I had the most fun this weekend. I lucked out and got to go to the Blake Shelton Concert at Choctaw Casino with my dear friends and family! It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever gone to. He interacts with the crowd like we’re all at a party in his backyard. He was so engaging, and of course his music is amazing!! I hope he comes back again next year and I can go again!!
I’ve been eyeing this fur-lined puffer coat all winter because I LOVE coats and this one is super cute! It’s down filled and really warm. It finally went on sale, so I got it in white. I hope I get a reason to wear it soon. It doesn’t get extremely cold in winter, but if it even gets slightly cool, I’ll be wearing this out and about!! The fur comes separately, so you can wear it with or without the fur hoodie!
(I probably need to put make up on when I take these pictures, so ignore that for me!! I usually don’t take pictures with my face in them so I don’t have to wear make up!)
I’m not sure why I have been obsessed with these messy bun hats, but I’ve been wanting one for a long time. I finally got one, and I’m in love!! I’ll be wearing this all the time since I wear my hair in a ponytail 99 percent of the time!! This came with a pony tail holder, too.

I am obsessed with coats. This Calvin Klein one is super cute and comfortable. It’s a little heavier than a trench coat, but with the same look. This kept me cozy and warm! I love it on this cold, windy day!!

Those of you who know me, know that I am ALWAYS freezing!! I’ve been wanting a new overcoat in white. I found this one for a really great price!! I can’t wait to get it!!

My husband and I love to go camping, especially in this weather!! Unfortunately, we don’t have the time to go right now, so we did the next best thing last night. We ordered an inexpensive fire pit and a half a cord of wood and set up our mini campsite in our own backyard! It’s the next best thing!! Layla didn’t love it though and even this morning she wouldn’t go near the fire pit and barked at it, so I had to move it and hide it in the garage! (Click on the link to order your own!)
My favorite thing to do in the Austin area is to float the Guadalupe river. I have enjoyed our annual trip with my Dallas friends for the last three years. Last year was the first time we camped out there and we had such a great time, we decided to do it again. My friends got there early and got to float on Friday, too.( I only got to float on Saturday.) We took the five hour excursion on Saturday and I loved every second of it. We still had to walk a little this year, but not nearly as bad as last year during the drought. Luckily, we stay at Mountain Breeze campgrounds, because that part of the river is outside the city limit, so this is a no can ban area and people can drink on the river.
This year proved to be much more eventful than my previous camping trips. This year it decided to rain. Well, rain could be an understatement. It POURED. It was so scary because there was lightning, thunder and buckets of water being poured on us for about four hours straight. The electricity at the campsite went out, which is ok, because I really didn’t need a fan anyway. I was so cold last night. That’s really odd in July!! It didn’t help that I also forgot to bring sheets, pillows, and blankets. Luckily, the tent that I put up by myself didn’t leak too bad. I can’t say the same thing about my friend’s tent. I’ve decided that if it had to rain, I’m glad it happened on the last night. I don’t think I would have made it a second night had it rained the first night.
I set the tent up all by myself and even put the overhang tarp on by myself.
My friends classed it up a bit with the UT chair and yard art. They even had Christmas lights. Next year I’m going to have to do a little better with the decorations.
Had a great day floating on the Guadalupe River.
This was the bottom of my friend’s tent after the rain storm. I think they are going to have to get a new tent.
