My New Crush Update

I hope everyone enjoyed there Thanksgiving ! I can't believe tomorrow is already December , my how time flies !

I wanted to give you guys an update on the birthday weekend I spent with my new boo the weekend before last. I know you all are probably scratching your heads because I have had at least three updates on my birthday. My NYC/ AC trip and then the Hilton Head trip which was last week with my family and of course the romantic weekend I spent with my new crush !! Hahaha I know , I know but hey you only live once, so why not live it up...right ?!?!!

The last update I left you with about my new crush was me gushing about how I was excited to spend the weekend with him before I left for Hilton Head.

Well I get there and I walk in and he has cupcakes sitting there on his kitchen table for me with a card. It was so cute because he actually attempted to make me cupcakes and this is the way they turned out.

 He tried...I ended up having cupcake toppers is what I call it. I guess he didn't grease the bottom of the pan so they fell apart and he cut the bottom half of the cupcakes off and just iced the top...he is just too cute !! It meant a lot to me that is even tried. Plus they were really good !

Then we sat and watched TV for a while and he started on dinner. Now everyone that has been following me from the beginning knows that I am a picky eater and I let him know that in advance. For me to venture out and even try his food was huge for me. I requested something on the healthy side and he made it happen. He cooked a delicious spicy chicken, there was two different kinds and they were both really tasty and yellow rice and string beans and a yummy biscuit ! I was very impressed !
It looks good...doesn't it !! After dinner we drank some Sangria..which is one of my favorite wines. After that we watched some t.v and the rest is not rated PG....haha let me stop playing with you..or am I ?!!?!! LOL

Football was on that night and I was getting sleepy so I went to bed while he stayed up and watched football all night. When I woke up the next morning he was already upstairs cooking breakfast for me and he brought me breakfast in bed. He is just the sweetest ! Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day but I only eat it on the weekends because during the middle of the week I don't have time to eat breakfast. However the weekend is a whole other story and I am so picky when it comes to my eggs. I like them fluffy with a half a piece of cheese. He made them to my liking which is rare because my dad is the egg King and he made them almost as tasty as my dad so I was so thrilled !

 Everything is perfect and I really like him ! I am also thrilled because he knows how to cook because I don't !! I just bake from time to time. He said we will start having date night so he can teach me how to cook.. I think he is a keeper !!

Thanksgiving in Hilton Head

Hello All,

The birthday girl is reporting to you live from Hilton Head, SC ! We arrived yesterday on my birthday and the weather is just right ! Once we got all settled in everyone sang happy birthday to me and my parents surprised me and got me the camera I wanted !! I am so excited.

I got the dual view Samsung camera. It has a screen on the front of the camera so you will never cut off your head when you try and take your own picture which is something I do all the time. I love it !

After the excitement of my new gift, today we went on a long bike ride on the beach. It was a great work out and now we have some down time before we go to a seafood restaurant for supper tonight !

I can't wait to eat Thanksgiving supper tomorrow and spend time with my family ! I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving and don't forget the true meaning of it all, be Thankful !!

Happy Turkey Day and God Bless

My NYC/AC B-Day Trip

I am back from my mini vacation to my favorite city ! I had so much fun on vacation with my friends and family. There is no better city then NYC the energy is amazing and you need that change of pace sometimes !

I had everything planned once I arrived and as usual nothing went as planned but that is what vacation is all about.  The Borgata was so pretty... love that Casino !! There was lots to do there and the room was gorgeous ! I won 37 bucks whoop , but lost 50 ! I don't even know why I gambled that much all on the penny slots...lol !

 Our View from the Borgata Casino was absolutely amazing !!

 I love Times Square there is always a ton of people and the atmosphere is electric !  

 I enjoyed spending time with my cousin and my bff ! They are the best !

We shopped,ate and drank and that is what makes a vacation ! Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to go see the play Wicked because they didn't have that at the half ticket price booth and we didn't know that or else we would have got them online. They said they never have Wicked or Lion King half off ...so now I know for next time. I also didn't see anything that screamed my name to bring back for my readers so I apologize about that but as promised I will still do a giveaway after Thanksgiving and it will be fabulous !!
Enjoy the rest of your week..smooches xoxo

Off to Atlantic City and New York

I am so excited that my birthday trip has finally arrived ! I am leaving early tomorrow morning and the first stop Atlantic City ! I am so not a gambler but I sure will be sitting at the slot machines acting like a pro !
Then the rest of the weekend I will be spending it in NYC shopping until I drop and I am really excited about seeing the play " Wicked " !! I will being take a short Hiatus from the blog world until I get back. I also didn't forget about my readers and as promised I will bring you something back and do a little giveaway before Thanksgiving !! I will make sure it's something super cute !!

I know you all will miss me ...**wink..wink ** so follow me on twitter !! I will be sure to keep updates and twitpics for sure !

I also mentioned in my last post that I wasn't going to see the guy that I was dating for a few weeks but we actually went out over the weekend and he is just so sweet and so cute that I really realized that I like him a lot. I just haven't felt like this about a dude in a really long time so I think I was sort of trying to distance myself from him but realized I need to be open to change and give him a chance. I can't wait to see him next weekend. He is going to have something planned for me for my birthday so I can't wait to see what he comes up with !

I will leave you with something completely random. I was shopping at Wally World last week and saw this...

I thought I really like Wild Cherry Pepsi and the packaging was just so darn cute I figured what the heck and I bought it ! Well first off it doesn't taste like wild cherry Pepsi as a matter of fact it doesn't taste like anything. So it is safe to say this lip gloss is NOT popping !! Plus it dried my lips out and it has no moisture in it at all. I think this just might be for kids !!

Anyway I can't wait to update you guys when I get back have a great rest of the week !!

Wow I can't believe it is already November. My favorite month of the year and also one of the most busy months for me. Not to mention it's also my birthday month !! My friend Pinky is in visiting and I am going to try and get an update for you guys. She has a lot going on and a lot has changed since the last update.

This past weekend was fun. I went on the third date with the dude I have been gushing over. It was nice but didn't go quite as expected. I don't know really what to say it was nothing in particular it's just he is a little needy maybe and just to much. I just want to have fun right now so I just told him we need to slow down. I am not sure if I want anything to serious right now. I am taking a short hiatus from him and will see him in a couple of weeks. That is just what I feel is right for now.

Next week is finally the week I get to go up north to NYC and AC to celebrate my birthday a little early with my bff and cousin. I can not wait, I am so excited !! I am dying to shop and I can't wait to go see the Broadway play "Wicked " ! We are also going to do dinner and going out one night so I am looking forward to my long weekend away next week !

I will bring you all something back from NYC like I did last year and then I will do a little giveaway in about 2 weeks. Since we finally switched over to our new product at Gash Jewels we are going to host a giveaway for a hand stamped piece. Check out the shop and let me know what your favorites are.

Once I get back I will be home for a week and then I am off to Hilton Head to Celebrate Thanksgiving for the week and that is actually my birthday week ! Busy Busy month but fun none the less.

Chat with you all soon...

Smooches xoxo
