History

It’s crazy to think that life was so different…20, 15, 10, 5, 1 year ago.

My tagline for my blog… “riches to rags and dealing with it” was my way of handling the downward spiral of my life… fiscally. As for my morale and overall happiness, it has definitely been an upward bound. Never in a million years did I think that I’d be able to be in a situation where I was able to pay for my own luxury car. The two slips below are the BMWs that were leased under my name. Granted I was with an exer and the car was initially for him, my mom ended up covering the payments when they car came back to me. This is a funny sidenote… I remember that loser tried to claim that it was “his” car but covering the rest of the name minus the B to prove it. First of all, without credit in this country, you are nothing.

My situation right now isn’t ideal. I’m still working, however I am able to take accountability in the monetary choices I make. I think hard before a purchase. If my cart starts off at $2,000, by the time I actually purchase something, it has dwindled down to one item or nothing at all.

I’m completely transparent with Bear because he’s been the one really assisting me in keeping me accountable. If I don’t money, I don’t have money. I need to budget and allocate accordingly.

Life is completely unexpected.

LAX -> KCI

I had to change my flight to fly out on Friday instead of Thursday to Kansas since I had been out of the office for a week in Paris.

Bear’s brother got married over the weekend in Missour/Kansas. The ceremony was held in a beautiful Catholic church and the reception was at the Kansas City Country Club near the Country Club Plaza.

It was an amazing weekend with the in-laws and especially with my husband.

He had been gone all summer and things got a little rough but I think we’re finding our way back. Cheers to Q4 and the near end of 2017!

LAX -> JFK

We left Vegas at 6pm and got home around 8pm. We took a nap for an hour and I packed quickly to go to New York.

Our flight to NY was at 11:30pm and we landed at 8:30am on Sunday. Bear is temporarily moving to NY for 10 weeks and it didn’t hit me until I got in my Uber to leave for the airport on Monday evening.

Las Vegas Bachelorette 

Bear’s friend was getting married in Vegas and their respective bachelor/bachelorette parties were held prior to the wedding day. I, of course didn’t want to miss out on a chance to party in Vegas so I joined the girls at Tao and Marquee on Thursday and Friday. Wedding was at the Planet Hollywood Chapel on Saturday, which I saw Bear for the first time the entire weekend. My dear friend Gordo helped with the table and cabana service on the party days.

Quick Stop @OddfellowsNYC

Before heading to Indochine for our last date night dinner, we had some time so we decided to stop by our favorite social media influencer’s top ice cream spot. @FoodBABYNY

We got one waffle cone to share… carrot cake + corn bread ice cream. It was as delicious as it sounds.

#WithBennyD in AZ #Scottsdale

On NYE we drove to Scottsdale, Arizona for an engagement/NYE party. Bear’s college friend is having a small destination wedding so they decided to combine the celebration of the New Year and their commitment to each other.

We woke up early and headed east, but on the way we stopped by the outlets!

I blew my entire $500 gift from grandpa in an hour. I could’ve spent more but Bear put me on a budget. 🙁

I found a few amazing pieces that I cannot wait to wear! Yippeeee!

It rained most of the day and all night and into the next day in Arizona.

It was super cold and not amusing.

I wore the same dress from my holiday party… I purchased it with the intention of wearing it for NYE and possibly my 35th birthday.

We had a great time, though the hotel we stayed at was sketchy. I was able to get a really nice photo in my raincoat. 😛


Tailgate @USC

I got to visit my husband’s office for the very first time… during my 2nd tailgate of my life.

I didn’t enjoy the tailgate as much as I should have… reasons to be kept unknown.

Next time, I’ll need a flask filled with vodka. AND early arrival.

#BearyThirty

My husband turn 30 few weekends ago. I asked him what he wanted to do and he said, “I want to go to Kansas.”

Okay.

So here we were! With his family and friends and enjoying his birthday as if we lived here!

It was relaxing and nice. My gf JL and her bf JH came from NY to celebrate it with us.

Happy 30th Bear!

@SkySpaceLA #DTLA

It was the grand opening of the observation deck at #SkySpace #USBankTower in DTLA. I had it in my calendar months ago for the slide and about two weeks prior, I went on the site to get tickets. I wished I had a go pro but I didn’t need one at all. I was upset at the fact that we weren’t able to hold anything (phone) in our hands while sliding down. The cool part about it was that they took a photo of you coming down the slide. Just like at an amusement park! When we had all came down, we went to the kiosk to look at the photos. Of course, mine was the only one that wasn’t showing. They tried to mess with it for over 15 minutes and then I asked to speak to a manager. I nicely said, “I waited in line for over an hour and paid $30 to go down a slide and not be able to get a photo? I’d like to go down again.” He obliged and took me back to the slide, cut in front of the crowd and I got to go on again! This time, my photo came out! I was most appreciative of their accommodation and so happy that we as a family got to experience such an amazing part of our city. The space is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Even my husband who’s scared of heights enjoyed the visit. I can’t wait to come again and go down the slide over and over again when there is no line!


 






#HowtobeaMAN pt. 2

Twice in one week… When you insist on having your wife take your car, please have the tank filled so she doesn’t have to go through the trouble of stopping by a gas station. After the tire incident this made me so furious again, in the am on my way to the office. In the am, I said I was going to take Maximus. He should’ve just let me take the Prius since I just filled up the tank the day before! He was super insistent on me taking Betty White. As soon as I got in the car, I freaking had fire coming out of my ears. Seriously. I hate things like this… and he knows it. I hope I got mad enough at him for him to remember never to do it again. 😛

Why I get annoyed… #howtobeaMAN pt.1

So, we landed at LAX and when we got in our car, the tire light was on. That evening, we got home around 12:30am and had to go to the office the next day. That week, I needed to take Maximus because I was driving to Calabasas. When I got in my car, I was immediately annoyed. My husband, the “man” of the house should have taken car of this knowing that I was taking the car that week. He had a day or two to check on it. I mean… isn’t this why I got married? So I don’t have to do these things myself? Especially if he’s the last one that drove it?
