by the amount of pictures we took--you would have thought we were tourists. i'll even go as far as to say we were probably embarrassing {even stopped traffic to pose--so yes, i'd say we accomplished embarrassing}
i'll spare you and only post some of them:

 {my amazing parents}
 {we found elvis-no big deal}
{adorable little boy playing the fiddle in the street}

my night in photos--what did y'all do?

on another note--i've been thinking about starting a little challenge: only drinking water for a month, i hate water..BUT i thought just maaaybe it'd make my skin like me again because we're currently in a little battle..more like full on war. so-any water drinkers out there? think it will help?

yours truly,

It looks like you had a fabulous 4th of July! I LOVE the dress and cowboy boots! I'm going to Texas next month so I need a cute dress to wear with my boots :)

As far as drinking water, I totally should but don't drink as much as I should. Let me know if you do the challenge, I'll totally join ya :)

Great photographs! Love that Elvis photo! Haha.

Glad to hear you had a great 4th of July! How exciting for you. :)

Oh, and being a non-water drinker myself, I have discovered (after being told several times to drink it) that water is actually really good for you and it keeps your skin hydrated and healthy. So yes, I think you should drink water, even if it tastes bland. Add a lemon or a cucumber. :)

Thanks for following! You are so sweet, I am going to follow you back!

Love the touristy photos! Perfect memories:-) AND a big big yes to the water challenge. I recently did a blog post on my skincare tips, and that's one of the main ones! Start carrying a cute water bottle around with you, and soon it'll become a habit. xoxo

alright, y'all have convinced me! today marks my first day of only water :)) i'll definitely keep you updated because this will be tough!

Looks like you had a great day's celebrations!

I drink a lot of water and notice a huge difference in my skin when I stop... if I have a bad day where I drink a lot of fizzy drinks or alcohol, 3-4 days later, my skin explodes with spots. So definitely give it a go, within a week I bet you'll see a big difference!

I came across your blog and it is oh-so cute. I love your 4th pics and those great brown cowboy boots! I just got back from a very touristy weekend so I can relate to the picture taking! The more pics the better though!
