I created this blog to journal the different ideas inside me. I like many different creative outlets, so it was extremely diffcult to narrow it down to just one or two things. So what the heck, I decided to journal all the creativity inside me. I can’t help it….I’m a Gemini. I enjoy food, traveling, fashion and decorating….oh and I love to create on a budget. With two children, one going off to college this year and the other going to kindergarten (I know crazy right), I have to budget.
I would like to attempt to capture everything inside me….Nikki Thomas
I’m going to start with my favorite…..FOOD! The 2013 Taste of Chicago started this weekend.! Whoo!!!! Every year I have to get the mustard fried catfish from BJ’s Market , so I decided to head to the taste for lunch. I got my tickets (12 for $8) and searched for BJs, thank goodness it wasn’t far. Of course, I got the catfish and noticed this mountain of potatoes….it’s potatoes chips. They actually make homemade white potatoes chips and sweet potato chips. I only tried a few….too much for me to have my own batch……Delish!!!! I have seven tickets left, so I found the Franco’s Ristorante booth and got the portion size lemon Italian ice….great companion for the nice walk back to work. I love this stuff, it reminds me a little of the snowballs we have back home in New Orleans.
