Life Lately “Bae Where you at?”

Shot-73Disclaimer: This post is not a relationship post – so sorry no tea here!  The revolution will not be televised.

The past few weeks have been a little all over the place – but I’ve been enjoying every minute of it.

As you know I have a 9-5 in HR — I recently got more responsibilities added to my plate (promotion), which I am very happy about – because I’ve prayed for this. Most of my work days I’m stuck at my desk going through my list of things to do. When I come home I’m dog tired and I don’t even want to look at the computer so it’s been difficult to get blog post together.

Even though I’m not rolling out blog post – I do take notes in my phone when I’m waiting or in the few spare moments that I do get.

When I’m not working I’m enjoying my summer to the fullest – from late night dinner dates with the girls, to hanging around the house to even doing an adult thing and joining a book club! I can honestly say that the group of friends I have around me right now are absolutely amazing! They keep me grounded, cheer me up and support me like I’ve never knew to be true. You guys can thank them for the title of this blog — hilarious inside joke!

I moved and I had been preparing myself mentally for this new place. I want to make sure that everything is in order (as much as I can control) and this place is reflective of me and where I’m at in my life. The décor shopping process was just that a process – so be prepared for me to share some of things that I found out along my journey.

As for things to come, I have so much hope for the future – new opportunities, new partnerships and growing through it all.

For my tried and true followers – I’m still here! I have a few things coming up and hope that you surely enjoy it, if not be sure that you give me your feedback.

Tre Chic | Military Green Moment


Military green or Olive green has been recently catching my eye. It started with some work pants from New York and Company and then it proceeded into a swing dress from Target and now this green skirt.


Shopping Target’s clearance rack is a labor of love. I’ve learned that if you go first thing in the mornings everything is pretty organized, but later afternoons – good luck. During a random shopping trip – when I wasn’t suppose to be shopping for clothes – I found this gem on the clearance rack for only $9.99. I couldn’t pass it up!


I decided to pair it with this off the shoulder top that I also found on the clearance racks at Target last summer and my favorite heels right now, from Fabrik (also featured in my Spring shoe guide).  The options with this skirt is endless, because there are so many colors that you could pair with it.

I always like to visualize the different options I have when I purchase an item. This one I thought of date night, girls night, or even out being cute.


Skirt // Top #1 // Top #2 // Top #3 //Shoes 

** since the top that I’m wearing is no long available – here are three other options that would just look equally great with the skirt

Phone Snap Roundup


Heading out of town for the weekend so I made sure that my Greens were with me!

It’s rare that my best friend and I get together without her kids – so when we get the chance we definitely enjoy ourselves with some good food, good drinks and great laughs.


Recently saw where ColaTownFoodie posted about Hampton place deli and I had to go get a Crabwich with ranch feta for lunch. I miss the good ol days of working downtown and being able to walk there for lunch.

My Day | Played Hookie

Working a 9-5, being a full time student, blogger, spending time with family and friends can wear anyone out. So I decided that I needed a break to just do whatever I wanted to. I read somewhere that playing hookie was good for the soul. If you are going to play hookie make sure you are doing exactly what Y O U  want to do and how you want do it. This was my train of thought the day I decided I needed to play hookie.

Phone Snap Roundup 

Saturday mornings in Columbia are made for Soda City. A couple weeks ago Ashley, Jace and I headed down to grab something to eat and check out some crafts. I was craving Nachos so we had to split them because I didn’t want to be a pig and eat them all.

These are two of my go to drinks as of lately. Not so much the Dole Shake, but the Premier Protein is my favorite. I’ve been making an Espresso and this shake over ice instead of going to Starbucks when I’m craving an iced coffee. I highly recommend the Protein shakes.


My brother came into town a couple weeks ago and for some reason we always end up at a Mexican restaurant. Publico is one of my favorite’s here in Columbia. You have to try their Mexican Street Corn – it’s sooooo good! And who goes to eat Mexican and not get a Margarita???


If you follow me on Instagram (I suggest you do if you aren’t already) then you would have seen this photo. As you know a goal is to grow within my faith and this daily devotional has been an huge help – this was sent to my mom from Daily Bread, because we read them and donate to them.


I just thought this was the cutest picture of Jace and Tyson – after the pool, Jace needed a nap and Tyson just wanted to the iPad. Love spending time with these two – just missing my Jaiden and the day would have been complete.
