  2. I really want to visit San Antonio to see the River Walk (oh and for food! lol)! Great list! I opted to not do products in my list as well! Oh, and I found you via Blog-tember linkup! ;)

    1. Hi there! The river walk is amazing, though it gets super crowded in the summer and weekends, which can make it hard to really enjoy it. But it is still a favorite of mine because it is beautiful around there aaaand because the first day I met my (now) husband, we hung out on the river walk, so it has sentimental value :)

    1. I grew up in Portland, OR and that is where family is, so we visit pretty often. I just recently moved to Texas last October when we got married, so I miss the PNW since I spent most of my life there. What part are you visiting?

    2. I'm headed to Portland actually. I went to college there and moved to Texas 6 years ago tomorrow! I try to go back and visit everyone every other year or so.
      What brought y'all to Texas?

  6. Oh cool! Portland is awesome! Hope the weather stays nice for you! We are visiting Portland in a few weeks too! I moved to Texas a year ago when I married a Texan :) We dated long distance for a few years and I decided I wanted to move down
