Witty, versatile and transparent; Candidly Chloe was created because I spend a lot of time talking to myself but never share those thoughts with the world. As a mom, successful business owner, former teacher, sister, friend and an occasional nutcase, I'm really just a "down-to-earth" Texas girl who loves cocktails and crawfish. Lend me your ear!

It’s been a month since my son, Neiko, started his new journey at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Ga. So I wanted to finally share our journey since so many moms asked “𝚆𝚑𝚢 𝙸 𝙲𝚑𝚘𝚜𝚎 𝚊𝚗 𝙰𝚕𝚕 𝙱𝚘𝚢𝚜 𝙼𝚒𝚍𝚍𝚕𝚎 & 𝙷𝚒𝚐𝚑 𝚂𝚌𝚑𝚘𝚘𝚕 𝚊𝚜 𝚠𝚎𝚕𝚕 𝚊𝚜 𝙲𝚘𝚕𝚕𝚎𝚐𝚎 𝚏𝚘𝚛 𝚖𝚢 𝚂𝚘𝚗”

I’ve never shared this with anyone publicly...
In elementary school, I got phone calls everyday from my son’s teachers. They made me disgusted to be a parent because they were also my coworkers. They would send him to my classroom when he misbehaved; when I had a classroom of 24 students already. T...

When I initially researched The Museum of Ice Cream’s twenty something year old female owner, I instantly became inspired. Talk about modern day Walt Disney. She’s definitely on her way. The creative artist in me wouldn’t stop until I made it here. It was totally worth the flight to San Francisco, hotel stay and $38 per person admission price tag. Plus, I got to visit my favorite restaurants in the Bay, including the Crab House and Thanh Long. We actually got a last minute deal on a hotel at Zephyr, a recently renovated property on the pier. It was a pretty good deal because we were able to wa...

I love a good souvenir and keepsake.

Here are a few of my favorites that I captured on my own from The Pink Palm Resort.

Special shoutout to my fabulous graphics designer for this event, @freelyfatimadesigns.

She thoroughly executed my vision without a doubt! 

These VIP wristbands were an easy way for the Cabana Crew and hotel staff to know

who The Pink Palm guests were.  

 I loved these little Pink Palm passports. Guests knew what was happening at all times. 

 A personalized touch with the birthday girl's milestones and fun facts. 

 Handheld fans to cool down in the Texas heat.

One blog post isn't enough for this party, so here are more photos from the Pink Palm Resort!

Welcome to the Pink Palm Resort, a mind-blowing resort exclusively designed for children. A place where you can sit and lounge by the pool or take a dive and swim with mermaids. The Pink Palm Resort is a place where parents can let their hair down knowing their children are safe and sound with the official "Cabana Crew" on site. For about five minutes, take a walk with me through the Pink Palm Resort celebrating Nolan Noelle's First Birthday. Forty-two vendors came together, and it was totally a staycation to remember. 

The Pink Palm is a special celebration because it's not only something I wo...

I've been planning to launch a "real" blog for years now. I always share my thoughts in captions on social media, but those character limits get me every time. I actually started one back in 2008 before blogging was the thing to do, but I've decided to give it another try. It's time for me to share all of my saved iPhone notes with the world!

Let's get one thing straight for the Grammar Gods. I am not a writer. Am I educated? Yes. Was I a teacher for many years? Yes. However, when I write "candidly" I just go with the flow. Yes, there may be a few grammar...
