Happy Monday, y’all!! This past weekend went by wayyyy too fast- but I guess you know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun! The Stella Hotel was so nice to have me this weekend, and I had the most relaxing time. So excited to show y’all this gorgeous hotel!
Last week I spent a super relaxing few days in Oklahoma with my boyfriend and his family. We stayed at my boyfriend’s dad’s cabins up in the Beaver’s Bend surroundings, in the Broken Bow area- check them out here!! For those of y’all in the Oklahoma/Texas area, iff you ever find yourself wanting to take a little vacay, I highly recommend checking out these awesome cabins!
Anyway, we had so much fun on our little 4 day trip & I really wanted to share some of our photos with all of you! Akash took some of these pictures- if any of you have photography needs, be sure to check out his work here & here; he takes all of my photos, and does an amazing job 🙂 Thanks, baby!
Akash’s dad built a beautiful pond next to his properties- we spent one morning just exploring the area, and taking a nice walk around it. Last year we went fishing here, too!
We stayed in the Hilltop Honey Cove- amazing cabin, so much room!
Our second day on the trip it was super foggy- but it made for some really awesome photos!
We also stopped by the Hochatown State Park. It had a huge lake, and we spent one afternoon just by the shore finding seashells, skipping rocks, and playing frisbee- it was so nice to get some fresh air & just hang out. Akash took this photo by the water- so pretty!!
I hope all of you enjoyed seeing the pictures from our little trip! It was so nice to have a little getaway from real life, but now I’m back to work. Two more weeks until I head back to school, so I’m definitely going to be savoring my time here in Dallas for the next several days.
This past summer, my boyfriend and I took a trip to Mexico. You can check out the travel diary I made here! It was one of my first times being on vacation without my entire family, and it was the first time I’d ever planned a vacation all on my own. We had so so much fun, but planning the whole trip was definitely quite a handful to handle. For those of y’all who are here from my old blog, you’ve already seen the pictures I shared from the trip, but I really wanted to write a post sharing with y’all my tips for planning a trip for the first time. Being college students, we were also trying to minimize as many costs as we could, so the majority of my planning tips are for those of y’all on a budget. I’m definitely not an expert (yet), but I hope some of my tips can help relieve some of the stress that comes with vacay-planning.
