Mary Jane Falls- Mt. Charleston

There is so much more than just the strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. About 30-45 minutes away from Las Vegas lies, Mount Charleston. During winter, it calls for snow and during spring it calls for beautiful cool weather. A nice break from the Vegas heat, that’s for sure!

My husband, Robert and I, hiked at Mary Jane Falls and boy was it beautiful! Talk about a hike though..

Sleepless in Seattle…



When you have kids, your priority becomes them, right!? Of course it does! As much as it is important to also keep your relationship/marriage as a priority as your kids, you still end up putting your needs or shall I say alone time with your significant other on the back burner. Ok, well I don’t know if it’s like that with everyone, but that sure does apply to us.

Fast forward to 7 years later, when my husband says “lets take a trip to Seattle, Washington WITH NO KIDS!” WHAT!?!?! My first instinct was NO KIDS???, but then I say the words again…sloooowly. NOO KIDSSS??? HELL YEAH! Oops, did I say that?

March Roundup

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

It’s true when they say, as you get older the years fly by. We are already going to be in April, and before we know it, we’ll be shopping for the holidays already.

So, I want to start something a little different. I want to do monthly updates of little things that have happened throughout the month, that I’ve shared pictures on social media, and things that I haven’t shared yet. So, I welcome you to monthly roundups!

Hello, Manhattan


WELCOME TO NEW YORK!! I swear everytime I talk about New York I always think about that song by Taylor Swift “Welcome to New York”.

New York City… so many things I can say about this beautiful city! Let me first start off by saying, how much this place has changed since I last been here. I could honestly say, years ago I did not like my visit to New York. Now, I was underage when I first visited NY and was with my parents, but there was something about it then, that I did not like. Fast forward to about 15 years later, I’m back and I LOVE it!! Not only did I fall in love with NYC, but I had the best group of girls anyone could ask for by my side!!

The reason why we went to New York is because of my niece. She is a college student there, living the grand life in the city. It was also going to be her 18th birthday. So what better way spending it with all the girls from Vegas!! GIRLS TRIP!

The first 7 days of braces.. YIKES!


The life of braces…. let me start off by saying that I want to rip them out of my mouth right about now! Yep, I said that! I know, I know.. I’m being over dramatic and it will be so worth it in the end, but c’mon! At times it’s hard to eat, my teeth are sensitive, my cheeks are mad at me, and I hate the fact that food gets stuck in between the brackets and in my teeth; which makes flossing that much more difficult!!!
In case you missed it in my previous blog,  we went to California to see my aunt (who has her own office there and is a dentist (Carson Dental Care)). Long story short, I thought I was going there for a cleaning and to take care of some cavities, oh and that she did! However, I also walked out of there and driving back home to Vegas with braces too! Something I was not expecting and completely NOT mentally prepared for.

So, I thought I’d track the progress and experience of what it’s like the first 7 days of braces.
