Thanksgiving

So I spent my Thanksgiving in China. As you all wake up to start the turkey in the oven and the potato mashing extravaganza, I'm closing out my exciting day. Never fear, I DID get a little bit of turkey!     I am so thankful for the opportunities that joining the CEM faculty have … Continue reading Thanksgiving

Fall Fun in J.Crew

Fall was always one of my favorite seasons, however, for the past, (near) decade, it's always been so travel heavy that I'm never home. Often, Nate and I are not even around for Halloween. This year, I decided I finally wanted to take advantage of living in Virginia and head out to Cox FarmsĀ in Centreville, … Continue reading Fall Fun in J.Crew

Lilly Pulitzer by the Potomac

The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale has always been a little bit of a cluster.

Draper James at the Montgomery County Fair

Every year, the Montgomery County Fair arrives. I've been a few times over the years, but it had been at least 5 years since my last visit. I think fairs are a lot of fun, so I suggested to Nate that we make the trip up to Maryland this year. Going on a Sunday, the … Continue reading Draper James at the Montgomery County Fair

Lisa Vanderpump and Caesar Milan with Hunter Hayes Event in Vegas

For the first time in many years, Nate and I were in Vegas together for a non work event. Our friends Jesse and MJ were getting married, so we flew in for the weekend! As it was also Nate's birthday weekend, I had scheduled a spa date at Canyon Ranch, and dinners at some of … Continue reading Lisa Vanderpump and Caesar Milan with Hunter Hayes Event in Vegas
