I am so happy today is Friday, but not for my normal ready for the weekend reason.  Today, Houston is not forecasted to have any rain!!  On Monday morning, the entire city was pounded with tons of rain.  The city shut down as streets and neighborhoods were flooded, but that was only the beginning.  The massive amounts of rain filled our creeks, bayous and rivers causing them to overflow into area neigborhoods.  A little bit of flooding in certain areas has become normal in Houston when we have a hard rain, but this time the flooding affected many new areas as most of our creeks and bayous crested or hit “flood stage.”   Our news is filled with images of people being rescued by boats and giant trucks because none of us realized how crazy the flooding would be.  On top of that, Houston has had sporadic storms every day since only adding to the problem.  My family and I are all very lucky to not have flooding in our homes or cars.   Our weather forecast now is filled with sunshine and very little rain, something all of us here in Houston are grateful for!

All of this craziness this week has made my vacation feel like forever ago!  It’s hard to believe it was just last weekend.  I wore this outfit out during our first full day in Charleston.  I love this as the perfect summer vacation outfit.  The weather in Charleston ended up being a bit cooler than we expected, so I tossed this cardigan on over my top.  If you are looking for a easy breezy summer top, this is it!  I love the cute eyelet details and the ruffle.  The material is really lightweight perfect for the hot summer days to come.  I also cannot brag on these sandals enough.  I wore them all 3 days in Charleston for massive amounts of walking.  My friend has a FitBit, and we walked around 8-10 miles per day.  I liked that these sandals are enclosed.  I think it helps add support during hours of walking.  Some of my other friends were sporting Converse shoes, and all said they were very comfy for our walking adventures.  I may need to invest in them for my next trip!
