Financial Confidence Through The OnUp Experience at Suntrust Park

December 7, 2018

If you’re local to Atlanta, have you been to the new(ish) SunTrust Park yet? It’s new to us, since we lived in California for a year during the time it was being finished, but I couldn’t wait to check it out when we got back to Atlanta. The new stadium and surrounding shopping and activities have been all the buzz for Georgians. Although we attended our first Braves game at SunTrust Park in the spring, we had yet to check…

North Atlanta Wedding and Event Venue: The Manor Golf & Country Club

November 12, 2018

One thing I will never get tired of is exploring my own city. Obviously, Atlanta proper is no small town, and things to do are a’ plenty, but North Atlanta and the suburbs around Alpharetta are equally exciting. We have been living in North Fulton near for almost a year now, and we love it. There is truly a surplus of things to do from shopping to dining and I can’t imagine living somewhere else. This area feels like the…

You guys might have seen on social media that I was at the Beaches Resort in Turks & Caicos the week before last. That trip will have to be split into a couple of blog posts, because it was that packed with fun. I was invited to attend the Social Media On The Sand conference on a tropical island with a chance to listen to inspiring speakers and meet with brands in my niche. Did I mention I would be…

A Road Trip In The Pacific Northwest

August 14, 2018
Pacific Northwest Road TRip

Can we talk about manifesting things into reality for a second? I have been talking to friends and my husband lately about really wanting to see the Pacific Northwest. Specifically, I really wanted to drive up the Oregon Coast, see Portland, and then road trip up to Seattle. I was very specific about this addition to the ‘ole bucket list. You can imagine my complete disbelief and elation when I was invited to work with Mazda on a campaign that…

A Road Trip To Chattanooga, Tennessee (With Kids)

July 9, 2018

And just like that… Chattanooga, Tennessee (with kids) is in the books! My exploration of the Southern gems within driving distance of Atlanta landed me in Chattanooga this past weekend with kids. This time, I took the whole crew! Yep, all three kiddos, the husband and I trekked the quick two hour drive just over the Tennessee line to see what Chatt-Town had to offer. (Or as the kids are calling it nowadays: “Nooga”.) As usual, everyone on Instagram came…

A Weekend Solo In Nashville (Where To Stay)

June 18, 2018

Wanna hear something crazy? I have lived in the South almost all of my life, and I have never spent a weekend in Nashville. I’ve driven through many times, but I have never experienced Music City in all it’s glory. To be totally honest, I wasn’t sure if it would be a favorite for me. I like my trendy restaurants, modern boutiques, and quirky coffee shops. Country music isn’t really my bag, and I’m definitely not a stereotypical Southern girl.…

I can’t believe we have been home from Scottsdale, Arizona for almost two weeks! I have been traveling a LOT, but I couldn’t wait to sit down and get started on my travel guide. I have a group of best friends that I met through blogging. We are spread out around the country, but we make it a priority to get together as much as we can. Since our sweet Bethanie is pregnant and local to Arizona, we thought it…

Atlanta Staycation: Mom’s Night Away

May 16, 2018

Moms: have you ever fantasized about a night away from home in a hotel with room service? Um, hi. I have. In fact, when scanning my mom groups on Facebook last week, it seemed that it’s a very popular item on the Mother’s Day wish list. Sometimes, it would just be nice to have peace, quiet, a bubble bath, and food delivered straight to my bed- right?! If you’re in my area, look no further. I found a perfect spot…

Does anyone else need vacation from vacation? I can’t believe it’s Friday and we have been home for five days! Where did the week go? As much as I wish I was on a beach right now, it’s a beautiful day in Atlanta, so I can’t be too mad.…

March 15, 2018
Jekyll Island Girls Trip

Did you catch my Instagram stories over this last weekend? Charlie and I went to Jekyll Island with Chanel from Chanel Moving Forward and her daughter for a girls weekend. We thought it would be a great place to take the girls for a couple days of “Mommy and Me” time. Jekyll Island is off the coast of Brunswick, GA and right about five hours from our home in the Atlanta area.…

Things To Do In Atlanta With Kids: Georgia Aquarium

February 14, 2018

Thank you to the Georgia Aquarium for sponsoring this post. I’m not going to lie, finding things to do in Atlanta with kids was not always a pleasant chore for our family. Since Charlie was born, we would have grand ideas about outings with our three little ones and hopes for a picturesque day out in Atlanta, and were often met with disappointment. It can be tricky to find things that are appealing to Grayson AND Charlie, with their age…
