See Ya Later Sunday, Hello Monday!

Welp, it's here!  Monday is back on the scene, and boy did it get here QUICK.

I can't   won't complain though, everything is good on the home-front. My weekend was spent doing what I love most- spending time with my family. I'll go ahead and throw it out there that this is how most of my weekends are spent. I'm away from home so much during the week,  that when the weekend arrives, I really want to enjoy my babies-all five of them (the huz, my three children and my fur baby).

I was off this Friday so I pretty much lounged the day away-I probably should have taken advantage of the beautiful weather, but I just didn't want to leave the house. On Saturday hubs and I spent a little QT at the shooting range…  WE REALLY ENJOYED EACH OTHER. We use to go all the time (when we were dating), but life happened and we kinda fell of track. Surprisingly, after all these years, my aim is still on point! I feel pretty darn good about it too- Ha!

After the range, we   I did a little shopping, I needed a pair of flats because my pup got a hold of my Ivanka Trump flats, and TORE. THEM. TO. SHREDS. I purchased those shoes just weeks ago, can you say PISSED OFF!!!

Anyhow, after the shopping, we meet up with our friends Monica and Troy for a movie date.  Although we were planning to see "Parker" we saw "Identity Theif" instead (because we arrived a little late)… the movie was just okay in my opinion, but the other people in the theater really seemed to think it was outrageously funny. I don't know; maybe it was me, maybe I left my sense of humor at home or something, but I'd rate it a 4 out of 10.

                                                            {Here's What I Wore}

                                                Janelle Monae Inspired "HAIR" I absolutely LOVE her



                                                                      {SIDE VIEW}




I have a little criss-cross action going on in the back… it was really easy to do too. Whew, I finally got manageable hair, Lol!!!
                             













 Ok, I LOVED the feel of this shirt! When I saw it, it took me back to the 80's, I HAD to have it! I'm an 80's Baby for crying out loud. On another note, I know y'all don't work for Allstate, but I need a little accident forgiveness on these pictures… My fridge happens to be COVERED in FINGER PRINTS… ughhhh! I guess the secrets out, we don't walk around with gloves on, and although we clean the doors regularly, it's hopeless-- the kids just won't stay away. They are constantly putting their little fingers on EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY the fridge 








 THESE SHOES Though…. aren't they saying something!!! I still love these as much as I did when I first purchased them… they're going down in my book of "FAB History"

The rest of the weekend was pretty chill, we went to church and got some much needed food for thought. After that the kids  and I went to the park to hang out for a while

                                                           Mrs. Josephine Baker

This is/was one incredible woman- she definitely took a stand for what she believed in, even when the odds were stacked against her-her courage is definitely worth remembering. 

"Knowledge- GET SOME"… check out her Bio here
       

    "Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one's soul; when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are born free, when understanding breeds love and brotherhood." ~ Josephine Baker

"The things we truly love stay with us always, locked in our hearts as long as life remains." ~ Josephine Baker

"It [the Eiffel Tower] looked very different from the Statue of Liberty, but what did that matter? What was the good of having the statue without the liberty?" ~ Josephine Baker



                                                                 Blessings y'all- xoxo

I like your heels and the details. But I haven't cared to wear heels since I get pregnant with my second child. Am not sure if I can still balance myself in tall shoes. And the outfit is a nice choice, too.

Hoping from Aloha Friday to visit you. Have a god day.
