    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…

    Fall Booties for Under $30

    Here lately I’ve been seeing posts for “fall booties under $100” or even “under $50!” But $50 is not a good enough deal for me!! Bootie styles change every fall, so if I’m going to be buying new ones, I’m sure as heck not spending a ton of money on something I might not be wearing next year. This may not be your philosophy, but if it is, I’ve rounded up plenty of ADORABLE more affordable pairs for you and me both! *bootie bootie bootie bootie rockin’ everywhere* AM I RIGHT? ALSO don’t forget, if you’re tight on money at the moment and can’t afford your favorites right now, you…

    Waco Weekend Travel Guide

    In my opinion, Waco’s gotta be in the absolute best location. Halfway between Dallas and Austin – only an hour and a half drive either way?? It doesn’t get better than that! And while most people just think of Chip and Joanna when they hear Waco, I’m here to tell you there are SO MANY more activities other than Magnolia Market!! 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…

    Target Fall Decor for Under $20

    I love Target just as much as the next person. But sometimes their stuff is a little pricey! Like, I’m not gonna buy multiple $15 jack-o-lanterns I’m only gonna use for a month. Go ahead, call me cheap! I am cheap! But all of the money I don’t spend on expensive stuff is money I get to spend on travel! And travel is WAY better than stuff. 🙂 So I took a trip to Target today to check out their fall decor and figure out if it’s even possible to get a few things on the low low. Turns out it is!! Everything in this post is under $20, but I’ve…
