SOAR Retreat Recap

Hey Cuties,

I'm taking a break from my Halloween talk; to share the #SOARRetreat with you. The Retreat took place Oct. 16-18 at the Trump National Doral Resort in Miami, Florida. The weather was pretty decent, the venue was stunning and the speakers were really inspiring. I have implemented some things that I've learned already but I still have a lot more work to do.

Event Recap: 3rd Annual Naturalista Hair Show

Buy t-shirt: Hey Cuties, We are mid-way into the week on this fine Hump Day, hope all is well. We've had fall like temps in the DMV area with splashes of sunlight. I officially rocked my Uggs over the weekend and my fringe moccasins yesterday. Hello Fall, how you doing? I have 11 more days until my 36th birthday.

Building My Empire: Blogalicious Recap Part I

Hey Cuties,

How was your weekend? Mine was very low key which I totally needed. I didn't leave home on Saturday and that just doesn't happen for me. Sunday my son had his first soccer game so we had to go out and cheer him on.  He did a great job and scored a goal; followed that up with a good Sunday dinner and the Emmy Red Carpet.  I am looking forward to a low key week thanks to the Pope coming into town and disrupting all of Washington, DC for three days.

Diner en Blanc DC

Hey Cuties, How was your weekend? I had an amazing weekend; I mean I didn't get paid as scheduled but yeah amazing.  I've been uber excited about Diner en Blanc since I saw the pictures last year. How could such fab-ness take place in my city and I not know about it. Well that wasn't going to happen twice. I'm all about getting dressed in all white and dragging a table and chairs around to a secret location. Umm yes, sign me up.

Fire & Rescue Special Ops – Howard County, MD

Hey Cuties,

Your girl was out trying to be a firemen at the Howard County Department Fire & Rescue in Maryland. Spoiler Alert: I'm not cut out for the job. I've always had respect for the fire department but I have even more respect for them now. Do you know they do so much more than just putting out fires? Don't get me wrong putting out fires is no walk in the park. They also help trapped animals, work medical emergencies, accident scenes, water rescue, hazardous materials, collapse rescue, mass casualty emergency response and more.

The Biggest Comeback

Hey Cuties,

I worked The Biggest Comeback Event over the weekend, I'm talking 32 hours in two days. Add in 8 hours of sleep and that was me. I was a bit exhausted but I loved every minute of it. In a former life I did meeting planning and I absolutely loved it. It's been years since I've had a chance to do an event but I never lost my mojo.  I picked up right where I left off and it felt good. I think I might be on to something folks. Remember THIS.

This event was a very intense two day event filled with amazing speakers. Some of the speakers were in the room and others were online. You could attend in person or watch the entire event via a live stream. They had all options available okay. I was working so I couldn't sit in on all the speakers but three of them in particular left a lasting impression on me.

Hey Girl, how you doin? My name is Charlie last name Wilson.

Happy Friday Cuties!

This has been a slow week on the blog. I've snapped out of my funk but I lost my writing mojo.  I'm on the train headed to NYC to enjoy some R&R.  Who am I kidding, I will be in the streets all hours or the night shopping and hanging with my Blogger Boo's.  That is resting to me, I will eat my heart out and share all the fat snacks with you on the blog next week. To catch me in the moment make sure you follow me on Twitter & Instagram.

Corner Bakery Grilled Flats

Hey Cuties,

I am talking about food again, this time it's more healthy but still really good. Last week I attended a media event at Corner Bakery. Look any type of business can do a media event and when its food involved you best believe my face is in the place.  It has been crazy hot in the DMV area but Mother Nature was kind to us as we settled onto the patio of the Corner Bakery in Arlington, Virginia.
