Prolific Blog

Today, I am told that my blog is prolific and with my limited vocabulary, I have to look up the word. I find it interesting because my blog fits both definitions. 1.  Definition 1 – My blog is actually producing many offspring as I type this.  It’s been a long journey but this blog started [...]

Speech by @AmyToensing @TheMintMuseum and dinner @Vapiano

The Mint Museum offers lovely champagne and strawberry receptions for special people.  I am not one but I get to tag along for the fun.  I am a Mint Museum member – just without these special benefits. Bilal is thinking about art. I am thinking about the free champagne I get to drink. We head [...]

From the dunk tank to the art museum

Some days (and peeps) are more cultured than others. Today I have swimsuit wearing chillins in the my backseat. I take them to the dunk tank. Then we all clean up to go to the Mint Museum.

Wells Fargo Golf Tournament Players Party @CityTavern_

Jerry invites me to the Golf Players Party at City Tavern  in conjunction with the Wells Fargo Golf Tournament.  I’m not sure if I want to go so I don’t get a ticket ahead of time.      I walk up to the door (still dressed in my hair modeling show clothes) and the bouncer asks [...]

Career day - does this make me a grown up?

Career day – does this make me a grown up?

Brendan invites me to speak to his eighth graders in a Career Day event.  Somewhere along the way, I am suddenly an adult…. with a career.  His school especially is interested in having a female speak about being an engineer. I speak to five different groups of eighth graders and the one question that consistently [...]

Online art business... coming soon...

Online art business… coming soon…

  No surprise… I decided to start another business and website.  This started when I was super inspired by my visit to the Charleston Gibbs Art Museum. Stay tuned because once I launch my online art store, I’ll be hitting up readers to buy!      I even dragged my artsy friends – George, Bilal, and [...]

Brunching bunch

Brunching bunch

What time is brunch?  Leonard has to Google this question after he invites us to brunch.  If aliens visited our planet, they would see that we eat A LOT of brunch.  Americans have completely obliterated the proper breakfast and lunch and lazily merged the two. Don’t let the perspective fool you.  Size matters. We each [...]

Singing the National Anthem at the new Knights Baseball Stadium

Tonight, the school sings the National Anthem at the new Knights Stadium in downtown Charlotte. We start with some fruit appetizers over at the Trademark. We enjoy the view of sun streaming through the clouds. The kids are ready to sing! Here’s the interesting part.  The choir actually faces away from the audience so that [...]
