While we get ready for those Memorial Day sales, BBQ’s, and parties, we remember & honor those who have died fighting for our Country. What better time to proudly display our Country’s American flag! These freebie mini USA flags are a really easy way to add a little patriotic flair to your Memorial Day get together.
We had a getaway to my favorite little haunted town for a belated Mother’s Day this past weekend! We didn’t get to do a lot on the “actual” day this year because Chris had been working mega overtime hours launching a new project. He made it up to me though! We used to visit Jefferson, Texas together before becoming parents and it’s been way too long since our last trip. I was so excited to show Olivia all of the things that we love about it.
Jefferson is a sweet historical town that was established in 1841. It’s nestled in East Texas near the beautiful Caddo Lake and home of the Big Cypress Bayou. There is a ton of history here! Jefferson was one of the largest ports in Texas during the mid to late 1800’s. Now with only around 2,000 residence, this “ghost” town is ever so charming with it’s stunning plantation style homes, over-sized shade trees, luscious landscapes, and New Orleans vibes.
It hosts a number of yearly festivals and events like Mardi Gras, Candlelight Tour of Homes, ghost tours and train rides, motor cross, car shows, and even Bigfoot conferences. There are so many cool things to do here! We stayed in a gorgeous bed & breakfast for the first time, and we really enjoyed the experience. It definitely made us want to seek them out more in the future! Our hosts Bill and Angie at The Captain’s Castle were so welcoming and down to earth. They cooked us an amazing breakfast that I’m still craving!
I have had the best time planning every detail of our Disney trip so far, including what to wear! I don’t normally post about this kind of thing, but it was such a fun part of the process and I thought it would be helpful to some of you trying to figure out park attire. For the majority of our trip, we chose to wear Disney themed tees to pair with character greets and parks we’ve got scheduled for the day. We love Disney movies, but don’t normally sport the attire and we’re taking full advantage of it!
