Thirsty for Margaritas?

Hey Ya’ll! Happy Thirsty Thursday!! I’m so pumped today, because I’ve been waiting all week-long to tell you about one of my FAVORITE places to eat and have some margarita’s.  In the small town of  Forney, Texas! But you guys, I’m here to tell you, this is for SURE one of the best places in the land, that I’ve found!

Nestled in the quaint town of Forney, Texas – right outside the Dallas city limits, you will find a cute little mexican restaurant called Rio Lerma. When you walk inside, you won’t be disappointed. I PROMISE! This place has it all. From Hamburgers, to Tex-Mex, to some authentic dishes, and even a pasta section, you’re pallet will be so EXCITED!


You know what’s even better? On Wednesdays, they offer .99 cent margarita’s! Did you hear me correctly? .99 CENT MARGARITA’S! So, if there isn’t another reason to go there and try it out, this would be it! I can promise you, the margaritas don’t disappoint either. You can only have 2, but if you’re like me, 2 is really all you need.


If you’re into Karaoke, they even have that on the weekends.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite local places to eat, drink, and have fun conversations with our friends. The staff is AMAZING. They have known our daughter since she was growing in my belly, and when I call to make reservations on Wednesday’s – they know me by name.

So, if you’re in the area, or visiting the great city of Dallas, Texas – I recommend you take a stroll outside the city limits, and try this place out. I promise, you will be happy you did!

Thirsty Thursday!

If you can’t tell by my posts, I like to relax with a cocktail or 2 occasionally, (ok- I really like wine…like REALLY like wine!) So I decided to start a new segment with this blog featuring some local restaurants, wineries, breweries, or bars with some of my favorite foods, drinks, etc!

I started last week, but, well, life happened and I didn’t get to post anything about the location that I was featuring. So this week we will have a 2 part segment- consider yourselves lucky!

The first place that I want to tell you all about is a brewery that’s close to our house, and oh so tasty! They are fairly new. My husband and I went to their grand opening a couple years ago, and we have been hooked since! Woodcreek Brewing Company is one of the coolest, most relaxed places to visit if you are in Rockwall, Texas. They have a fun atmosphere, this life sized Jenga game, and all of the staff is VERY friendly. You can tour the site, and learn how they make some of their beers. And while you’re there, you might as well taste them! No matter what you have in mind, they have something to cater to anyone’s pallet. Go check them out!

The next place that I want to talk about is Revolver Brewing This place has one of my MOST FAVORITE beers in the planet. I mean, seriously ya’ll- this beer is amazing. Blood and Honey! It’s like a blue moon, but stronger, and even tastier! If you are in Grandbury, Texas you need to go by this place. But if you are local, you can find their beers in almost any grocery store now, too! That makes this mommy VERY HAPPY! I’m telling you- this beer is SOO good, I even got some of my family members on it, and they live in South Carolina! Guess they just have to come visit us more often! 🙂10509646_10101994837596430_3494585407891749935_n

Well, that’s all I have for now. Stay tuned for more places around here, because believe me, I have more to come!

Thanks, and bottoms up!!

Girls and Bows

Before my daughter was born, I swore I wouldn’t be one of those parents that put all those crazy bows on my child.  I don’t know, I’m just not into that fashion trend. We tend to keep things a little more light and airy around our house, and in our wardrobe. So, this sweet friend of mine, who happens to own a bow boutique sent me 2 of her handmade bows. Ya’ll, I’m here to tell you they are GREAT!

First of all, Jamie has been blessed with my small head. That’s a blessing and a curse. The trouble is that no headband really seems to fit her. I have a few that work, but most of them are too big. But the bows from 2ndavenueboutique work great. The elastic on these headbands are PERFECT! They aren’t too snug, nor are they too big. When she moves, they seem to move right with her.

Melissa-the owner of 2ndavenue boutique can do pretty much anything too! As you know, our family is a Clemson Tiger family. (National Champs… WHAT, WHAT!!) Knowing that, Melissa made the CUTEST headband for Jamie! It’s a little bigger than I would have picked out for her, but OH MY GOODNESS, it’s still perfect!


Obviously Jamie loves this bow too. Can’t you tell from her expression?!

There are so many other options that Melissa can do. She’s made bow ties for the men, even a tutu for a wedding! Whatever you can dream of, I’m sure that she can do it. The sky’s the limit with this boutique!


Are these not perfect?! And if you really still don’t believe that she can do anything and everything, look at this cute puppy!


So do me a favor, my family and friends. Go Here and check out her etsy shop! You won’t be sorry that you did. I promise you, I’m not!

Happy shopping, friends! 🙂
