It is hard to believe how quickly the year goes by. Yesterday was April 1 and Easter Sunday! I spent a lovely weekend with the hub’s family (he had to work). On Sunday we went to church at Houston’s First Baptist Church. My older sister-in-law is in the choir and we like the pastor and enjoy the message there. After church we had a delicious late lunch and relaxed until I headed home to see the hubs for a few minutes before his shift. My mother-in-law had planned on making Joanna’s Strawberry Shortcake for dessert, but there were no strawberries to be found! Guess everyone had planned on serving something with strawberries 🙂 I can’t wait to try it out when there isn’t a strawberry shortage haha
Lexi loved every minute of the weekend and is currently snoring as I write this post. My in-laws moved to a new house last summer and it sits on beautiful, wooded acreage so the pups run around enjoying the outdoor. Not only does Lexi come home exhausted, but she is usually a filthy mess and therefore gets a bath. Her least favorite thing to do!
While I was in the area I went to Old Navy to see if I could find anything fun for spring. I don’t typically think of Old Navy as a place to go, but I have gift cards to the Gap Brand stores. For some reason all the bright colors and floral patterns drew me in and I bought some great stuff that really puts me in the mood for spring! Plus they had store wide sales. I mean…I got these flip flops in silver for $1.99! Best part is, the majority of the items I purchased can be worn for work and on the weekends. Double win! I also picked up these shorts in pink and think they are going to get a lot of use this summer. A couple of my purchases are no longer available online, but if you don’t normally shop at Old Navy you may want to give it a try for spring/summer.
I hope you have a really productive week! If you want a fun desktop background, check out the ones from The Every Girl. What’s on your calendar for April? Anything exciting? Tell me about it in the comments. Until next post…xoxo Becca

Hi all! Is it really a Monday again? This post is going out a little late because allergies have gotten the best of me. I’ve taken the day off work to hopefully get better. There is something to be said about listening to your body when you start to feel drained. Wish I would have done that. Nevertheless, the hubs and I had a great weekend together, including Billy Bob’s Texas and a few local restaurant finds.
Saturday morning we made the trip to Fort Worth. One of my friends bought her first home and we wanted to see her and the new place. It’s super cute and has an amazing backyard! I’m looking forward to seeing what all she does with it. Saturday night we went to Billy Bob’s to see Eli Young Band. The hubs and I had seen them earlier this year, but this performance was way better.
I have to say, I was really impressed with Billy Bob’s! It’s “The Worlds Largest Honky Tonk” and they aren’t lying. The best part, NO smoking. Somewhere over the last 5 or 6 years I cannot stand to be in a smoke filled bar so I was super happy about this policy. For safety reasons they also have a new bag/purse policy, so ladies definitely check that out before going.
If you want to grab dinner before Billy Bob’s, we went to Los Vaqueros – Stockyards. Really convenient location as it is across the street. For a late night meal we had bacon covered in pancake batter and deep fried at Ol’ South Pancake House. It’s not on the menu, but you should ask about it 😉 Thank me later lol
I hope everyone has fun plans for the 4th! If these allergies don’t go away you will find me laying on the couch.
Did you check out Friday’s post? I added a grocery list to make your life even easier. Check back this Friday for another week of recipes. Until next post…xoxo Becca
