Spring Is Here, Here Are The Activities In The DC Area

Hey Cuties, Spring is here, and we are ready to get outside and do the thangs.  Spring Break is in two weeks and we need to keep the kids busy.  I have a list of activities going on in the D: DC M: Maryland V: Virginia area. If you are located outside of the area I have a list of activities and resources you can use to locate the fun. The great thing is the fun can be for the family, geared towards the kids, Girl's Night Out, Boy's Night Out and Date Night.

WanderAway just arrived, it delivers the world to your door in a box

Hey Cuties, I have a fun subscription box I won that I have to share with you. My prize is from WanderAway Box and it is so cute and creative. By now you are likely familiar with subscription boxes and how they work. I've seen a variety of subscription boxes but a travel subscription box is a first for me. If you are a traveler you would enjoy this, if you aren't a traveler than this might be even better for you.  This is a great way to bring travel to your door step.

I found the Sex and the City Secrets at the New York Public Library

Hey Cuties, We are fresh off of a winter snow storm fail here in the DC area and so I officially quit winter. Before I wash my hands of it 100% I had to share my trip to the New York Public Library. It was a freezing cold day and multiple layers were very necessary. I am a huge Sex and the City (SATC) lover and so this tickled my fancy a bit more than the average person.  For those in the cheap seats who have never seen the movie Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Big (Chris Noth) had an elaborate wedding planned at the New York Public Library. (Spoiler Alert) In the movie you see her discover the location and then jilted on her wedding day.

Will you experience the new Mitsubishi Outlander SEL?

Hey Cuties, I'm talking cars today and reminiscing a bit about my Cousin's Trip. You already know Key West was Bae because of this and this and this. I gave you tips on how to plan a cousin's trip, those tips can be used for planning any type of group trip. What we didn't talk about was six grown women, five days and luggage. *Cue up Erykah Badu's Bag Lady*. Prior to our trip we talked about doing carry on only. Some were down and others simply couldn't understand how to do that while traveling for five days. 

#FatSnacks Friday: Key West, Florida

Hey Cuties, I am still talking Key West on this #FatSnacks Friday because Key West was so lit. I've recapped what we did on our Cousin's Trip, I shared our incredible dessert experience in Key West and now *drum roll* the incredible hella fat and delicious eats from Key West. Sit back, loosen your buckle, untie the drawstring on those sweat pants and prepare to salivate. You should probably eat while you read so you feel better about what you are going to see. I'm only telling you because I care.

5 Reasons Why Our Cousin’s Trip was Bae

Hey Cuties, I had a nice five-day vacation with my sister and cousins in Key West, Florida. This was our 2nd Cousin's Trip; we had our first Cousin's Trip in Williamsburg, VA back in 2004. Yes, it took us 12 years to get together again. I come from a family of girls, I am one of twelve grand-kids and of that twelve, nine of us are girls. Of that nine, seven of us make up the core grand-kids. By that I mean we are all 35+ and we grew up like sisters. The others are just as important but they are much younger. Can you imagine the hand me down rotation in a family of girls? Items frequently entered and exited a home twice.

National Civil Rights Museum : The Lorraine Motel #StJudeBlogTour

Hey Cuties, Prior to leaving for the St. Jude Blog Tour in Memphis I had one mission and several anxieties.  My mission was to visit the now iconic Lorraine Motel where Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot.  I'd been to Memphis many years ago but didn't have a chance to go. This time I was going to make it my mission although our days were full sunrise to sunset.  After receiving the agenda I was thrilled to see they were taking us there for a tour. SCORE!!! Now one might wonder why in the world St. Jude would take us to the National Civil Rights Museum. Stick with me and I will spill the tea. Look for the , this is Day one of the #StJudeBlogTour

What I Learned from Traveling Alone

Hey Cuties, I had an amazing three days with St. Jude Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  I met a lot of dope people and we are forever bonded by our experience.  I will be sharing my experience in bits and pieces but know that it was incredible. It was also monumental one for me for a different reason. As much as I travel, as many places as I go this was the very first time I've traveled alone. I talked about doing so last year and ended up traveling with my cousin. It was an adventure, but a necessary journey.
