Doughmaker Doughnuts

Discovered Doughmaker Doughnuts this week. So glad we caught them right before they closed. If you’re a donut fanatic like I am, definitely check them out!

biking to the Astros game

We biked to the Astros game on Thursday to see Drake.

They ended up beating the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 10th inning!

Starbucks Chai Latte

Went into work early on Friday and picked up a chai latte from Starbucks before going into the office.

Car #selfie on the way to dinner on Friday night.

strawberry green tea with rainbow jelly

Strawberry green tea with rainbow jelly from Dulce Tapioca. One of the things I miss the most from home is the boba and flavored teas – none of the places in Houston make it quite like they do back home (although Dulce is one of the few places that comes close).

I love Mediterranean food and we decided to try Aladdin Mediterranean Cuisine on Saturday night.

Happy Father's Day

Wanted to wish my Dad a Happy Father’s Day. I couldn’t fly home to surprise him like I did last year, but I’ll see him in a few weeks when I go back for July 4th (can’t wait!). Love you Dad!


colorful cooking

Trying to eat clean earlier this week.


Last week I purchased a couple of gold-filled cartilage hoop earrings on Etsy from shopKiiNA. I had been looking for small gold hoop earrings for the longest time and was so happy when discovered her shop on Etsy! Be sure to check out her online shop!

wedding dresses at BHLDN


During the week I ended up stumbling upon BHLDN, so I went inside just to look around – gorgeous wedding dresses. Definitely my style.

baked potato from Pappa's BBQ

Probably not the best idea, but I had a loaded baked potato from Pappa’s BBQ for dinner earlier this week. Couldn’t get over how big it was, I think I was only able to eat about half of it.

District 7 Grill EaDo

chicken penne and spinach salad

On Friday night we ate at District 7 Grill in EaDo. They are only open for dinner Wednesday-Friday. I had the Chicken Penne and Spinach Salad and my boyfriend had the Seared Tuna Burger – both were delicious. Hoping they are going to be open on the weekends soon!

On Saturday we went to the Sundance Cinemas to watch Chef – highly recommend it if you are looking for a good film to watch. After the movie we wandered around downtown for a little before heading to Rice University to watch a basketball tournament.

Saturday night we had dinner at benjy’s. I had the Crunchy Chicken – the chicken, potatoes and string beans all had such good flavor. However, we were a little disappointed because the food was good, but the service wasn’t that great.

Adair Kitchen

Lunch at Adair Kitchen – Southwest Chicken Salad, Think Pink Juice and Iced Vanilla Latte. YUM.

fitting room selfie

#fittingroomselfie Needed to pick up some makeup from Macy’s, so that meant a trip to the Galleria.


I have officially been in Houston for 1 year, today. It’s definitely been a roller coaster of a year, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I will say though, that it’s taken about a year for me to be happy living here. It took awhile, but Houston is starting to really grow on me.

With that said, my boyfriend and I went to Free Press Summer Fest this past weekend, and even though I was exhausted this morning – it was so worth it. It was hot as balls and humid as heck, but so much fun (minus the temporary evacuation due to the thunderstorm on Saturday).
