Hi there and welcome to my cozy little place in the blogosphere! I’m Becca, the lady behind this blog. I am a born and raised Texan who grew up in a small town west of Houston. A town with a population of less than 4,000 and until I was a senior in high school had one stop light and one fast food restaurant (Dairy Queen of course!).
I went to college, double majored in management and marketing, and thought for sure I’d take the corporate world by storm. After working on campus as a student ambassador I realized my passion was helping students succeed in their own collegiate endeavors. So I stayed in higher education.
Along the way I married my college sweetheart (lovingly known here as “the hubs”), got a puppy (Lexi), bought a house, started a blog, sold a house, and traveled to ten destinations (including 4 countries) in just over a year.
I am a person that thrives when my plate is full and under the pressure of deadlines. Being stressed to the max seems to be where I find both thrill and comfort. Before starting this blog in February 2015 I always had a full plate, whether it was work, event planning, grad school, or countless other things that filled my calendar. Then I hit a slump….I was bored and wasn’t utilizing my skills and creativity. Friends and colleagues kept telling me how much potential I had and I needed to find a way to use my abilities more. I also began noticing more and more people were coming to me for advice; ideas on gifts, fitness topics, restaurant recommendations, and recipes. Friends started asking me to go shopping with them to find the perfect outfit, what makeup and beauty products I was using. All these things are little passions of mine and I was glad to do it.
After realizing how stagnant my world had become, I decided to investigate the world of blogging. Believe me, it is scary to put yourself out there, but I reminded myself of all the things people told me and I knew I had more to share with the world.
This little space is my creative hub, the place where I can communicate my passions or maybe spark someone else’s creativity. It’s a place that challenges me to be brave, creative, and step outside my comfort zone.
I’m glad you’ve made it to Lexi & Lady and hope you continue to follow my journey and share in the excitement of life.
