Birthdays, Mardi Gras Balls, and Sky Falls

Oh how much I love a good hiatus! Enjoying these pauses and waiting to blog until I have something to say has truly made life MUCH simpler. For the last half of the month of January it’s been busy, busy, busy. I feel like I’m in my 20s 😅 Haha, jk, but 2023 sure has spun into a different gear. Let’s get into it 😊

10 Years And Counting…

Every year me and the hubs make an intentional attempt to celebrate our anniversary. We usually go on a trip with just the two of us to have some alone time and enjoy the memories of another year of marriage. This was our 10 year milestone and though it had been a pretty challenging year up to the point we got to vacation, it didn’t stop us one bit. Care to hear all about it?

Bday Downtime At Woodhouse Day Spa

In my previous blog post, I wrote about my trip to Medieval Times for my birthday. That was only half of my celebration. The next day hubby surprised me with a massage booked at my favorite down time spot Woodhouse Day Spa. What makes this place so special? Read on to find out.

Welcome To Lockwood

My husband has been raving about Lockwood for weeks now. It’s not just a new bar addition to the Magnolia street strip here in Fort Worth, they are a full on distillery with their own line of liquors! The drink options are as unique and inviting as the atmosphere. I’m sure this will be added to our date night go to’s rotation. Here’s my first experience at Lockwood 😁

Who Is Lou?

Have you met this guy? If not, he goes by the name Lou Charles. He’s a Fort Worth based rapper that the mister and I met several years ago while checking out local talent at the back then venue called Live Oak. From the jump Lou has shown some crazy charisma in his artistry so when he hosted this last Louapalooza as usual, we had a blast!

Magic On Magnolia

I like magic…and it’s not just because I’m black lol! Magic is a glimpse into the realm of wonderment. It gives me the chance to not know it all and be pleasantly surprised (something that if ya know me is quite hard to do). But all jokes aside, this local experience really takes the cake.

Back It Up

Wow it’s been some months! I know I have a tendency to go offline, but to be fair, I really suck at being online because I don’t do it right. My bias for doing and documenting has eluded me. That’s why today is the day I’m going to down load my back log of adventures that have been sitting in my phone collecting figurative dust! Shall we?

Officially Home Owners

fullsizerender

One thing the hubs and I cannot deny, is the constant work God does to bring things to fruition in our lives. That is no different for us in the search and purchase of our first house. If anyone has doubts that God isn’t very present in daily affairs, hear our testimony of how we came to own our home…

Good Eats: Angie’s Bikkles

img_6365

One of my first introductions to Jamaican style flavors was a great spot over in Dallas called Elaine’s Kitchen. They had everything from fall off the bone ox tail, curry goat, amazing jerk chicken…you name it they had it. The only small problem I had was this place was it being in Dallas. I’m a Fortworthian and I am LAYYY-Z. Like when it comes to going anywhere, if I can’t find it locally, chances are I’m just not going lol!

A couple of weeks ago, I was hunting trying to find a spot for me and a friend to meet up for lunch. After searching on Yelp, I see Angie’s Bikkles pop up. What caught my attention was all the wonderful reviews people had left online. My mind was made up, I was going to need to try this spot out! Continue reading “Good Eats: Angie’s Bikkles”
