Texas {Travel Tidbits}



We went down to Texas the weekend of August 3rd and dropped Kimberly off at college. Here's some tidbits:


While in Texas; Edwin, Samantha, TaMera and I went to Inks Lake State Park!


Edwin showing TaMera how it's done!


No, these aren't TaMera's only shorts, she just loves wearing them. :)


After Edwin showed TaMera how to fish, he went to work. Isn't technology cool! He was able to work from his phone and iPad at the lake!


If you are ever in the Burnet, Texas area go to Inks Lake State Park! They have free fishing!...which may be another factor why the fish were able to nibble our worm off the hook without biting it (spoiled fish), resulting in us not catching anything. It was a fun experience anyway!

The Dress



A blog I enjoy reading is Sincerely Kinsey. (I love her photography style!) Last week she posted about a dress which is her "go to" dress (here).  I know what mine is!


It's a vintage 1960's "Step N Go" house dress. One of the most comfortable dresses I own, and lowest maintenance. 
I've worn it 13 hours straight to Texas, church, pedicures, shopping and a lot of other places you really don't care about. ;) 


At the store, I was so hesitant to buy it, but thinking I couldn't go wrong with $10; I did. Now I can't imagine not having it my closet! 

dress: scout (vintage) / boots: wet seal (last season) / bracelet: craft show
Walkin' back home, talk to ya soon!

Elkader, Iowa {Travel Tidbits}


Elkader. What a beautiful little town in northeast Iowa. We traveled there to sing, so we didn't get to sightsee. Someday, I want to go on a weekend trip there! They have adorable little shops down main street, various bed & breakfast's and 12 historic sites. They even have a list of great locations to photograph on their website.
Here's a few pictures that I was able to take after the concert:
(Learn how you can make your shorts just like TaMera's HERE)
