Travel Tuesday: Family Camping Trip in Big Bend Ranch State Park, Texas

 
For spring break this year, the Fab Fam took a camping road trip across the Southwest.  We went from our home in Austin to Big Bend Ranch State Park in West Texas, the Antelope Canyon area in Arizona, and Zion and Arches National Parks in Utah.  I'll share our overall road trip route, itinerary, and recommendations in a few weeks, but leading up to that I am highlighting each of our destinations in detail.  Today's post is about our family camping trip in Big Bend Ranch State Park, Texas.

With about a month left in ski season here in the US, there is still time to get a cold-weather vacation in the books this year.  Whether you ski or not, you will want to look fabulous ski-side, lodge-side, and après ski. 

I just got back from a fabulous week in Keystone, Colorado, and had the chance to sport some really cute snow clothes and accessories.  I am sharing them in today's post to help inspire your snowy vacation wardrobe.  I have links to shop all of the outfit components at the bottom of the post, but remember that on my Instagram Shop page you can easily shop the looks I am sharing on Instagram at any time.

Here are some flat lays of a few of the outfits:

Travel Tuesday: St. Paddy's Day in Savannah, Georgia

Happy St. Patrick's Day from the Fab Fam!
 
We love Savannah.  It is such a cool city, and is also the home of one of our favorite families: Sarah, Lenny, and their adorable boys.  We decided to visit them during our Southern US road trip last spring break, which just so happened to be around St. Paddy's Day.  St. Patrick's Day is a big deal in Savannah - in fact, they have one of the biggest St. Patrick's Day parades in the US!   Today I am sharing about our experience in Savannah for St. Patrick's Day specifically.  For more recommendations for visiting Savannah, check out these posts:

Our boys were especially excited about St. Paddy's Day this year, because they were going to be in the famous Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade with our friends and their family!  Bonus - they were reunited with one of their little buddies from LA (before we moved to Texas and they moved to Georgia)! 

These little hams!

Product Review: The Award-Winning Trudeau Reinforced Silicone Round Cake Mold


Disclosure: I received this product for review purposes.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.  I was not financially compensated for this post.

While I cook pretty much daily, I don't bake or make desserts that often.  When I do make desserts, I rarely make cakes, as the whole process is honestly a bit intimidating to me.  I get easily stressed out about maintaining their shape and decorating them in a way I can be happy with.  Though lately I have been thinking about giving it another chance and facing my fear of cake-making.

It felt fortuitous when I heard about a cake pan from Trudeau that had won an award at the
2017 Housewares Design Awards (honoring products offering design innovation and new ways for improving everyday living) and was offered the chance to review this cake pan myself.  Anything that could take some of the possibility for error out of the cake-making process was enough for me to give it a try.  I made my first cake using this pan this past weekend, and today I am sharing my full review.  Thanks to Trudeau and C.I. Visions for the opportunity to review this product!


I received the Trudeau 9" Structure Round Cake Mold, which has an integrated steel frame.  The main part of its form is made from silicone, which is non-stick and allows for easy removal from the pan.  It is also safe for the freezer and microwave, which was surprising given that the pan is still rigid around the top (which allows the mold to hold its shape).
