If you follow @topknots_and_takeout on Instagram, you got a glimpse of a. our sibling/spouse love for each other (in a non-creepy way) and b. the adorable place we took a couples trip for a weekend vacay. We called this trip our “Sibling Bash”… because we’re super wild, so ‘bash’ is only appropriate. Or something. Our brother Daniel and his wife Kristen got married in Dripping Springs several years ago. Their schedules did not allow them to honeymoon for an extended period immediately following their wedding, so they found Sage Hill Inn & Spa as the perfect place to relax and recharge to close out their wedding weekend. Fast forward a couple of years, Christiane planned a visit with her husband, followed by Daniel and Kristen deciding to join in on the fun, so naturally Keith and I were not going to miss out!
Fun things to put in an old purse for a toddler/little girl to play with. Many items you have around the house.
There is a nasty rumor out there that ‘they’ don’t make cute boy clothes. Just not true. As the mom of both genders, it’s true there are more accessories and probably more variety for girls, but there are sooooo many cute boy clothes. My little dude has developed quite a love for fashion over his […]
Remember when you were 18, about to “go out”? You planned your outfit, you knew just what was in style, and when you went out, you were generally wearing the same thing as every other 18 year old girl. Now….now, if you were to go that same place you would feel like a dinosaur. Somewhere […]
Okay, since doing a couple of stories about packing school lunches, Erica and I have had a few questions about what we pack in our kids’ lunch boxes. Since I am always looking for new, easy ideas for things to pack in the kids’ lunch, and I’m sure other people are too, we’ve decided to […]
If anyone is guilty of getting wrapped up in their own world, it’s me. My to-do list, meetings, appointments, problems, etc. run through my head as I race through life. Don’t talk world news to me, because I don’t know about it. Go ahead, judge on. Has anyone ever done anything nice for you that […]
What’s Always in Our Shopping Cart…… Back in the old days, I would need something….a new face wash, for example. I want something that cleans my face well, but isn’t too drying, it doesn’t leave my face oily either. It definitely can’t make me break out. I wonder if anyone else has had good results […]
New room, who dis? We have a landing area upstairs in our house that sat looking reaaaaallllyyy ugly for three plus years. I’m not sure why I didn’t act more quickly, but a room makeover was in my plan from the day we looked at the house. We had it “furnished” with an old IKEA […]
I hesitate to even share this recipe because it’s been my secret for so long. It’s my go-to when I want to look like a straight-up baller in the kitchen. These chocolate chip cookies are AMAZING. I mean it. They have no less than 32,000 calories per cookie, and it’s worth every one. If you’re […]
Gold & Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch These things are gold when you want a quick fix to de-puffing your eyes. You leave them on for 30 min, take them off and voila. They feel cool and a bit slimy but mostly refreshing. You really can’t beat them for the price of just over $11. I […]
