Happy Black Friday!!! I hope you're finding some awesome deals :) I'm holding out for Cyber Monday, I can't stand shopping in a frenzy. Keeping it short and sweet today...I've been finding the best over-sized coats thrifting! It's so cold here so they're coming in quite handy. I'm already over my curls but I had fun wearing them for a few days lol. Without fail I get I look like Whitney Houston when my hair is curly. Not mad at that tho. Whitney is a legend, I don't care what you say about her personal affairs, that voice was one of the greatest of all time!!! RIP Whitney boo.
Tomorrow is my high school 10 year reunion, even though I see most of my class via social media. I'm so excited to spend some time with everyone tomorrow night. So cheers to Springbook High School class of 2003!!! The best class of course ;) Please other classes refrain from claiming the best class title!!! Ain't nobody got time fa that lol.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!! So in the spirit of the holiday I'm talking food today on the blog. Last weekend Trisha, my son, & I headed to Bayou DC for some creole comfort food. As soon as we walked in, the warm and cozy atmosphere had me sold, not to mention the attentive friendly wait staff. We ordered drinks of course, because that's the first thing you do when you're dining out. You know how I am about my drinks lol. But anyway, EVERY appetizer had me drooling, I was craving creole. So my inner foodie was in full effect, we ordered 5 starters, and they didn't disappoint.
After debating about what I wanted to eat, I decided to go with the Shrimp & Grits. And damn it was AMAZING...like smack ya mama amazing lol, I probably would've smacked her if she tried to take my food. Love you mom hahaha. Desert was next, I'm not even a bread pudding fan, but me and my son tore that pudding up!!! I felt bad for Trish cause we ate most of it lol. Overall I loved Bayou and can't wait to go back to try more things on the menu! See the full review over on Trisha's blog HERE. Have a great long weekend!!!!

It's such a shame all the fall leaves are dying off and winter is really starting to show up here in DC. Mainly because I hate the cold. All I can think about is a warm weather getaway!!! I haven't been anywhere notable in ages and I'm dying to get out of the country.
I'm starting to get depressed thinking about all the traveling I want to do. I spend so much of my spare time looking into beautiful places I'd like to visit. But between working, blogging, parenting, and budgeting for all my projects. Travel is taking a back seat.
WHY CAN'T I JUST HAVE IT ALLLLLLL!!!! Well shit I actually can. So I'm sacrificing shopping (which is hard as hell), unnecessary purchases, and saving up all my pennies. Life is about experiences, so you guys will see some heavy traveling taking place in 2014. I'm done worrying about how things are going to work out. Just gonna start doing!!!
Now about this look...decided to bring my curls back for the moment. Wearing a thrifted jacket, hat, and bag. Zara jeans and my Steve Madden heels again.
Happy Monday ya'll...thank goodness it's a short week!
