Hey Cuties, We are still knee deep in winter but I am thinking warm thoughts like sun in my face, movement in my waist and my toes in the sand. I am thinking of Miami which I affectionately call the 305 — a short flight to one of my favorite places. This time I have a bit more motivation to get there. I love to eat, but I also love to dance like nobody is watching. Who am I kidding; watch and enjoy the show, the Jazz in the Gardens to be exact.
Hey Cuties, This was a long politically charged weekend and I have the joy of living in the DC Metro area. We had thousands of folks in town for the Inauguration on Friday and millions on Saturday for the Women’s March. I made Friday and anti-political day — I just didn’t want to deal with it. Babe and I dropped the kids off and set out on a Day Date. We went to see the new movie, Sleepless with Jaime Fox. I wasn’t familiar with this movie but Babe usually has good recommendations, so I rolled with it. We followed that up with lunch, scooped up LittleCuteLips and then cheered the Man-Child on at his basketball game. Although, we ushered in a new administration on Friday, I focused on those that mean the most to me because of my sanity.
Hey Cuties, I've been getting my DIY on as of late; my crafting mojo is in overdrive right now and I'm going to ride the wave. With that said this is another craft, I've been wanting to do for a long time. Pinterest will make you feel like you can make anything. You don't need any prior craft abilities to make this collar. Fashion week is starting and I will be rocking my own looks.
Hey Cuties, Last week was a busy one for me; LittleCuteLips turned 5 on Thursday and Babe and I spent the day with her. We went to see the movie Trolls which was really cute; Justin Timberlake did all of the music. Saturday was the big day, we entertained family and friends in our home. I DIY'd 80% of the party and I was so please with the outcome.
Hey Cuties, I'm on a serious fashion kick right now. Not just fashion but DIY fashion, I love making things my own. The Golden Globes were on over the weekend and the fashion was killer. New York Fashion Week is coming up and I've got ideas, some are new ideas and others are ideas I've been holding onto in my mind. I'm oozing with creativity and I want to get it all out.
Hey Cuties, It is freezing cold here in the DC area; I'm talking 19 degrees cold. I bundled up and braved the cold so I could go out and meet an incredible guy. His name is Anas "Andy" Shallal; he is an artist, activist, local philanthropist, and entrepreneur. He is famously known in the Washington, DC area as the owner of Busboys and Poets. He is an Iraqi-American that has lived in the Washington, DC area for over 50 years. He and his establishment have become true pillars of the community.
Hey Cuties, I shared my 2017 Goals with you. I've set up my planner and I'm living up to my word for the year three days in. I am someone who is easily inspired but I also fail to execute my vision 100%. Last year my word was action and I did that, but I need to take that action to the next level.
Hey Cuties, New Year's Eve is in three days and I am excited about rolling over into a new calendar year. 2016 has been incredible for me. I experienced a lot of first and checked off several bucket list items. Some things I didn't even have on my bucket list but were more than bucket list worthy. Thank you for joining me on this epic journey of "action".
