Owl Always Love You!

Baby Shower #2 went down this past weekend. And the theme this time around was OWLS! This is also little boogie's nursery theme...although the walls are still very bare at the present time. This shower was thrown by my sisters and friends. It too was awesome! I realized too late that I didn't get a group shot with everyone and this saddens me...especially since a few people were from out of town.

But it was an enjoyable time and I'm happy that those who could be there took the time to come. It means the world to me! I tell you, I have some freaking awesome friends and family! There actually aren't too many more things that I will have to purchase right away and for that I am BEYOND grateful! Now I just need to start organizing the nursery...and write thank you cards.

I wasn't properly warned that in the third trimester the narcolepsy returns with a vengeance! OMG! I find myself sleeping at the most inopportune times. Like, when my boss is sitting talking to me and one of my eyes suddenly decides it's time to close!

Anywho, here are some pictures! The lighting was really bad, so we all look darker...or maybe I just look darker because these hormones are wrecking havoc on my face and neck...but that is another story!

31 Weeks!

The Food Table!
There were about 13 people that helped with this shower. So for the hostess gifts, I made a body scrub and gave them some nail polish. Packaged really pretty and they all loved the scrub!


Awesome times! Thanks again to everyone that attended the showers, everyone that sent gifts and everyone that has been showing me so much love! My gratitude goes beyond what words can express!

Have a happy and safe weekend folks!

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 claims to be…

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 show up empty…

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 Watery Melon scen…
