Literally had Chik-Fil-A twice in four days this week. I’m obsessed. For some reason I didn’t really care for it back in California, but since I moved, I see why people love it. (Although I don’t like the sauce – boo, I know).

After work selfie. So happy it was finally the weekend.

El Tiempo Cantina

On Friday, we decided to try the El Tiempo right across the street from The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation. It was pretty good. Can you tell how big my tacos were? I was only able to finish one.

Kim Son buffet

On Saturday, we were craving the buffet at Kim Son on Bellaire, so we decided to drive out there for lunch. So good. If you go to the buffet during the week I believe it’s a lot cheaper. Definitely try it out if you haven’t been.

Fitting room selfie. After lunch on Saturday we decided to drive out to the outlets in Cypress to see if there were any good sales going on. Picked up a couple of things, including this jacket from Calvin Klein.

Common Bond Cafe and Bakery

On Sunday we had brunch at Common Bond Bakery & Cafe in Montrose. It actually just opened last Tuesday, and the buzz must’ve been good because it was pretty packed. We had to wait in line for about 30-40 minutes to order our food. Definitely worth the wait though. The interior and vibe really reminded me of Bottega Louie – especially because of all of the pastries. If you ever visit Los Angeles, Bottega Louie is a must try!

Scoping out the pastries while waiting in line.

grilled cheese and sweet corn chowder

I ended up ordering the grilled cheese and soup – the soup ended up being a sweet corn chowder. DELISH.

pastries to take home

Of course we had to order some pastries to-go!

exterior of Common Bond Cafe and Bakery

Not only is the interior of Common Bond appealing, but so is the outside. Definitely fits right into the neighborhood. We’ll be back soon!


Sparkles Hamburger Spot

On Thursday we were both starving and wanted something quick for dinner so we picked up burgers from Sparkles Hamburger Spot right down the street.

Missing these guys from home


BBVA Stadium

 Last Sunday we went to our first soccer game at the Dynamo BBVA Stadium. I wish the weather was a little better because we were both dripping with sweat once we got to the game, since we walked there. The game ended in a tie, but it was a pretty cool experience and the stadium is really nice. Next time I am definitely sitting under the covered area though.

Margarita! (All the ice had melted by the time we got back to our seats…)

coconut smoothie

 Post workout coconut smoothie from the cafe inside the YMCA. Literally LOVE anything coconut.

crawfish at The Boot

On Friday night we went to The Boot in the Heights for some shrimp and crawfish. The seasoning was really good and we both liked the atmosphere because the seating was outdoors – perfect for the weather right now, but not so sure about during the summer.

morning yoga

Right after morning yoga on Saturday.

fitting room selfie

Fitting room selfie at Urban Outfitters. Ended up buying that sweater and some renewal black cut-offs.

Brunch at Baby Barnabys

Went to Baby Barnaby’s Cafe this morning for brunch, and it was AMAZING. The food was soo good!

outfit of the day

Decided to wear my latest purchases to brunch this morning.

staple pieces

Ended up changing into a t-shirt because it was too hot. A white shirt and jean shorts will always be one of my fav outfits. Simple and classic.
