chunky cableknit sweater

I love birthdays and I love when people give me clothes!  My amazing mother-in-law picked out some beautiful things for me so today's outfit is a mix of old and new.  Temperatures have dropped in Texas and I'm already cold (shocker!  I'm either hot or cold!)  This chunky sweater is definitely helping though!  And I'm already finding these denim leggings to be super versatile!  I've had this hat for a few good years now and if you've followed me for awhile, you've definitely seen these flats.  I've linked the new items below :-)

happy birthday marines!

First of all, let me say, that being married to a Marine is probably the most wonderful thing that could have ever happened to me.  Chris and I knew each other in high school, even though we never dated back then.  Knowing him back then and knowing him now, I can tell you that there are many similarities like his sense of humor and being so outgoing and friendly... but now it's like a better version of the goofy high school prankster that I flirted with.

circle seven five: friends-giving picnic + fall layers

It's finally feeling like fall in Texas!!  Weather where we can actually layer and you're still chilly in the shade... and you seek out sunny spots to warm up for a few minutes... omg it's the best!  The rain we've had lately has been rather nasty, especially the tornado that was spun out last Thursday.  But by the weekend (after some more Saturday morning rain) we finally hit a nice point. 

I was a little worried since I got up early on Saturday to start my crock pot and I was watching it pouring rain outside.  But by the time I needed to head to Dallas for our Circle Seven Five Friends-giving Picnic, the sun was popping out!  The ladies of CSF did an amazing job selecting a beautiful park for us and even though the ground was still a little too wet for any of us to want to spread out on blankets, there were enough picnic tables for us to set up our friendly feast.

Omni Hotel Fort Worth: Destination Chile

I recently had a fabulous opportunity to attend a wine and food tasting at the gorgeous Omni Hotel Fort Worth and today I'm sharing my photographs!  I took my friend Amber and we had a blast!  I can't even tell you how many wines we tasted (oops) but everything was delicious.  Not only did they have an Empanada bar set up with multiple choices, they also passed around food while we enjoyed the roaring fire inside the Cast Iron Restaurant.  Foods ranged from a delicious starter soup to mini desserts.  Everyone at the Omni was extremely friendly and it was a great experience!
