Well, hello there! If you are here then I see you survived the food coma that is Thanksgiving dinner(s). I don’t know about you, but I ate like crap. Mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, butter rolls–any carb-filled, fattening thing you could have ate, I ate. I am trying to recover from the horrendous eating and […]
The older I get, the more complicated life seems to get. I think it can be even more difficult sometimes when you’re a die-hard black-or-white thinker. I will openly admit that my self-esteem has never been at elevated levels, and I don’t want to put myself down more than what life has already dished at […]
With the weather predicting it to be kinda of cold this upcoming week, I thought the idea of a soup would be so nice for lunch this week. I tried my hand at making a taco soup, and I gotta say it turned out yummy! I would make this again for sure. Add some jalapeno […]

Okay, so this is technically not in Las Vegas, but it was a part of our Vegas trip.
This, for me, was one of the highlights. I come from green-treed North Carolina (although right now, the fall foliage is beautiful!), so to see dirt and red rock mountains was a beautiful change of scenery. If you are taking a trip out towards Las Vegas, make the time to stop here.
Las Vegas is seriously a land of its own. I come from a quiet, little country town nestled in the mountains of western North Carolina, where we have one red light and a McDonald’s. I knew what to expect coming into Vegas and just the desert area in general, and in some ways it was […]
Some days are definitely better than others. I feel I definitely earn my gold star adulting stickers and then other days… What happened? On the days that are not so good—from general anxiety to stress to being hangry (which is very real, trust me) and everything in between—social interactions can be a big struggle for […]
