Had to stop for a couple libations on the way home from the airport this weekend. Jay had to go out of town for a work trip, and we had a bit of time without kids, so we took advantage of it!
Stopped at @inkwellomaha and got these gorgeous drinks!
1) Death Flip
@casamigos tequila, @fernetbranca, yellow @chartreuse.fr, and a whole egg
2) Gingerbread Man(hattan)
Bourbon, sweet vermouth and gingerbread simple syrup.
Cheers, and hope your week will be fabulous!
If you are pregnant (or not) you need this dress by @altar_houseline. 😍Seriously. This is a size small and it’s long, soft, thin and light. It’s also handmade by a mom and small business owner. I also have it in black and never want to take it off ever again. So don’t judge me if I’m wearing it in my stories for at least a few more days before I have to wash it. ☺️ #altarhouseline#altarpdx#pdx
I enlisted in the Air Force after graduating from high school because I wanted to see what life was like outside New York. Little did I know that I’d be stationed in Kansas for 4 years. I was born and raised in the Bronx, so living in Kansas was quite an adjustment for me!! Fast forward 20+ years later... I am honored and humbled to find myself among those who have served (and continue to serve) our country in the U.S. Armed Forces.
During my time in the Air Force, I was stationed at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kansas where I completed my associate’s degree. Following my enlistment, I returned home to pursue my passion for, and to better myself through, higher education. I subsequently completed my B.A. at Columbia University and J.D. at Fordham University School of Law. Following law school, I worked as an associate attorney at two global 100 law firms where I represented a diverse client base across a broad range of industries in general corporate and M&A transactions as well as capital markets offerings. I also gained extensive experience representing various nonprofits, an accomplishment in which I take great pride. Currently, I work as an M&A attorney for a preventative pet care and veterinary service network and teach at a private college in the South Bronx. In addition, I recently started my solo law practice. In my spare time, I serve as a Board member of Youth Voices Center, Inc., a nonprofit dedicated to promoting positive youth development. I also serve as a member of the New York City Bar Association’s Task Force on Puerto Rico. To my fellow veterans and current service members, God bless you and thank you for your service.⠀⠀⠀

“ I love you “ is what I always say in my mind or out loud to so many animals I meet all over the world. It’s really hard seeing the way animals are treated in many places, travelling has taught me so much, especially how important it is to spread the word. This was a moment when time stood still and the gratitude for being here and seeing elephants live out their days in peace, became so real. ☘️
I wrote a full article on my experience in India, the good and bad with elephants and what you can do to make sure you don’t support tourism and entertainment practices which are detrimental to these incredible animals. We are in the drivers seat to change the way the world works. Would love you guys to have a read and let me know your thoughts, have put a link to the full article in my bio, for @contiki and @treadright .
Think of a challenge. This could be something positive like a new baby, a cross country move, or a new job. It could also be something negative like a job loss, the end of a relationship, or a health diagnosis. Now, here’s the question: What allowed you to effectively address that challenge?
I started asking this simple but important question of people years ago. What’s come out of my interviews, is a deeper understanding of, when faced with challenge, what makes people resilient.
When I looked closely at the data, I found five behaviors that allow people to more effectively deal with challenge. These are what I call The Five Practices of Particularly Resilient People.
One of the Practices of Resilient People is Productive Perseverance - people who are most resilient know when and how to intelligently pursue a goal. They know when to maintain the mission, and when, returns are diminishing, to pivot to a new path.
Tell me about your perseverance. Was there a time you pursued a goal with all your heart, even though it seemed impossible? What happened? Was there a time you realized your efforts would not be rewarded, and you changed your direction?
I’d love to hear about your experience!
¡Viva Navidad! Street Party 🎉 Only the B E S T part of the holiday season @disneyland! 💃🏻
Fun fact: my mami used to teach folklórico to little kids when she used to live in Mexico (aww!) and my younger sister took classes during middle school. So of course I had to jump on the opportunity to make these beautiful red folklórico dresses for my girls! ❤️ and maybe one day my grand babies will get to wear them too 😆💚🤞🏼
Orgullosamente Mexicanas 🇲🇽

TAG SEMUA TEMEN KAMU BIAR TAHU DAN MENGAMBIL HIKMAHNYA
Well.. Meskipun niat baik agar nilai hijab tak tercemar, jika caranya juga dilakukan tanpa adanya akhlak, maka juga tidak akan ada manfaatnya. bener deh! Gak bakal ada habisnya. Gak bakal nemu solusi & mecahin masalahnya.
ada beberapa orang yg tidak sadar ketika dirinya berusaha menjadi yg paling benar dan bijak namun dg cara salah dalam mengkritik orang, terkadang dia lupa bahwa ucapannya juga akan balik menampar kepada akhlaknya sendiri.
Itulah kenapa management hati sangat penting untuk terus kita benahi. bukan untuk kesehatan hati saja melainkan juga dg hubungan sosial kita dg orang lain juga.
Pun dalam hal mencoba membimbing orang lain agar lebih baik lagi atau kembali ke hal yg baik lagi, itu juga butuh yang namanya adab. Jangan sampai ketika kamu menasehati seseorang, itu bukannya membuat mereka lebih baik, tapi malah membuat mereka semakin buruk lagi. Hati-hatilah dalam bertutur kata dan berperilaku.
Kalau punya temen yg belum berhijrah atau mereka yg belum sempurna cover diri, jangan berenti untuk terus support. Meskipun akhlaknya saat itu buruk, itu bukan berarti kita bebas memaki. Hal terbaik adalah terus menasehati tp jangan sampai bikin mereka down dengan segala argument mu yang maha benar itu.
Sekali lagi jangan lupa adab. Yakin deh, kalau cara nyampein kamu gak pake adab, ilmu itu akan susah diserap. Bukan takut nerima kebenaran, bukan ada yg salah juga dg ilmunya, tapi mereka ilfill dengan caramu bersikap dan bertutur kata & akhirnya risih deket dan dengerin nasehat kamu. bener gak?
Semangat terus salehaku... Follow
