  • Thank you @toyotausa for having me at the Culture of Gratitude Brunch celebrating women. Grateful to be in the room with so many awesome Black Women. So inspiring! #toyota #a3cfestival #a3c
  • Is there someone outside of your parents that you were able to confide or look up to when you were growing up? One of my favorite characters on @davidmakesman on @owntv is Mx. Elijah. People like Mx. Elijah, who are unapologetically themselves, can be instrumental as part of the village in a young persons life. Mx. Elijah is one of those people that you can confide in without being judged. My older sisters and my niece have been there for me like Mx. Elijah. They constantly look out for me and are there for me when I need them. It definitely takes a village.  Learn more about Mx. Elijah character on @davidmakesman on Wednesday 9/8c on #OWNTV #davidmakesman #ad
  • Thanking God for another year! These last 6 months have been rough but I thank God for keeping me covered. Celebrate with my by taking advantage of the @supermomculture hoodie sale! Ends tonight. #libraseason
  • Felt cute, might delete later (jokes). Lol 😂 I’ve been wanting to use that caption. Hello from #Aruba 👋🏾. Having a ball celebrating my friend nuptials. This is one lit wedding celebration (watch stories). Service isn’t great so trying to post when I can. Glad I was able to wear this @suakokobetty ensemble one more time before it gets cold. My bow tube top was on the clearance sale at Zara this past spring.
  • Your girls got a birthday coming up (10/8)! I’ll be celebrating in a tropical location this wknd for my friends wedding. I won’t need a hoodie but you guys will 😆. My birthday gift to you is a sale on @supermomculture hoodies! Link in profile.  I’m wearing a medium in the hoodie (unisex sizes)! ♎️ #supermomculture Wearing @thelipbar Hot Mama
  • My little fire chief wanted to inform you, along with @nfpadotorg, that #nationalfirepreventionweek is coming Oct 6-13. #NFPA has made it easy to teach kids on all levels about fire safety. Click link in profile for free games, videos and printables to help your kids learn more about fire safety.  You may learn something yourself. I know I did.  Have you discuss a fire safety plan with your kids? #ad
  • When you become a mother, you want the best for your kids.  Watching @davidmakesman on @OWNTV reminds me that no matter how challenging motherhood is, we never give up.  The character Gloria, who is a mother of two boys, is faced challenges trying to raise them on her own. No matter how hard it gets, she continues to work hard and fight for her kids to have a better life.  My mom was a "Gloria", never giving up when faced with challenges while she was trying to break a cycle.  I think we all know or maybe are a "Gloria" and can relate to her story very well! Tune in to the powerful series #DavidMakesMan on OWN on Wednesdays at 9/8c #AD
  • I used 3 packs of @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair in Suga Mama and one pack of exotic curl in coffee (said wrong in video). My edges can’t handle single braids so cornrows it is! #latchedandhooked #bohobraids
  • Obsessed with Harper’s Enchanted Fourest theme! Thx @swankyroseevents for the set up! I DIY’d the grass letters.  Details on how I did them on the blog.  Super easy but costly 😩. Link in profile
  • Kimonos are a woman’s best friend.  So flattering! I think I have like 20 and I’m looking for more! Who else can relate 🙋🏾‍♀️
  • That’s a wrap! Had a blast celebrating Harper’s 4th Birthday at @tumblesjohnscreek. The kids had so much fun at this new facility (opened last week). The staff was amazing and kept the kids entertained the whole time. I’ll be sharing more details on Harper’s Enchanted Fourest soon! If you’re in the Atlanta area make sure you check out #tumblesjohnscreek  they have STEAM and gym classes. I’m off for rest of the weekend, mama tide 😩.

30 Day Protein Challenge: Easy Beef + Veggie Stir-fry

September 30, 2016

This post is brought to you by The Beef Checkoff and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. In my never-ending journey to eating right, I’ve learned a few things about myself.  I love carbs but they don’t love me back.  I tend to fill up on carbs to compensate for not getting enough protein in my diet.  When I overload on carbs, I feel sluggish and hungry for the rest of the…
