Pendry San Diego: Gaslamp’s Chic New Boutique Hotel

Pendry Hotel San Diego Suite

If you were to ask me about my favorite hobby, I would admit it’s hotel-hopping. I love discovering new hotels, soaking in the vibes, enjoying breakfast in bed in hotel robes, and nestling into a home-away-from-home as often as possible! Every hotel has its own story, and I love getting to experience each one. This […]


Why Millennials Should Move To Dallas

Why Millennials Should Move To Dallas

We Said Yes To Dallas, And You Should Too! What many of our readers (and surprisingly a handful of our friends) don’t know about us is that we are actually from Dothan – a small town in south Alabama. Though we’ve been in Dallas for ten years now by way of SMU, we’ve fallen in […]


From Alabama To Texas: Why We Said Yes To Dallas

Flowers Sisters Say Yes To Dallas (1 of 15)

As three sisters born within three and a half years, it’s no surprise we were basically raised as triplets. We’ve been through so much together over the years, and we’re lifelong best friends.

The Biggest Little City In The World: What To Do In Reno, Nevada

Reno City Guide

I don’t know about you, but I had always envisioned Reno as a smaller version of Las Vegas with smoky casinos, all-you-can eat buffets, and an older crowd who lived for the good old days. Why I had this idea of Reno is beyond me, but after my recent trip to the city, I realized […]

While I love exploring new cities, my favorite type of getaway these days is a resort that allows me to relax, unwind, and really enjoy the atmosphere around me. I recently visited The Landing Resort and Spa in Lake Tahoe, and this hotel was the ultimate oasis. The luxurious and serene hotel settled lakeside near […]

As we mentioned in our Southwest Texas road trip itinerary (Marfa, Lajitas, & Big Bend), we’ve been focused on exploring more of what Texas has to offer. We’ve lived in Dallas for about 10 years, and besides the major cities, we haven’t explored much of the state – and as we all know, Texas is […]


Texas Weekend Road Trip Itinerary: Marfa, Lajitas, Big Bend, & Terlingua


Growing up in South Alabama, we were always piling in the car to drive to Destin, Orlando, Sandpiper, New Orleans, Atlanta, etc.  We had so many road trip options, and now after living in Dallas for 10 years, we decided it was time to start exploring our state and see what our road trip options […]


TRAVEL ITINERARY: How To Plan A Weekend In Napa Valley


I am so excited to share this post about my recent trip to Napa, because I think it’s one of the most beautiful places in the county!  I could visit several times a year and never get bored, plus the scenery and weather are always perfect. Besides, who doesn’t love wine tasting!? We recently went for […]


Hotel Spotlight: Hotel Teatro | Denver, Colorado

Hotel Teatro Denver Colorado

When we travel, we love seeking out unique boutique hotels to experience a new side of every city. Discovering hotels with a taste of the city’s charm not only gives a more personalized stay, but it also introduces us to culture and history of the cities we visit. I recently spent a week in Colorado […]


What To Do On A Weekend Road Trip From LAX to Santa Barbara

weekend roadtrip LAX to Santa Barbara

One of the best parts about attending SMU is that our college friends are from ALL over the country. One of our close friends recently got married in Santa Barbara, so we were more than excited for a weekend getaway with all of our friends in California. Though we only had four days for our mini […]
