The Frugal Socialite slid down the chilliest ride in town! Ice! has a slide made entirely of ice that was the slickest, quickest, cold bottomed plummet I've ever done. From the parka fitting at the front door to the angelic wrap up at the end, this is so worth it! Preview and launch night at the Gaylord Thursday was amazing. It is the best ticket indoors for a holiday transformation. Fireworks and Christmas trees? Who knew? You should!

I am in such the groove of teaching English As A Second Language, online every morning, that I am talking like I'm teaching students, LOL. Big thanks to SAB Media & Tom Brown for the studio time! Alma Thomas and Colin Cooper how was your day for being my cheering section at the end of our business meeting. They didn't know what they were getting into!
