Do you drink beer?

I never did and for the longest it disgusted me! I wasn’t a true fan of beer until I had Live Oak Hefeweizen. It was one of the most delicious beers I have ever had in my life. It has this amazing floral taste mixed in with a splash of deliciousness along with a great after taste too!

I remember when I took this picture. It was on a hot summer day and I was in the pool with Kevin and we decided to just relax and drink some beer in the pool that afternoon. It was so amazing. If anyone ever wants to get me something for my birthday and you don’t know what to get you can ALWAYS get me Live Oak Hefeweizen.

Live Oak is based out of Austin, TX and I can’t wait to go on a trip out there to the brewery! I’ll be in heaven! Oh man.. I want some Live Oak Hefe now.

I know this post was short and simple but I hope you enjoyed reading about my favorite beer!

Until next time!

Understanding Feelings & Emotions.

We’ve all felt emotional at some point in our lives. Feeling emotion is something that happens in everyone’s lives no matter who they are. It sucks sometimes but can also be good for our souls. I have to remind myself that when I’m feeling at my lowest sometimes it does not mean that I should give in to the sadness I might be feeling. Now I’m not saying I ignore my feelings or push them aside because I DO NOT do that. I actually express my emotions wayyyy more than I feel like I should and it usually backfires when I do it too. But regardless of the outcomes that occur, I think expressing how you feel is important in our everyday lives.

We all go through a whole lot. My family, my boyfriend’s family, my friends and their families. I mean WOW.. we all go through so many things each and every day and sometimes it can seem super overwhelming. Trust me, I know. Some of the stuff that I find myself having to deal with isn’t THAT big of a deal but it stresses me out, keeps me from sleeping, gives me a headache, worries me, all kinds of things. I guess the conclusion that I have come to is that we are all human. Being human kinda sucks sometimes but then again I don’t think I would want to live life with no emotion. Grant it I probably wouldn’t know what it would feel like to have emotion and blah-blah-blah but before I go off topic let me just say this:

Having emotions and actually FEELING.. is not bad in any way whatsoever. It’s actually a great thing and I have to embrace all of my feelings and not just the good ones. I guess if this entire blog post sent one single message out to people in the world it would be that having feelings is OKAY! If you ever feel like you’re out of place or wrong for having feelings don’t! You are amazing and you are allowed to have feelings no matter the circumstances.

2017 Vacation!

I got my very first passport & flew to MEXICO!! It was so freaking awesome & I loved every second of it. I’ve got tons of photos to share but first I have to start from the beginning. The day before we left we had planned on leaving super early because we had a connecting flight from here to Mexico City and then from Mexico City to Playa del Carmen. I thought it would be easy and simple, but it wasn’t like that at all. When we left the airport here in the U.S. it was fairly easygoing and we got to Mexico City with no problem. I hadn’t been on a plane in over 10 years so I was a little scared to say the least. My biggest fear was the take off and landing. But once we were in the air I was feeling better. Some of the views were breathtakingly beautiful and I had to snap some pics so everyone could see it for themselves!


Beautiful view over Mexico.

Sky view

Right before we went over the ocean. I love how the sky looks in this picture.

When we finally landed in Mexico City we had to go find our luggage, go through customs, find our terminal & make sure we were at the right place. It was all super hectic and I would NOT want to have to go through it again. Luckily we found our gate, got on the plane headed towards Playa del Carmen and we were off! We got there in no time and once we landed it was just as humid as it is in Houston! I was so excited to get to the resort that we were staying at and see everything! I also forgot to mention the biggest thing about this trip! It was a destination wedding for Kevin’s sister and it was amazing! Here are some pics that I took during our stay there. Enjoy!

I must say this trip was one of my favorites. I would definitely go back if I could!

Until next time!
