Just A Girl From South TX.

Updated: Feb 22, 2018

Welcome to my first blog ever.

I grew up in Kingsville, Texas, where the sun is always shinning and the Mexican food is like no other.

If I had to describe myself in one word:


I believe Jesus saves.

My parents are the BEST and I am so thankful they are mine. Quite simply put they are amazing. They have always pushed me to do more and instilled strong Christian values in my heart. I love my siblings (I have four of them), they are my best friends. I am the oldest with two younger sisters (Paige & Tristin) and two brothers (Shad & Noah) in that order. I absorbed the most valuable knowledge 1st-12th grade, while attending a tiny Christian school in Kingsville. I graduated from Texas A&M Kingsville with a Bachelors in Business Management and Marketing, when I was 19. (Go Javelinas!) When I was 17, my husband and I fell in love, we married while I was in college, and right after I moved to his hometown in the heart of the Texas Hill Country home of the gorgeous Frio River. Our children are my world. Alongside my hubby, I run our river outfitter stores, boutique and gun store ( click the link if you would like to read more about it: Josh's Frio River Outfitters ). I love makeup and am a certified makeup artist. I love the way makeup compliments the natural beauty that every single woman possesses.

My hobbies/interests include, but are not limited to: shopping, crafting, fishing, cooking, drinking coffee/tea, photography, kayaking, tubing, remodeling, writing, traveling (especially to beaches), "DIYing", hair and makeup, guns and working.


I hate laundry, it is my biggest flaw (seriously).

I am so excited to share my advice with you and read yours in the comments as well. Let's build each other up and learn from one another. Amidst all of the negativity in this world I believe my blog can bring a little joy to your life. I would like to share super quick (five minute) reads about my favorites. Life is so short, I want to make a difference and post content of value. The posts you will find here are authentic and written with love by me.

Please introduce yourself in the comments and let me know what topic(s) you would like to read about.


Heavenly Father,

Bless my readers, my family and myself. Let us learn together and uplift each other. Thank you for caring about us regardless of our flaws. Let us be a light for You in all that we do.

In Your name we pray,
