Stand Up Paddle Board Is What’ SUP! 

Being from Michigan, the lake life is in my blood. This girl loves the water! Maybe it’s also because I’m a summer baby or a Cancer? That’s a water sign right? Anyway, I really love Dallas and the city life but dang do I miss those lakes. And for those Texas folks reading this saying that there are lakes here, well you haven’t seen a real lake until you’ve seen the Great Lakes. In your spare time, go Google Torch Lake in Michigan. I’m talking turquoise waters so clear you can see the bottom or even ship wrecks! Or Google Silver Lake and their sand dunes. I think they’re suppose to be the second largest sand dunes next to the Sahara, but don’t quote me on that. With all that being said, I was craving some lake activities and my good freind Britney from Florida was on the same page and hooked up a SUP deal on Lake Hubbard.   
    

Texas experienced some serious rainfall this spring and all of the dried up areas now have filled up for the first time in like twenty years! It was kinda erie seeing these dead trees in the middle of the lake. 
And of course here’s me showing off my athleticism and balance. Surprisinly, no one fell in!

    
  
Brunch with a view!  

Creepiest tree house…

    
 
The girls busting out there yoga knowledge and killing it on the paddle boards. 
All in all, it was a great day with friends and the Hubbs. Got to see a new sweet lake close to Dallas, bronzed up a bit and got in my workout for the weekend.

The last of my 20’s!

Well this is it. I turned twenty freakin’ nine. Eeeeek! I feel like I should be freaking out about getting older and getting closer to thirty but I’m actually really excited. I love getting older! Learning more about myself, growing my relationship with husband, seeing new places and trying new things.


  
  
  
  
  

Red, White and Blue Bonnets

Happy Birthday, America! We had plans to celebrate our first 4th of July at our new home, Texas style! I was really looking forward to relaxing on our rooftop with friends and drinks in hand while watching all the fireworks. With that goal in mind I had 2 days to bust ass and get the roof top into shape. I’ve been wanting to do big things up there but time and weather has not been on my side this summer. I’ll post before and after pics later but we managed to complete it as the guests came up. image image

Part of bustin’ ass was painting and water proofing this bar I bought for resale for only $50!!! The worst part was hauling it up 3 staircases which included a spiral outdoor staircase. I quickly put together everything red, white and blue that I owned including a burlap flag garland I made last year and love.

We got to watch a lovely sunset while playing an intense game of giant Jenga with freinds.  Saw about 20 different firework displays from every direction and found out little Miss Pepper Potts is not a fan of the big bangs. All in all, great little evening!

Bisous,
