Blogtober: Best Vacation Ever!

Vacations, vacations. Is there ever such a thing as too many? Overruled! I say this to anyone who advises yes.

While my favorite vacay memory is a toss up from NYC, (you remember the one where Hunter and I were almost arrested in an underground purse ring bust? No? Please refresh your laughter/fear altimeter here), or our first New Orleans visit together, I shall go with.......



Nawlins for the win!

This was the best because it was the first vacation Hunter and I ever took together; New Orleans is an amazing city full of heart, love, and damn delicious food; and we just happened to wake up on our second day to find snow, which happened to be the first time in 20 years it snowed there! We, as two born and raised Florida kids, had never, ever experienced this mythical creature known as snow. Hunter had only seen flurries in Alabama and I had nada. Very exciting to say the least, and far too cold for my sunshine state living self.

Note to self: Never pick up a snowball with cotton gloves


How many people can say they have a snow encrusted picture of this?

Making frands wherever we went


It was so much fun that we went back exactly one year later with a friend and had yet another amazing time, minus the snow. We should go back 20 years from that first visit and see if it happens again. Hmm...14 hour road trip?? Again?? Perhaps, or perhaps I could just scratch Hunter's eyes out in the comfort of our own living room. Because I don't care who you are, who you're with, spending that amount of time in the car with the same person will draw the devil right out of ya.

Totally kidding. Don't we look happy? This was the last day of the trip as we were leaving the city:


Tell me, was your favorite vacay hot or cold in temp?

Until we meet again,

    1. It was cool and a complete fluke we were there when we were. I need a warm vacay right about now too :)

  3. I want to visit NOLA. I didn't know it snowed there. How awesome! It's like the weather people knew you would be visiting and wanted you to experience snow!

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T. While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”. Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration: Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better. Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See w

What makes me happy...Blogtober Day 19

What a timely topic to write about, seeing as its Sunday, and I LOVE Sundays! They make me very happy. Lots of things make me happy though. I am so thankful to say that! So in no particular order, allow me to kick back this beautiful Sunday and let some pictures tell you more about what makes me happy: The pawple who are always waiting and happy when you get home: Well, sometimes... This cat: Amazing company to go through life with: Food Trucks: #TBT: Laughing like this: Seeing the world through the eyes of the littlest people: Fashion: Kate Spade in particular: Family, with a highlighted focus on our generation: I feel very fortunate for what and who makes me happy. Tell me, what makes you happiest in all the land? Until we meet again, M

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation... Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands. Let me be clear, I am t
