Bucket List Item #23 – Sponsor a Child

I know it’s been months again since I’ve written, and then I come through with a bomb like sponsoring a child (go big or go home right?), but I promise you it’s at least worth the read. I hadn’t told many people about this, because it’s sort of a personal thing, but when I realized…

Bucket List Item #21: Miami… Where the Playas Play

I know it’s been awhile, but the last 5 months have been a whirlwind of changes – new job, living situation, friends, places to travel. Writing a blog has been nearly impossible, BUT I continue to get asked why I stopped, so here we are again! Also, I had to get permission because now, all…

Bucket List Item #20: Jamaica You Crazy

As many of you saw on my social media a few days ago, I traveled to the number one country on my bucket list – JAMAICA!!! It was not number one because of its resorts, but because of my obsession with Bob Marley, the Rastafarian culture, reggae music and the laid back, “yeh mon, no…

Bucket List Item #19: Pick a Dream, and Follow It

  It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but that’s the flipside to actually being a “busy girl” with an active bucket list. But what I was doing for the last month was well worth the wait. I ACCEPTED A JOB AT ESPN! I assure you friends, the name is not why I’m excited, but instead…

Bucket List Item #18: See the Beauty in Ground Zero

With the 15th anniversary of 9/11 coming up this weekend, I thought it was appropriate to make everyone understand that despite how tragic that was for our country, NYC has done an amazing job honoring those involved in the most positive, beautiful way possible. Here is a timeline of how I have experienced the rebuild…

Bucket List Item #13: Attend a Music Festival!

I think we can all agree that everyone loves music. If you don’t, I’m concerned for your well-being. But, some people love music more than others… and I happen to be one of those people. I like every genre of music, from every era, performed by artists from all age ranges and genders. In case…

Bucket List Item #11: Pick a City and GO

No, I don’t mean drop a bunch of money and go somewhere exotic. In the wise words of Sweet Brown, “Ain’t nobody got time (or money) for that!” What I mean is to pick a city that you’ve heard about, passed through, or had the chance to go to many times, but never really took…

Bucket List Item #10: Summer X Games!

In honor of today starting the Summer X Games in Austin, Texas, I thought I’d write about my bucket list experience at the Summer X Games. No, I’m not there right now, and unfortunately it’s the last one in Austin (tear), but I did make out there when it was in LA and I LOVED…

Bucket List Item #9: Join THE PLAYERS Club

I can almost guarantee this is not what you’re thinking, but hey, it’s your bucket list… you can join whatever Players Club your little heart desires. What I’m referring to is THE PLAYERS Championship golf tournament! Anyone who knows me knows that golf really isn’t my thing. I’ve never played it (unless we count super…

Bucket List Item #8: Talk Derby to Me

It’s been awhile! But that’s a good thing in bucket list land because that means I’ve been keeping busy. 🙂 As some of you know from seeing my pictures, I was working the Kentucky Oaks and Derby races earlier this month, and I HIGHLY recommend adding the Derby to your bucket list. A few years…

Bucket List Item #7: March Madness

Queue *It’s the MOST wonderful time of the yeeeeear* For some of you, March Madness means absolutely nothing other than possibly an aggressive arrival of spring. But to the majority of us (I mean, of YOU), March Madness is the most exciting time of year – several weeks of non-stop college basketball. For those of…

Bucket List Item #6: “Summit” Up

All of us have passions, whether it be career-focused or personal, and we need to do as much as possible to keep those passion wheels turning. What I’ve found that helps to give you that boost that you need to keep reaching for more is to surround yourself with people with similar passions to learn…
