Dine Around

Hello Everyone,

Trying to keep up with two blogs is a lot so I've decided to make Blissful Tales of Professional Socialites more about my personal encounters and stories about this wonderful journey.

As we have worked our way down the road of turning Professional Socialites into a household name we realized that people really look at us as "Professional" Socialites. Friends contact us to ask what's the best club on a certain night or have we heard anything about a certain restaurant. It's kinda a cool position. You see when we Megan and I started going out all the time while we were in college people didn't believe us when we said we had a plan for all this. Now looking back there are so many people that I could tell "I told you so". Ha ha.

In our article in Premier Bride Magazine we talked about ways to make the traditional bridesmaids' luncheon creative by doing a dine around. Cool idea right? So I started thinking about how I would do it for myself. The concept behind the dine around is that you meet at one restaurant for appetizers, a second for your main entry, and a third for desert followed by drinks and dancing. There are so many great places in Houston so imagine this....

Galleria Area

Appetizers and Cocktails - Kona Grill

Desert - Berripop

Dancing and Drinks - Belevedere

Check out our article "Don't Forget to Enjoy" in Premier Bride Greater Houston Magazine!!

Tell me what you think everyone!

A Wonderful Weekend at Home

I finally took the time out to make a trip home to Dallas to see my mom. I always have the best time with her and this trip she taught me how to string pearls. Check out my creation. Maybe there will be a bridal line in the future.

My Beautiful Soror

Sorry I haven't posted anything in a while. I have a very special picture of a beautiful bride but I promised the photographer I wouldn't post my pic until closer to her wedding date. She is getting married this Friday so I'll have more pictures to share but for now enjoy this very blissful sighting: Nkechi

P.S. Thank you to David Butler from King David Creations for bringing my Soror to Paraiso Maravilla.

Blissfully yours,
