April Video: 5 Things

Here’s our latest YouTube 5 Things Houston series – be sure to subscribe to The Blonde Side’s YouTube Channel to stay up to date!

Here are the 5 Things we think you should check out in April – there’s so much to explore in the great city of Houston, but these 5 places/events go our vote.

Check out the video below and thanks to Uproar.Design for the video work!

#1 Of course, we gotta get some workouts in this month with all the brunches, booze and summer around the corner. I realize Orangetheory Fitness isn’t new, but I personally have never checked it out. They have a ton of locations – something like 10 in Houston – and even Erin Andrews hit up a class during Super Bowl week. And guess what – your first class is free. So I’ll be doing at least one of these classes this month – hopefully I’ll get hooked. I’m sure my abs would welcome that change with big open, bulging arms.

#2: Astros Baseball – DUH. For those who don’t know, a job with the Astros back in 2006 is what actually brought me to Houston. I used to think air-conditioned baseball was the devil disguised in a sport’s uniform, but I totally get it now. But what I love about Astros baseball in April is that the season is just starting off, so the excitement is definitely there, plus, there’s a chance you may catch a game with the roof open and that is just a glorious Houston day – TRUST ME.

#3: Visit to Lost Pines – So technically this isn’t in Houston, but it’s a quick and beautiful 2-hour drive from Houston and well worth making our Top 5 list for April for many reasons. But if I only have time to give you one reason to visit Lost Pines, it’s for the golf.

I went here last month and have always driven right past it on my many trips to Austin, but I won’t be skipping this spot anymore.

#4: Eight Row Flint: Frose – Filming on location at Eight Row Flint, the obsession with frose is still alive and well in Houston, thankfully. 

#5: 4-Person Golf Scramble at Pearland Golf Club – I’m taking my golfing talents (haha) to Pearland on April 18th for a 4-person scramble benefiting the Women’s Center of Brazoria County. It’s $50 person, you can buy mulligans (the only way I participate in golf tournaments these days) and there is cold beer for purchase to help drown your backswing problems. It’s super fun and for a good cause and this is where I take my lessons, so come hang out with me. It’s a weekday, so just call in sick, you have my permission!

I love living at The Millennium Kirby because of all there is to do in Houston and all so close. These are just five of our top things to check out – stay tuned for much more! (Hair and makeup for this video courtesy of the super talented Andrea Simmons with FaceForward.)
