My blogger friend, Connie, invited me and a few other fellow blogger friends to have dinner at Tupelo Honey Cafe last Friday evening.  It was a chance for us to get together, chat about life and the happenings with our blogs, and of course, to eat some good food.  Connie had previously eaten there and had raved about Tupelo Honey Cafe so much so that Tupelo Honey Cafe invited us to come back to have dinner on them for the purpose of reviewing the restaurant.     We arrived and Connie gave each of us gifts – a mug with our first initial and a fun clutch for a night on Read More ...

Chi Tank (c/o Athleta) :: La Viva Capri City Pant (c/o Athleta) :: Heels (ShoeDazzle) :: Bag (Marshalls)  Necklace (Target) :: Bracelets (The Limited) :: Earrings (Target)   What's more enjoyable on a hot spring or summer day than taking a dip in the pool?  For most of my life, going to the pool was not part of my regular summer routine, because I could not swim.  I didn't avoid the pool, but I was never the first to suggest it as a summer activity. My sister took swim lessons when we were younger, but I was never interested in taking lessons.  About 6 or 7 years ago I decided Read More ...

Malik is at the restaurant and asks if Tee-Tee is going to help bus tables.  Tee-Tee says he's consumed with the Cluck Truck issues.  Tasha shows up and says the guys were a no show.  Malik Read More ...
