A Bit About Me

    Houston blogger styles a blue lace midi dress from Chicwish.

    I’m sharing a bit of a different type of post with y’all today! I’ve been blogging day in and day out for almost FOUR years now. Insane! Sometimes I treat this blog of mine as a diary of sorts, pouring my daily thoughts & life updates into its pages. For those of you who are new here, just stumbled upon Lone Star Looking Glass, or mostly follow along on insta and are popping over … “Hi!!!!!” I thought I’d share a bit “About Me” today with what the blogger community likes to call “Friday Introductions.” (I always love reading other bloggers’ similar posts!) So with that, I’m rounding up 20 fun {and totally random} facts about me that I probably haven’t shared on the blog before!

    Oh and styling this fabbbbbbulous gray dress too! You’ll flip when I tell you the price point!

    Planning a Perfect Summer Picinic


    What’s more quintessential summer than an afternoon picnic in the park? Now that I’m home with Annie every day, I try to avoid having too much of a routine and throw in some sort of fun, out of the ordinary activity, at least once or twice a week. Whether it’s a nature walk, trip to the museum or a picnic in the park, I love getting out and about with my little gal! My good friend Brittany and her daughter Charlotte are always joining us on our adventures too. A few weeks ago we thought we’d spice up our Mother-Daughter date and bring along a bottle of chilled white wine!

    Today I’m sharing a few things to bring along on your next summer picnic & I’m also chatting about this oh-so-delicious Verdejo wine from Rueda!

    4 Must-Haves for Your Next Summer Block Party


    Don’t mind me, just casually snacking on chips & salsa + tacos all by my lonesome! Totally normal behavior for me, actually.

I’m also sharing my secret to serving delicious Tex-Mex in a pinch!

    A Box of Father’s Day Goodies


    Last month I had the opportunity to try out a curated Mother’s Day gift box from Babblebox. When the team asked if I wanted to try their Father’s Day version too, it was a no-brainer! Any excuse to spoil Patrick, I’ll take. He works so hard for us and deserves a treat (both figuratively & literally) as often as possible.  Today I’m chatting about a few goodies that we got to try that make perfect Father’s Day gifts for dad!
