Going Southbound With My Girls Reminded Me That My Best Friends Are My North Star

Let's go to the beach, each, let's go get away.

Going Southbound With My Girls Reminded Me That My Best Friends Are My North Star
Megan Martin

I've been on a few girls' trips with some of my closest girlfriends, but I am looking forward to more.

In January 2018, I went to Colorado with three friends over New Years and went on another girls trip in September of 2018 to Texas, and I'm looking forward to going to new places with my girls. I really want a girls trip to New Orleans and to have a similar experience as the movie "Girls Trip."

The trip that I took south last fall was memorable, to say the least. The two ladies, in the cover photo above, and I spent six days catching up and catching rays on the beaches of Galveston, Texas.

The two friends that I went with were previous a co-worker and boss of mine. While attending school, I worked as a Leasing Consultant for an apartment complex in Cedar Rapids. One of my friends worked there most of the time while I was there, and the other came in halfway through, taking over as the Property Manager.

We all grew extremely close after one of them and another girl (who couldn't make the trip) transferred to our property in Iowa from theirs in Florida. Our friendship just clicked from the beginning. Going out to eat, grabbing drinks, making supper at each others' apartments to celebrating Christmas together.

After the property was sold, they moved south again. The other friend and I had visited them once in July of 2017 for a long weekend.

For a 'reunion' in 2018, we decided to go south to Galveston to have a girls trip getaway. Unfortunately, one of the girls was unable to make it, but the time was still just as fun.

We caught up on each others' lives, drank some wine (maybe too much one night), went out in Galveston, soaked up some Vitamin D and had a movie day when the weather went haywire. The night with too much wine consisted of singing at the top of our lungs and dancing around our Airbnb.

Let me just say that I highly recommend staying in an Airbnb because most times you can get it for a whole lot cheaper than a hotel, and you get the luxury of staying in a house instead of a small room.

Plan as many trips as you can with your girlfriends because those will be some of the best memories you will make, and when life takes you all in separate directions, that trip will reconnect your relationship and it's a perfect time to getaway.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
