• 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.
  • I want to giveaway one Supermom hoodie and monthly planner to a mom that has big goals for 2020!

  • 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?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

Holiday Table on a Budget & Holiday Home Tour

December 10, 2019

Is it me or did it seem like everyone had their Christmas tree up the day after Halloween? This weekend we bought a tree. I feel like I’m early even though some of you had your house decked out before Thanksgiving. Previous years, we would put a tree up a few days before Christmas because Mister refused to pay full price for a live tree. The girls were successful in persuading him to get a tree “early”. Now that my dining room is finally done, I wanted to share some budget-friendly items I found at the Dollar Tree and Hobby Lobby for a festive table. I also linked up with some amazing and creative bloggers to share our holiday styled homes. Keep reading for details.

So sorry that I haven’t shown you guys my updated dining room. Things have been so crazy trying to get so much work done in a short amount of time, that I’ve been moving at the speed of light and now it’s Christmas. Dining room details coming soon.

My dining table seats eight so place seatings can add up fast. After cruising the dollar store I came across some plates and chargers that don’t look like they were a dollar. These faux wood chargers are new to the Dollar Tree. If you see them, grab them because they will be gone. It took me months to find enough of these chargers for my table.

I don’t remember buying them, but I found some holiday floral stems in my stash that I must have purchased after Christmas last year. I usually head to the Dollar Tree for holiday florals.

I purchased the white vase and napkins from Hobby Lobby at 50% off. I learned how to fold the napkins on Pinterest and added some mistletoe berries.

I hope this inspires you to create a budget-friendly holiday table. I also wanted to share some more holiday inspo from some amazing ladies! I’ve teamed up with Unlikely Martha, Katrina Blair, Carmeon Hamilton, Live Pretty on a Penny, Home on Poplar Creek, HWTH Blog, Decorating Cents, She Does a Bunch, Polished Playhouse and Mona Lisa Styles. Please check them out and make sure you follow them for inspiration daily.
