The Sunday Takeover

Chelloooooo *In my JJ from Good Times voice*

Today you guys get to  meet my better half's--for all you mathematicians, just go with the flow on this one, Lol.

My daughter has been waiting patiently to "Takeover" my lil blog for a while now, so I figured why not… it's Sunday, and we're doing the family thing--besides, my thinking was- hey, if I focus all of the attention on them, I don't have to put too much effort into what I'm wearing; especially since I was suffering from the "I have nothing to wear syndrome".  So I decided I'd  let the 3 of them (my children) "Takeover". When I initially asked the boys they gave me the side-eye, like--you want us to do what? but then I shot the funny-face back at 'em  like, I just know you're gonna take pics for me, it's not like I'm asking you to jump off of a bridge or anything. So, with them being the loving sons they are, they agreed to join in on the FUN.  Needless to say, today I'll be sharing their Outfits Of The Day (OOTD),  These beautiful photos were taken by  my "All-In-One" husband. I'm telling y'all- God has BLESSED me with a man that can do it all. Well, everything except install hardwood floors- Lol

 So sit back, relax and enjoy this Swagged Out Sunday Takeover

Say What!!!

Well, with Black History Month approaching, I decided I'd brush up on a lil history; you know, get familiar. I mean,  that's the least I can do right? … So with that thought in mind and me being a  modern day researcher… I took it to Google-- come on now, don't act like you head to the library every time you have a wonder about something,{This is sooo NOT a term paper} lets be real here!

Anyway- I was thinking, {come on everyone make the thinking sound with me, hmmmmm, Lol} I wonder... what year did Madam C. J. Walker invent the hot comb and relaxer *Opens Google browser*

I sat there perched in my seat, with my spine aligned--the best way for me to describe it was a major "Ralphie Moment" the phone was ringing--- people were stopping by my desk to say "Hello"… I was like, give me a break already, I'm trying to get my black history on… it's my lunch break for crying out loud (hence the reason I need to stop eating at my desk)

Finally, the results are in… I click on the link, and this source has been misinformed… they're trying to say that the "Madam" didn't invent the relaxer…Mrs Green {my second grade teacher) would surely get a kick out of this;  on to the next link------> wait, they're saying she didn't invent the hot comb, let me find another "Madam C.J. Walker" page…. SAY WHAT!!!! SHE DIDN'T INVENT THE HOT COMB OR THE RELAXER?!?

She specialized in making hair products such as shampoo with sulfur, pomade, and so forth… but she didn't create the hot comb or relaxer… I was like "wow"YOU'VE.  GOT. TO. BE. KIDDING. ME! Um, Mrs. Green, darling, you've got some explaining to do…. Why didn't you tell me that Garrett A. Morgan invented the relaxer… and to make matters even worse, I asked random people who invented the hot comb and relaxer and almost everyone of them said the same thing "Madam C. J. Walker" and NO we didn't all go to the same school(and I was the only one of them that attended Mrs. Green's class"… Lol


So with that said, I leave you all with this funny…  CAN YOU SAY "Ralphie Moment"

VS Semi Annual Sale Haul….

So after some careful consideration, I decided to go forward with my original plan of doing a Semi-Annual Sale Haul. I was debating on whether or not it would be doing too much, but at the end of the day, I hope everyone has seen panties and bras before, if not, charge this to your health education…  Here's a quick lesson for ya: boys have wee-wees and girls have poo-poo's, girls wear braziers, thongs, and panties (just to name a few)-- and boys wear under-shirts, boxers, briefs,and um, I guess some men wear thongs too *Huge gag, I just threw-up-in-my mouth*. Anyhoo, here's the video--me and my lil ole iMovie software are becoming better acquainted by the day- I think things may be taking off a little faster than I thought. I guess practice does make perfect after all. I was even able to add a few cool features to this video.  






So, tell me---whadoyah think????

Whats In My Bag…. Finally!

Hey guys! Guess what…. no really, you have to guess… I'm not telling until you do- well, since you see the big ole video box below, I guess it wasn't much of a surprise anyway---but just for the sake of saying it, and because I'm super excited about it, here goes- I FINALLY UPLOADED THE VLOG I PROMISED LAST WEEK- it's a shame it took me so long, but the process wasn't as simple as I anticipated… this dang iMovie is only friends with those that have a understanding of how it  actually works, so I guess you can say we aren't quite friends yet- we're just getting acquainted- Ha! Anyway, this is the first portion of the video, you know,  the "What's In My Bag" segment- check it out, I hope y'all enjoy it and maybe even join in on the fun- come on, everyone's doing it- Lol!!


 
                                         
                                          There was WAY more excitement in the first 4 takes-hehehe

                                         Here's my VS Haul--- *Caution* lots of padded bras and average sized thong-tha tha tha thongs coming your way… don't click below if you don't want to see the show- and if there happens to be any men folk hangin' round, um- please exit, this is NOT for you suga… Okay, now that thats all taken care of here goes….  

Well, on second thought, since there may potentially be some men folk lurking around, I think I'll opt out of doing the VS Haul after all- sorry ladies, wouldn't want this to fall in the hands of a dreamer- you know I'm kinda haute- even if I do wear "Average size" panties… hehehe

Blessings Dolls,

Laters….

Wow! I've reached over 100 followers, what a milestone! I want to send a huge thank you to all of my supporters. It's one thing to say that 100 of your IRL friends are following your blog and reading and commenting on your material, but it's really something when you have 100 + complete strangers tuning in to hear what you have to say and to follow along through your life journey. You all are awesome and I just want to thank each of you, for every comment, every tweet and every email, it truly means a lot to me-we started out as random bloggers and ended up as friends. You have to know when you're winning, and baby I know I am!

My First Blog Award!

Well, well, well, what do we have here?!?



Oh my, ITS A LIEBSTER AWARD {note the caps, I'm screaming with excitement}!

For those of you who don't know {raises hand shyly, as she looks around the classroom- um, I didn't know} It's an award given to up and coming bloggers who have 200 followers or less. The word Leibster is a german term of endearment. The award is generally presented by other fellow bloggers who  enjoy reading your material.

I'd like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to my lovely blog buddy Amy Michelle for nominating me-This is my first blog award and boy does it feel awesome to be thought of.

When you're nominated for the Liebster Award,  there are a few simple rules you should follow if you decide you want to accept--here's what you need to do:


I) Post 11 random things about yourself

   II) Answer the 11 questions the nominator has asked

      III) Nominate 11 Bloggers w/less than 200 followers & include their link in your post
       
          IV) Create 11 questions of your own to ask the people you nominate

             V) Notify the nominees of their award (no-brainer, right?)

                VI)  And lastly, you can't nominate the person that nominates you


 Now that thats all clear…. lets get this party started {in my M.C. Hammer voice}


Randomness:

I believe that Jesus is the son of God and that he died for our sins and transgressions



I own a ton of nail polish and I have YET to polish my oswn nails (I need to do better y'all)


I didn't "Need" a Keurig until I started blogging, now I can't begin my day until I've had me"K-cup"




I'm thankful that Amy Michelle  nominated me for this award, I really appreciate you thinking of me :)




One of my favorite desserts is ice cream, yummo


I get PISSED OFF to the fifth power when my fur-baby reconfigures my pumps with his teeth, but I find it photo worthy when he gets a hold of my hubby's shoes


These are the people  who motivate me to be the best ME I can possibly be, and to accomplish the goals I set for myself this year.   Meet my handsome hubby and our darling children (they all drive me crazy but I love them to life)




I can't resist a sale…hence the reason, I'm about to head out to the VS Semi-Annual Sale


People say life doesn't come with a manual; well, for me the Bible is good enough



I am totally Hooked on Scandal



I love to read books and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Fifty Shades trilogy




(whew, gotta speed things up a bit so the pics stop here)


Answers to Amy Michelle's Questions (click here to see the questions):

Spa treatments in a nice ambient environment, followed by a good book and a martini cup of coffee or tea = superb relaxation

Fav Starbucks drink = Carmel Brûlée Latte

Where I want to vacation = Negril Jamaica

Fav Pass-time  w/ fam = Watching Movies and baking delightful treats

What I like about spring = Spring to me is the equivalent of what  New Years means to most people, it's like a new beginning, flowers bloom, the butterflies dance around the flower beds. I sip on pink lemonade and try different springy recipes- and I get to slide into my fab sundresses, open toe sandals, sunglasses, and big floppy hats 

What I dislike about spring = Love + Bug; I hate those nasty little things. They. Freak. Me. Out. Seriously!

I take my Christmas decor down after Jan 7th

FB or Twitter- Um, Facebook I guess, Lol

Do I sponsor with anyone- No, not yet.  Maybe sometime in the future

Yoga or Pilates- Pilates (I'm not very flexible)

I dont' really make resolutions but my goals are simple:
Have a more intimate relationship with God
Focus on my education

My Questions: 

Whats your fav restaurant?
What would a perfect date night consist of?
If you could pick a celebrity to hang-out with, who would it be?
What's your fav movie or book?
Do you prefer to shop in a store or online?
What three words best describe you?
Whats your fav perfume right now?
Victoria Secret or Fredrick's of Hollywood?
What's your most used Christmas gift?
Do you have a fav handbag?
Which do you prefer, iPhone or Android (or neither)?

And the  talented nominees are {drumroll}…..

Holiday Party Dress...

I wanted to post these pics but I never got around to it… Here's what I wore to our annual holiday party












Purple Kisses :-)


What I'm Wearing:
Ralph Lauren Gown (Macy's)
Ivanka Trump Sandals (Macy's)
Diamond Stud Earrings
Cocktail Ring (old)
Bangles (bebe)

So, what do you think…. 


Cute But Comfy...

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

 It's been forever since we've talked (we won't point any fingers or go into why I've been MIA for so long, whats most important is that I'm back, right :) 

Anyhow, I've been doing a lot of shopping lately (for the holidays of course) and I thought it would be cool to share one of my holiday shopping outfits with you all. When I'm out shopping, comfort is ALWAYS KEY.  I felt like being playful, so I mixed a few solids and prints and this is what I got… Voila!
                       

                        I absolutely LOVE hats and scarves during the winter months...










What I'm Wearing:
Leopard Hat (Bakers)
Off Shoulder Sweater (VS)
Tank (VS)
MK Sling Bag (B-day gift from my friend Tiffany) 
Coach Boots (Old)
Scarf (Macy's)

What do you like to wear when you're out and about? Is comfort a factor for you, or do you lean more towards the notion that pain is beauty
