In 28 days I will be boarding a plane to LAX and heading back to California for the second time in 5 years. The reason? I'm going back to Disneyland! *cue the confetti and excited screaming*
If you ever asked me if I would stay in Corpus Christi, TX after I get married or for a career, I would say no, very enthusiastically. Having grown up in CC, staying in town for college and now after I graduated, I feel like I am being suffocated sometimes. But compared to some of my friends, I got sort of lucky with hometowns.
Most Halloween weekends (in which the actual holiday falls on a weekday) there are two spectrums-either stay inside and watch Halloween movies or go out and party. From there, you decide on the sub-categories: what movies to watch, what snacks, etc or are you staying in town and traveling to friends to party, what are you dressing up as, etc.
For Kaci and I, we found a happy middle when we booked our trip to New Orleans, Louisiana for the last weekend of October. What possessed me, the girl who would happily stay in all weekend to watch Netflix or cook with her roommates, to actually go to the party city in America? Simple.
This past weekend Bri and I packed our bags and headed up to Beaumont to visit Kaci. Kaci recently moved up to Beaumont for her “big girl” job at the beginning of June, so we thought a road trip to go see her would be the perfect mini-vacation. And even though all three of us are now covered in mosquito bites, it was still a pretty fantastic weekend.
On June 10th, I got the chance to finally meet people I had been talking with for 6 and a half months through texts and group messages. And all this was possible because of some amazing shoes!
A couple of weekends found me traveling to San Antonio, Texas with Bri for a weekend full of fun and adventure.

As of December 27, 2016 I have both of my best friends in the same state as me! Kelsey lives in Nevada and we have been friends for almost 10 years, but we've only hung out in person twice prior to this visit. Once when we were 18 and I flew to Nevada to then drive to California with her, her sister and her mom to go to Disney and then this April for my 21st birthday when we both flew to Vegas (which you can read about here).
Now though, Kelsey has finally come to Texas for the first time EVER. So Felicia and I were both excited to show her our hometown and our great state.
On the sixth day of Blogmas, my true love gave to me...

5 Hooooolllliiidddaaayyy Movies
A time traveling machine,

A candle that was catered just for me
