Trinity is 6!

She has not been a baby for a very long time. It seems like the second the clock turned and it was her birthday she became a diva. She's always been bossy...but she didn't steal that. Now, if it isn't the way she wants it, she doesn't want it. At. All.

I initially had plans to have a small gathering at my house with some inflatable pools and the like. Then I thought about wet kids and mud and grass and quickly changed my mind. I was on the way to telling her we could just go to Carowinds for the day but she decided she wanted to have a party at "the gymnastics place."

Does she do gymnastics? No. But we have been to 4 parties there and they are always a good time. It wasn't cheap, but if I'm being honest with myself, I would have spent so much more if I had it at home. And this experience was completely hands off. They even ordered and picked up a cake!

Although a lot of people that were invited ended up not showing up, we still had a ball. I almost sent invoices since I had paid for the kids but I decided not to be too petty.  We had a few adults that were more than happy to do the activities with the kids. I won't share those pictures...LOL!

At 6, Trinity is interested in crafting anything (especially if it involves cutting up minuscule pieces of paper), slime, trampoline parks (although she has only been to one), drawing, and singing. I've been trying to figure out some activities for her to be involved in on a regular basis, but as for now, she's not interested.

She is being a little more adventurous with food and tells me I'm the best cook to Grandma Margaret, TT Chasity, Uncle Randy, and Mrs. Pearl (the summer camp nutritionist). 

She is in the 47th percentile for weight and the 97th percentile for height. A real life string bean!

She is a joy and has the most infectious laugh I've ever heard. She's not a morning person, and is showing interest in tasting decaf coffee thanks to her big cousin Madison.

She has also informed me that she no longer likes cake or cupcakes. Like what? Seriously, over night she was like nope I don't really eat cake and not cupcakes either because they are just small cakes. Tuh. So, for her birthday, I let the gymnastics place order a cake from Publix and I made her a cookie cake...which she also did not eat. But I will say it was probably the most delicious cookie I have ever made. I'll have to make it again to see. :)

The recipe for the cookie cake can be found here:
I didn't make the frosting because she apparently doesn't eat that anymore either. Go figure!

Now, we are preparing for her to enter the 1st grade! Time flies.

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
