Hey y’all, my name is Ashley, and I’m your somewhat typical Type-A Accountant. I live in the great state of Texas with my husband, Chris, and our fur baby, Dart. I’ve lived in Texas my whole life, which is probably where my addiction to Aggie Football and chips and salsa has come from.

Besides football and great Tex Mex, I also love traveling to new places and enjoying all of the sights, activities, and food that come with visiting somewhere new. My husband and I always joke that there are “doing” vacations and “relaxing” vacations, and if I had my choice, I would always pick a “doing” vacation. You only live once right?

The idea for this blog came to me when my husband earned Companion Pass Status with Southwest in 2014. Basically, when he buys a plane ticket, I can fly with him for free. As soon as I found out, I started planning the millions of trips that we could go on and all of the exciting places that we could see.

Like most everyone else, we don’t have the ability to travel all the time, so we’re going to try to visit as many places and see as many things, sometimes in just a weekend. I know that it will be impossible to see and do everything in such a short amount of time, but I’m hoping that this will give us the opportunity to experience as much as possible.

I hope that you enjoy the blog, and that it gives you some ideas for planning your next trip!

Here’s a few more posts to help you get to know me:

  • Yee haw Texas 🙂

  • Hi there! Just ran into your blog on the Part-Time Traveler Talk Facebook group, and I love it! Just thought I’d say hello because I’m also a Texas girl who loves to travel, and I’m also an accountant! Seems like we have a lot in common! Going to go scroll through lots of your posts now. 🙂

    • I went over and read your blog too! I’m so jealous that you’re taking 2.5 months to have a European adventure! I can’t wait to hear all about it!

  • How cool! How do you earn Companion Pass Status?

    • My husband travels a lot for work, so any chance he gets he tries to fly Southwest so he can rack up the points. I think that we’re going to trade out our United credit card for the Southwest credit card this year so we can get even more points!

    • It would be a crime against Texas to not like Chip and JoJo! I’m just so excited that I’ll be able to yell at the tv screen that we’ve been there when we watch next season of Fixer Upper! I always love to find other Texan’s blogs so I’m headed over to check out yours too!
