Hey ya'll!
It's New Years Day and I'm sitting on the sofa with my FH watching music videos. ( I know I said I wouldn't post anything new today but I absolutely can't contain myself since this is the first time in about four months that there is positively nothing written on my calendar for me to do today! Whoo Hoo!) So, I really hate watching music videos because I am convinced that it slowly kills your brain cells but there is something sweet about being able to watch them with my FH. Actually it's kind of turning out to be a somewhat intellectual experience because we are able to discuss some of the trends and sociological effects of what we see (the sociologist coming out in me) on the videos. Anyway, since I'm half watching and half on the computer I figured this would be a good time to post a little something about my love bug!!

I'm more of a bullet point kinda girl as opposed to the paragraph type so I'll highlight ten random fact about my baby that I love:

  • I love him because he keeps telling me he's going to cut off his braids for the wedding. hahaha, the wedding is 2 weeks before our 30th birthday so he says we gotta grow up. LOL

  • I love him because he's from Detroit and since I'm from Oklahoma, he has a little edge that kinda sexy.

  • I love him because he prays and although he wasn't big on praying in front of my family at our big Christmas Dinner, he took my hand and braves through it. He even got the "pat on the back" from my dad when it was over.

  • I love him because he is a good listener. And unlike me, he is very good at retaining information.

  • I love him because he wakes me up every morning with a text message that says, "Good Morning Beautiful!"

  • I love him because he always gets mad when I let my gas tank get below the half (or especially quarter line).

  • I love him the because he always grabs my stomach and tells me he likes my belly.

  • I love him because he road trips with me even when he doesn't feel like it.

  • I love him because he's loyal and genuine.

  • I love him because he's happy when he's eating my cooking.

Plant-Based Eating Plan - Meal Prep (11/19) - 1 Week Trial

Hey Corner Clique!!

So it's mid November and while Thanksgiving and Christmas are still approaching, I have my eyes set on another upcoming holiday....... New Years Eve!!

Living away from my family means that there are some years when I am unable to go home for the holidays. This usually happens especially if it's the holiday season before our big family reunions, which happen every three years. This coming summer, we will be headed to Sacramento, California for our big gathering!!

I guess that brings me to my why..... I hope this doesn't sound shallow but..... I really want to wear (and look good in) a sequin dress for New Years Eve. Not just this year, but year after year, after year, after year, after year..............................Let's be real, sequin can be very unforgiving, it's just not one of those fabrics that everyone loves. But it can be so beautiful and festive during this time of year. Sequin makes me happy!! :-) Therefore, I'm going to work ha…

Perfect Music In My Shower.... And Its Not My Own Singing LOL

I could not have been more excited to receive this package in the mail today!! It finally came..... My AncordWorks Bluetooth shower speaker in Army Green. And while I'm not the easiest critic on new technology because I've tried some duds in my day, I could wait to rip open the Amazon box on this little ray of sunshine. It didn't disappoint!!

I had been considering purchasing a BlueTooth speaker for quite some time but there are so many on the market these days that I had a hard time narrowing down my choices. I considered a "Beats By Dre" brand but ultimately, I just don't believe the hype about them. I think they are too expensive and are mostly recommended based on the celebrity fan fare associated with Dr. Dre and the brand. While I am, of course, a fan of Dre, I wasn't about to drop over $100+ bucks for a simple speaker, especially considering I probably wouldn't use it daily.

As you can see, I've been living in the stone age using this ancie…

BUSINESS REVIEW: Panera Bread, Greenville, SC (Haywood Mall)

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! I had the very best experience today at Panera Bread at Haywood Mall in Greenville, SC. Managers Marc, Susie, and Keith and the rest of the staff made it very hard for any other Panera to impress me more than they did today!! I am officially #TeamStore654
Panera also has this new "Fast Lane" and "Rapid Pick Up" system that makes the experience super convenient and easy! Who doesn't LOVE easy? With the fast lane, you walk in and order from a Kiosk (read: ipad) and everything is right there in words and pictures for you to select. With the "Rapid Pick Up," everyone with a mobile device essentially becomes a cash register. You order through your phone and when you arrive to the store, your order is waiting for you in the "Rapid Pick Up" section. Easy Breezy!

THE GOOD: ~ Free Cookie for using the Kiosk - This might only be for a limited time but every time I used the kiosk today, they gave me a free cookie! No explanation neede…
