I have been dreaming of attending Diner en Blanc since I first learned about the event in 2012. I told anyone who would listen about the event only to be met with blank stares. It seemed that many people didn’t understand my interest in attending an event that you (A) pay a fee to attend, (B) dress in all white, (C) are responsible for bringing your own tables, chairs, decor, food, … Continue reading My Experience at Diner en Blanc Dallas 2016
Summer 2016 is officially here! Is it me or is this year stuck in overdrive? I feel like I was just chilling in my flannel pjs telling y’all “Happy New Year” last month. Anyway, what are you guys planning to do this summer? I don’t know about you but I am in desperate need of a vacation ASAP. Seriously it has been 4 months since my last … Continue reading Thrifted Summer Style
Miami has been on my list of places to visit since my teen years. I’ve been dreaming of lounging in a cabana on the white sandy shores of South Beach, taking a stroll along Ocean Drive, doing some shopping at Lincoln Road Mall, and visiting the Art Deco district for ages. So I thought Miami would be the perfect destination to kick off our One Thousand Dollar … Continue reading Visit Miami!
Some days I just want to come to my blog and share my heart with you guys. Today is one of those days. My heart breaks for my country at times. There have been a lot of tragedies here in America lately. It seems that every time I turn on the news, the media is discussing some type of crisis. There was a massacre in … Continue reading Live your best life!
The Statue of Liberty is an All- American attraction that I believe everyone should visit at least once especially if you love history. I must say preparing for the trip over to the monument was like going through security at the airport only on a level 10. I felt like we almost had to strip naked before going through the metal detectors. It was intense! Fortunately, having … Continue reading Postcards from NYC: Statue of Liberty
Some days I wish I drove a bulldozer to work. I’m so serious. Today is one of those mornings that I wanted to learn how to operate heavy machinery just so I would have a license to push all the ridiculous drivers onto the shoulder of the highway. Just picture it. My petite body operating 2 tons of fun with the song lyrics “move, get … Continue reading Bulldozing through the Commute
I have a thing for numbers. If you tell me a number once or twice I can usually remember it. My family and friends like to use this skill to their advantage. Thank God I’m not a criminal. When I thought about today’s date 3.14.15 I instantly thought that’s PI! I did a little research and found out the today has officially been dubbed Pi … Continue reading It's PI day!
I have learned a lot about packing for vacations over the years. I’ve learned that its easy to pack 2 weeks worth of clothing in a carry on during the summer but far more challenging during the winter due to the amount of layering that is required to keep warm. I also have learned how to keep from accruing those pesky overweight luggage fees (I will … Continue reading Shoes in my Suitcase

Hopefully you didn’t gain weight during the holidays like I did. I just can’t resist all the yummy pastries at Christmas time. No worries though, it gives me a goal to accomplish during the first … Continue reading Hello again + 2015 Goals
On this day 8 years ago, I graduated from the University of South Carolina but more importantly I finished nursing school! It was one of the best days in my life. If someone told me back then in 8 years you will not be working as a registered nurse at the bedside, I would probably have laughed. After all those late nights, early mornings, stressful … Continue reading Milestone
