Hey, y’all! As I mentioned in my last post, “Tying the Knott: A Baltimore Wedding,” I recently got to travel to Washington, DC! I went to Baltimore for a friend’s wedding and on the last day in town, we (my friend Leah and I) had some spare time so we made the hour-long trip to DC so that we could explore!
We didn’t actually go inside many places, but we certainly had a great sight-seeing experience!

My friend Monica and her new husband, Kemp Knott, both seem to adhere to the belief that is quoted above! They got married this past weekend and I’m so glad I got to be a part of the experience! It was pretty awesome to witness two people so in love and excited to start a life together!
Along with the wedding, I was happy to take part in some spring adventures! I got to explore local Baltimore neighborhoods and venture off to Washington, DC too! (My next blog post will talk about DC, so keep an eye out!)
Before the Wedding
I traveled to Baltimore, Maryland with my good friend, Leah! We all grew up in Sweeny, a small Texas town, and have kept in touch! Leah made all of our travel arrangements, which was great! She set us up to stay at the Radisson at Cross Keys which turned out to be a nice hotel in a super cute area!

Birthdays are that special time of the year where you get to spoil yourself! You also get to enjoy being spoiled by others, and that can be nice sometimes!
Are you looking for some ideas of how to praise and celebrate your life? I recently traveled to Houston, Texas for my 24th birthday celebration and it was the perfect way to go about praising another year of life!

Sequence of Events
After enjoying a great happy hour with my coworkers last Thursday at Henry’s Tavern in Plano, I rested up and packed to travel to Houston the next day. Friday the 17th (my birthday) rolled around the next morning and I got prepared to head out on my five hour road trip!
My hometown of Sweeny, is about an hour south of Houston and that’s where I went Friday night. Being the small town that it is, finding fun activities often requires traveling a bit more, to the neighboring towns.
My friend Nadia rode down from Dallas with me and we met up with some of my hometown friends for a night of pool playing and country dancing. We went to some of the local places, Rickochet’s and Kicks, and we had such a good time!
