Last year, I had the opportunity to dine at Lautrec at Nemacolin Woodlands in Farmington, PA. I was at the hotel on unrelated business with some time to kill. The restaurant was recommended to me by the hotel staff. I was immediately taken with the name, Lautrec. It is in reference to the well known painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. You may recall a portrayal of him in the film Moulin Rouge by actor John Leguizamo.
The name was most likely chosen due to the fact that Lautrec was French and this restaurant specializes in upscale European style dining. The decor, mood and service was fabulous. A red and gold color scheme were utilized. The wait staff was both friendly and prompt.
The food was delicious and affordable considering the style of the restaurant. I would say that the menu is medium priced though it is a fine dining restaurant where I would expect to pay more. I ordered a lox bagel with all of the fixings and an orange juice. This was the first time I had an actual bagel prepared with lox and salmon. The juice was good. The bagel was amazing. Everything on it was fresh and delicious. The juice was around $3 and the bagel meal was a bit over $10. My father had the classic breakfast. He enjoyed his meal as well.
The bathrooms for the restaurant are both stylish (heavy on the gold decor) and cleanly. I highly recommend this establishment to anyone visiting the area.

I will be moving to Orlando, Florida this fall to take part in the Disney College Program. This is an introduction video to give you a bit of an explanation of what this “paid internship” entails. So watch below to hear about how I will be “Living, Learning & Earning” soon. This is also just a good way to see me smiling and happy because I’m not always like that. This is very exciting!

Last week I decided to go out and sing some karaoke as I love to do. I don’t do it nearly enough though. I often go with a boob top when going out, to steal a phrase from “Must Love Dogs”. Luckily I had recently bought a fun Nicki Minaj top from Kmart for a great price.
Tyra would hate this no neck shot.
So I built the outfit around that. I added some kick ass 80s throwback jeans from DOTS (RIP) and I had to go with my old Barbie necklace on this one. I mean, it’s the obvious choice. It’s Nicki Minaj for Pete’s sake.
Obviously the lighting on my staircase sucks but I had to have a pic that includes my shoes. That’s just who I am.
Yeah, you can see my top and necklace in this photo but the main point here is to show you a panic attack. This is my face during a panic attack. Yeah, anticipating hatred by strangers can be scary. Luckily that didn’t happen that night. The fact that there is a 50/50 chance of that happening blows though (I make up my own statistics).
I had a decent, not great time. I sang two songs so I did accomplish that, which was why I went. I sang One Piece at a Time by Johnny Cash and later My Favorite Mistake by Sheryl Crow.
On the way home I took a selfie with this giant Ten Commandments in front a of a local church because I find it ridiculous when sober and hilarious when drunk, atheist up in here. (I know, this is an awful angle for my face, but I don’t care, it’s still makes me chuckle. )
