The Grand Central Band @ Toby Keith's I Love This Bar

Happy Monday! No need to dwell, we all despise most Mondays, with the exception of Labor Day and Memorial day. Best to get on with it I suppose...

On Saturday night, Hunter and I went to watch a friend's cousin's band play at Toby Keith's new restaurant and bar, known as "I Love This Bar" due to Toby's hit song with a title of the same name. Y'all! (and PS I cannot even begin to think of a better time to use this phrase) This place is super cool. Excellent open concept and layout, yummy/quality food, and an overall ambiance that promotes a honky tonkin good time.

The band is The Grand Central and they were on point. They did great covers of old and new songs and had everyone hopping around both on foot and bouncing in their chairs to the sounds. Hunter took an awesome shot of them in all their glory:


We got to the place a little earlier than when the show was starting, so we grabbed a booth and munched on some goodies.


The second picture would be me waiting happily for the mmm mmm mmm good food we were about to give a try.

I went with an appetizer as my meal, which did not disappoint. I give you, fried Macaroni and Cheese served over a tomato/basil/cream sauce:


We had a wonderfully fun time so I very much recommend boot scootin' on over if you find yourself visiting the International Drive area of Orlando. Also, if you get the chance to see The Grand Central play live, do it. You won't be sad.

Now tell me, what did you do with your weekend days?

Until we meet again,

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 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
