Vegas baby!

Here's a pic from Club Moon at the Palms hotel featuring the homie Jackie & yours truly. We kicked the night off at the roulette table where we flipped our initial bets so we knew the night was headed in the right direction!!

We danced the night away to old school & new school tunes and caught an impromptu performance from DC's own Wale. Another unforgettable Vegas night...


Jackie's brand new yellow suede pumps came in the mail. I'm hating so hard right about now...

...everything is bigger in Texas!

Here's a pic of my BFF Marisabel and I enjoying yummy margaritas at a spot that I don't remember the name of.

Everything truly is bigger in Texas!!

Even the beers are jumbo sized and the plates of food are enormous! I enjoyed plenty of open bar margarita receptions on work time (kept the drinking to a minimum, though). Even the local Denny's had a "Texas menu" which featured traditional Mexican dishes - which I adore.
I'm going to have to do some serious calorie counting now that I'm back in DC...

On the road again...

Here's a pic from this past Thursday that was taken during the cab ride to my hotel in San Antonio, Texas. Kinda made me want to jump on the road and head to Mexico, but I didn't. ;-)

I'm kind of obsessed with geography & maps in general but this is part of the USA that I've never touched down in ... until now.

All I See Is Fireworks...

So, for many years the 4th of July was my favorite holiday. Now-a-days, every day is a holiday so I don't pick favorites. I found myself repeating Mariah Carey's 4th of July song and reminiscing of the good ol' days where as kids, we would climb up to the roof and watch the fireworks display at Shea Stadium. Man, I miss being a kid in Queens.

This year, we watched the National Fireworks on the Key Bridge in Georgetown - which connects VA and DC. Of course I couldnt get the best pic to capture such a great show, but enjoy!
