What to do for Juneteenth 2023

Juneteenth is around the corner and many people are still looking for things to do for the holiday.  With the national acceptance of the holiday being new, I find that people, mainly Black people want to honor the day appropriately by focusing on the history.  The other thought is, lets rest.  Living in this country as a Black person can be traumatic.  Every day there is a new story of a person being harmed or killed simply because they are Black.  This is daunting to say the least, so taking a day off in this capitalistic system to rest and [...]

Visiting Bangkok Thailand

I had a cool opportunity to visit Bangkok, Thailand with my day job a few weeks back.   We had a conference there and needed representation from my department and I of course was not going to say no!  The trip was a week, but I truly was working and did not get to leave my hotel too much.  But there were a few highlights that I thought were worth sharing on this brief blog post about Visiting Bangkok Thailand. Flying Eva Air If you recall some years backs I flew Eva Air while visiting Taiwan, their homebase.  I knew that [...]

The Chevron Championship

This weekend I had the privilege of attending the first major of the LPGA season, The Chevron Championship at The Club at Carlton Woods.

Getting There With general admission tickets starting at just $20 and beautiful weather during parts of the weekend, you can imagine this event was popular! Due [...]

Houston Restaurants to Visit this March

I chilled out on visiting restaurants towards the end of 2022, but once I got back from Ghana it was ON.  I have visited so many new restaurants in Houston that I think you all will enjoy too.  Here are Houston Restaurants to Visit this March. The Lymbar Located in the Ion development near downtown, the Lymbar is a sexy bar with some unique drink and food offerings.  I visited for happy hour and opted for small bites and a cocktail.  It's cute and will likely be a popular spot for Midtown/Museum district residents. Traveler's Table Breakfast bread pudding [...]

New Year in Ghana

This is the longest I've gone without updating my blog! I've always enjoyed writing in addition to the quick social media updates on Instagram.  However, task paralysis over the last few months has done me in.  But, I'm back with an exciting travel recap to share.  I made my way to THE continent for the first time ever and as you can imagine it was an amazing experience.  I traveled for the New Year holiday to Ghana for what their tourism bureau has termed "the return".   Here are all the details about my trip below.

Houston’s Best Group Dining Spots

What is group dining you ask? A birthday dinner.  Perhaps a baby shower.  A large group dinner just cause.  Heck even a wedding or reception is a possibility at some of these places.  If you want to dine with more than 10 people, have a private or semi-private room with a pre-fixe menu, these are some restaurants to consider with my list of Houston's Best Group Dining Spots. Rather than updating my previous list, it seemed easier to just make a new one.   There are a lot of places that still make the cut offering vibes, great food and accommodating [...]

Houston Restaurants to Visit this Fall

Instagram has had my attention lately and I looked up and hadn't updated my website in over a month!  Time to fix that and share a few places I've visited over the last several months and enjoyed.  Here are some Houston Restaurants to Visit this Fall . Bungalow Houston's latest Black owned restaurant in downtown Houston should be on your list for the fall.  They are still within their soft opening period so give them some grace, but even with that caveat I'd say the restaurant is excellent.  The food, atmosphere, service and drinks were excellent.  I enjoyed everything I [...]

Weekend in New York City

At eighteen years old my older sister flew me out to New York City so I could experience the Big Apple before I started college a few weeks later.   It was one of my favorite trips EVER especially at 18 years old with no passport and few vacations under my belt.   Fast forward another eighteen years, and my sister suggested that we meet up in New York City for the Stranger Things Experience.   Y'all know if I have airline points and my PTO lines up, it is hard for me to say no to a trip! So I said yes, [...]

Planning Group Travel

While on my trip to Punta Cana, people kept asking me HOW.  How are you able to get 22 family members on an international trip.  How did you organize it? Get everyone to pay? How did y'all not have any fights or arguments??  Others would say, my family could NEVER.  I want to encourage everyone, especially Black folks to not be afraid of the family travel.  It provides an excellent opportunity to bond, have a great time and step outside of your everyday norms. Here are some tips on Planning Group Travel. WHY? What is the purpose of traveling with [...]
