Where in the World...

Where in the world have I been eh?

My lovely little spot of the blogosphere has been gathering dust and getting looks of pity from across the way.

Here's a break down of Mizz KB's whereabouts...


Me + Ninja having din din at Asia in L'Auberge Du Lac Hotel & Casino

Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Key West, Delray Beach, YeeHaw Junction, Climax (GA), Engagement Party for Melanie & Logan, Perkins Rowe, Urban Outfitters, Kona Grill, California Pizza Kitchen, BCBG, Leesville, DeRidder, watching Eat Pray Love, Jessica & Gavin's Wedding, Wine Loft, Tap Room, Bella Figura, Cafe Roma, Towne Center Mall, L'Auberge Du Lac, GloBar, Asia Noodle Bar, Lake Charles Man Made Beach, Steamboat Bill's, lost, Tallahasse, in the sketchy part of town, Blue Agave, Pizzeria Venti, working late, SKing's condo, in bed watching chick flicks

Mentally & Emotionally:

stuck in my head, wanting to blog, focusing on turning my job into a career, longing for more excitement in my surroundings, letting my perfectionism give way to procrastination, asking things of others that I should be demanding of myself, inspired, creative, speaking my thoughts and emotions, romancing the world, searching for things that bring me joy, veering away from things that drain me, challenging myself, searching for balance, investing in myself

Maybe that above section sounds like a clusterfreak of self-help and new age-iness, but it's honestly and truely where I am in life. Let's call it what it is... a quarter-life crisis. I'm at the point where having a great job and fabulous friends is great but theres an undeniable desire for more - to reap the most I can from the life and the opportunities I've been given.

A close friend told me recently, "Often times, the things you ask of others.... God may be asking you to do."

And that hit me like a brick.

I so often see the opportunities available to others and expect them to take full advantage and push themselves to be great.

But I've been slacking in my own life.

I'm working on the personal life and the professional one as well, but the one we're discussing now is my blogging life.

I started this blog as a way to share my love for the people and the culture of the Gulf Coast. I've been blessed with so many people who are willing to read and to provide feedback. I've been given the chance to create and nurture friendships that inspire me and challenge me. I've let my perfectionism and being stuck inside my head prevent me from accomplishing my original purpose... And I feel like I need to be more assertive in my pursuit of all that blogging brings.

Don't know how this comes across to y'all
but I have to say the honesty already has me inspired
and I'm vowing to bring you more of my lust for adventure.

I Heart .....

I got these babies at a little clothing shop at the Town Center Mall while in Boca. While I absolutely love them, today's the first day that I attempt to wear them because well... two things are irking me.

1. They're incredibly white. Like blinding white. Like I'm not scene/hip/hop enough to rock shoes this white.

Since it rained all night, and its supposed to pour later, I figured today's the day!

2. They're blank. My issue isn't that I can't think of something to fill in the blank, it's that I have waaaaay too many things that would suit the empty space just fine... How could I choose just one or two?

I ________...

nutella • Boca Raton • SKing • MTher • nicknames • Riesling • Climax, GA • lunch dates • Hello Kitty • Words with Friends • lederhosen • BCBG • pesto cream sauce • milkshakes • GChat • the oilfield • hugging it out • skype • ninjas • greeting cards • motivational speeches • forms • interventions • Royal Pains • blogging • twitter • crepes • self help books • being ridiculous • abbreviating words • catching up • convertibles • randomness • hand sanitizer • iPhones • bb cream • vanilla bean fraps • mobster movies • snail mail • picnik • shitshows • charity events • baked salmon rolls at Tsubaki • road trips • Almaza • Olliekins • my godson • Woodchuck • witty people • Frenglish & Fralley • british comedies • late night phone calls • painted toes • instant film • kawaii • comments • online sale sites • celebrity gossip • cuddles on the couch with my besties • adventures in cooking • festivals • dive bars • being classy • inside jokes

So tell me, what should I put in the fresh white blanks of my new converse??

How would YOU fill in the blank??

Boca Lovahs!

It's only fitting that I start out my Boca Road Trip Recap
Like this...

...with a photo of the two most fabulous women in my life.
I've got SKing on the left and ALin on the right.

If ever three people could simultaneously fall in love with each other in a matter of 2 hours, it would be we three.

At this point I'm sure this guy is feeling mighty left out, but don't worry bud... We managed to include you in a few of our photos. Didn't we?


Back to the fabulousness!

I'm pretty sure you can feel the ridiculous lady love vibes (ALin, thats your cue to giggle like a 12 year old boy) radiating from the photo.

So feel free to comment on how stinkin' cute we are (Geezey Wheezey, just tell me that you love our faces) orrrr if you want to be a hater and notice that we're not actually playing poker but rather Apples to Apples, I'll ignore your sippin' on the haterade and invite you to comment on the sheer awesomeness of Apples to Apples.
