Internet had issues this weekend (although I could still catch Wi-Fi on my phone) but I barely come on or stay on. Anyway, my niece and nephew stayed over as usual, I had to show them so many fun things that can be done without the internet and I also wanted to show them how to not feel like they need it all the time because they didn’t know what else to do lol. We painted, walked, played games, told stories and wrote stories, listened to my niece sing songs, I caught up on my spring/summer book reading and we watched SpongeBob lol
If you have kids, try to show them that it’s a difference. If you or your kid can’t live it without it (besides work or school) then it’s an issue. I have always been close to my niece and nephew, I always spend time with them without using the internet, but we had to disconnect to really really connect. They had no Wi-Fi and needed me for more entertainment. Sometimes this is what is needed in today’s society. So many people are wired to their devices and missing out on closer bonding. Our generation didn’t really have such an obsession for the internet, but I don’t want this generation to use it as a crutch at a young age. Show our babies how to have fun in other ways. ❤❤❤ Here is a photo below of my nephew’s amazing art work lol They were bored sick of my internet, but we had the best of time and we escaped to the 80s for the moment.
With Valentine’s Day approaching sometimes Cupid starts to point his arrow at some of the most surprising targets. Some of us will spend this day saying it’s no big deal (bc it isn’t) some of us will enjoy it with a bucket of ice cream and a LMN movie while others will go all out celebrating it with someone we love (rather it be a loving partner, a date, family or our girlfriends) …
Well, after a month of dropping hints, I finally told my best friend of nearly 10 years that I wanted him to be my Valentine and he agreed… Things seem old fashioned and that’s what I like about him. He has always been there for me and this will be my 2nd ever Valentine’s EVER. So I would be more than honored to celebrate it with no one other than one of the closest friends in my life that I trust.. lol
He always gives me and my mom the best advice😊 What’s funny is that we’re born 1 month and 1 day apart..same life path numbers. .twin flames.. lol As soon as he said “sure babe.” I got nervous 😩 not sure why when he’s HIM… He’s been through so many things with me and so I have with him.
Lol kinda wanna change my mind bc I am still in relax mode after my final iron transfusion last week lol So I dont wanna get cute or do much right now 😂
but he says “I’m sure you’re gorgeous, babe”… lol 🤦♀️🥰 Now I can’t back out lol We’ll just enjoy pizza and laugh at things as usual. 😂 Virtual amidst covid perhaps. He’s my best friend and that’s all that matters.
One of my doctors was so touched today when I went for my follow up appointment. She thanked me for the thank you card and she said that simple cards like that to healthcare workers means so much more to them than just money a lot of times… She said she was taking photos of my card and showing the staff. 😊
I talk so fast around her when trying to tell so much because we have a little bit of time at appointments but a lot to say lol She has become like a second sister. …My story about how I had prayed for countless months to be healed and how my spirit led me to her.. (the only doctor after 6 months of 2 previous opinions) I am a black woman with Creole descent and so is she. Sadly I thought the reason other doctors didn’t take my situation serious was because I was in the minority and when I choose her she could relate. ..bc this is also something that was common in African American women. She knew how to permanently stop the reason for my loss of blood cells with a simple solution that had saved my future and my future generation.
It was so inspiring; to her, myself and a few others I shared that part of my life with..
I won’t reveal her name yet until I am ready to one day tell everything I went through…the entire story! One day I will tell of this full blessed testimony of how God can lead you to the right people in life to help with you with things that seemed impossiable and when others said no…even when it took 3 opinions like it did with me 😊..as of now I am thankful, overwhelmed and happy. 😊
I overheard a woman saying that Godly people can’t envy lol I wanted to remind her the story I remembered from my bible study group days of how a God fearing king named King Saul had such envy for a sheppard boy named David who praised him and admired him..
David did so much to assist him in the palace while admiring…yet King Saul was jealous of him..envied him for being closer to God and tried to kill him lol People can sometimes envy your relationship with God.
I was shocked when I found that out as a teenager..my aunt used to explain that to us. They can have everything in life- lots of money, fancy cars, a happy marriage, a family, an education, talent- and yet STILL envy others…even envy those that are inspired by them. Don’t be blinded.
Remain faithful to doing good on earth and doing the right thing. Your light will shine to God as long as you are focused and balanced with self.
I know I am late, but I finally watched two of the Fifty Shades series (Fifty Shades Freed and Fifty Shades Darker) …..but I ended up going backwards though…I still have to see Part 1. 🤦♀️😂 Backwards binger, no? However, I think I was more into Anastacia’s lip stick she wore so I had to google what kind she was wearing because sis’s lips were POPPING!!! I found out she wore a set from MAC so remind me to get it for my birthday lol
Other than that it was an okay movie bc I love classy professional men with a bit of a wild side to them 😂 The actor that played as Christian didn’t seem as masculine enough to me maybe if he had more facial hair…his features looked so innocent to be the dominant role as Mr. Grey lol
I believe he may have had some mental issues so I will have to view part 1. I think he was drawn to Ana because she didn’t fully give him all of her control unlike those desperate crazy Liah. 😂 She was like “What do you have that I don’t?” 🙄 Ummm for one she had to have had some standards and…great sex and sweet side to her that made Christian so comfortable with her. As for Elena (Kim Bassinger the cougar) she was hating too… lol
So I have decided to go on an all girls trip/spa retreat in Miami with some ladies I met from Facebook groups for women in need of making other female friends. That sounds desperate, no? but I love this group and I really bond and click with these other girls. I’ve always wanted to go on a girls trip, but no chics have asked to travel with me. I sure don’t want to travel alone when I go on my getaway trips for my regular me-time. As you have noticed, I don’t really have as many close girlfriends. 😦 lol The only one I am close to is married and I know she has other responsibilities and such, which I humbly respect. (love her..) The other few close friends I have are 2 guys and how would I be able to enjoy doing girly things with them? lol.
I’ve always wanted to have a group of girlfriends like on The Golden Girls or Waiting Exhale, where we can laugh and enjoy the physical view of life on earth…TOGETHER. I want to be on Miami beach taking selfies with a group of girlfriends and making memories. 🙂 Some women have asked to do things with me were women that had a history of being mean/petty towards or just wanted to know my information on things…so I wouldn’t want any awkward feelings. Sometimes finding your tribe is hard though. It would just be nice to have a group that doesn’t act as if I did something wrong or serve me with attitude for no reason or use me. I know these new friends and I will hit it off when we explore Miami together. I CAN’T WAIT! I really am looking forward to this trip because it is definitely needed. I can hear the sound of the beach music down the street and I can smell the coconut drinks at the tiki bar. We’ll have to shop at the mall (Dolphin Mall) and the boutiques in the plaza as we laugh along our way. CAN’T WAIT! CAN’T WAIT!
2020 has been a total shock for some of us and things happened that caught us off guard. Perhaps since the era of the year changed, that was a bomb that landed on our heads. 😂 This pandemic and the longest election ever has made this year one of the strangest years drizzled in what the hell moments lol but I still had an overall good year. The year isn’t over yet though. Here are some of the BIG things that caught me off guard 😂
So my dog howls when I mention the name of his dog buddies. 🐕 I’ve never heard him howl before! I thought it was only a wild wolf thing. 🤔 I took him to visit one of his pals from the old neighborhood and he was pleased.
My best friend and I flirt A LOT now …nearly a decade later and BOOM where are all these weird feelings coming from that we don’t understand?… 💏.. lol 🤦♀️ Not…him. phew TOTALLY UNEXPECTANT. We both had to stop each other from flirting yesterday. 😂 I needed to go to my safe place and meditate 😊 Gosh, him? lmao 😂 now my heart is beating. phew
I gave up coffee months ago. I know, I don’t see how I did it but consuming coffee so much slacks up your routine. I had to let that habit go because I was totally dependent on it.. 🙅♀️ (refer to a previous blog discussing this dilemma lol.)
One of my dead plants from the summer started back blooming. I thought it was dead from all that heat this summer..I left it alone for months, but just like Lazarus, it rose from the dead. 😂 🥀🌹 It’s blooming yellow and I take it as a sign of renewal. I’ll rename it Lazarus lol
I got a blood transfusion over the summer while in the hospital.. bc I’m anemic 🧛♀️lol wasn’t as creepy as I thought…it increased my intuition. Maybe I’m a vampire because I do work part time as a psychic and I stay up late and love gloomy weather lol
I finally got a Camaro in January after dreaming of it as a child..Dreams really do come true 😁. ……………So there you have it. I am thankful that my surprises weren’t anything negative; if they were, it’s best to turn negatives into positives. What were some things that took you by surprise in this ROLLERCOASTER of a year? lol Oh yes and we had a full moon on Halloween, how unpredictable was that? lol
So early this morning.. my dog and I just left the park..we didnt stay there long lol..a couple was there…hugging and making up..the guy was skinny and tall with skin as dark as the universe, the girl was short and thick…they argued..she got in the car…dammit…he raised his voice..then said words to make her melt of how he loved coming home to his baby and his girl… Aww they must have been a family..once….I smiled…his effort was truth…I walked around the park (only halfway around.)…respected them..got in my own car..as the autumn wind kissed me…I smiled…didnt want to disturb. .their groove…hoping they reconciled…. wordz….from my sight.. ❤
I am all about self care and as a woman I feel it’s in our birthright to ALWAYS enduldge in the method of pampering. Growing up, I’d see women walk in and out of the salons and their skin would be so flawless. I can remember admiring their beauty and hoping to treat myself the way they did one day.
So here I am now, this grown woman at the age of 34 who is probably the age those women were when I was that tomboyish little girl curious about beauty. I am now the self care addict.
A friend of mine from Charleston mentioned a business that sells all natural self care products and I was like, “Girl, share the details!”
Goodoo Self Care is on my list of favorite shops on Etsy.com and honey, when I tell you that they have a virtual spa on their shop I’m not lying. I saw so many scrubs and facials to choose from. I immediatly added the Wake Up coffee scrub. (because now that I no longer induldge in the taste of coffee anymore against my pink taste buds 😭 my skin consumes it for me.). It wakes my skin up IMMEDIATLY; especially during the mornings when the weather is cold. HELLLLOOOO 🥶
Let’s face it, sometimes we can make a mess when making our home beauty products. I am glad that Goo Doo already has these items prepared and with a little more love. 💗 To check out their lovely shop, visit their Etsy shop listed below. Your skin will thank you! I know mine sure did
Since I have given up coffee over 4 months ago, I have gotten very creative with making healthy drinks. So I have this addiction for adding fruits to my orange juice in the morning. I wanted to share this wake up drink that’s bursting with vitamin c. I like to wake up to fruit blended drinks because it gives me just the right nutrients to jump start my day. WATCH MY VIDEO BELOW!!
Strawberries are good in vitamin c and so is orange juice. Having fruits early in the morning or before bed also helps with digestion, MOOD ENHANCING and helps you to use the bathroom (via #2 lol If you ain’t poopin then you ain’t groovin lol) I have also found out that making this fruity drink is great for relieving stress and makes you feel relaxed. (Insert yoga meditation pose here. _______ ) I like to sit by the window as the sun is shining on me and pretend that I am somewhere on a tropical island. It also wouldn’t hurt to add some tropical music to listen to in the background as you devour your tropical drink lol (ahem…passes you a virtual coconut cup with the umbrella straw. lol)
So all you need to do is chop as many strawberries as you like and add some non concentrated orange juice. THAT’S IT! You can cut the strawberries into small circles and toss them in the glass, afterwards pour the orange juice over the strawberries. All the vitamin C in there is enough to keep you glowing and going strong for the day. What’s fun is that after drinking the orange juice, there is the left over strawberries to munch on for a healthy snack. This drink is sure to give you the burst of energy you need to start your day or anytime you need a pick me up.
