Howdy!

To be honest I never actually heard anyone say "howdy" in Texas. But even without the Texas cliches, I still had an awesome time visiting with my family for a few days. The drive was a whopping 15 hrs. long, which explains this greasy hair, no make-up, tired eyes look:



But after a day of recovering, the highlight of my trip took place at the Fort Worth Stockyards. I highly recommend anyone in the area to pay a visit to this wonderful southern attraction.






















My family loves laughing, and nothing made us laugh more during my stay than a couple of good rounds of "Imagine If..."







And we love eating almost as much as we love laughing. My favorite meal: a delicious breakfast of crepes, fruit, hash browns, and coffee.



My visit was relaxing and just what I needed before heading back to school in a couple weeks!

Thanks Marc Jacobs

"What strikes me as so appealing nowadays is seeing the woman as opposed to the outfit." -MARC JACOBS

A while back I had a conversation with my dear friend, Marie, about how I feel like I have no style because I'm so simple when it comes to "fashion." The Marc Jacobs quote from InStyle magazine made me feel a whole lot better.

Also, I've only used a straightener/blow dryer/curling iron on my hair two times in the last three months. It was refreshing to read these quotes from the same InStyle issue from Gossip Girl star, Leighton Meester:

"In my normal life I don't even really wear makeup. I'll just use a little cheek stain, curl my lashes, and put on some lip balm and sunscreen."

"On days off I wash my hair and let it air-dry. I've completely forgotten how to use hot tools."

I guess I'll start embracing my simplicity. :]
