Nude Shoes!!!!

Hello Lovelies!
I pray that everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I enjoyed myself this weekend.  One of my friends had a baby shower for her soon-tobe little bundle of joy in blue, I went to another friends going away party, and as always a wonderful word today (Sunday).

Here are the shoes that were featured in my looks for the weekend:

Nude DShoes
  I decided to wear this funky zebra print jumpsuit that I bought from H&M earlier this spring.  I dressed it up
with a blazer and sparkly belt....
 I took the blazer off because it got way too hot!


Sunday's Best
Today I was truly blessed, as always, with a good word!  It was about activating our Faith and completely trusting God for everything.  We were also told how important it is to dedicate some time to just talk to the Lord everyday.  We get so "busy" with our everyday lives, that we make excuses when it comes to devoting time to building a stronger relationship with God.  Church is always so refreshing and a perfect way to start any week.
Here's what I wore today:
Polka dots are cool!

Everyone have a FABULOUS week and remember to set a little time aside to spend talk to God! :)

National Hamburger Day!

Hey Guys!

So apparently yesterday was National Hamburger Day!!!! Who knew???  So I felt it not robbery to totally ruin my mornings workout with a big, juicy burger from Five Guys Burgers and Fries!!!
Their burgers were voted the best in Jacksonville and for Families, but let me tell you...I wasn't a big fan of theirs in the beginning.  When the first opened this particular spot about 2 or 3 years ago, I decided to give it a try because of the rave reviews I heard.  I was sorely disappointed!  When my parents came to visit 2 summers ago, my dad was craving a good burger so I decided to give them another go and was let down again.  Yesterday was the third go round and I guess the third time really is the charm because this burger was GREAT!

They typically have long lines and to keep you busy there are peanuts you can munch on!  You're welcomed to throw the shells on the floor....reminds me of Texas Roadhouse Steakhouse.

 A super greasy brown paper bag can only mean delicious goodness to come.....RIGHT!?!!?!!!

 RIGHT!!!  Considering my past few experiences with Five Guys, this trip was a winner!  The cajun seasoned fries were perfect!  The bacon was extra crispy on my Little Bacon Cheddar Burger (didn't look too little to me), and the burger itself was the perfect juiciness! 

I'll definitely be back to Five Guys again! 

Talk to you later!

Hey Dolls,

My boyfriend and I went out last night and I wanted to show you guys what I decided to wear.  BUT before I do that, I've got a question.....Do you ever look in your closet full of clothes and shoes and say "Man!

What's Cooking w/Trice (Carne con Queso)/ Natural Hair/ Sunday's Best

Hi Guys!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!  Mine was pretty cool.  It started off with my adventurous trip out Friday night with my friend, Bernie, a Ladies Get-together on Saturday, and a good word at church on Sunday.

Saturday I hosted a Ladies get together with the some of the lovely women from my church.  I made the dip that's always requested when I have to provide a dish for something. 
I call it Carne con Queso (Meat w/cheese)  :)

It is SO EASY AND QUICK to make.  Here are the ingredients. (rec. = recommendation)/ Estimated time to make 10-15 minutes!!!

1.) Lightly Season, brown and drain your ground beef.  (There is a significant amount of salt in your salsa and cheese, so you don't wanna over-season the meat.)
2.) Add your 4 oz. of cheese.  If you want a cheesier dip, feel free to add more. :)
3.) Add your salsa:  I usually add 3/4 but you could add the entire bottle if you'd like.

4.) Mix well!!!!! Plate and go to dipping!!!

Here is some of the other things prepared for the get together:
Tequila-Lime Chicken Wings, Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Assorted Fruit, Homemade Banana Bread, My Dip, Pizza Bites, and Cookies
 I am wearing my hair in it's natural state right now! Although I rock extensions every now and again, I really do LOVE my natural hair and the ability to do both!!! curls are pretty tight (Lots of shrinkage)

Here's what I wore to church on Sunday!


Blazer: H&M
Dress: Marshalls
Tights:  My Mommy gave them to me
Earrings: Beall's Outlet
Bracelet: Tiffany & Co.


Heels:  Betseyville by Betsey Johnson

I don't know how the weather is where you are but it's hot as the dickens out here in Florida!!!!

That's all for now guys!  I think the issue with my camera, isn't really an issue at all. It has to do with lighting so once I get that together, I think I'll be good to go!!!

Photobucket Have a FABULOUS week!!!
  • Salsa (rec.PACE: Mild)
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • About 4 oz of Cheese (rec. Velveeta Cheese)
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Seasoning of choice

I'm Back!!! No Camera LOVE... 100 Followers!!! No Love in the club...Jax Ale House!!!!

Hi Dolls!

So guesss what....I got a new camera!  BUT...I'm not sure if I like it.....might have to take it back.

 I was so excited to have a new camera that I haven't taken the time to read the manual so maybe after I do that and figure out why my pictures keep coming out blurry, I'll be happier.  For those of you who'd like to know, I got a Nikon S9100 HD camera....(Don't seem HD to me *pouting*)
I can't believe that I've reached 100 followers!!!!  Welcome!  I'm so happy you all enjoy reading my blog!

Last night my girl Bernie and I decided to go's what I was wearing:

PhotobucketI kept it really simple.....
  • Dress: H&M
  • Earrings:  Bealls
  • Bracelets:  Random

So everything in this picture came out except for my blurry face...O_o. Im at Bernie's house by the way. Her two dogs are in the background! I love them, they're so cute! Photobucket
This is my POW-POW shot LOL!!!



Here's Bernie and what she was wearing!  Get it Girl!!!

So we went out and the place was a complete DIVE!!!!  We saw it and made a bee -line straight back to the car.  "Never, Again!"is what we were saying LOL.  I remember now why I don't really go "Clubbing" anymore. 

We decided to grab some food instead....right up my alley!!!!

We went to the Jacksonville Ale House

We got my FAVORITE....Margarita's :  I had the Original and Bernie had the Strawberry.
The food was perfect for those late night cravings!!!  I had the mini-burgers and onion-rings.  The little burger bites were grilled to perfection and topped with grilled onions....mmmmmm.  The onion ring dipping sauce was delicious too!
Bernie ordered the "Zinger Mountain".  These are little chicken strips piled up on cheesy fries with scallions and bacon....YUM!!! 
Wondering why the food pictures came out better than the fashion pictures...hmmmmmmmm

Overall, the night was interesting, to say the least!  But I try to make fun out of every situation and I appreciated not having to go home smelling of smoke and my belly was full. :) Needless to say I slept like a baby! 

I hope I can figure out this camera, because I missed blogging this week.  Talk to you all soon!

Golf Anyone?

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

This week I had the pleasure of staying at the International World Golf Village in St. Augustine.  Ive always seen it off of I95 South but I've had the opportunity this week to stay there.  Im here with my job and the resort and its accomodations are very nice, as Renaissance hotels tend to be.

   Golf Anyone?!?!
I didn't take pictures everyday I was here because I was pretty busy but I thought about you all and took pictures yesterday afternoon before I went to the outlets.  Here's what I was wearing:

Im usually not the biggest fan of florals but I loved the way the dress was made and that made up for my dislike of floral prints. :) 
The hotel foyer is beautiful here.

Me acting silly! LOL!
By the piano

Oh and ofcourse... food:
This was a chicken dish served in the banquet hall  It was chicken breast with a ranch and tomato dressing, wild rice pilaf, and green beans.  It was tasty!
          For dessert was a chocolate mousse with whipped cream and a strawberry slice.  YUM!

That's all for now guys.  Talk to you all soon.
