Ball of Confusion

The past two weeks have been mostly a blur. Thank goodness I have tons of pictures in my phone to remind me of everything that has happened.

To start it off, Trinity was sick. Very sick. Her fever got up to 105.6. What is a momma to do?! We ended up in the ER three times. I'm sick just waiting on the bills. She ended up having to have blood drawn, a catheter to collect urine, a chest X-Ray and 4 shots over those visits. After the fever broke, she broke out in a rash from head to toe. All they told me was "probably viral." What? Seriously, all of that and that's the diagnosis?!

During those visits, I learned that there is a toilet in each ER room...and that these rooms are poorly cleaned. No, I did not use the toilet! My sister pushed the flusher thinking it was the water...and my mom promptly corrected us and said "Quit flushing the toilet!" LOL It was hilarious!

My niece Emonee turned 7! She was supposed to have a Princess Sophia themed party, but it turned into a sleepover due to rain. I made her cake (cupcake pull apart). I'm very proud of it! Especially considering my carpal tunnel was severely inflamed and Trin was very clingy and wouldn't let anyone else hold her. The inspiration came from a post I saw on Facebook and Pinterest.

All of my mother's children were in the same place. This only happens once every couple of we cherish these moments. I didn't get to hang out with everyone like I would have liked to, but we made it work as best we could.

I made a horrible recipe that I found on Pinterest. Everyone said it was simply delish when I read the reviews. Liars! It was gross.

My mailbox was totaled. The person that committed this felonious act came forward and paid restitution. He was forgiven.

And last but definitely not least, Trinity is feeling better! It's been a long week! But thank God for Jesus! Her auntie bought her these shoes, which she wasn't sure about due to the weight of them...but then she didn't want to take them off! LOL

Wishing you all Happy Trails!!

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
