• Let’s Go to Carnival… No Passport Required

    I was first introduced to Carnival while seeing Rio. Ok… no I haven’t been to Brazil; however, it was added to my bucket list after watching the movie with the kids lol. In many of the Caribbean Islands, Carnival is celebrated throughout the year. Each island adds their own unique spin,…

  • Is Cheaper Really Better?

    I’ve always been the type of person to pay for what I like. If convenience is an extra charge, here’s my card. I approach travel the same way. However, being a family of five, sometimes that’s not so beneficial. No one stretches the dollar like a mother. You must cut corners…

  • 15 Hours in Dallas

    One of my favorite movies as a child is Home Alone. My favorite scene was when the family was running through the airport trying to catch their flight. I can remember thinking, that looks so fun and exciting. I didn’t take into account the thoughts that were running through the McAllister’s’…

  • A Moment of Peace in CUBA- Meet Reggie !!

    The universe has a way of showing us things that are destined for us. I like to think of them as little signals in the world. Sometimes, they’re presented very subtle and then there are those times where they practically smack you in the face. At that point, you can choose…

  • Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don’t

    As the all time great Jay-Z so eloquently put it: Men Lie, Women Lie, Numbers Don’t. At any give time you will find me quoting somebody’s rap lyrics or movie line. Really if you think about it though, it’s a very accurate statement. Everyone lies, some more then others, but I…

  • Let’s Start With Some Basics

    My original idea for this post was to give you the latest in flight deals, but then I thought… How can I give you flight deals without going over some of the basics!?… If your’re a frequent flyer and already familiar, this may not be the post for you (But don’t…

  • Road – Tripping to Charleston

    To wrap up our Valentine’s Weekend and another excuse for me to take a vacation, the Outliers decided to take a road trip to… Charleston aka “The Chuck” In Preparation: I absolutely hate packing, but I hate doing laundry even more. The two go hand in hand when your vacationing, at…
