San Diego for the Weekend

San Diego for the Weekend on Waketon Road Blog

I’m just getting home from my weekend in San Diego visiting my hubby. Brian is in the Navy Reserves and every year he has a two-week duty somewhere. The past couple of years he has been lucky enough to get San Diego. I never complain because it’s the perfect excuse for me to take a long weekend and visit him. I feel like it’s been ages since Brian has been...

Combining Neutrals

Are you all still recovering from the Holiday weekend like I am? The days between Christmas and New Years are always tough to get through. You’re coming off a wonderful, long weekend with so many fun festivities and looking forward to another fun couple of days. Just a couple more days! We’re almost there! I have been all about comfort and neutrals this week. Christmas and New Years are typically...

Looking Toward the New Year

Well Christmas has come and gone so quickly like it always does. All that preparation and it’s over in such a flash! I had a wonderful weekend with my family. It’s always nice to unplug from the world and just spend time together. We didn’t have the TV on all weekend and we barely checked our phones. Nothing but food, conversation and games with the family – and a couple...

Holiday Traditions

I know I’ve said this before but I really can’t believe it’sย Christmas in just two days! I have been loving the whole holiday season but as day actually approaches it feels less like Christmas. Today I will be finishing off the last few things on my list which will feel so good! This time of year can be so hectic so I need to remind myself to just slow down...

In this post I said Winter is Coming… well, it has definitely arrived! This week has been so cold. Especially for us Texans! We are really not used to it being below freezing with wind chills taking us into the single digits. I would say that the cold weather makes it feel more like Christmas, but I’m not sure that’s true. It has me dreaming of a white Christmas but...

Christmas Dressy

It’s the week of Christmas and I’m still wondering where the time has gone. I spent the weekend finishing up my shopping and wrapping everyone’s gifts. I always try to slow down and savor this time of year, but I do get caught up in the hustle and bustle. The cold front that blew in this weekend definitely helped me slow down. With the temperature dropping all I wanted to...

Seasonal Skin Care

Something I have always been very passionate about is skin care. I’ve talked about it a couple of times on the blog before. My goal isย to make sure that I only share with you when I have something I can stand behind.ย First Aid Beauty products are still some of my favorite products I have ever used. I also invested in La Mer and found that it was definitely worth the...
