Essence Festival 2018

I've been to Essence Festival before. Twice before actually. And I've never seen it like this. I don't even think the last time I went to Mardi Gras it was like this. All thanks to the movie Girls Trip! BABY! When I tell you groups of girlfriends were out there in DROVES! It was too many people LOL. I became so introverted. I couldn't deal. There were too many people on Bourbon Street! I could NOT take it.  We drove. A friend of a friend drove the entire way there and back! She was a trooper! But I don't think I ever want to do that again! I'm just not built for long road trips. But kudos to her for pushing through! Aside from not being able to take part in witness any drunken foolery, I had a blast! We went to concerts each night and man oh man! I saw so many people that I probably wouldn't have otherwise spent money to see. There were lots of technical difficulties though. So next year, tighten up Essence, Super Dome, or whomever was responsibl

Baby Magic is 5!

Looking forward to what the year of 5 has in store!  Now that the tears are dried. Hey y'all! I can't believe how quickly these 5 years have gone by! It seems like I JUST had her! No it doesn't, but still. It has been constant and exciting and draining and full of love. Time really does fly by! This year we went back and forth between Disney Descendants 2 and a Unicorn theme. Despite my best efforts, the unicorn won. I had planned out the cake and had planned to invite 10 friends and hope that was all that showed up. I know better. LOL. We are truly blessed to have such an amazing village and SO much love. I don't know what I would do without my village! The party was originally supposed to be a trip to Carowinds. I was not taking any unsupervised children. I didn't want the responsibility. But upon doing a little research I learned that there was a kid's fest scheduled for that day at Carowinds. There was NO way I was going to be any part of that.
