• My mom’s favorite church song is Grace & Mercy. When @pintsizefaith they sent me these shirts, they didn’t know.  I believe this was a message from my mom that his Grace & Mercy will bring me through. Thank you @pintsizefaith  for all the inspiring messages.
  • The time is always right to do what is right - MLK. Words I try to live by! If you visit Memphis, go by the Lorraine Motel. So many emotions just knowing this is where he took his last steps.
  • I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?

Harper’s Hip Hop Hooray Party

September 18, 2018

My baby girl is 3 years old!  Every year I say I’m not going to have a party at my house… what do I do for the 3rd year in a row, have a party at my house.  Technically this was the after party.  We took the kids to an indoor play center to run like crazy and then we came back to the house to eat and celebrate.  I know, it’s a little bootleg but I was last minute putting this party together and I saved a ton of money.  Harper is a music lover and she loves when mommy is rapping.  I thought this theme would be perfect for her.  I wanted to put a girly twist on the Hip Hop theme.  My party planner,  Swanky Rose set everything up while we were at the play center.  Check out all the details.  Links to everything below.

Please excuse the quality of the photos.  I took them on my phone.

Boom Box boxes, Amazon | Cup Caketoppers and water bottle, Etsy | Gold Balloons DIY, Hobby Lobby | Cake, Publix

Swanky Rose Events did a great job as usual.  She’s done all of Harper’s parties.  Check out Harper’s 1st Aloha party HERE and her Two Wild party HERE

My favorite feature in Harper’s Hip Hooray is the chain link balloons. Let me tell you how we put them together and saved a ton of money.  When I saw the chain ballons on Etsy they were $35-$50!  For some balloons.  I noticed that they were only O/0 balloons and connected them.  So I went to a few Hobby Lobby stores and found about 12 of them for .65 each.  I think the letter balloons are normally $2 each so that’s still a better deal than what I saw on Etsy.

I mentioned before my rule is to have parties up until age 5.  After that, we’ll have smaller celebrations besides a few milestone birthdays.
