Setting goals is essential for thinking about your ideal future, and for motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality. The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You'll also quickly spot the distractions that can, so easily, lead you astray. I have also decided on my WORD OF THE YEAR!!! Every year, I pick a word that will be my guide for my life. This year, my word is JOY. I really want to focus more on doing things and taking opportunities that make ME happy. This past year was a little tough for me and looking back I realized that I wasn't happy for most of it. I feel that if I look at every opportunity that is laid before me and ask myself "Will this bring me JOY?" and "Will I look back and be happy I did this?" And then if I stick to bringing JOY into my life everything else will fall into place.
I was always one of those people that would judge other people who loved their pets like humans. The first day I met Chapo when I picked him up, I could have sworn I made the worst mistake of my life. He kept whining on the drive back to Austin because I had him in a little crate in the back. Halfway home, I pulled over to the side and took him out of the crate. I placed him on my lap and started driving again. He cuddled up and put his little head in this little "cave" spot in between my arm and the seat belt. My heart melted and I fell in love.

I have SO MANY amazing family and friends in my life. And everyone that I personally know has been super positive throughout this whole mess and they have shown me what it really means to be #TexasStrong. I wanted to come up with a cocktail recipe that is super fast and easy to make in honor of all the strong people in my life. It's about time we have a drink before we move on to rebuild homes and lives. I am SUPER EXCITED to be featuring Agavero Orange on the blog today! As many of you know, my Mexican family is super into tequila. Me, not so much. But, when I pair great tequila with Agavero Orange, I love it!

Happy Monday y'all! I feel like it's been FOREVER since I last posted. Life has been CRAZY. With work, wedding planning, and trying to spend time with friends and family there hasn't been much time for me to sit...
The free samples in this month’s box were awesome! I love that a lot of the items are full size. That is always a nice surprise.
Through pageants I have learned to be confident, to speak in public, and how to walk into a room full of people I don't know. I learned life skills that I wouldn't have learned otherwise. I have A LOT of reasons for loving pageants, but here are my top 4 reasons why I compete in pageants and why I will CONTINUE to compete in them.
I have skydiving on my bucket list. And, right now, I can't see myself conquers my fears to jump out of a plane. Then I discovered iFly Austin and I thought it would be a GREAT opportunity to keep doing what I fear and hopefully get over it! iFLY is the perfect adrenaline rush for those of use who aren’t keen on jumping out of a plane...yet (at least for me haha).
