Las Vegas: a city of colorful lights, scantily clad women, and sounds of slot machines dinging. But did you know it can also be the city of first experiences? My husband Richard turned 40 recently, and I wanted to provide him with a Vegas weekend of first experiences like never before.
Are you thinking about applying for a better position but don’t know if you should make the leap? Read on why I applied for a job I knew I wouldn’t get and the experience I gained in the process.
In my line of work, I have staff scattered across Mesa, Arizona, Austin, Texas and Clinton, NC. I recently headed up to the Clinton, NC office for staff touch base and research. I had made this trip last year and opted to stay in Raleigh, NC. Last year, this commute was a little over an hour each way. It was last year I decided, NEVER AGAIN! I am used to crazy traffic but Austin traffic vs. NC is very different. In Austin, you can wait an hour just getting from North to South Austin or 20 miles. NC you are traveling long distances of nothing but trees. Anyway, I digress. Back to Clinton, NC.
I will be the first to admit I am not a beauty guru, not even a little bit. What I will admit to is being a mystery box addict! It is like getting gifts every month, and who doesn’t love gifts?! I have been a subscriber of both IPSY and BoxyCharm for some time now. I love sampling makeup without the financial commitment of buying it outright. Monthly subscription boxes fit my lifestyle very well.
Are you new to cruising? Here are a few essentials you should consider when preparing for your cruise.
- Luggage tags.
- Although you are able to print out luggage tags on paper it becomes difficult to keep them on during the embarkation process. Your bags are manhandled by porters and your luggage is placed in a holding bin along with hundreds of other bags. Clear luggage tags you find on Amazon are a cheap investment that will serve you well for many trips.

Yesterday was date night! After many long hours of work, a date night was what I needed. Deciding what to eat in Austin, TX can be a black hole of endless options. In our search, I decided it would be a steak night. Texas is, after all, the land of cattle, and beef is a solid choice.
At first, we thought to go somewhere low-end like Texas Roadhouse. I mean, who doesn’t love their fresh rolls! As we mulled over the ideas and names of steakhouses, we decided to head to The Domain. It is a newer area in Austin, full of shops aimed at clientele above my pay grade. Needless to say, we ended up parking and window shopping. We ended up at Fleming’s Steakhouse. As we walked in wearing our t-shirts and jeans, I knew we ran the risk of being turned away, since we didn’t have a reservation, and it was a Friday night. The hostess greeted us and said she could seat us in about 30-45 min. We were in no rush, so why the hell not.

Oftentimes, people book a cruise months in advance and countdown to the exciting day, called embarkation. My husband and I booked a cruise back in January of 2017, sailing out of Miami onboard the Norwegian Jade. It was “Star Trek: The Cruise II”, hosted by ECP. Waiting for a full year would have been brutal, had we not taken some other cruises during that time.
My husband is a HUGE Star Trek fan, so when he found out there was a cruise that catered to Trekkies, he jumped at the chance. It was Star Trek all day and all night, and even haunted my dreams when I went to sleep!
