GUYS. We are back from Mexico (and technically Conroe too because we spent a weekend with my fam in my hometown). I'm feeling so refreshed and #blessed to be back in Dallas with my fur baby, Marble. Getting to spend a weekend with both Daniel and Marble in my hometown with my family was the icing on the "relaxation station" cake. I really missed them. I definitely need to make more time to drive the 3+ hours to see them.
ANYWAY - this vlog is silly, random and totally us. We made burgers at home (all with super healthy ingredients!) and made a lil' trip for one of Daniel's favorite "go-to" beers. Goals, right?
I'll be editing and uploading what photos we have from our Cancun vacation. We were pretty absorbed in relaxing and mentally just chilling so I kinda failed at getting video footage and tons of quality photos. But I shall share what I have, none the less!
Have you been to Cancun? We really wished we had explored more and will definitely be back!
VLOG and Cook Dinner with Us!: First thing is first, I’m not sure what happened to the quality of this vlog?! I think my camera was on the wrong setting… so sorry about this, guys! I promise the footage gets better and I will definitely not let it happen again, ha! Anyways, I LOVE VLOGS. Especially weekend vlogs! Daniel and I had a super chill Sunday recovering from travel. We had just spent a week in Mexico for vacation and it was sooooo beautiful and relaxing! I will have to share the footage with you soon but we didn’t vlog too much during our trip. We mostly relaxed and enjoyed each other and Cancun! In this weekend vlog you’ll follow Daniel and I around our cute little apartment and I catch you up on our trip. We decided to have a healthy burger and homemade potato wedges for dinner. My husband is an amazing cook so I always love when we do dinners at home. We even made a little trip to our local whole foods for one of Daniel’s go-to beers. He really wanted me to title this video “Burgers and Beers” hahah, I told him maybe next time;) I hope you enjoy this vlog!

Hello! I'm Alyssa Cates:) I'm a Dallas, Texas based YouTuber, blogger, vlogger, wife and pom mom. I love to make YouTube videos about thrifting, fashion, home decor, vlogging and other kewl things!
First thing's first - I love to laugh. I've been bouncing around the idea of making videos for over two years and decided to just go for it! What's to lose? I enjoy the filming, editing and the creative process. I'm a creative in every outlet of my life - including my wardrobe and home! I love to take something no one would and make it completely my own. I'm excited to make this space an extension of that! Please subscribe and comment below, I'd love to meet you! :)

I'm Alyssa, thanks for stopping by! A few things: I enjoy laughing, making youtube videos and thrift shopping. Currently listening to "Everything Now" by Arcade Fire. I like my coffee black and my preferred method of maxin' & relaxin' is with my husband and pup.
