July Favorites

August 2, 2019

Just like a snap, summer is over. I am back in full swing at work today. My new clothes came in, supplies ready to go, and ready to plan lessons and content for the year. I even created an Amazon wish list for my classroom. Here are the things I couldn’t get enough of in July.

Favorite weekend getaway

For years I have heard about Fredericksburg, but it wasn’t until July I was able to go. Now, it is my favorite weekend getaway spot in Texas. I cannot wait to go back. If you love wine (good wine), jams, German food, historic towns, or cute little hotels and air BnBs, you will love it. Check out my weekend guide for Fredericksburg and plan your trip.

Favorite brunch spot

Last weekend, I met up with Blog and Brunch DFW for brunch at El Bolero. Not only is it right down the street from me, but it’s so stinking adorable. I am obsessed with the walls, colors, and tile. The food was amazing and I cannot wait to share more details with you next week. Stay tuned.

Favorite energy boost

I have always been a fan of Smoothie King, but the new Pineapple Recharge smoothie is my favorite way to get a boost of energy. The mix of pineapple and banana is the perfect hot weather combo. I’ve tried to copy it at home, but the recharge really makes a difference. Get it before it’s over on August 12.

Favorite hair tip

How to Wash Your Hair Only Once a Week

Earlier this week, I confessed that I only wash my hair once a week. If you missed this post, then you missed all of the products I use and tips I shared to keep my hair healthy between washes. You won’t want to miss it.

Favorite patriotic item

With July comes the American July 4th, Indepence Day holiday. This year, I got this tank from Amazon and cannot think of a better one for me. Not only do I love Tom Petty, but I love all the things listed. Get it to wear for Labor Day, or just because.
