Memorial Day Sales you won’t want to miss, day drinking, I have too much sh*t, BTS and duchess lessons in this week’s “The Wrap Up”
Family trip to Oklahoma for Memorial Day. Yea, for 8 hours in a car with 2 parents and 1 dog. In short: Pray for us y’all.
It’s 12 o’clock some where in the world. Day drinking at a’Bouzy (strictly for research and work purposes). In all seriousness, stay tuned for a fun and informative post coming soon.
Garage Sale from Hell! Getting my stuff (and my life) together for a mega garage sale. Holy sh*t! this is a lot of work. And I have waaaaaay too much
stuff junk. Seriously considering creating a how-to-post on planning and executing a flawless (we hope) garage sale. Mental Note: must read “The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” STAT!
One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is, “Who takes your pictures???” Currently, about 85-90% of the time, my friend, Christine of Swish + Click Photography has the extreme pleasure of capturing all the awkwardness that is me on digital film. Lemme tell you, she works her magic (or swishes her wand) and makes me look good.
For those times when she’s not available or I just need pics pretty quick, I take and edit my own photos with my DSLR camera (which I highly recommend) and Photoshop Lightroom.
Behind the scenes: Here’s two pictures from a recent post, How to Make a Damn Good Spicy Margarita. Annnnd . . .
*BTW: if you haven’t tried a spicy margarita or this recipe, you are missing out.
I’m just say’n . . .
Comment below, if you would like a quick tutorial of how I edit my pictures on mobile phone?

Links of the Week
Duchess Lessons & “Momma we made it!” into the royal family, that is. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said “I do”, and I felt like I said “I do” too. So now that they are happily wed, there’s an interesting list of things Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex can no longer do. Number 5 might be a deal breaker for me. Are they serious?
Travel bucket list item: The Rainbow Mountains of Peru. How am I just hearing about this magical colorful place?
“When I wake up in the morning // And the alarm gives out a warning // And I don’t think I’ll ever make it on time . . . It’s alright ‘coz I’m Saved By the Bell” pop-up themed restaurant?! Picks up the phone to make reservations.
