For my birthday, my sweet boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Nashville for this weekend.  While there, we are going to be seeing Luke Bryan and FL-GA Line in concert, visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame, and much more!  I'm excited for all of those reasons and because I get to break out my fall clothes.  Not to mention, I get to do all of this with the most amazing boyfriend!  All of me loves you Fernando!  ;) <3

Now to packing, it's always difficult for me to pack for cold weather because I never have enough room in my carry-on suitcase.  For this trip I am going to be checking a bag!  Thank God for Southwest's 2 free checked bags!! lol  By the way, look for a blog post later on Packing Tips, but for now lets get ready for Nashville!!!!

Things that I am especially excited about:

- My new booties that I got from HauteLook - if you haven't signed up for this, Do It!
- My new black studded purse from TJ Maxx - I'm a Maxxinista!
- My black polka-dot tights that I have had for about 2 years and have never worn.

<-----I almost forgot about this!!!! hahaha
        (No, I don't own this but it's pretty funny)

Here's to a whole lot of Yeehaws and a fabulous weekend with my man! :)


The Bests Ever (So Far)


My 26th year on this beautiful Earth is about to come to an end (on Saturday). I hate to see it go, not only because I don't want to get older, but also because it has been the best year of my life, so far.  All in one year, I have experienced and tackled so much.  Since October 12th last year, I have:

- I have conquered my fear of heights by going Skydiving.
- I have become an Apple fanatic. 
- I fell in my love with my best friend. <3
- I have visited New York, for the first time.
- I have seen my Lakers play, for the first time.
- I have visited Chicago, for the first time.
- I met Victor Oladipo.
- I met Mike Greenberg.
- I moved to Florida (still can't believe this one - lol).
- Established my spot as Christian's 2nd favorite and 2nd most loved person. This one is clearly the best one of them all! :)

Along with all of these highlights, I have would include stronger friendships, new friendships, stronger family bonds, and a more optimistic outlook on life. 

I wonder what 27 has in store...? Can't wait to find out!!






The Bests Ever (So Far)

Life Threatening Decision

Some may think, how can any life threatening decision be associated with your "The Bests Ever."  Well I will tell you.  My entire life I have been afraid of heights.  I don't do ladders.  I don't do balconies twenty stories up.  Yet, I jump out of airplanes at 30,000 feet.  This one, 5 minute airplane jump gave me the greatest rush I have ever experienced in my life.  You feel inspired, like you can take on the world.  While you are soaring through the sky, you are forced to enjoy the beautiful thing that is life.  If you are ever inspired to go skydiving, definitely do it with a group of friends and get it on tape!  Anytime you feel down or defeated, watching that tape well quickly change your attitude.  

"I jumped out of a plane! I JUMPED OUT OF A PLANE!!"

Life is about taking chances, you should try it once in a while. 


Warm, Yummy Goodness

Thanks to Pinterest I got an idea for a warm drink that isn't loaded with calories and caffeine.  It's real simple, and only has THREE ingredients. Ready?!

Honey Cinnamon Milk

1 cup of vanilla almond milk
1 teaspoon of honey
2 pinches of cinnamon

Warm the milk in the microwave for about 2.5 minutes.  Remove, stir in honey and 1 pinch of cinnamon. Sprinkle 1 pinch of cinnamon on top.  And, you're done!

It is light and warm.  It isn't loaded with calories like hot chocolate.  It won't keep you wired like coffee.    Perfect warm treat. Enjoy!!
