On Fridays, I have decided that I am going to write about my favorite things. This week was full of amazing experiences! Monday was a trip to Tallahassee and Tuesday was my first blogger event at IKEA in Tampa! You can bet they are among my Friday Five.
#1. Tallahassee Trip!
Even though I had to wake up at 4AM to drive from Holiday to Dade City and be there by 6AM to get in a car to head to Tallahassee and then repeat the trip late that night, it is definitely my #1. I am very active in local politics and even ran for office in 2018, so Tallahassee during the legislative session has been on my bucket list for a couple of years.
I got a chance to meet up with the Florida Young Democrats and see a bit of the Supreme Court Building.
#2. IKEA Influencer/Blogger Event
Wow! I am honored to have been invited to this event given that I am a newbie blogger. My friend, Denise, who founded Tampa Bay Bloggers, invited me to help me launch my blog in a strong way! The Ikea team put on a wonderful evening for us. In exchange for them #hosting, were asked to post on social media. It was a fun night and believe it or not, I bought nothing there.
#3. The Walmart Dress
So, I’m not going to lie, I buy my clothes two places. Walmart and Old Navy. I found this great dress that I wore to Tallahassee, on Sunday. It’s super Florida while remaining professional. Also, IT HAS POCKETS! I love pockets. Anything I can get with pockets, sign me up! Also this beaut is under $14! Win-win! Sadly, I have forgotten to take pictures of it.
