A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes it's nice as a blogger to take a break from the wordy posts and let the photographs do the talking!

My Heart Aches for Aurora, CO

“Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.” ― Brian Jacques, Taggerung

Like most Americans, I was struck with horror when I heard the news of last night's shooting at the Century 16 theater in Aurora, CO during the midnight viewing of "The Dark Knight Rises."

Julie at A Beautiful Day, Taylor at Goings On in Texas, and myself invite you to join us for a fantastic evening filled with wine, art, and much-needed girl time with your fellow Texas Bloggers!

I am SO excited for this upcoming event! On Saturday, September 8th those who register and attend will be treated to wine, appetizers, and a fun art class.

The added bonus of being able to keep the artwork you create on the given canvas serves for perfect bragging rights is too good to pass up!

Week(end) Wraps and Snaps: Family, Fortune, and Fun!

As y'all can imagine, the Fourth of July week and weekend brought lots of activities, photo ops, and memories with it.

This week, I enjoyed a great Fourth of July celebration with my boyfriend, Joe, and friends. You can check out my wild Independence Day adventure here.

On Thursday, I received my Oscar De La Renta scarf and sunglasses that I won during the giveaway from Emily at Life, etc. I absolutely LOVE these two accessories, and have already been playing around, figuring out a bunch of different ways to flaunt them. Thank you, Emily!

DIY: American Flag Nails

For a few years, I worked in two different positions that required me to have either clear or french nails, no variety. Once I moved on to a position where I had more freedom to decorate my fingers as I pleased, I decided to start experimenting with different designs and colors.

With the Fourth of July coming up in just a few days, I decided what better way to get ready for this holiday than to treat my blogging friends with a little American Flag nails tutorial? :-) In just 3 easy steps, you can flaunt this fun design, too!
