Fighting sickness

Fighting sickness

I declare 2014 the year of nose blowing.  I get a cold and fever.  Then a week later, the fever comes back and it turns out that now I have a sinus infection.    This is the source of germs.  Dirty dirty chillins.  Forget biological and chemical warfare.  Just let a classroom of chillins free […]

Another Hair show with Bradford @WellaHairUSA @OssoLounge

Another Hair show with Bradford @WellaHairUSA @OssoLounge

This week, I got to chit chat with an old friend who I used to see weekly.  Our regular meetings were a time of bonding and refuge in the trials of tribulations of parenthood.  I haven’t seen her in over five years and from what she sees of me on Facebook, she asked what I […]

Dan's first opera of Nabucco @OperaCarolina

Dan’s first opera of Nabucco @OperaCarolina

Charlotte is cultural.  We have an opera, symphony, several museums, and many theaters.  We even have another layer of management for our city’s culture called ASC.  This is what I call management.  That’s me and Artur (but actually, Artur and I or me or I or me). Bradford has to sport a fake beard and […]

Shop 'Til You Drop but not for Christmas

Shop ‘Til You Drop but not for Christmas

It’s this time of year that I hear everyone talking about all the shopping they have to do.  Shopping is a wonderful activity but when done under duress and obligation, it becomes not so fun.  Thankfully, I don’t participate in Christmas shopping because it officially has ZERO to do with Christmas or the meaning of […]

Artur's Debauchery Ending at Thirsty Beaver

Artur’s Debauchery Ending at Thirsty Beaver

This is a before (the debauchery) shot.  Dan and I chill on Artur’s upstairs hallway / piano audience chair. Josh and Heather enjoy the selfie stick.  Only take this caption with context above.     Here are the results. As you can see, I did not concern myself with keeping the selfie stick out of frame. […]

Haunted Gingerbread House Kit and Halloween decorating

Haunted Gingerbread House Kit and Halloween decorating

The rents try out Pike’s Old Fashioned Soda Shop.  Growing up, Pike was my neighborhood pharmacist. Thanks to B, we have an inflatable dinosaur. At my house, we don’t do TV.  The chillins come over and the floor is instantly littered with legos and crafts. It doesn’t take long before the instruments come into play. […]

Watching UNCC grow

Watching UNCC grow

Sometimes you just need a new Accura II. Every year or so, I go back to my alma mater and recruit for interns.  It’s an interesting experience to remember that I am no longer a student.  I am the “adult from industry” in their eyes.   They address emails to me as “Mrs. ” and […]

First Bistro Trip at American Girl Doll Store in Charlotte, NC

First Bistro Trip at American Girl Doll Store in Charlotte, NC

Are there starving children in this world?  Did our country recently go through a recession? Obviously not since we just built an American Girl Doll store at Southpark Mall. We forget the doll at home so we get a loaner.  MMe picks a medusa looking blonde AKA typical Southpark shopper. What a nice touch.  The […]

First trip to Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC

First trip to Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC

I have lived in this state my whole life except for when I lived in the midwest, southeast, and Europe, but besides that, NC is home.  It took me a few years to get over going to Gay-ville.  I had to boycott it for a while just like Will & Grace.  After all, any town […]
