My friends and I had the great opportunity to tour the Krispy Kreme facility in Daytona and preview all the amazing new seasonal doughnuts. It was so cool! I got to see how these delicious doughnuts were made! (PS I the am incredibly pale one and thought everyone grabbed their sunglasses, what a dork.)
My friend Emily was sweet enough to cover this sweet event (see what I did there) way better than I could ever in her article in the Ormond Beach Observer here.

It is getting to the point that on a pretty regular basis people we have admired in film, in our ears, and on our screens will pass. There seems to be a big wash of them lately...but we are losing a lot of greats. It was sad when Haggard, Bowie etc. died earlier this year, but I can't say I was that affected. A loss to the industry of music for sure, but I can't say I listened on a regular basis. I saved that for the great ones, my go-tos, and one of them was Prince.
Even though, fairly they weren't even alive during this time, its hard for me to understand that there is a world out there that doesn't understand instantly what "Go purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka" means, may think "When Prince was on Apollonia" is just some drivel from a Kayne song, and don't know that Purple Rain was not only a song but a movie (although that was one of the best conversations I have ever had). Shouldn't they teach these things in school?
In all seriousness, this was all literally a generation ago and that is what the journey of life is all about. And now this portion of the journey has ended.

Now, they have released an app for Iphone! Today they launched Skimm Ahead, the first subscription service on the all new theSkimm for iPhone. Skimm Ahead puts the future into the palm of your hand. Literally.
Sweetly yet, when I sent a note of congrats, they were sweet enough to remember that I was first to blog about them. Isn't that the secret of success with a dose of girl power? Always be kind enough to remember your beginnings. Yay! You can download their app here!

What's new... How is the world treating you?
As for Me:
-I do not have to travel till next month, I'm such a tired loser that I went to bed every night in NYC by 9p. Whoo party!
-My year as Madam President is coming to a close...bittersweet, will miss the uber involvement but it's time to let the other ladies kick some bootie.
- Next project is my high school reunion, I should say our high school reunion! What a relief and joy to not drag my husband around and say, honey this is so and so. I will say and that I just thought of this, hope everyone keeps their childless inquisition to a bare minimum....that is gonna stink.
- We started on the AdvoCare cleanse together this week. I actually started a week early then fell off a tad (hello, NY bagels and spaghetti and red wine) so I decided to start over and be diligent. Until I won't be. I just have to keep thinking about good eating and how I want to be confident at the reunion.
-Getting very weary of the preconceived notions of what my industry is. It's getting to the point that everyone is an expert. It's very frustrating. The only thing I can compare is that when my car is broken I don't come to their shop with my own wrench, right? It's the same thing. Anyway...
- Spending a lot of time working on stuff and figuring it all out. I am getting close to the solution, then I'll let you know. I realize I sound dumb and elusive and should write hmmmmmm and shit like people do when they are seeking attention. It's not that, I just haven't put all my thoughts to paper on what I'm cooking up. Sadly, because I try to write everything down-when I do you will be the first to know.
-Please go read Swans of Fifth Avenue. Melanie Benjamin is a genius and these socialites in the 50's clamoring for Truman Capote's attention is brilliant and dazzling and everything you could ever want in fashionable late 1950's Manhattan.
That's all for now!

There is nothing more important to me than bringing big city mentality to our small parts of this little ole town. This week, I had the distinct honor of being selected to attend an Idea Dinner.
Idea Dinners is where eight strangers gather over cocktails and craft cuisine to engage in meaningful conversations, form long-lasting relationships and share ideas. I received an invitation because they thought I would be a great fit for the Idea Dinner with Chef Ryan Truong of Nichiyobi Bambu.
Recently named one of the New's Journal's "40 Under 40" Ryan has quietly been leading a small food revolution at his twice monthly pop-up restaurant at Bamboo Garden in Ormond Beach. Nichiyobi at Bambu features an innovative Pan Asian Fusion menu and Ryan and his team are creating an entirely new and innovative menu just for Idea Dinners. He aspires to open his own restaurant in Ormond in the near future.
The guest list includes Ormond restaurant and business owners as well as creative business and restaurant marketers who have a reputation for developing brands that think outside the box. I was so pleased to see my friend Jess and Carlos who owns La's Bistro, Taki who owns Greektown Taverna, and Jenna and Robyn-two fabulous ladies who are opening Virgola, AKA as my new home: a oyster and Italian Wine Bar (the original based in NYC) that will be opening in May on Ormond Mainstreet. The conversation was led by Alex Bittner a Adams, Cameron & Co. realtor.
Participants enjoy a scenic run on the World’s Most Famous Beach while traveling out and back for the 4-mile race, 2-mile fun run or health walk. Kids are also welcome to participate in the 1/4-mile race, 100 and 50-yard dash.
The fun doesn’t start with the run. Runners and supporters meet outside of title sponsor, Bubba Gump Shrimp, Co. for the bunny hop, the best-dressed Easter contest and loads of activities for children. The Easter Bunny, "Shrimp Possibles" and the one and only Forrest Gump kick off the race from the Historic Bandshell.
The Easter Beach Run is professionally chip-timed by the 5K Race Director.
Held at the Historic Daytona Beach Bandshell
12:00 pm: 4 mile Race (all ages, teams welcome)
1:15 pm: 2 mile Race & Fun Health Walk (all ages)
50 yards (3-5 years)
100 yards (6-7 years)
1/4 mile (8-9 years)

I was sent this a couple of weeks ago and again today by two colleagues that also work for themselves. It really is so frustrating, this lovely industry of ours! Our brain is not free!
Lately, I have been missing opportunities because the client "has a friend who is gonna help and handle his Facebook" or "his daughter is going to do it for him on the side". You have to cussword be kidding me, and this has been going on for a while. Remember when I was complaining about it here? Two years ago and now it is more crazy then ever.
Listen to me when I stand on my soapbox and yell-just because you have a Facebook, a social media maven makes you not. Do I come in to your law office and litigate your cases? Do I come to your salon with my scissors in hand ready to get my hair did? Nope! Please, for the love of God just be good at what you are good at and pay for the services that you are not to better your business.
Pay is the operative word. It is not for free and if it was it would look a little something like this. Enjoy!

The party will begin at the Green Bank and Maria Bonita, then work east toward Hulls, across the street to the businesses on the south side and finally end at Dunns Attic. We'll have a great Irish band, green beer, raffle prizes and more. Please come and help us support our downtown businesses. Though we pass by their storefronts almost every day, we often don't have time to stop in, meet the merchants and find out what they have to offer. Tickets are only $10 each and can be purchased on arrival. Proceeds for the event will go to the Central Florida Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Greetings from the greatest city on the planet!!! I'm writing you from the Long Island Railroad, DNCE in my ears (obsessed by the way) on my way into the concrete jungle. I'm indeed challenging the whole city that doesn't sleep as I'm on a 530 am train.
I have to be in the office by 8:45. Did you hear what I said? I am working in the city today!!! It only took 42 years and here I am the urbandite I have created in my own head. Of course I'm having a little anxiety because my luggage is in the aisle, but thankfully it's light.
OH IT'S FREAKING POURING!!!!!! That's the epitome of life huh... but I'm not gonna let anymore rain on my parade... today is gonna be a great day and I'm excited to sit in an office for the first time in years oh and I get to have some avocado toast.... Who is luckier than me?!
I'm staying in the financial district. Although this is very near to my favorite landmark South Street Seaport , I don't know too much about the area... so a little 630 exploring is on agenda. After coffee of course. From a bodega.

Little Black Dress Initiative to Raise Human Trafficking Awareness
MAKE HUMAN TRAFFICKING UNFASHIONABLE
From February 15 through February 19, women across Volusia County will be wearing the same dress for 5 days in a row to exemplify the complete lack of possessions (including clothing!) most human trafficking victims have with them when they are rescued. The Volusia County women will be wearing pins with the above image and distributing educational materials designed to raise awareness of this problem.
Human Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. Its victims are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of commercial sex or forced labor. They are young children, teenagers, men and women. Trafficking in persons occurs throughout the world, including the United States. Human trafficking is both pervasive and profitable. Current estimates are that there are 20-30 million slaves worldwide and that 80% of slave trafficking is for sexual exploitation. Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It reportedly generates profits of $32 billion every year. Of that number, $15.5 billion is made in industrialized countries. Not many people are aware that 3,287 people are sold or kidnapped and forced into slavery every day. That's 136 an hour and that's just the reported cases. Most of these are children and most of them are sold repeatedly for sex. Again, it's a little known fact but it's real and it's happening all around us -- even here in Volusia County. In 2015 there were 43 cases of human trafficking of minors in Circuit 7 and 34 of them were located right here in Volusia County.
The Junior League of Daytona Beach currently provides backpacks filled with clothing, hygiene items, and a few extra personal pieces to local law enforcement to distribute to these victims so they can begin to rebuild their lives with basic necessities after being pulled from these dangerous situations.
In February 2014, the Junior League of London pioneered the Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI) with the goal to "Make Poverty Unfashionable." While their fellow Londoners were attending London Fashion Week that month, local Junior Leaguers were wearing the same black dress every day to work, parties, dinners and events to raise funds and increase awareness of poverty in the city. The first campaign was so successful that they decided to take the initiative worldwide.
LONDON CALLED; DAYTONA BEACH ANSWERED.

1. I am looking forward to this weekend! Race Week is here! Valentine's Day is Sunday! My uncle comes Monday! Yay!
2. In reference to above, I have succeeded in getting the most dialed in Valentine's Day present to date. A cutting board. Yup. Oh and I went to three different golf courses and bought three rounds of golf. But still. I. Bought. My. Husband. A. Cutting. Board. For. Valentine's. Day.
3. I hope my purchases from the Who What Wear Collection from Target comes in today. It is really not fair that we didn't even get anything at our podunk Target and I had to order online. This may be shocking but I ordered two white tops, two black tops, a Navy blouse (whooo) and this awesome striped number.
4. This week has been very liberating with work. I also had a great appointment for some future business!
5.Wishing you a wonderful weekend full of love and kitchen items

I have an anxiety gage when it comes to this, if I am working with something or someone that gives me that tight chest, can't breathe feeling...I gotta go. Its not you, its me. Well, its you and you are not very kind but I have the great fortune of getting out because I don't have to satisfy anyone but myself when it comes to my own work environment.
That is a very powerful thought process to embrace and honestly it is scary as hell. I have been asked, "What-do you not want my money?" The answer although hard should always be no.
You come first, that is what this whole entrepreneur shit show is all about.

Last night , the daddy daughter dance that the Junior League of Daytona Beach holds annually went off with very little fire chasing! I made one table mistake from 920 people so I consider that a win. Of course, the mistake was made with one very high maintenance father who really gave me a hard time. Better me, than one of the volunteers I guess. Sometimes people surprise me, complete loss of what is front of them. Getting angry over something like this is ridiculous... but there is one every year.
I was insanely busy most of the afternoon, and it occurred to me that...shit...I have to speak. Shit! So while the first guests were rolling in, I was scribbling furiously on a notepad. It actually went pretty great. Just a little intimidating...I had a lot of friends in the crowd. I can address 1000 strangers but throw some friends in the mix, it is a little nerve wrecking. But I got off the stage and did that little Veronica Corningstone fist shake in my head. Yes! Yes! Nailed it!
It's interesting the Sweetheart Ball is the very day that our adoption journey began. I woke up that Saturday morning three years ago after my fifth failed IUI and received a phone call that my oldest friend had miscarried at 12 weeks. With tears streaming down my face, I called my best friend on the way to the Sweetheart Ball and told her I don't want to do it anymore...I want to start looking down the adoption road, What do I do?… Probably weird that I would talk to her before my husband but she had gone through the journey and could give me the best advice.
The next morning I took my husband to breakfast and asked him what he thought. That's the weird thing about relationships, it's first come love then comes marriage then comes the baby carriage...but when that baby carriage doesn't come, what then? I sat across from him realizing we never had this conversation...what if he like other husbands I know that want nothing to do with adoption. Luckily, he was on board and we began our journey. Bittersweet day....but I'm glad I have an AHA moment, when we are finally blessed it will be a great story to tell our son or daughter. The good parts only of course.
Have a wonderful Sunday!

1. Day five of laying on the couch...I know that I am blessed to have a job who's boss lives within no feet of me, but its really hard not to call in sick turn your shit off and go back to bed for a week. Luckily, I had one appointment who cancelled and everyone stayed far far away.
2. Tomorrow night is the Sweetheart Ball. This is the signature daddy (or the like)/daughter event of the Junior League of Daytona Beach and I could not be happier at the way it is turning out. We have some amazing talent that are giving it their heart and soul for this event. It is amazing and humbling to watch and manage. Everyone is killing it and the effort is astonishing. This is gonna be a great event.
3. I have spent most of these last days cursing and pondering over a 900 person seating chart for tomorrow night's said Sweetheart Ball. All I have to worry about is that this process goes off without a hitch. You may ask whats the big deal, but I assure you this is a make or break portion of the event. Literally. If the Jones and the Smiths dont sit together for the 20 minutes they will lose. their. cussword. mind. Of course if the Jones says they wants to sit with the Smiths and the Smiths says they want to sit with the Browns and don't mention the Jones, you can see why one President has been in the corner in the fetal position for the last three days. Pray for me.
4.. Oh my gosh, I love Snapchat. I realize I have reached a crossroad with my friend. I now patiently answer questions about what else Olivia Newton John has done as I beg her to show me how to make me look like an aviator on Snapchat. Now that's a true friendship.
5. Booked my flight to NYC for my first travel for the Association of Junior League International. I can't believe I had to wait to my 40's to say. Oh, I have to travel to NYC for two days at the end of the month for work. (Hairflip)
Overheard: Well, if Caitlyn Jenner wanted to come to the SHB, would you allow her? -to a crazy cant cut the apron strings mother who threatened to sue my organization because no moms are allowed.
Can't Stop: Watching Grease Live. I am on time three and will watch it again today. I have cried and clapped like a person who should really get more sleep.
Thankful: For self employment and this medicine that has kept the cough out of my chest (although it makes me a little cranky)

This blog started a lot of things for me, and lately, it has been a little ignored. I have been literally in my own head all the time. I have been thinking of what I want to do with the content for some time. I realize that it is fun to talk about wine or local social events but I have a lot to say and I am certain there may be one or two of you out there that would be interested in my prattle. If not, I am sure there is an easy way to unsubscribe, ha ha. There is just a lot in my head, that I want to get on print. For me, for my well being, for my sanity....God help us all.

Daytona International Speedway, the “World Center of Racing,” will host the inaugural Country 500 music festival featuring Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Kid Rock, TBA, Lady Antebellum, Willie Nelson and dozens more over Memorial Day Weekend—May 27, 28 & 29, 2016. The complete Country 500 lineup, including the Friday night headliner, will be released on November 3 and tickets, camping and VIP packages will go on sale to the public the same day. Fans should plan to take advantage of the special early bird pricing ($199) for weekend general admission passes beginning on November 3.
Also called “The Great American Music Fest at Daytona,” the Country 500 festival will feature the biggest stars in country music spread over three days and nights, programmed on three huge performance stages—all specially designed and built for the festival. Country 500 will take place on the infield of the world-famous Daytona International Speedway, a historic first mega-music festival inside the hallowed grounds of one of the most iconic motorsports venues in America.
Just as it is for the great races at the Speedway, Country 500 will allow fans to actually camp out in the infield, literally inside the festival. A full-range of camping opportunities is available for virtually any budget, from pitching a tent to deluxe RV locations.
Special VIP packages called “Crew Chief VIP Experience” and “VIP Pit Pass” (see attached) allow for an exclusive upfront, golden-circle viewing area at the main stage with side stage access at the other performances areas plus access to comfortable hospitality areas, private cash bars and many other comforts and amenities. Visit Country500.com or call 1-844-500-FEST for VIP benefits, camping information and all the Country 500 details.
Fans at the festival will also have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of their favorite country stars at artist meet-and-greets located throughout pit road and the garages. Numerous other features—a select festival menu sold from food booths and food trucks; carnival rides; arcade games; cooling water elements; country-and-western merchandise; fireworks; and more—will all be a part of the festival, as Country 500 transforms racing’s greatest venue into a festival-goer’s dream.
Visit Country500.com or call 1-844-500-FEST for tickets, camping, parking, and other festival information. Make sure to sign up on the Country 500 mailing list and get all the festival info including travel packages and hotel accommodations as soon as it becomes available.
“Luke Bryan closing out the Festival Sunday night; Kid Rock, Willie Nelson, and a homecoming celebration with Florida Georgia Line all on Saturday night; another superstar still to be announced to close Friday night; plus 40 more stars will be featured on the three stages over three days,” said Festival Producer Quint Davis. “The Country 500, like its older brother on the race track, will positively rock the one and only Daytona International Speedway. Be the first to get your favorite camping spot on the infield inside the Festival. Look for the full lineup and tickets on sale November 3.”
“We’re proud to develop this new partnership with AEG Live and Festival Productions, Inc. – New Orleans and bring the Country 500 music festival to Daytona International Speedway,” Track President Joie Chitwood III said. “Signature events such as the DAYTONA 500 and the Rolex 24 At Daytona have made DIS the ‘World Center of Racing’ but by securing this marquee music festival with an amazing lineup of artists, we will also be known as the ‘World Center of Entertainment.”
