Fall has been teasing us for quite a couple of weeks now, don't get me wrong I am not mad about it! LOL I'm just running out of ideas on how to dress for chilly mornings and summery afternoons. Also, fall in the midwest lasts about 2 weeks and winter hits us like 10 lbs of bricks. 

Speaking of 10 lbs of bricks, if you have been following me on my IG, you have probably seen that while summer was fun with lots of travel and exciting things (like getting my new position at Target!!!) you may also know that it wasn't an easy one for me mentally. Sadly, I had to deal with a lot of issues that made me doubt myself and what I was capable of and it definitely took a toll on me. I already suffer from pretty bad Imposter Syndrome and this summer reaaaaally put to the test a lot of things. 

It got me thinking and reflecting on how much I slacked on self-care during those low moments. It is hard to think of yourself when you are down (shout out to my husband and my friends for being there for me!!) and that is ok.

Hubby and I got to enjoy a fun date night with Tillamook yesterday night. With their recent arrival to the Twin Cities, they invited us to enjoy an extremely yummy meal from their Melty Fest tour at Handsome Hog in Saint Paul to celebrate the infamous Juicy Lucy.

If you don't know what a Juicy Lucy is well let me introduce to you one of man's best inventions. It is a burger, but unlike any burger (and i've had a few around the states) this one is patty STUFFED with cheese!! Yup, you read that right!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun in New Orleans

Creating new traditions is a brand new concept in my family. Now that we are older while embracing our families traditions, we also want to create our own and while we are figuring out how to do that we decided to take our first girls trip with my mom and sister to New Orleans.

Why New Orleans? hmmm you would have to ask my sister, she was the one that picked it but it is a city that I have passed through on my way and back to and from Austin a couple of years ago and that I was very curious about. I partnered up with the cutest hotel in Downtown New Orleans called the NOPSI hotel.

Age Is Just A Number

If I had a dollar for every time I'm told "OMG are you seriously 33?!" I would be RICH! and yes, sometimes it can work to my advantage specially now that I am getting older in age... but it has been a big issue when it come to my career.

I had the opportunity to share an amazing dinner with AARP Cincuentañeros back in May while I was down in Long Beach for We All Grow where they made this safe space to talk about age, what it means and how we limit, or rather society limits us just because of our age through their campaign #Cincuentañeros. It's all about celebrating you wherever you are in live without counting the years!

They presented us with this term "ageism" and how much it impacts our day to day lives. This hit very closely to home, because I have battled for a while with how young I look.
