Hi Baby,

I know you are going though so much. Dust off that old school music to set you right again and post some of it on the blog. It was one of my favorite parts of the blog, waiting to see which music you would list next.

I love Luther Vandross's Shine, cause you do shine baby and you always will.

Parent's Just Don't Understand...

Mini and friends on our terrace the other night...informing us of all the words we, as their parents should not use because it's too embarrassing for them...
example: swag, swagger, dl or down low...etc. lol....too cute.

I heart Mini...


I received this text message from Mini after some baby daddy drama...all in a days work for the baby momma...

Oprah...

Fashion Model, Role Model, Humanitarian
...words of wisdom from Oprah,
"when someone shows you who they are, believe it."

Something I believe with all my heart; but still find it hard to do...you have no idea how many chances I give people even after they have shown to me who they truly are...someone who is not worthy of another chance. Sigh.

Tryin' to paint my blues away....

...when I came across this quote...
"Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect."
Margaret Mitchell

All alone with my thoughts on a saturday night...


....Mini is off to D.C. visiting family and my evening didn't turn out as planned...So, I'm home alone with my thoughts, feeling a little down...having a margarita...watching a movie on t.v....when I had an AHA moment...


A young woman (in the movie I'm watching) told an old man that he had a gift for painting, when the old man replied, "no it's just a talent"...he went on to explain that a talent is something that you do better than most people, but a gift is something you do that changes someone's life...and a gift can only come from God...Do you agree?

I didn't want to leave you waiting too long...I hope this keeps your eyes busy for a little while...Life...Ugh!

...wish I had this dress...

heart the make-up

sweet/cheap idea...


Wish I were there....
