Fridays at the Marina

The weather has finally gotten both bright and warm hot! So what better way to spend a Friday with some friends (oh, I certainly do love company) and some food (I love food just as much as I do company). So it was off to Marina Bay in Quincy we went.

A Credo

"I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny."

— Coco Chanel

Go Flacca (that's skinny en espanol!)

Zoe looks incredibly skinny in this movie but she's still taking names and kicking ass!

I like that she's a female lead of color, I won't say black because I'm sure she prefers latina, in an action film. That's a come up if I ever seen one! Will you see the movie? What do you think of the preview?

NIkon FE

So on one of my many trips to the Goodwill Store, I spotted an orange Camera Bag behind the register... Being of a curious nature I asked to see the bag and the rest was- History! Inside I discovered a vintage Nikon camera. This was too good to believe.

So I've put up my Canon Rebel X (SLR- of course, the goal is after I know how to take a picture, I'll develop my own rolls.) for a bit and I'm enjoying the ins and outs of this camera. The roll of film I got developed from this camera yielded a few beauties...

These are some of my favorites! Enjoy!

What do you love?

Love Game

I've lived in DC off and on since August of 2002 when I transferred to Howard University! It's been a love affair for the ages with good times, good eats, and better people *fights back developing tear*. There have definitely been some not so fun times too, so as I gather my belongings from DC and commit myself to really being in Boston (I mean I made it my official location on both fb and twitter) I still feel drawn to everything I loved about this city. At the end of the day though, it lacks that one element, the one little thing- which makes home home, my family. Somehow I know this love-affair is not over, not just yet!

DC Weekend

I'm in DC for a few days! During my visit, I'm making sure to catch up with a few of the girls!!

Bridesmaids was just as funny the second time around with Cece.

Hopefully, neither one of us ends up in the street, like this, on our wedding day!

Brittney, my former co-worker cracks me up with her brutal honesty. That's one get together I won't soon forget.

Tianna graduated and her dad Dale had me cracking up!

I thought I spotted Sheree from the real housewives of Atlanta
I tried to sneak a pix, but no luck!

Good times with good people!

Have a Sweet Sunday

Just wanted to wish you a sweet Sunday day! Got half-a-dozen cupcakes this morning from Red Velvet in Chinatown (Washington, DC). Next on the agenda- a fashion show with one of the sweetest ladies I know! Hope your Sunday is filled with good eats and good peeps!

Let Them Eat Cake

A few weeks ago, I celebrated, along with my fiance and our families, an engagement party of sorts! Everyone knows you can't have a good party without good eats and even better desserts. So BK and I were off to Boston's historic North End!

I have to admit, this was exciting, I mean as a native Bostonian I've probably seen 1,000,000 'Mike's Pastry' pastry boxes. Who doesn't know to stop in a get a canoli from Mike's when you come to Beantown?

Well BK and I were on our way to Mike's, our maiden voyage, when what did we encounter... It was like the release of the new iphone, but a lot less orderly! We decided to skip the chaos and discover what else the North End had to offer.

We came to a shop with a cool neon sign and an ordely line!

Inside we were treated to a visual foo-gasm (that's a food orgasm!)

like this...

And this...

We ended up getting these 2 beauties ( rum raisin cake and a cheesecake)

On our way back to the car the Mr.

pointed out that the freedom trail, which most people associate with Downtown Boston, also ran through the North End!

Both desserts were equally spectacular and we're making plans to stop by Mike's for canolis real soon!
