• 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?
  • 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.

Mister’s Party by Park Avenue Events

August 5, 2014
Mister’s birthday party came and went.  We had such a fabulous time, our friends and family are still talking about it.  I called myself planning early so I wouldn’t be overwhelmed.  #WRONG.  A few weeks before the party I started to freak out and have nightmares that people would show up and I would have a bonnet on my head, wearing ratty sweats and a t-shirt.  I started venting on twitter.  After my rant, I got an email from Hester, the owner of Park Avenue Events saying she would like to help me out with the event I was planning.  Look at Gawd! 

After I received the email from Park Avenue Events, I went to the site to check them out.  My mouth was hanging open looking at all the beautiful weddings and events she has planned.  She even planned one of Kim Zolciak’s (from RHOA) baby showers.  I was a little intimidated but I called her up anyway.  The owner, Hester, is the sweetest young lady.  We met up and the nightmares stopped and the rest was history.

Mister’s party originally started out as a Mad Men themed party.  I was scared it would get a little too corny so I just settled on an early 60’s theme.  I showed Hester what I liked and she took it from there.  The estate table was all I imagined it to be.  It was so nice for Mister and all his friends and family to sit at one table to have dinner for his birthday.

The Park Avenue Events team set everything up.  I was able to head back to the hotel to get dress and be confident that everything was perfect.  Instead of doing a usual slide show, Hester thought it would nice to place black and white photos in frames around the party.  Too bad I didn’t have enough time to find old pictures (or pics without me).

Yes, this cake has a 5-0 on it.  Mister turned 50!  That’s my little secret.  Mister may be 50, but he is the finest 50 year old man that I know!  I didn’t believe him when he told me his age when we met 10 years ago, he had to show me I.D.  He’s sorta like Benjamin Button.  Cake was made by Barb the Cake Lady in Atlanta. Isn’t it awesome!

I so excited to throw Mister this big party because he deserves it.  I would not have been able to pull it off if it wasn’t for the Park Avenue Events team!  The team stayed throughout the party, making sure everything was handled while I danced and had a robot battle with Mister.   If you are in need of a wedding or event planner in Georgia (or Vegas), I highly recommend Park Avenue Events.

What do you think of the decor?  Did you use an event planner for your wedding day?  In case you missed it, click HERE to see what we wore to the party.

P.S. My photographer canceled so these are the best pictures I have.

    So mad I missed it. Looks like the team did an amazing job. I’m thinking about planning a little shindig for next year for our 10th anniversary since we didn’t have a wedding. May have to dial them up.
