• Sun came out this weekend in Atlanta but it’s gone again.  This hoodie from @mikaela.pabon line is bringing me spring vibes today.  I’m also going on my first field trip with Peyton’s class.  Pray for me and send 🍷.
  • Yesterday I laid around watching HGTV and thought about how dreams can become reality. I still can’t believe this is my bathroom. God blessed us with a new bathroom via a leak. It was stressful and we still had to come out of pocket but here we are! Dreams are possible with faith, hard work and perseverance. A lot of us started with nothing but here we are.  Don’t give up. Once I get my life together I plan on producing some of the content I promised y’all. #heytrinashome #babyshopahome #bathroomremodel
  • This pretty little lady has her first science fair next week! She did a fun experiment that I’ll share once’s it’s complete. I’ve taken on the role as creative director. That means her display is going to be doing the most. I remember how bad my projects looked when I was little because I had to do everything by myself. This is my chance to redeem myself 😆. How involved do you get in your child’s projects? Links to this look on the blog (in profile).
  • I heard it’s #nationaldrinkwineday. I thought that was everyday 🤔. I said I would keep wine to the weekends but since it’s a holiday.... 🥂. I also want to take a poll, how often do you have a drink? Daily, weekly, social or never? 📷 @kaynjames
  • Yesterday I had the honor of speaking at @trust_your_strength first mama mixer.  The founder @alena0916 even presented a few mother’s including myself a Supermom award.  Hearing all the stories from these ladies I don’t feel worthy because I don’t know if I would have the strength to go through what they’ve been through.  Alena herself deserves all the awards.  She put on this amazing event and is passionate about supporting nicu moms of color. She deserves all the awards. Thanks for having me! PS, I’m not short, these ladies are extra tall 😆.
  • Be your own Valentine and make sure you show yourself some love! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or not, loving yourself is the most important. ❤️
  • Put together a quick & easy Valentine board inspired by @rosalynndaniels.  She made a dessert board and since I’m on a charcuterie board kick, this is perfect. 
What’s included: 
Flowers from Mr. Grapes, choc strawberries (bought the dip cup of chocolate), blueberry muffins (jiffy mix), bowl of choc covered pretzels, and Hershey kisses.  The box of chocolates are from the dollar tree. I put some little lip balms I bought for them on the board. #charchuterie
  • My main gals on Galentine’s Day! They are both out of school tomorrow so i need to figure out what we’re going to do 🤔. Outfit dets on the blog.
  • Happy Galentine’s Day! I’ve been blessed to have some amazing women in my life! From my OG besties to my blogger boos and all of you that show love on the daily! Love you all! #blackgirlmagic #galentinesday 📷 @kaynjames
  • My 3 dates for Valentine’s Day! I’m trying to do better at telling my family and friends that I love them more and followed with kisses and hugs.  Those words weren’t used a lot when I was growing up so it’s something I have to be mindful of.  Praise God for breaking generational patterns.

Happy 1st Birthday Harper

September 17, 2016

ONE!  Harper is ONE today!  This first year has flown by.  I swear I just left the hospital.  I need my baby girl to hit the pause button.  Harper is the sweetest and chunkiest little thing. She may not give strangers the time of day but she’s full of personality.  bday-8-1bday-1 bday-5 bday-9 bday-10

Harper is in the 98 percentile for her height and weight (juicy).  She’s already wearing size 24 month clothing.  Harper should hold the record for the baby with the longest and thickest hair.  I have no clue where that came from.  Her hobbies include eating paper, talking on her toy phone, shaking pill bottles and facetiming grandma.  She refuses to take a sippy cup and loves to sleep between mommy and daddy.  That last one will be changing soon.

One already.  I still can’t believe I’m the mother of these two beautiful girls!  Why do they have to grow up so fast?  I’m blessed.  A major thug tear will be shed today.  Don’t forget to leave Harper birthday wishes in the comments and follow me on Instagram HERE and Snapchat (HERE) to get a sneak peek of Harper’s birthday celebration.

    My baby turned 1 yesterday! Wow, I’m impressed with how much hair your daughter has! And she’s walking really well. My daughter is being stubborn and refusing to walk. She’s been cruising on furniture for a long time so I thought she would have walked by now. And she hates sippy cups! It’s frustrating.
