  • Supermom vibes in the carpool line! The schools are getting all this @supermomculture Magic this school year! Thank you guys for all the support! Hats are almost sold out! Beanies & bags are gone 🙅🏾‍♀️. They will be restocked later this fall. Link in profile #supermom 📷 @kaynjames
  • Didn’t I just have Harper?! Geez! My baby’s 1st day of PreK 3 (yes, she’s 3!) was today and she basically acts like she runs the school. I think she was happy to have time away from mommy after the long summer. It was nice to have a few hours to myself. Now need to sit down and plan out all this time I have available (3.5 hrs) 😩. Mr swears the girls are gone 8 hrs a day and have so much free time 😒. #firstdayofschool
  • Nothing like having lunch dates with your girls while the kids are at school. Counting down to Harper’s first day. Follow @districtmotherhued for special discount on @supermomculture merch! This deal won’t be offered again for a while so 🏃🏾‍♀️ & look for this pic. #supermom #supermomculture 📷 @kaynjames
  • Why play outside when you can have @townctratcobb as your playground? #ad We recently enjoyed a family fun day of playing and shopping at Town Center at Cobb, then dinner and a drink in a cool light bulb container.

  • Came back from an amazing weekend in Durham, NC at the @theprevailingwoman conf back to Supermom mode. @letoyaluckett snatched all the edges when she said “If you are not kind to yourself, why would you expect someone else to treat us better than we treat ourselves?” My biggest takeaway is that I need to take care of myself so I can continue to be a supermom.  Gray tees and jean hats available now (bags are sold out)! Link in profile. #supermom #supermomculture
  • Sent my baby off to 4th grade this morning. She decided to wear a top she already had and she picked this hair style. She’s also excited to have a black woman teacher and principal. I was so hype that my little brown girl (only one in her grade) will get to see someone that looks like every day during her education journey. #firstdayofschool #blackgirlmagic #atlbraids #targetstyle
  • I’m having an amazing time @sheprevailsconference by @theprevailingwoman. If you watch my stories you will see them in action 💃🏾. I talked about the balancing act on a panel with @_kayalex_ & @themillennialmamma. The consensus is there is no balance.  I’ll get deeper in to that in a post later because I think we can all relate to that.  Thanks to @suakokobetty I was looking super fly in my kimono and matching shorts. My shoes are like 10 years old 😩. #sheprevails #prevailingwoman
  • The final days of summer! #AD We recently had a family fun day at @townctratcobb. Growing up, my mom and I would go to the mall every Saturday.  It was always an adventure.  Now, Town Center at Cobb is filled with family fun activities and of course, great shopping!  Beat the heat and enjoy a fun family day. Town Center at Cobb has great kid-friendly events and special offers for Family program members.

  • Did you know I had sisters?  Here are my two older sisters (far left and far right), my niece and my beautiful mom. I don’t think I talk about my sisters enough since people assume I don’t have any. I also have an older brother but he’s 😜. I’m the baby. We definitely don’t agree on a lot of things but when you mess with one of us, you’ll get the wrath from all of us. My #rideordies #nationalsisterday
  • So it’s #nationalsistersday or something like that. My girls are at the age where everything results in a fight, like wrestling match fights. But when one gets in trouble the other is sad.  Harper is already a ride or die sister. If Peyton gets in trouble, Harper takes it upon herself to tell us off and that we need to apologize. The funniest thing. Does anyone else have kids that fight all the time? #disneymom  #nationalsisterday

Jekyll Island Family Vacation Recap {Video}

April 10, 2017

This time last week we were laying on the beach playing in the sand.  Back to reality.  Peyton headed back to school today eager to share her Jekyll Island spring break details with her friends.  I don’t blame her.  It felt good to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days with the family.  I thought I would share more details from our trip and stay at the Jekyll Island Club in case you are looking for a quick family getaway. 

Jekyll Island is located on the Atlantic Coast, about an hour south of Savannah.  It’s just 5 hours from Atlanta.  My tolerance level for road trips is 6 hours max in the car.  Thankfully, our road trip was not affected by the collapse of 85.  Jekyll Island is the perfect weekend getaway if you’re an ATlien.

The vibe of Jekyll Island is laid back.  Everyone is on chill mode.  You won’t find crowds or hustle and bustle here.  The guest is mainly made of retirement age adults and families.  You won’t find the teen spring break scene here.

Where to Stay:

  • Our accommodations were provided by the Jekyll Island Club Resort.  Built in the late 1800s, Jekyll Island Club Resort is one of Georgia’s few historic hotels.  When you pull up to the resort, you are wowed by the historic charm of this resort. I felt like I was about to meet the Queen. Not Queen Bey, but Elizabeth.  Jekyll Island Club Resort may be well over 100 years old but the preservation of the grounds are incredible.  Service at Jekyll Island Club was top notch.  The staff was always eager to help us. The staff did their best to make sure our stay was as pleasant as possible.  Hands down, it was the best hotel on the island.

What to do:

  • Hit the beach.  Jekyll Island beaches are easy to get to and plenty of room for the kids to run free (make sure you watch the video).  I would suggest bringing your own folding chairs or a blanket to spend the day at the beach.
  • Visit the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.  Just steps away from the Jekyll Island Club Resort.  It’s only $5 for kids and $7 for adults.
  • Go for a family bike ride on the beautiful trails.  We wanted to bike ride but every time we were ready, it was raining. Bikes are conveniently available at Jekyll Island Club Resort.  They even have bikes that kids can ride on the back. Cost is about $12 a day.
  • Shop at the new Beach Village.  This a new area in Jekyll Island that is home to a few small shops and restaurants.
  • Head to the water park.  Yes, Jekyll Island has a water park.  It doesn’t open until the summer.  Next time I’ll plan a trip when it is open.
  • Go golfing.  Jekyll Island has a mini, 18 and 9 hole golf available.

Where to eat:

  • My favorite spot was Love Shack BBQ Shrimp & Yardbird.  Very reasonably priced and delish!
  • Red Bug Motors Pizza is also a great budget friendly place to take the family.  A large pizza is about $15.
  • If you want to get all fancy, make reservations at the Grand Dining Room at the Jekyll Island Club Resort.
  • If you want some fast food, there is a full-service Dairy Queen on the island.  We stopped there and picked up some hotdogs.  I may or may not have gotten a blizzard.

This is my first time at a Georgia beach and it won’t be my last. Have you been to Jekyll Island?  What’s your favorite thing to do or eat at Jekyll Island?
