2017 In Review, July-December

Make sure you see the first part of this post (January-June) HERE!

July

Work Update-

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happens every July so from July 14th-August 6th I experience the busiest time of the year (other than Black Friday) when it comes to work.

Travel-

On July 19th Troy and I went to Napa for the first time! We stayed in Healdsburg and mostly went to wineries around there and Sonoma. See that post HERE.

August

Life Update-

I got a year older!!

Hurricane Harvey hit the city of Houston (and surrounding areas.) Still helping with relief efforts to this day and will still be donating well into 2018. Almost all of the clothes I have sold since the hurricane have gone to relief. You can still make donations HERE.

Travel-

Lots of traveling this month!

On August 1st I went to San Fransisco for a work trip with Moreau Paris. It was a quick weekend trip but I loved getting to see the city. See that post HERE.

I left San Fran on third and flew straight into Vegas to meet Troy and some of our friends! Can you tell we love Vegas?

On the 10th of August Troy and I went to Montreal, Canada with Lolë and got to experience their White Tour! Such an incredible experience!! We go to see the entire city and do some pretty incredible things with the Lolë team. See that post HERE.

On the 28th I flew out to Cabo San Lucas to review a new hotel out there with my friend Lynlee. A minor hurricane hit while we were there but it still ended up being a super relaxing, fun trip. We just sat in the lounge every day and watched the storm around us in our robes. See that post HERE.

Travel-

On October 6th I drove down to Austin and got to check the Austin City Limits (ACL) Festival off of my bucket list! I learned that I am not that fond of musical festivals (wayyy too many people!!) See that post HERE.

On the 13th I went back to Virginia with my parents to visit my sister in the Fall. My grandmother came too and we had such an amazing time! See that post HERE.

On the 20th I went back to Austin and got to see Formula One with Chandon! Troy really loved that trip!

On the 28th I went on a cruise to Honduras, Costa Maya, and Cozumel with Royal Caribbean! I am just a cruise junkie now and cannot wait until the next one! See that post HERE.

November

 

Work Update-

Black Friday is every November and it pretty much consumes my life (and the entire month!)

Travel-

I got back from the cruise on the 6th and left for Omaha, Nebraska on November 22nd. That is where Troy is from and we go to Omaha every Thanksgiving. I love the week that I spend there during this time. It is usually still in the 80s in Texas so it is a great break from the heat and we always have so much fun with his family and friends! I feel like I could move to Omaha but Troy says I would never be able to handle the Winter.

We got back from Nebraska on the 25th and I left for Paris on the 26th with my mom. Trip of a lifetime for sure! I am obsessed with Paris! See that post HERE.

December

Work Update-

I took a serious break from work. Could you guys tell? I think it is important to take a step back and re-fresh!

Travel-

I got back from Paris on the 4th of December and went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico from the 17-24. It was weird being in Mexico for Christmas and I don’t think we are going to do it again. It was weird that no one in my family put up decorations. It didn’t even feel like Christmas at all! See that post HERE.

I went back home to East Texas for New Years because my sister came into town! We just hung around in sweatpants for 4 straight days. It was amazing!
