Hey there everyone! As you guys all probably know, the family and I made a quick trip to Galveston, TX–a teeny tiny island on the Gulf of Mexico. We rented a little beach cottage and took advantage of our (more…)
Hey everyone! We are officially back from our vacation, and boy are we spent! Traveling (road tripping) and vacationing with a 2 month old and toddler is tough work. And I swear, if it wasn’t for my oldest daughter Sisi, the husband and I would be a hot mess! We decided to head out to Galveston, Texas (the (more…)
One of my goals in life is to visit all of the famous national parks in the United States. The summer before last was Yosemite, and this summer it was all about the Grand Canyon. I’ve heard that this natural wonder of the world is one that you must see with your own eyes, and that pictures don’t do it justice–I found this to be 100% true.
Reunited at the Grand Canyon
We always try to meet up with my sisters and family at least once a year. This time, we made a plan to meet at the Grand Canyon. We stayed on the amazing KOA Williams campgrounds in a luxury cabin (I’ve got the deets on this spot coming soon).
So you most likely saw part one to this road trip, where we started our journey in West Texas and continued on to Albuquerque, New Mexico. On this part of the trip, we picked up in New Mexico, and hiked up a volcano and ice cave. We finally made it over to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, which is where my husband and I restated our vows at sunset for our four-year anniversary. The next day, we went rafting inside of the Canyon, off the Colorado River. With the kids, we got to experience a fun safari style car ride at Bearizona with bears and wolves. And finally, on the way back to Texas, we stopped for a quick swim in the Blue Hole in Santa Rosa, New Mexico (click here for the Snapchat videos to these experiences).
Be sure to watch today’s Snapchat diaries so you can get a glimpse of our amazing experience. And… I’ll never leave you hangin’ without style tips. See my pictures below for a little vaca style! You can scroll my ‘Shop the Post’ widget for direct links!

This past weekend I got to host a cheerleading clinic in my hometown of Sacramento, California. However, before getting to work, I got to spend a little leisure time with my dad and step mom in the beautiful city of San Francisco.
Now, if you’ve ever seen this amazing place–you would know that the weather is somewhat different. San Francisco is known for having its own sub climate, and it can be drastically cooler than the surrounding cities. When we arrived, it was 67 degrees–a nice break from the heat in the valley. I also thought this would be the perfect time to test out some of my early fall finds.
My family and I had fun enjoying the sites, like checking out the painted ladies, the Golden Gate Bridge, strolling the botanical gardens, and finally a picnic in Golden Gate Park. Oh, and I couldn’t pass up Chinese food in China Town! For dinner I wore my Christin Michaels black and white color blocked dress, also a Zappos find.
