Heel lover though I am, there’s always room in my busy mom-of-4 life for a comfy pair of flats that I can just slip on and go. Until very recently, I did not own a single pair of anything close to a flipflop, I’m just not a plastic thong flipflop kinda gal. But when I ran across a pair of gorgeous slides at Target on sale for $13 I was in love, so much so that I bought them in both colors, white and metallic gold. Soo comfortable and I’ve been living in them when heels just won’t do, you know, those mom days filled with gymnastics, errands, tae kwon do, trips to the park and more.

All you classic Disney fans are going to love this, the next 2 Broadway musicals to hit the stage at The Majestic are Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid! I’m super excited for these shows, as a mom of 4, we’re big fans of Disney in this house!

My musical-loving mini man and I made a date night out of Beauty and the Beast last year when the show came to San Antonio and we both loved it, everything you love about the classic Disney movie with a ton of humor and fun thrown in. This year, I think I’ll have to take my 3 yr old mini queen to the shows with me. Ariel is her all time favorite Disney Princess and she’s going to think this is the best thing ever!

I have some very exciting news to share with you guys! If you’re a local San Antonionian, you might already know that I’m the official fashion blogger for The Shops at La Cantera’s blog, Fearless Fashionista. Well, a few weeks ago GGP (the company that own La Cantera and hundreds of malls across the U.S.) contacted me saying that I had been chosen out of all GGP’s bloggers to put together a back-to-school fashion guide that would be featured on their mall websites nationwide and was I interested in the opportunity. Um, YES!

My back-to-school fashion guide is now live and can be viewed on 110 GGP mall websites all around the U.S.! What a fabulous opportunity that I’ve been given! I’m thrilled to now be able to share all my hard work with you guys and hopefully help you and your minis out with your back to school looks with my tips and trends.

Lüke San Antonio visiting chef dinner

unnamed

One of my favorite restaurants on the riverwalk, Lüke, has been hosting a series of visiting-chef dinners that are a foodie’s dream. In an effort to bring some of the culinary spirit of New Orleans to San Antonio, John Besh’s Visiting Chef Series invites top chefs from his 10+ restaurants in Louisiana to his one and only Texas establishment.

This month’s featured Chef is Todd Pulsinelli from Chef Besh’s flagship restaurant, August. He and Chef Russ of Lüke will be teaming together to serve a seasonally-driven five course menu that intertwines August’s traditional French fare with the flavors and ingredients highlighted at Lüke San Antonio.  Expect yummy bites like buratta cheese and heirloom tomato tartlettes, potato crusted oysters, and roast duckling with foie gras.

Read on for the full menu.
