Exploring Your Town - The Boardwalk Towne Lake

This post was sponsored by The Boardwalk Towne Lake. As always, the opinions expressed here are 100% my own. Thanks for supporting Always A New Day!

Living in the 'burbs of a major city definitely has its perks - life is a bit slower, yet there is easy access to all the fun in town. But, sometimes, driving into the big city isn't feasible (or a good for the patience - hey, Houston traffic). Thankfully, our area is growing with possibilities!

Last Thursday, I spent my day at The Boardwalk Towne Lake to take over their Instagram (see my takeover HERE.) To be honest, my family has already spent many a time here - watching live music, indulging in some yummy treats, and letting the kids run free in the green area. So, when the Boardwalk asked if I would showcase all they have to offer, you bet I jumped on board.

Orangetheory Fitness at Towne Lake - I was very nervous about my first stop of the day. This mama loves a good workout, but I wasn't sure I could keep up with the pace/structure of Orangetheory. Confession: I watched YouTube videos before I went to make sure I did it right (#OCDprobs).

But y'all. I cannot say enough about the staff and my instructor for the day. Morgan was the sweetest in introducing me to the format, and Matt was the perfect instructor for this newbie. He checked on me throughout the workout and guided me as needed. Seriously, once I hopped on the treadmill, all the anxiety went away. Being the new girl wasn't as scary as I thought, and in fact, I am thinking of joining! I cannot wait to share more of my journey now that I am becoming an OT junkie. Thank you to the staff for your kindness and help.

Breakfast Brunch Café - Next up, a juice from BBC. This stop wasn't my first here - their breakfast has been so good each time I've gone. I highly recommend the Chorizo Burrito, the Breakfast Sandwich, and the Salted Caramel Mocha. My kids recommend the S'mores Hot Chocolate! Thanks, Anthony, for letting me stop in!

The Reserve Spa and Salon - Mama got a new do, too! I had an appointment scheduled with my sweet former student, Jessica, so we built my day around my time with her. I got my color cleaned up and took some length off this growing mess. Loved my time with Jessica! The salon itself has so much to offer - from facials and massages to any hair fix you need! Can't wait to go back!

The Cheese Bar - After my do, I picked up lunch at one of my favorite places EVER. You need the grilled cheese in your life. Or the chicken salad sandwich. Or the turkey, apple, brie one. Or their meat/cheese board. You just need it all - go ASAP. Even better? Grab a friend and add a glass of wine to your meal.

Laura's Line - I ran over and spent some time perusing through this precious boutique. I found myself two cute tees that are the softest I've ever felt. Her spring line is up and ready too - bright colors and all. You can even find the perfect gift for a friend. But, trust me, you will leave with something for yourself.

Land of A Thousand Hills - After shopping, I picked up my daughter from school and hurried back for an afternoon cup of caffeine. Another LOTH fan recommended I get the Skinny Muffin, and she was on point with her suggestion! Delish! In past visits, we also have devoured their mini quiches, turnovers, buttercream doozies, scones, and cookies. I highly recommend grabbing a coffee or latte and sitting down inside to enjoy!

Thank you so much to the Boardwalk for the great day of a good workout, pampering, good eats, and a few treats. Lindsey, Shana, and everyone else who made sure my day went smoothly - thank you!

  2. Great post. I love exploring. I miss out on so many fun things in my town because I usually only explore when I'm on vacation.

    1. That is so true - we need to explore more at home. I can't wait to do it more.
