29 Years of FABULOUS!

I know I have been on a major hiatus, but I'm back! I missed you guys!!! So my birthday was this past Sunday and I still don't think I'm fully recovered! If you missed my birthday freebie post from last year, check it out here. Not much from the list has changed, but some restaurants do a buy one get one deal now.

The only regret I have is gaining four pounds from the massive eating of free food and birthday cake! My sister and brother-in-law came home from Houston and that was the greatest gift I could ever ask for! But it got better!!!

Friday night, my crew all got together at Caprioska and rocked out and we had a ball!!!

So after not even recuperating from the previous night, at 5pm the next day, while I was still laying in bed, I was told that I needed to be dressed and ready to go by 7:45...and for the first time in 29 years, my friends and family managed to surprise me!! Typically, I hate surprises because they usually are way off base. But they pulled out all stops and RENTED A PARTY BUS! This part of the celebration was for me and my brother in law who's birthday is a week after mine. So...even though that bus was hella hot, we had so much fun!

So, AFTER the party bus, we ended up at Jet NightLife or Jet Life...whatever it's called and the madness ensued!!! My friends and family are totally out of control and I was out of control right with them! This was my 29th birthday and I have declared my 30th to be somewhere on an island relaxing! I don't think this one can be topped!!

By the time we made it to dinner at Liberty Tap Room on my actual birthday everybody was complaining about they were tired and their feet were hurting. I barely made it to dinner myself! It was the most amazing thing that my loves have ever done for me and from the bottom of my heart I love them dearly!

I also got some pretty cool gifts...thanks to Ced for sending me 3 gorgeous bouquets of flowers...that really made my day!

Thanks to everyone that celebrated with me in the flesh and in spirit! I love you all! Thanks for the gifts, the surprise, the parties, and most of all thank you all for being a part of my life!

This was the first time in a very long time all of my mother's children were in the same state at the same time! So even through the battle wounds, dehydration and we are!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
