Watching Olympic Figure Skating :: Layering Up to Stay Warm

I cannot believe how surreal the past week has been. It’s so crazy to believe more than a week ago, we traveled to PyeongChang to watch the 2018 Winter Olympic Games and Thursday night, Johnny and I watched the last even together on our sofa in the United States. It’s been the most incredible experience and there has been so darn good figure skating the past few weeks. I’ll write more on this below. I’ll be doing a full post on what you need to know about traveling to the Olympics soon along with a full travel guide, but I’m sharing some outfit snippets here. The weather wasn’t as cold as we thought, but layering up to stay warm is essential.

Olympic Pride :: Team USA Gear for PyeongChang 2018

It is still so surreal to me. While you are reading this blog post, Johnny and I are on board a plane flying to Seoul, South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics! You may recall I mentioned in this post this is truly the trip of a lifetime. As a former competitive figure skater being able to go to the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics and witness history happen is indescribable. Johnny’s willingness to help make my dream come true makes me feel so loved. A few weeks ago, Bumble asked me to share what Love Equals means to me and I couldn’t think of a better example than Johnny helping me put together this trip. He knows how important going to the Olympics was to me and did everything possible to make it a reality. Love equals helping someone else’s dream come true

Traveling to the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics :: Trip of a Lifetime

Johnny and I are so excited to announce we are taking the trip of a lifetime to the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics! Being able to witness a Winter Olympics has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. A five-year-old version of me fell in love with figure skating during a Dallas Galleria Christmas Ice Show. I begged my parents to take me skating, but they didn’t have the money. Plus, they thought my fascination would go away. It didn’t. Three years later, I’m still begging, so my older sister decided to take me. It’s going to sound so cliche, but it was love at first step. I wouldn’t get off the ice. To me, skating feels like flying. A few competitions later, my family and I started to take figure skating very seriously. That is how an 11-year journey starts…

What Happens When You Drive A Tesla Model X into the Virginia Mountains (Part 1)

Visiting the mountains in Virginia was actually a priority for me when I got a job offer in Norfolk more than a year ago. I remember being blown away when Johnny and I made the cross-country trek from Nebraska. It was then I decided we had to make a trip. I got the thrilling opportunity to work with Rent an EV. Erick and Chelsea are a couple who understands the hustle and are working to build a business while helping others get a feel for driving electric vehicles. After an orientation, we got the keys to a Tesla Model X! In case it’s not obvious from my Instagram stories, Johnny and I love, love, love Tesla. It’s a goal to have one of our own, so being able to rent one was incredible. We brought along our good friend Toan, who gets credit for these stunning images…
