Last weekend Ryan and I made a trip out to visit his parents.  We have been so busy lately that it has been hard to get out of Dallas.  We had a lot of celebrating to do and catch up on;  birthdays, mother's day and finally father's Day.  We drove down after work on Friday night so not much was done once we arrived.  Saturday was a great day spent by the pool snacking on the most amazing cucumber sandwiches before our dinner plans, just relaxing and enjoying the sun.

For dinner we had reservations at Enoc's Stomp.  It is a small vineyard just outside of Longview.  The vineyard is nestled back in the piney woods of East Texas, I think that is half of its charm and why I love it so much.  When you drive up you start to see the rows of vines as you make your way up the hill, once at the top you get a breathtaking view of the winery restaurant and tasting room.  We had a great spot right by the window and were able to enjoy our meal overlooking the property as the sun set.

Since it was hot and humid I opted for this simple maxi dress from Jessica Simpson.  I will be honest I hunted and hunted for this dress to link, but it simply cannot be found.  I did link some similar ones and will keep searching for it!  The dress was really long (normally not an issue for me) so I added a belt around my waist mainly to keep me from accidentally stepping on the dress causing the top to slip down and provide everyone a free show!  I am obsessed with the color and the ease of this boho style dress, totally my go to this summer.  I am sure you will see this on repeat this summer!

Well this week is a short week for me, and Friday cannot come fast enough.  I am ready for BBQ with family and friends and of course fireworks!!  Do you all have any plans for the 4th of July??  I hope everyone has a great week, Happy Monday Everyone!
