Gifts @MrsRenfros

These two items I cannot live without. This goes on my food, breakfast, lunch and dinner. I use one or the other or sometimes both.

I’ve been on a nutrition plan for a week now and for lunch I use both.

Make sure you subscribe to my YT to see my progress!

How To Eat A Drumstick @GusFriedChicken

My vlog went live last week and while I was editing the video, I realized how much I craved Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken.

We visited the location while we were in Kansas in December. We were there for a wedding and I really wanted to do a feature on a non-LA establishment. However, during our meal, the waitress informed us that Gus’s opened an LA location.

Now I’ll have to go visit!

@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!


I Hate Sequential #DMV

You know me! I had to get a personalized plate. I forgot who it was but I asked what I should get and they said “BORAMOM” which would have been really funny, but I opted not to. I wasn’t sure if my mom would be okay with a personalized plate but I still did it anyway. I saw another white X6 drive by with a personalized plate and I felt uncool. lol

You’ll have to wait 12 weeks to see what it is, if it gets approved. I’ll have to wait 12 weeks and be basic… 🙁

I love my @PolarGlobal Loop 2! #swarovski

Not only do I love things that are white, but also products that sparkle and efficient. This new Polar Loop vibrates when it needs me to take a walk, get a call, calendar invite, morning alarms and notifications. I would die without it!

No Need To Iron! #Steamer

My purple steamer broke and even though I have lifetime warranty, I decided not to turn it in. I should’ve just gotten this to begin with after I saw Jo using it. I just gravitate towards anything purple, I can’t help it.

This is the best thing ever and we can travel with it. Thank GOD Jo will be bringing hers to Paris cause I don’t have room for in in my luggage. 😛

Jet Skiing @ExperienceTCI!!

We went with another couple from our hotel… a Detroit Pistons player and his gf! Kentavious Pope! No idea who he was but he was tall and I knew he was a bball player… Bear knew exactly!

I wish I bought my cell phone with me while we went all over the island. I was scared it would get wet but I should’ve brought a ziploc.

The water is the most amazing thing… Warm shallow and clear as any swimming pool water! 

My eyelashes got the worst treatment but I didn’t care. We were going average 40-50mph!

I’m glad I didn’t get my own, I would’ve been trailing behind!

#DW @BarefootDreams

Bear had to stop by work late in the evening. I was ready for bed and didn’t want to go but I did need to go to the bank (ATM) so I joined. I figured I would be able to sit in the car so decided to wear my robe out. 😛

What I didn’t realize was that I would need to walk to the car and walk back to the apartment. People could see me in public with a robe! This was so wrong for my “look” but I didn’t care. I never want to get out of this robe! AND I asked Bear, “is it ok if I leave the house like this, people would see me in the lobby and elevator,” his response, “who cares!”

Luckily, I didn’t run into anyone! 🙂

Picking Up @JackStackBBQ

I was hoping to eat in but we ended up ordering out.

And if Bear had coordinated, I would have brought my purse with my ID so we can both have a Bloody Mary, but he didn’t . He didn’t tell me that he was thinking about ordering a drink while we wait. So now I have to watch him drink because I’m a law abiding citizen.

We’ll have to go visit another before I leave./home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/0d7/19008169/files/2014/12/img_8364.jpg



#SpaDay @Airebanosarabes

Why aren’t there bath houses like this in Los Angeles. Korean spas suck!

This place was heavenly! The bath house was co-ed and decked out in marble. Several different temperature tubs, steam rooms and the best massage I’ve ever gotten. No, really, I’m serious. By far the most amazing massage I’ve ever gotten, from a man named Raymond. It was 30 minutes long but it felt like eternity and I didn’t want him to stop.

This is a must do when in New York.


Is doing my best, really doing my best?

Over dinner, Bear was telling me about his day and how he got a ride home from a professor. I asked how that even happened and he told me that they were having a conversation by the bus stop. The professor was sharing his experiences with his students about how they dislike him because his class is too hard. He added to it by telling Bear that although the class was difficult, the students always came back telling him how much they learned. Bear started to tell him a story about a difficult class he took at KU. But then got interrupted because the professor’s friend called to give him a ride. That’s how Bear got home tonight.

My curious little mind asked him what his story was. (I forgot Bear likes to talk excessively when he gets into talking, it’s rare, but it happens). 😛

He started to tell me about the class he had in college and how after the first couple of assignments and tests he kept failing. At the end of the semester, the professor told the class that the grade on the final could be 95% of the final grade. Bear decided to meet the professor and he ended up studying for three days straight and got a 97% on the final exam, passed the class with an A and blew away all the other students in the class. Even the ones that were studying throughout. He continued to explain that it was the only class where he retained any information. Not only did he learn the subject but he pushed himself so hard that he discovered that he was able to succeed and do his best if he put his best foot forward.

He knew then that once he put his mind to anything, he will be able to do everything. The biggest lesson for him during the four years of college was to do the best that he could.

As he kept talking, I drifted off and thought about my accomplishments. (None to date).

I assume I always try my best, but honestly, anyone that knows me and how I grew up, knows that I didn’t have to try much. Everything was given to me or it was easily achieved. I never tried my best and I never pushed myself.

In the midst of my thoughts I heard Bear still talking about how he does that currently with golf. He practices hard and when he gets to a point he’s satisfied with, he stops and gets bored. He lost me after that again. I kept thinking. HARD. I can’t ever think of a time I tried so hard that I accomplished something so amazing. Or maybe I have but because I’m so hard on myself that it’s not worth remembering? The truth is, I probably really never did anything the best that I could.

By the time we got home, I really wanted to pull myself together and try at something. I needed to push myself and I needed to do it well. I WANT something to show for. I want SOMETHING!

I have always had a lot on my plate at once. Especially now, I MUST GET SOMETHING DONE… SUCCESSFULLY!

Even with #doingJim. I get to a point I’m satisfied and even though I have wallpapers of flat/toned abs, I can never push myself to get there. 🙁

I need more ambition.
