Family

It’s not everyday we get to take the kiddos to see a concert and fireworks. This weekend my hubby and I did just that. For our “Family Fun Summer Series,” we thought the kids would enjoy it. Besides, it was free! Well, actually our tax dollars fund these types of events. But, whatever. The town hosts different […]

My Baby’s Big Accomplishment

Mommy and son

It’s become a routine. I get home late from work, and Baby O is normally up within a half hour screaming his head off. It’s as if he knows when I get home. I’m barely out of the shower, and he’s ready to devour my boobs. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit. But, you get what […]

Undercover Mama: Alternative to Nursing Wardrobe (Giveaway)

Nursing-mom

I can’t believe Baby O will be a year old next month. It’s safe to say that I will be meeting my nursing goal of one year. By the looks of things, we’ll more than likely go beyond that point. So, nursing bras are a must. But despite sporting the right undergarment, there are times […]

A Night With Dave Chappelle & Black Star

Radio CIty Music Hall

My husband and I recently celebrated our ten year anniversary. It’s crazy how much time flies. It seems like we got married just yesterday. If you asked me ten years ago how we’d celebrate it, I’d probably say that we’d renew our vows in Jamaica, go on a trip to Europe, or something else grand. […]

How Many Boo Boos Can a Child Get?

boo boo

It seems like every other day Princess needs a bandaid for a boo boo. Sometimes I’d get a phone call from someone at school informing me of a scrape on her arm or leg. The teacher usually would start off by saying, “She’s ok.” Then she’d fill me in on all the details. I’d say nine out […]

#BouqLove: July 4th and Birthday Celebration to Remember

red-white-bouq

Fourth of July has always been a dual celebration in our family. It so happens that my Mom’s birthday is on the second. So, we often find ourselves killing two birds with one stone.
