No Ordinary Resolutions

Can you believe it? We are here. It has taken me about two weeks to try to digest that 2017 is really here! Ummm…where did 2016 go?  It seems like yesterday I was picking my jaw off the floor over Y2K.  I guess the feedback my teachers used to tell back then were true. “Never wish your life away” they’d always say. But it’s true. Do you ever wake up and say, ” I wished it was summer already?” or “I wished it was 5:00pm?” GUILTY as charged. The “older” I get, the more I realize how I want those words back. If you think about it, the days & years are soaring right by us like a plane taking off. From 0-180mph. Now that’s pretty darn fast.  Marjorie Pay Hinckley  provides the best solution on how we should live this thing called life! “The trick is to enjoy life. Don’t wish away your days, waiting for better ones ahead!” Continue reading “No Ordinary Resolutions”

REVIEW: No Ordinary Dinner

Like many others, I was a bit hesitant about dining at Piquant.  Not just because of its location, price point, or reputation, but also because I was afraid of being able to keep up with level of the service. Yep, I was intimidated.  Continue reading “REVIEW: No Ordinary Dinner”

REVIEW: No Ordinary Sandwich

What if I told you I know a place where you could get a sandwich that made Thanksgiving explode in your mouth with all the FALL flavors?  Would you believe me?  Trust me, I didn’t believe it at first, but the moment that beautiful sandwich found its way to me, I BELIEVED at taste of first bite. I’ve had many fun/festive sandwiches in my day, but had yet discovered a taste like that before.

Review: No Ordinary Sushi

IF you know me, you would know that I have a couple of favorite things I enjoy about life.  Spontaneous road trips, inspiring others, blogging and of course SUSHI! If I could have the same meal three times a day, I would choose SUSHI! I’m always on the hunt to find the latest and greatest sushi around town, and when I do discover a place, I think I had found THE jackpot!  The one. Well folks, I hate to say it, but I really think I found the ONE! Continue reading “Review: No Ordinary Sushi”

Review: No Ordinary Ride

It’s that time of year again, Monday night football, pumpkin spice lattes and young adults chasing their future.  A few days ago,  I had the opportunity to review a 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 as part of a blogger outreach program through DriveShopUSA.  After my fun week of driving this firecracker, I realized that this car would be a perfect for those who are experiencing college for the first time.

5 Tips To Living A No Ordinary Authentic LIFE

What IF:

I was to ask you to take a look in the mirror right now, what would you see in your reflection?  Answer honestly.  Do you like what you see?  Do you wish you were someone different?  Are you immediately pointing out all those flaws?  We all have been there, trust me.  I used to catch myself scoping out any object that would bounce off my reflection and sometimes, I couldn’t look at myself without doing just that… Continue reading “5 Tips To Living A No Ordinary Authentic LIFE”

No Ordinary Winghouse

I’ve got a secret.

Last week, my Tampa Bay blog mates and I were invited by our friends over at Ker’s Winghouse Bar and Grill to sample their new sensation menu for the summer! Can I just tell you how EXCITED I was to have the opportunity to mingle with my blog mates and give my taste buds a treat all in the same setting?  It.was.phenomenal. I’ve always had the impression that bar food was just that. bar.food. Little to my surprise, Winghouse was about to change my perception on that. Continue reading “No Ordinary Winghouse”
