My 15 Favorites of 2015

I have something to share with you.

Happy New Year!  It’s been a fun year with over 130 new posts on Something to Share with You, the chance to “explore” 23 different cities and too many amazing meals to count.  Here are my 15 favorites from 2015.

Kid Friendly:

  • Surprise Mommy-Daughter Dates
    My favorite post of the entire year since I get to plan a surprise date with my daughter every month!  I hope you read this post and plan some fun dates with your kids!!

Beauty and Fashion:


  • The Starbucks app
    Easiest way to pay for bottled water, snacks and oh yeah, coffee at the airport!

Just Because:

  • A Treat for the Feet:  Snoozies Slippers
    These are on my feet from the minute I get home till I get in bed!
  • Have time to read?  Liane Moriarty
    Download some books and find some time to read! Great for shorter flights!

Foodies: Recipes & Stuff:

On the Road Eats:


  • Favorite Lunch- Peska in Houston
    $25 for an appetizer, soup or salad and an entrée.  Try the mexican shrimp cocktail and the Fideo Seco(mexican pasta in a light sauce with calamari, shrimp, clams and mussels).


Hope you enjoyed this short trip back through 2015!  Looking forward to great new favorites this year!


My Favorite Things- Ann Taylor Denim

I have something to share with you.

A great pair of jeans can be hard to find. I have a few “my tush looks great and my legs look slim” jeans that are great for date night.  I have my “super comfortable, baggy but not sexy” jeans that I can wear to a kiddo soccer game or to the food store.  And I have a pair that are perfect for knee-high boots or my favorite flats.  And most of them cost over $150/pair. Why can’t I just find a super comfortable, stretchy but not baggy jean that will work with all my shoes and for both work and life?  Well, I found them and didn’t have to spend a fortune.

anntaylorjeanAnn Taylor has some great denim and I bought two pairs, one skinny and one boot cut, both the modern cut.  No altering needed, they have the right amount of stretch AND they are a darker jean so they work with everything.  My skinnies fit perfect with flats or my knee-high or mid-calf boots and the boot cut fit great with my lower boots and other shoes(even sneakers).  They go with me on vacation, on business trips and if I do need another pair, I would be happy to spend the money(under $100 and on sale all the time).  Three other women in my office have already bought them – I think we have a winner!
