Planning Your First Trip with a Guy

So the story goes…I was feeling overwhelmed. It had been over a year since I took a vacation.I started making silly mistakes with my work and feeling like I would cuss someone out over the simplest infraction. Yikes! Well, it turns out this guy I’ve been dating (we’ll call him ViC) was in need of a getaway too!

I’ve only been seeing ViC for a few months but we both agreed that we knew each other well enough to the point that it wouldn’t be “weird” to travel together. I was pleased to handle all the logistics! Neither of us had ever gone out of town with a romantic interest so so here’s what I did to make sure that we had a good experience. Continue Reading

May Mini Haul: My 4 Favorites (Where are the bargains?!)

Since it’s the end of May I thought that it would be a cool idea to share my favorite purchases of the month. FYI – I generally hate shopping, specifically for clothes. People get bug eyes whenever I say that and just last week a man told me that I was the first woman that he ever heard say that. He just couldn’t believe his ears.

Still, I had to do some shopping this month for a trip that I took to San Antonio, Texas. Along the way I picked up some really cute things that actually sort of kind of make me want to shop more often. Yikes! This post will feature a few of the purchases that I loved the most. I will also share which places had great prices. Let’s get this party started! Continue Reading
