So, I’ve been away a while (48 days to be exact) and I am going to try to stop with the hiatuses. I have talked about my crazy work travel schedule in previous blogs. Well, that combined with a bunch of personal travel and a hectic personal life have resulted in no time to work on my sweet little blog. In all reality, there will be another hiatus at some point, but I swear I am trying to avoid that. Even when I am not able to post here, I try to keep my Instagram and Twitter updated, so check those out.
This was my second time in Chicago and I was so excited to go back and have more time to explore the city. During my first trip I was in and out in less than 24 hours; this time I had two full days. Needless to say, I was beyond excited and felt so much more prepared.
Me and fitness have an on-again, off-again relationship. Sometimes we are on great terms and see each other all the time, and others I am scared to go within ten feet of a scale. Lately, I have not wanted to go within ten feet of my scale.
In a lot of ways, I have Memphis to thank for the woman I am today. While my hometown is hands down the house that built me, Memphis is the town that made me an adult. If you want to force yourself to grow up quick after college, move 2,000+ miles from home. I promise, it’ll do the trick. I have learned a lot since moving here (like how to hang curtains and change a tire on my car) and continue to learn new things every day, but that isn’t the only reason I appreciate the city of Memphis as much as I do. Memphis has completely inspired my love for travel and exploring new places. I want to share some of those things with you all. Soooo, today I am talking about my favorite touristy things to do in Memphis!
It’s April and Spring is in the air and so are super cute clothes all over the place. Hands down, spring is my favorite type of the year for clothes. It’s not too hot and not too cold, so the options are endless. I can wear pants one day, a dress the next and shorts the day after. My closet loves this time of year and my wardrobe hates it… I rounded up my favorite pieces for this spring, so check it out below!
Baseball. America’s pastime. Without a doubt my favorite sport. I should clarify it is my favorite sport to watch, not to play. In all honesty no sport is my favorite to play. My hand-eye coordination is below that of a five-year-old’s, so I am normally more of the sideline cheerleader or team mom than the player. Anyways, I love watching baseball. And with the season just starting, I have been thinking about by favorite team a lot.
I try to eat salad pretty much everyday for lunch. Obviously I go rouge sometimes and eat barbecue (bless you Commissary), but I try to eat salad every day. With that being said, I gotta mix up the ways I eat my lettuce or I will get really bored. I have a million different salads that I make and I am going to share them over the next few weeks. Up this week, is a yummy breakfast style salad.
Recently I visited a place I can’t say I ever thought I would visit… Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My job requires that I travel on a very regular basis and to a lot of places I would not normally go, including Milwaukee. And while I was not excited for the very cold temperatures that are normally associated with Wisconsin, I ended up LOVING my time in the city. Plus I packed a lot of stuff into like 4 hours of inconsecutive free time…
A couple weeks ago I talked about my favorite places to shop affordably in this post. Having go-to pieces from those places to wear to work quickly became a necessity to me. It was also necessary that these items all worked together to make getting dresses easy. So here we go, here are my five go-to work items.
There are exactly two cities I have visited and instantly felt like this is a place I could realistically call home. The first is Seattle (shocking, I know) and the second is Boston. Much like Seattle, I don’t know what it is specifically about Boston that I fell in love with. Maybe it’s the history. Maybe it’s the pride residents have in their city. Maybe it’s the endless food choices. But most likely it’s a combination of a bunch of little things. I am by no means a Boston expert, but I can still share my awesome experiences with y’all!
