Quotables: RIP Maya Angelou

In honor of the great Maya Angelou’s passing, this week’s quotable post is dedicated to her. It’s amazing to me how many of the oh so familiar quotes that you just know or have seen posted on Facebook and instagram are Maya Angelou’s very own. Rest In Peace you were truly phenomenal.





Mushy Mommy Moment: Kids Say the Sweetest Things

The Universoul Circus is in town yaaaaayyyyyy!

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take baby girl and her partner in crime.  Man, did they have a good time.  The two of them danced their little tushes off and it was just a joy to see.

While leaving the circus if it was humanly possible for me to melt into a pile of mush I would be the first.

Babygirl: Mommy mommy

Me: Yes babygirl

Babygirl: That was fwun

Me: It was fun babygirl

Babygirl: Mommy

Me: Yes babygirl

Babygirl: Da Wa awwwwweshhhhhome

Me: (screaming and crying on the inside) It was awesome?

Babygirl: I happy

Me: (fainted)

Those 3 sentences made my entire life!

I definitely had a case of the mushies.

No worries…..I’m back though, tough as ever until she says something else to make my heart melt away!


100 Happy Days: Days 6-8

Here are my happy days 6-8.

Day 6:

Almost a month ago I decided to get my ass back in the gym and do everything in my power to get to my goal weight.  I love to run and so I decided to push myself and run faster and farther.  My cut off for the past year has been 3 miles and by then I’m exhausted, so when my Nike plus app told me that I had a 4 mile run I did a pretty good job of almost talking myself out of going to the gym all together.  But I went and I did my very first 4 mile run.  It was hard, I sweat so bad (I mean BAD, what a bad scene it was), I could barely walk to the locker room when I was done but I MADE IT!  I’m so proud of myself!

Day 7:

Babygirl and I were up in chuch (church) on a Saturday ya’ll.  Day 7 my uncle was ordained a pastor.  I’m so very proud of him and was happy to be there with the rest of my family in support of this wonderful milestone in his life.


Day 8:

2 words, my mom.  She’s awesome.  I call it a superpower but she has the ability to bring a calm wherever she goes and I swear she just knows when I need her without me having to say a word. 


How are your 100 happy days coming along?

100 Happy Days: Day 4

Day 4:

Who doesn’t love a funny text in the middle of the morning?  Yesterday #day4 my sissy sent me this  text regarding my god-daughter and her love affair with the Barbie I bought her for Christmas.  I love giving gifts, I pride myself on buying great gifts so this just made my day:


There’s a saying “You want to make God laugh? Tell him your plans” last night I planned on coming home spending a little time with Babygirl and heading off to the gym.  That was “the plan”!  But once Babygirl grabbed my hand, led me to her room and sat me down to play with her mega blocks all of my plans were immediately cancelled.  Nothing else mattered at that moment but spending time with her and watching her build these blocks and realizing that my baby isn’t quite a baby anymore, she’s big girl status now.  Now if only she’ll let someone build the damn castle without snatching up the blocks. 


Have any of you joined the challenge?  If so, I’d love to know how it’s going.

No worries…I got this!

Jam of the Week (Hurt You)

I don’t know about you but I’m so happy to see Babyface and Toni Braxton making music again.  Maybe all is not lost in the music world and everything isn’t about ratchet music.  I love this song/concept and I’ll be sure to download this album when it comes out.

Song: Hurt You

Album: Love, Marriage & Divorce
