Weekends seem to be so tough for me to keep up with this! I take pictures but never get the time to post!

So instead of back dating a zillion posts thanks to pic stitch here are my pics from over the weekend!

-We went to a great Agricultural charity event and this centerpiece made me laugh!

-The air show was happening this weekend and We enjoyed it from our own backyard!  LOVE the Blue Angels! Such a cool thing to watch!

Hope y’all had a great weekend!

Fort Worth Favorites

Oklahoma holds such a special place in my heart but I really have fallen in love with Fort Worth, TX.  Here are a few of my favorite things! Somethings may not be Fort Worth ONLY but I didn’t experience them until I moved here!

Food

Joe T. Garcias– Their marge will knock you off your feet! Such a great patio too! They do have a limited menu but the food is great!

The Original– Typical mexican food but it is a Fort Worth staple! We have tried most menu items and they have all be yummy!

Lucille’s– LOVE their brunch but their seafood is AMAZING too!

Old South– A fort worth staple open 24 hrs! GERMAN PANCAKES for the WIN!

The Woodshed– Outdoor seating with unique smokehouse choices.

RailHead– Texas BBQ at it’s best!

Winslow’s– Wine and cheese… can’t beat the cool atmosphere!

Hoffbrau- Steak, Steak, Steak… YUMMYY and great prices!

Swiss Pastry Shop– Black Forest Cake is AMAZING… not like a typical one but it will rock your world people.

Entertainment

Billy Bob’s– Country music at its best! Have been to several converts and we love the atmosphere [very intimate]! At an Eli Young Band concert we caught a guitar pick and drum stick!

Movie Tavern– Drinking and movie… unlike the place in Oklahoma the whole theater can drink as long as you are 21! Ticket prices are reasonable too!

Concerts in the Garden– Summer time, music, food and drink.  The FW Symphony has different themes and collaborations so you can attend for the music you love most!

Four Day Weekend– Similar to “Whose Line is it Anyway”, this 4 man group will keep you laughing!

Stock Show and Rodeo– Cowboys know how to have fun! Another great event for the whole family!

Zoo– Fun for the whole family!

Colonial– Caddy races, drinking and great scenery!

Shopping

Neiman Marcus– Top notch designers and several great sales throughout the year!

Apricot Lane– CUTE boutique. I am OBSESSED with their fleece lined leggings.

Health/Beauty

Smart Barre Class– LOVE these classes and can’t wait to see my body change!

Zeeba– Meredith is my girl and helps keep my hair looking fab.

I will continue to add to this list! What Fort Worth Places do you feel I missed or maybe that I should try?

Blogspiration

My first several post have come to me very easily and truthfully without much effort.  I knew soon enough I would have to start creatively thinking and I was excited to let that creative energy in! That is one of the reason I wanted to start a blog!  Well, today I was thinking I need some inspiration on this gloomy Monday!

Then the thought struck…. what if I write about things that inspire me.  Some things that inspire some are serious and some are things that just help me get in the right “mind set.” So here it goes in no particular order!

Yoga/running- Sometimes I am inspired by the motivation it takes for me just to get up and do it but I feel so amazing once I am done.  Such an accomplishment and both activities allow me to clear my head!

run

Oreos- Sometimes you just need some good ol’ junk food. End of story.  Of course their super bowl reaction 2 years ago was priceless [see below.] AND NOW THEY HAVE NEW FLAVORS! I really want to try the cookie dough flavor!

The Beach- The sound, the smell, the feel of the sand…. so many of my senses are evoked and I am so calmed when I am there…. Wish I lived closer but when I get to go it is something I cherish!

Reading-  Most night no matter whether it is a serious book or a trashy romance novel, I come across so many quotes that make me stop and think! I think it is one of the reasons I LOVE reading… I get lost in the stories but they also give me a time to reelect.

read

Netflix binging-  This is similar to reading I am able to get lost and a story but usually something sparks my creative side and I am inspired. I love watching tv shows and movies.  UM AND I CANNOT WAIT FOR HOUSE OF CARDS!

Pinterest-  Love being able to just search for what I am looking for at the time.  Currently, LOVING converse sneakers and wanted some outfit inspiration…. Look for an OOTD post soon with this inspiration:

My friends/family- I love just chatting and catching up with them or relaxing.  One of my FAV blogger friends is Ms.  Casey Walker.  Girls is a technology GENIUS.  She inspires me and teaches me new things most days of the week! Shout out to her listening to all my crazy blog ideas!  VISIT her blog at: Life’s a #Hashtag or her professional blog Casey Lee Walker

Quotes- Sometimes I just love to look up great quotes.  This is especially great is I am having a bad day and need some uplifting thoughts.  These are two of my favorites:

“Change your thoughts and you change your world. ” Norman Vincent Peale

“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”  – Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
