Ft. Lauderdale, Pompano Beach and Me

Not too long ago my boo thang and I set off to Pompano Beach, FL to meet up with Fav Cousin and Cousin-In-Law for a fabulous weekend of fun and togetherness. We had a great time as we usually do when we meet up; however it is never long enough but that's another post. I wanted to share some highlights of my trip with you. My Top 5 Most Memorable Moments of my FL trip were:



1. Spending quality time with my family. Face it, most of us value quality time with family and take advantage of an opportunity to spend time with them even if it was a quick drive by or it meant you'd be staying in a shoe box and could barely do a full 360 in it. Being with family makes  all the difference in the world. My cousin and I grew up together like sisters and take every opportunity to spend time together. So seeing her face when I got off of the plane is my number one favorite thing about my trip. Traveling and experiencing new things with my boo thang is equally close to my heart.


2. Pulling up at the Wyndham Palm-aire Resort. It. Was. Beautiful. It was also all-inclusive, plenty of things to do including miniature golf of course there were beautiful pools, Jacuzzis, a restaurant right on the premises that served a mean breakfast sandwich with Ghirardelli's hot chocolate, if you indulge in that sorta thing which I do. Our accommodations were fully loaded, full kitchen, dining room, nice sied bedrooms, jacui tubs, balconies...the works. And...the resort wasn't too far from Golden Corral another favorite spot of mine. We don't have one locally so I gotta hit one when I can.


3. Seeing Young Jeezy at Club Pulse left me deaf in both ears for about 3 days. I thought the ringing in my ears would never cease. I felt like my ears were in a fish bowl. The DJ that proudly referred to himself as "your baby mama's favorite DJ" was getting it popping right in my ear hole. See, we thought we had strategically placed ourselves close to the stage so when Pastor Young hit the stage we'd be right there. How'd that work out you ask? Glad you asked, let me enlighten you. This ninja appears with a mic in one hand and a blunt and a cup in the other on the other side of the club up in the seating area across from us like it's right. Nah, it wasn't but it's Jeezy what are you gonna do?! Check out his Snap filter from that night. I love it...in my Jeezy voice. #whodat #thesnowman #iloveit



4. The club food was off da hook. R&R Bbq had a set up in an area in the back of the club and for a lil bit of change they got you right. My boo thang bought me a fat plate so I could eat and get my party on properly. The bbq chicken, mac n cheese and seafood rice is worth going back for and I live all the way in Cali. Have you heard that term bbq so good make you wanna slap yo mama? Well...are you picking up what I'm putting down here?!



5. So we're strolling through Lincoln Mall in Miami on the way to the beach when we pass this restaurant. Plenty of customers outside enjoying the brisk air and their food and drinks. Then out of the corner of my little eye...I spy smoking drinks. Yes, bubbling like lil mini cauldrons of Jesus Juice. I had to imbibe. The restaurant is called the Sugar Factory. They serve finger foods such as wings in a variety of flavors, mini-burgers and fancy fries along with the mini cauldrons of bubbling Jesus Juice. The liquor is poured over dry ice which causes the smoky bubbles. I will have to locate the name of the drink I had and update that later but for now I can say it was delicious and almost to purty to drink. Well...maybe not. Lol. Y'all know I enjoys my cocktails.


We're currently planning to meet up in New Orleans for the Essence Fest 2017. I am so excited I can hardly wait especially since they're recently added Xscape to the line-up. It was already gonna be a stone cold jam up in the Dome but now....it's really gonna be rocking. I am a Xscape fan and a bigger Kandi Burress fan. Yes, I am #teamkandi all day. I am so happy that her business endeavors are paying off for her. The Old Lady Gang Restaurant is off to a great start and did you see that snippet of Kandi in her new movie role? Kandi is on a roll right now like hot butter and I wish her well. What's your fav Xscape song? Are you traveling anywhere soon? Are you going to Essence and if so, who are you looking forward to seeing?

Anywho, stay tuned for more travel tales. 


Until next time...Go forth and read, comment and share!! Bye loves :)
