Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas

May 6, 2018
Mandalay Bay Hotel

Mandalay Bay has been my favorite hotel in Las Vegas for a very long time.  It’s my standard go-to hotel for many reasons.  It’s affordable, the atmosphere is amazing, the pools are off the charts, the service is great, the rooms are spacious, there are great restaurant options and generally its fabulous. The decor in the hallways is always very nice.  I also love the decor in the rooms.  I have seen many different styles over the years and they…

The Georgia Renaissance Festival

May 1, 2018
Georgia Renaissance Festival

Last weekend we returned to The Georgia Renaissance Festival.  We had such a good time last year that we wanted to visit again! Be sure to check out the website for the festival because there are many themed weekends that are fun! Look at this beautiful dress.  I do love all of the costumes!  We actually had beautiful weather but as you know it can get hot in Atlanta so plan for that! Vegetable Justice is one of our favorites.…

Georgia Tiny House Festival

April 15, 2018
Georgia Tiny House Festival

The Georgia Tiny House Festival was fantastic!  My daughter and I went “house shopping” and I think we decided that the best tiny home for us will be school buses!  She would like one for when she graduates and my husband and I will need one to retire in.  My son doesn’t want any part of the tiny home scene I don’t believe! I do love an actual tiny house in addition to a bus though and I loved this…

I’m Loving These Products

I’ve felt the need to up my game in many departments but baby steps are being taken.  Last year I got a really nice pair of classic leather Frye boots.  This year I got a simple classic leather bag.  At this rate by the time I up my game in all the departments that are needed I’ll be 80 years old.  I found this bag in a Duluth Trading Company catalog.  I’ve purchased clothes for my husband from there and…

Listening. Watching. Doing

December 12, 2017

I can’t seem to focus on the tons of meaningful and probably useful blog post drafts that I have so here is a little bit of rambling of what’s been going on in my world. Listening to: These days I’m listening to travel podcasts on my commute.  I seriously can’t get enough of the Amateur Traveler podcasts!  I have learned about so many places that I would like to visit. The podcasts are fun and very informative.  There are approximately…

Escape This Frederick

I had Ladies Night with some girlfriends a few weeks ago to celebrate Kelli’s Birthday – HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELLI! We had dinner (stay tuned for a review of the restaurant we went to) and then went to an Escape Room in Frederick! You know we here at Fabulous Indeed like a good challenge, an outing and escape rooms specifically.  We have shared experiences with Escape Rooms before!  We love, and think you would too! This time around we chose a…

Kerry and I have been blogging for two years!  We don’t actually know the exact date we started but it was mid to late October so here we are celebrating! When we first started blogging we didn’t have an exact plan we just felt like the world needed to hear what we had to say.  I still feel that way and we still don’t have a plan.  We have fun with it and that’s about it. It’s been comical to…

October 23, 2017
Minimalism Challenge

This is the conclusion of my minimalism challenge.  You can find out the details of the first part here!  Basically it was a challenge for 30 days to throw out / clean out / donate / rid yourself of items in your life that aren’t serving a useful purpose.  One item on day one, two on day two and so on adding up to 465 items in 30 days.  I ended up throwing out 477 items. Honestly, I think it’s…

The Minimalism Challenge

September 20, 2017
Minimalism Challenge

If I had my way right now I would be living in a tiny home and owning barely anything.  If I took it a step further I would be working from my tiny home, growing my own food and living off the grid as much as possible. Until I reach that phase of my life I will just prepare for it by discarding what I don’t want or need in life.  Keep in mind I have two kids and one…

Nine Women, One Dress: A Novel by Jane L. Rosen

September 1, 2017
What I'm Reading

I just finished listening to this book through Overdrive on my phone.  I really enjoyed it! The premise is you meet (you guessed it) 9 different women, who all end up with the same little black dress and all of the things that happen to these women.  I really loved all of the characters, and was quite sad when it ended. It looks like the author also wrote a book called The Thread – I will have to see if…
