Pajama Mondays

It’s no secret that I’m a tiny bit lazy….not that I lack drive, I just prefer to be comfortable. Blankets, cookies and warm fires are my jam! So if you were to ask me what my favorite piece(s) of clothing to wear would be I would immediately shoot back with pajamas, of course! Being a freelancer has been a struggle in a way, and for you it might sound silly but to me it’s kind of a dramatic problem. Oddly enough, I don’t mind waking up to an inbox full of emails with a task list the length of a football field, however if you ask me to get dressed before sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of joe, I will give you the evil eye and practically hiss at you like a crazy person. I’m not completely insane, I promise! I know that it’s ridiculous to stay in pajamas all day every day, but I never realized how much I did it, until I got married.

Needtobreathe

We always make a new year resolution to go see more concerts and shows but then our weekends fill up with life. I would say live music is probably one of the first things to get moved to the bottom of the list but this year we put an end to that. This has been […]

Old Town Stroll

Being freelancers, we don’t work in an office but rather at home, which to some might sound really nice but after a while you just feel sloppy. Immediately my productivity level goes down and all I want to do is stay in my sweats and crash on the couch all day. I realized this is […]

California Winter

Let’s be honest with ourselves….it does not get cold in California. Sometimes it might rain but with this drought even that is a stretch! Not that I’m complaining, I really do love the consistent 75 degree weather but it leaves no reason to buy winter clothes. At first I felt disappointed that the rest of […]

Labor Day Weekend Escape: Catalina

We’re not really beach people, but we are a huge fan of island life! The relaxing breeze, cocktails around every corner, and beyond the numerous activities, the choice to do absolutely nothing! Avalon, Catalina, just off the coast of Southern California, is the perfect getaway for this. Of course we weren’t lazy bums the entire […]

Functional + Stylish: Kitchen Edition

We know what it’s like to live in a tiny kitchen. It looks messy the second you leave a cup on the counter and it fills with smoke when you cook a single piece of chicken. I bet you feel like giving up on making such a tiny space cute, it’s going to get ruined […]

San Antonio in Style

Why on earth would anyone travel to Texas in the middle of July?!! Maybe because it’s awesome! We’ve been to Texas before, Dallas to be exact, but had never been to New Braunfels (You always need to try new things right?!). We didn’t realize how big this state was until we really explored each city! […]

Food Wars

Every married couple has something they don’t agree on. It doesn’t have to be anything major, it could be what to spend their extra spending cash on or what movies to rent for the night. Oddly enough we bicker the most about FOOD. That’s right, inside I’m a fast food fatty and my husband is […]

Heritage Creamery – Waco, TX

It is a Carillo tradition to visit Waco, TX no matter where we’re actually vacationing in Texas. Anthony, being a proud alumni of Baylor University always drives us around the campus reminiscing about his crazy college years and points out new shops and establishments around town. Our go-to stops consist of rad places like Common Grounds and Dichotomy […]
