    { 23 comments }

    Not going to lie...while I always love and appreciate seeing my parents, visits home have gotten exponentially more fun and relaxing since they moved to the beach. Prior to moving to Florida they lived in Atlanta for a few years and Houston for a few years before that. Both cities were great to visit but [...]

    It's only Wednesday but I've already hit up two new Charlotte restaurants this week. Before I share my experiences with these restaurants let me give you my take on the Charlotte restaurant scene as a whole...I do not love it.

    Happy Father's Day! I'm doing this weekend a little backwards by spending it with my mom but we did call my dad today to say hi and wish him a happy day! Fun fact, I was born on Father's Day so I always joke with my dad that I was the ultimate gift. I can [...]

    During my stay at The Sanctuary on Kiawah Island I had the great fortune to have dinner at The Ocean Room. It's quite a special dining experience.

    Good morning! I'm blogging from my grandmother's screened porch. One of my all-time favorite places to be! :D We were up early yesterday morning to get on the road. I packed a bowl of banana oatmeal for the drive. Which I ended up having to shovel down in about 5 minutes because Brandon stopped for [...]

    I tried so hard to resist it. Ignored the media, ignored all of my friends comments on Facebook and Twitter, even ignored my own husband's rave review. Today, there was no stopping this craving. Oh yes. That would be the new Chick-Fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Let's look at it and all its deliciousness a little [...]

    After NINE solid hours of sleep last night I feel like a completely new person. I had reached the point of exhaustion and a good night's sleep was exactly what I needed. My energy levels were much higher today and the on and off headache I've had for the last five days finally went away. [...]
