March TidBits

Ahhh Friday, we meet again!

Every year, February – April are very slow for Colton and I. It’s our down time where we spend a lot of time at home in Houston. I know I am really going to miss these past few months once May hits, because I have little-to-no down town after that! 

Any who, here are just a few Tidbits from my March!

Cheese and wine for the season finale of The Bachelor. I always had a feeling that Lauren B was going to win… But after she finally did, I just felt like it wasn’t right…. Did anyone else feel that way??

One of my favorite things about March is The Houston Rodeo. This particular night, we went to see Chris Young and for some reason, prior to going, I couldn’t think of any of his songs. Then when the concert came on, I knew every song he sang – lol!

I made my snap chat  public for you all & so far I love how much I am able to connect with you guys! 🙂 If you aren’t following, make sure you do! I love it because its real, and unfiltered.

One Friday we got to backstage to see Colton’s childhood friend and incredible DJ – Kayzo. It was my first time watching an entire show from backstage and it was super cool!

The rest of that weekend I spent shopping with my sister. (She wants everyone to know she took the picture of me above-lol!)

Then we also got Sunday Brunch at Baba Yega! I wrote about Baba Yega, here! It’s our favorite spot to get boozy on Sunday’s.

That next week I went to a fashion show at Neiman’s with Dede from Dress Up Butter Cup. It was a super cute event put on by Tidbits where I was able meet a lot of fellow bloggers and learn more about this seasons trends!

That Saturday I had a miniature spa day at Fiori Spa.  It’s my favorite place to get a massage in Houston. The grounds there are beautiful, and no matter what you get, big or small, you can use their facilities all day long.

After weeks of talking about it, Colton and I finally tried The Kitchen at The Dunlavy and it was better than I could have ever imagined! This was one the places on my Spring To-Do list! To avoid the long lines, my advice is to get there before 11:00!!

I don’t know about you guys, but I really enjoy Sundays. I like to think of them as my day to recharge, relax, and just have some down time. This particular Sunday was one of those Sundays. We slept in to about 11:00 a.m. (which I never do!), had brunch at Back Street Cafe, went to Sweet Cup off of Montrose for some gelato, Central Market for groceries (lying, we went for the samples), then went home and took Bentley for a long walk before binge watching Orange is the New Black. We didn’t have any real plans, and it was just nice.

This BCBG dress was perfect for it. Actually, its perfect for everything. It’s my throw on and instantly feel  great dress. It’s light weight and has pretty low back to it. I wore it for some of my graduation pictures and a friend wore it in her engagement pictures too! It’s just one of those dresses that you look great in every time you put it on. I linked a few similar dresses that I am just as obsessed with!

Happy Monday!:)

xo,

Lauren
