his “Keep it Reel” shirt when he can.

No More Mosquito Bites

With the Zika Virus in Texas, and me being pregnant, I am very cautious this summer. To make sure I successfully repel those pesky mosquitos, I use Skin So Soft sunscreen and bug spray. It was recommended to me by my OB/GYN, and it is safe on the skin. It also has a nice scent that does not bother this pregnant nose of mine either.

The best thing about this sunscreen is that it also has bug guard in it. So one application blocks the sun and the bugs!

I hope this helps you when protecting you and your love ones this summer. Now go enjoy outside!

Doggie Treats to Beat the Heat

With the Texas heat upon us, I know that pups are suffering too. Besides a water sprinkler and shearing all their fur off, I have a great way too help cool our four-legged friends. Frozen doggie treats! A simple three-ingredient treat that is great for your pets. If your dog is a fan of peanut butter, than you are definitely going to get two paws up for this tasty snack!

I love to give our dog this treat when we are grilling outside, or if we are cooling off with some ice cream or popsicles too. You can use an ice-tray (silicon trays work best), or even make a larger portion by freezing the treat in a disposable cup.

Finding the Perfect Maxi Dress

I have a black maxi dress, and our love is undeniable. I wear it year round, and I have actually bought this same dress twice in the last four years.

I am not sure when the sparks started with this dress, but it is the ultimate traveling outfit, the best beachwear, and a great dress for a day of shopping too. I wear it so many ways, and it can actually be worn as a skirt too!

Now that I am pregnant, I recently purchased the maternity version of this dress too. Just like the first maxi dress, I am in love with this one too! It is so versatile and super comfy too!

Girls Weekend

Recently, I had the opportunity to meet some of my college girlfriends in Fredericksburg, Texas for the weekend. We had the BEST time being together, and when we met up it was like time didn’t pass at all. I loved every minute of it!  

Being pregnant didn’t slow me down one bit either. I kept up with the girls the whole weekend, but Fredericksburg is a hard place to stop exploring. When it was time to enjoy a cocktail, I would splurge with a great dessert or a Shirley Temple (a cherry Sprite).


For meals, we went to Pasta Bella, Burger BurgerFredericksburg Herb Farm, and Silver Creek. Each of these places were very different, but always had something for everyone. 

On Saturday, we shopped around Main Street and then went to Becker Vineyards and Grape Creek Vineyards. Both have a wonderful atmosphere with music. Grape Creek even has a small restaurant for those who need a meal to go with the fine wine.

For evening entertainment, we went to Crossroads to listen to a great cover band and Silver Creek for some great live music.

During the weekend, we stayed at the Inn on Barons Creek. They had great breakfast and a very relaxing environment. It is right off Main Street, allowing you to walk up and down the street all day.

I hope you have the opportunity some day to venture out to Fredericksburg, TX. All of us girls have been there before, so we only visited our favorite places. But for those first-timers, I highly recommend seeing all the sites and even taking a full wine tour! If you are a explorer, the Enchanted Rock is a great place for you too. 

Happy Travels!
