This has been long overdue for me and my friends, but just last week we finally saw the Tony award winning musical, Jersey Boys. I was with a smile the entire show, it really was very entertaining. Even if you’re not familiar with their music, just the beat and the happy vibe of the musical …

I am not exactly the most outdoorsy person in the world, so three weekends ago was indeed, a treat! My co worker, Ana Banana dragged me to go hiking, yoga, and wine tasting.

Mischief Managed!

Last week, I crossed out one item from my 30 things to do before 30 list. As I blog about this, I am still in glee. The happiness still resonates to this day, just because I’m kinda nerdy like that. Together with my sister and her hubby, I visited The Wizarding World Of Harry Freaking …
