If I'm not tweeting, I'm posting. If I'm not posting, I'm pinning. If I'm not pinning, I'm uploading. If I'm not uploading, I'm "scoping." If I'm not "scoping", I'm "snapping." Did I leave any platform out? Probably.

I didn't wear out my welcome the 1st time obviously upon being invited to the White House before and as a result, I was exclusively invited back to tomorrow's White House 12th Worldwide Instameet. As part of the first family's efforts to reinforce that the White House is the "people's house", yours and mine and further engage via social media, I will be touring the White House along with other exclusive influential invitees and meeting with Chief Official White House Photographer, Pete Souza.

I'm a Charlie Brown fiend! One of my fave things about fall is watching "It's a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" and the Holiday specials that follow. I grew up on Charlie Brown and my kids are now growing up on the same. Although truth be told, I don't have to wait until fall, I have the DVD box set of Charlie Brown classics, tee hee. I also have a couple of Vince Guaraldi soundtracks. But there's just something about the annual tradition of watching Charlie Brown specials on TV.

Weight lifting, strengthening, intense, muscle ...All of these words can easily be used when describing 202Strong, a DC based CrossFit facility. But what about body confidence, personal, way of life, possibility ...These descriptions are equally as applicable.

|This was before the sweat ...|
Grip the Mat claims to take yoga into kick-ass creative spaces combined with a social experience. Saturday night's Grip The Mat Silent Soul & Spirits definitely did that and by "that" I mean kicked my ass.

Today marks the official last day of grilling season. I posted HERE about how grilling season is celebrated annually by the National Pork Board in partnership with Walmart. This year the Hero cut is the Pork Chop! From ribs and chops to loins and brats, there are a ton of great recipes posted to grillpork.org. I love the quick and easy recipes like this one I posted about HERE.
|Asian pork-skewers. Quick, easy and tasty!|
But even though today marks the last day, everyday is great for grilling and I have tools you can use or win rather!

Dinner time can be a frantic time and all the more if you don't already have something in mind. Allow me. Grilling season runs through August 31st and the National Pork Board (heard of it), has partnered with Walmart to school you in specific cuts of meat and healthy eating options. As part of this effort, grillpork.org has some amazing recipes and offers grill tips on everything from when to sauce to how to produce a smoky flave.

My nail swag is as much a part of me as ...I don't know, it's just a part of me and when I'm past due such as what I was prior to a paying a recent visit to my Nail Stylist, I feel incomplete. So this is the latest in what my Nail Stylist, Mikal Brannum refers to as the "flower power" series seeing as how I've been stuck on designs that incorporate flowers as of late. The pic above is the "before." Watch the "after" for yourself. (If unable to view the player window, click HERE.)
How often do you get your nails done? Do you feel incomplete like me when past due?

Just two days away from National HIV Testing Day, I am reminded of my very first sponsored event, the success of which totally validated my efforts which continue by the way, to navigate the vast and ever changing social media landscape. It was 6.25.2009. I had only launched my online radio show, Bag Ladies just four months prior.

I was most recently totally inspired by the efforts of my youngest daughter to complete a 5k. The 5k was held on behalf of Girls On The Run DC and was a first for both my daughter (aka, mini-me), and me. As much as I wasn't sure if my daughter would be able to endure the entire race on a day that turned out to be a scorcher, I wasn't sure if I would, particularly since I hadn't run in at least two years. But my daughter asked me to participate and I couldn't turn her down. And the experience of crossing the finish line hand in hand with her, is a moment and a milestone that I will cherish for a lifetime and hopefully my daughter will, too. I detailed the experience HERE.

It's a wonder my veins don't bleed this stuff as much as my brothers and I drank Kool-Aid growing up. Who needs Mommy?! We could make it ourselves. It was the go-to drink from morning till night. For breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh and snack time too!! It was 24/7.

You never know how much "swagged" out nails can be pleasing to you until you have someone who keeps your nail swag on 100! There's nothing like having the assurance whether it be sitting in the chair of your hairstylist, barber or fashion stylist, that he/she will

I had the pleasure last month of experiencing the imaginative power of some innovative students at the DC based 2015 National Future City Competition. The Future City Competition, a program produced by DiscoverE is a national, project-based learning experience where students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades, imagine, design and build future cities.
Imagine being in a room full of kids consisting of 37 teams from the United States and

Today's the day, the 1st day of spring! Although you wouldn't know it by what Mother Nature is serving up today in my neck of the woods. But it's here! Most of us suffered a brutal winter so if you are like me, you can't wait for warmer temps, blue skies and open toe shoes. Oh and some fresh nail swag!

All week I've been chronicling my efforts to get my home office back in shape. It started HERE with the clean-up and then HERE with the design. "Started from the bottom now we here" is literally echoing in my mind. Some of you may not get that but anyway, I couldn't not share that which I happened upon as I was cleaning and de-cluttering. Some discoveries brought back memories and others

I never do this but I interrupt my regularly scheduled content to bring you duh duh duh, a recipe. Upon posting a pic to my Instagram @bagladies of a kale salad the other nite, I got so many requests for the recipe, I said why not.

I always wanted a nook and it wasn't until I tackled making over my home office this past weekend, the saga told HERE, that I realized my dream. I envisioned creating a nook when

And so it began bright and early Sunday morning. As I was tidying up the house on Saturday afternoon actually, I caught yet another glimpse (one of many), of my home office which
is was so cluttered with stuff, I could barely step foot inside without tripping over shoes, shoes and more shoes! It's a fetish, I know. I've never been in denial about my love for shoes. You can follow my fetish on Pinterest by clicking HERE. I'll say it now, I LOVE ADORE SHOES!!
For the past few months my lovely home office, a space on the 2nd floor of my home of which I totally fell in love with upon moving in, fastly became
