This weekend we celebrated movies with the Oscars. I had never actually watched the Oscars before, but because bae and I watch so many movies, it seemed fitting that we watch, to see if any of our favorites made it.
I’m gonna go ahead and say that we’re pretty good critics. *winky face*
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that this is my favorite time of the year! Here in Texas, there are rodeos in San Antonio, Austin, Dallas/Ft Worth and Houston. I still haven’t been to the one in DFW, but I’ve been to all the others at least once! And since I live in San Antonio now, I’ve been going to that one for the past couple of years.
This past weekend, I took my family to their first San Antonio rodeo and they loved it! If you’ve never been, let me give you a little break down on what goes on. Each rodeo ticket comes with a concert and entry into the fairgrounds.
This time of year is my absolute favorite! It’s a time for friends and family, happiness and cheer!
Up to just a couple years ago I had never heard of a “Friends-giving’. But I would look at people’s post and think that it was the cutest thing ever! What a great idea to have a pre-Thanksgiving with all your friends! I mean, they basically are your family!
This year was my first time actually partaking in Friendsgiving activities thanks to a couple invitations by Bumble! And I got to bring my BFF!
A few weeks ago, I got invited to a Social Media Night to check out a new place in San Antonio called Class Axe. I looked the place up online and was immediately intimidated. This place was all about axe throwing! Um, what?!? Crazy, I know!
I have very bad balance and hand-eye coordination! So I was very worried that I would hurt myself, or worse, someone else! Nonetheless, I went! What a surprise! Yes there was a lot of axe throwing, but the experience itself was amazing!
Today is Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, the rich traditional Mexican holiday that remembers family and friends who have passed away, with altars (ofrendas), music, food, art, and more. It spans over two days, one day dedicated to the children (All Saints Day) and one for all that have passed (All Souls Day). Dia de los Muertos is not to be mistaken as a “Mexican Halloween”, but rather as cultural celebration of the living and dead. During this time you will see sugar skulls and marigolds all over the place! It’s absolutely stunning!
Have you seen Coco? It revolves around this holiday! To read more about how this tradition got started and how it’s celebrated, check out this article by NatGeo! Read More
