    Know Before You Go: Guadalupe Peak and Carlsbad Caverns

    This past weekend, three friends and I took a road trip to West Texas. While we had originally planned to visit the caverns on Friday, we got there too late and decided to go on Sunday instead! We trucked on to Guadalupe Mountains National Park, where we hoped to find an open campsite for the night. But alas, we were out of luck once again. Fortunately for us, a nice park ranger suggested a spot of public land just across the New Mexico border, where we ended up staying for the night. We got up around 6:30 on Saturday morning, packed up, and traveled back south to the Guadalupe Peak…

    Weekend Camping/Hiking Packing List

    I am getting SUPER excited because this time tomorrow, I’ll be in New Mexico!! Or maybe in Texas. I’m not completely sure of the timeline. We leave at 6 a.m. tomorrow for Carlsbad, NM to visit the Carlsbad Caverns! After we’ve had our fill there, we’re headed to Guadalupe Mountains National Park for the rest of the weekend. Hiking, camping, and hopefully some gorgeous fall foliage are all in our plans. 🙂 Since I’m sure I’m not the only one wanting to take a trip like this during the most wonderful season of the year, I thought I would let everyone in on what I’m bringing! I know I can’t…

    Waco Weekend Travel Guide

Keep reading if you wanna think outside the box during your visit to Wacotown. 😉 See a movie at the Hippodrome It started out as a vaudeville theater in 1914, and it evolves as time goes on! Now it’s an incredible concert venue, restaurant, and movie theater! And if…

    The Ultimate Fall Bucket List

    Every year, fall comes. And every year, when it starts getting too cold to spend more than a few minutes outside and when the leaves have completely deserted their branches, I have REGRETS. Why didn’t I do all the things I had planned?? Why did I spend all those hours sitting inside, watching Gilmore Girls for the third time?! Laziness, my friend. We all fall victim to it at one point or another. SO. I decided to make a “fall bucket list” with all of the the things I want to do before winter! Obviously, food is a priority here. But fortunately for my waistline, there are plenty of fall-y…

    A Weekend Guide to Dallas Eats

    Planning a trip to Dallas soon? Or are you a local just looking to try new places? Whatever the case, I’ve got you covered! Having lived there for two years and visited often after that, I feel I have a pretty good “taste” for the local grub. HA. I crack myself up. Anyway. I picked only my very favorites for this list (I have so many favorites!) so that you wouldn’t have TOO many choices. Sometimes that’s worse than not having enough! I’ve sorted them into categories so you can get the gist of what each restaurant has to offer. Here goes! Brunch (Lets be real. The most important food…
